See you in 2012!

So we are now officially closed in preparation for the move! This means that we will have very limited Internet access the next month or two due to the amount of work we have to do packing and traveling so if we are slow to answer, it is not that we are ignoring you, but that we just are unable to.

If there are any problems with orders, please understand that we will have everything packed up and cannot ship any items until the move is complete. We would like to remind those that place International orders, we cannot do anything about it anyway unless you purchased Shipping Insurance. For those that did purchase it and have an issue, again it will be at least 1-2 months before we can do anything anyway as we ask you to wait about 60 days from the time your order ships out before we can do anything.

As of right now, we are still processing orders but we expect them all to be shipped out by early next week. We are actually pleasantly overwhelmed with the amount of orders that came in and has actually put a halt on some of our packing so we are rather behind on getting these out in our normal 24-48 hour timeline. Because the Customs number on International orders does not help you track it outside of the US, you will simply get a Shipping Notice; U.S. orders will be sent the Tracking number along with the Shipping Notice.

Other than that, I believe that is all for now. We will try to blog to give updates on where we are at just in case we run into "snags" and detours in trying to restart the business in our new city. Thank you everyone for being so supportive and your wishes of good luck during our move! We are excited and think this will be a wonderful thing for adorned with Grace as well! :)

The coupon code for orders $15 or more is:

Less than a week before closing!

Just reminding everyone that our store will be temporarily closing this Thursday, Sept. 8 with the last day to shop on Sept. 7. We have added some new Clearance items such as Grab Bags of the discontinued both sample and full-size of Blush & Eyecolors as well as Blush & Eyecolor bundles. Most of these items are going fast so if you would like to get them act soon!

However, you may also risk it and wait to save more as we are going to be issuing a discount code either Sept. 4 or 5, so definitely check back here then. As with our other coupon codes, though, because it is a rather large percentage (more so than any other time we've issued them) this will only be for orders $15 or more, so go ahead and order if yours is less than $15 not including shipping.

Our powders and foundations and some of the Clearance items are going pretty fast out of stock though so if you don't want to risk running out of inventory, definitely order soon! We want the last couple days to move fast since we need to pack up the remainder of whatever we do not sell.

As we noted in the previous entry, please allow for increased shipping time since we are in the midst of some very hectic packing (as well as traveling this and next weekend!) but trust that your orders should ship out no later than Sept. 12-13. We refuse to move unless we finish processing all orders!

In other clarification since we are getting a few emails asking, if there is an item that has gone Out of Stock, assuming it is a regular item, not something in our Clearance section, it will be Out of Stock until we reopen in early 2012. We have packed up our blending equipment and cannot make anything else, nor have reordered brushes/accessories. There will be a handful of foundation colors that may not make a return but that is all to be determined during the hiatus.

Remember, we will likely be increasing our prices (not a whole lot but a fair percentage to make a difference over the last two years we have been open to account for our increasing rates for the raw materials we use) and our shipping rates as well due to the constant rising of prices every year/six months. Although this is more of a hobby business, it is still a business and may be hard to maintain its quality if our rates continue as they are.

Again, we'll be back with a very short but quick blog giving you all the awesome coupon code for orders $15 or more either on Sunday or Monday!
