About Twinkle Apothecary

The Stain

An herbal-infused, oil-based, roll-on lip & cheek tint.

Alkanet root infused sunflower oil leaves your lips and cheeks with a natural-yet-buildable berry flush.

The stain is good for every skin type, but it only comes in one sheer color. Deeper skin tones will see a brighter color payoff with my shimmer balms in ruby or garnet. 

Ingredients

organic sunflower oil, wildcrafted alkanet root, non-gmo tocopherol oil (vitamin E,) lavender essential oil, cinnamon essential oil  

sunflower oil: non-pore clogging, soaks into skin quickly without leaving a greasy sheen

alkanet root: provides a safe, botanical-based tint 

essential oils: a single drop of cinnamon boosts circulation to enhance your glow, lavender balances the earthy scent of alkanet root

Instructions

Roll onto lips and cheeks, blending with fingertips or a sponge. Add more for a brighter color or keep it light. It's beautiful alone or layered with other lip products. 

Idea: Layer it over your favorite red lip liner for a bold, juicy flush - or over/under your favorite shimmer balm or shimmer powder for a boost of color.

Product FAQs

Will this stain my skin?

Actually, no. The stain is sheer, buildable, and easy to blend. (It's just a fun name.) However, it can stain certain countertop surfaces and clothing, so proceed with caution. 

Can you make this is in another color? 

No. In fact, the color of the Alkanet root changes slightly from lot to lot (nature... how dare she?!) so you may receive a bottle that's more or less bright than what's pictured. That said, these are always crafted in small batches to achieve the brightest color payoff possible.  

Can you make it without the cinnamon essential oil?

No, these are made by the batch, not by the bottle. There is one drop of cinnamon in each bottle, which creates a very subtle warming sensation (and fantastic scent) that should be safe for most people. Try the shimmer balm in Ruby for a similar but cinnamon free tint.

The perfect lip color I didn’t know I needed

I’d been eyeing this lip stain for years now but kept putting off buying it because I didn’t really need another lip color right now. Then I received it as a free sample and was sold. I love everything about this. The color is gorgeous and buildable. The texture feels amazing on my lips and keeps them hydrated even in winter

Yay, I love hearing that - free samples for the win! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, so glad you're enjoying it!

So good

I’ve bought this product multiple times and it never disappoints. Love the buildable color!

That's awesome to hear! Thanks for sharing your review!

Amazing!

I am new to twinkle apothecary and ordered some samples of items. This is one sample I purchased which I intend to get a full-size version of (actually, I intend to get full-size versions of them all!)
But, this stuff is amazing! I am always looking for a quick and easy lip color that isn't "too much", isn't sticky, and will last awhile. After trying a multitude of lip stains, long-lasting matte glosses, and even chapsticks, I can finally say I've found my lip color. This is perfect for a fair-skinned person such as myself.

Thank you and I love all of your products so far!

Omg, yay! That’s so great to hear. I’m so glad you’re loving the stain and everything else. Thank you!

Magic in a Bottle

For someone who doesn't wear makeup, this stain gives the perfect blush color. It is part of my everyday morning routine. It gives me the perfect amount of color to make me look like I'm fully awake and ready to tackle the day!

I love this stuff! It makes a gorgeous blush in a color that I just couldn't find in the other brand I usually order. It lasts on my cheeks and look snatural nad lovey.

Subscriptions

The Surprise Scent Monthly, Off the Menu, and Collect them All Club subscriptions work the same way. To sign up, place your order by the 14th of each month by 12 pm US central time. The boxes (or envelopes) will ship on the 15th, or next business day if the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday.

Ordering after the 14th at noon puts you on the list for the next month's box.

Example: To sign up for a January Subscription box, you can order anytime between December 14th at 12:00 pm - January 14th at 11:59 am.

Ordering on January 14th at 12:00 pm or after will sign you up for the February box.

What's in the next box: The next month's Off the Menu item and a hint for the upcoming Surprise Scent will be revealed on the respective product pages after the 14th at noon each month. Be sure to check the product pages on the afternoon of the 14th to see what's in the next month's box, especially if you are not subscribed to my email list or push notifications!

You will always be charged for the next month's box each month on the same day (and exact time) that you placed your original order. If you would like to cancel or skip a month, you'll need to do so before your charge date. If you are not able to cancel before you're charged, simply email me to be refunded any time before I make the products on the afternoon of the 14th.

If you sign up for multiple subscription boxes (fun!) I will ship them all together to you on the 15th and refund any excess shipping fees.

For regular subscribe-and-save recurring product orders, your item will ship within 1-5 business days from the time you place your order.

Split-shipment policy: If you are ordering other, non-subscription items at the same time as your subscription box (Off the Menu, Surprise Scent, Collect Them All Club,) and you would like to receive your non-subscription items before the 15th, please place a separate order. I can only double-ship your order if the other items in your order qualify for free shipping on their own. If you've ordered enough to qualify for free shipping but want me to hold the other items to ship at the same time as your subscription products, great! Feel free to leave a note with your order and let me know!

All subscriptions are self-service.

How to cancel: You may cancel your order any time before your next charge date by logging into your account and clicking on the "My Subscriptions" button. If you are unable to cancel before you're charged, please email me to be refunded ASAP, before I make and ship your product. I cannot refund products that have already been made and/or shipped.

How to edit: To cancel, pause, switch items, add additional products, notes, or coupons to your subscription orders and to edit your subscription shipping address, simply log into your account and click on the "My Subscriptions" button. The process for editing your recurring order in the portal is so easy! If you are unable to access your account for any reason, please email me and I'm happy to help.

If you move: you are responsible for updating your shipping address before your next charge date. Orders shipped to the wrong address will not be refunded or replaced. I am happy to help you update your address, but you will need to email me before your order ships!

PLEASE NOTE: Updating your subscription order address is a SEPARATE ACTION from updating the default address on your Twinkle customer account. Update both to make sure you get your order. The subscription order address can be edited in the subscription portal (accessed by clicking on the "my subscriptions" button.)
