Do you ever read my blog and think, "man this girl puts a lot of chemicals on her face"? Well, if you do, then this is a review for you!
This is a review of two of the Red Apple Lipsticks that are stocked at Miss Pearl Store (shipping in Australia is free!). They retail for $28.50 each, which isn't cheap, but they are gluten free, paraben free, nut/tree nut free, fragrance free, soy free, and toxin free, cruelty free, vegan, and allergen free.
So if you have any sensitivities to gluten, nuts, or soy then you might want to check out this brand! There are also over 25 shades available which range from nudes, reds, pinks, oranges, and berry.

These come in simple black plastic packaging that has an almost studded design. I trialled the shades Coral Crush and Ruby Slippers.
Coral Crush is a beautiful dark coral brick shade that is a great alternative to a red. The formula itself is very smooth, comfortable and pigmented. Because these are quite hydrating and smooth, they don't tend to last on the lips more than a couple of hours, but they are very comfortable lipsticks to wear and this has become one of my favourite work lipsticks.
Ruby Slippers is very different to what I imagined. It is a beautiful shimmery yellow toned pink with a fine gold sheen. I didn't expect to like this as much as I do, because shimmery lipsticks aren't really my thing. The colour reminds me of a lipstick version of the NARS Orgasm blush. This is a slightly sheer lipstick, but it is really pretty and it gives a shimmery lip gloss look without the stickiness of a gloss.
Overall I really do like these lipsticks, and even though I prefer a lipstick that lasts a little longer (like a matte lipstick for example) I can imagine these being a savior for people who have food allergies/sensitivities and is unable to wear most lipsticks on the market.
