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: 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 #4: 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 #5: 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 lip

I love this stuff. This is my first order and I ordered lovebird. As it turns out, the color is a little orange for me but I'm still wearing it because it's great stuff and I'm not allergic to it. I've ordered a pink to try. The color lasts for hours and hours and is moisturizing.

I am a fair skinned, blue-eyed, blonde (well, with some help from highlights!), and Lovebird is just a very pretty, wearable, soft pink with very slight peach undertones (as opposed to blue-pink) on me. I tend to go with soft apricots (like Beach Peach) or even orange or coral shades (like Push Pop), and this is a nice change for Spring. I really love it! I top it with just a touch of gloss.

I LOVE this color. It is by far my favorite lipstick out of the RAL colors so far. I wasn't sure if I would like this because nude lipsticks rarely look good on me. However, this is the perfect peachy pink. I was worried it would look to coral on me (not a fan of corals) but it isn't coral at all, at least it's not on me. Very feminine and pretty. I also love the creamy texture and beautiful shine. Perfect!!

When I saw this color on Facebook/Twitter, it immediately reminded me of a lovebird's cheeks, and that's really still how I see this color after owning it. It's the perfect peachy pink coral creme color.
I will say that I'm not sure if it's the formula or the color, but it will accentuate any dryness or lines you have, so put a good layer of Rallye Balm under it for the prettiest wear. I still love it!

When I received this col, I put it on right away. The color seemed a bit too light for my complexion, so I mixed it with other colors and found myself creating amazing colors! I'm so loving lovebird!

I honestly thought my lipstick collection could not get any better and then came the SUMMER instant color collection. I'm just blown away at how incredibly gorgeous these new colors are. I've been playing all weekend like a kid with my new colors. It's hard for me to even choose a favorite. I'm so glad I purchased all the colors available. I cannot wait to see what future cosmetic goodies are in store for us RAL junkies. Thanks so much for the great friendly customer service and makeup always.

I LOVE the new lipstick formula!!! It is so amazing. Creamy , easy to use and long lasting. The colors are gorgeous and gluten free, nut free and corn free so it is safe. Keep up the wonderful work!!

Lovebird is described as a light and delicate pink which is why I bought it. In the tube it looks more like a light coral and on the orange side. Although the pigmentation is wonderful, the color didn't flatter me at all as it was definitely a light orangey coral on my lips.
The lipstick goes on smoothly and feels moisturizing; that plus the high level of pigmentation makes me rate this lipstick high.

When I received this as part of my expanded RAL collection (as I am addicted to this makeup) I thought it might be too coral for me. However, when I applied it I feel in love. A great game changer color that lit up my face with a subtle pinkish/coral color that is a great addition to my collection. I will be wearing this a lot. Love it.

This is my first Red Apple Lipstick. It's nice and moist, is long lasting (nearly all day!), and is the perfect color for spring and summer. I'm very happy with my purchase. Plus, the name is really cute. Gluten free lipsticks are important to me as I have celiac disease; I am really glad I found this brand.
