A few little buys

Revlon Lip butter - Strawberry Shortcake £5.99
I finally lept on the blogger bandwagon and bought a Revlon lip butter! (is that a little round of applause I hear?;) ) I have wanted one for so long, and after a Erin left a comment on my blog post telling me they were really good, I thought YOLO! (yes I did just use that ever so hated phrase, but I think it works quite well!) They were also £2 off in superdug, which I think works out cheeper than boots 3 for 2 offer. I am very glad that I bought it now so thank you Erin. I got the shade 'Strawberry Shortcake', it is a fairly light pink and it is soooo creamy and soft, but still well pigmented. I would definitely recommend them! The only thing that would really improve them I think is if they tasted like the names, if that makes sense? Because who wouldn't want  strawberry shortcake flavour lipstick/balm!
Sleek Blush - Flushed £4.29
I then lept on yet another bandwagon, and got a sleek blush.It is the shade 'Flushed' number 935.  I have heard so many people talking about them, and I just think they look so pretty in the sleek packaging. I know you shouldn't by make-up because of the packaging but I am a sucker for pretty pots and boxes.
I then popped into Laura Ashley to look around the sale. I had seen a really cute owl utensil pot online from here, but unfortunately they only had the white one in the shop and as much I still love it in white, it was £10 so I would prefer to wait and get the green one! So instead I bought this cute (not so little) teacup. It was £6 reduced form £10 in the sale. Seeing as I don't like tea or coffee you may be wondering why I bought this? Well I want to put it on my dressing table to look pretty, and to put things in.
