And then I finally got a chance to see what the girls liked so much about the lip gloss. I was already head over heels for the lipstick, so was totally primed and ready to test out the gloss. 😀
The gloss comes in a nice sized bottle with a sponge type application wand. The tip has a perfect angle that makes applying the gloss a breeze. It’s pretty thick at first touch, but spreads evenly and smoothly with complete effortlessness. Though the gloss looks quite red in the bottle, when applied on our naked lips, it only lent a slight, natural, enhanced color. That in and of itself is very appealing, but what really makes this stuff rock is the super shine. And wow, this stuff is shiny! Light reflecting, lip enhancing, beautifully shiny! I’ve never used such a shiny lip gloss. Never.
But then again, I’m not the one who uses lip gloss all the time. I use it occasionally, but have previously been of the opinion that it’s just “eh, fine.” So I’ve asked the resident lip gloss experts to tell me their more practiced and knowledgeable opinions.. 😉
Girl #1 (lip gloss connoisseur): I like the way it looks; I like that it’s really shiny. You know, it’s got a nice sheen to it. I also love how it feels when I put it on. The only possible downside is that it’s a little bit sticky. But that’s what makes the shine. So, I love how it looks, I just always need to put more on after a meal or drink. But I really like it.
Girl #2 (fashion goddess; always on the lookout for style): Red Apple’s Lip Gloss lasts and stays glossy longer than any of my other natural glosses. It makes my lips feel so moisturized and goes on really smooth. I like to wear it because of the pop of shine and how it enhances the shape of my lips without overpowering my natural color.
Girl #3 (unfussy, gluten free queen): I’m not usually a lip gloss fan, but I wanted to try Red Apple’s because it was very pretty in the bottle and I was curious to try a gluten free gloss. I like how it feels on my lips; very moisturizing and soothing. I like that it doesn’t have an offensive smell, and being very picky about the scent of stuff I put on my lips, that’s kind of a big deal for me. In fact, it is a very pleasant scent to me. The gloss seemed to have a lot of staying power too, compared to other lip glosses I’ve used in the past. Later, after I’ve eaten, worn the gloss all day and it finally starts to wear off, my lips still feel moisturized and smooth, like I’d put on lip balm instead of lip gloss.
As for me, well…
Girl #1, 2 or 3 (take your pick): Where’s that Red Apple lip gloss?
Me: Oh, it’s in my purse.
I don’t even bother to take it out anymore, because it now comes with me wherever I go. If you haven’t already checked out Red Apple Lipstick, I would totally recommend you do so. You’ll be glad you did. 😉
