Bobbi Brown makes nod to 'Fifty Shades of Grey' with 'Come-Hither Shades'

Beauty brand Bobbi Brown has made a nod to the phenomenal success of erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey with the introduction of its Come-Hither Shades.

Penned by British writer E. L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey has become an international phenomenon. It tells the story of a 21-year-old English literature student named Anastasia Steele and her kinky billionaire lover Christian Grey.

While it is not an official tie-in with the books, no-one can ignore the Bobbi Brown collection's titillating tagline: "When did grey get so naughty?"

There are not 50 shades available in the Bobbi Brown line, but the collection includes a dark grey shadow called Steel Eye Shadow and a medium metallic grey called Rockstar Metallic Eye Shadow. Other products include a pure white shadow and a charcoal one.

The hype surrounding Fifty Shades has been unprecedented and it even inspired UK tailors Norton & Townsend to offer a menswear collection inspired by the novel's namesake Christian Grey.

Meanwhile, UK company Caroline Mickler Ltd, global licensing agent for Fifty Shades of Grey merchandise, has planned a line of beauty products, lingerie, jewelry, bedding and home furnishings inspired by the highly successful series -- primarily targeted at adult women.

The Bobbi Brown 'Come-Hither Shades' are available to buy now at: http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/products/9438/index.tmpl

    So my doctor prescribed two medications, including a synthetic thyroid hormone to replace what my body was having trouble making. It turns out that my story is actually quite common, especially since the risk for thyroid disorders tends to increase as you get older-and women are up to eight times more likely than men to develop one. I was also surprised to learn that having an underactive thyroid is the most common problem, but it can be tricky to diagnose. The gold standard for measuring …
