Red Apple Lipstick Review and Swatches!

UPDATE: If you register today for Red Apple’s Christmas sale you will receive BOGO!! Here’s the facebook invite/link: Very tempted but…must…resist…money…necessary…

There’s been a ton of buzz around the Red Apple Lipstick brand, and rightly so. Sometimes these things are just hype, but sometimes it’s because the product is actually awesome! And that is the case with these lipsticks πŸ™‚

Red Apple Lipsticks are gluten free, vegan, and paraben free, and contain moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter and olive oil. The formula is different per lipstick, but they are all super pigmented, long-lasting, and feel creamy and moisturizing on. I’m not sure if the brand has caught on beyond the green beauty world, but if not it’s probably just a matter of time.

I bought three of their lipsticks as part of their ‘buy two get one half-off’ deal.

My color choices were Love My Kiss, Push Pop, and Boys ‘N Berries. Let’s take a look! Here are the tubes, and a swatch…

And here are the three colors on my lips (which are naturally quite pigmented). I was careful about the light here, and these are as true as I can get, color-wise.

Love My Kiss is the classic “my lips but better” color, and is the most wearable every-day shade. It’s a medium pinky-red, and I LOVE it. It’s creamy and very pigmented with a slight shimmer. I’ve had some compliments on this one!

Push Pop is quite a bold peach shade, with a lot of shimmer. I think I’d wear this more in summer/spring, but I love how it’s not too orange – more of a cantaloupe.

Boys ‘N Berries is my favorite formula-wise. It goes on more slick than the other two (maybe because one of the ingredients is olive oil?) and feels almost like a Maybelline lip butter, but with more pigment. It’s a gorgeous pink-mauve color, with silver sparkles. The sparkles are not overwhelming, but just right. I’ve been wearing this a lot, as it goes well with my newly purpleized hair, and it’s also perfect for fall. I also really love the smell – this is the only one that is scented, and (to my mind at least) it actually smells of berries!

With my cool skin tone, my favorite two are Love My Kiss and Boys ‘N Berries, but I think Push Pop will get more wear in the warmer months, and when my hair switches back to brown!

Which is your favorite? Have you tried any Red Apple Lippies yet, and if so, which ones are your favorites?

  1. I just posted an update about the Christmas sale…if you register for that (see link above) you get BOGO on lipsticks. I am soooo tempted! I love the shades Sweet Coraline and Hibiskiss. I’m holding out for the sale to see if there are any better offers (I think it starts November 17th).



  2. Push Pop looks great on you. I just received RAL colors in: Swoon, Mauve Me, Maven Mauve and Strawberry Lips. I have the Rallye Balm as well and I’m loving it. I think I’ll have to wait to get more during their next big sale.



    1. Thank you!! I’m gonna wear it more in Spring I expect. I’ve heard good things about Strawberry Lips, and recently I bought Audrey, but it’s not as pretty on me as (seemingly) the rest of the world…my lips are too dark I think. I’m still lovin’ “Love My Kiss,” the best πŸ™‚
