Let’s face it: Even if you have someone special to celebrate Valentine’s Day with, there’s a good chance of disappointment when it comes to presents. Case in point: My ex-boyfriend once gifted me a stock pot. It was well-intended, really—I love to cook and had recently gone on a soupy stint—but it didn’t exactly scream romance.
Sometimes, it’s just better to treat yourself. (That way, it’s easier to feign excitement over those gas-station carnations).
We’ve sold out of our We Heart Collection, a limited edition box filled with beauty keepsakes and customer-approved best sellers. But don’t worry. We’ve singled out a few of our prettiest products, from a gorgeous PAUL & JOE compact to an eight-shade contouring set from beauty veteran Manna Kadar, that make perfect treats to gift yourself.
Go ahead—you deserve it.
1. Paul & Joe Beauté Eye Color and Lip Balm Set. These three winter wonderland-themed tins come with three eye shadows and a lip balm each. They’re the perfect self-indulgence.
2. Paul & Joe Beauté Face Color. The pretty pearlescent compact combines three makeup essentials—bronzer, blush, and highlighter—in one easy-to-use palette.
3. Chantecaille Papillons Eye Shade. Housed in an Italian-designed compact, this one-of-a-kind shadow palette was inspired by the brilliant colors of the monarch butterfly.
4. Manna Kadar Cosmetics Gold Digger Contouring Palette. With this easy-to-use set, anyone can unlock the secret to looking red-carpet ready.
