The Beauty Speeddate is a fun concept in which the Dutch press is introduced to different brands in five minute dates. After five minutes, a buzzer went off and our visitors went to the next table. We had a morning filled with short conversations in which the press got acquainted to the new invisibobble Beauty Collection and the beautyblender Xmas collection.

The invisibobble Beauty Collection contains four amazing colours inspired on your favourite beauty products and is available at a.o. ICI PARIS XL. The beautyblender Christmas Collection consists of three different sets and is sold at a.o. Douglas and ICI PARIS XL.

NEW: invisibobble Circus Collection

We want to invite you to meet the newest limited edition invisibobble collection: The Circus Collection. Just in time to brighten up your summer whilst keeping your hair look good at all festivals.

Join us for an extraordinary kind of spectacle: Welcome to the invisibobble circus. But what makes it so special? Colorful creatures – big and small – in four colors bring a breathtaking show to stage. 'Bad Hair Day? Irrelephant!' With this violet blue color your hair always looks good enough to enter each and every stage. Or go for the mint green version, this color is 'Hawkwardly Good Looking' and so are you! For true pink lovers we present the girly 'Cattitude Is Everything!' Rather something neutral? 'You’re Pawesome!' – the audience is thrilled to meet this beautiful, white color.

 

So please put your hands together for the new invisibobble Circus Collection. Its metallic colors enter the stage right in time for summer and the festival-season.

And the best part: As of now, all limited collections come as ORIGINAL, NANO and POWER so you do not have to miss trendy colors during your work-out or in your updo. Both the ORIGINAL and POWER give your hair an extra strong grip and the NANO is the perfect updo-tool. Furthermore, all three will not soak or tangle in wet hair.  

Extra benefit: In case the invisibobble begins to lose shape, pour hot water over it – this will let it shrink to its original size.
