Come Valentine’s Day, it’s strongly encouraged to indulge in an entire box of decadent chocolates. But keep in mind, the 14th isn’t the only day to treat yourself — YSL‘s new soft brown mascara knows how to hug your lashes just so and the glow that Jones Road The Bonzer gives skin is like a kiss from the sun. You don’t need a date on the calendar to blush with greatness. A touch of Kulfi Beauty‘s cheek tint mimics your natural flush, as does a swirl of one of the vibrant Haus Labs pigments dusted right along your cheekbones.
On our lips, we go back and forth from a low-maintenance balm (like Glossier‘s new and improved Balm Dotcom) to dialing things up with a pigment-packed liquid lip (like MAC Locked Kiss Ink 24HR Lipcolour) when we want to make a statement. If your preference happens to fall somewhere in the middle, we suggest Lawless‘s new Forget The Filler Lip-Plumping Line-Smoothing Tinted Balm Stick. Choices are good, as they say, hence all the options here.
And because we will never say no to a fresh mani-pedi combo, OPI‘s vibrant new nail lacquers have us excited to switch things up on our nails and toes. For all these new products and more, keep scrolling.
Haus Labs by Lady Gaga Color Fuse Blush
Don’t be shocked by how beautifully this hot pink Haus Labs by Lady Gaga Color Fuse Blush blends into your skin — or by all the compliments that will ensue. As you dust on this pigmented powder, it becomes more like a cream that blurs and mimics your natural flush.
YSL Lash Clash Extreme Volume Mascara in Brown
We knew we loved a mascara that added volume and drama. But all it took was a few coats of YSL Lash Clash Extreme Volume Mascara in Brown to open our eyes to how pretty a rich, chocolatey shade can be for a slightly softer look (instead of the typical inky black). And, of course, it’s smudge-proof because that’s a nonnegotiable.
MAC Locked Kiss Ink 24HR Lipcolour
There’s no question about it: MAC knows a thing or two about lip color (ahem, Spice lip liner and Velvet Teddy lipstick). Joining their stacked lineup is MAC Locked Kiss Ink 24HR Lipcolour (available in 16 shades such as cherry red and petal pink), a liquid lipstick that promises to last through eating, drinking, and hour-long chats with your best friend. What’s more: Chapped lips aren’t a concern, thanks to hydrating coconut oil and shea butter.
Jones Road The Bronzer
Despite the fact that the last time you actually saw the sun was on the way to the grocery store last week for some overpriced eggs, a touch of Jones Road The Bronzer (on your cheeks, forehead, and the bridge of your nose) will have you looking fresh from the beach on Zoom. The oil-absorbing powder is available in seven shades that all create a healthy-looking glow.
Lawless Forget The Filler Lip-Plumping Line-Smoothing Tinted Balm Stick
To the naked eye, Lawless Forget The Filler Lip-Plumping Line-Smoothing Tinted Balm Stick might look like an average lip balm, but when you swipe it on you’ll see it’s so much more. The rosehip oil- and shea butter-infused bullet (available in six sheer shades like bubblegum pink and cranberry red) visibly plumps your lips for a cushiony, luscious finish while depositing a hint of color.
Kulfi Beauty Mehndi Moment Blush
We don’t plan on running a marathon, but nothing is stopping us from getting that I-just-ran-a-quick-mile flush — without actually having to get our heart rate up. The creamy Kulfi Beauty Mehndi Moment Blush is our secret to doing exactly that. A few dots of the bold color melts in like a second skin and our cheeks stay rosy until we wash it off.
OPI Me, Myself and OPI Collection
The OPI Me, Myself and OPI Collection was inspired by the metaverse — and we have to say, these shades are out-of-this-world pretty. That said, we plan to polish our nails and toes for an adventure (or just because) on planet Earth with a combination of two of the 12 feel-good hues. First up: Switch to Portrait Mode, a pearly pink, paired with NFTease Me, a vivid turquoise.
Glossier Balm Dotcom
Dare we say Glossier‘s cult favorite Balm Dotcom just got more… bomb? Now made with moisturizing castor jelly (instead of petrolatum), the formula is officially vegan and officially keeping our lips from cracking. Our favorite tweak, though, is the new applicator tip and cap that allow for a more sanitary and mess-free application.
