Sinful Colors, a Revlon-owned nail-polish line, is warning state regulators of 117 layoffs in Beltsville as it closes the Prince George's County facility next year.
The layoffs, set to begin Jan. 1, appear to be the Maryland manufacturing cuts that Revlon said in September would be coming as part of a global reorganization eliminating 250 jobs.
The company would not say then how many layoffs would hit Maryland, or where its local manufacturing operations were located. State officials and a number of local economic development representatives said they didn't know the facility's location — even the Prince George's County Economic Development Corp. said at the time that it didn't know of such a manufacturing operation in the county.
That could be because Sinful Colors is a relatively new addition to Revlon, which acquired the nail-polish brand last year from Mirage Cosmetics.
New details emerged Thursday morning after Sinful Colors disclosed the layoffs to the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
