KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Today's shopping guide is full of affordable beauty-themed stocking stuffers. Don't get me wrong, I love to get candy and chocolates in my stocking, but I also love other gifts, like a cute new pair of socks and especially little beauty products.

A beauty stocking stuffer doesn't have to cost a lot. Between individual sheets masks and bath bombs  to lip balm and nail polish, you can find so many great options under $10. Several options below are even under $5.

The most universal of stocking stuffers, aside from candy, is lip balm. When given as a gift, go with something more luxurious than a Cherry Chapstick from the grocery store. My favorite lip balms at Bua Organics are all-natural and organic and come in options like Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Oil. For a moisturizing lip balm with the addition of a fun scent, try Einstein Bath Co., for flavors like Sangria, Marshmallow, and Pink Frosting.

A wonderful way to give a luxury beauty…

Summer Beauty Trend: Top Nail Polish Colors for Summer 2013


Beauty products, much like clothing, go through different trends with each season. Nail polish is a big beauty product for Summer, as we display our tootsies in Summer sandals. I've always been a fan of classic red and the dark gothic reds and purples, but if I had to lighten things up for summer, I could go for some of these 2013 nail colors.

Actually I always wish I could wear the pastel colors, but with my dark olive complexion, I'm stuck with the darker shades. Though I could totally go for the "Girls Are Out" shade by Essie for summer 2013 (pictured right), or Dior's Summer '13 Mermaids collection and their "Bird of Paradise" nail duo in shimmering blue.  You can find more pastels in cool shades in the Essie 2013 Resort collection.

Another top nail trend this summer has popped up recently is white. I was slow to like this trend until I heard it referred to as the modern French manicure. To make it wearable, go for a white nail polish with either a beige tint or a pearly finish, like the Essie Pearly White.
