Red Apple Lipsticks in New York & Sunkissed

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Have you heard of Red Apple Lipstick? I was recently contacted by this company to review some of their lipstick shades. If you're looking for a lipstick without gluten or parabens, Red Apple is your company. They are also soy free, dairy free and allergen free. Their lipsticks are also vegan, natural and cruelty free. Yet the lipsticks are still fantastic and come in a nice shade selection.

The lipsticks come packaged in a flat black tube with a nice bit of heft to it (nothing I hate more than lightweight lipsticks, for some reason). The glossy Red Apple logo and name are on the end and sides of the cap. I like that the tube has these small little raised beads all over to mark which part is the tube and which is the cap (and also helps opening in opening). Overall, really straight forwards and practical packaging.

The formula is nice, both have plenty of slip to them and are a bit glossy (Sunkissed more so than New York). The pigmentation is medium, buildable to opaque. New York doesn't really have a scent but Sunkissed is faintly sweet.

 Sunkissed. Though fiery red orange in the tube with ultra fine golden shimmer, I find that it leans almost coral on my lips.

New York. Nude-y pink in the tube, almost baby pink oh my lips.

I like both of these lipsticks quite a bit. Price wise, shades vary at either $17.50 or $23.50 (4.5g of product) which puts Red Apple in the medium range (and can be purchased here). However, if you have sensitivities to gluten or parabens, that price is well worth it!

I would love to see other finishes from Red Apple as I personally love matte lipsticks. Have you tried any of Red Apple's shades?
