Timeless Beauty was originally developed with more mature women in mind, but the classic packaging and range of shades means it’s pretty accessible to all ages. The vintage inspired gold packaging looks really expensive and is definitely something you wouldn't mind getting out of your handbag for a cheeky top up on the tube.

Inside the range, you’ll find lipsticks, blushers, nail polishes ad powder compacts, plus a gorgeous lipstick/powder duo that’s perfect for top ups when you’re out and about. All of the shades have been named after Joan Collins characters from some of her famous shows, giving you the chance to be Alexis for a few hours (woo!).
I’ve been testing out a couple of the products and have to say, I’ve been impressed. The Velvet Blusher* is very finely milled and quite light in terms of pigmentation, but lasts all day and has a very subtle shimmer with no sparkly effect. It comes with its own applicator brush which I’d normally advocate just throwing away, but this one is pretty good quality and will perform well if you need a top up throughout the day.
My favourite product has to be the Paparazzi Ready Lip and Powder Compact Duo*. Inside, you find a full sized lipstick (you choose the shade, mine is called Fontaine), and a neutral face powder with applicator puff. The lipstick is really creamy and leaves lips feeling hydrated, but without a greasy texture. The powder is also finely milled and while not translucent, will work for most light to medium skin tones.
Now, the price point is definitely high end – blushers are just over £20 and the duo is almost £30, but I think they’re worth a little splurge.
