What's In My Makeup Bag | September


It's that time again where I give you a nosy of what I've been carrying along with me in my makeup kit lately. This post is roughly 7 months overdue (eep!) and in case you missed my very last one, you can have a read of my February edition right here. The contents of my makeup bag has changed dramatically since the beginning of the year and I have a couple holy grails, some oldies but goodies and new favourites that have made their way into my kit this September.

Springtime Beauty


The past couple of days have been the epitome of Spring with warm temperatures and bees buzzing about, even as I'm typing this the sun is shining oh so bright and I am just soaking it all in! With the change in seasons comes a new makeup regime and we are ditching the wintertime hues for fresh, colourful and glowy so here are my top picks.

L'Oreal La Vie En Glow Highlighting Palette


I know this palette has been out for a little while now, but I didn't have the urge to play with it until the weather warmed up since it does have quite a golden-bronze look to it. Now that Spring has arrived and the sun is shining, I am really feeling the lit-from-within vibe this palette is ALL about for the ultimate 'I just woke up like this' look we all strive to create.

The MAC Lipstick You Need In Your Makeup Bag


I am finally a proud owner of a MAC lipstick (about time right?!). I would not be surprised if I was the second last person in this country to have one in my possession, considering how much of a cult following their lippies have gained over the years. There are an abundance of shades from all the colours of the rainbow to choose from with a variety of lovely finishes in their range of lipsticks, but 'Faux' was love at first swatch.

A Few Drugstore Loves | August


Nothing makes my heart happier than discovering makeup that I adore whilst saving money all at the same time (sometimes we gotta be savvy spenders!) and in case you have not yet noticed, the drugstore have been absolutely killing it! I've got 3 budget-friendly makeup bits for the eyes, face and lips that have been getting a lot of love lately and are very much worthy of a place in your collection.

In The Spotlight | Maybelline Total Temptation Eyeshadow & Highlight Palette


Maybelline have dropped a new makeup range called Total Temptation that includes a mascara, eye brow pencil as well as an eye and cheek palette that I'll be going into detail about in today's post. Might I just add, it's WAY better than their other eyeshadow palettes!

What I've Been Loving This Year So Far


Instead of doing my July favourites, I'm bringing you a mid-year beauty favourites post (better late than never!). There have been plenty of different products I've been enjoying throughout the year thus far, but these five have not left my sight in a long while and have become a huge part of my daily skincare/makeup routine.

A Peek At The L'Oreal x Balmain Collection + Swatches


French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing (you may know him as the handsome creative director of luxury fashion house Balmain), have collaborated with L'Oréal to bring you 12 couture limited edition lipsticks by Colour Riche. Today I wanted to give you a peek at the most anticipated collection at the drugstore featuring 6 edgy, modern and fierce shades inspired by the runways of Paris.

The Mecca Max Beauty Queen Eyeshadow Palette


Fit for a beauty queen is this limited edition number by Mecca Max that is loaded with 15 dreamy, shimmering pigments for the eye and face to achieve the ultimate glam factor. Not going to lie, the marble effect sucked me right in and I could not resist temptation! Do I need another palette? Heck no, but it is unlike anything I own and it is heavenly.

Urban Decay Backtalk Palette. Worth The Hype?


If you're a makeup junkie then chances are you've seen this stunner just about everywhere you look. With eight versatile pink hues and four warm face shades inspired by their bestselling Vice lipstick shade in Backtalk (warm mauve), what's not to love?! But is it worthy of a spot in your glorious makeup stash?

June Favourites


Another month bites the dust so bring on July because it is one of two months out of the entire year I get majorly excited for (my birthday and Christmas of course!). How did June treat you? It was the official beginning of Winter and we've had some pretty chilly temperatures already (between 1°C and 6°C), so you can imagine the difficulty I've been facing getting out of bed each morning! But enough about the weather and let's talk new beauty loves shall we?

3 Things I've Learnt From 3 Years Of Blogging


Happy Birthday little space on the web!

So it's been three years since I became a part of the blogging community without any real clue what I was doing, but I knew it could be the start of something wonderful and it has been quite a journey! This post is all about everything I've learnt thus far as a blogger and also what's next for BlonDee's Beauty.

Look Fantastic Beauty Box | June Edition


I've been an avid subscriber of their beauty box for a good year now (this is actually my very last box - for now at least!), so I thought I would give you a look inside this month's Into The Blue theme of rejuvenating summery beauty bits. 

Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.

Matte or Gloss?


Matte lips were ALL the rage a year or two ago and it was the trend that filled our Instagram feeds with richly pigmented plush finishes, but the high shine lip has made a miraculous comeback and it's not going anywhere! So are you a matte lip or glossy lip person? For me, it all depends on what I'm in the mood for on the day and what makeup look I'm trying to achieve.

