Fragrance Direct Haul

Recently I have been seeing a few bloggers mentioning that +Fragrance Direct are selling Dainty Doll products for only £1.99. This is the first time I have heard of fragrance direct and a great opportunity to try Dainty Doll for the first time. Also I noticed that the site was/are selling Calvin Klein and Jemma Kidd products for £1.99 - £2.99. Such a super bargain! 

Dainty Doll, if you don't know, is owned by Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud and she created this make-up to suit girls with pale skin, like hers, who may find it difficult to find colours to match their skin. Also there is other make-up I decided to grab myself 4 blushes, 2 concealer pens (however I received 2 of the same colour, which I don't mind) 1 brown eyeliner (which I also received a second of) all of these costing just £1.99 each and I can not believe how much money has been saved(!) Also from the sight I got the Jemma Kidd Front Cover Touch-up Concealer Pen in 01 Fair and the Calvin Klein Delicious Truth Lipstick in Illusion.

1- 001 Hippy Shake which looks like a real pale pink but actually it is a pale purple and surprisingly I really like it. It is very light and I had to keep going back in the get the swatch I got and it is darker than that in the flesh, but I just can't wait to see what it looks like on and if you don't want to use it as a blush then just use it for an eye-shadow instead, as it is a matte blush so it will work great as either.

2- 002 My Girl a really nice pink and will look nice in the summer as it is a 'healthy' pink I think (oo that rhymes) and will look beautyiful as just a wash/pop of colour. I would say if you were going to buy one blush then buy this one as it is a good natural, everyday pink and so you can use it very lightly or build on it if you were to go out maybe. This blush has a little shimmer to it as well so it will also work really nice as an eyeshadow, if pink is your thang. 

3- 004 You Are My Sunshine after seeing quite a few swatches of the Nars Orgasm Blush I think this pretty close to that but perhaps I will have to look at them properly together but from looking as some pictures they look pretty much the same. So for now this would be a good dupe (and perhaps an excuse to splerge on a Nars blush *wink*) This is a nice warm peach toned blush with gold shimmer, not sure about how this will look on me yet but I guess we have to see. 

4- 002 Orange County Girl this one is a Cream Blush and I would say that it is basically a cream version of You Are My Sunshine blush only a lot less shimmer and a cream. So the way I look at it is not ''oh well thats basically the same'' I look at it as ''well if I don't like that one I can use this one instead due to the less shimmer and I love a good cream blush'' plus it was £1.99 I will not complain. 

My first thoughts on these blush's they are really soft and creamy but the powders are a little powdery, in the sense that when if I swirl my brush in there, then there will be a lot of fall out product(?) is that the phrase, fall out? It is just a little messy and a little excess powder left is what I am trying to say. I actually like the packaging of all the Dainty Doll products as they are a matte black, like the old Mac shadow palettes. I like that. All of these costing £1.99 each.

Next up is 2 of the It's A Kinda Magic Concealer Pens and for some reason I also received an extra 2 which aren't on the little paper thing I got inside my package, but again I'm not complaining. 

004 is a green corrector which is good for correcting any redness on the face like around any spots you may have. It is a clicky pen and the product comes out at the the top through the brush, like all the other pen applicators. 

003 is far to light for me but it also has a slight orange tinge to it as it is drying, so I will definitely be giving this a good trial. Nicola says that these are full coverage however they are quite thin and light with one swipe.

I also ordered the Eyeliner Pencil in I'm So Pretty which is a nice brown and I think this will look quite nice with my blue eyes. I'm thinking of this worked into my upper lash line and lower lash line too. I really like this look at the moment. I also got an extra one of these in my package as well so thank you Fragrance Direct for those, even if they were an accident. 
So thats it for Dainty Doll products I seriously suggest getting over to Fragrance Direct while stock lasts in their clearance sale.

Also in their clearance sale I picked up the Jemma Kidd Front Cover Touch Up Concealer Pen in 01 Fair. Not sure why I needed another one but hey this one was £2.99 so yeah also saving a lot of money here too. This is far too light for me, but sometimes I like to have the Kim Kardashian effect under my eyes mainly on a night out I like it. I've also heard good things about Jemma Kidd Products so this was a good way to get my Jemma Kidd game going. 

Lastly I got the Calvin Klein Delicious Truth Lipstick in Illusion which is a really pale, barbie pink and it is sheer so it looks super pretty on the lips. Kissable lips achieved. This was also £1.99 and they have other Calvin Klein products which, after my ''holiday'', I will probably go back and purchase if you guys haven't already gone and got them yourself ;) (kidding) 

I hope you like this haul I'm so happy with the things I purchased and seriously get your butts to the website and get yourself something while stocks last because you are saving sooooo much money I think I saved at least £25-£30 I must have done. 



  1. I'm looking to try a colour corrector concealer. Does the green one work well once you apply a foundation over the top?

    Your latest follower, Lauren x

    1. Hi Lauren thank you for following :) I used the green concealer this morning and its quite thin, and blends out translucent. I used it over a pretty red spot and it did dull down the redness even though it blended into nothing basically. But I will keep trying and do a full review soon :)xx
