General

Complex Culture does not test any of our products on animals; nor do we allow
anyone to test our products on animals.

Almost all products are vegan, however there are a few exceptions. We make clear to note which products or shades are not vegan.

No, both our makeup case and makeup bag are both made of vegan leather.

Brush Edit

Complex Culture brushes are the first of its kind with each bristle and handle made out of plant starch. Based on lab test results, we are happy to confirm that the bristles and handle are biodegradable.

To keep your brushes in great condition, we recommend using a brush cleaner or any cleaner (baby shampoo is a great alternative!) used for your other makeup brushes. Create a lather by swirling brushes in the cleaner, rinse well and repeat if necessary.

The handle is 96% biodegradable in approximately 170 days. It must be composted before it biodegrades, but it will not degrade with prolonged exposure to light or heat. Please note, the metal part is not biodegradable, but it is recyclable. Also, our brush bristles are softer and more-eco-friendly than traditional synthetic bristles and better grasp product for easier application. While we don’t have a specific lifespan for our brushes, they are made from high quality materials and with good care should last for many more years.

This multi-purpose complexion brush features a large dome shape and exclusive Syn Tech™ bristles that pick up and deposit the perfect amount of powder, ensuring quick all-over application when you're short on time. It pairs perfectly with our Set, Go Translucent Powder, or any face powder you want to effortlessly sweep over large areas.

Use the Complex Culture Plush Powder Brush to dust powder all over skin. Can be worn alone or on top of makeup for a long-lasting, soft focus finish.

We recommend using the Complex Culture All Over Highlight • Powder Brush to lightly dust product onto the high points of your face for a radiant glow.

We recommend using the Complex Culture Contour • Blush Brush, swirl blush onto the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion. To contour, diffuse bronzer just below your hairline, under cheekbones, and down your jawline.

Billing

We currently accept all major cards including: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit or debit cards. We also accept PayPal (U.S. and Canada only), Android/Apple pay.

We do not accept personal checks, money orders, or credit cards issued from other countries outside of Canada or the United States.

Don't worry.  When you submit an order through your credit card company, an authorization hold for the full order amount is processed as a pending transaction. An authorization hold is not an actual charge and may appear to be slightly higher than the actual order total (generally it’s $1 additional). This amount guarantees that funds will be available when the order is billed. This charge is completely removed once the order has been successfully processed.

If you encounter a problem when placing an order, several authorizations may appear on your statement. These will be removed by the credit card company automatically usually within 7-10 business days.

We only accept cards from the U.S. and Canada, but we do accept international Paypal accounts. You can place orders using any of these payment methods online, provided that the ship-to address is in the United States.

At this time, we do not accept credit cards issued from other countries, and only ship orders within the United States. We hope to expand to other regions in the future.

You will need to make a single purchase transaction for this product. So if you are ordering other products at the same time, you will need to make two separate transactions; one for SET, GO Translucent Finishing Powder and another one for all your other items.

You will not be charged until your SET, GO Translucent Powder is ready to ship. We will send a confirmation at that time to let your know your credit card has been charged and your shipment is on its way.