Review | NYX Total Control Drop Foundation


I was scrolling through my foundation reviews and it turns out my very last one was WAY back in September of 2017 (on the much hyped YSL All Hours), so you could say I am well overdue for another one! I like to read into whether or not some products are worth the purchase because this girl simply cannot afford to make it rain on every good looking product she sees. Sometimes they work for me and other times not so much but that is all part of being a beauty blogger so without further ado, here are my thoughts on the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation.

4 Products That Help Fight The Signs Of Aging


We are always on the hunt for some skincare product, treatment or latest technology to reverse the signs of aging or slow the process down all together, because nobody really wants to loose their youthfulness. Truth is, that's life and we can't escape the inevitable. But the good news is that over the years the quality, effectiveness and science going into anti-aging products have improved immensely, so here are my top tried and true age fighting skincare gems.

What I'm Packing In My Travel Beauty Kit


Since I'm going on a little trip up north this May (a family birthday celebration in case you were somewhat curious), I thought why not round up a small fraction of the beauty products I'll be packing in my travel kit and share them with you all today. I had to refrain a tiny bit because sacrificing clothing space for beauty space probably isn't ideal, so here is a peek at the lucky winners that made it to my minimal travel beauty kit.

Motivational Quotes for Bloggers & Entrepreneurs


For some, motivational and inspirational quotes are just a bunch of words that make their eyes roll out of their head. But for me, they really help me to hustle harder for my dreams and lift me up when I'm down so I can become the best blogger I can possibly be. Here are 12 of my favourite motivational quotes for the blogger, girl boss and entrepreneurs in general to help keep you going until you've crossed that finish line.

A Beauty-Full Mess


I put A LOT of thought into my content here on BlonDee's Beauty (us bloggers always do there's no doubt about it), but sometimes I even find myself overthinking so today I really just felt like writing an ultra relaxed post by compiling a miniature mountain of products for no reason at all other than because I love them. So sit back, make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy this beauty-full organised mess.

Bold Lips + Glowing Skin


Autumn's biggest beauty statement is the bold lip and keeping the base looking youthful, dewy and fresh (à la Karlie Kloss) has been my new favourite makeup look to wear this month. I've rounded up some of my go-to products including Guerlain and L'Oréal, that help me create the ultimate glowing complexion and fiery pout combo that surely turns heads.

One Blush Palette for Every Makeup Look


The great thing about blush palettes is every shade you could possibly need is all in one compact so no matter what makeup look you choose to create (for day or night), you'll always find the perfect accompaniment. Maybelline have released their Master Blush palette that allows you to mix and match shades for your own custom cheek colour which is really fun and artsy!

The Models Own Supernatural Palette


When I first had a peek at these shades, it was pretty much Autumn in a palette which makes it the perfect time to whip this baby out!

Beauty Samples I'd Happily Buy Full Sizes Of


Samples are an awesome way to get a feel of a product without spending a cent, so you can decide whether or not it's worth purchasing the full size (especially if they're on the pricey side!). What I have today is a handful of deluxe sized beauty samples that I have trialed a fair amount of times to know that I would gladly include them in my beauty routines.

Skincare on Trial


Sukin. The Aussie skincare brand where their products are formulated without nasties (like artificial colours and synthetic fragrances to name a few), contain naturally derived ingredients, are cruelty free and vegan friendly. I've been putting these three products to the test this past 10 days and since their Purely Ageless line has gone through a bit of a revamp, I thought now would be the perfect time to share my thoughts so far.

2018 Aspirations


I've been seeing these types of blog posts all over the web and it inspired me to want to write a list myself. At the beginning of every new year I will jot down some of my blogging aspirations or something else completely unrelated that has sparked my interest (some have question marks beside them), but it's usually for my eyes only. For some reason I was just beaming with excitement about sharing my list with you guys this year and guess what? I have already crossed one of these goals off my list (go me!).

6 Self-Care Acts For Your Best Year Ever


2017 wasn't the year of self-care, mainly because the entire concept of practicing it wasn't as easy as it seemed and I was often left feeling deflated and despondent. The good news is that there are ways we can integrate self-care activities into our lives to boost our well-being, which is something I am determined to put into action in 2018. So it's time to put yourself first and make this your best year ever by taking care of you!

The 2017 Look Fantastic Advent Calendar


Advent calendars are just one of my many favourite things about the holiday season because you get a surprise treat each day you move closer to December 25.

For today's post, I have gathered all my most-loved bits from this calendar to share with you and I'll also be giving you my thoughts on whether or not it's worth the purchase.

The Gigi Hadid x Maybelline Collection


After a little hiatus during the Christmas and New Year period, I'm back to kick the year off with a brand new blog post! I've seen many negative opinions around the web about this range being subpar and not being worth the hype or money, and since I was gifted a bunch of Gigi's products last Christmas from her East Coast Glam and West Coast Glow, now is a better time than ever to give you my thoughts and feelings on this collaboration.
