Valentine’s Day is a holiday that comes around once every year. For some the holiday is about spending time with the ones you love, for others it’s about the discounted chocolate the day after, but the day also has another really great tradition; companies releasing cute limited edition items! Here’s a quick guide to some of the highlights, from makeup to shoes, that you don’t want to miss out on.
1. The MAC Valentine’s Day collection 2023.
For Valentine’s Day this year Mac are redesigning some of their best classic lipsticks into new limited edition pink cases with hearts. There are four shades: ‘Lady Danger’; ‘Relentless Leslie Red’; ‘Tropic Tonic’; ‘Chile’. They are also releasing some of their Glowplay Lip Balms in the same limited edition cases, along with two brand new limited edition shades. The new shades are called ‘Bouncing Bloom’ and ‘Rose to the Occasion’.
2. Converse Valentine’s Day collection 2023
Converse are another brand who are releasing limited edition pairs of shoes just for Valentine’s Day this year. They have four new pairs, which come with a range of red embroidered hearts and Valentine’s Day-inspired patterns. The favourite for me are the Converse Chuck Taylor all star move platform hearts. The shoes come in both adults and children’s sizes, with original style converse and a platform style. These are ones that footwear fans shouldn’t miss out on.
3. Pat McGrath Valentine’s Day 2023: Love Collection
For eyeshadow lovers, Pat McGrath is releasing three limited edition eyeshadow palettes in his Valentine’s collection this year. There are three palettes as part of the collection: Velvet Liaison; Sublime Seduction; Iconic Infatuation. Velvet Liaison is Pat McGrath’s first all matte palette, while Iconic Infatuation comes with a range of pink shades, perfect for that Valentine’s look.
4. Nike Valentine’s Day 2023 edition
The Nike Valentine’s Day collection features unique editions of the Air Force 1, Air Max 90, Dunk Low, Air More Uptempo, and the Air Trainer 1. Each pair comes in red and pink colour tones. The Air Force 1 seems to be the star of the show with embroidered cherries on the sides and featuring pink and red hearts throughout.
5. LEGO Valentine’s Day 2023
Every year LEGO releases new limited-edition Valentines sets, and they are always a massive hit. Between LEGO flower bouquets and cute heart ornaments, they serve as long lasting decorations for your home. These LEGO sets are a great buy for both yourself or for a partner and the quality time you spend together while making the set is just an added bonus! The best part is the low price for the sets, making this the most affordable limited edition item in this guide.
