The new Dainty Doll Liquid Foundation Now That I've Found You, £22 (Boots) - FYI, so in demand is the pale-skinned range, the foundation already has a waiting list - comes in four shades and contains SPF 15 (great for fairer skins that need that extra protection). The foundations are all too pale for my skin so I've handed testing over to my sister, Natalie, who has often struggled to find a foundation pale enough to flatter her alabastre complexion on the high street.

"I, unlike the rest of the Maylor clan, have extremely pale skin - very Elizabeth I - which would've been all well and good in the 16th century but when you live in an era of bronze goddesses and fake tan, it's hard to find a liquid foundation that matches a pale skin tone. I've always struggled to wear foundation by high street brands without suffering from noticeable tidemarks around my jawline. I had heard of Nicola Roberts's Dainty Doll range, but up until now, had never tried it, and I must say I'm very impressed. I applied the 02 shade, which matched my skin perfectly. The foundation itself smells gorgeous, just like sun cream. The texture is silky smooth and it blends nicely into the skin - I didn't have to cake it on like I do with other foundations. Instead it covered my imperfections with just one layer. I love this foundation - it's my new make up essential. Thank you Nicola Roberts for embracing the paleness!" 5/5
