Glowing + gorgeous: Five drugstore makeup products perfect for Valentine’s Day

One of my favourite holidays is on the horizon.

There is something about Valentine’s Day that is just so special.  Even if you don’t have a partner that you call a Valentine, there are so many others you can celebrate with (dog, cat, besties, etc.), and it’s such a cute holiday that really, what’s not to love about it (no pun intended!).

Anyways, I recently got in some goodies from a PR company which I thought would make such great gifts for those special girls in your life.  I feel like all of these are must-need products and whether you’re spending the holiday going out or staying in, all of these will definitely help set the mood for the big day.

Plump Lips by Modele

Plump Lips by Modele

Valentine’s Day is known as the holiday of love, so a lip product is always a good idea to pick up or gift!

The Plump Lips by Modele (C$29.99) is a collagen lip treatment that is clinically shown to visibly restore lip volume by up to 40 per cent.  Apply it three times daily for the first 30 days or until desired lip plumpness is achieved.  It also helps to reduce wrinkles and the appearance of fine lines by up to 30 per cent and improves hydration up to 60 per cent.

Now this is definitely a big claim for a beauty product and do I think it will rival the effect of lip fillers?  No.  But I do think that it’s a cool lip balm to have on hand and I will say that I feel like my lips look bigger when I apply it.  It’s a comfortable wear and you can either wear it on its own or under your lipstick.

Smooth by So…?

Speaking of lips, I got in the cutest perfume bottle recently, which is in the shape of lips!

Available in three different scents, Smooth by So…? (C$14.99) is a series of eau de parfums that just scream Valetine’s Day.  Each come in a gorgeous metallic lips bottle, either in purple (Vixen), red (Cupid), or nude (Nude)!

I got Cupid, which contains top notes of earth blackcurrant and pear with floral fresh notes of rose, violet and peony.  It is also infused with sweet vanilla, benzoin, tonka beans, and musk.  This has a sweet vanilla candy scent to it and if you like more sweeter perfumes then you will love this one!

Smooth by So...? and I Love body wash

I Love body wash

Speaking of smelling good, I Love is a great brand to try out for body washes (C$9.99) and body mists.  This UK brand offers up seasonal scents which are paraben free and vegan.

I got the scent English Rose which smells just like a rose garden.  It also has a fruity fresh scent of pear and red berries, as well as jasmine and amber, leaving you smelling amazing for your valentine!


Okay everyone needs some hair ties and Invisibobble makes the best ones.

You’ve probably seen these before but Invisibobble hair ties look like a phone cord and they are designed so they hold hair without any breakage or headaches. I basically only use these now in my hair and they do a great job of holding it in place, especially during workouts. They also are great to reduce the kink you often get in your hair from more traditional hair ties.

Invisibobble comes in a bunch of different sizes, colours, and patterns. They are a little pricey at $10 for three ties (for the original ones), but I’ve had mine for years, so they are worth the price (plus they make such great gifts!).

7th Heaven mask and Invisibobble

7th Heaven Face Masques

Finally, for the ultimate Valentine’s Day glow or a night in with your galentine’s, grab one of the 7th Heaven Face Masques, which is made from pure and natural ingredients.

These masks contain natural plant ingredients and are paraben-free and PETA approved.  I got the Chocolate Mud mask, which is a revitalizing and deep-cleansing hard-drying mask.  Apply it on the skin, relax for about half an hour and then rinse off to reveal glowing skin!

The best part about all these products is that they are available in drugstores so you aren’t breaking the bank on picking them up.  I think all of them make great gift ideas for Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, whatever day you are celebrating this month!
