  Every now and then I do a little haul when there’s 3 for 2 in Boots or Superdrug – and in this case, I was looking for the L’oreal Glam Shine Diamantissime lip gloss as I have thing for super duper glittery glosses at this time of year.  I ended up taking advantage of the 3 for 2 by purchasing an eyeshadow palette and a Super Liner, as I love sponge tipped liquid liners.  I […]
