Oh, Valentine’s Day. I’ve never been a fan of the day and much prefer to spend it at home than try to go out. This year Jared and I are going to stay in and cook together. We’re thinking about homemade sushi because that’s one of our favorite things to eat. Regardless of how you’re spending the holiday, it’s a good excuse to get your hands on some adorable new makeup. I’m sharing some new and old products that I think would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day look. If you’re not going out like me, these products would make amazing Galentine’s gifts for your girlfriends or are great just for normal use!
Recently I was gifted a selection of Paul & Joe makeup from the new Spring collection. Paul & Joe Beaute aims to embody the Parisian philosophy of enjoying life. You can tell that by the unique, whimsical packaging. Isn’t everything so cute?! The colors of the packaging and the products completely embody feminine and soft. You’ll notice there are a lot of pinks and cats throughout.
The primer is such a cute addition to my vanity and would be a gorgeous gift to all beauty lovers! It doesn’t work for me on my t-zone, however on my dry cheeks and chin this is a great moisturizing primer. It gives me a glowy base for my makeup and it’s just super fun to pump out. The cheek color called ‘Smitten Kitten’ is SO cute and I don’t even like cats. I didn’t use the cute puff that came with it but with a soft blush brush, this is a beautiful rosy pop of color to the cheeks. Again, the packaging is just super cute so it’s a great gift if not for yourself.
Now for the exciting stuff – I saved two products to give away to one of you! I thought the eyeshadow compact that fits into this case is so cute. The eyeshadows are shimmery which would create a really romantic eye look. Although it’s on trend to have matte eye looks, Valentine’s Day or any romantic date look isn’t complete without some shimmer. The best part about the compact is you can purchase blushes to fit into the same compact that fits the eyeshadow! Love that the cute packaging is reusable. Same goes with the lipstick case. I’ll also be giving away the lipstick case and cute cat lipstick. It looks too cute to use, so I wouldn’t judge if you used it as decoration rather than makeup.
