A Flawless Finish With Joan Collins Beauty*




If you're a regular reader here on my blog (thank you) you'll know that I have tried a few bits from Joan Collins Divine Beauty collection before. So when I was offered to try the foundation and concealer from her Divine Beauty line, I just couldn't turn it down.


What first caught my attention with these products was definitely the packaging. The foundation is in a lovely glass bottle with gold writing making it look even more appealing, because I'm clearly superficial. Although I did find that the pump on it was made of a rather cheap plastic that could possible snap pretty easily. The concealer was also in beautiful packaging but some reason doesn't actually have any description of the product on the actual product, which always comes in handy for when you no longer have the box.

As for the compact duo, I have spoken about it before briefly in one of my pasts posts, but I will go a bit more into detail here. The compact duo comes in a lovely little compact perfect to carry around with you, it includes a lovely red lipstick and a mirror. I have to say, I absolutely love the lipstick, it is an amazing red that I could get used to wearing every day.

Now to put them to the test,



Fade to Perfect Concealer £18

Actively hydrating - suitable for sensitive skin - anti-aging -dermatologically tested 

I wasn't too impressed by the concealer, I was expecting it to be a bit thicker than what it actually is. I applied it over my imperfections and blemishes but when I blended it in it didn't seem to cover much up due to it's rather thin consistency. I can't say I'd use this often unless I had a very small imperfection of maybe for under my eyes, but apart from that it didn't really cover much up.
Find it here.


First Base Foundation £25

Actively hydrating - suitable for sensitive skin - protective - anti-aging -dermatologically tested

Luckily the foundation is much thicker and has a better consistency than the concealer, meaning that although it didn't completely cover up my imperfections, it did a pretty good job. It was easy to blend in and was a great match to my ghost like skin, which I usually struggle with. A lot of foundations have a slight orange color to them and don't look quite right.

Compact Duo £16

Actively hydrating - suitable for sensitive skin - protective - anti-aging -dermatologically tested -SPF 15 

To finish off the look I used the Compact Duo, just to mattify the foundation and keep it in place, which is exactly what it did. Then I used the lovely red lipstick that comes with it to add a color pop to my lips, I love a good lipstick and it managed to stay on for most of the night.
Find it here.

I have to say I was impressed by these products as I didn't have an amazing experience with the lipsticks that I'd tried from this range. Have you tried Joan Collins divine Beauty range yet? If so, what did you think?
