You don't have to be in a couple in order to benefit from beauty brands' specially themed collections this Valentine's Day: these products are perfect to give to a girlfriend - or to yourself.

Beauty retailer Sephora has compiled a selection of products for all the single ladies: instead of flowers, buy the Korres Rose Collection (lip and body butter, shower gel) or SEPHORA by OPI Modern Flowers Collection Nail Colours.

Benefit's Sugarbomb blush and Philosophy's bubblegum-flavored lip glosses make for great candy substitutes, and in case you need some self-affirmation, try Guerlain's lipsticks engraved with "I heart you" or "Kiss me."

Finally, in what Sephora calls its "optimistic kits," it is listing two sets to "go get them:" the Too Faced Walk of Shame Kit includes everything from makeup refreshers to toothbrush and mints, and its Give Me Some Lip Valentine's Day gift set features a wide range of kissable lip products.

Fashion designer Stella McCartney is also launching a special beauty product coinciding with the big day, which doubles perfectly as a gift for your girlfriends: a fine necklace carrying a solid version of her fragrance Stella launches in Sephora stores and on sephora.com next weekend (February 13).
