Forget candy hearts, flowers and stuffed toys for Valentine’s Day. How about some super adorable chocolate-themed makeup or a romantic fragrance bouquet instead? If you prefer the latter, keep on reading as we list down some of our favourite covetable Valentine’s Day 2021 limited-edition items. No matter your relationship status — single, in the dating scene or happily coupled — these goodies are yours for the taking.
ETUDE x Hershey’s Kisses
Cute, sweet and available — no we’re not talking about our ideal guy but just describing Etude’s latest collaboration with Hershey’s. We had the chocolate bar-inspired palettes last year, this time, we’re getting the Kisses. Inspired by Hershey’s iconic bite-sized chocolate treat, the Etude Play Colour Eyes Mini Kisses palettes (Milk Chocolate, Almond Chocolate, Special Dark) feature a mix of matte and shimmery muted browns.
There are also three new Etude Choco Mousse Tints in the collection. The name might make you think they're all brown tints but it’s actually a selection of wearable rosy shades. Overall, this Etude x Hershey’s Kisses collection is a good pick for anyone who’s looking for easy-to-apply, you-can’t-go-wrong makeup.
Tom Ford Beauty Rose Prick Lip Color 26 To Die For
Tom Ford lipsticks are something of a collector’s item for beauty enthusiasts. But even if you’re not one, you may still want to add this Valentine’s Day 2021 limited-edition item to your makeup collection. Unlike the regular Tom Ford Lip Color, this one comes in a special pretty pink casing to match the limited-edition alluring red-pink shade of 26 To Die For. It has a matte finish and along-lasting yet comfortable formula that you can wear all day. We imagine it’s an excellent match for any sophisticated outfit for a date night.
Rouge Dior Valentine's Day Limited Edition Couture Colour
Another Valentine’s Day 2021 limited edition lipstick collection that caught our eye is the Rouge Dior Couture Colour. It’s not the packaging that has a little extra but the lipstick itself, which is engraved with little “bursts” of hearts. You have two satin-finish shades to choose from: Red Smile (vibrant red with orange-y undertones) or 999 shade (classic red). Both have a floral twist and are infused with red peony extracts for hydration. It’s a nice Valentine’s Day-themed lippie, that’s for sure, but we would have loved it if there were more limited-edition shades available.

Limited-Edition Flower By Kenzo Poppy Bouquet Couture
A bouquet like no other, the limited-edition Flower By Kenzo Poppy Bouquet Couture fragrance will definitely appeal to your romantic side. It comes with a special couture-inspired Kenzo ribbon that pays homage to the delicate bands tied around silk kimonos. Spritz some of the perfume on it and then wear it around your hair or your wrist or as a choker and enjoy the long-lasting notes of Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine, and Gardenia in a fashionable way. Ahh, just thinking about it makes us feel dreamy.
PANDORA Valentine's Day 2021 Collection - Romeo & Juliet
While we don’t wish for our own love stories to be as tragic as Romeo & Juliet’s, there’s still something to be admired about their love, passion and dedication for each other. And these values are what Pandora’s Valentine’s Day 2021 collection is inspired by. The charms focus on the rose, a symbol of love, strength and beauty, and much effort was dedicated to making the charms look as lifelike as possible. They're eye-catching and are a nice romantic addition to outfits with bare necklines. Plus, they can also serve as a reminder to put love and kindness first in our lives.

New Balance 57/40 Valentine’s Day Edition
The New Balance 57/40 is back with a Valentine’s Day update. In line with the occasion, it now comes in a brand new vibrant pink suede colourway. The look is very 1980s loud meets 1990s athleisure, a style that happens to be in vogue lately. So if you’re not one for dressing up in a fancy dress for a date and prefer to keep it casual for Valentine’s Day, these kicks may be what you’re looking for.
Snag this at: New Balance Lighthouse and Experience stores by 6 February in Singapore. For Malaysia and the Philippines, no official launch announcement yet.
