Shimmer Powders 💖

$ 4.00

These shimmery loose makeup powders are multipurpose glow makers. Use them as eyeshadow, or blush, dust them on your body, or add them to any DIY beauty application you can dream up!


  • 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 


  • Rose quartz is a light frosted pink/gold highlight 
  • Amethyst shimmer 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 


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

Can I see more swatches?

ï»żThis (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: be sure to 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!

  • 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.

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!

Love Shimmer Powder

My Skin Tone: Deep/Warm

Fire Opal is a great every day shade for me. It creates a soft brown/red sunset look and is very easy to blend.

I love the Diamond shimmer for days when I want sparkles with no color. Highly recommend Diamond Balm for all over highlight! ✹

I use these as eye

I use these as eye shadows. I’m working my way to collect them all, and they’re all I use at the point. I recently bought Moonstone, which is more out there for me, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites!

tin oxide (CI 77861)
Love the shimmer powders!

I love the shimmer powders! I just bought the fire opal and love it. I thought it would be too red, but it actually blends really beautifully with my skin and looks great.

These Are Well Crafted

I love the sandstone and the ginger snap together. The sandstone goes on with so much depth, the ginger snap adds the perfect contrast and sets of my brown eyes really well! Would highly recommend.
