Dainty Doll Storm in A Teacup

Dainty Doll Storm in a Tea Cup 2

As I have said many times, Dainty Doll is one of my favourite make up brands, particularly when it comes to cheeks and lips, so I was really excited to receive some products from their Summer Collection! Their Summer Collection contains everything you need to perfect your summer look, whether you like bright neons or a soft neutral look.

Dainty Doll Storm in a Tea Cup

The collection contains three beautiful nude lipsticks, and I was sent Storm in a Teacup to try. It is a soft pinky brown, and it doesn’t give me the dreaded ‘concealer lips’ effect. This is a great shade for pale girls that don’t have pale lips. My lips are quite dark and have a lot of mauve tones, so I need a nude that just warms them up, rather than blanking them out.

Like all the Dainty Doll Lipsticks I have tried this has a satin/matt finish, and lasts pretty well. This is one of my favourite lipstick formulas, they never slide around, and will stay where you put them, they are somewhere between a MAC Satin and Matt finish.


If you have pale to medium skin and can’t get beige nude shades like MAC Hue to work for you, this lipstick is definitely worth a look. For me it’s a nude that I don’t have to think about, I don’t have to worry that it’s washing me out, or that I need to crank up the eye make-up to make up for it. Just perfect!

Stay tuned for a FOTD including this lipstick, and some reviews on the cream blushers also released with this collection!

Dainty Doll can be found at Boots, where the lipsticks cost £12.50
