Hello my lovelies! Thanks for landing on my blog!
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and besides thinking about the perfect present for your loved one also remember that the biggest and most precious present of all is YOU so on 14th of February, take some time for yourself and make sure you’re the best smelling and most kissable gift ever!
I will give you the great news straight away because you will not need tons of cosmetic products to achieve that result, in fact you will only need 3. Yes, 3. You read correct.
I have been using these products for a while now, that’s why I’m reccommending you to use them on Valentine’s Day night, a night in which someone could start a new story, someone could seal the deal and others just celebrate their love like every other day and whatever the case may be for you, all those are occasions in which everything needs to be perfect, exactly like the products I am going to talk to you about.
The first thing we want to do is to prep our lips to be soft, smooth and good looking so the first product will of course be
1. LIP SCRUB
There are so many options out there but when I first approached to this kind of product I was very curious to try the Jeffree Star Velour Lip Scrubs because once I saw Jeffree using one of them in a video and his lips really looked beautiful and curated after he applied it so I decided to get myself the same one and it’s the Strawberry Gum Velour Lip Scrub which belongs to his permanent line so you should be able to get it everytime! Since then, Jeffree has put out so many option but I’ve been using this one no stop everytime I do my make up because first of all, it’s edible! And it tastes great. This definitely made me even more curious to try it and even if you might eat some of your lips’ dead skin while trying it, it’s worth it! ahah
Anyway… if you’re in the EU you can get all of the Jeffree Star products on Beautybay.com and I am very happy about this because unfortunately all of the European customers usually don’t get to try all of the products released in the US, so I really appreciated when Jeffree decided to sell his products through Beautybay for his European customers.
Besides tasting great, this lip scrub really does its job because it exfoliates the lips in a gentle but efficient way, leaving them soft and ready to apply your lipstick of choice. What I do is, I scoop some out of the little jar, apply and massage it all over my lips and lick the residue! This has become a ritual for me every time I do my make up and since I can assure you it’s going to work if you have dry lips or if you just want to make them look nicer, I really reccommend you getting this to use it on Valentine’s Day because your lips will be as soft as a rose petal and they’re going to taste like strawberry! That’s for sure… and if a make up product is approved by my boyfriend, I know it’s doing nothing but great! 😉
If you’re a EU customer, you can go right here to buy it.
2. LIP BALM
Here comes some controversy because even if we want to look all glammed up and do full lips, I have to warn you: lots of kisses may be given to you that day and usually the guys don’t like to have lipstick all over their mouth so you might want to use a different option that day, to still give you a pop of colour but without any problem later on… I know, it can be a nice feeling and a funny experience to be kissed and have all your lipstick smudged, but try to go for a subtler option that day and try a lip balm instead of a lipstick or lip tint so you don’t have much issues afterwards trying to fix it, especially if you’re out eating at a fancy restaurant. The one I’m reccommending to you is the Benefit Benebalm and this one only comes in one shade which is a classic red and lucky for me, it’s my favourite shade but I think that red is a very classic, timeless and romantic shade which looks the sexiest on any lips, so it’s perfect to get a pop of colour without being drastic and besides giving your lip a very healthy look, it’s a very hydrating one so if you want to keep your lips perfect, kissable and good looking this is definitely the option you have to go for. Another great thing which I should have probably mentioned before – being someone who always pays attention to this – is that THIS LIP BALM SMELLS GREAT. It has such an elegant and floral smell that it’s a pleasure to just apply it and smell it! You can literally feel the smell of your lips even after you apply it so it’s a great find if you love that.
The combo between the strawberry gum scrub which will leave your lips soft and smooth and this lip balm which gives your lips a great colour and smell it’s the perfect pair to give your lips that 100% kissable and boyfriend approved lips! That’s guaranteed 😉

Last but absolutely not least you will have to choose what perfume you want to wear on that special night and – of course – I already thought about something to reccommend you and again, I have tried and worn this fragrance many times and I can guarantee you it’s one of the most beautiful and feminine fragrances out there, plus it lasts a very long time on your skin so you don’t have to worry about reapplying it later on. The perfume I am talking about is the Rose Goldea Eau de Parfum by Bulgari. Bulgari is one of the most luxurious brand out there and I had never tried anything before and as you can imagine, the name of the perfume itself is something I couldn’t resist of. When I bought this, I just wanted to buy a perfume but I hadn’t any idea or inspiration on what to get so as I usually do when I shop for fragrances, I look for a sensation and when I saw “Rose Goldea” I was absolutely curious to try it out because I had and still have such an obsession with this colour that I had to see what Bulgari came out with to portrait such an iconic, loved and trendy colour. When I first smelled it, I already knew it was something that was going to be part of my collection very soon but when I’m at Sephora or any store I usually spend so much time and smell so much fragrances that I end up being confused on what to get so LIFE TIP: Take some time to smell the fragrances and think about the ones you can’t forget, then go again and try it on your skin and see how it works.
This is what I did with this fragrance and what I actually do with every fragrance and I can tell you, I’ve never been disappointed about my purchases. The reason why I’m reccomending this fragrance to you to use it on Valentine’s Day is because every time I’ve worn it I had got so much compliments both from men and women but the most appreciated compliment of all was my boyfriend’s one… He usually doensn’t like fragrances (yes… but I still love him! :P) but when I wear this one he always compliments me so I guess I found the perfect one for me!
Besides this, if you want my opinion, (the opinion of a fragrances nerdie), this one is perfect if you like floral, intense, chypre, feminine, sweet, sensual and sophisticated fragrances. This truly is one of a kind and I love the fact that Bulgari represented this iconic colour with such a particular combination of ingredients to make this perfume a one to remember. I would categorize this as a mature fragrance and if you’re not into that, you will definitely respect this creation as a unique one because it’s not your classic floral fragrance; it’s definitely one of a kind in which everything is perfectly combined. As I already mentioned, this one will last so long on your skin and even if you won’t need it, the 25 ml bottle is so small you can also carry it on your bag to give yourself some extra sprays as you go to the restroom for some retouches 😉
