materialism: Smashbox cosmetics leaving Japan

All products are 30% off.

I heard that J. Crew is also withdrawing from Japan; I should drop by.

Bloom Cosmetics withdrew from Japan last year.

there are other places, I'm sure, but the shop I know about is http://www.15minbiews.co.jp/biews/index.html
It's on the B1F of Hibiya Chanter http://www.toho.co.jp/chanter/floor/index.html
close to Ginza.
You should take a look, the stuff looks nice :)
Gee, I hope stila doesn't pull out of Japan... Annoying that brands are pulling out; I like easy access.

Estee Lauder Cosmetics sold the Stila brand to private equity group a year or two ago; those owners just sold it to another private equity firm. The company has been struggling for several years, so you might want to stock up while you can!
