Business After Motherhood

Welcome to D&E Handmade Cosmetics. Thanks for taking a bit of time to learn more about me and my shop. My name is Eva and I'm the owner of D&E Handmade Cosmetics.

I am originally from Puerto Rico, and after serving in the United States Army for eight years I settled with my husband in the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. My husband is originally from Hawaii and we have two loving daughters born in 2010 and 2012.

I began making mineral makeup in 2011 after having some major breakouts in my skin. I gave birth to my daughter in the spring in 2010 and my skin was never the same. I blamed it to hormones and new motherhood stress, but time passed by and my skin never went back to normal. I began researching cosmetic ingredients and what makes us break out, and I discovered that mainstream cosmetics contain lots of ingredients that are just not good for the skin. I then ordered raw materials and started creating my own cosmetics. My skin made a dramatic change and I knew that I was on to something positive. I began making so many colors and products that the next step for me was opening my shop and share what I was creating with other people besides my family and friends.

D&E Handmade Cosmetics is available in the Etsy Marketplace, and also locally at Down to Earth in the Kapolei Commons shopping center.

I'm also a certified makeup artist. I do makeup on location or at my studio in Kapolei. I have experience with weddings, fashion and pageants among others. To view my portfolio, rates, and book an appointment visit evasalcedo.com.

I'm always looking for retailers. If you believe my products fit your retail needs, feel free to drop me a line to dehandmadecosmetics [!at] gmail.com for more information.

I'd like to thank each and every single person who has helped me along the way: my mom, my husband, my in-laws and the rest of my family, my best friend Cindy, Shantel Grace for believing in my products and writing a wonderful story about them, the Star Advertiser for featuring my products on their newspaper and supporting women veterans, and of course my customers who come back again and again for my products and put a smile on my face with their words of beauty and happiness. I don't take any of this for granted and I'm beyond excited about my journey.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 6, 2014
D&E Handmade Cosmetics offers eyeshadows, lipsticks, bronzers, foundation, eyeliner, and everything else that comes to my imagination and I can make it come true. 99% of my makeup is vegan friendly and non vegan items will be clearly marked on the listing.

I place a lot of time researching and ensuring my makeup is mild to suit those with sensitive skin. I can accommodate requests, therefore if you have oily skin, or you know you are sensitive to a specific ingredient I can reformulate my product to cover your request.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I will accept returns on unopened, sealed makeup. You have 5 days after you received your order to return any items. I do not cover shipping expenses on returning products. Send returns to:

D&E Handmade Cosmetics
92-1128 Liolio PL
Kapolei, HI 96707

In addition, if you are dissatisfied with your product please let me know and we will work something out (i.e. a refund, mail you a different product, gift card, etc.). Please allow me the opportunity to ensure you are satisfied before leaving any negative feedback. You can contact me here on Etsy via convo or email me at dehandmadecosmetics [!at] gmail.com.
Payment
I accept Paypal, postal money orders, and credit cards. Money Orders and checks must clear before your order can be shipped. Orders will not ship until full payment is received and processed.
Shipping
Your order ships within 3-5 business day via the US Post Office. Domestic first class arrives in 3-5 business days and international orders can take up to 30 days or more depending on your country. Hawaii is 5-6 hours behind the U.S. east coast, so please keep that in mind if you are awaiting a convo reply. I will send you an email notification letting you know your items were shipped.

If you wish to insure your package please let me know and I will send you an invoice for the cost of insurance. I cannot mark items as gift (international customers), however, it is unlikely packages will be held as they are usually very inexpensive. Any custom or duty taxes are the responsibility of the buyer to their respective country of origin.

*International Customers: I have set up shipping charges for "everywhere else" that function well to cover all countries, however, once I ship your order and know the exact shipping cost (you will know too as this is printed on the envelope) I WILL RETURN any unused portion of the shipping you paid back to your account. This way you can have peace of mind that even if the shipping seems too high, you will receive back any shipping money I didn't use.

*In January of 2013 the USPS increased international shipping charges by about 40%. All listings have been updated to reflect this change. ALL orders over $50 enjoy free shipping and I encourage you to take advantage of this offer, especially if you're an international customer.
Additional policies and FAQs
=================================================================

"Wet" makeup (i.e. lipstick, eyeliner, moisturizer) contains preservatives. Without preservatives makeup will spoil in 2-3 weeks! My preservative of choice for lipsticks, lip gloss, or anything else that has moisture on it is sorbic acid (sa). Sorbic acid is the mildest preservative out there, and it will safely ensure your makeup doesn't grow bacteria and give you an infection. This is a vegan friendly ingredient.

The loose eyeshadows potential shelf life is forever as it does not contain moisture (bacteria needs moisture to grow). I recommend you keep your brushes clean to prolong the life of your cosmetics and to keep bacteria away from the eye area. The rest of cosmetics in the line will last 2-3 years.

If you want a color customized email me a picture of the color you want and I will customize it for you. This is great for colors that get discontinued.

If you're interested in purchasing my products wholesale to sell at your shop or boutique, please send me a convo and I will give you more details.
