Reviews: L’Oreal Super Liner Superstar liner, Catrice Pure Shine lip balm and Rimmel’s Lasting Finish by Kate Nude lipstick collection

L’Oreal, for the most part, have always whipped out fab eyeliners and their pocket-friendly newbie, Super Liner Superstar eye liner (R144,95), is no exception.

It claims to have a ‘corseted tip’ but I honestly have no idea what that means and I don’t care. I just love that it’s got a super fine tip that allows precision but a long, exposed body so you can lie it flat and ‘drag’ it across your lid for ease of application. Also, depending on how you position it, you can create lines that are as fine or fat as you want.

The colour’s fab too – a zexy pitch black – but do note that this baby isn’t waterproof.

Moving on! I attended Freebees PR’s media day a while back and it’s going to take me a while to get through to massive sack o’ goodies they gave me. (Or the good ones anyway. I don’t just feature whatever I’m given. Only what’s good and I think you’d want to know about. Ain’t nobody got time for pooh mascara, yo! I need something that’s going to bring dem boys to the yard. And why on earth have I started talking like Rihanna? Can we get an emergency espresso over here please?!)

Anyway, one of the gems I’ve discovered is Catrice’s Pure Shine lip balm (R89,95, Dis-Chem) which is pretty much a dupe of Clinique’s infamous chubby sticks. I really like how the colour actually shows up, but is still sheer so you can slam it on while you’re driving with a devil may care attitude to where it ends up.

Each shade feels hydrating on your lips, has decent staying power and a subtle sweet scent. (Lip crayons without scents and flavours bore the shizzle out of me. Do you feel the same?)

Finally, let’s talk about Rimmel’s new Lasting Finish by Kate (Moss) nude collection lippies (R89,95 each).

As a super pale peep, none of these shades flatter me (hence the lack of on face shot) but if you’re big into nudes you might just meet your match.

For the record, it’s clear that olive nude is far more ‘apricoty’ than apricot nude and I’d have totally switched these two shade names around, but as I have it here it is correct. I’ve double checked.

See anything you like?

Love, love

  2. Hiya Leigh. Any idea who stocks these new Rimmel lippies? I’ve been searching for them at Clicks stores far and wide and none stock them? (Sad face)

    1. Hi Nikki! Apologies for the slow reply. I know they’re definitely in stores now (saw them in PE) so I reckon call a few in your area to see if they have them yet to save on driving around.
