Emulating the dazzling look of a pop star is easy with the help of products from the Britney Spears makeup line.
The Britney Spears Makeup Phenomenon
It wasn't long ago that she was known solely for her radio-friendly ditties. Now Britney Spears has a stronghold on the beauty world, too. Everything from fragrances to lip glosses, the Britney Spears makeup line is spunky, lighthearted and even a little bit glamorous. In other words, it's a lot like Miss Spears herself.
The Britney Spears makeup collection began with one product, the instant best-selling fragrance, Curious. The scent's success meant the inevitable growth of the line, and it was quickly followed up by another, called Fantasy. Since then, Britney Spears Beauty, licensed to Elizabeth Arden, Inc., has introduced a variety of products. They include the following:
Perfumes are the cornerstone of the Britney Spears beauty collection. Each fragrance is formulated to capture the essence of several fantasy-inspired themes, including romance, adventure and magic.
- Curious: The fragrance that started it all, Curious pays homage to Spears's home of Louisiana with notes including the state's official flower, magnolia, as well as golden Anjou pear, lotus flower, tuberose, star jasmine, pink cyclamen, vanilla-infused musk, sandalwood and blonde woods. Curious is crisp and breezy, with strong white floral notes touched by a hint of airiness.
- Fantasy: One glance at its bright pink, rhinestone-studded bottle is enough to draw anyone in. This romantic fragrance includes notes of lychee, quince, kiwi, cupcake accord, jasmine petals, white chocolate orchid, musk, orris root and woods. Revealing a unique balance of ripe fruits, sweet flowers and gourmand desserts, this scent is truly a fantasy for the fragrance connoisseur.
- In Control Curious: Sexy and strong, In Control Curious is a more grown-up fragrance than its predecessors. It boasts an eclectic blend of loquat fruit, midnight orchid, crème brûlée, black vanilla bean, tonka crystals, sugared sandalwood and signature musk. The result is a sweet, heady scent that is heavy on the vanilla and not for the faint of heart.
- Midnight Fantasy: This intriguing fragrance paints a seductive, sensuous picture of mystery and forbidden romance. Its magnetic spirit is captured by notes of black cherry, raspberry, plum, iris, night blooming orchid, freesia, vanilla, amber and musk. The deep amber and rich vanilla are interesting contrasts to the bright, bold fruits. The combination is both flirtatious and elegant, resulting in a scent truly made for the midnight hour.
Fans of Spears's fragrance collection will appreciate the concept behind her color cosmetics. Each product ties in with a particular scent.
