Dainty Dolly Haul


Hello Lovelies!

Who am I to pass up a good hyped up product? I was in one of my local pharmacies lately and I just had to pick up some Dainty Doll products. I've seen so many bloggers getting some of these products off Fragrance Direct for next to nothing, and I tried to resist I really really did but once I knew that they were available in a local shop so I wouldn't have to wait for delivery and all that jazz, I just couldn't resist any longer! I caved. But in my defence I only spent €3.50! Yes I got a Cream Blusher and a lipstick for €3.50! 

I had heard about the Dainty Doll brand quite a while ago. Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud basically is the main girl behind it and she's designed it for fairer skinned ladies such as myself (trust me, under all the tan I'm practically see-through!) but since I'd never seen it in shops or online I had never really investigated further! Until now! I picked up a vintage red lipstick in Saucy Sailor and a baby pink cream blusher in Paper Roses.

The cream blusher is absolutely amazing! I have been alternating it with my Maybelline Dream Touch Blush which you all know I love, but on days when I'm not feeling the "berry" look on my cheeks I go for this. It's lovely and light, not at all greasy and lovely and pigmented so you only need the tiniest amount! The lipstick I would quite easily say is comparable to MAC quality except it cost me €1.50! Again it is amazingly pigmented, really long lasting and it feels nice and creamy on the lips. It reminds me of the Creme Sheen formula from MAC. 

I also think the packaging of these products is really nice. Sleek, compact and lovely..what more could you want? Have you tried anything  from the Dainty Dolly collection? Let me know your recommendations!

  5. I've taken advantage of the Fragrance Direct prices too, the powder blushers are just lovely. I've also tried an eyeliner which is awful, no pigmentation at all and the concealer/highlighter pen which smells weird. But for the blushers alone, I didn't mind wasting my money on the highlighter and eyeliner.

  11. I'm going to be popping up a post sometime this week! I got two blushers and one lipstick, all of which I've been really impressed with. I got my blushers off Fragrance Direct for £1.99 each and the lipstick off ebay as they'd sold out on the website for £3.00! xx
