KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

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.
