Dainty Doll Haul

Just before the post-There has been a bit of caos in the blogging world today about GFC being cut. Google are shutting down a different aspect but they haven't set a date for when GFC will go. Just in case anything happens it would be great if you could follow with the pink Bloglovin' button at the side bar. Better to be safe then sorry!

You have probably all seen lots of Dainty Doll hauls recently so hopefully you aren't sick of them just yet. I ordered a few things of Fragrance Direct for bargain prices and I am very happy with some bits but disappointed with others. If you're thinking of picking up a few bits then this will help you know what to get and what to avoid.

Concealer in 001:
I hate this concealer. It's in a compact so I was expecting something creamy but it is very very powdery and dry to the touch which makes it extremely difficult to get any product out. I've tried to work with it but it is completely useless and I wish I hadn't even wasted £1.99 on it.

Kohl Eyeliner in 003 :
I decided to add this to the basket to because it is so cheap and I have a brown cream eyeliner but not a kohl one. Again I find this difficult to work with as the texture is not creamy enough and it is hard to get product out. I do still use this although it takes more effort then I would like.

My Girl Powder Blush:
On a more positive side I adore this blush. The packaging feels sleek and expensive and it's handy to have such a big mirror.It has a fine milled texture that blends perfectly and it is so well pigmented. The colour is quite a cool toned pink with  silver glitter running through. You guys know I love a glittery pink blush!

Orange Country Girl Cream Blush:
This cream blush is another hit! I googled for swatches before I got this and new I had to have it. It's completely different to anything I have in my collection. On the cheeks it gives a gorgeous gold sheen which personally I love but it might not be to everyone's taste. I was a little worried that the red colour would end up looking constantly embarrassed but when applied with a stippling brush it just works.

The blushes made the whole order completely worth it for me. I actually really wish I had got more colours but I am greedy. If you're thinking of getting something then I would recommend getting the blushes and steering clear of the concealer.

Have you tried Dainty Doll?

  1. Glad you like some of it! The blushes I ordered were really impressive, but why would they be on a discount site? Perhaps they are being discontinued or do you think they may be repackaging?

    1. Yeah the skin was darker than the concealer underneath. To be honest if I had paid full price I would kick up a fuss! At least the blushes redeem the collection x

  4. Love your honesty! The concealers sound awful so I'll be avoiding those. I definitely want to try out the Orange County Cream Blush! It sounds great xx

    1. I'm always honest about products because I'd hate for someone to waste their money because of me. It is a gorgeous gorgeous blush x

  5. I've just used the concealer for the first time today and i can see what you mean about it being powdery! I'd definitely recommend the blusher in You Are My Sunshine, it's a definite dupe for Nars Orgasm :)

    1. I haven't but the concealer is almost white so the foundations should be too. Try googling for a review of the lightest shade x

  8. I bought the concealer and liquid foundation from Boots not long ago and I wasn't very impressed. Like you say the concealer is too powdery and not very blendable. The foundation really highlighted my dry patches and felt matte. Despite this, I wanted to try their blushes and lipsticks but I just didn't want to pay full price! When I saw the deal on Fragrance Direct I made a big order! 11 items! :D The haul will be on my blog tomorrow but I haven't tried anything yet :) xx

    1. It's so good that there is finally a brand for us pale skinned ladies. There's enough of us around in Britain with our rubbish weather x
