Hey lovelies, I hope you’re all warm and well!
These days it isn’t uncommon to see a lot of celeb’s launching their own makeup lines and collaborating with brands on cool new products for us to lustre after, being no exception, Dame Joan Collins launched her “Timeless Beauty” range in 2014 with the aim to not only inspire women, but to provide them with the tools to feel beautiful at any age. With that beautiful concept in mind, lets dive in to some of the Divine lipsticks!
The lipstick range was inspired by previous iconic characters Dame Joan has played throughout her ever so successful acting career and I love that she’s added that personal touch to the collection.
“Alexis” – A beautiful deep burgundy shade that is perfect for day or night
“Marilyn” – A gorgeous pinky terracotta shade that suits almost every skin tone.
The brand boasts of a high moisture level in the formula that is actively hydrating and luscious feeling on the lips without compromising on lasting power! When I first twisted the tube it was clear to see the rich colour and moisture in the bullet. I had high hopes for these as I tend to get quite dry lips, especially during the winter months.
Upon swatching, both the shades I have felt silky soft and super comfortable on my lips. The colour didn’t sink into any fine lines around my lips or bleed which is exactly what I look for in a lipstick! I did have to reapply after a few hours but that didn’t bother me too much. I absolutly loved the finish of these lipsticks, they had a slight glossy finish and Marilyn to have an ever so slight shimmer which was really pretty!
Packaging wise, I think these are very classic and classy looking. The gold colour is beautiful and the ribbed affect makes it easy to grip on application, but the tubes may look a tad familiar..Charlotte Tilbury dupe? There’s no denying that the packaging is incredibly similar to the Matte Revolution lipsticks from CT, even Joans logo is similar but do I think they’re dupes? Probably not, other than packaging they’re completely different in formula and finish.
I was super impressed with the performance of the lipsticks, I’m sure they’ll get loads of wear over the next few months! I love that Joan Collins is cruelty free too!
The Divine lip lipsticks retail for a respectable £18 which I think is pretty reasonable for such a good quality lipstick and you can browse the 16 different shades on the Joan Collins beauty website.
Have you tried anything from Joan Collins beauty?
