Joan Collins - Timeless beauty collection


When an Icon such as Joan collins releases a makeup line, you sit up and take notice. This iconic woman has seen hollywood through the golden era, plus know what wonder's makeup can achieve. So i jumped at the given the opportunity to review her new foundation and compact's.

About
Joan Collins Timeless Beauty is a new international luxury beauty brand, created by one of the most glamorous icons of our time.  It aims not just to inspire women, but to provide them with the tools to feel and be beautiful at any age.


Now finally, she has delved into her treasure trove of beauty knowledge to create a new line of beauty products with the aim of sharing her experience with us all and allow each woman to obtain what she dreams of: Timeless Beauty.

First base - Foundation 

Is skin care in a foundation. It creates a smooth, flawless complexion with a radiant, natural finish, whilst Re-AgeTM Complex charges the skin with youthful energy, to help increase collagen levels. Light on the skin with excellent adhesion. Includes Hyaluronic Acid & UV filters. Paraben free.

My thoughts :
First base is a light weight buildable coverage foundation. Application is easy (even when using your fingers), plus leaves good distribution of product. On my face my t-zone is my problem area and I deliberately did not apply primer to see how it fared on dry area's. Whilst it was most noticeable on the bridge of my nose, it did not cake or flake anywhere else. So with a primer and my usual exfoliator this foundation would be a good wearing, reliable addition. I had a bare face to see the areas that need building up. I would just need my usual a brightening around my tired eyes. I Also felt the foundation dries down to give a matte finish. Overall I really like this foundation for light to medium coverage and will be using this in the summer when my skin is normal with no dry areas.  

Powder & Lipstick duo

Pressed Powder and a Divine Lipstick together in a glamorous mirror compact. The perfect quick fix combination of skin responsive powder and a hydrating lipstick. Any Divine Lips lipstick will fit in the compact so the lipstick can be changed as needed.

"I love this duo. I can easily find 2 of my most important cosmetics without having to rummage at the bottom of my bag. I can touch up my face quickly with a pat of powder and sweep of lipstick. Perfect!"

My thought's:
I did give a light brush of the compact powder. The addition of powder did not make my skin look cakey nor cling to my dry areas. Its a light and finely milled powder that only is required for touch ups, i found using it once was sufficent. The divine lipstick was creamy and felt moisturising. The pigment was fantastic and even when drink and eating the colour was still left, it became's matte upon wearing and can be easily touched up. Its a beautiful colour and lovely lipstick, I really am in love with this formula. 


Have you tried any of the range ?What  would you try ?
