Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Compact Duo
Housed in a glamorous metallic gold compact, complete with mirror and sponge, this Pressed Powder & Lipstick Duo* by Joan Collins Timeless Beauty - stocked at M&S - is just calling to be instagrammed. It's hands-down the most beautiful compact I have ever owned; with its twenties-inspired design and luxurious feel it will be the envy of the ladies room.
Traditional powder compacts have fallen out of fashion, with most now featuring clunky, plastic packaging that you can already see shattering all over your nice, new clutch. So, when I received the press release for this beauty, I was intrigued on behalf of my oily T-zone. I wasn't disappointed. The Meticulous Pressed Powder is perfect for on-the-go touch ups for a variety of fair skin tones and doesn't create much fallout when use with a brush. Though, I would advise using a light hand if you suffer from acne or dry skin as it can sometimes emphasise imperfections.
Though, as usual, my favourite has to be the lipstick. The Tilbury-esque Divine Lips in Katrina is a hydrating and creamy lipstick in a nude pink/brown that is perfect for everyday wear. Like the pressed powder, it would suit a wide range of fair skin tones as it can be lightly applied for a rosy sheen or layered for a more pigmented look.
Overall, I love this Pressed Powder & Lipstick Duo* by Joan Collins Timeless Beauty and was pleasantly surprised when I saw the price tag! Though it's not something I would buy for myself - I prefer to pick up both products separately - it would make a beautiful gift. Perhaps for someone that is always on the go?
