in love with loveTuesday, February 05, 2013
What's not to love about Valentine's day? The rom-coms, the deliciously themed chocolate, the flutter of romance in the air. Whether I'm flying solo or in a relationship, it's definitely my favourite superfluous holiday. I especially love love themed products.
1) PAUL & JOE | POWDER CS | TRUE LOVE (link!)
Paul & Joe always get me with their packaging. Of course the quality of their products is great, too. I especially love these blush pots. The packaging is adorable and the engraved love birds call to the inner hopeless romantic in me.
2) TOO FACED | SWEETHEARTS PERFECT FLUSH BLUSH (link!)
Aside from the cute packaging, this is actually a lovely blush. The three colours can be used individually or all together for a pretty (shimmery) pink / peach glow. It sort of reminds me of Benefit Sugarbomb, but with more shimmer & a little more pigmentation.
3) LANCÔME | ROUGE IN LOVE LIPSTICK (link!)
I really like these lipsticks, from the formula to the available shades. I also love the packaging, I find the silver cases kind of romantic.
I change my phone case probably as often as I change my shirt, so why not have a specially themed one? I always find the coolest (and most unexpected) things at Urban Outfitters.
5) NICOLE BY OPI | HAVE A HEART
Instead of wearing your heart on your sleeve, how about wearing your heart on your nails? This is a quick and easy way to spice up your polish. No steady hand required.
6) JO MALONE | RED ROSES COLOGNE (link!)
Have you ever smelled Jo Malone's fragrances? No? I recommend you do so immediately! They smell divine. My favourite is Nectarine Blossom, but I think Red Roses is a perfect fit for the day of love.
7) PANDORA | FOREVER LOVE RING (link!)
I owned this ring once. I say "once" because I lost it a few months ago. I am definitely going to repurchase though because a) it's a great ring to wear alone or to layer with, and b) it's cute!
Do you love love themed products too? Or do you shy away from this manufactured holiday? x
