Payless Shoes... and Beauty?

Hey guys!

The new blog is on its way! Just finished the redesign this weekend. (I hope y'all like it!) Soon as I edit my next video, Highly Textured will be back in full effect! (Wheeeeee!)

In the meantime, I wanted to share this, which came across the newswires this morning... Payless (yes, the shoe company) is getting into the beauty business!

From the press release:

Payless ShoeSource, the retailer well-known for democratizing the latest fashion, design and ideas in footwear and accessories for all to enjoy, today announced an alliance with Maesa Group, recognized as the most comprehensive "Beauty-on-Demand" product resource, to create a collection of new beauty and body care products to be available exclusively in about 1,500 Payless ShoeSource stores this fall.

The forthcoming new products will include a range of body care and beauty items such as lotions, creams, butters and shower gels for body, hands and feet; fragrances and mists; color for eyes and lips; as well as nail polishes, among others. Like all Payless products, the new beauty merchandise will be available at a great price -- as low as $2.99 an item.

The products are slated to hit stores in September and will be sold under two brand names -- Zoe & Zace and Unforgettable Moments.

What do you think? Would you try out Payless beauty products? Shoes, handbags AND lipstick... all in one place?
