Single? So what! Instead of sitting at home alone sulking this Feb. 14, invite your unattached gal pals over and whip up some delicious anti-Valentine’s Day drinks.
All the single ladies
We’ve also picked out several pretty (and totally appropriate) lip glosses to go along with each. Because after all, what’s better than makeup and booze on a holiday like this?
The Bitter Truth
Cocktail created by David Nepove, National President of the U.S. Bartender’s Guild
Pair with Beauty Addicts' SweetLIPS in Twilight
Offset the bitterness of your drink with a high-shine gloss that has a hint of vanilla and just a touch of sweetness to make sipping even more pleasurable. Featuring vitamin E and jojoba butter, your lips will be so soft that if you do wind up with a Valentine’s kiss, he’ll be more than pleased (trust us)!
Pair with Napoleon Perdis’ Luminous Lip Veil in Caramel Kiss
The best part about being single? Having the license to flirt, of course! Whether you’re simply kicking it at home or plan on going out with your girls after cocktails, Napoleon Perdis’ Luminous Lip Veil in Caramel Kiss is the perfect gloss to play up your pout in a naturally stunning way. Plus, it’s scented with lychee, the fruit of romance and passion!

Pair with NARS' Orgasm Lip Gloss
No date? No problem! This pretty peachy pink shimmer gloss pairs perfectly with the refreshing Cucumber Stiletto cocktail and will have you feeling like a total girl. So sit back, relax, unwind and release all that tension this Valentine’s Day. We have to admit, the name of this product alone is enough to make us want to go out and buy it…
Pucker’s Crimson Pout

Pair with Sephora’s Love at First Sight Glossy Gloss Duo
Pucker up ladies, and let your lips do the talking! Now, normally, two is always better than one (except when it comes to your relationship status, duh). That’s why we just couldn’t resist including Sephora’s Love at First Sight Glossy Gloss Duo, consisting of two heartbreaking shades: Think Pink and Confectionary. Choose your favorite or mix both together for a funky, fun Valentine’s Day pout. You’re bound to fall hard.
