Effective as of April 23, 2020

These Purchase and Sale Terms and Conditions (these “Purchase Terms”) apply to any order you place through or on www.elfcosmetics.com (the “Website”). These terms are supplemented by our Terms of Use, Privacy Notice and FAQs. Please read these Purchase Terms and the supplemental terms carefully before you submit your order to us.

The Website is owned and operated by e.l.f. Cosmetics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“we” or “e.l.f. Cosmetics”). Our headquarters are located at 570 10th Street, 3rd Floor, Oakland, CA 94607, USA. You may contact us here.

Please note that we keep these Purchase Terms updated and we amend them from time to time, so remember to check back in before you use the Website, as the latest version will apply.


Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside the United States and Canada as the Website is solely for the purchase and sale of our products in the U.S. and Canada.

Completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your offer to purchase products from us. All offered products on the Website are subject to availability. We reserve the right to change the items offered via the Website at any time and without notice. The Website may contain information about the availability of products at the time of ordering, but the quantity of inventory actually available can change significantly and without notice. We are not liable if products are not in stock or otherwise not available.

We will notify you by email as soon as possible to acknowledge that we have received and are processing your order. Following receipt of payment from you, we will ship the products and send you a shipping confirmation which will constitute our acceptance of your order. Prior to shipment of the product(s), we have the right to decline an order for any reason, including legal and regulatory reasons.

If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

Please note that once an order has been placed, it cannot be canceled or amended. Please be sure to check your order before it is placed to make sure it is completely accurate.


The price of the product (which is exclusive of applicable sales tax) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. All prices are quoted in United States currency on the Website. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. We charge sales tax on all orders shipping to the United States (except for orders shipping to states that do not have a sales tax).

It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognized by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.

You acknowledge and agree that all information you provide with regards to a purchase of products, including, without limitation, credit card, PayPal, or other payment information, is accurate, current and complete. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the payment method you provide to us or our payment processor, including, without limitation, any credit card you provide when completing a transaction. Please see our FAQs for the payment methods we currently accept.


The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on the Website when you complete the online checkout process. Delivery will be to the address specified in your order and the date of delivery of your order will depend on the delivery address. Please see more details of our delivery fees and estimated delivery time frames here.

All products purchased through the Website are made pursuant to a shipment contract. All shipments are made FCA, Shipping Point, Incoterms®2010 (freight prepaid and added to invoice). Risk of loss and title for your purchased items pass to you, and legal delivery is completed, upon our delivery of these items to the carrier for shipment to you at the Shipping Point. “Shipping Point” means the “shipped from” address on our sales or shipping documentation. “Freight prepaid and added to invoice” means that we pay the shipping charges and add such charges to your invoice.

When you purchase products through the Website, you agree and acknowledge that we will arrange for shipment of those products to you on your behalf as your agent and that you have authorized us to select the delivery service or carrier you indicated during the online checkout process. As indicated above, shipping charges are invoiced to you when you complete the online checkout process.

For information regarding availability of shipments to Canada and any additional terms and conditions may apply, please refer to the Shipping page on the Website. If any items are shipped to any location in Canada, you agree and acknowledge that you will be the importer of record, and that you will be liable to pay all customs duties, taxes, and similar charges, if any, imposed by the customs authorities for the import of the items to that location.

Do not give us any personal information of anyone under the age of 13 for delivery or shipping purposes or for any other reason.

If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take reasonable steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

Please note that we are unable to edit orders once they have been placed because orders are immediately transmitted to our shipping department. Therefore, if you enter an incorrect shipping address, your order may be shipped to the wrong address. Please be sure to check your address before your order has been placed.

Discounts and coupons are not valid for gift card purchases. Only one coupon code may be applied per order.

We may offer certain promotional codes, referral codes, discount codes, coupon codes or similar offers (“Promotional Codes”) that may be redeemed for discounts on future products, or other features or benefits related to the Website, subject to any additional terms that e.l.f.
