When you think of a Valentine’s Day themed beauty set, what usually comes to mind are kitschy coordinating eye shadow palettes and matching lip glosses or nail lacquers, all wrapped in cutesie heart-emblazoned zip cases. And then when you actually go browsing through the yearly festive selection of V-Day inspired beauty goodies, you usually find that your predictions weren’t so far off. Sure, some themed sets are totally wearable later, when the goal is to not look like a human box of conversation hearts… but you still rarely find a Valentine’s Day set full of strictly practical beauty loot. Enter Yves Saint Laurent’s All For Eyes set — one of the first (if not the only) V-Day beauty gift set filled with truly always-useful beauty buys. Touche Eclat luminizer, mascara, and soothing makeup remover — in fact, the only thing about it that’s actually festive at all about the set is the sleek and understated themed carrying clutch. And considering all the other cheesy love-dovey beauty sets out there, I consider that a good thing!
