THE BLOGGER CHRONICLE: MARCH'S LEOPARD PRINT ADVERTISER

Introducing

Blonde Beauty Blogger



Hello lovely Good Golly Miss Hollie readers :)
For the next 30 days I have the pleasure of being Hollie's 'Leopard Print' advertiser and I would like to use this post to introduce myself a bit.

Over at www.blonde-beauty-blogger.com I blog about beauty, lifestyle and occasionally fashion! I have a massive issue with buying make-up and beauty products so what better way to justify this than by reviewing said products for all to see!



I started my blog last year, after having a Youtube channel for just over a year. I decided to make the jump from Youtube to Blogging because I started to feel quite self conscious making videos after more and more of my friends started finding my channel. It's still there, and I hope to go back to it one day but at the moment I am loving the blogging world!

I love the community that blogging has, and I have met some lovely girls through the events and meetups I have attended. The sense of togetherness and friendship is something you can't not feel when you begin blogging, and every single person I have met or spoken to since starting out has been amazing.

I have decided to write my post based around high street vs high end make up.

Now, like most of you out there, I do not have a tree at the end of my garden that grows money
 (pause for daydream).
So when a high street brand bring out a 'dupe' of a well known high end product, I jump at the chance to own it and review it on my blog!

Some of my favourites include:

Benefit Porefessional vs MUA Matte Perfection Primer
Clinique Chubby Sticks vs Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
Urban Decay Naked Palette vs MUA Heaven AND Earth Palette
Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo vs ELF Contouring Blush AND Bronzer powder

If there are any others that you know of and can recommend please let me know!

All of the above are amazing dupes and offer the same great product for a fraction of the price. 

There was a #bbloggers chat on Twitter not too long ago based around whether other Beauty Bloggers felt high end or high street offered better products. A lot of bloggers out there agreed that high street have grown so much over the past few years, that many don't feel the need to spend hundreds of pounds on expensive brands.

I for one, feel that, as a beauty blogger there is a small amount of pressure to constantly feature higher end brands on your blog to keep it 'current' and popular. However, after being involved in that #bbloggers chat it made me realise that a lot of girls feel the same, and that actually people are more interested in SAVING money than SPENDING ridiculous amounts.

So now, instead of saving up for that one cult product that everyone MUST have, I love to rummage around pound shops, Boots and Superdrug for cheaper alternatives and amazing finds.

I would love to know any dupes you have found, or how you feel about this topic in general.

It would be amazing if you guys would pop over to my little blog and let me know what you think. I love finding new ones so if you do visit, please comment and leave your own blog link and I will definitely check it out.
