We recognize ordering cosmetics online can be difficult, so we offer samples sizes of all our complexion products. We strongly suggest you order samples to test out a new shade before purchasing a full size. Sample sizes are final sale and cannot be exchanged.

Once you purchase, if you decide the product is just not for you, we offer a shade replacement on products or a store credit for the value of the item (excluding tax and shipping fee) if you'd like to try something else. Our policy lasts 1 month after purchase. If 1 month have gone by since your order was placed, we may not be able to offer you a new product.

Please send an email to and we will give you instructions on how to exchange your item.
