The Seeds of Colour range of multi-purpose balms are such a lovely idea. There are colours available in the range so far, and the balms are made from completely natural ingredients with absolutely nothing added, so the colours come from fruit and veg and the formulas are given their texture and consistency via carefully tweaking natural sources. Consequently, each balm has a shelf life once opened, because there really is nothing in there but organic produce!
The balms are housed in attractive metal tubes and there is a tube squeezer available to squeeze out every last bit. When you look at the colours you immediately think “lips” but they can be used on the eyes and cheeks too. The formula is very “Goldilocks;” not too rich, not too matte, just right, so you won’t end up with greasy eyes or overly shiny cheeks, but you’ll still get that balmy, hydrating feel on the lips.
The four colours available so far are (clockwise from left):
True Nude – a neutral brown tone
Berry Red – a deep claret
Warm Caramel – a deep brown that leans a little cool
Rose Pink – a muted, neutral pink
Predictably, Rose Pink is the shade that does it for me, but I also really like Berry Red and surprisingly, both the nudes shades are very natural on; I would normally never go near a deep brown like Warm Caramel, but on the lips is actually very pretty!
The full Seeds of Colour range is available now at £21 per balm. Find them here – link.
