Tissues at the ready, say bye bye to Pout

Pout.jpg
Come December, Pout Cosmetics will be no longer. One of our favourite British beauty brands has been bought out by Crysallis, and they've decided that the colour cosmetics business isn't a profitable one, as despite Pout Cosmetics selling well in the UK and Europe (with 10m worth of sales), sales of Pout Cosmetics were disappointing in the US.

Very sad news for a fun British brand, I'd suggest stocking up on your favourites now. The Pout brand will continue, but only bath and body products will be sold (boo).

That would explain the clearance sale at our Victoria's Secret a few months back. At the time, they claimed pout was merely going to be repackaged, that all of the old packaging had to go, but those lying bastards haven't restocked Pout merchandise for several months! And I just went to Sephora.com and Pout is now nowhere to be found! I can only hope Pout merchandise is still in the stores.
