Revlon color cosmetics gave strong performance in Latin America, Asia Pacific and European markets, driving international sales up 10.3% to $160 mil. In June, Revlon completed sale of Bozzano line of men's hair care and shaving products, along with other "non-core brands" sold in Brazil, to Hypermarcas S.A. for roughly $104 mil.
