You don't have to have a gluten sensitivity to use Red Apple Lipstick
products! If you like quality makeup, especially quality makeup without tons of added crap, then you should take a look at Red Apple, because their lipsticks, lip liners, lip glosses and balm are simply awesome.
And all of their products are also paraben-free, allergen-free, soy-free, cruelty-free, and vegan!
When founder and president Jay Harper offered to send me a bunch of products to try out, I was excited, but I will admit that I was a little skeptical--that's a lot of things to keep out of the products! will the quality be the same as regular lipstick? will it smell weird? will it feel weird?
But the products he sent me blew my mind. Today, we'll look at the lipsticks!
Check out those beauties! The Rallye balm
($19.50, sale price $15.00) is fragrance-free, sheer balm with SPF 8 that moisturizes and protects lips. The three lipsticks are on the right ($17.50 each). Ruby Slippers
is a pretty shimmery sheer pinkish red. Not frosty, just pretty! Strawberry Lips
is a sheer brick red. Red!
is a true blue-based red. It's more pigmented than the other two, and will leave a nice stain on your lips.
I'm not a huge lipstick person, but I really like these. Although applying Red! takes a little precision, the other two shades can easily be applied without a mirror, which makes them just as handy as my usual lip gloss. AND, unlike a lot of lipsticks, they're nicely moisturizing, they're long lasting, and the pigmentation is totally buildable! Although the price is mid-range (comparable to department store products), and the packaging could be a little fancier, I'm super happy with these lipsticks and would definitely consider buying additional shades. And there are frequently deals (discounts for signing up for their newsletter, or for doing their lipstick exchange
!)They guarantee 100% satisfaction too :)
Any way you look at it, these lipsticks are FABULOUS for everyone, gluten-intolerant or not. I'll also be reviewing their glosses and lip liners soon :)Lipgloss+Spandex rating:
