Whether your Valentine’s day scenario involves partying with your single girlfriends or cuddling up with your boo by the fire, we sincerely hope you have an appropriately scandalous time! To prepare you for the sexiest day of the year, we’ve compiled a list of beauty must-haves to help get you in the mood. Our favorite? Philosophy Candy Hearts ($20), a sweet-smelling set stocked with two tubes of lightly scented, sheer lip shines.
Bare Escentuals Buxom Lashes Mascara Special Effects Blue Noir ($18) is a paraben-free volumizing mascara blended with a fancy, special-effects color that shifts from blue to black depending on the light. Seriously, it must be seen to be believed.
Whether you enjoy a relaxing Valentine’s Day soak a dieux or by yourself, spike it with Fresh Sake Bath ($80). Blended with 50% sake, this wildly decadent soak actually emits an intoxicating, heady scent when mixed with super-hot water—plus, it leaves skin feeling baby-soft.
Purple Lab Luvah Lip Gloss Duo in Rich Jerk ($24) comes with a rich berry gloss and a rosy shimmer—worn together, they give your lips an irresistably kissable sheen.
The beauty gods were shining on us when they produced Too Faced Walk of Shame Set ($38). The adorable satin clutch contains Shadow Insurance, Primed & Poreless, an exclusive Trio Compact, Lip of Luxury Lipstick, breath mints, and a pink travel toothbrush.
Mood lighting? Very important. Set the scene with Archipelago Botanicals Pillar Candle in Paramour ($18), an aphrodisiac blend of papaya, mango, and pomegranate.
Striking the perfect balance between dangerous goth and glamour girl, Rescue Nail Polish in Black Russian ($18) is a black polish spiked with glimmering, ruby red sparkle flecks. Festive!
For the name alone, we’re obsessed with this Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker XL ($10.99), an extra-strength lip plumper blended with an outrageous amount of collagen. Of course, most of us don’t really need lip plumper, but the tingly, swollen feeling it gives lips is undeniably sexy.
Dior Miss Dior Cherie ($59) is the perfect Valentine’s Day fragrance. A blend of green tangerine, violette, and pink jasmine, the scent is both playful and sultry—plus, the bottle is ridiculously chic.
Wearing a clingy camisole-ish top that requires going braless? Prevent a scandalous situation with Nippies Patch of Freedom in Hot Lips ($15 for 2 pair), a pack of adorably saucy adhesive nipple covers.
