Playboy Beauty Line of Cosmetics Introduced

 

Playboy Enterprises is counting on its new licensing cosmetics business to off-set lackluster magazine sales. Little bunny-eared tubes of makeup, sporting names like "Tie Me to the Bedpost" and "In the Mood," will be available at upscale retailers.

"The bulls on the stock have been emphasizing the licensing business as opposed to the core publishing business," said stock analyst David Miller, and he says that investors "hate the publishing business because it's a drag."

Playboy's publishing business generated 32 percent of sales but has been losing money for the last three quarters. Licensing accounted for just 8.2 percent of sales, but 26.7 percent of the company's operating profit during the same time period.

  great  
 
maybe if their models were a little more diverse than hitlers wet dream their sales wouldnt be so bad. i wonder if their cosmetics line will reflect the typical playboy model.

dyes to make your hair any shade of bleached-blonde you can imagine, tanning lotions to make your skin a healthy orange, and your very own airbrush so your breasts can look just as fake as they did when you first got your implants.

  huh? how is hitler even associated w/playboy?!  
 
It seems like EVERY topic recently has turned into
some type of Hitler comparison.

Damn...Hitler has nothing to do w/this cosmetic
line. Playboy females don't look like Hitler's dreams.
The last one I viewed had some hot girls w/red hair,
some nice brunetts, some green eyes, black skin, I
think I saw a latina...

Can we leave Hitler out of this topic at least?

  Omg...  
 
Wow! Playboy must be desperate for money! "Turn your wife into a porn star!" Yes! She'll go for that one.

  the problem with playboy  
 
The thing i dislike abut playboy is the unrealistic standard of beauty that they always select for models. If I am going to a read porno mag I'd like to see natural diverse women...not the same old airbrushed clone. I just don't think pushing a standard of beauty is really the way to go.

i made a refernce to hitler as a joke that playboy creates a euro-centric standard of beauty which excludes the majority of women in the world. no, i don't think hefner is a nazi, or that hitler will be next months centerfold. i'm merely stating that the blonde hair, fake boobs stereotype is the most common type of woman in playboy. it's outdated, unrealistic, and unappealing to the majority of men who prefer a bit more diversity.

"The last one I viewed had some hot girls w/red hair,
some nice brunetts, some green eyes, black skin, I
think I saw a latina..."

so you mean it had non-blonde white women, and you even spotted one or two non-white models? wow! i take back everything. playboy truly is diverse for including a token minority. c'mon, it's common knowledge that hugh prefers fake blondes, and his magazine reflects his taste. times have changed and playboy hasn't.
