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…

Beauty Trends Fall 2013: The New Michael Kors Beauty Line




I am completely obsessing over the new beauty and fragrance line by Michael Kors. For his debut line of beauty products he's keeping it simple with three distinct collections - Sporty, Sexy, and Glam. I think it's quite genius. Style and beauty is a way for a woman to define herself, or perhaps reinvent herself. What better way than with a collection named sexy or glam?

The Michael Kors Sexy collection (pictured below) includes a bold and bright shade or fuchsia called Bombshell - a perfectly dramatic variation of pink for fall. The other lip and nail color in the set is a fall essential - Siren (classic red). The body products for the Sexy collection include an amber-scented perfume and a liquid shimmer body oil.



The Sporty Collection offers classic neutrals in shades of pale pink, bronzing powder, self tanner, and a citrus-scented perfume.



The Glam set is by far my favorite. The makeup in the collection contains two shades that are perfect for fall. The nail lacquer in Envy is a dark violet shade. The lip gloss, lipstick, and other nail polish in the glam set come in a rich reddish-plum shade. I love, love, love the lip lacquer in Dame (pictured right). The deep plum shade is perfect for fall. Similar wine shades were a hot fall beauty trend on the runways this year. It's the best shade for an all-over dramatic makeup look. A red lip looks great with understated eyes, but a dark wine or plum shade can work well with subtle eyes yet also looks beautiful with dark smoky eyes or the popular cat-eye trend for fall.


The price points for the Michael Kors collection are quite reasonable for a designer line, with the lipsticks just under $25 and the perfumes between $50 to just under $100. It's the perfect price for the fashionista and still affordable for most guys to splurge on to get their wives or girlfriends the perfect beauty gift.
