Juniper Seed Mercantile's lip glosses feel so creamy and delicious going on. Super moisturising too.
Here we have Boysenberry, named for its colour - the deepest tone of the lip glosses Juniperseed seed have made so far. It is something between a lip gloss and a lip stick - less sparkly than the other colours, and a tad darker, a great colour for any complexion if you are looking for something a little more dressed up without going full on opaque. I absolutely LOVE this colour, it really is my new favourite thing :).
It is lightly flavoured with vanilla and bergamot, sweetened with stevia and coloured with powdered mica and oxides. Completely natural and perfect for anyone with sensitivities to artificial flavours. The gloss uses real vanilla absolute, not fragrance or flavour oil.
Please note these glosses are very subtle compared to what you might expect from a commercial lip gloss with lots of added ingredients. Think more of a tinted balm with a shimmer! The darker colours, plum and boysenberry give more colour.
A note from Tiffany at Juniperseed Mercantile:
"You might think lip balm is just lip balm. Who really knows the difference between brands? But I have been told over and over again, this lip balm is the best my customers have ever tried. I didn't really set out to make the world's best lip balm. I just tweaked my recipe again and again until it came out just the way I like it. Turns our everyone else likes it just that way too!

Lovely stuff - very silky smooth and a deep colour which you don't always find with 'natural' lip glosses. Nice packaging too.Ariana
The colour is lovely, and does leave your lips feeling nice. Only thing to be mindful of is that the tube is push up, rather than twist as with plastic lip balms, but that is very quick to get used to!Vicky
