Valentine's Day: 14 Days of Self-Love

The jane iredale team are big fans of women supporting women year ‘round, but what better time to show a little love than in the lead up to Valentine’s Day? Single, taken or somewhere in between, it’s so important to never neglect yourself and make sure you love yourself as much as everyone else does - because all women are beautiful and worthy of a whole lotta love!

We’ve been in the beauty business for quite some time, and if there’s one sentiment that has never wavered it’s how much a great lip colour can totally boost a woman’s self-confidence. It’s crazy how a slick of lipstick can amp up your mood, so to get you feeling the self-love this Valentine’s Day (a feeling that we hope will last you all year!) we’ve put together this little guide to our favourite jane iredale lippies! While confidence and beauty come from within, there’s no harm in enlisting the help of a few beautiful products - especially if those products are caring for your lips as well as helping you look and feel great!

LipDrink Lip Balm
We like to think of Valentine’s Day as a time to treat ourselves, which is easy done as all of our lip colours double up as really effective lip treatments. To treat your lips to some serious hydration, opt for our LipDrink Lip Balm. As their name suggests, these balms are like a tall glass of water for your lips, plumping them up to ensure they look and feel well moisturised. These balms come in four shades, one of which is a clear balm to serve as the perfect base, or lip primer if you will, for any of our other lip products - which means you can double up on the self-love!

Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain
If you prefer your lip products to pack a bit more of a colourful punch, try our Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain. This formula is equally as hydrating as LipDrink but leaves a slightly more intense wash of colour that can also be applied to the cheeks for a beautiful sheer flush of colour. Our Just Kissed range also includes a collection of Lip Plumpers to boost the volume of your pout and boost that self confidence in the interim! The Just Kissed Lip Plumpers contain cool mint, ginger and special peptides to give your lips a naturally full appearance, a delicious scent and a hit of moisture.

PureGloss Lip Gloss
There are few things sexier than a full, glossy pout, making our PureGloss Lip Glosses a favourite year ‘round. Delivering a wash of colour and serious shine, these glosses come in almost 20 hues which means you’re guaranteed to find a shade that makes you look and feel like the very best version of yourself - which is exactly what self-love is all about!

Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss
Love a hit of gloss but want more punch from your lip colour? Our Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss duos are for you. Formulated to serve a dual purpose, start by applying the stain to give your lips a long lasting colour fix, then apply the complementary gloss to give your lips a seriously sexy, multi-dimensional finish.

PlayOn Lip Crayon
If ease of application is at the top of your dream lippie wishlist, look no further than our PlayOn Lip Crayons. These jumbo lip crayons are designed to be scribbled on for a pop of colour and a heavy moisture boost, and they’re available in every hue from the most natural nude to the deepest jewel-toned purple. A lipstick traditionalist? Try one of our 24 shades of PureMoist Lipstick. Self-love is all about trying something that makes you feel uniquely you, so the range of shades and finishes of our PureMoist Lipsticks give you the freedom of expression that beauty should be all about!

PureMoist Lipstick
Valentine’s Day is traditionally about love, but we think self-love is the most important kind of love there is. Love yourself as much as you can and do everything in your power to make yourself feel amazing (a new lippie is a great place to start!) then let that self-love wash over your nearest and dearest!
