Review- Dainty Doll


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, 


Here is a good example of this and when she later decided to embrace her beautiful natural pale skin... its good to be different! and work with what you have.




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.

003 Money talks blusher/bronzer


Money Talks swatch
I love this product when i swatched this colour in Boots i fell in love, its a bronze colour but too subtle to be an actual bronzer, to me its the perfect contour it add great definition to your cheekbones, or it gives a lovely fresh faced glowy look as a blusher when applied to cheeks, to me this isn't just for the really pale skinned as I'm not 'that' pale it work's just fine for me, the colours a slightly shimmery taupe/bronze colour ( its quite hard to describe but its lovely!) id recommend you swatch this if you pass it in the shops.


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

  2. Everything looks lovely from this collection but I find the packaging quite boring apart from the boxes and it's a bit expensive, but the lipstick looks great on you! <3

  5. She definitely looks better pale! I was thinking of trying some out as I'm quite pale, definitely considering the bronzer for contouring as often those kits can be way too dark for my face...
