Galentines/Valentines/Palentines Essentials

We've got two days to go before Valentines day and although I'll be spending it in full-force Galentines mode, I couldn't resist doing a post surrounding the day. Although I'm single, I have to say I'm a sucker for Valentines day so my flatmate and I are pretty much a married couple soobviously Galentines was on the table and we're heading to watch Fifty Shades Darker on Tuesday night with a stop at Zizzi's beforehand, can you think of a bigger cliché?

Regardless of whether or not you've got a loved one or are spending it with friends, I've got a couple of cute bits that I think are Valentines/Palentines/Galentines essentials.

I can't believe I left it so late to pick up anything from Lush's Valentines collection. I'm usually the first one there, ready to pick up the new bits, but this time, I only picked up two (I really need to start saving money) which include the Cupid Bath Bomb and the stunning Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar . Cupid Bath Bomb is a very citrus and fresh smelling bath bomb which I can imagine will make the water a stunning colour and plus how cute is it?! I've picked up Unicorn Horn before and you just can't ignore this beauty in the shop. I know some people don't like the scent of Lavendar but I think it's perfect for a lovely relaxing bath! 

Makeup wise I think you just have to go for some pink romantic glitter. My Urban Decay Naked 3 has been making a comeback recently into my everyday makeup routine as I've been digging a rose gold eye. What I love about this palette is that you can either use it for a glittery pink rose gold if you're doing a day time activity or use the darker warm brown tones for an evening look! 

The I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts Peachy Pink Kiss is a gorgeous blush topper. It's almost got too little pink pigmentation for it to be a blush but too much to be a highlighter so I pop this on top  of one of my pink-toned blushers and it adds such a pretty glow. It's also bloomin adorable and makes a great flatlay prop!

Of course on my lips, it's no surprise, the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution 'Pillow Talk' is just that perfect pink lip to pair with all the rest of the glowy pink products. It's also described as the 'perfect lipstick shade for Valentines' so I guess it's a must!

Let me know in the comments below what your plans are for Tuesday!

  1. I will definitely be rocking Pillow Talk this year because Valentines is on a work day! I'm probably going to end my day with something bubbly from Lush too, most likely Unicorn Horn :) xx

    1. I know what you mean, I think because it's more Summer/Spring that it's harder to use and get the most wear out of but it's just so pretty and romantic! xx
