  1. Phyllis, do you know why Shu Uemura was pulled out from all U.S. stores? The makeup looks pretty and Shu Uemura is such a big brand that I don’t understand why they’re not selling it in the U.S.

  2. Hi Ladies, actually some products belonging to this line are still being sold in Nordstroms. I am not sure if all of them still carry Shu but I’ve read that you can find this particular line there if not all of Shu’s products.

  3. At least they will still sell items through their website. I’m sure a lot of people are happy that they will still be able to get the famous eyelash curler. :)
