Beauty News: Stila Pulls Out Of Japan

We were discussing Stila’s demise in Europe and Asia a few weeks ago and it’s finally confirmed that Stila is now out of Japan as well!

My good friend Iris reports that Stila will be completely pulled from Japan by the end of August. I’m shocked to hear this as Stila does very well in Asian countries. It’s quite sad!

The good news is Stila is working on gaining ground again in the cosmetic world so just be patient and I’m sure you’ll see Stila back in your country again soon!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    A friend of mine works in the cosmetic companies tells me that Japan is the toughest market in the world, because their consumers are the most demanding and particular.

    Therefore, if a cosmetic brand makes it in Japan, it pretty much translates to it being able to make it anywhere in the world, and if it doesn’t cut it for Japan?…….well that’s saying something about their products too. = P

      hi greenpea

      quite true plus the Japanese market is heavily saturated with skincare and cosmetics. For the most part though Stila was having some financial problems and recently faced bankruptcy but was pulled up and out. Thankfully it’s well on it’s way to it’s former glory and I’m sure it’ll be available within Asian again soon especially considering how incredibly popular it is in Asian countries 😀
