It's no secret that I'm a huge Joan Collins beauty fan, I've got quite a collection of her products now all of which I'm pretty obsessed with - especially her lippies, if you haven't tried them before you definitely need too, their lush. Any who.... enough about lippies, today I'm talking all about achieving a flawless base with Joan Collins First Base Foundation and Fade To Perfect Concealer.
The Joan Collins First Base Foundation* claims to be skincare in a foundation, offering a smooth, flawless complexion with a radiant, natural finish. It contains Re-Age Complex which charges the skin with youthful energy to help increase collagen levels as well as Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and fill in fine lines, sounds pretty epic right? The formula of the foundation itself is gorgeous and I've been absolutely loving it so far, it has medium coverage that can easily be built up if needed, it smoothes over pores and fine lines whilst still feeling super lightweight and comfortable on the skin, it has a natural finish with a youthful glow that never looks heavy or cakey and I've not experienced any clinging to my dry patches either. The lasting power is pretty good on me, I get a good 8-9 hours worth or wear until I start noticing some slight wear on my chin area and it never goes oily, tacky or greasy through the day either. Also can we just appreciate how gorgeous the packaging is, the frosted glass bottle and gold accents look so sleek and chic, I love it!
The Joan Collins Fade To Perfect Concealer* is said to be Dame Joan's magic wand, again it combines skincare with concealer, claiming to reduce dark circles, soothe irritation and calm puffiness around the eyes. What I love about this concealer is that it's super brightening, I do have the fairest shade 'Fair' which probably helps but I LOVE a bright under eye and this certainly does the trick, the light reflecting particles makes my eyes appear more awake and lifted around and not so drab and dull in the mornings . The concealer has a lovely creamy texture that's super easy to work with and blend, in terms of coverage I'd say it's medium, It's not as heavy duty as I'd like but it definitely has a certain amount of coverage there to tackle my dark under eyes.
Overall I've really been enjoying this duo, the foundation is my new favourite, it literally ticks all the boxes for me and I feel like all skin types could easily wear this beauty! The concealer is also fabulous for brightening up my eye area, and the formula is absolutely lovely! These two wont be leaving my makeup bag any time soon I can assure you!
