Want to know my thoughts on the Dainty Doll Eyeshadow Base in 01 Frankie Girl?
What Dainty Doll say
Lay some good foundations with my new Eyeshadow Base which is perfect for camera-ready colour-correction and keeps your favourite Dainty Doll Eyeshadow crease-free and perfectly placed for hours. Dainty Doll Eyeshadow Base is designed especially to amplify the colour intensity of your eyeshadow.
I picked up the Dainty Doll Eyeshadow Base in 01 Frankie Girl from Discount UK in Newcastle for just 99p a couple of months back during a Discount UK haul.
The Dainty Doll Eyeshadow Base comes in simple yet pretty black compact packaging. It's secure and holds the product well so I can't complain.
When I first spotted this I was reminded of my trusty, much loved Benefit Lemon Aid and at just 99p, I thought I'd give the much more purse friendly Dainty Doll product a little try to see how it compared to one of my favourite products. I got the shade 01 Frankie Girl which is a pale yellow colour. Compared to Lemon Aid it's ever so slightly less yellow toned and overall more white but still pretty similar. In terms of consistency, it is quite hard in the pan and I found it took a little longer to warm up and soften compared to other bases I've tried but once melted a little it blended really well on my lids creating a good base for my shadow. Once my shadow was applied over the top I found it helped to brighten my look giving my shadow that nice pop that I love. As for wear, I found applying a thin layer to last around 8 hours before any form of creasing occurred. I did find that around the 5-6 hour mark my shadow began to fade but for 99p it's really not bad. I should also mention that I don't just use this product as an eyeshadow base as I often sport it alone as a corrective shade for when my eyes need a little pick me up as it really helps to make them appear brighter and more awake and less dull and tired.
- Effective packaging
- Helps shadows to appear nice and bright making them "pop"
- Helps to prolong wear time
- A little goes a long way
- Blends nicely into my pale skin tone without looking harsh or obvious
- Great as a corrective colour product to make eyes appear brighter and more awake
- Can take a little longer to soften compared to other bases I've tried
For 99p this is a pretty decent product. It is quite similar to Lemon Aid but it does differ in terms of shade and doesn't last quite as long but at a fraction of the price of the Benefit product, I'd highly recommend picking it up if you spot it out and about.
