Tip #1: 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.
Tip #2: 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.
Tip #3: Line your lips either with a pencil that matches Hibiskiss (like Roseberry) or the lipstick itself on a lip brush. With a dark color like this one, you want to make sure you draw good lines so that the color will enhance your lips and look even. Make sure to not just "draw a line" but pencil into your lips a little further, or use your finger to smudge the line into your lips. You just don't want a "ring around your mouth." Then apply straight from the tube.
Tip #4: Blot. Use a tissue, part your lips and slide the tissue in between. Roll your lips gently inward and back out, and remove tissue. Reapply lipstick from the tube.
Tip #5: Let the lipstick set. Let it dry. Don't drink anything, eat anything or touch your lips for just 5 minutes to give it a chance to set into your lip skin. You will appreciate doing this!
Tip #6: Try applying this as a stain with your finger. Using your clean ring finger, rub the slanted tip of the lipstick bullet a few times - and then dab onto your lips. This will create a lovely stain that looks like you just ate a handful of fresh picked raspberries.

THIS. This is the reason why I came to RAL in the first place. It was love at a first sight when Sarah (Holistic Habits) raved about this gorgeous shade on her youtube channel. I couldn't resist. I knew I had to have it. It's the first RAL I ever tried and after the first swipe on my lips I was hooked. I wear it to work almost every day. The only reason why I don't have it on me 24/7 it's because I also bought 4 other RAL's which are making it really hard for me to decide on which one it's my actual fave!

I have gotten a lot Love wearing this color. Light skinned, green eyes and blond hair. I am over 50 yet feel young and pretty. It is bright but flattering. I have also combined vogue over top to tone it down. Vogue is a lovely mauve almost neutral on me.

I love wearing it with a neutral outfit to add a little splash of color. Someone I work with said "Yesterday you had bright red shoes and today you have bright red lipstick!" I wanted to say "If you think this is bright, wait till you see the next color I buy!"

I am so thankful that I was referred to Red Apple Lipstick by one of the members in a Facebook group I belong to. When I saw a photo of her wearing Hibiskiss, I knew I had to check out this company. I just received my first order, and it was like being a kid on Christmas morning! Hibiskiss on me is a deep rose pink. It is a stunning color! it feels like the most sensuous, silky balm on my lips and lasts a remarkably long time. I have so enjoyed Jay's Lipstick Tutorials! I learned so much! Jay, if these aren't on Youtube, they ought to be. I wish I had known these tips and tricks as a teenager when I first started wearing lipstick. Keep up the great work making all these super products! I am a Customer for Life!

I own a lot of the RA lipsticks, but this is my go-to shade. It wears well and the shade is great all year round. I get compliments when I wear this. Never stop making this color! As always, thanks Jay and Andrea for your great products.

Just when I think I couldn't love another shade more than the one before! This color is absolutely amazing! The color is a lovely shade of brighter pink but not too bright. I have the same shade that I bought in GloMinerals but this formula is MUCH more soft and glides on without sticking. I get so many compliments on this color. Thank you for developing this color!

Hibiskiss is *the* lip color every little girl who grew up listening to Cyndi Lauper wished her mother would let her wear. Maybe you couldn't rock it then, but now you can, and this hot pink is better than EVER. Not even the slightest hint of shimmer, this matte miracle stays put all day and brings any makeup scheme or outfit a special zing of intense color. I like to pair this with a bright but light eye look (with little liner) putting maximum focus on my superbly pink pout.
