Makeup & Beauty To Buy for Yourself This Valentine’s Day

makeup valentine's day

You can’t always depend on your boy or your girl to pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. If you have wonderful girlfriend chances are she might be a bit more considerate with gifting than those of you with boyfriends, because, you know, sometimes boys are a little clueless when it comes to makeup and beauty (I mean just look at all the “My Boyfriend does my makeup” youTube videos!). Not that all boys are, I’ve known some considerate ones but some are so very clueless about makeup and beauty it’ll make you wince.

In that case here a few makeup and beauty gifts to buy for yourself this Valentine’s Day!

Fragrance seems one of the more popular Valentine’s Day gift offerings and considering Spring is here soon you’ll find a lot of new scents to choose from. Here are a few that I think would make great gifts to spoil yourself with!

Replica By the Fireplace
If you’re a fan of Bath & Body Works Marshmallow Fireside you’ll likely love this warm smoky blend. A warm, inviting, rich vanilla accord note combined with pink pepper, clove, chesnust, and balsam to create a rather toasty, smoky blend of toasted marshmallows. This one will remind you of a cold Winter’s night curled up by the fireside with your loved one. An absolute must and keeper for those who like unique fragrances.

Urban Outfitters Gourmand Fragrance in Macaron Rose
Rose gets a kick of sugary, candied Turkish delight in this sweet, floral gourmand fragrance!

Urban Outfitters Adorn Fragrances in Tiger Eye
If unique fragrances are your thing you’ll love this warm, comforting blend of sandalwood, moss, and suede.

Molinard Eau De Parfum in Vanille
Molinard’s blend of vanilla and heliotrope is positively dreamy for those who love rich, snuggle-y vanilla blends!

By Rosie Jane Eau De Parfum in Leila Lou
A few year’s ago Leila Lou was available in roll on perfume only but it has since been released in a spray mist. This blend is very, very unique and has notes of fresh cut grass with the sweetness of pear. This is truly a gorgeous fruity floral that has excellent wear and sillage.

Clean Reserve Six Piece Travel Spray Layering Collection
This set sold out when it originally launched but it is now available again! It includes six generously sizes samples of the newest Clean Reserve Fragrances each of which delivers has gorgeous, clean notes. Where them separately or combine two or three to create a unique fragrance all your own!

For those into beauty gadgetry, here’s a great gift pick!

Sigma Dry’N Shape Tower Eye or Face/Eye
I can’t think of a better gift for myself! This tower gives you a space to drip dry your brushes after a cleaning. Just clean your brushes, snap them onto the tower, and let them air dry. I can’t tell you how convenient this is as typically I have to line my entire bathroom floor with towels when I do a big clean of all my brushes and lay the brushes on the towels.

And for any makeup lover new lipsticks and mascara should make for a perfect little V-Day giftee!

Clinique Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Color & Primer (Review and Swatches) is my new go to lip color courtesy the moist, shiny layer of color they provide!

Available in purple and gold the new Lancome Hypnรดse Chromatics Mascara Top Coat adds a pop of metallic color atop your favorite mascara and makes for great gift for those wanting a little new makeup!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    the UO Macaron Rose fragrance is delicious! I saw it at the register one day, sprayed it, and bought it instantly I loved it that much!

    • Isabella Muse

      It really is very pretty and unique especially for a fragrance exclusive to UO! Plus lasts for literally ages!

    I need that Brush drying tower (I dry mine with a DIY tower that I made using styrofoam suspended on 2 wine glasses), I have been waiting for something like this for a long time.
    I checked the Nordstrom website and it is not available but thanks for letting me know about this product because now I will keep checking the site.

    Sometimes, the way they are described, it almost makes me want to rush out and buy the fragrances you guys talk about. Then I remember I’m allergic to just about everything lol! I still like to read them though!
