I've already reviewed Red Apple Lipstick brand lipstick
, and also their lip pencils
, and now, on to the lipgloss ($18.50)! As with the lipstick and lipliners, these glosses are gluten-free, paraben-free, allergen-free, soy-free, cruelty-free, and vegan! I tried three shades from their regular line, Amor Caliente, Bridesmaid, and Metropolis.
is a shiny candy apple red with a nice shimmery sheen to it. It has medium-pigmentation. Bridesmaid
is a lightly pigmented hot pink with lots of sparkle. Metropolis
is a nude-pink with a shimmery sheen, low-medium pigmentation.
I love these. The formula is great--really smooth, not too thick and not too thin. The color stays for a decent amount of time, but it moisturizes for hours. These only have a faint fragrance--I can't quite place what it is, but I don't mind it at all, and I'm quite picky about how my makeup smells. I love
the large sponge applicator, and I love that you can easily see the color, and how much product remains. The packaging is a tad bit bigger than the average gloss. The biggest drawback is the price. But considering the quality, I'd say it's worth it. AAAAANNNNNDDDD when you participate in their lipstick exchange
, you can get them for only $11.99 (be sure to check out the details).
These are awesome. It's pretty tough to impress me when it comes to lip gloss, and I had honestly been pretty skeptical that these lipglosses would compare with department store products, but they absolutely hold their own! It'd be great to see more colors added to the line, especially some highly pigmented pinks or corals! I'm also pretty eager to try the new Peppermints lipglosses, since I love minty glosses.
