Dolly Parton to Launch Makeup Line

Beauty Byte: Dolly Parton Makes a Makeup Plan

Country superstar Dolly Parton has a busy 2008 planned. Not only is she writing the score for a Broadway rendition of her 1980 movie 9 to 5, but she's also working on a television show for children and an autobiographical musical. Now she's hoping to launch a cosmetics line of her own.

Dolly told Billboard Magazine:

I want my own cosmetics line. When I first came [to Nashville] I really was the backwoods Barbie. Too much makeup, too much hair, the big boobs, country girl straight out of the mountains. It’s hard to take somebody looking like that serious, I guess, so I had to work double hard to prove myself.

Dolly has famously said, "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap." I kinda love her for poking fun at her over-the-top appearance, and because she's so sweet (and a philanthropist!) I could imagine checking out one of her lipsticks for fun. Would you?

I'd definitely buy at least one of Dolly's lipsticks! I'm so glad she's starting her own line. In the early 90s she had a small run, but it didn't last long at all.
Yes, but only because I adore Dolly!!!

I can't imagine liking any of her products. I like subtle color on my face.

I find her weirdly compelling, but the idea of a Dolly cosmetics line seems almost as bad to me as the Amy Winehouse makeup line idea. I wouldn't want to look like her.

I dunno, it all depends on the lipstick. But Dolly Parton = LEGEND.

I would totally buy a lipstick. I adore Dolly. She'll probably make some generic shades so there is a choice fore everyone. She's a savvy business woman.

I also love her, she is always so cheerful and cute, although she went OTT with plastic surgery and now looks freaky. I would probably get something from her makeup line if it looked good to me, but I would not spend more than $10 on it.

I really like Dolly, too, but I wouldn't buy her make-up. I don't wear make-up.
