After working with Joan Collin’s beauty brand, timeless beauty earlier on in the year and really enjoying the compact duo they gifted me for review; I jumped at the chance to try out some other products by the brand too.

I was very kindly sent two of her Divine Lips, lipsticks in the shade Evelyn and Suzy Starr (fun fact I was originally going to be named Suzy!). Two beautiful shades perfect for Spring and Summer. I’m not the best at replenishing my lipstick collection for the different seasons but with this opportunity it gave me the chance to try out some shades I wouldn’t have necessarily picked up myself.

If you would like to read a little bit more about the brand you can head over to my first blog post with them HERE where I covered a lot more or alternatively click HERE to visit their site. Ontoooooo the lipsticks!

SUZY STARR | £18.00

“A modern summery coral shade to bring a splash of warmth to your day and a pop of colour to your lips. This lipstick looks fantastic with or without a tan.”

I love this shade so much as like it suggest it looks fantastic with (and without) a tan. It suits my skin tone really well and I’m looking forward to wearing this out more during the summer days. It’s slightly more coral toned than the Evelyn shade that’s also branded as a coral but if you look at the swatches below you can definitely tell that neither of them are really the “coral” you imagine. This shade is slightly darker though and closer to that coral shade than the shade Evelyn is.

EVELYN | £18.00

“A fresh coral in a cream finish. This shade is fun, energetic and uplifting. It’s a great shade for blondes, redheads and summer.”

I definitely agree that the shade is fun, energetic and uplifting but also must add that this shade is not only great for blondes, redheads and summer… it’s also great for brunettes like me too! To brand it as a coral shade is something I wouldn’t go as far as saying, its more of a hot pink. Not a favourite shade of mine but one I’d definitely try and work with.


The lipsticks that Joan Collin’s has created are designed to be a “skincare” product as well by improving the hydration levels in the lips after 30 days worth of wear. The lipsticks are extremely hydrating and comfortable, I can’t deny that. They’re a little bit more sheer than I first imagined but that’s not much of a problem for me.

Once again I’ll talk about the packaging, its absolutely beautiful, so luxurious and something I 100% want to pull out of my bag on a girls night out to brag about. It’s extremely similar to another brand, again something I’ve already spoke about in my previous blog post here.  I do personally think that the £18.00 price tag for each lipstick is slightly on the higher end scale of things and not a price I would pay for an everyday lipstick but after taking in consideration the quality of the product itself, the packaging and the name behind the brand I can totally understand why it’s price marked at this.

I’ve already chosen which shades my favourite, give it a guess in the comments and tell me whats yours!

Were also just over half way through blogging every day in May and I hope you’re all lovinggggg my everyday posts (spam much?)… I promise I’ll give ya’ a break soon.

Lots of Love, Debra-Bow xxx

    These colours look beautiful! I am looking for a summery red and this one would be perfect. They do look really high-end too, I absolutely love packaging.

  • Amy Eade

    The packaging of these is gorge! It’s great to have a shade that you can wear with and without a tan – although I never tan so it’s not a problem for me haha!

  • I absolutely love the packaging of these lipsticks, they’re gorgeous! I received both of these in the post and I much preferred the red.

  • Again, Joan knocks it out of the park with her packaging! I remember being totally in love with the packaging in the last set of her products that you reviewed and these are no exception! I love the finish of these shades, Evelyn is definitely my favourite of the colours! I’m not sure if I’d shell out £18 but these certainly are beautiful products!

  • I haven’t heard of this brand before, but the packaging is amazing – yes, it’s very similar to another brand, but more gold rather than rose gold 😉 Anyway, Suzy Starr would look absolutely gorgeous on you, I can imagine!

  • Sian…

    I’ve only heard of Joan Collins beauty stuff through reading blogs like yours! I must admit, I can’t decide which shade of lipstick I prefer as they’re both gorgeous! Still obsessed with this
    packaging too!

  • Oh I love both of these lipsticks, but Suzy Starr in particular is beautiful. And I agree, Evelyn is definitely more of a hot pink than a coral.
