COVID-19, ALSO KNOWN AS “CORONAVIRUS” / PANDEMIC AND OTHER “EXCEPTIONS”
Please note, some of our manufacturers have temporarily suspended operations due to COVID-19 (or other reasons). Please call the showroom to place an order, as it will not be fulfilled, or shipped until verbal confirmation that your products you require are in stock and payment has been made.
In the event of a virus/bacterial/fungal outbreak, natural hazards outside of our control, war, riot, crime, epidemic, pandemic, power outages, internet outages, phone outages, credit card terminal outages, supplier malfunctioning, and/or similar occurrences to these, Cosmetics Dallas holds the right to cancel orders, delay non-essential deliveries and/or pursue action that Cosmetics Dallas believes to be fair.
Our statement includes:
Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, we have had to consider many factors for the safety and concern of our customers. Earlier in 2020, we introduced more intense sanitization practices and introduced disposable supply samples to reduce contact interactions.
To better serve our consumers, we have introduced this online platform dedicated to those of us who are practicing social distancing. This site should allow customers the comfortability and ease to “browse” at home. We are still working out some of the technicalities, so pricing and availability of items are subject to change until after the order is fulfilled. This site should serve as an online catalog, so users can place orders while in the comfort of their own home. Consequently, payment methods will be discussed via telesales.
For the safety of our employees and our customers / clients, we encourage the use of personal protection gear, to include but not limited to masks, gloves, sanitizers, soap and water, and other protectants. it is also your responsibility to comply with governmental CDC conditions and our building (building, building manager, property manager, property owner) may refuse business/access to those who do not comply with their terms as well as governmental terms.

SHOP WITH CONFIDENCE
We are not just a virtual store and actually have a physical showroom at the “Dallas Trade Mart” (Also known as the World Trade Center in Dallas) you can contact. our standard business hours are 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM Central Time Monday – Friday (hours may vary on holidays or other circumstances). Contact our showroom telephone: +1-214-655-1616 for more information on our showroom or products.
All the products we sell are guaranteed by us to reflect the description on our website. Please return an unopened product for a full refund if you feel any product does not reflect our description.
To enhance your credit card/debit card security, we do not store your credit card details electronically on our own computers. You can call the showroom to verbally place an order, rather than order online. You agree to not hold us liable if your credit card or debit card is declined by your financial institution.
You are welcome to purchase by cash (and check by approval), at our showroom.
USAGE DESIGNED FOR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Our platforms and sites are intended only to be used within the United States of America. We cannot guarantee purchases or availability of our site/services outside of this region. If you choose to browse the site outside the United States of America, you agree to do so at your own risk.
Our aim is to always be competitive while supplying quality products. pricing available on the website is subject to change at any time. Pricing online may glitch or may be copied incorrectly, and Cosmetics Dallas reserves the right to cancel orders placed for incorrect pricing.
As our online platform is in beta development, it should serve as a catalog. Tax settings have yet to be configured, and may not appear on the online order price and/or may be charged separately. For Texas residents, please consider the standard 8.25% rate unless you, the client, are tax exempt.
PLACING AN ORDER ON THIS ONLINE PLATFORM
All products are subject to availability and price changes and therefore nothing on our site shall constitute an offer but rather an invitation to purchase. Both price and availability on this site may be updated or changed without notice.
You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to order or create an account on our website(s). By placing an online order form, you are stating that you intend to purchase the items you have selected, assuming it would be possible.
No warranty is given to availability or price, until a phone call between us and you is placed to confirm your order with us has been accepted and we have received your payment. Currently, we only take payment once we have confirmed we have stock of the product you wish to order. We will then confirm your total order price, including the shipping costs before payment.
Upon receiving a product, should the dispenser or the product prove to be defective, then we will replace or refund your purchase provided it is brought to our attention immediately and the product is unused. Any other product liability shall be limited to the price paid for that product, or a replacement of similar US Dollar ($) value.
SHIPPING AND SALES TAX
All orders will be subject to our UPS, FedEx or other postal shipping rates. A $5.00 (Five USD) handling and packing charge may apply to all orders. All internet orders are subject to sales tax regulations. We will not ship any order placed on this website if it is outside of the continental United States of America. All orders shipped to addresses in Texas are subject to 8.25% sales tax rate, unless the goods are for resale, in which case we must have a completed and signed sales tax exempt form on file from you. All internet orders to other states may be subject to sales tax, depending on each state's taxing authorities rules. Any customer acknowledges they may be responsible for paying sales tax owed on their order to their state, if not collected by us.
The majority of our products are for private-label. Most of these products are manufactured in the USA, although some may be from Europe, or other countries. All are chosen for their quality. To help you with your own private label selections we have more competitive pricing on these lines, especially for quantity purchases.
Make an appointment to visit our physical showroom (via phone or email) at the World Trade Center in Dallas to see and discuss the products and lines we have available for your own private label.
NON PRIVATE LABEL PRODUCTS
We also carry some branded make-up and non-make-up product lines. From time to time, we manage to offer some limited-time “closeouts” at very competitive pricing mainly on non-cosmetic products.
PIGMENTS ARE DIFFERENT TO PIXELS
When it comes to colors, what you see on your screen may not reflect the color in real life, as pigments are different to pixels. Also, make-up colors will appear different when indoors, under different types of artificial light, or outdoors with natural light. Please call our showroom if you require an actual product color swatch on paper (for pickup).
We have photographed many of our products as they appear, However, please be informed some photographs have had their images altered, edited, enhanced and may not be to scale. Since some products we sell like skin care may or may not be branded by our suppliers, please call to check before ordering if you intend to resell under your own private label.
Product packaging/casing may vary. An example would be lipsticks, which may come in either round or rectangular packaging depending on the color. Some packaging differences may not be outlined in the photos of the website.
