KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend and welcome to another Friday Finds here at KCL! I don't know about you guys, but we have actually been able to use our heater this week. I'm so excited that sweater weather is finally here! It's time to cozy up with some hot cocoa and watch my favorite scary movies. My husband and I love Halloween, and we love to relax at home with a good movie or show. Several new scary shows are streaming as of today, so we will definitely be staying in and watching Netflix. Whether you're staying in or going out, enjoy your weekend, and enjoy these incredible seasonal picks. Happy shopping!


At AfterHours Decals & More they carry gifts and home goods like candles and personalized wedding gifts, but with Halloween coming up, I really wanted to share their seasonal Autumn-themed decor with you. Among my favorites are their Halloween door decals (pictured above) and their set of witch pun Halloween stemless wine glasses.


I prefer the ready-made set, but if you're…

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.
