I’m so excited to share Red Apple Lipstick’s NEW lipstick shade in Copper Candy as well as the sale of their current shade Petal to the Metal, newly released & discounted in honor of celebrating Galentine’s Day! Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating love in all its forms and these two shades are perfect for the occasion! They’re also absolutely gorgeous for any season of the year. 👌💗💄🙌
Petal to the Metal–the perfect medium, neutral pink with balanced undertones & a subtle cool-toned sheen for depth and dimension. I’m not one for the matte lip trend, so I absolutely love when lipsticks have some form of pearlescent finish because it adds shine that creates the illusion of fuller lips. Did you know that? It’s true! Petal to the Metal is one of the very few lipsticks I’ve actually almost used right down to the bottom of the tube (and for someone who’s obsessed with lippies of all kinds, that’s reeeally saying something!). Petal to the Metal is by no means a “baby pink” and will definitely not wash you out. It’s also not a bright lipstick shade, which is what makes it so classic and lovely for any day. I would also consider this to be a universally flattering shade. It’s a fun, but grown-up color at the same time and it’s my go-to shade for literally ANY occasion. When I don’t know what lipstick to wear, I’ll reach for Petal to the Metal. It’s the perfect shade for the office, a job interview, a first date, a night out with the girls, and any special occasion however casual or formal. It’s what I would imagine a modern English Rose🌹 in lipstick form. I’ve actually worn this shade to every single wedding I’ve gone to since I purchased this shade! (full disclosure: I purchased Petal to the Metal with my own money years ago and RAL just sent me a new one for the sake of this review to model it since mine was way past the expiration date- I even offered to brave the bacteria for the sake of lip swatch photos, but they were kind of enough to send me a new one 😍🙏💖). Petal to the Metal has no scent and is an incredibly moisturizing & creamy formula! This is such a beautiful shade for every season & occasion!
Copper Candy-your new favorite nude meets blush pink with an overlay of subdued coppery-rose gold shimmer! Copper Candy is such a unique, but incredibly wearable nude lipstick that doesn’t wash me out at all 🙌🙌🙌, which is my major concern & issue with nude shades since I’m so fair. Copper Candy is shimmery, but NOT sparkly! There’s a big difference and one that’s very important to me. I can’t stand feeling chunks of glitter on my lips when I rub my lips together and I’m just not a fan of overt glitter, in general. Copper Candy feels smooth on the lips, is a bit less creamy than other formulas because it’s the Instant Color formula so it stays put, and does not leave a trace of shimmer as it wears off evenly. It’s also a really versatile shade because it can be applied on bare lips, with your natural lip color enhancing the overall tone (I have like no pigment left in my lips 😂, so this shade appears very true-to-color on me) or you can apply it on top of a lip liner or matte lipstick to create a myriad of shades! Copper Candy is like a kiss of rose gold on the lips that’s fun, flirty, and makes me think of brighter days ahead. If nudes aren’t normally your thing, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with Copper Candy! It’s daytime appropriate, it’s not too much for the office, and it’s subtle enough for pairing with a bold eye look. And, it’s another shade that’s perfect for any time of the year, as well!
