    Just love all the wonderful ingredients that are healthy for the body. The lipstick feels lovely on the lips and makes them very soft and moist. The color is just perfect.

  2. 3 out of 5 Too warm :(

    Amber

    This is a nice lipstick it just isn’t the color I expected. It looks nothing like a dusty rose or mauve, at least not on my fair complexion. It is more warm …almost a light coral. Too bad because I don’t think it suits me. I do love this company though and I am happy with my other purchases.

    I really like this shade of lipstick. I have fair skin and it is the perfect shade to brighten my natural lip color into a soft pink. I would definitely purchase this shade again.

  5. 4 out of 5 My go to lipstick - almost perfect

    [email protected]

    I have multiples of this lipstick and it works with almost everything I wear. Unfortunately, it is just a shade bluer than my medium warm pink lip color and has just a touch of muddiness. My husband is allergic to sesame, so I can no longer wear my favorite color, the sheer red Strawberry Lips. I am still looking for the perfect “nude” lip color, but this one’s pretty good in the interim – professional yet lighthearted.

    Mandy

    This is a gorgeous creamy pink “nude” that I knew I had to have as soon as the sample touched my lips. It’s very similar to Twist ‘N Pout, though a little pinker. Love it!

  7. 4 out of 5 Awesome color but not mauve

    Stephanie

    I got a sample of this because mauves and rose shades complement my warm olive skin tone. I have a typical Italian look. This shade is very pink on me. Its just like Audrey only warmer. It looks better on me than Audrey does so I may end up getting a full tube. Its looks very pretty on me, its just not what I expected.

    It could be maven mauve or any color for that matter. RAL has become the ONLY make up I wear. All the products are so superior to any others that it just makes sense. Not to mention the fact that they are good for you. My only regret is that I didn’t find them sooner.

  16. 5 out of 5 Nudey Pink

    ARLYNE

    This is one of my favorite shades. I have medium olive skin, very dark brown hair and on me this shade is a good nude pink. It is not bright on me at all and I gravitate towards colors like that. Sort of like twist and pout which is more peachy nude, this one is a good neutral pink. I would think this is a shade that would work with many skin tones because it isn’t too pigmented. I probably wouldn’t classify it as a mauve on me personally.

  17. 5 out of 5 Perfect Pink

    melc

    I think that this is the perfect pink for everyday. It is the shade I have been looking for. It is muted enough that it is still a my lips but better color but with enough brightness to it that it still brings life to my lips and face. I think it is similar to the Victoria’s Secret model pink lip.

  20. 5 out of 5 BEST LIPSTICK

    Michelle

    I could not be a bigger fan of lipstick and RAL lipsticks are fantastic. I am gradually replacing my other lipsticks with RAL since I know they have good ingredients. I am thrilled I have not had any bad reactions to this lipstick as I have incredibly sensitive and reactive skin; I’ve reacted to other brands before and it’s not fun so this has been a great find. Maven Mauve is a great every day color that can be applied lightly or add more layers for more depth. I initially thought this was a pinky mauve color until I compared it to Mabel (my favorite) and noticed Mabel has more of a blue/cool undertone than Maven Mauve. Maven Mauve is pink with a very subtle coral or peach lean to it. I am fair and can easily wear this.

    The color for this lipstick was very unflattering on me (olive skin). Made my lips looked chapped when they weren’t. Also made my teeth look yellow, which they aren’t. Formulas was nice.

  24. 4 out of 5 Wearable pink for brown skin tone

    Jleedt

    I bought this without trying a sample, just based on the RAL swatches in youtube and review. I love the color since pinks usually don’t go well with my skin tone. However, I’m only giving it 4 stars as my only problem with this is when I try to swipe it on my lips, the texture/color tend to separate unlike their other lip color I bought ( Audrey, Mayberry and Fierce). This is despite me lipscrubbing and moisturizing my lips prior to application. I’m not sure why It tend to do this. It is better dabbed than using a brush or swiping it directly.

    Overall, the lipstick is good.

    Emily

    I bought this shade without trying a sample first but I watched the videos above and read the reviews so I had a pretty good idea I’d be getting a color that would work for me! This is a super pretty soft shade of pink that isn’t shimmery. It’s definitely going to be one of my go to shades! I like wearing a couple coats where it’s more of a no lipstick-lipstick look, as described above. It’s very flattering this way and gives my lips just a little extra something!

    I received Maven Mauve as a sample and am so glad I did! I would have skimmed right over this color, so thank you, Andrea and Jay, for including samples that I wouldn’t have tried on my own. I ended up using up the whole sample in a matter of a few applications and just placed an order to get a full tube. It is a very natural pinkish mauve, just enough to look finished for a day look. Once again, thank you from someone who is sensitive to gluten although not celiac. My lips have never been happier!

