For this post, I’ve included some of my favorite products for spring 2017 – including my everyday highlighter and bronzer and other products I think are perfect for this time of year.Read More »
Hello everyone! I know its been quite some time since I posted but I just couldn’t get the time while I was in Florida and since I’ve returned home, I have been sick with the flu 🙁 But I’m excited to finally get this post up, I’ve been working on it for awhile!
Kylie has stated that the only place to purchase her products is from the official website www.kyliecosmetics.com, but what if you came across a product for a lower price on ebay or another website that claims to be the real product, how do you tell it’s real?
Ever since the Royal Peach Palette was released, I’ve wanted one! I’ve come across many replicas and honestly, I wouldn’t have known the difference since I hadn’t seen the real one. So today, I’m going to show you the difference! One of these palettes I purchased for $15 (Can) on a Facebook group and the other is the real deal from kyliecosmetics.com for $45 (US).
If you haven’t been in contact with the real palette, would you know which one of these are real? Even looking at this picture now, I can’t tell the difference!
Hello everyone & happy Friday!
I recently purchased some new products from the drugstore; some items I’ve been wanting to try, others are products I’ve used before. Keep reading to see the products I purchased, reviews, and swatches!
I’ve seen these drugstore versions of nude palettes for awhile now, but I always hesitated to purchase them. I decided to pick up two Maybelline palettes – the Nudes and the Rock Nudes because the colors looked gorgeous!
My first impression with these palettes:
These palettes have such beautiful colors and the perfect amount of shimmer and matte, even your basic black is included! However, the pigmentation is definitely nothing spectacular. I had to go over each swatch quite a few times to get the color to really show up. I will post an update when I first use them to see how they blend and wear. These palettes sell for around $17.99 each.
The third palette I purchased is the Rimmel Magnif’eyes shadow.
My first impression:
Again, I love the colors of this palette; there is more shimmer than matte eyeshadows. Still, the pigmentation was a letdown. I really had to dig my fingers into these palettes to get the color for a swatch. I will post an update when I first use this to see how the shadows blend and wear. This palette retails around $16.99.
I also purchased a new bronzer and blush palette from Elf. I picked up the Light blush palette and the Golden bronzer palette.
My first impression:
I absolutely love the color of the bronzer! It gives you a natural sun-kissed glow – who wouldn’t want that! The blush colors are a little pink for my liking, but these palettes are so pigmented and retail between $4-$6!
I then repurchased an Elf primer and the Hard Candy Glamoflauge concealer while the L’Oreal eyeliner and Maybelline brow pencil are new.
I really enjoy the Elf primer ($6.00) since it is lightweight and leaves a nice smooth base for your foundation. So far, I haven’t had any issues with this primer! The Glamoflauge concealer ($6.99) is true to its branding – it is definitely heavy duty! I found this concealer to cover just about any imperfections on my skin!
I have yet to try the Maybelline brow precise shaping pencil ($10.99) but I enjoy using brow pencils and it even comes with a grooming brush! I can’t imagine not liking this product. Lastly, I have to test out this L’Oreal Infallible never fail eyeliner ($8.99). I have extremely watery eyes so I’m excited to see if this can pass the test and wear for 16 hours as the label says. This eyeliner also comes with a smudger that I can’t wait to try! I will post an update after a wear test and let you know!
That’s it for this drugstore trip. I hope you enjoyed reading this post!
I’ve decided to switch things up here on Coffee & Little Things. Typically we see Friday favorites, but Fridays are pretty great anyway, aren’t they? Monday is my least favorite day of the week, to change that, I’ll be giving myself something to look forward to – Monday Favorites!
Here are some of my favorite things from the weekend:
I am OBSESSED with this 360 cashmere sweater! The relaxed fit makes it look super comfy and I love the skull detail! It has a hefty price tag so I’m still looking for alternatives!
I came across this luggage tag last weekend and I fell in love! I didn’t pick it up then and now I’m having major regrets. I’ll definitely be purchasing this before my vacation next month!
How adorable are these Valentine’s Day sugar cookies! The simple ingredients make them that much better!

Lastly, how perfect is Demi Lovato’s Grammy look! I love everything about this, from the beachy waves, the smoky eye and nude lip, to the dress itself. She looks like a bronze goddess and everything is complemented perfectly!
I am currently working on a few projects for the blog, so keep an eye out for those, they will be coming soon!
Thanks for reading & happy Monday!
