I'd like to begin this post by saying when it comes to beauty products I'm not easily impressed. Not in the slightest. I'm a tough customer, HA.
I recently had the opportunity to try two lipsticks from a beauty company I had never heard of before, Red Apple Lipstick, being the curious girl that I am, I jumped at the chance! Not because I'm a beauty junkie(quite the opposite actually, but because of their claims).
Specifically, Red Apple claims to produce very high quality products without all the harsh ingredients other cosmetic companies use. That peaked my interest more than anything!
Before I we get to the review, let's just think about how HUGE the beauty industry is. How many companies and products there are worldwide. TONS. I feel like it's an almost incomprehensible number.
It's really hard to fathom just how many there are. I can't keep up and really have no desire to. This girl finds products that work and I stick with them (Why fix what's not broken? Right?) Also, I'm not much of a makeup girl to begin with. A dab will do ya is my motto. I like to look like me, not an enhanced painted flamboyant version of me. I like the fresh faced 'girl next door' look.
From the first swipe I was in LOVE. This lipstick feels amazing on your lips - really hydrating. It's mineral based so the first coat is pretty sheer but you can adjust how saturated you want it by adding coats.
All of their products are paraben, gluten, soy, lead, and cruelty FREE. I'm amazed by that because of how fabulous they are! I half expected them to not feel good on my lips or taste or smell weird. Nope. None of that. This girl is SOLD. And I LOVE supporting companies that are environmentally conscious and MADE IN THE USA. Did I mention they also have a 100% money back guarantee so if you don't love what you buy just return it.
I see lots of new lipsticks in my future HAHA.
If you buy and try their products I'd love for you to share! Or if you've already tried Red Apple I'd love to hear your thoughts!
I can't say enough about how amazing this lipstick is so just go buy a tube (or 5!) for yourself or buy it as a gift for your girlfriend, sister, cousin, mother.....then let me know what you think!
