What our experts say...
The branding and packaging is modern, unique and fresh. The formula feels comfortable and soothing, and the tint is beautiful, subtle and flattering on many different tones. It’s clearly well-considered and features lots of gorgeous natural ingredients that I already know and love. The local manufacture has major cache in 2021 too. I was impressed with the longevity of the efficacy in the formula. The accessibility of Biode’s mission is to be applauded. The passion for education, and making the consumer a part of the change, rather than only doing it for them, feels like a perfect approach for now.

The nourishing oil-based texture once it blends into the lip, as well as the subtle, complementary tint for that “no-makeup” makeup look was fantastic. Biode cares about vigorous testing to ensure their ingredients and end products are healthy for us, and good for the environment.
A surprising little lip gem – mandarin is such a nice change for this tinted lip balm. Gorgeous packaging, I find myself reaching for it when I want to add a colour pop to lips (and cheeks). Comfortable on the lips with a wearable warm bronze tint, I can see how this could become a fave. As a makeup artist I haven’t come across this colour in a natural lip tint before — and I am addicted. The cardboard tube gets a little well-loved in handbags/travel but that is not a deal breaker as it’s super cute and recyclable/home compostable. Thanks Biode for a fab little multi-tasker.

Adding moisture as well as a flattering light wash of colour to my lips and a tingle of peppermint, this is a gorgeous lip balm. I love that it can double as a natural looking cheek stain and is made of mostly organic ingredients and packaged in a home compostable tube. It’s gained a privileged position in my handbag so I’m never without it!
