Red Apple Lipstick Petal Pusher and Sunkissed

July 20, 2014



Če spremljate "green beauty blogger community", potem ste nedvomno že spoznale ameriško znamko ličil Red Apple Lipstick. Sploh se več ne spomnim pri kateri blogerki sem prvič videla to znamko, a po omembi na skoraj vsakem drugem blogu sem končno kliknila na njihovo spletno stran in na dnu strani našla "We Heart Bloggers". Hitro sem izpolnila obrazec in po dogovoru sem za oceno na blogu prejela dve šminki, Petal Pusher* in Sunkissed*.
Red Apple Lipstick Mineral Lipstick, Vegan, Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Paraben Free, Allergen Free

Šminke so spravljene v škatlicah ter v majhni vrečkici iz blaga. Na škatlicah so oznake, da so šminke vegan, brez glutena, parabenov, soje in alergenov, znamka ne testira na živalih in je proizvedena v Združenih državah Amerike. Všeč mi je črna embalaža z bunkicami za trden oprijem. Pokrov se krasno zapre, kar pomeni, da klikne. Ali ni to vedno super?! Detajli na embalaži so super, še posebej sem navdušena nad jabolčkom. Jabolko z ustnicami je seveda tudi na škatlicah in če pravilno sestavimo skupaj tri škatlice dobimo eno veliko jabolko. :)
Šminke imajo razdeljene po skupinah, moji dve sta iz linije Summer Passion. Sestavine teh šmink so:

Ricinus Communis, Ozokerite, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Synthetic Bees Wax, Olive (Olea Europea) Oil, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate from an all natural non gluten source, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis leaf Extract, may contain Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Iron Oxides

Ena izmed sestavin v tej liniji, ki so jo omenjale druge blogerke, je Retinyl Palmitate (oblika vitamina A). Glede na EWG' Skin Deep sestavine retinola pod UV svetlobo razpadejo in začnejo proizvajati toksične proste radikale, ki lahko spremenijo DNA in povzročijo mutacije. Še bolj kot v šminkah, je sestavina lahko problematična v kremah, ki jih vsakodnevno nanašamo in nato izpostavljamo soncu. Na srečo ta linija šmink sestavine ne vsebuje več, ker pa na škatlicah ni napisanih sestavin, ne morem vedeti ali jo moje še vsebujejo ali ne.

Kot ste že opazile, sem izbrala dve živi barvi. Prva se imenuje Petal Pusher, ki jo imenujejo tudi "perfect hot pink", torej popolna vroča roza barva. Vsebuje drobne rozno-srebrne bleščice, ki niso ravno moje najljubše. Je pa tako lepa brava, da jih kar ignoriram.

Drugi odtenek je Sunkissed, oranžno-rdeč odtenek z drobnim oranžnim shimmrom. Pričakovala sem bolj oranžen odtenek, na fotografiji mojega obraza je rahlo bolj oranžen kot v resnici. No, ravno zaradi tega pa je odtenek bolj univerzalen in lažje nosljiv.Red Apple Lipstick Sunkissed

Obe šminki sta čudoviti. Zelo vlažilni in mehki, občutek na ustnicah je krasen, kot da sploh ne bi nosila šminke ampak balzam. Sta zelo pigmentirani, nelepljivi in res odlični za uporabo. Pa še sladko-sadno dišita. Razumem zakaj so tako popularne! Edina stvar, ki me moti je, da včasih z ustnic izgine neenakomerno in pusti rob. Na srečo se to ne zgodi vedno. Je pa res, da se ne zabriše na kožo temveč ostane na ustnicah. Obstojnost šmink je nekaj ur, na ustnicah pusti "stain", ki mi pri Petal Pusher odtenku ni všeč prav zaradi bleščic, ki postanejo bolj vidne. Negativa stran šmink je cena, ena stane 23$ oziroma 17€. Nisem še imela dražje šminke in čeprav sem zadovoljna z obema in bi z veseljem preizkusila še nekaj odtenkov, ki jih imajo sicer ogromno, mislim, da bo moja Red Apple Lipstick kolekcija ostala taka kot je. Vsaj zaenkrat. Ne glede na vse, jih priporočam in ne bi se branila tudi njihovih senčil in še nekaterih drugih proizvodov. :)

I'm sure you all heard about Red Apple Lipstick. I don't remember where I saw it first but it was one of the lovely green beauty blogger who introduced it to me. A lipstick lover that I am I was immediately drawn to them and when I saw that beautiful We Heart Bloggers on the bottom of Red Apple Lipstick website I was like, Yees, let's do this! After applying and all that, I chose two lipsticks in bold colors, Petal Pusher* and Sunkissed*.
Lipsticks are vegan, gluten, soy, paraben, allergen and cruelty free, made in the USA. I like the packaging, the cap always clicks and isn't this the best? I love the details, especially the cute little apple with lips. The apple is also on the boxes and if you correctly place three you get one big apple. :) On their website you have a whole lot of lipsticks, mine are both from the Summer Passion Line. Ingredients are:
Ricinus Communis, Ozokerite, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Synthetic Bees Wax, Olive (Olea Europea) Oil, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate from an all natural non gluten source, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis leaf Extract, may contain Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Iron Oxides

One of the ingredient that I wasn't familiar before and read about it on other blogs is Retinyl Palmitate (a form of Vitamin A). According to EWG's Skin Deep Retinyl palmitate is an ingredient composed of palmitic acid and retinol (Vitamin A). When exposed to UV light, retinol compounds break down and produce toxic free radicals that can damage DNA and cause gene mutations. New formulation of this line of lipstick is retinyl palmitate free. Yay! But because there's no ingredient list on the boxes I can't be sure if mine still contains it or not. Bummer.
But let's move on to the colors. Petal Pusher is a "perfect hot pink". On me it looks kinda pink kinda fuschia, beautiful color. The shade contains tiny glitter particles which are not my favourite but I still love the lipstick. Other shade is Sunkissed, orangy-red shade with orange shimmer. I expected it to be more of an orange, on the photo of me it looks a bit more orange than it is in real life. 
I love both. They are so moisturizing and creamy and they smell deliciously sweet. The feeling on my lips is amazing, it's like I'm wearing a lip balm and not a lipstick.They both have great pigmentation, they're not sticky, they don't bleed and and are just easy to wear. I get it why they're so popular! One thing that sometimes bothers me is that they can leave an uneven stain. Yes, they can leave that unattractive darker lip liner look. Fortunately that doesn't happen all the time, I have yet do decode what I'm doing wrong. Lasting power is okay, they last for a few hours. As I said, they stain my lips and I don't like that with Petal Pusher because the glitter particels really become prominent. 
I really enjoy wearing these two gorgeous lippies and I wish they were more affordable, one is 23$. That's why my Red Apple Lipstick collection will for now remain the same but I wouldn't mind having some more shades and their eyeshadows also look nice. :)
