The Beauty Beat: 2/13-2/19

Cupid’s arrow is on the loose this week. Pucker up with limited-edition Chanel, satisfy your chocolate cravings at Equinox and get your wheels in motion with Flywheel Sports.


BEAUTY: Valentine’s Day may very well be the mother of all date nights. That said, your regular gloss just will not do. Chanel knows how to glam it up for February 14. Its Rouge Coco Shine, a lip color packed with shine in a water-light texture, doesn’t officially debut until April, but the brand is launching a sneak preview just in time for your biggest date of the year. Its standout shade, “Boy,” will be pre-released through February 14. Named after Arthur “Boy” Capel, one of Coco Chanel’s admirers, this natural rose shade is a true love story. GET IT: $32. Chanel, 9700 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour Shops; 305.868.0550.

SPA: Mmm chocolate. Marry that phenomenal flavor with a facial and a massage and, well, what more could you ask for? Seriously. The Spa @ Equinox is using the sweet treat as the main ingredient in its February offering, because chocolate doesn’t just taste good, it’s actually good for you. Chocolate firms and perks up skin, fights free radicals and gives an overall comforting feeling. Savor the flavor with a one-hour Dark Chocolate Facial and Massage ($155). It’s a gift that will have your valentine singing your sweet praises. GET IT: The Spa at Equinox Aventura, Coral Gables and South Beach.

GYM: With the opening of Soul Cycle, indoor cycling studios are quickly becoming all the rage in South Florida.
