Joan Collins Timeless Beauty

 If you are a fan of luxury makeup, you will absolutely love the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Makeup Line. The packaging is breathtakingly beautiful and the formulas are lovely too. I have been obsessed with the small selection of products I received to try out and I now have far to many Joan Collins gems on my wish list.

My favourite is definitely the Summer Kiss Compact Duo* (£29.50). How stunning does it look? It consists of a subtle bronzing powder to suit all skin tones and a luxury Divine Lips Lipstick. You can pick from two lip colours, depending on your taste. I have Marilyn, which is a gorgeous medium pink. The formula of the bronzer is a dream to apply and blend and the lipstick glides on beautifully, providing a gorgeous colour and long lasting hydration. You also get a little brush with the duo, but I am not sure where to keep it, as there is no space for it inside, unless you let it sit directly on top of the bronzer. I just keep it in my makeup bag, as I like using it for contouring.

If you love a bronze smokey eye, the Eyeshadow Quad in Moody Browns & Gold*(£25.00) will be a perfect choice for you. Again, it comes in the most beautiful packaging and the product itself is really good. I find the shadows easy to apply and blend and long lasting. The matte browns and a light beige are ideal for a  classic, neutral look and if you want to add a bit sparkle, simply pop some of the shimmery gold onto your lids. I adore it and I have been using it as a highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones as well.

The last item I chose from the collection is the Frame Line Eye Liner*(£20.00). As a liquid liner addict, I was dying to add this beaut to my makeup bag. The formula is easy to work with, smooth, super pigmented and I am not disappointed with it. The brush gives me a lot of control and I can create a precise line with it in no time. Perfect!

Now let the photos do the rest of the talking. I couldn't stop photographing the products, so please forgive me (and enjoy) this photo heavy feature :) I am IN LOVE!

  9. The whole range from Joan is simply FABULOUS......another good word to describe it is...Devine!! I have four lipsticks and they are all such amazing quality. The pigment is INTENSE but they are not drying and do not bleed into lip edges. Fade is uniform, and across the whole lip are. Try Joan's lip gloss in PEARL (a transparent pink with mica glitter - so fine - particles, and the matching nail varnish is a dream. I'm collecting more, as I write.
