Mini Haul

I went shopping today into Newcastle. I tend to do this about every 1 or 2 months, mainly because they have a bigger primark,topshop, all saints etc and more selection. I was going to purchase some things from MAC, mainly Well Dressed blusher but didn't end up unfortunately.

I only made one make up purchase, a Revlon Matte lipstick in Pink Pout. I am very into bright lips at the moment, mainly pinks since the arrival of blonde hair :) I've saw these Revlon Matt lipsticks on other blogs and was curious to what they were like in person. I opted for Pink Pout over Nude Attitude as I thought this would be more wearable.

I would describe this lipstick as a dusty pink. I thought it would be similar to Barry M's 100 (which I love, a perfect barbie pink, I'd recommend it highly) but the Revlon is much more of a muted pink. However, it still is very vibrant and long lasting. I actually couldn't believe how long this lasted, I put it on after lunch and is still on (albeit not as perfect) whilst I'm writing this at 9.20pm. The only downside I have to say is it is very drying. Has anyone else experienced this? My lips are just dying for a coat of Vaseline!

I have been wanting a grey blazer for a while now, my black blazer is never off my back, I love the combination of leather leggings and blazers. I found one in Primark for a mere £17.

It has some terrible naff black buttons on, which I am planning on taking off and sewing on some buttons that I found in Fenwicks haberdashery section.

p.s I'm having real problems with blogger! When I upload pictures, they go straight to the top of my blog post and I have to drag them down to the bottom where I want them. It also leaves huge gaps between my writing, which I have to go back and alter. This is sooo fustrating, I end up nearly throwing my laptop out of a window in anger haha, am I doing something wrong?

Any help would greatly be appreciated!! thankyou x
