Red Apple Lipstick ~ Lipstick Review and Swatches ~ Part II

Swatches on white paper, photographed in natural, indoor lighting, no flash

Today I am reviewing and swatching additional Red Apple Lipstick (RAL) colors. Unfortunately, some images (at the end of the post) came out a bit dark. The weather this time of year can be tricky.

Each item tested was from a $3.50 sample that I purchased from RAL. The full-sized product might give slightly different results. I tested all shades on clean lips, without primer, balm, or lip pencil.
  • Crush on Me. RAL describes this lipstick as "A powerful violet-based bright pink. It packs a bold punch with a hint of glitter." Here's what I see:
    • Color: Light, muted, blue-based pink with lilac undertones and icy shimmer. 
    • Coverage: Semi opaque. It applied a bit patchy, and my lips are in good condition (no flakes).
    • Texture: Slippery and soft. After I rubbed the pigment with my fingertip, I ended up with stalactites and stalagmites when I spoke, similar to what I get from certain lip gloss formulas. A shame.
    • Finish: I didn't see much sparkle, not even in the sun. The shimmer is refined. Powerful? Perhaps on people with low lip pigment. On me this lipstick is demure. When layered, the finish remains glossy, but it also takes on a bit of a 60s vibe, due to white undertones.
    • Longevity: Color fades within an hour, as this formula has no traction. 
    • Overall: If you love cool-toned lip gloss, consider sampling Crush On Me. The color looks gorgeous swatched on white paper, but it lightened my lip pigment. 
  • Boys N Berries. RAL describes this lipstick as "Violet, fuchsia, pink, berry sparkle." I see it almost the same way:
    • Color: Soft damson plum with pink shimmers. Quite beautiful, in fact.
    • Coverage: Sheer.
    • Texture: Rather oily. Less like the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine formula than a super silicon-y lip gloss. The texture reminds me of a discontinued line of MUFE lip glosses. Very slippery.
    • Finish: Standing in natural light, especially full sun, brings out the shimmer, which is even more refined than Crush On Me. If layered, the finish stays glossy.
    • Longevity: Fades quickly, as it has zero traction. If you have pale lip pigment, you might need a lip pencil to keep the color anchored down. If you have medium or dark pigment, this one might not show up on you.
    • Overall: My hands-down favorite of the eight I tried in this set. However, I might pass on the full size because I already own a few lipsticks that are the same colors that last longer: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Bonheur, Dior Fashion Week, and MAC Plumful and Milani Mode (both in the lustre formula). Each of the alternative lipsticks has better staying power, but Boys N Berries is a lovely, youthful, summer shade.
  • Petal Pusher. RAL describes this lipstick as "Satiny smooth ... hot pink." I concur.
    • Color: Mid-toned, moderately-bright geranium pink with a yellow base. Cool neutral. As I had imagined, Petal Pusher is lighter, more muted, and less red than its vibrant sister Mix & Mingle.
    • Coverage: Semi opaque.
    • Texture: Cream. Not as slippery as Crush on Me and Boys N Berries.
    • Finish: Shiny with subtle gold shimmers. If layered, remains glossy.
    • Longevity: Two hours. Fades unevenly and leaves behind a pink stain. (From my hand swatches shown later on, Petal Pusher and Rebel stained my skin—I needed to use makeup remover). When applied with a brush, lip pencil was not needed.
    • Overall: I liked everything about this lipstick except the color, which was slightly too bright and warm for my complexion. Petal Pusher might be ideal on cool/neutral skin tones (e.g., Light Summers and Bright Winters). 
  • Secrets. "A brilliant sheen with a smooth finish ... pink/fuschia ... with a deep gold shimmer"
    • Color: The pronounced gold undertones turn this pink berry to brown. Neutral, possibly leaning more cool than warm (overall temperature will depend on existing pigment and skin undertone).
    • Coverage: Semi sheer.
    • Texture: Creamy with a pronounced gritty feel. 
    • Finish: Shimmery and shiny at first but dulls to bronze.
    • Longevity: Under 3 hours. No stain.
    • Overall: For neutral skin tones that handle gold well (Soft Summer, Soft Autumn), Secrets might provide a beautiful daytime look.
  • Audrey. "Pink-based neutral shade ... has no sparkle, but amazing shine."
    • Color: Orange-based pink.
    • Coverage: Semi opaque, fairly pigmented.
    • Texture: Cream at first, but warmed up on my skin and became quite migratory. 
    • Finish: Lots of shine, no shimmer. 
    • Longevity: Lasted about 1 hour before it bled into lip lines. I'd recommend a good lip primer and pencil.
    • Overall: I so wanted to love this shimmer-free lipstick, but it was the warmest of the 8 colors I tried. Perhaps a True Autumn tone.  
  • Plum Sexy Crazy. "Rich red/plum color, it takes on a gold glimmer when applied."
    • Color: Warm bronzed plum. Very pretty.
    • Coverage: Semi opaque, fairly pigmented.
    • Texture: Satin. Dry and crumbly. (Perhaps I received an older sample.)
    • Finish: Almost metallic.
    • Longevity: Four hours.
    • Overall: I did not love this formula or texture, but the full-sized tube might perform better than the sample. This color might harmonize with higher-contrasting, warm or neutral skin tones (Dark Autumns/Winters, muted Winters) or perhaps higher-contrasting Soft Summers who can handle deeper pigments and the gold undertones.
  • Berry Blast. "Blend of raspberry and strawberry with bronze/gold glitter."
    • Color: Warm copper berry.
    • Coverage: Semi opaque, fairly pigmented.
    • Texture: Cream at first, but warmed up on my skin and became as migratory as Audrey. 
    • Finish: Metallic bronze shimmer.
    • Longevity: About 1 hour before it bled outside vermilion border.
    • Overall: Best suited for warm/warm-neutral skin tones, but use a lip brush and apply in thin layers to avoid bleeding.
  • Rebel. "Blue-based red"
    • Color: More brown than blue based, similar to MAC Viva Glam I (original) but warmer.
    • Coverage: Opaque and highly pigmented.
    • Texture: Cream.
    • Finish: Shiny unless blotted down to a stain. 
    • Longevity: Bulletproof.
    • Overall: Very pretty, not for shy types. I could see Rebel on dramatic Soft Summers and Dark Winters.

