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 Ravishing 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 nice daytime red stain
Tip #3: Use a lip liner or lip brush to outline your lips first to create a smooth detailed canvas. Use Almost Red Revolution lip liner for a perfect match!
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. This is especially important with dark colors like Ravishing because the dry skin will stand out without proper exfoliation!
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 Ravishing on top.

This is my first red lipstick and it looks amazing. I have yet to exfoliate my lips properly because it outlines the dry skins on the lips but the colour is way richer than it looks on the website and even though I didn't think I was the type for this lipstick (fair skin, dark brown hair, green eyes), I look Ravishing. Thanks for the amazing quality of the product, which stays for hours even though I bite my lips and drink/eat a lot. I'm in love!

Out of all the red hues this one is my top pick. I have a tan complexion and this pairs well with my skin tone. The other reds are a little too bright for my taste, but this deep red can give you just enough pop of color to dress up any ensemble.

I have always been a lipstick wearer, until I found out the ingredients in most lipsticks. YUCK. I was so excited to meet Amanda Madigan and discover Red Apple Lipstick. The lipstick is made from natural ingredients and it makes my lips soft. I love how long it last. I was truly impressed with the quality and staying power. I'm super excited to replace my teenage daughters makeup with Red Apple Lipstick products.

Beautiful...just beautiful. A rich, deep red for all of us with warm-toned skins. It's everything I was hoping that Rebel would be...and so I will be purchasing Ravishing again!

I love this red. I am not much for Orange reds, which I consider China reds and Red 101 to be. I also am not a pinky pink girl. This blue based glossy red is the perfect holiday red. It makes me think Christmas.
I have a fair complexion, pale lips, dark brown hair and light eyes. I prefer applying straight from the tube, so probably apply bolder than with a lip brush.

This red is amazing but just too bold for me. It's quite dark and came off a little too stark with my pale coloring. If I were still performing in the theatre I might have kept it.

Great for blue jeans and dressup.

the name says it all. This is bold and beautiful! The color of the perfect American beauty rose. The description for this lip color is spot on! I find it a bit more drying than other colors so it needs to be mixed with the RAL balm. The color is long lasting.
