        Product FAQs

        What is the shelf life? 

        Shimmer balms will stay fresh for approximately one year. 

        Do they have good staying power? 

        This isn't an all-day formula, but they do wear well on lips, cheeks, and eyes. There will probably be some creasing in the eye lid, but it's an easy fix - just tap and blend with your fingertip. Reapply on your lips as needed after eating and drinking. 

        Should I choose the balm or the powder?  

        It depends on your needs.

        The balms are good for all skin-types and won't clog pores.

        The powders have a brighter color payoff while the balms are more sheer. 

        However, the balms add more texture and moisture to your skin while the powders are weightless. 

        If you have hooded eye lids, you may prefer the powder on your eyes. 

        Or, you may prefer to layer the powders and balms together on your cheeks and eyes. 

        Obviously, if you're looking for a lip product, go with the balm.

        The possibilities are truly endless.

        Twinkle is my Best natural make up source

        The new shimmer balm is in the cutest tube and it is easy to use. I love the way it looks on my cheeks and lips. I ordered the ruby and just a smudge on the cheeks and lips and I’m off.

        Aren't the new tubes so fun to use?! So glad you're loving them, thanks for the review!

        The shimmer balms are my favorite!

        The shimmer balms are one of my favorite multi-purpose products -- I use mine as lip gloss, cheek color, and sometimes even eye color! Love the ability to minimize my makeup collection with these beautiful multi-purpose products made with healthy ingredients.

        Wonderful! I'm so glad you're loving using the shimmer balms to minimize and glow! Thanks for the great review!

        Perfect lip tint for a preteen

        I purchased the Ruby shimmer tube for my 12-year old daughter as a stocking stuffer, and she uses it almost every day. It's the perfect subtle tint for her, but it's a buildable color for me when I've borrowed it. Will definitely be purchasing more colors in the tube.

        I'm so glad to know that this is the perfect color for your daughter - how fun is that?! I hope you both continue to enjoy it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

        LOVE!

        I just got the mother of pearl and Ruby shimmer balms in a tube and I LOVE them! The colors are so so pretty on and what’s even more, they feel amazing. So soft and nourishing. I don’t think I’ve ever had a lipstick that feels nourishing too. Pretty amazing! Love love love 💓

        Thank you for letting me make them for you! I hope they continue to serve you well!

        Keep coming back for more

        I started with Ginger Snap shimmer balm on sale last season, and I was quickly hooked, as it is the most beautiful, everyday, buildable color for my minimal daily routine. I have a fair, neutral skin tone. Seeing in a review that someone with fair skin said she loved Mother of Pearl, I came back for that. It is really lovely to wear over Ginger Snap or by itself! The smooth consistency of these balms is luxurious, and it is amazing that it's "makeup" but also skincare!

        This makes me so happy to hear! So glad you're loving the balms in multiple colors!
