Confidence Boosting Beauty

There are many ways to boost your self-confidence (like exercising and giving yourself a well-deserved pamper), but for me the simplest and fastest way to do that is by wearing beauty products that help to make me look great on the outside. Because let's be real, we don't always feel good about ourselves, so here are some favourites of mine that never fail to improve my self-esteem.

What's New In My Makeup Stash | August

The last 'What's New In My Makeup Stash' was quite some time ago (March of this year I believe!), so this post is definitely overdue. There have been a lot of exciting new additions to my stash since March, but today it's all about the newbies of August and boy am I looking forward to sharing these four with you!

Brand Focus | L'Oreal Paris

My love for L'Oreal as a whole is pretty strong; their range of skin care, hair care and makeup never fail to impress me which just shows how much effort and thought goes into each of their products. As you would've guessed by the title, this month's brand focus is all about L'Oreal and five of some of my much loved beauty products.

Your New Favorite High-End Lippies

My love for lipstick has always been strong. From high-end to low-end, I don’t discriminate. However, I do have a few high-end lippies that I love just a tad more than the rest.

July Favourites

Another month down, four more until Christmas! July was my birthday month and I had a wonderful time spent with loved ones. Not to mention, I got very spoilt and I even treated myself to some new luxe goodies (including Guerlain). I've been liking a lot of beauty/makeup products throughout the month, but narrowing it down to my top three favourites was unexpectedly easy.

5 Maybelline Lip Liners to Try

I have a tendency to skip lip liner all together and go straight for the lipstick (except when it comes to a bold red), and I think that's mostly due to the fact that I don't have many to begin with. So I had a browse through Maybelline's stand and picked up a handful of their Color Sensational Lip Liners to feature in today's post, where I will also include swatches and go into detail about the overall products.

The Serum Edit

I will admit, I get lazy with serums but I've been easing myself back into using them as of late by incorporating them into my daily skincare routine. I do feel that serums majorly benefit the skin and they target all kinds of skin concerns, so here are my top three that I have on rotation.

A Guerlain Meteorites Duo

I have been drooling over the entirety of Guerlain's beauty range for quite some time now (a year at least!), and what better time to indulge than my birthday month. So let's have a closer look at these luxe beauties!

3 New Revlon Additions

Revlon are at the higher end of the scale (price wise) compared to your other drugstore brands like Rimmel and Covergirl, and they're not a brand that I use much of which is why I have added a few more to my tiny collection. They're all base products (my favourite!) so here is a little overview of these new goodies.

Review | Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation

Now that the massive hype over this foundation has died down a bit, I thought that now is the perfect time to put my thoughts and opinions out there in the beauty world on whether or not it's a must-buy.

20 Things to Love About Winter

This might shock you but I actually don't mind Winter at all. Which in a way shouldn't be right because what's there to like about dreary, rainy and cold weather? Yes the weather is grey and super depressing, but there are many things to enjoy about the season like hot chocolates with marshmallows, cozy knitwear and lazy weekends.

NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream + Swatches

I've found myself having a real soft spot for not only foundations, but lip products also (especially those nude shades!). So of course today's post is all about the NYX Simply Nude Lip Creams that have been sitting in my makeup organiser just dying to be worn.

Products That Have Impressed Me This Year So Far

Being a beauty blogger (and makeup junkie!) means I am always on the hunt for new products to trial and feature on the blog, because nothing excites me more than discovering a new love and being able to share it with you all. Now that we are just over half way into the year, I wanted to talk about the good handful of products that have wowed me throughout the past six months of 2017.

A Few Drugstore Loves | July

I was on a mission to explore the cosmetic aisle of my local Priceline and round up some products that are new to me. This is only a snippet of what I actually purchased from multiple trips (I have quite the haul), so I thought I would break it up and perhaps create a series of these posts about my newly found drugstore loves every few months or so. Let's get the first post of this series on a roll shall we?!

Ready, Set.. GLOW

I'm sure I can speak for a lot of highlighter addicts out there that they are one of if not, THE most exciting makeup product to put on your face. There is just something so satisfying about a good glow and no makeup look is really complete without it. So here are my current top picks for achieving perfect glowy skin while making those cheekbones pop.

A Winter Makeup Menu

I actually don't mind Winter at all, even though as I'm typing this my hands feel like icicles. This season can wreak havoc on your skin/makeup routine which is why it needs a good refreshing to combat everything it throws at it. This Winter makeup menu is all about products that will brighten the most lackluster of skin (after the cold air just sucked the life right out of it), and keep it well hydrated to withstand those low temperatures.

June Recap

Well we're officially more than halfway into the year; It's like I blinked and hello, it's July!

