I was browsing Fragrance Direct at the weekend when I came across some Dainty Doll cosmetics. After a quick search on Twitter and Google, other bloggers found them on the website a couple of weeks ago, but I had completely missed the mentions! I was expecting to find ugly shades that couldn't be flogged anywhere else, but was pleasantly surprised when I looked at the cream and powder blushes, which were selling for just £1.99 each. I ended up buying 6 of the shades, oops! But all of these came to less than one would originally cost. Also, none of the other products interested me. I don't wear foundation or eyeshadow, and the lipstick shades didn't appeal to me. And, although all 6 are labelled as blushes, I'm going to use one of the creams and one of the powders as bronzers. When opening them, I noticed that each shade of the creams matches with one of the powders, so I can set them, ensuring they last all day. My first impressions are good. I love the colours, and the powder blushes are soft and pigmented. The cream blushes aren't as creamy or pigmented as my NYX ones, but neither are the other cream blushes I own. Their pigmentation isn't bad though, and can easily be built up. Some may see this as a good thing because you're less likely to give yourself clown cheeks!
