Save $$$$$$ With Groupon*

This is a sponsored post and contains sponsored links. 
Opinions are all mine. 

I am going to assume that most of my readers have either read my previous Groupon post or know of Groupon and if you don’t here’s a little background on it. Groupon is a website and an app where you can virtually find a coupon, a discount and a deal for almost anything in your area.

For me of course I spend my time on Groupon in the beauty section, DUH! So I will go to the health, beauty & wellness Groupons and spend my time scrolling through. You will be able to find deals on nail and hair salons, places for eyelash extensions, waxing’s, facials and SO MUCH MORE. And when I say so much more, I actually mean it! With Groupon you are really able to save tons of money on all types of places, items, vacations, and of course they have local deals specific to your area.

I also want to mention if you don’t have the Groupon app I highly recommend you getting it, its completely free and allows you to browse deals on your phone at anytime. So when your wanting a fresh mani pedi I will look up local manicures and find a deal or coupon that fits my needs!

Groupon is by far one of my favorite websites and apps to find deals and steals on and it should be yours too! Also check them out on Facebook & Twitter

Dear Jeffree Star: You Should Tell The Truth

 I wanted to share my opinion on this whole Jeffree Star issue because WHY NOT! I’m a beauty blogger, I use makeup products and I am passionate about what I write and I wanted to get a little more personal and share my personal opinion on all this Jeffree Star crap! I want to also add that I have done my research, not only have I read up on stories from the past, I’ve watched YouTube videos from other people and then watched of course Kat’s video and then as I type this I just finished Jeffree’s.

Firstly I can’t even imagine how much will power it took from Jeffree to sit down and create this video, he isn’t raising his voice and is keeping things calm, which I can respect. But what I cannot respect is the words that are coming out of his mouth. Multiple times he has mentioned respecting people and from what I have seen and heard he doesn’t do that a lot with the way he lives his life. If someone brushes up against me do I get a little pissed yeah sure, but do I swat him or her away? HELL NO! So in my opinion I would keep the word “respect” out of things. Here is a video of him swatting someone away at an unknown event.
This is also just one specific time where he is seen on camera not respecting people.

I think this video is not addressing the correct things and I truly do hope he comes out with another one in the future regarding his bullying, non-respectful words and actions and just some other stuff he has done in the past. I do think these are more important things to address rather then just commenting on every single thing that Kat had mentioned in here video.

Previous to all of these viral videos on Jeffree I could honestly say I didn’t know about many of these things, I saw his products all over Instagram and watched his YouTube videos and nothing else. When Kat posted her video I was reading more into some things and some people recommended I watch Stephanie Nicole’s video. That is where I found out most of my information along with going through all of her links and doing some more in depth research. Yes, his Snapchat’s and Tweets, some articles and videos of him do show his true colors and I really honestly think this whole Kat & Jeffree issue is a public friendship fight. Friendships end every single day and the fact that they both are extremely public figures and decided to make this public is bringing up some old and unresolved issues.

I do not think anything he addressed in this video was a problem to me just like what Kat addressed in her video was not a problem to me. Bigger things need to be addressed because until they are me and quite a lot of other people will no longer be buying from Jeffree Star Cosmetics or supporting him on social media. He has way bigger issues then just a little friendship feud with an old friend of his. 

I have also provided links to all the videos I mentioned and hope you enjoy this type of post from me! I also have something VERY exciting happening soon and you need to follow me on Snapchat to get involved!! Here is my Snapcode so add me and stay tuned! 
See you soon beauties and let me know in the comments your take on all of this!

Here I have a review on basically my new holy grail makeup brushes! They were sent to me and are from My Makeup Brush Set and are called Oval Brush 10 Piece Set! Keep reading to see my thoughts and I have an extra savings at the end for you!! 

What they say: From highlighting to contouring, this 10-piece set gives you so many options for doing your makeup. The brushes have a round shape design that's perfect for blending foundation, blush, or powder to your face or cheeks. With so many different sized brushes to choose from, you can achieve any look you want!

Everything they say could not be more accurate; these brushes help you achieve basically every single look out there while giving you a completely flawless finish. I could really not be more pleased with these brushes and I have to admit they have all become a new part of the Coco makeup collection and I use at least one of them every time I do my makeup. They are absolutely affordable, 
and I can guarantee you if you buy these brushes you will fall in love just like I did.
 When they first arrived I was like dang these are the softest brushes I have ever felt. They are made with synthetic hair and feel absolutely beautiful to the touch. When I did my first application of foundation, contour, highlight and applying color to my lips I was amazed. Not only do they feel beautiful to the touch, they work beautifully on your face. Never once did I feel like it left my makeup streaky or cakey looking like I’ve had my makeup look in the past. I would also highly recommend starting out with the normal amount of foundation you use and work up if needed. I usually use two pumps of my Revlon Colorstay foundation and I found that on days where I wanted to cover up more spots I used an extra half a pump and it worked perfectly. You can really play around with the brushes also to see which brushes you liked for what application. I use the biggest brush for multiple things; I use it for my foundation then concealer and then to blend everything out. You can really mix and match them to fit your exact needs.