June Favourites

By the time this goes live on the blog, it'll be my birthday the following day (woohoo!), so I am welcoming July with open arms! Before I get too excited and completely off topic about the anniversary of my birth, let's talk about what I have been loving throughout the month of June.

In The Spotlight | BYS Berries Palette

The latest addition to my eyeshadow collection is this gorgeous 'Berries' palette by BYS that has been getting a lot of attention within the beauty community. So I thought, I better get you guys in on what all this hype is about and finally write this post for you all because this palette has totally won me over.

Brands I Want To Try More Of

There are an abundance of wonderful brands out there in the beauty world that I haven't gotten around to trying as yet (I'll get there one day!), but today I wanted to write about the ones that I wouldn't mind trying more of. So here are the brands that I've tried once or twice and have gotten my inner beauty lover wanting more.

Review | Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

You might have heard that the Healthy Mix Foundation has had a bit of a revamp (in formula and packaging) and it only just launched not too long ago here in Australia, so I am very excited to review this one for you guys because spoiler alert - I think we're onto a winner!

What's In My Makeup Bag | June

If you've been following my blog for a while you would know that I've been keeping my makeup routine fairly simple, so my makeup bag has been feeling quite light this June. The last time I gave you a look at what's in my makeup bag was way back in February, so it's definitely time to update you on what products I've been carrying around with me this month.

Today I wanted to take the time to say a big "thank you!" to each and every one of you who read my blog, because it truly means a whole lot. To celebrate this milestone, I thought I would take you on a journey through the years of BlonDee's Beauty.

If you caught my minimal makeup routine you would've read how much I've been into effortless makeup as of late, and these three gorgeous eyeshadows are the perfect example of simple and fuss-free makeup.

Brand Focus | Savvy by DB

You may have come across the Savvy stand in your local Priceline, but if you're unfamiliar with the brand here is a little background info: They are an Australian cosmetics brand who offer a wide range of budget-friendly products that cover everything from your base to lips and all things in between. I haven't seen a whole lot about them on the net, so I picked up a handful of their products to feature it today's brand focus just to give you an idea of what they are all about.

My Minimal Makeup Routine

I've been really appreciating effortless and minimal makeup after being inspired by French beauty. Sometimes it's a mix of sheer laziness (hence the minimal makeup routine) or sometimes I feel like embracing natural beauty by going back to basics. So here are the five products that I've been currently using in my minimal makeup routine.

The Lip Trio I've Been Wearing This Month

I love me a good nude lip as much as the next girl and no matter what the season, 90% of the time I will reach for a neutral lip colour. Usually I just throw on either a nude lipstick, lip liner or lip gloss but lately I have been wearing all three and I think I have found my ultimate nude lip trio!

Wednesday, 7 June 2017

The L'Oreal Color Riche Le Vernis A L'Huile

You can never have enough nail polishes I say. The same thing goes for eyeshadows and lipsticks because there are an abundance of colours with different finishes, so some variety never hurt anyone! But we're not hear to talk about eyeshadow or lipstick, we are here to get a closer look at the L'Oreal Color Riche nail polishes that have been on my nails every single week for the past month.

Affordable Photo Styling Props

I am in no way an expert or a pro when it comes to photo styling (I'm still learning as I go), but what I do know is there are an array of inexpensive props (even things that you might already have lying around the house) that can instantly elevate and enhance the overall look of a photo. So today I wanted to share with you what I like to use to style my photos and hopefully it'll help you out the next time you're stuck for ideas.

May Recap

I went through a phase in May where I just lost my groove and struggled to find the motivation to blog (we've all been there). Don't get me wrong, I LOVE blogging as it brings me a lot of joy, but May just wasn't my month. I still managed to pump out blog posts and kept to my regular schedule (three posts a week) so if you didn't quite get around to reading them, you can catch up right here.

May Favourites

Happy June! For you guys in the southern hemisphere, hello Winter! 

I didn't fall in love with many new products throughout the month of May (I mostly stuck with the same beauty and makeup routine), but these three that I'm about to share with you have impressed me so much so, that I think will become a big part of my makeup routine for months to come.

The leaves have fallen and Winter is slowly approaching which means it's time to whip out those warm, cozy knits and start preparing all things beauty for this chilly season.

4 Steps to a Flawless Finish

Achieving complexion perfection doesn't have to be a time consuming process involving a ridiculous amount of products, or require professional makeup skills to master. Today's post is all about how to nail your base using only four products so you too can rock seamless and perfected skin.

Out-The-Door Beauty

An Introduction to Colourpop

Believe it or not but this is my very first Colourpop order (about time!), and I couldn't be more thrilled about finally seeing what all the hype is about. I was completely overwhelmed by all of their lovely products and colours so I played it safe and went straight for their best sellers. I am most excited to share my little haul with you today, so let's get this post rolling!

