Raquel’s Top Trends of the Week

Meet Raquel: She’s our socially distant Head of Social Media & Influencer Relations and loves cringe-worthy reality tv, vintage designer finds, and sunset walks on the Socal beaches. Unable to head to The Grove and shop IRL, we asked her to share her Top Trends of the Week (as seen on Kickback).


Many of our fave retailers have been closed due to the current pandemic – whoever said shopping wasn’t “essential business” has a different value system than I do ;).


Jokes aside – while the Kickback team is all happily quarantining at home, I have certainly been able to step up my online shopping game. Reminder, if you shop through Kickback, you’ll get discounts to great brands like Sephora, Nike, Chewy (and more!), plus earn cashback for every purchase (that’s a win-win in my book). 


Here are my Top Trends of the Week – and the products I’m currently obsessed with.

1. Backyard Babe Alert (Frankies Bikinis, Leigh Top + Tavi Bottom)

As a California native, I practically live at the beach. Frankies Bikinis is my all-time favorite swimwear because the quality is amazing and the pieces will never go out of style. 

Insider Tip: Not only is this bikini adorbs AF, but it can be worn as a cute crop top too. I would pair this with a cute pair of high-waisted vintage jeans and some sneakers. Perfect for summer time vibes… that is if we actually get to experience summer this year… Kidding (not kidding). 

2. Just Do It, Did It, Will Do It Again (Nike Air Force 1 Sage Low)

The perfect white sneaker. Air Force 1’s have been my go-to sneaker for the past few years but these new sage platform sneakers have changed the game. I love the way they can dress down a cute dress or the way they look paired with my favorite jeans and Nike sweatshirt. They’re so cute (& comfy) that both of my roommates ordered them through Kickback, too! We love a ~matching~ moment. 

3. “I Think It Might Be Magic” (Caudalie)

There’s definitely a reason why the Radiance Serum Complexion Correcting has become a cult favorite. I’ve been using this product for just a few weeks and I have already seen a major difference in my skin. I’ve noticed that my dark spots have visibly reduced and my skin looks brighter! This product is absolutely something I will be restocking up on again.


4. Gucci Gang (Gucci Gloss)

This multi-use gel gloss creates a luminous effect and can be used on both lips and eyes. Another reason why I bought it? It’s tiny enough to fit in my baby Gucci bag. 😉


5. Pucker Up (Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper )

I’ve been obsessed with this lip plumper for yearssssss. You know you’re using a good plumper when your lips tingle after application hehe. There are a few cute shades to choose from but I like to stick with the Original Clear shade because it can be worn alone or on top of your favorite lip liner/ lipstick. 


Throw it in your purse and you’ll have perma-lip inspo “Bella Hadid lips” everywhere you go. 


6. Que Rico (Moroccanoil Treatment Oil)

This Moroccanoil Treatment Oil is definitely a hair must! Especially as LA starts to heat up and hair starts to turn a bit dry. This product contains antioxidant-rich argan oil and shine-boosting vitamins that help create perfectly shiny hair. Your hair will look and smell amaze. 


7. Wine Not? (WINC)

Last but not least, my favorite part of quarantine – wine. Winc is a wine delivery service that ships your favorite wine to your front door. You can choose from all different types of wines, I’m currently obsessed with all red wine at the moment. Nothing like sitting back & sipping on my wine after a long day of walking around my apartment. 


Well there you have it – all of my current favorite products. Shop all my favorites on the kickback app ( link app) and save as you shop. Let me know what you pick and share your favorites below!
