Regardless of what The Bachelor says, we believe all women deserve a rose. In addition to its pretty design (seriously — you may want to look at it for a few days before using it), it is made with vegan coconut, rose, and grapeseed oils to show your skin some TLC. We suggest scooping up a few extras for your gals who may need some, too.
If you’re going to splurge on a box of chocolates this year, make it this one. The latest palette from Too Faced’s Chocolate Eye Shadow Collection contains 14 new shades — from Sprinkles to Dark Truffle — each infused with cocoa powder and encased in little heart-shaped pans. The palette also features a wide mirror for making touchups on the go.
These new heart-shaped reusable makeup sponges from Sephora add just the right amount of flirt to a morning makeup routine. The softer shades are for applying powder products, and the brighter pink is for liquids and creams. They also contain antibacterial properties that hold up when washed, so you can stave off breakouts while you get your glam on.
Give your gals some lip (the good kind, that is) with to these adorable, smacker-shaped tins. Both the honey (red) and blueberry (fuchsia) formulas give off a subtly sweet scent. They also contain vitamin E and other hydrating ingredients to keep your lips moisturized in the face of cold weather.
Like a little love letter to the skin, this new triple-milled soap from Fresh has “treat yourself” written all over it. It contains crushed cocoa and coconut shells for exfoliating, and shea butter and coconut oil for added moisture. Save it for “me nights” or work it into your regular shower routine to make this entire month feel more special.
A quad for your squad? Yes, please! This set from Sephora includes four flirty red and pink shades in long-lasting matte formulas that withstand late nights out with the crew (and all the Instagram snaps that come with). The formulas also contain rosehip seed oil to prevent overdrying, so you won’t feel like a toad if you happen to stumble upon a potential prince.
Laughter is the best cosmetic (after all, who can resist someone who’shaving a great time?), which is why we love this cheeky makeup pouch. Oh yeah — it just so happens to house the beloved mascara, highlighter, and brow gel from the San Francisco brand to boot. Keep it for yourself or give it to the friend who always cracks you up.
This beautifully packaged body scrub has the potential to turn a regular bath into your own personal spa. The formula is superfine so it’s easy to really work into trouble areas, leaving skin looking and feeling extra polished. The light, floral scent is also fantastic for your senses.
Gwen Stefani’s latest products from her Urban Decay collaboration will help you get her glow (because she is totally having a hot moment in the spotlight, right?). It contains six blendable shades for various skin tones and occasions. The packaging, also selected by the singer, is so glamorous that you’ll feel like you’re getting ready backstage before your big debut.
