Code8 All Out Red Duo: Matte Velour Lipstick in Opera & 5Secs in Carmen
If your loved one is fond of a red lip, this duo will be an excellent addition to her makeup bag. Combining the best-selling Matte Velour Lipstick in Opera (a universal red with blue undertones) and the multi-tasking 5secs Express Lip & Cheek Colour in Carmen (a reddish-pink that’s loved by the press), this set is universally flattering and offers both matte and creamy finishes. Perfect for taking her look from day to night, pair it with a thoughtful card and some beautiful gift wrap and you can’t go wrong.
Code8 Limited Edition Colour Brilliance Lipstick in Bisous
Is she more of a pink lover? Opt for the Limited Edition Colour Brilliance Lipstick in Bisous instead. It’s a deep rose shade with a warm undertone that melts onto the lips, leaving them covered in a shiny, radiant colour. Thanks to its blend of nourishing waxes, it’s perfect for using on the lips or the cheeks. It’s exclusively available online and free when you spend over £125, but this offer is only valid whilst stocks last, so be quick. Gift it to her along with her favourite pink champagne and get ready to pucker up.
Alex Monroe Bespoke Floral Alphabet Necklace
Take your gifting to the next level by opting for something personal. British jewellery designer Alex Monroe has created a collection of handmade 26 delicate gold-plated and silver-plated necklaces. Each individual letter in the alphabet is represented, surrounded by sculpted leaves and intricate petals. Pick the first letter of her name so she has personalised jewellery to wear every day, or give her yours, so she can keep you close to her heart at all times.
Code8 Eye-Enhancing Duo: Iconoclast Palette in Lustrous Corduroy & Mascara
Want to give your someone special a Valentines gift that’s a little out of the ordinary? If your partner is into fitness, animals, (or both!) then book her in for a puppy yoga class. She’ll get to practice her downward dog while being surrounded by them, as they come up to play and cuddle with her. The pups are there to learn to socialise with people before they are rehomed, so she’ll be doing good as well as stretching.
Code8 Love at First Blush Duo: Blush in Pink Beach & AM/PM in Spin City
Made for those who love a natural flush, the Love at First Blush Duo combines a universally flattering Blush Palette in Pink Beach (a trio of pinks) with the AM/PM Tinted Lip Balm in Spin City (a pink beige). Created using revolutionary Knead Technology, each blush shade has a super smooth texture that delivers ultra-blendable payoff without fading, while our lip balm is enriched with cocoa butter for a soft, silk pout. This set is a great gift choice if your girlfriend likes her make-up to look fresh and flattering.
Escentric Molecules: Molecule 1 Eau De Toilette
Perfume might seem like an obvious choice for Valentine’s Day but this one by Escentric Molecules is different from classic scents. Known as a ‘fragrance for people who don’t like fragrance’, it has only one ingredient - Iso E Super. It reacts to the PH balance of the skin, so it smells slightly different on every person it’s sprayed on. Gift it to your love and she’ll have a unique perfume that no-one else has.
Bespoke Lipstick Creation at the Code8 Colour ID Lab
For the ultimate beauty treat, bring her to the Code8 Colour ID Lab at our Burlington Arcade store. She’ll work with one of our Colour Maestros to create a bespoke, custom-made lipstick that’s unique to her. While waiting for her shade to be mixed, she’ll enjoy a personalised makeover by one of our artists as well as some champagne to share with you. She’ll leave looking and feeling her best, with a brand new lip shade to boot. The perfect Valentine’s Day experience for any make-up lover.
