Red Apple Lipstick

I spent all of my teen years in the 1980s, the decade of big hair and lots of makeup.  As a history teacher, I enjoy teaching my students about the 80s, and I love watching The Goldbergs, one of the best comedies on TV, but I am anti-80s when it comes to fashion and makeup.  I no longer use hairspray, foundation, blush, eyeliner, rainbow colored mascaras, lipstick, or blue eye shadow.

The only makeup I have worn in the last 20 years is mascara and lip gloss, but I had to give up mascara after we moved to Florida, because every time I wore it, my eyes would be red and itchy for days afterwards.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease right before our move to Orlando 8 years ago, so I tried Tarte mascara, which does not contain gluten, in the hopes that my eyes would tolerate it.  With Tarte, I still ended up with red and itchy eyes.

After we moved to California this summer, I decided to try Red Apple Lipstick, which was highly recommended to me by some of my favorite bloggers - Erica from Celiac and the Beast and Sarah from Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW.

I was excited to try The Lash Project, Red Apple Lipstick's gluten free, vegan, lash conditioning mascara, and it has not disappointed.  I have been wearing it for over a month now, and my eyes have not been red or itchy.  I love that The Lash Project never goes on heavy, and I don't end up with any flaking or clumps on my eyelashes.  It is easy to wash off when I shower at night, using the soap I use on my face.  I have tried many brands of mascara since my teenage years, but Red Apple Lipstick's is by far the best.

My mascara arrived with a free Rallye Balm, because of a promotion Red Apple Lipstick was having when I placed my order.  If you struggle with chapped lips, you should give it a try.  I love that it has no odor or taste, and it feels so smooth on my lips.  

I am a huge fan of Red Apple Lipstick lip glosses, which are gluten free, paraben free, soy free, cruelty free, non-GMO, and vegan.  Ruby Glass, which has a good amount of sparkle, is my favorite, but I also love Dancing Princess, Twinkle Toes, and Metropolis.  Dancing Princess is sparkly like Ruby Glass, and Twinkle Toes has a beautiful shimmer to it.  If you don't like glitter and sparkle, try Metropolis, which is a nice shiny medium pink. They all feel good on my lips, and I can teach several classes without having to reapply.

Red Apple Lipstick also makes lipsticks, lip liners, eyeshadows, eye liners, and eye primer.

All Red Apple Lipstick products are made in the United States, and are lab tested free of gluten, parabens, toxins and lead.  You can read more about Red Apple Lipstick and place an order on their website here.  Be sure to use the coupon code AlexisGF10 to save 10%.  If you are not happy with any of their products, they offer a 6 month money back guarantee.

Red Apple Lipstick on social media: 

After placing my first Red Apple Lipstick order, I loved their mascara and lip glosses so much, I contacted them about featuring their products on my blog.  I was sent two more lip glosses free of charge, but all of the opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
