Well, well, well, another Valentine’s Day is nigh. We hope it’s a positive day for you no matter what your plans are. You might be celebrating a new love, treating a long-time sweetheart, celebrating fresh single freedom, or even getting out some pent-up post break-up rage with your gals.
No matter the plan, treat yourself to a good old pamper and some stunning colors to sweeten your day like a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Here are the best lipstick colors for Valentine’s Day!
Sparkly pink gloss
A sparkly, candy-pink gloss spells pure joy, in my world! Ce-lip-bration is the perfect example of this, plumping the lips with spangly gloss and a flattering pink shade to elevate any Val or Gal day.
Wear with: dewy skin and a simple black wing.
Sexy deep nude brown
If you have a sexy, candlelit date with a straight-up babe and you’re feeling like turning on the sexbomb charm, go with a deep nude brown like Teddy Bear. This shade brings 90s supermodel and a sophisticated take on Valentine’s glam.
Wear with: brushed, fluffy brows, softly sculpted skin, and smudged chocolate-brown liner.
Spicy hot red
Let’s not pretend that red lips aren’t a romantic staple. You really can’t go wrong with a rich matte red when wanting to impress, or simply feel elegant and chic all for yourself. Wild Cherry is the perfect red for almost all skin tones, and will stay put no matter how carried away you get with your makeout session.
Wear with: nothing but clean, fresh skin and a lick of mascara.
Pale peachy nude pink
A pale, peachy nude is fun, fresh, and has a retro 60s feel to it, like the beautiful Let’s Kiss matte lippie. This is a stunning shade for Valentine’s Day celebrations in warmer, sunnier climates (beach holiday?) with a cocktail sandy skin.
Wear with: bronzed skin, shimmery gold shadow.
Kiss-friendly tinted balm
If you’re having a more casual celebration or you simply like a more subtle lip, a tinted balm is the ideal pick. This is especially fitting if you’re planning on sneaking in some kisses. The Shnooks Total BALMshell Tinted Lip Balm is a favorite must-have, especially during those cold months.
Wear with: absolutely anything!
