Tip #1: All of our colors will blend with the natural pigment of your lips, which can make the color shift. Apply a dab of your foundation over your lips before lipstick application, to allow the true color of Fierce to shine.
Tip #2: Try applying this as a stain with your finger. Apply a thin layer of Rallye Balm first, then using your clean ring finger, rub the slanted tip of the lipstick bullet a few times - and then dab onto your lips. It will allow you to have a sweet plum stain.
Tip #3: A lip brush is your best friend with a dark color - trust me! You can use it to really define your lip line, and fill in ever perfect little crevice on your lips! Here's our professional lip brush: click here
Tip #4: Exfoliate your lips on a regular basis - this will keep dry skin cells from sitting on top of your lips...which will make the lipstick color look uneven and not allow it to last as long, because your skin cells are falling off your lips, along with the lipstick. With dark colors it's especially important to exfoliate - because the bold color will emphasize any dry skin.
Tip #5: Moisturize your lips with Rallye Balm after exfoliation. Massage a healthy amount into your lips to help strengthen the skin and smoothe the lines. Wipe off any excess, so there's not a layer of balm sitting on TOP of your lips. Apply Fierce on top.

Thank you! FABULOUS.
I have fair skin, light eyes, and dark brown hair. This is not pinky pink, more of a purple wine, though there is some berry pink under when it fades.
I used to wear a similar color and am happy to have this excellent replacement! I like applying straight from the tube, no brush, which easily gives a bold look that I love. However, I've also been playing with applying it lightly either straight from the tube or with a brush and love the everyday color that gives. Especially when worn bold, it makes my teeth look brighter white, my face look faster and flawless.
Note: Fierce is not as moisturizing as some of the other RAL lipsticks. Exfoliating and moisturizing beforehand really help in application. A sheet gloss our Rallye balm might be nice to use for applying more moisture throughout the day. The color itself lasts well.

If you've never tried Red Apple Lipstick, you must! Not only are they full of good non-toxic ingredients, but the colors are awesome. Fierce is my new favorite. You can put it on sheer, like a gloss, or thicker, for a more intense experience. Adding a different color underneath with Fierce as the top layer is also great. It stays on well, and never causes my lips to dry out or flake. 10 Thumbs Up! (Yeah, I only have 2 thumbs, so 10 Thumbs Up is an honor!)

I've always wanted to wear lipstick, but it was never pleasurable to have on. Red Apple lipsticks are the best. I actually love putting on and wearing them. Fierce is my favorite fall color. It's just dark enough to give some color, but not glaring. I apply a very light layer during the day, and it gives my face a little "oomph". My other favorites are Rebel and Drama.

BRAVO, Jay and Andrea, for creating this color! I sent Jay a piece of paper months ago where I smeared a favorite lipstick color on it and asked if he'd make the color. Fierce is it! I don't know if my piece of paper prompted this color but I am incredibly grateful they created it. It will be a staple color for me. I LOVE IT! THANK YOU FOR CREATING GLUTEN-FREE, PARABEN-FREE, VEGAN PRODUCTS FOR US! I can't wait for the mascara!

I think this was my 5th or 6th order with RAL. I love this company. They have excellent customer service, fast shipping (with adorable packaging), and the best gluten free lipstick and gloss!! I could go on and on about what I love however, this is a review about Fierce.
I knew when I purchased Fierce that is was a VERY dark color but would be a bit lighter when applied. I am a 38 (almost) year old woman with light skin, blond/light brown hair with blue eyes. I actually like darker colors. When I tried Fierce I noticed it bleed around my lips. I haven't had that happen before and never noticed wrinkles around my lips. No worries, all colors aren't for everyone and I just found one not for me. RAL has many other colors that are perfect for me.
Like I mentioned earlier, they have the best customer service ever. You have nothing to lose. You have everything to gain by trying a product from RAL!!

The only problem I have is that the lipstick Is softer in the tube. Glad that I found the gluten free. It is rather high in price.

I like the color but it is extremely dark, almost "Goth-like".
Add a little frosted pink shade (like Secret) and it does tone down. This lipstick has a matte finish.

amazing deep wine color! Don't judge this color by how it looks in the tube. If it wasn't for your pictures of how the color looked on real lips, I would have missed out on a beautiful color! This color is perfect to be applied with a lip brush with a little RAL balm with it. It's 'the' color for fall 2013!

The Summer lineup is amazing but thanks to the fresh Fall lineup, Fierce is my new favorite shade. I added Cabernet Kiss lip gloss for the evening transition, which created a look that was both romantic and dramatic.
This smokin' hot combo took me confidently from stilettos and a tailored suit to boots and tight jeans. I absolutely love, Love, LOVE this look for Fall in the Bay area!

ANYONE can pull off this beautiful wine color! And the best part is... I've combined it with other RAL colors and each combination was so pretty. The combo I love the best is lining with the Chocolate lip liner, then a light layer of Fierce, blotting, then finishing off with a swipe of Queen of Hearts lip gloss. Gorgeous! For those who shy away from dark colors like this... don't be afraid! Apply it with your finger...Gives your lips that "just bitten" look.
