Transit times vary according to the size and weight of a package.

Lost or Delayed Packages (Standard Post) 

99% of the time, standard post is very effective and efficient. In the event that a customer reports a package undelivered after the estimated time of delivery (, we then aim to track the delayed or missing package with ANPOST parcel "missing parcel investigation" This will ensure we find out where exactly the item is e.g. if it's been delivered and where to. The system has proven very effective for us. Please note: we cannot send out a repeat order/refund until we retrieve the missing item.

Note: The company will not be responsible for missing items should you give postal instruction other than your own address such as "if not in, leave in rubbish bin at back of house" or "leave in neighbour's porch" or any instructions of such nature.

Delayed Packages could be due to a slow transit country. This can vary according to customs and post office policies in each country. In our experience, the following countries can take longer than 12-26 days: Germany, Italy, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Middle Eastern countries, South Africa, India and Pakistan.  

We cannot file a missing parcel claim until this time period has passed as your parcel may still be in transit.


Returned Packages

Returned Packages as a result of “Not being picked up” or “Not possible to deliver to customer”.

Should we receive a parcel which has been undelivered and returned to us, we will notify you. In this instance, payment will be required to resend the item. Should you not wish for the item to be resent, credit or a refund will be issued less original shipping charges.

You, the customer, are responsible for all customs taxes or other duties incurred. This can vary from country to country. It's advisable to check your own country's policy and rates to avoid any unexpected tariffs. 


Care For Your Brushes

Upon Receipt:

Check your brush that the handle is intact and there is no excessive shedding.  A small amount can be natural in the first 3-4 uses.

Issue brushes should be reported to original place of purchase within 30 days of purchase.

Please retain proof of purchase for your records.

Examples of a shedding/faulty brush: when large clumps of hair come away from the brush or the handle is loose.

How to Wash Your Brushes:

You’ve invested in cosmetic brushes so you want them to last. The most certain way to ensure that your brushes last you for years is to take proper care of them.

By cleaning your brushes, you’ll not only prevent breakouts and bacteria building on your skin but you’ll also preserve the softness of your brushes.

If you are completely new to brush washing, make sure to go to our website and check out the videos on brush washing.  If you feel you cannot care for your brushes using shampoo without getting the ferrule  wet, take action promptly and  purchase  brush spray as the safest choice.

Flash wash /spray your brushes after purchase. Especially important for the natural hair brushes (before first use). This is important as it will seal all new hairs in place.

Use a daily brush spray or deep clean using a gentle brush shampoo. Use only very small amounts (pea-sized) of product to wash your brush. Avoidallowing water run into the ferrule (shiny metal part).  This will cause the glue to loosen.

Avoid water damage. Water damage is the NO.1 cause of damage to bristles/brush heads or handles coming loose.

Rinse well. Another reason for a brush head to come apart is excess residue from product/brush cleaner not rinsed properly.  Pat dry gently with a towel.

Lay brush flat or with brush tilted downwards on a clean surface and allow to dry naturally.

See for more info on care and how to use your brushes.


Brush Life Expectancy

Most make up brushes with the general exception of foundation brushes will last you a long time if the right care and storage is in place.

Foundation brushes are exposed to the most bacteria out of your entire make up brushes collection. In this sense, they’re comparable to toothbrushes and may need replaced more often dependent on the level of use.  Product and/or brush cleaning solutions can cause bacteria and residue to build up over time in the ferrule, the glue loosens, moisture builds which can lead to brush hairs shedding or your brush head detaching from the ferrule and handle.  We keep the prices of our foundation brushes low as they may need replaced more often than the regular powder/blush/eye brush.

For more info, check for how NOT to treat your brushes.

Other Defective Items

You'll be asked to complete a brief form with your reasons for return so we can ensure we better our services to you, the customer.  We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect order or your brush is faulty).

PALETTES: Please Note: We double check every palette before dispatch and ensure they leave us in perfect condition. We go to great efforts to pack palettes so that they arrive to you undamaged. It is out of our control how your package is handled once it leaves us however should your palette arrive damaged we ask that you contact us immediately (within 1 day of receipt of defective good(s). During transportation, goods may be damaged. We ask that you take great care when opening palettes.

Despite the careful wrapping that takes place with the palettes, some palettes will still be damaged during transportation.  As the palettes are very affordable, we cannot replace every palette for minor damage. Here are a few tips as to what you can do:


  • Take a few drops of medicinal alcohol
  • Flatten the powder compact with a little bit pressure
  • Leave it for one day, and the alcohol will be evaporated completely, then the make-up will be as good as new one.

In the event of a very badly damaged palette, we ask you to contact us straight away. For return of palettes, we do not incur the shipping cost of return.




You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the "Complete Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.
