  1. Really yum, but what the red came from? It's so bright and vivid, lovely! I was thinking of infusing some dried beetroot, just not sure about the smell!?

  2. Hi, Maja, the color comes from alkanet root infused in olive oil. I think beetroot might work as well. It's worth trying. Thanks so much for the idea!

  3. Oooh, so red from alkanet? Mine goes from light to darker pink, never red! Hmm, quite strange! I think beet root would result with really RED red! Thanks for revealing your 'secret colour'!

    1. Hi Maja, mine's pink too, I think the photo adds a bit of contrast, but it's full pink :) Also, it doesn't color the lips. I think for that you should use mineral oxides.
