These Etude House KitKat Palettes Are Great Valentine's Day Gifts

For yummy beauty looks

Forget roses and chocolates, we have found the best Valentine's Day gift that any beauty lover — including us! — would love to receive in lieu of the cliche. Enter Etude House's super adorable KitKat palettes that come in two "flavours" and include six shades per bar. 

The milk chocolate version features versatile neutrals that range from matte browns to champagne shimmers and an eye-popping red brick shade. Meanwhile, the more dainty strawberry white chocolate one highlights bright colours, including a shimmery pink, rich creams and a pretty shade of peach. We do hope that they'll release more versions of these palettes considering that KitKat has plenty of flavour selections. Imagine getting a KitKat matcha, apple or sakura palette. Just thinking about them makes our heart skip a beat!

According to Trendmood, the collection is now available on Etude House's global website but it looks like the products are currently out of stock. As of now, these delicious palettes can only be purchased on their South Korean website. But because it's hard to navigate the site (unless you understand Hangul) and international shipping may also not be available, we're just hoping that these palettes will reach our shores soon.  

While we wait for the Etude House x KitKat collab to be available at a nearby branch, here are some equally adorable food-themed beauty items that may catch your fancy. 

TONYMOLY x Samyang Noodles

The MOSCHINO x TONYMOLY collab may be getting all the spotlight now but we'll never forget this quirky and totally surprising collab between a beauty brand and a noodle company. It's a unique and fun collection that made us want to hoard every piece before it got sold out.

KKW HEARTS Fragrance

It's not only cutesy Korean cosmetic brands that release swoon-worthy food-like packaging. Even Kim Kardashian, who is known for her street style aesthetics, launched her fragrances encased in the liking of pastel sweetheart candies. Speaking of, did you know that she just released three new fragrances just in time for Valentine's? 

Glow Recipe

Remembered as one of the most successful Shark Tank ventures, Glow Recipe went from a small start-up to a household name in the skincare industry. Most of their bestsellers are food-themed and this includes the cult favourite Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask and Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. Even their latest releases, the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser and Sweet Chefs Serum Shots, heavily feature vegetable and fruit ingredients.

MAC Oh Sweetie!

MAC Cosmetics has been releasing various collections these days, so just in case you missed this one, we're happy to catch you up. Basically, it's a scented lip gloss with a lightweight texture that delivers frosted hues and comes in a wide range of "fun-fetti bright" colours. It's like cake icing but for your lips. Yum!

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Bar

The latest reincarnation of the original Too Faced Chocolate Bar, the Chocolate Gold, highlights metallics and rich jewel-toned shades. Obviously, the eyeshadows are also made with the signature cocoa powder plus real gold. The concept of using cocoa in Too Faced products was inspired by one of the founders getting a chocolate facial. We didn't even know that there was such a thing, and apparently, you can do it at home
