Say it Ain't So: Shu Uemura to Shutter Stateside Stores

My friend Shyema over at Beauty and the Feast reported this morning that cult Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura will be saying sayonara to the US market, closing all American doors within a matter of months. Products will remain available for purchase online, but where's a gal to turn when she needs a killer pair of false lashes on short notice for a last minute costume party/photoshoot/dress-up sesh? And what of their famed eyelash curler, a universal makeup bag staple? I suggest you start stockpiling now. 

Besides the aforementioned essentials, I've always coveted their hot red blush brush, $48. Now's the time.

  1. My heart is breaking...this can't be true...it just can't be true. *tear*

  2. that stinks! I went looking for a shu emura product at my sephora this weekend and couldn't find anything!

  3. @ Michelle: Get thee to the Fillmore St. outpost at once! Or is everything already gone?

    @jewelrywhore: I can't believe Sephora's out of everything already! I'm going to have to make a run on all the NYC shops and see what's left. Keep me posted if you find anything.
