CLOSED FOR NOVEMBER -  No orders placed starting November 1 will be filled until the end of November, perhaps the beginning of December.  That's why there appears to be no products. They're all in hiding. 

I apologize for the inconvenience. 

For details about this temporary closure, take a look at the most recent newsletter. If you want to start receiving the newsletter*, you can sign up using the little form at the bottom of the pages of this site. 

*the newsletters vary in length. This was a long one. Sometimes it's just a quick howdy and a coupon code. :-) 


AUSTRALIA and New Zealand customers:  the US Postal Service has temporarily suspended all First Class package service from the US to Australia and New Zealand due to the pandemic.  

If you are interested in learning the prices for Priority International, write to me at and I'll be happy to look it up. I'll need some idea of what you'd be ordering so I'd know the size and weight of the package. 

I can say without knowing details that it would be over $40. Yikes. I know. 

CANADA CUSTOMERS: Apparently the postage is being figured inaccurately for you. GAH!! I'm sorry, and I'll try to get to the bottom of it. I just had a customer in Calgary say that her postage for her order was figured to be $40. She wrote and asked me about it. I looked up Reality Based Postage and it was a more appropriate $15. 

Here's what we can do in this situation: 
1. You can complete your order, write to me and have me refund any excess postage you've paid, OR
2. Write to me and tell me all the stuff you wanted to order. I'll send you an invoice for it with the real postage amount. 

The downside to #1 is that it'll take 5+ days for the refunded amount to show up on your account.

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience. Good luck and stay safe. Let's be careful out there. Each one of you is important.

ABOUT THE "CHECK COLOR" MESSAGE at the top of the pages - 

Drop-down menus with color choices are great, except that sometimes you're still in that menu when you try to scroll down or up to look at stuff on the page AFTER making your color selection. Sometimes you're still in the menu, and you don't notice that your color choice has been changed. Usually to Alabaster, as it turns out. ;-)  (I may start emailing people who order Alabaster foundation to have them verify that it's the color they want. Heheheh) 

So please take a gander at your order before finalizing the order. Or, if you notice after you've finished, you can write to us at and tell us the color you had intended to order. 


The latest USPS notification about international shipping:

I don't know why Australia and New Zealand are not on it. And I'm surprised to see the UK and Netherlands listed. Hm. :/
