What a cool little find! I have the chappiest chapped lips around, so I have given up on lipstick. Even most lip balms and glosses are drying for me, and so many contain irritating compounds like menthol or peppermint. I'm always on the lookout for moisturizing sheer tints that are not so thick that they ball up and not so pigmented that they wear off unevenly. I happened to be browsing some safe cosmetic database I read about (can't remember the name now) and this popped up as among the safest of the glosses. So of course I cross-checked with my indispensible MUA, and went straight for Apple Plum Pie. $3 and I love it! Just enough color, completely not drying, don't need a mirror, no finger application (boo on you, rosebud salve) and lasts a decent amount of time. I had tried Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper based on the raves here but found it a little oily. Maybe I got a bad one, who knows. But I love these, now have one for my handbag and one for the makeup drawer in several shades, but this one is by far the best. Fun, pretty, cheap and non-toxic!
My new favorite! I got it just today in Big Apple Red. It's not too bold but too faint... Just perfect. It smells so cute too, kinda like apples. It keeps its promise as a lip balm. And this wonder was very cheap for what it offers! $2.99 at Rite-Aid... This product is beautiful.
Love this product! Soft sheer color, very moisturizing & easy to use. Super-cheap @ drugstores (got mine on sale for $1.79). I bought 'Apple Plum Pie' & 'Apple Blueberry Pie' - love the plum one better. It's very MLBB & dewy. Love the packaging, love the formula, love the price & convenience.
gorgeous colour, and looks so good on my tan indian skin. feels so smooth on the lips! a nice appley smell. so cute how there's a little apple in the middle of the stick! it doesn't last on my lips very long, but what else can i expect for $5?! i just reapply every couple of hours. great cheap product
Inexpensive yet quality alternative to the more expensive lip balms, lip butters, etc. like this. It took me a bit to decide which to buy, as there aren't many shades and most of them looked alike to me but I would deem that the only flaw and I plan to try other colors! I bought Caramel Apple (shimmery light nude shade) and Garnet Gala (shimmery garnet/ruby red shade) and both are very flattering with my fair skin and I love them both. They give a very subtle yet sophisticated and pretty result. The apple lip balm center and color surrounding it is a cute design, and they are really moisturizing. I don't need any other lip balm before using or alongside them. I like that it feels and actually looks more like a lipstick but with the ease of a balm and gloss in one. The apple scent is a bit fake but it disappears immediately and isn't really bad at all. And lastly, at $3, they are a steal! I recommend. :)
I bought this in "Pink Lady" and love it. The formula is creamy and feels comforting on the lips. It moisturizes and adds a gorgeous layer of light pink to my lips which is perfect for every day around the house, doing errands, and keeping lips healthy.
I like that if it has any flavor I can't taste it. I don't like my balms to be flavored as I'll tend to lick them off. The easy of use it great and you won't need a mirror. It's packaged so you can toss it on your purse and go.
I will definitly buy more colors of this balm.
Great spring/summer product!
This lip balm is very pigmented. Though the colour faded fast, it kept a lip tint effect on my lips throughout the entire day AND kept my lips nice and plump. The smell can turn some people off because it's really strong but I personally really like it. It smells like any other apple candy and it taste like how it smells. The name of this lip balm has the word "glossy" in it. I didn't see that. The outer part of this lip balm is like pure pigment and in the middle, an apple shaped glittery pink mess which seemingly doesn't really do anything.
This a new lip balm + gloss and it's really nice. I can't speak for all the shades but Apple Plum Pie is a beautiful light pink/ cool mauve color. The lipstick itself has a light pink apple in the center and surrounding that is a darker purpley color -- but rest assured it does not go on purple. When I rub my lips together it has a light fake apple taste, but nothing terrible. My lips feel so smooth and this does not settle in the lines on my lips, which is the first thing I noticed.
Absolutely worth the $3 I paid for this. I can't speak for how long it lasts, but I don't care, I'll happily reapply. The tube is nothing special but if it was then it probably wouldn't be just $3! I highly recommend this shade for just about every skin tone, especially if you like cool tones and mauves, in my opinion it's the perfect light mauve. Hope that helps!
