The Style Edit | Stripes

You guys know I don't typically write about fashion but the idea of doing a little series of different style pieces got me really excited, and I thought it would be a great way to bring some more variety to the blog. Now I've never been big on wearing stripes but it has somehow eased its way into my wardrobe, and something about Spring has got me crazy about this staple piece.

4 Products To Help Make Your Foundation Last Longer

As a gal with oily skin, I go above and beyond to ensure my foundation doesn't move an inch which is kind of a hassle (I envy you guys with a normal skin type!).

Thankfully, there are an abundance of products that can help make your foundation last longer for all budgets, and I'll also share with you some little tips that play a huge role in the longevity of my base.

A Few Drugstore Loves | October

I started this series back in July where I share just a few drugstore discoveries that have won me over, and I do love my affordable beauty products so I thought it was about time that I did another.

September Recap

Hello lovely people, I hope September was a killer month! As you would have gathered by the title, today's post is a roundup of the past month with each and every blog post I have published, so you can catch up on what I've been up to.

September Favourites

The first month of Spring has whizzed by which still felt like Winter, but it definitely is beginning to warm up! I surprised myself a little when I realized that there isn't a single makeup product in this monthly favourite post, and that's mainly because I haven't been wearing much of it and if I did, it's been the same products on rotation. I have a few skincare bits that I've been enjoying as well as a book that is a bit different for me, so here is a look at what I've been loving this September.

A Weekend Pamper Routine

It is so important to take some time away from our busy lives and focus on ourselves, because we all need a break from time to time to just recharge; and what better way to do so than to dedicate the entire weekend to pampering myself.

6 Beauty Products That Did Not Impress Me

The perks of being a beauty blogger is having an excuse to try a whole bunch of different products to then report my findings with you guys. Along the way I have discovered some fabulous products that I consider to be my holy grails, and then there's the ones that didn't quite meet my expectations and have been shoved to the back of the pile. So today I bring you 6 beauty products that I'm sad to say, are a bit of a miss for me.

A Beauty Anti-Haul

We all talk about the products we wish to own but never about the ones we wouldn't want to own. Sometimes I come across products that just don't appeal to me which could be due to the concept, the shade range in a palette or the high price tag (maybe even all three). A quick disclaimer; it's not that I think these four products are terrible in any way (I know they get a lot of love from others!), but I just don't see myself adding them to the cart in the near future and here's why.

Some Cult Favourites That Are Worthy Of Their Status

Cult favourites are the ones that have won many people's hearts, are recommend by fellow beauty enthusiasts and are the holy grails of the beauty world. Now I haven't had the pleasure of trying all of the cult-classics out there (like Kat Von D's 'Lolita' and Laura Mercier's Translucent Setting Powder), but the five that I have are definitely worthy of their title.

What's In My Makeup Bag | September

With the change in seasons, I hit the reset button and updated my makeup bag with some more appropriate springtime products. So this month it has been all about keeping my makeup looking fresh with lightweight bases and pretty peachy hues.

The Rimmel Only 1 Lipstick + Swatches

I know I've said this multiple times but once more couldn't hurt! Rimmel produce top-notch lip products with this range being one of my most loved lippies from the drugstore. There are a total of 20 flattering shades but today I will be bringing you 7, so here is an in-depth look at these budget beauties that I'm always reaching for.

Travel-Friendly Makeup to Take on Your Next Trip

I don't know about you but when it comes to my travel makeup bag, I get very particular about what products to pack and which to leave behind. I consider EVERYTHING before I am perfectly content with my makeup bag because the last thing I want is to carry an expensive powder for it to shatter, an eyeshadow palette that isn't versatile for every occasion or a bronzer that is just too bulky which won't leave room for my favourite foundation. So here are a few bits and pieces that would be great additions to your travel makeup kit for your next vacation.

15 Things You May Not Have Known About Me

This isn't the kind of post I typically write (you guys know I'm a true beauty junkie), but I thought it would be a wonderful way for my readers to get to know the girl behind BlonDee's Beauty. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen the poll on whether or not you would like to discover more about me and I was given the green light so here it is!

September Goals

I was browsing through my archive of blog posts when I noticed that the last time I wrote about my goals was back in July of 2016! I think it's safe to say that I am well overdue for another. So here is a list of tasks and goals that I am aiming to crush this September.

Review | YSL All Hours Foundation

I'm back today with a foundation review that I am most excited about as this is quite new from YSL and it has some serious claims, like the formula being waterproof as well as transfer-resistant. So I have put it to the ultimate test and I'm here to give you my honest opinion (as always!) on whether or not it's a total must-buy.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box | August

I've been on a few beauty subscription boxes in the past, but after a while they became repetitive and underwhelming. Once I read how many were absolutely blown away by the product selection is these boxes, I just had to sign up! So today I am bringing you the Global Glamour edition where I will be giving you a brief overview of each item and what I think of these beauty boxes so far.

Spring Wishlist

A new season calls for new wardrobe additions, and there's just something about the season that unleashes my ultra feminine side! For me, it's all about delicate flowy fabrics and pretty florals and I have a bit of a mix in this wishlist. These gorgeous pieces immediately caught my eye, almost begging me to buy them so without further ado, let's talk about these four stylish items that I am absolutely swooning over.

Foolproof Brows

I tried going for the Insta-worthy defined brow look but it's takes a lot of effort to perfect (or maybe it's just me?), and sometimes they just don't want to cooperate so you end up with a big ol' hot mess. I have since moved onto the effortless brow look which is incredibly easy to achieve and completely foolproof.

20 Things That Make Me Happy

I haven't published many blog posts that are more on the personal side and that's definitely something I'd love to change because I'd want you all to get to know me a little better. The idea of this post came to me as I was scrolling through social media, and I thought it would be a nice way for my readers to learn a little more about me. So here is a list I have put together of the twenty things that make me happy.

Transitional Beauty | Winter to Spring

Winter is coming to an end here in the southern hemisphere - even though as I'm typing this it doesn't seem that way when it's raining and hailing right in front of me. But technically speaking, Spring is just around the corner so it's time that I share with you my transitional beauty products.

Pretty In Pink

Pink is actually my all-time favourite colour for as long as I can remember and even though it's not a colour that I wear much of (except for my pyjamas with puppies on them), I do like to wear pink shades of makeup from time to time. Here are some of my well-loved products for when I'm wanting to look pretty in pink.

3 Makeup Products That Are Still Exciting To Use

It's jump up and down exciting when your favourite brand just launches a shiny new product, and you cannot wait to play with it. But often after a while, the thrill of using them fades away and we move onto the next exciting product. As a beauty blogger, I'm guilty of unintentionally neglecting products simply because I'm always trying new ones, but there are a few that I still find to be an absolute pleasure to use.

Blogger Recognition Award

There has been a Blogger Recognition Award floating around Twitter lately and I was lucky enough to be nominated by Chloe from Simply Chloe Blogs, so a big thanks to her!

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! I reached a milestone in June where it was my second year blogiversary (could not be more proud of myself!), but if you didn't get around to reading that post or if you're new to the blog, you can catch up right here on what I got up to this past month.

Friday, 30 June 2017

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.