Red Apple Lipstick's sheer, rosy pinks (Crush on Me and Boys N Berries) look nice with the True Summer palette

Crush on Me and Boys N Berries look good with Soft Summer, too

Boys N Berries seems to be a chameleon, perhaps because it's sheer. On my lips it was cool toned, but swatched on white paper it looked more muted, though not warm.

If you were on Red Apple Lipstick's web site, you might have noticed that Boys N Berries was close in tone to Secrets, with Boys N Berries looking more sparky and Secrets looking like the lighter of the two.


That's not what I found. Swatched together on white paper, Secrets is darker and warmer, almost a tiny bit bronzed, due to the gold shimmer. It was the opposite of what I expected based on the RAL images.

For comparison, I added Pinkle Twinkle (reviewed here) to the pink parade. Pinkle Twinkle appears almost grey, by comparison.

I am completely undecided as to what skin tones these three might flatter. Possibly all cool/soft skin tones, and almost definitely the softer, more muted cool-neutral skins (Soft Summer).

Bottom line: If you can find a good color in this line of lipsticks, I think you will be happy.

Red Apple Lipstick Cranberry Magic, Mix & Mingle, and Pinkle Twinkle ~ Lipstick Review and Swatches ~ Part I

Today's review features three lipsticks from Red Apple Lipstick lipstick ($23.50, 4.5g), a mineral-based brand in Texas.

I had my eye on Boys N Berries and Petal Pusher, but those colors have been out of stock for a few weeks. Instead, I chose what appeared to be three cool-toned shades:

  • Red (Cranberry Magic)
  • Deep pink (Mix & Mingle)
  • Muted pink (Pinkle Twinkle)

I believe all three of these lipsticks, which are newer in the RAL lineup, all have the same formula. They are reported to be free of gluten, soy, fragrance, and parabens. There is no ingredient list on the box.

Texture: Smooth and creamy with a satin dry down. My lips felt moist for the first couple hours.

Finish: Satin. I'm not sure now many formulas Red Apple Lipstick makes, but from what I have read, some of their lipsticks are glossy, some are sheer, and others have enough shimmer to make them appear metallic or bronzed. Some are also lightly fragranced, but you can filter results for nut and fragrance free lipsticks of those ingredients bother you.

Longevity: When the color faded, it did so fairly evenly, not from the center. A single application lasted around 4 hours before the color needed refreshing. The two darker colors left a modest stain with no bleeding or feathering; however a couple samples I purchased did feather—badly. I will describe them in an upcoming post.

RAL suggests applying their lipsticks at 1/4 to 1/2 intensity (e.g., not straight from bullet to lips), but I found that difficult to do with Cranberry Magic and Mix & Mingle, as both are extremely pigmented.  Using a lip blush and blotting put to a stain left some seriously vibrant color. I found the easiest way for me to wear the darker shades was to dot the bullet a few times directly on my lips and then blend/sheer out with my fingertip and some balm. I used their Rallye Balm (reviewed here), but I prefer Julie Hewett (here).

