Citroen DS3 Benefit Cosmetics Editions Launched

Two models are available to buy now in the UK, with prices starting at £14,795. The line-up is based on the existing 'DSign' and 'DStyle' trim levels for the Citroen DS3.

A third special edition model for the Benefit Cosmetics-inspired range will be revealed later this year during the summer.

Citroen first announced collaboration with Benefit Cosmetics back during last December when a special one-off DS3 concept was revealed called 'DS3 by Benefit'.

The two companies have since decided to expand beyond this single creation to offer something unique to a selection of Britain's car buyers.

The Marketing Director for Citroen UK, Jules Tilstone, explained: "Following the overwhelming response to our DS3 by Benefit concept that we showcased last year, we're delighted to be launching these road-ready special editions."

In a retailing first Citroen and Benefit have also worked with online fashion retailer, ASOS, to create the first online car boutique. This can be accessed now on a dedicated section of the ASOS website at www.asos.com/citroen.
