There are going to be some deeply unhappy US beauty girls who won’t be able to get their Shu Uemura fix since L’Oreal made the decision to pull their US operations. The official statement goes: “Going forward, we decided that L’Oreal USA would be better served by focusing on our other strategic luxury brands like Lancôme, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Kiehl’s, and fragrances,” says president of L’Oreal USA’s luxury division, Carol Hamilton, in a typical corporate non-statement. Even though I know it already, seeing just how many luxury brands belong to L’Oreal is still an eye-opener. Shu will still be available on-line though to US customers.
