DAINTY DOLL

Dainty Doll

Sometimes, an offer comes along which sounds, well, too good to be true. So, when I saw a tweet saying I could buy Dainty Doll make up for a bargainous price of £1.99-2.99 per item…I had to check it out.

As a fair skinned lady, Nicola Roberts’ ‘Dainty Doll’ make up range has always appealed to me. I’ve scouted Boots on numerous occasions but never taken the plunge. Why not? Well, despite always buying the palest foundations, (we’re talking 001 Ivory here) I’ve never had the problem of orange undertones which many report. So it always seemed a bit of an indulgence.

When I read the tweet, from a well-known deal site, I was in the bath… hair full of suds, half way through the chorus of the Baywatch theme tune. Knowing that these deals quickly sell out, I launched myself out of the bath and headed straight onto the Fragrance Direct website to see what they had to offer.

My, my…there was lots. I expected to find  the dregs of the Dainty Doll range, a bargain basement, think neon pink eye shadows and glittery eye liners. I was pleasantly surprised.

So, what did I get? A whole stack of gorgeous products.

Grand spend: £22.90
(that’s including post & packaging)

For nine products, which usually retail around the £10 mark, I’m sure you will agree what bargains I’ve scored.
A word about Fragrance Direct: Before this, I had never heard of Fragrance Direct.  I was a little sceptical about purchasing in bulk from an unknown website. My fears were totally unfounded and I can’t recommend them highly enough. I received email confirmation, dispatch confirmation and the items arrived when expected. The post and packaging was a bargain price of £1.99 and arrived safely in a protective box.
As I only wear foundation and concealer on nights out, I’m saving these products until then. Who knows, I may even do a cheeky make up review. But due to my undying love of red lipstick, Saucy Sailor was right out the box and tested this morning. It even inspired my outfit choice. I’m impressed with the colour, it’s less harsh against my pale skin tone and has lasted all day, despite a few cups of coffee!
If all of the Dainty Doll products are as good as this lipstick, I shall be a returning Dainty Doll customer!
