Review: Dainty Doll Blusher in Money Talks

Saturday, 20 July 2013
Hello everyone. I mentioned the Dainty Doll Blusher in the shade Money Talks in both my Fragrance Direct Haul and my June Favourites and I got a lot of requests for reviews/swatches. I took these photos ages ago and they've just been sitting in my 'to blog' folder. I apologise for the delay but I am now really in the mood to blog about this so lets get started!

The Dainty Doll range was started by Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud and is specifically designed for girls with really pale skin. I think this is really great as I have very pale skin and I find it hard to get products that will actually work for me. I'm not sure if the brand is liquidising or if they're selling old stock to make room for new products but Dainty Doll products are available on Fragrance Direct for very cheap prices. I think everyone and their mother snapped up one of these blushes. And I can understand why, at £1.99 down from about £13 it would be rude to say no.

I was drawn towards Money Talks, a shimmery browny mauve, as I'd heard a lot of other bloggers say that it was a great contour for pale skin. Bronzer is kind of scary when you have really pale skin, the last thing that you want to do is end up looking muddy and cheap. But I'm pleasantly surprised with this.  It's a beautiful shade that works really well as not only a contour but also as a blush. When swept across the cheeks it gives such a lovely bronze glow. Something I'm really not used to seeing on my pale skin. The pigmentation isn't exactly crazy with the blusher, but I think that's really the point of it actually. It is very easy to build up, so if your skin tone is a bit darker I'm sure you'd be able to get some use out of it. The blush lasts very well on the skin, you can tell that it's from more of a 'high end' brand. The packaging is very sturdy and sleek looking which I really love. Overall I'm super impressed with Dainty Doll as a brand and this blusher. The blushers are no longer available on the Fragrance Direct website, but I want to try out some of their other products.
