Heads up!This product appears tiny because we ditched the lipstick tube (i.e. no packaging!). Balmies are the standard lipstick size at .12 oz.
The product is3-in-1 multi-use color for eyes, lips, and cheeks. Anywhere really.

They're wrapped in paper and rest in a recyclable carrying case.
How to UseApply directly to eyes, lips + cheeks and blend in with fingers.
PackagingTear the recyclable paper as needed and keep Balmie in its red, recyclable box. Boxes handmade from recycled trash by a women’s cooperative in Bali.

I am fair enough that many highlighters are darker than my skin. This one gives a perfect subtle glow that doesn't exaggerate wrinkles, lines or pores. I also use it on my eyelids. Love the ingredients and packaging. I often react with little bumps, but have had no problem with this, and I've been using it for a couple of months.
I love the fact that I can use this beauty product "guilt-free." The packaging is super-environmentally friendly, the product itself is cruelty-free and vegan, and the look - Wow! I've only used it as an eye shadow so far, but I plan also to try it as a facial highlighter. It adds a subtle shimmer to my eyelids that gives just the brightening and opening effect that I want. The look is fantastic for either daytime OR night-time wear. Magical! I will be coming back for more.
This product appealed to me because I prefer a simple makeup routine and I am working towards a more sustainable lifestyle. Frosting works great for all three cheeks, eye, and lips and I love using frosting as a highlight and on my eyelids. The wear is good and I appreciate that there are only 10 ingredients. Overall, I am glad I purchased frosting and plan to do so again in the future.
