Red Apple Lipstick Review + Giveaway (CLOSED)

So this giveaway is totally delayed. Ughh, you may have noticed that I had some technical difficulties with my blog last week(end). It was down for a few days, but I’m back in action now! Better late than never, here is that vegan g-free giveaway that I mentioned last week! Since you guys really liked my “What’s in My Makeup Bag” post about natural, vegan, and cruelty-free beauty products, I decided it would be fun to introduce you to a new vegan, gluten-free makeup brand that I am absolutely in love with!

You are going to love this lipstick: here’s why!

Red Apple Lipstick is not your ordinary lipstick company. Sure, they have a wide array of gorgeous colors, but that’s not all. Red Apple Lipsticks and glosses are vegan, and lab tested free of gluten, parabens, toxins, and soy. They are also enriched with a gluten-free source of Vitamin E for awesome, all-day moisture! Red Apple Lipstick delivers natural lip products with long-lasting wearability, vibrant colors, and nourishing ingredients, made in the USA!

Red Apple Lipstick

This is the creamiest mineral lipstick I have ever tried! They really mean what they say by “all-day moisture!” With most drugstore lipsticks my lips get really dry after the first hour and I end up scrubbing the color off and applying a tinted chapstick, but that was not the case with Red Apple Lipstick. I was pleasantly surprised as to how smooth and moisturized my lips felt. Before applying the lip color, I exfoliated my lips with the Lip Exfoliator Stick and applied the Rallye Balm throughout the day. When it came time to do my makeup and apply my lipstick, it glided on like butter and stayed put! I am a huge fan of how opaque and pigmented the color was once applied compared to other mineral-based lipsticks. Most require layers of building color, but Red Apple Lipstick went on perfectly.

Red Apple Lipstick is an excellent choice for anyone who has gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease.
It’s a fact that ladies with Celiac Disease, or even a mild intolerance to gluten battle dry, chapped lips constantly. No lipstick should do harm to your delicate lips! Did you know your lips are only 4 dermal layers thick… compared to your thigh which is 16 dermal layers? No wonder they chap so easy! And when something upsets the natural balance in your lips, the damage is multiplied!

Enlightened Ice Cream + Giveaway (CLOSED)

Enlightened Ice Cream
This ice cream is seriously the cats meow. The definition of om nom nom.
If you’re looking for a tasty “good-for-you ice cream,” ENLIGHTENED has raised the bar!

“Michael, the founder and CEO, created ENLIGHTENED when he was working as a personal trainer. Both he and his clients loved ice cream and wished there were a healthy ice cream that they could enjoy. So Michael worked on his own recipe in the kitchen and became passionate about making a delicious and nutritious ice cream. And now here we are!” -Lily (Michael’s sister and social media & events manager for ENLIGHTENED) I love a family biz! Too cute!

_MG_9095_Enlightened Ice Cream With only 70 calories, 2g fat, 3g sugar, 5g fiber, and 8g of protein per bar, this ice cream is a dream come true! And it doesn’t end there, it’s also gluten-free and doesn’t contain any artificial sweeteners! Oh and for any of my bunnies that follow Weight Watchers, one bar has a PointsPlus value of only: 2pts!

_MG_9082_Enlightened Ice Cream That’s just how I like my ice cream… light on the calories, fat, and sugar, and packed with protein, fiber, and flavor!

_MG_9091_Enlightened Ice Cream ENLIGHTENED ice cream bars come in three flavors: FudgeCoffee, & Orange Cream.
So far I can’t decide between Fudge or Coffee as my favorite flav. It’s a toss up!
