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 your lip skin. This will help define your natural lip line and help the color blend into the edges of your lips.
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 with such a light color.

It's a nice modern nude pink that makes me happy to wear. I use it for blush too. It's a light matte color but not pale or bright.

Beautiful lipstick and a very nice color! I originally wanted to get it in full size, but it was sold out, so instead chose 'New York', and too this color as a sample. They are quite similar, so will not buy this one right away, but definitely would get in the future.

I LOVE RAL!!! I was thrilled when I found this brand after being diagnosed with Celiac. This color, Oh My Gauva, is actullay the PERFECT match to my natural lip color. It's like what foundation is to your skin so I can wear it all the time! I love the formulation.... how it looks, feels and has almost no scent at all! Plus it's not full of harmful ingredients.

I never would've considered this color if not for receiving a sample. Loved it so much I ordered a tube! I am not a fan of shimmer so I love that this is a creamy lipstick. Jay's lipstick tutorial was very helpful, too, where he found your actual lip color match (mine is Vogue which I also bought) then went darker (I have Fierce) and lighter in that color palette which brings us to: Oh My Guava! Before I'd gotten the sample I was wearing a light aqua outfit this spring and I thought Oh My Guava! might be perfect to wear with aqua. It is. It's a slightly warmer but still pink creamy nude color. Kinda reminds me of the color of Silly Putty! My other summer lipsticks of yours are cool-toned colors: Petal Pusher, Pinkle Twinkle and Crush On Me. I am all set with lipsticks for the summer!

This is a great nude color! Goes on smoothly like all of the other Red Apple products. <3
I don't even need to apply a lip gloss or anything on top of this.

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 totally love the "Oh My Guava" color. As always, the lipstick goes on smoothly and lasts throughout the day without having to reapply all the time. I love the way my lips stay smooth and moist and the color doesn't "clump" up in the corners or bleed. Your lip products (gloss or lipsticks) actually improve the texture of my lips. I used to get "rashy" like tiny bumps or a burning on my lips from wearing other store brand products. I couldn't wear them for long periods of time, and honestly, I couldn't wait to get them off my lips. Ever since I've been using Red Apple lipsticks or gloss, I can wear all day and into the evening without my lips breaking out or burning. I love it!!! When I'm not wearing anything on my lips, they are now smooth and I know it's because of the natural ingredients in your products. They truly feel better.
So once again, many "Thank You's" for continuing to produce and sell fabulous colors and amazing makeup. I also, never have a bad experience buying from your company. The products always come shipped nicely and I can't think of anything that ya'll are doing wrong or could do any better!!!
I will never buy store brands again!!!!

Oh My Guava is the duplicate to Mac's Blankety that I've been searching for!!! It's my new Holy Grail daily nude color!
The formula is very moisturizing too. I will be keeping Oh My Guava on hand for as long as you make it!
