Some super exciting news – Laura Loves Beauty Blog moves to .com


92 Exciting

After a lot of hard work, long hours and confusing web design stuff – I have some really awesome news, has gone live!

Same content, but even better! I have worked (and am still working) really hard to make this website bigger, more exciting, more interactive and more fun. I really hope you like the new layout and logo too! Postings will continue to be regularly uploaded on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays- with special postings over the weekend now and then. If you are already one of my fabulous subscribers, don’t worry, I have transferred you over to my new blog already! But from today on-wards all new content will be on the new website, soon this website will automatically transfer you over there too.

Moving over to a self hosted .com site means that the blog now has more opportunities to get involved with bigger brands, products and news. And this has already started happening – I can’t tell you all my secrets yet though, but be watching this space!

I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all my readers and supporters – you are helping this blog grow! Especially the team and girls at Bloggers Club, my family, my besties, Make Up Obsessives (which fuels my make up addiction daily on Facebook) and @reallifeauckland

Social media links are all the same, follow Laura Loves Beauty Blog on Instagram or Twitter, and have a look at my Bloggers Club profile for my NZGirl content.

I would love to know what you think of the new site, so please feel free to comment or contact me =)

Where in the world is Kylie Jenners nude lip colour?!?




Kylie Jenner is my make up crush of the moment – seriously how does she get so much sass and cool into one look – and then do that like every day?! Not only has her new hair colour been the talk of the town, but that nude lippy she has been rocking since Coachella is just straight up perfect. Continue reading

Korean beauties and brands – a beautynet korea review

beauty net koreaEver since the outburst of BB creams into the western world I have kept my eye on Korean beauty products and brands, and my love for them has grown bigger and bigger. It seems that Asian beauty brands, especially in Korea, are always on the cusp of new breakthrough ingredients and they also have the most cutest packaging I’ve ever seen! Continue reading

weekend haulI’m not the only one that goes out just for a normal, average Saturday and ends up with a few little bags of beauty products right?!? A few of these bits I had in the back of my mind that I needed to pick them up at some point Continue reading

Frank Scrub review – been thinking about getting in the shower with Frank?

photo 1 (12)Frank is the talk of the town at the moment. He’s smooth yet rough, sweet but also a little bitter, and smells like a warm Sunday morning where you’ve gotten the perfect amount of sleep in. The coffee scrub targets dry skin, stretch marks, eczema, acne and any other exfoliation needs your skin requires. It is next level body scrubbing.

The balance between scrubbing away the ick stuff while moisturising and looking after all that good stuff is why I really like this product. The coffee grounds, brown sugar and sea salt smooths whilst the sweet almond oil and vitamins soothes Continue reading

What to do when your skin turns on you…

dheaYour skin is supposed to be your buddy right? Like your best friend, being smooth, bright and looking after all that gooey stuff inside. But what happens when it just up and changes on you?!? For better or for worse, it’s weird having to get use to a change when your skin has been the same type for a while. My personal experience has been Continue reading

Nails of the moment – featuring Ulta3

photo (11)

I don’t feature nail products much on my blog, despite the fact that I have a pretty big collection and you will hardly ever, EVER see my nails bare. Being lucky enough to stumble across the huge range of nail polishes from Ulta3, I got inspired to share my nails of the moment!

I used two shades, firstly ‘fruit tingle’ which is a bright summery pink, and ‘over the rainbow’ a sequin disco-fest of colour. I used ‘over the rainbow’ to also double as my top coat. Continue reading
