KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Grab a cup of coffee and get ready for some shopping fun! This weekend I’m all about treating myself to an at-home mani for selfcare Sunday and getting that glow with a new skincare routine.

I’m so happy to be using Oh It’s Natural again! Their products are all-natural with simple ingredients, so they're perfect for sensitive skin or for people like me who have a lot of allergies. This 3-Step Complete Hemp Skincare Regimen includes a cleanser, face oil, and sugar scrub. The Hemp All Over face oil can be used as an oil cleanser and makeup remover as well as a moisturizer.

Made with hemp seed oil, sunflower oil, and Vitamin E oil; it’s such a hydrating and nourishing oil. More so than most facial oils I’ve tried, this one really helps to even my skin tone and gives my skin a healthy glow. Hemp seed oil ranks zero on the comedogenic scale, so it’s perfect for all skin types. If you’ve been wanting to try a face oil but have been hesitant, I high…

NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss Review


I'm a sucker for lip gloss; you could find one in every purse I own. But sometimes poor quality in the end can make a less expensive product not worth the money at all. That is definitely the case with the NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss.

Don't get me wrong, NYC New York Color is a budget makeup brand that I have liked for a very long time, hence I was willing to give their new plumping lips gloss a try. The slightly shimmery gloss is an average between $3.00 and $4.00 a piece and comes in several pretty shades of pink.


PROs
  • pretty colors
  • nice shimmer
  • affordable 
CONs
  • not a good plumping lip gloss
  • doesn't stay on very long (despite that being a promise in the product description)

BOTTOM LINE

It's a nice cheap lips gloss, so if you really love the colors, go ahead and pick up one or two. It's a nice lip gloss to keep in your summer purse for a quick touch up. Though as you can see in the before and after pics, this lip gloss simply does not plump one little bit. I'm a firm believer that a product above anything should live up to its name; if a plumping gloss has the words "Big Bold" in the name, it had better plump at least a little bit.

If this were someone's first encounter with the NYC New York Color makeup brand, I'd bet they wouldn't become a returning customer. Though I have to say this is one super-affordable makeup brand that I have used and been happy with in the past. I love their Smooth Skin facial powder and especially both their quick-dry and long-wearing nail polishes.

Have you used any plumping lip products that worked really well? Please let me know in the comments below.
