The Product: Red apple Lipstick Mayberry ($24 USD)
The package I received came in a little linen pouch. The actual lipstick comes in a regular plastic case, with the logo engraved on the side.
The company offers many colors I decided to try out the Mayberry color as it looked like a great 'my lips but better' option for the fall season. On their website they offer swatch pictures on different skin tones - which is a great feature as lip colors looks vastly different amongst different skin tones.
The color itself is described as "dusty rose with a hint of berries." The first ingredient in the lipstick if sunflower oil - which is a great skin conditioner and is high in vitamin-e.
Full ingredients list: Helianthus Annus - 100% pure organic cold pressed, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii, Synthetic Beeswax, All Natural Gluten Free - Soy Free - Corn Free Vitamin E Tocopheryl Acetate, May Contain: Titanium Dioxide ,Manganese Violet, Mica, Iron Oxide.
Color: I really like the color of this lipstick - I think it's a great universal color. For my natural berry lips, it offers a 'bare lips but better look'. For fair skin, I think it would bring out the blue tones in the lipstick, and those with darker skin, it would offer a nude color. This particular color did have some shimmer to it, which wasn't too noticeable when first applied but I could definitely see the speckles of glitter as it wore out.
Formula: The formula itself was moisturizing, after a 3-4 hours wear, I did find the formula a little drying and definitely time to re-apply, or apply an additional moisturizer. The color itself did leave a faint stain on my lips which I enjoy.
Overall, I was impressed with red apple lipstick. I think that their ingredient list was impressive, and I do like their color range. For those who are gluten sensitive - this is definitely a line to look into. I do think they offer a great range of colors and I especially like that you can grab samples of the colors themselves so you don't commit to purchasing a full size. Given the price, these lipsticks may be out of reach for some given the price. In comparison MAC lipsticks are $19 CDN). For future purchases, I would definitely purchase multiples for a better price on their lipsticks (as they offer discounts when purchasing multiples)
