Recently Citroën have made available the DS 3 Cabrio DStyle by Benefit, the fourth DS 3 special edition designed in collaboration with Benefit Cosmetics, complete with a look a design influenced by Benefit’s favourite primer – Stay Flawless - that keeps foundation looking flawless for up to 15 hours.
Without planting a foot at all in the sexist camp, the special edition is quite obviously aimed at the female driver, complete with a folding fabric roof to take advantage of any summer sun, which can be opened or closed at motorway speeds.
From the outside, the Polar White body is as striking as it sounds right from the start and offset by a black fabric roof and Fuchsia Pink touches on the door mirrors and wheel centre caps. The Benefit logo badge features on the rear (in Fuchsia Pink) and on the ‘Shark Fin’ B-Pillars there is a ‘Gabbi’s Head’ logo and a Benefit badge on the rear, also in Fuchsia Pink (Is there a pattern emerging here?)
Inside the whole car is part of the ‘Stay Flawless’ theme with bespoke black velour floor mats with Fuchsia edging and an embroidered Fuchsia Benefit logo; gloss white trimmed dashboard, air vent surrounds and gear stick cap, a key fob with Gabbi’s Head on it with a Fuchsia Pink insert, and Benefit’s trademark ‘Stay Flawless’ black and white polka dot design on the upper part of the dashboard.
Powered by an energetic VTi 120 engine which comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox, the DS 3 Cabrio DStyle by Benefit isn’t without a little bit of oomph either; and the whole package is topped off with some additional equipment from the DStyle Plus range that includes Connecting Box (Bluetooth® system with USB connectivity), 17-inch ‘Bellone’ Black alloy wheelsand the City Signature pack complete with automatic digital air conditioning, automatic illumination of headlamps, automatic rain sensitive wipers, electrically heated and folding door mirrors, electrochrome rear view mirror, interior mood lighting and a front central armrest.
And as if the Pink touches aren’t enough for the owner, there is also the added touch of Benefit delivering a special Benefit Beauty Bag with the car that contains Benefit’s favourite makeup products, unsurprisingly including some ‘Stay Flawless’ primer.
