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.

KCL Friday Finds


Hello and welcome to Friday Finds! I hope you all had a very lovely week. Here are some fabulous shops to kick off your weekend. These are each not just small businesses but women-owned businesses, and they each have such high-quality products that you'll have a very hard time deciding what to buy from any one of them. From mod earrings to one-of-a-kind clutches to bold makeup for the chicest of boss babes, trust me, today's Friday Finds is filled with some brands you'll be very glad to know! Pictured: Helena Earring by Tidy Clutterings



The first shop on Friday Finds is quite a treat! Tidy Clutterings Design makes handcrafted polymer clay jewelry dishes and statement earrings that are so very chic. Owner and designer Elyse offers a refreshingly modern take on the tassel-earring trend. I love how she pairs the typically boho-chic tassel earring with sleek brass and bold modern shapes, as you can see in the Artemis Earring pictured above.

My other favorite at Tidy Clutterings is the Helena Earring, also pictured above, though you'll find a lot more than tassel earrings in the new Santorini Summer 2018 Collection. I don't know about you guys, but I am totally in love with these half-circle marble print earrings. Talk about instagram-worthy. Leave me a comment below to let me know which pair is your favorite!


Another gorgeous fashion fix this Friday Finds is courtesy of  Uniquely MC, where you can get handmade one-of-a-kind handbags, clutches, cross body bags and backpacks. I love the practicality of a roomy cross body bag, like this canvas messenger bag, and there are several large shoulder bags available as well.

Though the fold-over zip clutches at Uniquely MC come in the prettiest prints! This botanical print clutch with mustard yellow is so perfect for Summer. And how pretty is this colorful floral and polka-dot print clutch! All of their clutches are made with quality home d├ęcor fabrics and are interlined with pellon for added structure and durability. These beautiful and unique clutches would make for the perfect gift.



Now I couldn't leave you guys without some gorgeous beauty products, could I? This week's featured makeup comes from Taupe Coat, a vegan, 10-free & cruelty free nail polish brand that carries bold colors for the modern boss babe. Pictured above, "My Day Job", part of the Taupe Coat 9 -5 Collection is a chic neutral that works perfectly with any skin tone. Also part of the 9-5 Collection is "K St." a bold red to give you confidence during your next presentation or meeting...or perhaps your next YouTube video.

I love that Taupe Coat works with charities as well. They're currently in collaboration with #HappyPeriod, which provides menstrual products to anyone with a period that has low-income, is homeless, or living in poverty. They believe that no one should go without menstrual care, and work towards in ending the stigma and breaking the taboo surrounding menstruation. A portion of every Taupe Coat purchase you make between June 21 and September 22 will be donated to #Happy Period. Taupe Coat nail polish will also be on next month's unboxing and on the August KCL Beauty Edit, and of course on some #ManiMonday Instagram posts!

I hope you've enjoyed the glimpse of these beautiful and chic brands. You can use the lonks below to browse and shop. Enjoy!
