With Valentine's Day just around the corner, you'll want to prepare your pout with some provocative products to pucker up with! These love-inspired lip treats are perfect for the big day. This marks the first part of my four-post series on Valentine's Day makeup, so come back tomorrow for more lovey ideas.

Benefit Cupid's Bow Lovely Lip Shaping Set ($28) contains all the goodies you need to create a dead-sexy mouth. Your cupid's bow is the little area on your upper lip that dips down. You can play it up for a widening effect or add a highlighter and shine for fullness. Inside you'll find a dual-ended lip liner and highlighter, a dual-sided blending and shaping tool.

For two more very alluring lip products,


Philosophy Candy Hearts ($25) is a trio of shiny, flavored lip glosses that have cute sweet-nothings written on the tubes. Melon Daiquiri says "Be Mine"; Vanilla Birthday Cake says, "Ask Me"; and Raspberry Sorbet says, "Love You."

Lancôme Absolut Rouge Lipstick in Valentine ($26) is a bold reddish-pinkish, creamy, and shiny lipstick that contains a touch of lip plumper, too. Not only will this notice-me shade make a "kiss me, you fool!" statement, it will also ensure that your mouth is hydrated and soft for the smoothest possible smooch!
