    Normally, when a make up brand goes to an international location, they attempt to be "a part" of a store. It saves a lot of trouble with set up and such. But that´s not very easy to do in Brazil, especially Rio. Not to mention most of the boxes of product have 1/4 stolen by people in the mail/federal police system. That means the company either has to bump up prices or send privately, ie. bump up prices. It´s why there´s such a big mark up down here.

    Think Brazil may be a great test market for the freestanding stores. Look at Apple stores. There's no reason other brands cannot capitalize on their own store fronts.

    Rachel - interesting - wow and here I thought it was just the import taxes jacking up the prices!
