U.K.: COSi developed two new product lines at a series of workshops held for international brand owners.
COSi took inspiration from the fabrics and styles that will appear in mainstream fashion trends for 2007/08. New products from COSi are divided into two ranges, Curator and Urban Angel.
COSi’s Curator range for Fall/ Winter 2007 focuses on the concept of socio-economic trends, nostalgia and heritage, mimicking hard knits and felt textures. The color palette concentrates on rustic, country shades, subdued metallics and glowing ember reds associated with antique fabrics and linens. New products unveiled by COSi include a cotton satin blush with a soft mousse texture and silicone base for an easy and natural application, a soft matte lip sheer which is shiny until applied to the lips, a skin foundation with a velvet skin feel when dry and a butter balm lip smudge.
Completing the range, COSi’s new Daddy Longlegs mascara with a two part application combines a unique base coat liquid with a separate, cutting edge mascara filled with small fibers to lengthen and define lashes.
COSi’s Urban Angel range offers a harder edge, street look, which relies heavily on contrasts. Focusing on heavy, dark eyes with natural lip color, and vice versa, Urban Angel has an industrial color palette of raven, graphite and midnight shades contrasting with neon, electric blue and red patent high glosses.
Products include new Boot Shine eye shadow with its waxy texture, and the Urban Gothic textured mascara developed with extra body to give lashes a stunning and unique feathered appearance. A waterproof Graffiti eye paint with a 10-hour lasting effect, a Vine Electric lipgloss and a Split Stick for lips complete the product range.
