Hello there! I was always aware of the brand Dainty Doll and I've always wanted to try it seeing as it's directed specifically at pale girls it seemed perfect for me. I have very fair skin and sometimes it can be quite the pain when it comes to makeup (don't even start me on the foundation quest). I always walked by the stall at boots and swatched everything but never quite took the plunge. But.. when I heard Fragrance Direct were selling the products at 80% off. yes, that's right 80%. I had to reason to say no anymore. And not only that but I could buy a good few things. I couldn't quite contain my excitement!
Please note: I tried to use the most natural lighting possible so the colours come up true to real life. Compromising on the attractiveness of the photos!
My spoils included:
- A powder blush in 'Hippy Shake'
- A powder blush in 'Money Talks'
- A cream blush in 'Paper Roses'
- A cream blush in 'Orange County Girl'
- A lipstick in 'Couture'
- A lipstick in 'Baby Love'
- A eyeshadow in 'Treat Her Like A Lady'
The lipstick packaging is metal and sturdy. It feels expensive and not cheap or plasticy which I lovee. I think the packaging on all these products is super cute. The 1940's inspired line is beautiful to look at.
This is the shade 'couture'. Admittedly it looks terrifying, but it's a dark vintage 40's red and I'm in love with it.
This is the shade 'Baby Love'. It's a nude pink (the pinkness doesn't pick up too well in the photo). It is very chic and great if you're looking for a new nude. From my first impressions I've found both lipsticks to be moisturizing and creamy.

In the blush department I went a bit mad.
The packaging has a matte black finish, so (something similar to Nars packaging) it's gonna get grubby. But as it stands it looks pretty good. It's not too bulky either!

Hippy Shake is like a pale lilac/pink colour.. it's deceiving in different types of light! I hope it'll flatter my pale complexion well. Money Talks is the thing I've been waiting for for so long.... a contour colour for fair skin! It's a sort of taupe colour. Perfect! Can't wait to try it out properly.
I also got two cream blushes :)

(Excuse my reflection.. haha)
From what I've gathered so far these are delightful and lovely and creamy. I'm hoping to purchase a stippling brush soon and think it'll be a great way to apply these.
The packaging is identical to the blushes only eyeshadow sized!
It's a beautiful taupe colour, a nice neutral shade which I think I'll get lots of use out of!
Time to assess my savings!Powder blushes: RRP - £13.50. I paid - £1.99!
Cream blushes: RRP - £13.50 I paid - £1.99!
Lipstick: RRP: £12.50 I paid - £1.99!
Eyeshadow: £11.50 I paid - £1.99!
