Eyeshadow Palette Artwork Updates ROUND 2 and Shipping Update!!!
Look what showed up on our doorstep this morning!!!! We absolutely COULD NOT WAIT to share with you all, we were screaming with excitement when we opened up the package!
Before you watch this video, please note that this is just the FIRST physical sample of the Naturally Glam Eyeshadow Palette and Bold and Bright Eyeshadow Palette. Please also note that these are NOT the final eyeshadow colors. They are only placeholders to visualize pigments in the pan!
Check it out!!!
So, like we said, this is just a “first draft” video of these palettes but COME ON!! HOW GORGEOUS ARE THESE?!?!?!?! We literally couldn’t just keem ‘em to ourselves :) You should have heard all of us Dolls gasp once we did the big reveal here in the office!
We also thought it would be cool to point out why we’re so careful to make sure everything is absolutely perfect before going into final production. Check out the Naturally Glam Eyeshadow Palette for example. Do you see how the cat’s faces aren’t perfectly lined up? That’s something that we look for when we get in samples like this! The Bold and Bright Palette is way better, except that a little ear pops out (wassup Forrest) in the upper corner.
Okay, cool. So what’s the next step?
Lisa will get physical samples, make edits, and work her magic. We get another round of samples and then move into final production! EEEEEKKKKK!!!!!!!!!
Of course, it’s totally possible that the second round of samples might also require some reworking, but we don’t stop until all products look perfect!
Also, we wanted to share an update about our fulfillment process because we get LOTS of questions about tracking information, order fill time, etc.
A few weeks ago we made a game-time decision to outsource our shipping processes. Right now, we have about 10 Dolls in the Doll House on a given day and we do all order fulfillment in-house of our online store orders. It’s WILD but fun!!
Because our little Glam Fam has grown to be not-so-little anymore (YAY!!!), we decided to partner with an outside agency for fulfillment. The coordination of these efforts have been a little time-consuming, but we really believe it will greatly improve efficiency for your packages and for the future of Glamour Dolls!!
A note/short story about the travel bronzer/ travel eye shadow shipment:
So, it’s almost the end of October & lots of you are asking for updates on the travel bronzer and travel eyeshadow shipments. We were SO EXCITED because we had absolutely everything perfect for the best surprise shipment EVER.
Then, THEY GOT STUCK IN CUSTOMS FOR 2 WEEKS.
Yeah, good times. Here’s the backstory:
The FDA has the authority to regulate and randomly choose items such as cosmetics for inspection. It has happened to us before, and is nothing to be concerned about, but in our unlucky case it took 2 weeks for the inspection to occur and finally be sent on it’s way. The good news is the makeup is finally on its way to New York from customs and once it arrives to our fulfillment facility they will immediately be shipped to you. We apologize for the delay! The wait has been just as just as painful for us!!
Being as today is 10/26, we expect the product to arrive to the shipping facility AND be SHIPPED TO YOU on 10/31, and therefore you should expect the makeup on your doorstep during the first week in November.
We hope you like the first peek at the Naturally Glam Eyeshadow Palette and Bold and Bright Eyeshadow Palettes! It is truly a surreal experience to be able to physically hold these items that we have all worked so long on. We really can’t wait for them to be in your hands soon too!