The following photo shows Cranberry Magic, Mix & Mingle, and Pinkle Twinkle blotted on white paper, to show the colors and undertones as accurately as possible.

None of the three lipsticks matches my 12 Tone True Summer palette, but I do like the colors, all of which are cool or at least cool-neutral. Cranberry Magic, a red berry, seems to harmonize best with TSu hues, but its saturation pushes it over to the Winter side. It also has the most shimmer of the three, but it isn't that detectable when worn sheer.

Mix & Mingle is fuchsia, whereas I prefer a clear hot pink. Yes, there's a difference. Fuchsia has red undertones, which add warmth. Mix & Mingle does not harmonize well with the True Summer roses above, but it fits in fairly well with the Light Summer pinks below. Applied full strength from the bullet, it might even suit higher-contrasting Bright Winter/Bright Spring complexions. I wish I had Petal Pusher to compare, as I have the feeling Petal Pusher might be more flattering on cool, low/medium-contrasting complexions.

Compared to one of the Light Summer sleeves, Mix & Mingle is fairly good at the mid range of the sleeve. However, the deep pigment makes me think it's more suitable for the Bright seasons.

Pinkle Twinkle is a mid-toned, blue-based, greyed-pink lavender. I was disappointed in the gold shimmer, which adds warmth. The color reminds me a bit of Dior Lip Addict Extreme in Incognito, although I see no obvious beige in Pinkle Twinkle, so it isn't quite a nude. Overall, this color seems to harmonize best with the more muted Soft Summer palette. Its gold overtones definitely direct it toward the autumnal season.

Next to the Soft Summer pinks and roses, only Pinkle Twinkle harmonizes. Cranberry Magic and Mix & Mingle look garish by comparison.

Buying lipstick sight unseen can be hard, though most of us have done it. Red Apple Lipstick lets you create your own sample pack. Each pack comes with an instruction card and a brush. I found the brush useless, though I did use the non-business end to scoop the lipstick out of the bubble.

Red Apple Lipstick samples cost $3.50 each. They are 1/8" thick and contain slightly more product than a sample from White Rabbit Beauty, which Jean sends in an airtight pot for $1. One RAL blister is enough for one day if sampling a sheer color. Theoretically, I could have gotten a few days usage out of the more pigmented RAL lipsticks, but the "seal" on the blister is just a paper sticker. Once peeled off (easy to mangle/doesn't re-stick), the lipstick is exposed to the environment. If you have empty screw-top pots, such as sample jars used by most mineral brands, consider transferring your RAL lipstick samples to the pot to keep your $3.50 sample from drying out.

Bottom line: A worthy new entrant to an ocean of lipstick choices. I wish the company were more transparent with their ingredients—especially as the are claiming to be a certified gluten-free company. No ingredient list forces consumers to take it on faith, which is not an ideal business model.

Red Apple Lipstick's Rallye Balm ~ Review

I am a self proclaimed lip balm junkie, as you might have witnessed on this blog here and here and here. I recently picked up Red Apple Lipstick (RAL) Rallye Balm ($15) after searching for certified gluten-free companies.

The lip balm is firm and creamy (not greasy), and it claims to be vegan, gluten free, soy free, and paraben free. Its Vitamin E is suspended in cold-pressed castor seed oil to nourish lip tissue and ward off free radicals. It also has an SPF of 8. Unfortunately, I have to take it on faith, as no ingredient list is provided on the packaging. Only this:

My lips were already in good condition, considering it's been one of the coldest, driest winters in years. I have been using Julie Hewett Camellia Lip Balm for a few years, and if my lips get a bit flaky after wearing matte lipstick for several days, I exfoliate by applying a bit of balm on a cotton swab and gently rubbing the cotton over top and bottom lips—a trick I learned from a Lisa Eldridge video.

The reviews for Rallye Balm were so overwhelmingly positive, I couldn't wait to receive it. Was the love real or hype? The minute it arrived, I practically bathed in it. I swiped it on my lips and outside the vermilion border. I also used it around my nose, which was sore from a recent cold.

Bottom half of the tube has a nubby texture for a no-slip grip

After a few days, the raw skin around my nose healed very quickly, but within a week of daily use on my lips, I was disappointed to discover that something in the ingredients, perhaps the physical sunscreen, irritated the skin around my mouth. To be clear, my lips felt nourished, smooth, and flake free. It was the skin surrounding my lips, in the corners to be precise, that became red, itchy, and crusty. Thinking this issue must be related to something else, I used even more Rallye Balm to help heal the area. The more I used the more irritated that area became.

