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.

BEST NAIL POLISH

I tried several different nail po…

DIY Mermaid Nails


I've been promising you guys a new makeup tutorial, and here it is - a beautiful DIY mermaid mani! It's so perfect for Summer, and I promise you, it's quite easy to do. I was so inspired by the samples I recently received from Nail Social Nail Brand. I have to say, when I first saw the colors, I knew they were a little bit out of my typical comfort zone. Honestly, I haven't worn sparkly blue nail polish since college, which was quite a while ago for me. For years I've stuck with pinks, reds, and purples; with the most adventurous of my manis being hot pink (and only when hot pink was very on-trend). None the less, I was ready to try this "24K Mermaid" polish. Objectively speaking, as blue sparkly nail polishes go, it was pretty after all.

It was beautiful on, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that under different lighting it went from a true blue to a sparkly greenish blue that looked even more...mermaid-ish if you ask me. When it came time to take it off so I could test the other colors, one of which was gold glitter, I thought I'd experiment a little. Keep in mind that while I do manis regularly, I have never ventured into nail art; so if I can do this on the first try, anyone can master these mermaid nails!
