Juniper Seed Mercantile's lip glosses feel so creamy and delicious going on. Super moisturising too.
Here we have the Frosted Rose - the medium tone of the three lip glosses. It is a nice bit of sparkle and pinkish rose tint, for those who want something just a little more than a plain lip balm. (Please compare to the other colours in the second photo). The lip tints are named for their colours not their flavours.
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 Juniper Seed 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!

Works ok as a lip balm, but definitely couldn't be described as a lip gloss. It nourishes, but it doesn't really gloss unfortunately. Also very little colour at all. Reply from The Plastic Free Shop: Thanks for taking the time to leave your review Lex, it is much appreciated. Yes, I agree the Frosted Rose is very subtle, and not like a commercial lip gloss - I will make this clearer in the description - more of a tinted lip balm for this one perhaps..?Lex
Bought mine in Rose as an everyday hint of colour ie lipstick! Good so far, lovely and moisturising, tastes great too! If you think of it as lipstick with slight shimmer that's about right. 4* given as could do with being slightly firmer in texture and a lipstick shape at end would be easier to apply.Judy
