Red Apple Lipstick Samples Review + Swatches


Happy Saturday lovely readers!!! I have a fun post today all about Red Apple Lipstick. I am definitely a lipstick hoarder. Thank goodness I am switching to more natural and organic makeup options because the drugstore makeup aisle used to be such a struggle for me! My fiancé and I would go into CVS and I would head to the makeup aisle and he would scream “IT’S A TRAP!” Not really but the poor man can only take so much!

Getting into the green community you start to hear quite a bit about certain brands. Red Apple Lipstick is certainly one of them! They make Gluten Free, Paraben Free, Allergen free, non-GMO, cruelty free, vegan lipsticks. I mean, what more can you ask for?


Red Apple Lipstick was kind enough to send me a few free samples to test out! You can purchase samples of all of their lip colors which I think is extremely helpful! You get to see if the formula is what you expect and whether the color suits you.

The samples come in little plastic discs. Each sample is covered with a resealable sticker. You could always depot these into a lipstick palette to make it easier. Each sample has the name written on the sticker so it doesn’t get confusing. Don’t worry, when I went to label the swatch photo I still managed to get a bit confused… Let’s take a look at the swatches, shall we?


Ravishing – This is a deep, blue based red. You can easily wear this full impact or pat it in just as a stain. Extremely creamy, pigmented and long lasting. This would look so beautiful with a simple cat flick!

Rebel – Rebel is extremely similar in tone to ravishing but a bit lighter. It’s a deep raspberry color that is absolutely perfect for Spring! If you’re a bit timid when it comes to red lipsticks I think this would be a fantastic color to try out!

Ooh La La – I have extremely pigmented lips so this is the perfect MLBB shade. It’s just so creamy and beautiful. It doesn’t lean to brown or pink. It’s just a perfect mauve shade for everyday wear. Absolutely love this. I’ll definitely consider picking this one up in the full size.

Firecracker – Hello beautiful orange toned red. Can we all say Summer? I just want to slap this on with glowy skin and frolic! Or something like that… This is an extremely creamy, opaque orangey-red. Red Apple Lipstick describes it as Paprika which I think is an apt comparison. Absolutely gorgeous! Very unique.

Coral Crush – This is a true pinky coral color! It’s extremely beautiful. The perfect spring color for day time! It’s sheer but still provides a really nice pop of color.


Overall thoughts: I think these are really beautifully and ethically formulated. If you are looking for beautiful, clean lipsticks Red Apple Lipsticks is your answer! These lipsticks are extremely moisturizing and pigmented! I was surprised at how comfortable these were. The color lasts for hours without getting dry and crackly. Huge win!

Have you tried Red Apple Lipsticks? They also sell eyeshadows that I definitely want to give a try! A huge thanks to Red Apple Lipsticks for sending me these samples. As always, all opinions are my own.

    How many applications can you get out of the sample packets?

      Hi Joanne! Quite a few. They’re quite pigmented so I would say you could get at least 5-8 applications!