Rimmel's Everyday Wearable Nude Lipstick

If there's one thing Rimmel does exceptionally well, it's lipsticks. I just can't stray from the classic nude lip, and the Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss are a big time drugstore favourite of mine. The nude lip is pretty much the makeup equivalent to the little black dress simply because it looks flattering on everybody and it can be worn at any time of day for any occasion. So let's have a closer look at this lovely collection of on-trend neutrals that beauty lovers are absolutely adoring.

The Anti-Aging Duo I'm Loving Right About Now

Being in my late 20's, anti-aging products are a huge part of my skincare routine in helping to slightly delay the aging process and combat those fine lines that are beginning to peek through (especially around the eyes). We've all gotten sucked in by those anti-aging creams and serums that claim to perform all kinds of miracles on the skin, but they just end being a total waste of money. For the past few weeks I have put these two Lancôme products from their Advanced Génifique range to the test, so today I'll be sharing with you my overall thoughts and why I think they are a must-try.

Travel-Friendly Palettes

What makes the perfect travel-friendly makeup palette? For me it has to be something of fantastic quality with variety and something very versatile. I went digging through my stash and picked out a bunch of palettes that would make great travel companions, so no matter the outfit or occasion these five will have your back.

3 Face Masks for 6 Skin Concerns

As you may have gathered from the photo, the face masks that I speak of are the one and only Pure Clay Masks by L'Oreal. In case you haven't seen these floating around the Internet, there are three multi-tasking masks in the range that target specific skin concerns with the use of different clays. Here is an in-depth look at what these are all about and if they're a must-have in your beauty regimen.

Brand Focus | Models Prefer

If you live outside of Australia then chances are you have never heard of Models Prefer, so let me tell you a bit about the brand. They are owned by Priceline (our leading health and beauty retailer), who offer an extensive range of affordable beauty products from skincare, hair care all the way through to cosmetics. So here are a handful of makeup products from the brand that I am super excited to share with you in this post.

Monday, 8 May 2017

The Face Powder Edit

Face powders are in everyone's kit and play a massive role in our makeup routine because without them, our makeup would be sliding off our face (which is less than ideal!). Today I'm bringing you four powders that do a wonderful job at setting your base and really help to extend the wear of your makeup, so you can look flawless all day long.

Review | L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation

When L'Oreal releases a new product, I am generally all over it in a heartbeat (which shows just how much of a huge fan I am), and this foundation was no exception. You may have seen me briefly talk about it in my what's new at the drugstore a few months back, so here I am today finally reviewing it for you guys.

Wednesday, 3 May 2017

New In | Sally Hansen Color Therapy

The concept of incorporating an oil into nail polish had me super intrigued and excited to try Sally Hansen's new Color Therapy range. If you haven't heard or seen these around at your local drugstore, you can read all about them in today's post where I'll be sharing my thoughts and whether or not I think they are a must-buy.

April Recap

As cliché this is to say, April really did fly by and we are almost halfway into the year (crazy right?!). Around this time 2016, I traveled to the states which was an incredible experience that feels like it only just happened yesterday. While we're on the topic of the past, in case you didn't quite catch all the blog posts I published last month you can have a look through right here on my April recap.

April Favourites

April has been an eventful month for me with Easter and a few birthday celebrations, so I got stuck in a bit of a routine with my beauty/makeup products. However, amidst all the busyness I did manage to find the time to try some new and exciting products, so here is a look at what I've been loving this April.

ASOS Wishlist

Do you ever get bored of your wardrobe or have that 'I have nothing to wear' moment even though your closet is overflowing? Well that happened to me recently which was a big indicator that my wardrobe needed an exciting change. The last time I shopped at ASOS would've been over a year ago, so I thought it was about time that I had a little scroll through their collection. There were so many stunning pieces that I was absolutely swooning over, but I managed to narrow it down to five so here is what's on my ASOS wishlist.

Budget-Friendly Bases

Since a lot of affordable beauty brands have upped their game over the years, more and more people are realising that you don't need to spend an absurd amount of money to look utterly fabulous. Today it's all about the base, and here are my current favourite budget-friendly foundations that every makeup lover should own.

Friday, 21 April 2017

In The Spotlight | e.l.f. Blush Palette

E.l.f. are known for their affordable yet good quality products ranging from skincare all the way through to makeup, and they are a very well loved drugstore brand. I've had their blush palette for quite a while now, but I only just rediscovered it after I rearranged and tidied up my makeup collection. Now that I have reunited with this pretty palette, I finally gave it a good workout so I can give you my honest opinion on it and see what all the fuss is about.
