It’s that time of year again, that all Doll 10 fans love….the QVCUK Todays Special Value time!! This means a collection of Doll 10 products at an incredible price for one day only whilst stocks last.
Regular readers of my blog know I am a huge Doll 10 fan and have been sinces its UK launch over 6 years ago. My skin loves it, my bank balance loves it, and my readers love it.
In the upcoming collection are six make up products that allow you to create a full face look in ten minutes or less.
Hydragel Foundation 60ml Supersize –
The Hydragel Foundation is a water based foundation containing the Hydragel formula which was released in the UK at the beginning of the 2016. This is an incredibly lightweight, yet full coverage foundation. I have been using this product for years and adore the way it feels and looks on my skin. So light and smooth whilst covering my pigmentation, redness and all round uneven skin tone. It really gives a flawless base, full coverage and wonderful brightness to the skin. A little really does go a long way. Containing high density pure pigments which are suspended in the gel formula, it gives a radiant finish. You will be surprised at how little of this product you actually need to achieve a flawless finish. I buff mine on using the Doll 10 foundation brush as it really gives an airbrushed look. Play around with it at first because I think you will be surprised at how little you need and you can then build in the areas that need more coverage if you feel you need it, or use your concealer. Don’t forget to also try different foundation brushes, a different level of coverage can be achieved depending on the brush. This is a lightweight, full coverage foundation, suitable for all skin types. Available currently in Fair, Light, Medium and Tan with Deep on the horizon imminently.
When I asked Doris Dalton for Shade tips here is what she said –
“Shade choices for the foundations are pretty easy.. The Fair shade is for ultra fair gals.. You always burn in the sun.. Think Nicole Kidman or Snow White .. It has a bit of a Pink undertone to it.. Light is the shade that I wear.. It’s a bit warmer and not as Pink. A blend between Pink and Yellow. It’s for girls that burn in the sun but then turn to tan..Medium is warmer then the Light definitely the most popular shade and… has yellow under tones..Tan is the richest colour for Olive skin tone complexions. The foundation and Concealer match each other.. Don’t forget that in the Summer your foundation tends to be a bit warmer then in the Autumn or Winter months. Even though you use SPF, you still get sun. I typically don’t change my foundation colour. If I notice that it appears a bit light because my skin has warmed in the summer, I usually sweep a small bit of bronzer on my face.. Hope that helps..”
Hydragel Concealer 12ml –
The perfect accompaniment to the Hydragel Foundation, this water based concealer is full coverage at its hydrating best! The Gel technology makes this a lightweight concealer, that gives a full coverage. It hydrates the skin beautifully and does not dry down or mattify an oilier skin. Perfect for concealing dark circles under the eyes as it does not dry cakey or crack. I wear this under my eyes all the time and never have a problem with it, however in warmer weather i always set my under eye concealer with just a touch of translucent powder.
I find it also works really well as an eye shadow primer because it evens out the colour of the eyelids and gives a smooth, neutral base to apply eye shadow. This concealer has so much coverage that is can even cover tattoos! If you are suffering from redness or dark circles under the eyes, like I do, then I am sure you will find the coverage amazing.
Hydralux Shadow Liner in shade Minx –
This was a new product to me and one I was eager to try. In lovely packaging in the trademark Doll 10 Nude/Pink, this is a handy shadow stick to have. With a precision point to enable you to line your eyes above or below your lash line, I find this also works well as a shadow all over the lid. This lovely smokey brown with flex of bronze and gold has a smooth consistency due to the Rice Bran wax which makes this easy to smudge and blend onto the eyes using just your finger. It has a long lasting formula too and doesn’t crease on the lids. A lovely product that is super quick to apply.
Illegal Eyes Mascara –
I just cant fault Doll 10 mascaras, they really are so good at adding curl and length to the lashes and this one does it by the bucket load. Containing Marula Oil and Vitamin B3 the lashes are nourished so as not to dry out or break and the mascara gives a lovely, even coat to the lashes without flaking. Rice Bran plumps the lashes and adds curl and volume and you are left with a wonderfully black mascara that gives amazing lashes with one coat and absolutely out of this world with two!!
Hydragel Cream Balm Blush in shade Vegas Nights –
Containing Hydra Gel technology, this beautifully creamy blush is perfect for anyone that does not like the feel of a powder on the skin. This is a light weight blush that also contains a hint of highlight, that will not disturb your make up as you tap it on or look too cakey. It gives a natural flush of colour that is easily buildable depending on the look you want to create. As someone with dry skin, I will always choose a liquid foundation and blush over anything else, it looks better on my skin than a powder and I prefer its natural look. This is stunning at highlighting the cheekbones.
Easy to apply, I just use my finger and gently tap it where I want it on my cheeks. No shimmer, no sparkle, not sticky, just a beautiful, silky, healthy natural flush of pink with a hit of glow. I even use these as a lip tint sometimes when I want a more natural make up look. Do not be afraid of the colour in the pan as they are more natural on the skin than they appear. If you are a darker skin tone, just have a play with it and build it up. Comes in a lovely, portable, mini compact with mirror included which I adore. These can also be applied with a beauty blender if you prefer.
Gel Lip Crayon in shade Barely Legal –
Not going to lie, I don’t like the name of this shade, however I do find the colour very pretty and bold. Super quick and easy thanks to the precision point, you can first line your lips with this bold pinky/mauve shade and then fill in.
This made in Italy formula combines the shine of a gloss with the comfort of a balm and the longevity of a lipstick. A really lovely colour that is perfect for this time of year.
I am not sure how this collection will be sent to you as it was not sent to me in the usual gift box style packaging, but I am sure regular Doll 10 fans will love this collection. A format of products that we are used to, make this the perfect top up of your make up stash or a great introduction to the brand.
This collection will be available as a Todays Special Value for one day only or whilst stocks last for around £40.00 (to be confirmed) you can purchase it HERE when it becomes available on 27th September 2018. Dolled up in 10 minutes or less!
