Joan Collins Timeless Beauty - Compact Duo Summer Kiss

Thursday, 19 October 2017
I love to try new brands that I have never tried before, so when I received a summer compact from the Joan Collins timeless beauty range I couldn't wait to have a play with it.

The first thing I noticed was the packaging... it is truly stunning with a shiny gold front and a little lipstick peeking threw which instantly reminded me on the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick packaging. The compact is made to show the lipstick but close over it so the lipstick doesn't fall out. I loved this as I have had other compact duos and I always lose the lippy.

The Joan Collins compact duos come in two different shades, there is a natural pressed powder and a bronzing powder. When I opened the compact I had received the bronzing powder. I was a little worried as I am so pale a lot of bronzers look really muddy and dirty on my skin, but when I tried it out and swatched it, I had nothing to worry about as it is a nice subtle buildable bronze.


Then onto the lipstick... I have to say the packaging on the lipstick is so luxurious, it feels like a really expensive high end brand and the actual colour of the lippy is to die for! The lipstick is in shade Marilyn and is a gorgeous coral red with a glossy finish. When I tried the lipstick out it glides on to the lips like butter. The colour payoff is unbelievable with just one swipe my lips were covered, so I didn't need to apply lots of product. The lipstick feels soft and moisturising on the lips and I was blown away with the staying power! It lasted for over 5 hours and that was with me eating and drinking!

The First picture is the lipstick and bronzer with flash and the second picture is without flash.

 
 
I have to admit the quality of the compact is exquisite it is soo sturdy and pretty, it honestly looks a lot more expensive than what it actually is! The compact retails at only £16.00 and can be purchased at M&S, Joan Collins online, QVC and Urban Retreat.

Lots of Love...

  1. Once you've taken in the unique décor at this place, the hardest part is to decide whether to go upstairs or downstairs. With a large open floor plan, you'll find bars on both levels of NYC venues, and someone will always come by to serve you matter where you decide to hang out.
