LIP WEEK: Dainty Doll Lipsticks

L-R 001, 002, 003, 006, 007, 008 £1.99 each from Fragrance Direct


This and 002 would have to be my favourite and most used out of the bunch. We all know I love a good red shade and this darker red shade fit so well into my collection. I usually opt for a brighter red but as I've been getting into my darker purple lipsticks, a dark red had to be added to the ever growing collection of lipsticks I've got. 


A beautiful bright red that works so well with my skin tone. I have quite a number of bright reds but this one is just as nice as the rest. I love the formulation of Dainty Doll lipsticks as they are so easy to apply and wear. 


A lovely bright pink. This one reminded me a little of Topshop's All About Me which is one of my favourite pink shades. It has a very moisturising formulation and although I don't often opt for a pink lipstick, I will definitely get a chance to use this. 


Now onto the nudes in the collection. This is more of a pink toned nude and is lovely. I don't usually opt for a nude lip and if I do I would usually go for MAC Shy Girl but I really want to give these a go more often. 


This one is more of a golden and yellow toned nude. It has a bit of shimmer in it and I would say it is a lot less wearable than the other shades. It doesn't really suit my skin tone well and I prefer lipstick mostly without shimmer. 


A pink brown toned nude, I do like this shade although it does have a little shimmer. More wearable than the previous shade although I cant see myself opting for this that often. Perhaps I should try out my nudes more often! 

L-R 001, 002, 003, 006, 007, 008 (Thanks to Callum, my boyfriend for donating his arm for swatch purposes, so helpful!)

I really like the Dainty Doll lipsticks along with all of the other products I have tried from them actually. Very affordable (£1.99 for a lipstick?!!) you really can't go wrong, hence why I ordered all of the shades they had in stock. I think I may have made around 3 orders when Dainty Doll first appeared on Fragrance Direct. They don't actually have it all in stock at the moment, but I would keep checking back as I always noticed that there was more on there each time I checked, hence the 3 orders in only a couple of weeks. 

What are your favourite Dainty Doll lipstick shades? 



  1. I really want to try these lipsticks to see what they're like, the first three are right up my street and £1.99 for them is brilliant.
    Hopefully FrangranceDirect will have them back in stock soon. :D

  2. I never like spending much on lipsticks (unless they're Mac) because I use so many different ones and lose them in bags all the time. I really like the Natural Collection lipsticks- I think they're the same price. I want to try these though... I quite like 008!


  3. I really like the look of 001, gotta love a good red.
    thankyou for the swatches!

  4. I bought a Dainty Doll lipstick from FD a while ago now and I adore it, it's my daily lippie. It's called In His Kiss and is 005, a really pretty coral-ish pink, a little frosted but not too much. But I love the look of the red, might be another cheeky purchase!

  5. Nr 6 lipstick is lovely :)

  6. I have a couple of these so far... I really would love more, as they're such gorgeous colours! Look how pigmented those swatches are xx

  7. I actually haven't heard of Dainty Doll before, does this make me hideously uncool? The shades are all lovely though, and who can argue with 1.99?!
