Shiro Cosmetics: New Pricing

Hey guys!

So I’ve been going over my income and expenses and whatnot, and I’m going to be making a few very small changes to my current pricing structure in order to help with financial viability. The following changes will be going live on Friday, September 10, 2010:

-2 of my current bulk pricing sets are going to be modified. Under the new bulk pricing, you can get the following discounts:

  • 10% off 5+ colors (this is unchanged)
  • 15% off 15+ colors
  • 20% off 30+ colors

-Free shipping over $35 will no longer apply to international orders. I’m really sorry about this, but orders over $35 generally cost me around $10 to ship overseas, and it’s tough to pay that entirely out-of-pocket. The $3.50 flat rate will still apply.

I apologize for these changes, but there have been a few times recently when I’ve ended up losing money for several hours’ work, and I can’t continue to do that. I believe the prices are still very fair and competitive (the changes are honestly very small; depending on what you’re buying it shouldn’t make more than a few dollars difference from the way it was before), and I’ll also be running reasonably frequent sales.

Thank you all so much for your support! Please don’t hate me now, okay? :c

So… September 10! Grab stuff in the next couple of days if these changes are going to affect your purchases.

By the way, a bit of good news… the new collection is coming along swimmingly, and I’m still on-track for a mid-October release. ^_^ So excited!

Bare Minerals Eye Shadow

I was at the mall today when I passed by the Bare Minerals store, so I stopped in since I had a question about their mineral eye shadows. I’ve been looking for ingredient information online and can’t find anything specific, and nothing relevant is printed on the bottom of the jars, either, which I find very off-putting.

I found a saleswoman and asked her if she knew the ingredients in the eye shadows, adding, “Are they straight mica?” She responded with “No, definitely not straight mica! Um… there’s… Bismuth in them. There isn’t any titanium dioxide. And oh, yeah, I guess there is some mica in there! That’s why they’re all shimmery! But they’re all a mix of all kinds of different minerals. Iron oxide and tin oxide and stuff.” I thanked her and left.

Guess I’m still not going to try Bare Minerals eye shadow.

Have you tried it? Do you have any idea what’s in it?
