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…

Meraki Nail Polish Swatches


It's been a pleasure to have Meraki Nature's Cosmetics on KCL several times now. I featured their bath and body products and nail polish in a Friday Finds, as well as a recent KCL Beauty Edit. I really wanted to feature their nail colors in a separate blog post, because they sent my several beautiful shades. From a peachy pastel to the most beautiful nude nail color called "Parisian Cafe", these colors were so pretty and wearable. The formula is long-lasting, 7-free (free of 7 harmful chemicals found in other nail polishes), and is cruelty-free.

It's hard to pick a favorite out of the four shades I tried. I really loved the nude color pictured below. I'm not typically into neutral or very light nail colors, because of my tan skin, but this Parisian Cafe nude nail polish has the perfect cafe au lait shade to it. And let's face it, I'm a sucker for two things when it comes to makeup - pretty packaging and cute names. It's hard to not love a nail color called "Parisian Cafe!"




Another light shade that I was pleasantly surprised by was the "First Date" pastel pink nail polish pictured below. Again, these light shades don't always look good with my tan skin, but something about this particular one looked so pretty. Between Parisian Cafe and First Date, I have two new favorite neutrals when it comes to nail polish.



For Summer, the Sundaze nail polish was absolutely perfect! It's such a gorgeous peachy shade. I've noticed that all of the fun colors at Meraki are so pretty and wearable. They have a softness to them that makes them look good on everyone.



The Meraki Up in the Sky blue nail polish was also such a pretty shade. It has a richness to it that makes it a bit darker than a typical pastel blue. I thought it was the perfect blue shade for summer and went very well with Sundaze. Try pairing the two - one on your fingernails and one on your toenails, or combine them for some colorful nail art!



At Meraki, you can find nail care items as well. They have gentle yet effective products; like a soy-based nail polish remover, nutrient-rich base coats, and a matte top coat. I really enjoyed their quick dry top coat! It helps to even out any imperfections, adds a beautiful shine, and of course helps the nail polish to dry quickly...in just 3 minutes!
