About Twinkle Apothecary

Shimmer Powders

Multipurpose glow makers. Use these loose powders as eyeshadow, or blush, dust them on your body, or add them to any DIY beauty application you can dream up.

Packaging update! New Shimmer Powders are now being packaged in biodegradable shaker tubes, which hold the same amount as the jars. (Approximately 5 grams.) The jars are on clearance, while supplies last!

The colors

Highlights

  • Diamond is a white shimmer with large sparkles 
  • Highlight is a nude-peach shimmer with white/gold/beige undertones 
  • Citrine is a yellow gold shimmer with large sparkles 

Pinks/Reds/Purples

  • Rose quartz is a light frosted pink/gold highlight 
  • Amethyst is an iridescent highlight with purplish pink tones. 
  • Mother of pearl is a neutral tan/pink shimmer with iridescent lilac undertones 
  • Pink tourmaline is a bright pink shimmer with large diamond sparkles 
  • Fire opal is a warm, reddish pink coral with large diamond sparkles 

Neutrals

  • Obsidian is a dark grayish shimmer with purple undertones 
  • Sandstone is a warm, honeyed beige 
  • Bronze is a golden dark brown/tan

Instructions

As makeup: apply to eyelids, cheeks, or anywhere you want to highlight using a makeup brush, sponge, powder puff, or your fingertips. Get creative. Shimmer powders are endlessly versatile and sheer enough that they're impossible to mess up.

They're also buildable: simply apply more for a brighter color. You can slightly dampen your makeup brush, sponge, or finger before dipping it into the jar for even more color payoff. Just be sure to keep the contents of the jar mostly dry for storage.

If you prefer, you can also mix these powders with a drop of facial oil for a more sheer, spreadable color. 

As body shimmer: lightly dust onto your body using a makeup brush, sponge, or powder puff.

Layer: Shimmer powders add dimension and allow you to change up your look when layered under the Twinkle Apothecary shimmer balms.

DIY: funnel approximately 1/4 teaspoon into a 2 oz jar of body oil, facial serum, body powder, or dry shampoo for a subtle shimmery glow.

Product FAQs 

Can I see more swatches? 

This (my left forearm) is all I can offer for now as a one-person business. I encourage everyone to order small samples, and post reviews with pictures here so shoppers can see what these look like on other skin tones.

Consider joining Patreon for more behind the scenes views (selfies, videos, blogs...) of Twinkle Apothecary makeup in action. 

How do I use these without making a mess?  

You don't. This isn't makeup that you can toss in your gym bag or do in the car on the way to work. (Please never do that, by the way.) Leaving these colors loose (as opposed to pressing them down into a compact) was a purposeful decision - so that they could be used in any number of DIY applications. For a more travel-friendly product, check out the shimmer balms

Ok, one tip: utilize the lid of the jar to tap off excess powder. You can also sprinkle some powder into the lid and work from there instead of dipping your brush/finger directly into the jar.  

What is the shelf life?  

These colors have an indefinite shelf life when kept dry. Good news, because it can take years for you to use them up!

Beautiful!

I love the bronze shimmer powder. I use it in place of gel bronzer and I feel better knowing the ingredients are better for me skin.

I'm so glad you're loving it! Thank you for the review :)

fun shimmer powder!

fire opal shimmer powder is a beautiful color and has a fun, subtle shimmer to it. i ordered a sample of the sandstone and it's a really pretty, everyday color for eyelids.

Fire Opal is a really fun one! I'm so glad you're enjoying them. Thanks for the review!

Love, love, love

I’ve been using these shimmers for years! My favorite has been Sandstone and I tried a few more colors more recently and absolutely love them too. They’re so fun with the perfect amount of shimmer for daytime or nighttime. Such a fan!

I'm so glad you're enjoying all of the colors! Thanks for the review!

Beautiful as expected

I ordered a sample of Pink Tourmaline to try on my fair, neutral skin tone. The powder is gorgeous, and a little goes a long way. For me personally, I prefer to use Twinkle's shimmer balms for everyday wear, but this powder is great for something special!

The Pink Tourmaline powder can really pop and would be so fun for something special! Thanks for the review!

Super Versatile

I order a sample of the Bronze Shimmer and it's a beautiful color. I have used it alone as an eyeshadow, as a blush on my cheeks and sprinkled into my Facewhip when I want a little more color all over. Can't wait to try more colors!

Thank you, I'm so glad to hear that you're taking advantage of the multipurpose aspect of the bronze powder! This is great feedback!
