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.

My Favorite Nail Polish this Fall


I'm not gonna lie, since Halloween has come and gone, my family is very much looking forward to Christmas. But I promise both on Insta and on the blog, I will be patient and will continue to feature Autumn vibes as long as humanly possible! Today I want to share my favorite nail colors for Autumn, featuring Meraki Natures Cosmetics.

You may remember them from last season, or just the fact that they've been ALL over my Instagram for Fall. Meraki debuted several new shades recently, and I was more than happy to try a few out. Not pictured but worth noting from their new seasonal collection is Army Brat - an olive green nail color with gold flecks, and All Year Round - a versatile nude nail polish that is beautiful on any skin tone and suitable anytime of the year.


The shades that I tried really hit on each look that one could want for Fall. From a golden neutral and a feminine mauve to a warm classic red and a deep dark red, these really are the perfect Autumn nail colors.



I couldn't wait to try this first shade and found myself going back to it several times. "Walk with Me" - a dark maroon nail polish is one of my favorite shades during fall and winter. This nail color is very buildable. If you want a very dark almost purplish red, simply apply an extra coat or too. And as you can see above, it works so well with the lighter shade as an accent color.


While classic red is a must during any season, "Taken by the Wind" is such a warm classic red nail color that couldn't be more perfect for Autumn. And as classic red is a must during the holidays, I'll get a lot of use out of this nail color well into the winter months.



As I tend to go for darker shades, especially during the colder months, I don't ordinarily reach for neutral nail colors. However this "Autumn Scent" - a warm golden nail color was a big hit on my Insta. It's a very unique and versatile shade in that it's gold-toned but isn't exactly a gold metallic. It's such a beautiful transitional shade to wear as the leaves begin to turn. The warm undertones look great with other Autumn shades like red, orange, and brown; so if you're looking for the perfect nail color to go with your favorite Fall outfit, this is it.



This final swatch is my current favorite. While I do absolutely love the dark vampy red as well as the warm red, I'm really loving this light and feminine mauve nail color "Fall'n for You" lately. It's a lovely shade to wear all season as well as into winter. It has a warmth to it that goes beautifully with winter whites.

In addition to having such beautiful and wearable Fall shades; the nail polish at Meraki is 7-free, cruelty-free, and offers a high quality long-lasting formula. Check out their nail care products for items like a quick dry top coat, nourishing base coat, and an acetone-free soy-based nail polish remover.

Shop these and other seasonal shades at Meraki, and let me know in the comments below which one is your favorite!
