The Lauren Conrad Beauty collection has been a long time coming! As a fan of The Hills and following Lauren Conrad’s career for years, I’m thrilled that she has launched this line! Even better, it’s now available at Kohl’s! My longtime readers will know I’ve featured the LC Lauren Conrad collection many times on this blog. I’m so excited to try out this new beauty collection and can’t wait to share my thoughts with you.
A few weeks ago I happened to stop by my local Kohl’s to get out of the house and do some fall shopping. Imagine my surprise when I cut through the beauty department and saw a full display of products from this collection– I had no clue Lauren Conrad Beauty was going to be launching at Kohl’s! (I think the store accidentally put the items out too early, tbh). The line was originally launched with a very edited collection of items, yet now includes skincare, eyeshadow palettes, powders, and more!

First, how chic is this packaging? I love the soft peach-pink color and sleek font. The best part is that the packaging is eco-friendly– the brand has even put together a recycling guide on how to best recycle the products. I love that more brands are incorporating sustainable, eco-friendly practices. Not only are the products recyclable and not made using fossil fuels, the line is cruelty-free and features clean, ethically-sourced and vegan ingredients.
For skin, the line contains everything from cleansers to face creams, makeup removers and more. I picked up two skincare items to try, starting with The Toner Mist. This mist is very refreshing and contains skin balancing ingredients such as rose water, vitamin B5 and licorice root extract. I use it after cleansing to tone skin, and also spritz on after makeup to give my skin extra hydration and dew.
After moisturizing skin, I like to follow with The Vitamin C Oil. I’m a sucker for everything vitamin C and was super excite to try this facial oil. It’s extremely lightweight and gives my skin some extra hydration. The oil is a blend of vitamin C (sunflower seed oil), marula oil and rosemary extract, which is an anti-inflammatory.
It is one of the more pricier items from the line at almost $40. It has a barely there scent and is a good option if you’re looking for a lightweight, clean facial oil.
On my shopping trip, I picked up some additional makeup products that were not part of the initial launch. The Concealer is a buildable formula infused with avocado oil, vitamin E and caffeine. The line offers 8 shades and blends into skin nicely.
It is described as being medium to full coverage, however to me the coverage was very light. I had to apply a lot to cover darkness under my eyes and feel that it still didn’t cover enough. This was my least favorite item from the collection, I wish it had better coverage! The line does not include a foundation but does offer a skin tint and a finishing powder.
One product I absolutely love is The Lip & Cheek Tint. I have the shade ‘Peony and it gives a pretty, dewy color to cheeks- it looks so natural! You can also apply to lips but I use it solely as blush. The creamy formula can be applied with fingers and is buildable to deepen the color.
I also picked up The Liquid Highlighter that gives a pretty pearly champagne-colored glow! It catches the light beautifully and I love how it blends into skin. I like to apply to tops of my cheeks, but it can also be applied to shoulders and décolletage for a pretty glow.
The Lipstick is a smooth, semi-matte formula that offers super comfortable wear and vibrant color. The formula is infused with shea butter, grapeseed oil and argan oil which helps to hydrate lips– no dry, chapped lips here! The packaging is completely recyclable & is one of the first single-material lipstick tubes available. Pretty cool, right?
The Lauren Conrad Beauty line originally launched with four shades but not offers 8 gorgeous rosy-hued shades. I have’Shell’ which is a pretty nude-pink shade. Of course the line offers Lauren’s signature bright red (Poppy). I absolutely love how this lipstick wears and how it feels on my lips, I definitely want to pick up other shades.
I also really like The Lip Gloss, which gives my lips a pretty shine. There are several shade options that can be worn on it’s own or layered over The Lipstick. I picked up the shade ‘Rose Quartz’, which is perfect to top over lipstick to add a glossy finish.
Brows are a must so I picked up The Eyebrow Pencil, which has a pencil on one end and a spoolie brush on the other. I find that this is a good, every day brow pencil to define brows. The formula wears nicely and does not smudge. The spoolie makes it easy to blend in the pencil to make brows look super natural.
Since a liquid liner cat eye is Lauren Conrad’s signature look, The Liquid Eyeliner was a must try. Liquid eyeliner isn’t always the easiest to apply, however this liner applies like a dream. The fine brush tip glides along the lash line perfectly, leaving a super black line. It is perfect for beginners and experts alike. The liner doesn’t smudge and lasts all day–I recommend using an eye makeup remover to take off. Super impressed with this eyeliner!
Another product I am super impressed with is The Eyeshadow Palette, available in two options. I chose the warmer nude palette Sunrise, which I thought would be gorgeous for fall makeup looks. The palette has 8 coordinated shades which are super pigmented, blend beautifully and look gorgeous on. Each palette has a mix of matte, satin and shimmer shades to create a variety of beautiful eye looks.
Overall I am very impressed with the collection, ingredient stories and types of products offered. I can tell that a lot of thought and love went into creating this collection from the eco-friendly packaging and clean ingredients. I highly recommend giving this line a try, especially if you are interested in clean beauty. Looking forward to new releases and seeing the growth of this brand.
Lauren Conrad Beauty collection is available at Kohl’s. Unfortunately since this is a prestige line, it is not eligible for promotional offers and coupons. However, they do offer gift with purchase offers and you can use Kohl’s Rewards & Kohl’s Cash.
