A Must Have Compact From Joan Collins Timeless Beauty

Summer may be (pretty much) over now but that doesn't mean you can't use the gorgeous Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Summer Kiss Compact* RRP £16. Containing a pretty, lightweight, shimmery bronzer, a mini brush and a mirror, it's just stunning it also has an empty space for a Divine Lipstick (which you can buy separately). I must say the packaging is very classic looking and I think it looks similar to Charlotte Tilbury too, which is fine by me! The lid is also magnetic which is great so you know it isn't going to undo itself whilst in your makeup bag if travelling.

I have tried Joan Collins Timeless Beauty makeup before as I did review the Lash Grow Treatment earlier this year and I also picked up a gorgeous Divine Lipstick which I somehow lost in my house and I'm yet to find but I know it's somewhere in the house (lol). Obviously, if you've been reading my blog for a while then you'll know I'm more of a budget beauty kind of girl and JCTB is more of an high-end brand but from the products I've tried already, I would definitely say they are worth their price if they are in your price range or fancy treating yourself or someone else. I also really like the fact that they are cruelty-free too.

he main part of the compact is the slightly-shimmery bronzer which also helps protect your skin from potential sun damage the bronzer has a triple action skin defense effect - SPF15, an antioxidant complex with Vitamins A, C, E, and Q10. 

When I opened the compact I did think the bronzer would be a little too dark for me. But after swatching and trying it out, it's actually not dark for my skin at all (it does say on the packaging that it'll suit most skin tones). The bronzer gives a light coverage which is easy to build but I personally prefer more of a natural looking of bronzer because I think it looks too obvious if I put tons on my pale skin, so this works well for me. It is slightly warm for my skin tone but I can definitely get away with using it. It gives a lovely subtle healthy glow and I really like it.

I also received a Divine Lipstick RRP £18* in the shade Melanie which is a gorgeous Pink-Purple shade and like the Bronzer, it contains a slight shimmer. It's quite a glossy looking lipstick and it's perfect for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons. It also protects and hydrates your lips and fills in fine lines. It's a lovely wearable shade and I can't wait to wear it more with my Autumn/Winter makeup looks.


Overall I love these products, once again Joan Collins Timeless Beauty has done it again. My go-to bronzer is usually the Honey Bronzer from The Body Shop which is £14 so for just £2 more you can the gorgeous compact with the bronzer, along with a cute little brush too. The Divine Lipstick - Melanie is definitely going to get a lot of wear during the upcoming months so I'm sure you'll be seeing me wearing it and also see it in blog posts coming up because the packaging is just stunning.

If you're interested in picking up the compact yourself then you can find it at QVC, M&S and also Urban Retreat and you can also browse the Joan Collins website here.

  1. Joan Collins-Timeless beauty is personally my favorite brand.I'm more of a quality over quantity type of person and the best thing about this compact powder is that it has both quality and quantity. So you get to experience the best of both worlds.The compact powder is a 'can't be without'product.
