L'Oreal reported results this morning, and in response beauty product names like Revlon (NYSE: REV), Avon Products (NYSE: AVP) and Estee Lauder (NYSE: EL) were able to outperform the Standard & Poor 500 on the Thursday session.

L'Oreal mentions in its press release that it grew its Non-GAAP EPS by 7.5 percent year-over-year. The non-GAAP EPS excludes the impact from charges related to a transaction with Nestle.

Revenue also grew by 3.8 percent year-over-year, and it was driven by an improving Western European economy (2.8 percent year-over-year growth in this geography), for the first half of 2014.

With Western European growth, L'Oreal communicates to investors in other personal household & products companies that the macro story may not be as bad.