To sum this review up, you do not need to splurge if you are looking for an oval brush makeup set, you need the oval brush set from My Makeup Brush Set! 
To sweeten that deal even more you can use the code ‘KUWCOCO10” for 10% off your My Makeup Brush Set!

Sometime in the near future I will be posting either a mini tutorial on Snapchat or Instagram so if you are interested to see and learn more about the application follow me on both! My name is “kuwcoco”!

Honeybee Gardens Review*

What they say: Honeybee Gardens was created in 1995 by author and herbalist Melissa J. Buckley. Years of herbal study prompted Ms. Buckley to create natural personal care products for her and her family. What began as kitchen cosmetics soon turned into a profitable enterprise. You will find our products in health food stores, pharmacies, on-line stores, herb shops, specialty and gift stores worldwide. Honeybee Gardens products are created entirely of natural ingredients that you can actually pronounce! We reuse and recycle as much as possible and perhaps most importantly, we DO NOT test ANY of our products on animals, and are PETA certified. All of our products have also been reviewed by the Environmental Working Group, and all have a score of 2 or lower. We are also Feingold certified.

I got one of Honeybee Garden’s Truly Natural Lipsticks to try out, the shade is San Francisco and lets start my review of it! I have to start off by saying THIS SHADE IS BEAUTIFUL! It is the perfect balance between a frosted and shimmer lipstick and really works! I would consider the color to be a perfectly rose shimmery lipstick. And when I say shimmery don’t get scared because its actually beautiful and not overwhelming like some shimmery lipsticks are. It lasts a pretty good amount of time on my lips even while eating and drinking it lasted well and even after washing it off I still had a hint of color and shimmer left on my lips. Did I mention it contains organic ingredients, is gluten free and vegan? Well it is and that’s a major plus in my book since I want to try more organic and natural makeup!
If you are in the market for a new lipstick, which I always am I would highly recommend checking out the Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick and of course while you are their check out the rest of the line as well!

And of course follow them on

Elizabeth's Daughter Review*

What they say: Elizabeth's Daughter was created to provide beautiful, simple and effective skincare for young girls. It was born out of the frustration of trying to find products that were not harmful or astringent and fitted into busy young lives.
Having suffered with skin problems for many years and struggled to find products that suited my own skin, I was particularly concerned about my daughter's skin. I wanted her to learn from my own experience and understand the importance of looking after her skin, not only from the outside but from the inside too.
The range was developed in conjunction with a leading authority in botanical extracts and natural products. Every Elizabeth's Daughter product has its own story to tell, with each natural ingredient selected for its unique health and well-being properties.

Firstly the story really sells me on these two products, they sent me The Purifying Mask and The Daily Moisturizer. The story behind it all is very sincere and makes me love these products even more.

So let me tell you about The Purifying Mask! This is a deep cleansing mask to purify skin and eliminate toxins and I have to say I don’t have the best skin and I tend to have a new pimple or three every week and this was the best mask for troubled skin I’ve ever tried. I also really love that it doesn’t completely dry down to the point where if you even speak some masks will crack on you. That was a winner in my book, it also smells fresh, is a normal color and it works! Some masks that I have previously tried are vibrantly colored and when you wash them off they get your towels all kinds of colored and this one like I said is a normal nude color so I didn’t have to worry about that! When I put it on I really felt like it was working! It’s a short mask so its only 3 minutes so you can always put it on before a shower, let it do its magic and you’re completely done and purified!

Now onto The Daily Moisturizer! Another amazing product! I actually have it on right now! It’s a body and facial moisturizer that has an SPF of 15 in it so you can wear it every single day! It moisturizes and gives you a sun protectant which in my book every moisturizer should have SPF in it! This is another product that REALLY works! It goes on like a lighter moisturizer but works like a thicker moisturizer without feeling thick and keeps wherever you apply it feeling nice and fresh all day. Its not sticky, doesn’t have a strong scent and dries quickly so again, all wins for me! I also love that you can use this on your entire body, like I can use it on my face before bed but I can also help that dry patch I still have on my hand from the winter!

Both of these products have become staples in my skincare routine and I highly recommend you check them out and see what products you may like from them. I only tested out two but I cant imagine any of their products being bad! They are also based out of the UK but they do ship to the US so check them out!

LinziClip Review AND GIVEAWAY!*

What they say: The Linziclip® is a revolutionary new hair clip which thanks to its patented advanced gripping mechanism and two spring device, camouflages the inner workings of the old style claw clip whilst gripping the hair better than ever before. And the springs are hidden.

First of all LinziClip sent me a ton of hair clips to review and they also want to do a giveaway!! So keep reading until the end of this post to find out more information! These clips are totally the clips of the future. Personally I always wear clips in my hair but they are always the cheap plastic ones you get at the beauty supply store and they just look cheap and my mom is always asking me Nickki don’t you have other clips that are dressier and my answer is always no. Well now I do! These clips come in SO many colors, designs, styles and sizes that your options are basically endless. They even have clips based on your hair type, which amazes me! Not only do they take the look of a simple clip to the next level they hold your hair in place better too! If you have any type of hair and ever consider wearing a clip, you need to try these clips out they are winners in my book!
