Joan Collins Divine Lips Lipstick - Amanda

There is one thing that I have not done for a while and that is picking up a red lipstick when I am out purchasing makeup. My lipstick stash has got to be 80% red lipsticks now and that is no exageration. So grabbing the chance to add another to the stash was an opportunity I was not going to turn down. Joan Collins is one of those brands that I have heard of, but not actually tried anything from. I was intrigued as to what the lipstck would actually be like as first impressions. There is one thing about this brand that made me quite excited to try out this product and that was the fact that it is a cruelty free product and Joan Collins is a 100% cruelty free brand, which is good news for all you vegans out there.

Upon opening up the product, I was greeted with a patterened and textured packaging with the initials 'JC' imprinted on top of the lipstick lid. This felt quite Charlotte Tilbury-esque, as I have already owned one of these lipsticks and it was eerily similar, packaging wise. The only difference was the bullet shape of the lipstick inside. Don't get me wrong, I know some brands can be quite similar and I am not claiming that it is a copied product, but I do feel that the lipstick could have been made a lot more original and individual to the brand itself. But that being said, it does have a very luxurious and sophisticated look to the product.

The lipstick is very rich in colour and quite bold on initial application which can still be buildable, depending on what look you are going for. This is one of those lipsticks that is for those bold lip lovers out there. The finish is not quite matte, it is matte with a very nourishing feel, finish and quite moisturising on the lips with a slightly sheen to it. It glides onto my lips like a dream and I can apply it with ease to the shape of my lips. I feel this applies a lot better when there is a base on the lips and makes the colour pop. It is most definitely suited to most skin tones, I am very fair skinned and I find it does not wash me out at all.

The Joan Collins Divine Lips Lipstick in Amanda* is priced at £18.00 per lipstick, which to me is not a bad price tag, for the quality and finish of the lipstick. It is a lipstick I will be using more often of and will be creating more makeup looks to go with it. I would probably try more of this makeup range, if the lipstick is anything to go by.
