👩‍🏫 instructions 👩‍🏫 

Apply with fingertips, a sponge, or a makeup brush

Can be used anywhere on face or body. 

For more color payoff, dig into the balm with a finger, brush, or sponge. 

Note that these are safe for use on the eyes, but they are a thicker, glossy texture and will probably crease in the fold of our eyelid. Blend with your fingertips and/or apply a light layer of translucent mattifying powder over the crease for more hold!

    • Skincare Questions

      I designed each product in the Twinkle Apothecary skincare collection to balance and heal all skin, no matter the "type." You can't go wrong, but always try a sample first just in case! Please read the full product details for all the information you need to know to make a purchasing decision.

      I recommend everyone start with the Travel Skincare Set ($69) to get a generous sample of a complete Twinkle routine. (Cleanse, tone, moisturize.) Once you have a regular skincare routine in place, you can expand your collection by exploring the large Skincare Sets ($129) targeted to individual skin types.

    My new Favorite!

    I ordered Mother of Pearl highlight balm and I absolutely love it! I use it on my cheeks, eyes and to contour. Please don't ever discontinue! I finally have found the perfect color for my fair skin and freckles. 5 Stars!

    Great everyday eyeshadow 🥰

    I love using the eye tints as a part of my morning skin care & low make up routine. The moisturizing balm is so soft and gentle on my lids and the soft glow that the pigments leave are the perfect something to add sparkle to a natural look. Absolutely a favorite! ✨

    I use my highlight balm

    I use my highlight balm as an eyeshadow and it is so easy to apply. It feels great and has just the right amount of shimmer.

    The color is lovely. It

    The color is lovely. It gives a pretty flushed glow on the cheeks and a hint of color on the lips.

    Beautiful color and consistency

    I love these even more than the lip and cheek tint. Once you really dig into this (I stir it up with a toothpick) you’ll get to experience the creamy, rich color that you don’t get if you just rub the top. Fire opal is a beautiful rosy pink as first swipe, but is easy to build. I’m really picky about lip balms, but this is perfect!
