Dainty Doll

Well I know everyone seems to have gone crazy for the Dainty Doll Discounts that are about at the moment, but I just couldn't help myself! I was mooching through Amazon when I noticed the amazing sale Nicola Roberts' make up range had an couldn't help choosing a few pieces to try, which turned into a few too many, luckily I'm ├╝ber happy with everything I chose!! :)

I picked four blushes, four lipsticks then four other products just to top it all off!

The blushers I chose are three powder ones then one cream blush. Money Talks Blusher - Bronze, Hippy Shake Blusher - Lilac, My Girl Blusher - Pink and Orange County Girl Face Blusher - Creme Peach. All are amazingly pigmented and look lovely on fair skin, which the range is targeted for.

The lipsticks are Lilac Material World, Red Saucy Sailor, It's My Party - Bright Pink and In His Kiss - Soft Pink. I'm addicted to these lipsticks and since they arrived I haven't stopped wearing them! My favourite is In His Kiss which looks so pretty along side smoky eyes. They all feel moisturising on the lips and the colours are buildable so you can have them as soft or built up as desired.

Lastly I chose four very different products.

The Mascara-Liquid Eyeliner Duo, I love the mascara but haven't tested the eyeliner as of yet but it looks lovely. A clear Lipgloss which feels really soft on the lips not tacky at all like some glosses. A mineral powder foundation in the colour Medium, the consistency of this is really nice but the colour is little dark. However as its light weight and more on the tanned side it may be perfect for when I'm on holiday and hopefully have more of a sun kissed glow to my skin! And lastly my favourite product The Working Girls Wonderbalm for everything from chapped lips to dry elbows similar to Elizabeth Arden's 8 Hour Cream but in a very handy compact with mirror!

All in all I am over the moon with my purchases and hope the Dainty Doll range isn't being discontinued! Have you tried anything from the range? What's your favourite Dainty Doll product?

Lush Handmade Colour in Bubbly

Just a quick one today, but oh my goodness I'm loving Lush's lasting lipstick in the colour Bubbly - Laugh out Loud! It has slowly become my go to lip colour for everyday! I apply their Honey trap lip balm beforehand and I am left with soft, hydrated lips with a beautiful dusk pink with golden shimmer colour! Great combination :)

Has anyone else tried the Lush handmade colour pots?
