Help & FAQ's

You've got questions? We've got answers. 

Ordering Winky Lux as a gift this year? Great choice! As always, the holiday season is a busy time for online shopping + shipping. Between the measures everyone is taking to ensure safety amid COVID-19, and the intense volume carriers are working through, you may experience some shipping delays that are out of Winky Lux's control.

To combat these delays as best we can, we have increased our staff and are working diligently to get your product boxed and passed off to the carrier within 24 hours of you placing your order. If possible, we still recommend ordering your Winky Lux products a little earlier than usual to ensure your gifts arrive on time (and get ahead on your holiday shopping, too!).

      • Q: I have sensitive skin! Can I use Winky Lux products?

        A: Winky Lux uses the highest quality ingredients available. Products are free of nasties and irritants. Our founder Natalie has extremely sensitive skin and personally tests everything before it's available for sale. That said, everyone's skin is very different so please discontinue any product that irritates you immediately and contact a doctor as soon as possible. 

        Q: Do Winky Lux products expire or go bad?

        A: All makeup products expire unless they are made of twinkies (which you shouldn't put on your face). Please reference the product box for expiration dates. Typically Winky Lux products have a two-year shelf life. 

        Q: Do you test on animals?

        A: Big No. All of our products are certified cruelty free.

        Q: Are your products vegan?

        A: While most of our products are vegan, our Glossy Boss Lip Glosses are made with beeswax which is not a vegan ingredient. We chose this ingredient for now because it’s very safe and effective, however we are working on a synthetic replacement that will just be as good in the future #science. For a list of vegan products please click here.

        Q: Where are your products made?

        A: Our products are made in the USA, China, Italy, and Canada.

        Q: Are your products gluten-free?

        A: Our products have no gluten in the ingredients and are produced in a clean, controlled environment where no food is produced. However we do not have a gluten free certification. We may take steps to get this in the future.

        Q: Are your products fragrance-free?

        A: While we tend to use mostly natural food flavors for sensory experience (example: natural vanilla in glosses) we do use fragrance in some products. Feel free to email us at winky@winkylux.com and we can elaborate based on the particular product.

        Q: What is the confetti made of in the Confetti Balm?

        A: It is made of mica and pigment. Both are safer, more sustainable alternatives to plastic glitter. It gently dissolves into a light shimmer when applied.

        Q: Can I get samples?

        A: Most of the time you can get a free sample each time you shop! Make sure to select the sample in your cart and add it to your order. Sample selection changes from time to time, so be on the lookout for new samples. Also, due to limited nature of the free samples, we are not able to reship samples if they arrive damaged, if you received the wrong one, or if one is missing from your order.

If you’ve used Afterpay before, just log into your Afterpay account! Then follow the steps to complete your order — yes, it’s that easy! Typically, the first installment is paid at checkout, and the remaining 3 are made every 2 weeks (but don’t worry, your Winky Lux order will still ship out once your order is processed!). Please note, all items in your shopping bag must be eligible for Afterpay, and the order value must be between $35 and $1000. You will receive an instant approval decision on your order at checkout.

        A: Nope! There are no fees associated with the account as long as installments are paid on time, according to the payment schedule (provided at the time of order approval). If you have an overdue payment, Afterpay automatically applies a grace period (usually 10 days unless otherwise noted) without you having to do anything. Late fees are incurred if payment is not made within the disclosed grace period.
