Can't seem to find Revlon cosmetics in Geneva

I'm not sure if it's me, or if they simply don't have it here in Geneva, but I can't seem to find any Revlon cosmetics/make up. I've tried Globus, Manor, Migros, even pharmacies, but nope, no one has it, which I'm really surprised at I must say - I would have thought it was a big enough brand to stock in at least one of those places.

Any one know if it's stocked here or where I can find it if it is? Thanks!

I've made a search with Revlon and Genève and had some results (actually Globus was the first one...)

Did you try to google it ?

Better yet, send a query to www.revlon.ch. The address is in Adliswil so they may not have distributors over here.

I checked on their website and Douglas (rue du Marché) does not carry the brand.

Thanks guys. Bertrand, the Globus one says it's only available at Lucerne, Basel, Locarno and Glattzentrum.

Might take up Suisse's suggestion of emailing Revlon Schweiz. Or I suppose I could just pop over the border... France is bound to have some!

Looks as if Revlon, in spite of being represented via that office in Adliswil, has outsourced its distribution in Switzerland to www.deurocros.ch

Yes, I saw that as well. For info; Douglas is a retailer that is specialized in perfumes and cosmetics. They tend to carry most of the major brands so that is why I had a look at their website. The Geneva shop is quite large as well.

I sometimes went to Douglas Zurich to buy the usual Clarins thing for Christmas, my mother for many many years so much preferred

I however have seen Revlon products with my mother for ages and so was a bit surprised by the things above
