Hello and welcome! It’s day one of the Summer of Passion Giveaway with Celiac and the Beast and Red Apple Lipstick.
Today’s product is Summer Sands – part of their new Summer Passion line. It’s gluten-free and paraben-free and extra moisturizing for summer. It’s allergen-free and vegan, and free from animal cruelty! How great is that?
First, let me introduce you to the makers of Summer Sands – Red Apple Lipstick.
Red Apple Lipstick is an awesome company – I’ve loved them since the moment I met them at the Chicago Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in Chicago in April. I have to tell you – I’m really bad at checking if my lipsticks are gluten-free. And I feel terrible about it! I’m supposed to be some sort of awesome GF person who can tell you what products rule or not. And I’m not following my own instructions. I finally weened myself off of my current lipsticks and threw everything out that wasn’t certified GF. I stuck to just using Aquaphor for months. My lips haven’t seen a shade other than naked lips for months! And then a shipment of Red Apple Lipstick came in to sample and I was so excited – thanks again Andrea and Jay at RAL!
Here’s some photos of me rockin’ Summer Sands. PS I’m also wearing Red Apple Lipstick’s new eyeshadows! The two colors I’m wearing with Summer Sands are E13 (Golden Girl) and E8 (porcelain) – just recently named online! Make sure to check RAL for when you can buy these great eyeshadows!
This lipstick is perfect for everyday use – not too showy or flashy, and perfectly moisturizing. I paired it with light, golden-toned eyeshadows for a soft look. I could wear this easily to work or outside by the pool.
Although it’s nice to have a neutral color in your lipstick repertoire, I’m more of an intense color girl. I’m going to give this one a 4 for being moisturizing and being a great gluten-free lipstick. Looking for a nude with a bit of a shimmer? Summer Sands is for you.
Make sure to enter today’s giveaway for Summer Sands, and then back tomorrow for another shade!
