It’s almost that time of year, when we wait with baited breath to see whether or not we will get that special delivery on the “day of love.”
But who needs a rose delivery when there are so many amazing rose beauty products?
Don’t wait for a gift to show up, go out and #treatyourself – and if it isn’t Venus De Fleur, opt for these much longer lasting rosy Valentine’s Day gifts that aren’t roses.
Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick
What: A lipstick as dark as the reddest rose.
Why: You know how hard it can be to find a lipstick that is both beautifully pigmented and has a perfectly creamy texture. Look no further than the MatteTrance Lipstick by Pat McGrath. While so many matte lipsticks get dry and flaky, this luxuriously buttery lip offers many shades and a perfect V-Day lip. We’re recommending Mcmenamy, a deep gothic burgundy red.
Juliette Has a Gun Lady Vengeance EDP
What: A rose perfume that’s more glam than grandma.
Why: Bold. Edgy. Sensual. Three words to perfectly describe the musky yet feminine scent that you find with Lady Vengeance. With notes of Bulgarian rose, Ppatchouli, lavender and vanilla, you get unparalleled elegance with a modern edge. Proving you don’t have to settle for something too flowery or too masculine when choosing the ideal spritz for your night out. (Editor’s note: One of my top three all time favorite scents! ~Stef)
Herbivore Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio
What: Rose goes tropical with this beautifully scented trio.
Why: Winter is SUCH a tough time for skin, especially if you live somewhere that is cold for months on end. And, it’s hard to feel sexy when your skin feels like a lizard. Plus, with summer and warmer days on my mind, I am doing everything to make my skin glowy and vibrant.
Huda Beauty Rose Gold Edition Eyeshadow Palette
What: A pink palette that’s both shocking AND demure!
Why: Not exactly rose, but rose gold is close. Especially when it is in a palette this gorgeous! With many gorgeous neutrals, and even more gorgeous brights, this palette is perfect for when you’re feeling a little daring.
Where to Buy: Sephora ($65)
Deborah Lippmann Bed of Roses Nail Polish Set
What: A collection of six perfect pink polishes.
Why: These easy-to-wear, rosy-nude polishes are said to flatter all skin tones—from light to dark, and from cool to warm. But with a brand so reputable, this range of amazing pinks is exactly what you need to complete your Valentine’s Day look.
Whether you’re spending a romantic night out, or loving on your Netflix account, these products are an easy to celebrate well past the 14th. we heartsters – what’s your favorite rose-themed beauty product? Tell us in the comments!
