With Valentine's Day right around the corner and inspired by the classic "Lady In Red" song by Simply Red, I pulled together some of my favorite red gift ideas.
Nothing is sexier than red lips. Estee Lauder has released a new Love Your Lips Collection. The limited-edition collection includes 12 lip-loving Estee Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick ($19.50) shades and 4 new Kissable Lip Glosses (18.00). What I love about the Love Your Lips Collection is the design. Each lipstick features a special L♥VE logo. The glosses feature the same L♥VE logo on the outside container. Try the lipstick in the gorgeous "Cherry Kiss" shade. Available now at Estee Lauder counters nationwide and at www.esteelauder.com.
The butter LONDON REDS Collection is a fabulous collection of shades of red nail polish. I've recently just tried the line and really like it. It's "3-free", meaning no Formaldehyde, no toluene, and no DBP (Phthales). I'm sporting Come to Bed Red, a classic red nail polish. You can purchase butter LONDON nail polish online at Beauty.com or at www.butterlondon.com.
LUSH Love Soap is a red, glittery heart-shaped soap that will
put a smile on everyone’s face for more reasons than you think! It's jam-packed with aphrodisiacs
and skin smoothing ingredients. At only $3.95, this is an affordable little surprise that's as much fun to give as to get. Available at LUSHCosmetics.com.
Love Rocks™ Eau de Parfum is a new fragrance at Victoria's Secret. Sexy with a rock-n-roll edge, I love the red and black bottle. Considered a fruity floral, this fragrance has top notes of bergamot, peony, raspberry sorbet; mid notes of sandalwood flower, jasmine, peach nectar, plum, stephanotis and base notes of golden amber, violet, cashmere musk, vanilla. Love Rocks Eau de Parfum retails at $39 for a 1.7 oz. bottle. Available in stores or at www.victoriassecret.com.
Cozy up to the
warm glow of the new Godiva Strawberry
Rose candle, inspired by
Godiva’s freshly dipped chocolate strawberries; the essence of a
perfectly ripened, sweet strawberry is enveloped in a base of creamy milk
chocolate, accented with delicate rose petals and soft green accords. $23 at CandlesOffMain.com.
Finally, if money is no object, the Hermes Birkin is truly a luxury bag sought after by fashionistas and collectors alike. I love this Hermes 32cm Rouge Fjord Haute a Courroies Birkin bag. At $7450, it's an investment handbag that will last for years. And it would make this a Valentine's Day to remember, right? I'm totally lusting after this bag. If you are too, find it at Yoogi's Closet, a store that specializes in pre-owned luxury items. And if you get it, I want all the details!
