Joan Collins Compact Duo Review

Hey beaut's!

You may have seen that back in April I tried out two of Joan Collins Divine Lips lipsticks and absolutely loved them, not only was the formula lush but the shades and the packaging where EVERYTHING and it definitely made me want to try more from Joan's makeup range. 
With the festival and holiday season coming up I thought it would be the perfect time to try  out the Joan Collins Compact Duo* - this is a 3-in-1 compact contains the Meticulous Pressed Powder and mini powder puff, a Divine Lips Lipstick in your chosen shade and the luxurious gold packaging comes complete with a well sized mirror within the flip up lid. As I just said before you do get to choose your own shade of lipstick when purchasing this compact, I love this because your not stuck with any ole shade of lipstick you might not like, also if you have other Divine Lips lipsticks in your collection they will also fit within the compact meaning you can switch between shades depending what shade you go for each day, genius!
The shade of lipstick I got within my compact is Crystal, this a the perfect, true red shade which I think would suit most complexions. As for the's stunning! To be honest I knew I'd love the formula because I love my other two lippies from Joan Collins, Crystal is so rich in pigmentation and completely opaque after one swipe, its super creamy and moisturising which is down to the added hyaluronic acid which really nourishes my lips. The lasting power is really good too considering it a creamy formula with a somewhat glossy sheen finish, however once the sheen has completely worn off I am left with slight stain on my lips by I don't mind that at all. The Meticulous Pressed Powder within the palette is perfect for any of those on the go touch ups, it instantly reduces shine and mattes down any areas that are more oily than others without feeling/looking heavy or cakey, it actually feel super silky smooth on the skin too which is nice.
Overall I bloody love this compact and the concept is brilliant too, if your looking for a good quality, travel friendly lippie and powder duo this holiday or festival season then I cant recommend this Joan Collins offering enough!

You can find the Joan Collins Compact Duo with and lipstick shade of your choice for £34.00 HERE or you can grab the compact by itself with just the Meticulous Pressed Powder within it for £16.00 HERE.
