        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.

        Yet another winner

        I added the ruby shimmer to my collection, and it is a gorgeous, buildable berry. It's very moisturizing for a tinted lip balm, but still works beautifully as a cheek color. The tubes look small at first, but the size is deceiving - my tube of mother of pearl has lasted for months and there is still plenty left. Can't go wrong with these little cuties.

        Aren't they just so cute and fun to use?! So glad you're loving the color - thank you!

        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!

        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.)

        Leave a note

        To leave a note at checkout - add the items you'd like to purchase to your cart. When you're ready to checkout, click on the shopping cart icon at the upper right of the screen. You'll see a box where you can type in a note. Type away!

        Make sure to press the black "checkout" button when you're ready to checkout so your note doesn't get cut off. If you select one of the express-pay buttons (PayPal, G-Pay, ShopPay, etc.,) your note will get cut off.

        You can still pay using one of the express options but you'll need to press the black checkout button first!
