As a woman over 50, here's my philosophy for "aging gracefully": If nothing else, throw on some moisturizing, healthy lip color! There is something about a woman with a little color to her smile that makes her not only appear younger - she seems more approachable, friendlier, confident, well-rested, and healthier! Strawberry Lips is my perfect "go to" color when I want to feel youthfully appropriate, day or night - fresh, happy, rosy, glowing. The beauty of Red Apple Lipstick is that not only do you get a luscious shade, true to its name - Strawberry Lips - but you get the added youthful benefit of long lasting, dewy soft, moisture - a huge perk for aging dry lips! Being a health advocate and health coach, Red Apple's gluten free, paraben free, allergen free formula has made me a lipstick believer again! And a little personal tip: For evening, I build the color a bit with two coats. For daytime, a super fresh, youthful look can be achieved with a dab of Cotton Candy lip gloss on the center of the bottom lip! Beautiful!

A versatile, sophisticated but chic lip color. It can be worn sheerly for a berry-stain look, or layered on for a much deeper color. For a bolder look, try using the lip pencil in Chocolate or Brick under this lipstick.
Evoking love in the height of Summer, steamy nights, and passionate kisses sweet enough to eat, this deep shade of red will keep your lips juicy and plump, ripe for the picking!

Strawberry Lips is the PERFECT red lipstick...warm, rich, and beautiful, but NOT over the top! Perfect for daytime with a single application; perfect for evening with another application or two.
Strawberry Lips is my go-to, looks-just-like-my-own-lips-but-better lipstick. Sheer with a single application, but rich and beautiful too.
Perfect for those who tend to prefer the lighter look of glosses--but with all the staying power of lipstick.
BEAUTIFUL for those with warm complexions who don't want to look too "made-up".
Seriously...I own several Red Apple Lipsticks at this point, and THIS one is by far my favorite, for so many reasons. Try it...you'll love it.

I really love this shade, and the color is very true to the image on the website! The texture is so amazing and the color is lasting. I am so thankful I found this website, these lipsticks beat out any natural lipstick company (and I have tried the ALL)! To top it all off, the customer service is suburb.

I have and love the Naughty Lip Color, but it's very neutral on me and doesn't really add any color. I wanted something with a bit more oomph, but not too much. I have dark hair and light brown eyes and my skin tone is light olive, and this is the perfect shade for me! It goes on more sheer, so I can really build the color and is brown based so it doesn't go fuscia on me like some pink based colors can. Love it! Thanks for another great product, RAL!

I have tried a LOT of the RAL colors in search of the right shade for me. I am fair skinned with dark hair and slight olive undertones. I needed a red with blue (not yellow) undertones that wasn't too orange-y, or pink or glittery. I'm in my 40s and work in a conservative environment. This red gives me a pop of color without looking "girly" or "overdone" - but you can layer it on darker if you want to add drama for a night out. I liked it so much I ordered a 2nd one so I can keep one in my purse and one in my make-up bag!

I love this color, strawberry lips, it's perfect. I'm not much of a lipstick wearer, more glosses. I usually get a lipstick and to me, it either doesn't look right on me or my lips get so dry from it.....this one is different for me. The color is great on and doesn't get too dry on my lips....if it starts wearing, I throw a lil gloss on top....glad I listened to all these reviews and bought it!

Love this soft red with a dash of pink- almost like rhubarb! Great on all skin types. Gives a red hue without the harshness of a true red. A very oretty shade.

What can I say that I have not said before. Only that this is the third, maybe 4th tube I have purchased. It is my go to color. I can mix it with the other RAL colors to get the desired shade I need for my mood or clothes.
Love the color and I know I am safe using this GF and soy free product.

First and foremost I can't understate the value of not having to contact a manufacturer to find out if there's gluten in the product and either get no response, a CYA response, OR have to repeat the contact with every color I buy or restock because ingredients change across colors or over time. Seriously the biggest pain and the fact that RAL products are all GF and I don't have to question that is worth its weight in gold. Second, your products are fantastic. The colors are vibrant, the lip products feel heavenly and the eye products glide on. I recommend RAL to all my non-GF friends too!
I'm a late 30s, light to medium toned caucasian with pale brown hair and eyes. My lips are rather pale pink and so your lip colors definitely wear brighter/more vibrant on me than in any of the pictures on your site. I prefer neutral/natural make up colors.
I now have so many lipsticks I have a hard time picking which to wear! And no, I can't pick a favorite. That'd be like me picking which of my kids I like best LOL. Ruby Slippers and Strawberry Lips were my first RAL colors and I adore them. Red can be intimidating and because I prefer a understated make up look it can be hard to find a red that doesn't scream "look at my lips!" Ruby Slippers with it's pretty shine and sparkle is fun and flirty and really a great every day. Strawberry Lips is just a great and since it's more matte it's perfect for days I need to look very professional or want my other make up or clothes to have the spotlight. Both are great reds for those who are red shy.