    4 out of 5 Lovely formula but color misleading

    Karen

    Maven Mauve was the first lipstick I purchased from Red Apple Lipstick, and the formula got me hooked! Super creamy and pigmented and miraculously did not make my lips chapped (unlike every other lipstick that I’ve tried). The reason it is getting four stars instead of five is that I feel the color description is somewhat off. Mauve shades really compliment my pale yet neutral olive undertones, hazel eyes, and dark brown hair. This shade however comes off way more pink than mauve, and unfortunately pinks look very odd on me. Had I been able to find my invoice number, I would have exchanged it. However after blending it with many other colors, I am finding some nice uses for it. And again the formula is amazing! So if you are looking for a lovely midtone rose pink, then this is for you! Personally I ended up adoring Boys n Berries and Vogue for my complexion.

    4 out of 5 More Pink Than Mauve

    Kathryn

    While “Maven Mauve” is a gorgeous color, I bought it because I love true mauves. Unfortunately, I bought this shade in the same order as their lipstick “Audrey.” On the lips, they are essentially the same color. That being said, this is a great dusty pink that is suitable for daytime wear…anywhere! 🙂

  36. 4 out of 5 Dusty Rose

    jlstierney

    I bought Maven Mauve thinking it would be more of a mauve color. I traditionally love mauve colored lipsticks so I was expecting a more of a mauve color based on the description. Maven Mauve is more of a dusty rose color. The description states it is a blend between a dusty rose and a mauve, but to me it is a true dusty rose color with no mauve in it. I do love the color and it looks great on, but it was not what I was expecting. When looking at the “mauve” named lipsticks from RAL this one is not really a mauve but a dusty rose.

    jlstierney

    To me Maven Mauve is more of a rose color. The description states it is a blend between a dusty rose and a mauve. I found it to be more of a true dusty rose color. I did not find a lot of mauve mixed in when applied on my lips. It appeared to be more of a pinky-rose color. If you are looking for a pretty dusty rose lipstick, this is the color for you. Another great neutral!

  40. 5 out of 5 Almost Like My Natural Lip Color

    Jo Merriam

    I just bought “Maven Mauve” thinking that it would be just a wee bit darker than my natural lip color. It’s actually a wee bit lighter than my natural lip color which is a sort of deep rosy color, about half way between Maven Mauve and Mauve Me. My very first thought was that it was too light for me, but my next thought was, what a great color for mixing! My all-time favorite RAL color (so far!) is “Hibiscus”, which is a deep saturated rose, and my favorite stand-in for red. However, “Hibiscus” can sometimes be a little too much color, and when I mixed it with “Maven Mauve”, I got a really great, lighter, daytime rose shade that doesn’t arrive before I do! Like all RAL lipsticks, “Maven Mauve” is deliciously creamy and light. So, I’m keeping it as a great mixer for making my own custom shades!

    Laura

    This is a beautiful neutral pink that is a MLBB color on me. For reference, I have fair skin with neutral to cool undertones and dark brown eyes and hair. I have both this color and Audrey, and they are very similar, but Maven Mauve is a bit cooler toned so it flatters my complexion a bit more. I have more Red Apple lipsticks than I care to admit, and they all are incredibly moisturizing and wear very well. I am in love!

    It has no fragrance. I like that, because of lipsticks scented flowers not take it anymore; are nauseating. It is a very creamy lipstick, comfortable, soft, matte and which does not smudge. And ‘ideal for a make-up day and at the same time is a very sophisticated lipstick. It has a beautiful design, modern. A delicate color, I like!

    On my medium toned lips, this colour is a milky nude rose that is so beautiful! I don’t like to wear pure skintoned nudes so this is a perfect alternative to get that clean look. I was scared it would be dark but it is quite the opposite. This is such a sweet, delicate colour. I love it! Completely satisfied with RAL so far!

  46. 5 out of 5 Great Mascara

    J.S.

    This product totally matches my expectation. I have very sensitive eyes and tried so many drug store and high end mascaras. It was hard to find the product that would not irritate my eyes. When Red Apple announced that they would issue the new mascara which will not irritate eyes and will not damaging your lash follicle, I was thinking that I should give it a try. The first time I tried it, I felt that I am full in love with it. It won’t smudge and feels lightweight when I wear it. The best part is it will not make my eyes itchy and pain. I strongly recommend this product for every one.

  51. 5 out of 5 Maven Mauve a hit!

    Martie Schoener

    I really like this new shade! I am a huge fan of Vogue, and Maven Mauve is a softer, more toned down version of that – with a little more to the pink side. I have a lot of brown/red undertone to my lips, so Maven Mauve is not either real pink or real purple on me – just a nice soft tone for summer. I have been layering Love Letter gloss over this and absolutely LOVE the look….just a very polished, subtle daytime look for me.
