Fragrance Direct Haul: Dainty Doll Cosmetics

Last weekend I was a bit bored and thought I'd have a look on the Fragrance Direct website. I hadn't bought anything from there before but I'd often read about bloggers getting really cheap Essie nail polish so I thought it was worth a look.




As soon as I got on to the website I saw a big advert saying they had up to 80% off Dainty Doll cosmetics. Although I didn't have a great experience with their foundation or concealer I had still been interested in trying some of their other products, I just didn't fancy paying their prices!


Dainty Doll Cream Blusher: 001 Paper Roses, 002 Orange County Girl, 003 Billion Dollar Babies



To my delight, lots of the products I was interested in were only £1.99 instead of being around the £13.50 mark. I went super crazy and ended up with 11 items in my basket and the delivery was only £1.99 for second class delivery so I only spent a total of £23.88. This is such an amazing bargain as if I'd bought these in Boots, I would have spent almost £150! 


Dainty Doll Powder Blusher: 001 Hippy Shake, 002 My Girl, 003 Money Talks, 004 You Are My Sunshine


 
I placed my order on a Saturday and they were delivered the following Thursday which is fine as I only paid for second class delivery. I haven't tried any of the products but they all seem fine and I'm really happy with my purchases!


Dainty Doll Lipstick: 003 It's My Party, 006 Baby Love, 007 Stripped



I think my favourite items are the "It's My Party" lipstick, "My Girl" powder blusher and the "You Are My Sunshine" cream blusher. Once I've had a chance to use the products I'll probably feature them on my blog at some point. Let me know if there's anything in particular you would like to see!


Dainty Doll Concealer Pen in 002 It's A Kind Of Magic


Since I made my order, I did a little search on Twitter and noticed a lot of people have been snapping up these bargains so although there are some items left on the site, there isn't as much choice as last week. If you're interested in buying these, it might be worth checking back every so often as from what I gather the products do come back in stock.

Did you take advantage of these bargains? Let me know what you bought and if you've tried anything yet.

    1. I'm not sure what's going on with them to be honest! They were a 1/3 off in Boots for several weeks but they are back to full price now I think. Thanks Mel :) xx

  9. It's such a shame Dainty Doll is on it's way out, I love their makeup, but the perfect way to stock up on as much as possible before it's gone completely! Their foundations were available reduced to £14 on Boots but by the time I noticed my shade was already sold out. Fortunately I've discovered the Benefit one is just as good for my skin!

    1. Aww that's a shame. Maybe watch out on the site as they have came back in stock previously. Yeah I know, I didn't really mean to buy a lilac blusher, I got carried away! I'm looking forward to trying it though xx

  13. It was so fun to find your blog (while searching for product photos of those powder blushers), since I've ordered from Fragrance Direct couple of times -- and love their prices & products ! There isn't all the newest shades of Essie polishes, but those polishes are the reason why I ordered for the first time. Essies cost around 15 euros here, and on F.D site only 2 pounds (2,50 euros) !! :D

    Anyways, thought I'd say hello since happened to land on your pretty blog by accident ;)

    Indie by heart
