 What is the Pocket Palette?

The makeup will come in three skin color options and we hope to add more in the future. The mascara will include a mini wand so you can properly apply it to your lashes.

Why back the Pocket Palette?

Simply put, the Pocket Palette makes your life easier. How many times have you woken up late only to have to skip makeup? Or do it in the car? Or how many times have you broken your fragile makeup in your gym bag or carry-on bag? Pocket Palette is perfect for these occaisions.  Just buy a pack, spread them out into places you'll need them, and continue about your day knowing that a full face of makeup is ready when you are. 

Who's running the show?

 

Why $55,000?

To ensure that we deliver, we have obtained manufacturer quotes for every component. The costs are broken down broadly above. Naturally filling is the largest expense, followed by the components. Components include: bulk makeup, mascara wands, secondary packaging, and the reward wallets.

When will I get my Pocket Palette?

Risks and challenges

Because we have been working on this full time for the past year, we’ve worked to minimize any risks or challenges that may come with creating the Pocket Palette. Yet we know there will still be hurdles along the way. Still, we will always be transparent with you about challenges, including these:

Ship date: We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates, but there is always a chance that things will take longer than planned due to any external challenges such as weather. (For example, there was a delay in the past due to hurricanes because of manufactures locations in Florida and Texas. We are happy to report they did not suffer any sufficient damage).

Product changes: Slight changes to the Pocket Palette might be made as we receive feedback from our backers, and after more product testing. But don’t worry, any change we make will only enhance the product experience.

Supplier coordination: We are working with a variety of vendors to maximize the value you receive. Each supplier has its own challenges, which may affect its partners, including us.
