Hey girlies, hope your all well,
So Dainty Doll was created by Nicola Roberts, previously in Girls Aloud but now a solo singer.
Nicola designed this range after finding makeup was always to dark for her pale porcelain skin tone so decided to launch her own cosmetic brand called Dainty Doll after finding that there wasn't much of a market out there specifically for ladies with paler skin tones like herself. But she did seem to get alot of stick about being pale so famously always tanned to supposedly fit in with the other band members of GA.
I'm not too pale but certain ivory foundations can be still to dark and Orange for my skin tone so i always go back to loreal true match foundation in w1 which is golden ivory.
But anyhow i was passing the Dainty Doll range in Boots before Christmas and was curious about the sades on offer so had a browse and came across the blushers (i have a slight obsession with blush)
She did seem to get alot of stick about being pale so famously always tanned to supposedly fit in with the other band members of GA,
Isn't the natural look so much better! before i think her look was rather tacky, but now she looks stunning shes ditched the fake tan, and bought her red locks back, i think Nicola's inspiring to people that feel like they don't feel fit in somewhere because of their looks.Just go with what you have and enhance your natural beautiful selves don't change for other people or just to fit in.
Nicola Roberts has made me not want to fake tan as much as before because pale can be beautiful and thanks to her Dainty Doll range you can enhance your natural pale skin with ease :) and look beautiful..
I bought 003 Money Talks Blusher/Bronzer and 002 Saucy Sailor lipstick
The packaging - I really liked the outer packaging, its in a nice sleek black box with Dainty Doll written down the side in gold lettering then Nicola Roberts under that, and opposite to that is a 'vintage cartoon like' picture of a red haired pale lady looking all glamorous.
then the casing itself is a lovely black smooth plastic with Gold Dainty doll written on them they have an 'expensive look' to them, the blusher includes a decent sized rounded mirror as well, as for the lipstick.. when open the rim of the lipstick casing is a gold metal which looks lovely too.

002 Saucy Sailor Lipstick
This lipstick is a beautiful classic red colour, its very pigmented and needs to be applied with a steady hand like most red lippies, i got this because i needed a red lipstick added to my collection and i thought this shade of red was perfect as I'm quite fussy with reds, id say it lasts about 2 hours on the lips but when the colour fades it gives you a nice just bitten pout.
I do feel like when i wear this i have to be having a 'brave day' as it brings alot of attention to your face.
Overall i think i would defiantly repurchase the Blusher and id love to try some more from this range, have you tryed any? if so id love some recommendations,
Hope this has been helpful to people wanting to maby buy some of this line.
Thanks for reading
