The best in Valentine’s beauty

The best in Valentine’s beauty

Valentine’s beauty to buy for yourself.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Heart & Arrows Collection, from €34

If you’re running low on Touche Eclat, now is the time to stock up – the cult-hero has had a heartfelt Valentine’s revamp, €35. Rouge Volupte Shine, €34 also has a new Valentine’s day outfit, with hearts that match the shade of your lipstick inside.

Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Parfum Fiori, 50ml, €87

It’s Si as you know and love it, with the addition of a floral burst of neroli that will last much longer than a bouquet of flowers, in a chic new coat of millennial pink.

MAC Boom Boom Bloom Collection, from €20

MAC’s new petal inspired limited edition collection includes a pink sparkling Prep + Prime Fix +, €22, pastel and berry shades of highlighter, €31.50, all the pink lipsticks and glosses you could ever need and a dreamy Cherry Blossom Palette €33.50, that deserves a place in your heart.

Sculpted by Aimee Connolly The Lip Quad Collection, €30

Available in shades of nude and bright pinks, Aimee Connolly’s next gamechanger is two versions of a four-in-one lip liner, disguised as your favourite pen from school. Longwearing and non-drying, reduce your make-up bag with four lip options in one go, or if you’re very skilled, line from darkest shade on the outer lip line and fade inwards to the lightest shade for an ombre effect that gives the illusion of fuller lips.

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Top Coat, €30

Add a glittering layer of translucent sparkle to any lip or make a natural lip glossy with Lancome’s new shimmering top coat.

Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick Shades of Paris and New York

Laura Mercier’s creamy, hyperpigmented matte lipsticks have four additional shades of hot pink, burnt orange and vivid purple tones that give full coverage in one stroke and won’t budge all day.

L’Occitane Rose Eau de Toilette, 50ml, €52

Raspberry, rose and lychee fade to a white musk and patchouli in L’Occitane’s latest olfactory offering, with three additional Fragrance Waters to personalise it to your liking.

Loubivalentine Coffret Rouge Nude and Rouge Louboutin, €120

Christian Louboutin’s Valentine collection is as luxuriously packaged as ever, with his iconic heel-inspired nail varish and mermaid-tail inspired Loubilaque Lip Lacquer now in limited edition red-sole red and the exact shade of buttery nude you’ve spent your whole life trying to find.

Jo Malone Limited Edition Red Caps

Jo Malone has a limited edition red hat on for Valentine’s Day plus a heart-shaped box where you can add an engraved message or date, in selected boutiques.