If I contain Rallye application to just my lips, I find it to be a very good lip balm. I also like to use it to sheer out highly-pigmented satin and matte lipsticks, such as RAL's Cranberry Magic.

Rallye Balm has no color or scent.

I also tried some of Red Apple Lipstick's suggested application tips.

Blush: I mixed Rallye Balm with Red Apple Lipstick's Mix & Mingle lipstick on the back of my hand. Then I used my fingertip to dot onto my cheeks and blend. I liked the result, which dried down to a satiny (non sticky) finish. Just a hint of clear, sheer pink that did not last more than an hour.

Eyeliner: I used the technique shown in the following video to make a "gel" eyeliner. Although it worked well, it smudged off within a couple hours. I also don't know how my eyes would react if I used Rallye balm at the lash roots every day. Maybe it would be fine—a lot of people use castor oil as a lash growth serum. But given how the skin around my mouth reacted, I don't feel up to the experiment.

Eyelid primer: It seems counterproductive to apply an oil-based product under powder eyeshadow, but I tried it nonetheless. I rubbed the bullet directly over my clean eyelids, let it sink in, smoothed it out with my fingertip, and then patted RAL's Pixie Dust eyeshadow as a base. If your eyelids are very oily, this method might not work for you. It worked OK on me, perhaps a touch tacky. I probably won't do it again, already loving how my Paula Dorf primer performs (reviewed here).

Bottom line: Rallye is a good lip balm, but I wish Red Apple Lipstick listed the ingredients on their packaging. For that reason, combined with the skin irritation, I won't repurchase.

Coming Soon: Red Apple Lipstick Review and Swatches

Red Apple Lipstick purchase ... all gluten free

Did the Everyday Beauty blog drop off your feed for lack of activity? Part of my silence the last year has been due to work. But I also hadn't been feeling my best. It became difficult to muster up the energy—let alone excitement—to put on my face and write about it.

Some of you know I stopped eating gluten a few years back. The dietary change initially improved my health in measurable ways, but about a year ago, my health started to backslide:  Allergies, skin rashes, low energy, etc.

Looking back, there were signs pointing to the problem. A Facebook friend had earlier mentioned that I should consider avoiding gluten in my beauty products. I started reading labels on my lipsticks (the #1 item to be gluten free if you are sensitive), and I thought I had verified that none contained unwanted ingredients, but I didn't know how extensive the "hidden gluten" list was. I also didn't think I needed to be as careful about other products. It's not as if I eat my shampoo.

... which was not an entirely true assumption. I touch my hair, and then my fingers could end up in my mouth, such as when rubbing on lip balm or eating fruit. I had been so careful to avoid eating gluten-containing foods, but I was still consuming hidden gluten via some of my beauty products.

When I began to pay closer attention to the ingredients that went into my shampoo, conditioner, styling products, moisturizer, serums, sunscreen, body care, and makeup, I found gluten lurking everywhere. I then quickly discovered how challenging it was to find 100% gluten free products.

I called the customer service department of every brand of beauty product I owned, and most of them said: "We don't add gluten to our products." What they said on the phone was sometimes different from what they'd put in an email (those that chose to respond to my queries).

I've spent the last several months researching and testing gluten-free skincare, hair care, and cosmetics. The challenge has been finding items that work for me. It seems that "natural" skin and hair care products favor the driest of dry skins and are loaded with essential oils, which my skin finds extremely irritating. I also don't want my only choice for makeup to be the muted, earthy tones so commonplace among mineral brands. I want skincare that feels cosmetically elegant. I want lipsticks and blushes that are skin-brightening and modern without a gritty, pasty texture.

Even armed with a list of dozens of nearly unpronounceable ingredient names (see bottom of this article for the full list), I learned that an ingredient list doesn't always tell the whole story. For example, pick up any lipstick box you have hanging around. What ingredient comes close to the end of the list? Tocopherol. That's vitamin E, a fat-soluble chemical that contains antioxidant properties. I learned that tocopherol is sometimes made from wheat germ oil. Sometimes it's not. However, the company doesn't always know whether their tocopherol comes from wheat, soy, rice, bran, or something else.

So where someone who is gluten sensitive but not officially celiac draw the line? Ideally, I would use only products from certified gluten-free companies, I don't think it's completely necessary. I am not entirely convinced that wheat germ oil used in cosmetics is problematic. It's been so purified and distilled surely the end result is inert. I'll just post the ingdedient list—only you can decide if it's worth the risk.

My next post will feature Red Apple Lipstick's Rallye Balm, a company that claims to be certified gluten free.
