Domestic and International Shipping is outsourced to a National Facility. Their shipping partners include : USPS, UPS, Fed Ex, Amazon Delivery Services, OnTrac, and Lasership. (If delivery occurs with Amazon Delivery Services, the items ordered will arrive in a box/envelope with their branding on it). Some of these carriers will deliver items as late as 10:000pm. Unfortunately, because our shipping system is automated, we cannot control which carrier is used when shipping out your order. Depending on your location, your order may arrive in multiple shipments.
We do everything in our power to keep shipping prices as low as possible and we try our best to ship as fast as possible.
Adept Cosmetics offers free standard shipping on all US ground orders within the 48 contiguous states, on orders that reach a certain dollar threshold. For orders under that threshold, there is a flat fee of around $4.00 to $7.00.
Upon shipment, you will receive an email with your tracking information and a link which will allow you to track your shipment. If your items ship UPS, USPS or Fed-Ex, you will also receive a notification that your package was delivered. Please be aware that any delays incurred by the carrier is at their discretion and not at the discretion of Adept Cosmetics. If the carrier decides that your package needs to be picked up at the post office rather than delivered to your door - this is at their discretion as well and not at the discretion of Adept Cosmetics. You must make the trip and pick up your package. Any package that is not picked up for any reason and is sent back to us is not refundable and cannot be re-mailed to you. The carrier will generally give you a week to two weeks to pick up the item being held at the post office and will leave a note on your door. If a note is not left, you can find out where your item is by looking up your tracking number which is e-mailed to your inbox.
Items that ship via USPS sometimes take 1 to 3 business days to update tracking information in their system and may already be on their way to your doorstep.
When checking out, please be sure to enter your shipping address accurately BEFORE submitting your order as this information will print exactly as entered on your shipping label. Once the assigned carrier has confirmed delivery of your order, we are not responsible for stolen packages and cannot issue a refund. If there was a mistake on your address upon checkout, we cannot issue a refund.
Note: Sometimes USPS will mark a package as delivered, when they intend to deliver it the next business day, or within a few days. If this happens we ask that you wait a week to see if it arrives. You can also check with your neighbors and/or post office for more information in the meantime.
Once the package has been scanned in by the assigned carrier, it's not considered lost until 30 days has past if you're within the United States and 60 days if you're outside of the United States. Please remember that this is after it's scanned into the carrier's system. If the package is lost in their system, please email us immediately and we will start the replacement process for you. We do not issue refunds for lost packages, however, we will send out a replacement as soon as possible.
