Valentine’s gift ideas

valentine's gift ideas

Valentine’s day – love it or hate it – is every year one more commercial date to push us all purchase and spend money, on the one side, while receiving some extra care on the other.

I leave the pro and cons up to you and whom you love, but if I had to suggest somebody what to buy to a gal who’s already everything, but loves beauty, my ideas would be crystal clear!

  1. A SPECIAL SCENTย  – If your lady loves scents and flowery kind of scents in particular, such as Jo Malone Tuberose and Vintage Gardenia, Gucci Envy, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, Diptyque Do Son, Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, Dior J’adore and Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue, just to make a few examples, her Valentine’s day could smell like Rosa Nobile by Acqua di Parma. A charming meeting between the elegance of rose, peony, violet and wood lily and the freshness of citrus, celebrated by the hot seduction of black pepper.
  2. A MAGNETIC EYE SHADOW – If your lady is romantic, cheerful, imaginative and smiling, on Valentine’s day celebrate her beauty with a special make up pick in which all the genius of the Italian fashion brand Gucci, can be perceived. It’s the Mono Eye shadow in #iconic ottanio a beautiful watery green that reminds of the enchanting feathers of tropical birds, as well as of the precious enamels and stones in the ancient jewels.
  3. A SOPHISTICATE PALETTE – If your lady is a million colors in just one color, mysterious, complex, ever-changing and without a unique label and definition, try to surprise her with the new YSL COUTURE Variation Palette in #01. Inspired by fashion fabric swatches, it ranges from light to dark natural colors ,covering all the possible textures and finishes, from matte to metallic, from satin to iridescent.
  4. A SENSUAL COFFRET – If you lost the chance to make your lady this present for Christmas, you’ll have a second opportunity on Valentine’s day. But hurry up! Nars digital world lip pencil coffret is a limited edition of lip pencils we all go crazy for! The set contains 5 wonderful shades, from a more neutral coral, to a shocking pink, featuring also other 3 easy to wear colors.
  5. A LUXURY VIBRATION – If your lady is an artist or loves everything about art, such as painting, photography, cinema, architecture, literature and poetry, the artistic power of this palette will captivate her. Hourglass The Modernist eye shadow palette is probably the most original one for its unusual pattern and it offers 5 effortlessly blendable shades to give intensity to the look.
  6. A SUBLIME LUMINOSITY – If your lady loves everything sparkling and infused with light, from jewels to glitters, sequins, crystals, shiny metals and surfaces, but has also a very rock attitude, YSL Palette Collector Lumiรจre du Jour will wake up her inner luminosity. It’s a pink highlighting powder to use after foundation, preciously kept into a fashionable case, adorned with light pink and black sparkles.
  7. AN EXQUISITE KISS –ย  If your lady is a very sweet and delicate one, her beauty collection cannot miss on Valentine’s day a pot of By Terry Baume de Rose. You too will be benefiting from this rose scented balm for lips and cuticles all celebrities love for its unique nourishing properties. It’s rich in vitamin E, essential oils, shea butter and is stored into a luxury packaging.

But what if your lady was all these different ladies in only one person? Then indulge no more! Buy her the entire selection! You’ll make her feel like the happiest in the world!

      Hi Christina and thanks for stopping by. YSL has been doing wonderful things lately, even innovating formulas and presenting something special at every level: foundations, lip products, mascaras and of course eye palettes have been improved a lot. This for instance is a good example. Enjoy your week!
