What is Red Apple Lipstick?
Texture - The texture of these lipsticks feel AMAZING!!! "Like buttah' " (I'm from Boston) Smooth and silky. Gives your lips that great "glide" when you rub them together. The vitamin e in them gives you long lasting results as well.
Scent/Taste - Reminds me of when I first started getting into makeup and was really into Lip Smackers. They have a very generic fruity smell that could be a "watermelon" or a "strawberry kiwi" type of smell often found in children's chapsticks. Personally I really like it and it isn't very strong but if you are very very sensitive to smells, you may want to be look into it a little more. And although you shouldn't eat cosmetics, I tend to lick my lips. The flavor is what you would expect, a fruity wax taste.
Packaging - Not only does your order arrive dressed like a present in fun green tissue paper, and a reusable canvas type drawstring bag, but the tubes rock too. The tubes are a round solid semi-matte black plastic. "Red Apple Lipstick" is embossed in "shiny clear" on the side of the cap, and the RAL logo of an apple with lips is embossed the same way on the top of the cap. The base of the lipstick has ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TEXTURE! This was honestly one of my favorite aspects of these lipsticks. They look so edgy and expensive. They texture is just a simple dot pattern, but it makes holding these lipsticks so easy. (Even when you have slippery face primer fingers...) The tube itself is a shiny silver finished plastic. My only downfall about this was that it gets fingerprinty easily. Twisting up and down the lipstick is extremely smooth and sturdy feeling. (You know how some lipsticks twist themselves back down when you go to apply it? NOT HAPPENING HERE) Pulling the cap on and off has a great and satisfying "click" noise as well. (It is the little things that really get me excited.)
Customer Service - I can not even express how friendly, generous and just down right goodness the whole Red Apple staff possesses. Have a question? They will probly get back to you within 20 minutes lol. Somehow they are all magically around to help out. They also all have a great passion for what they do. It really shows and makes me feel that much better about using their products.
THEY OFFER GREAT DISCOUNTS - Red Apple Lipstick has both a VIP Membership, as well as a buy back program. I recommend taking advantage of one of these (or both). Everyone is trying to pinch pennies these days, but RAL makes it easy to still get your cosmetics fix.
