I’m still alive!

But only just. This week’s been a bit of a killer work wise which is great for my ‘buy a house without a man’ plan, but not so good for my blog. But I’ll be back soon, I promise. Friday at the soonest and Monday at the latest. Thanks for bearing with me! Leigh x […]

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 […]
