Beauty brands say "Hi Barbie" with new collaborative collections
With the release of Warner Bros’ highly-anticipated Barbie movie approaching, many beauty brands have jumped on the all-pink, barbiecore trend to launch a variety of collaborative collections.
Launching in cinemas on 21 July, the new Barbie movie features a star-studded ensemble, including Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken.
To celebrate the upcoming release, TheIndustry.beauty has put together a round-up of the recent Barbie-themed launches from beauty brands in the UK.
NYX Professional Makeup
NYX Professional Makeup launched a limited-edition Barbie the Movie collection in partnership with Warner Bros, including a Barbie Butter Lip Gloss, Barbie Flip Phone Mirror, Barbie Jumbo Eye Pencil Kit and Barbie On The Go Cheek Palette, among other items.
It also opened a pop-up in London's Covent Garden last weekend, allowing visitors to trial and purchase the new makeup range, discover summer looks with makeup artists from NYX, and access various photo opportunities, such as a beauty hut photobooth.
Priced from £6.50 to £12, the range is available at NYX Professional Makeup.
Tangle Teaser expanded its Ultimate Detangler range with a new Totally Pink Barbie Brush, available in full and mini sizes.
Suitable for all hair types, the brush's two-tiered teeth work to detangle shower-fresh hair, amounting in less breakage. The longer, flexible teeth remove knots and reduce breakage, whilst the short teeth smooth for glossy, frizz-free hair.
Priced from £10.50 and £14, the range is available at Boots.
OPI has launched a new collection featuring exclusive shimmers, glitters, and crème nail polish shades inspired by the upcoming movie Barbie movie.

Priced at £14.90 each, the range is available at OPI.
