Red Apple Lipstick: Oh My Guava & New York

Disclaimer: This post contains press samples.
Hi loves!
Today I have a lipstick review for you from RedAppleLipstick.com!
Red Apple Lipstick is devoted to creating safe makeup products formulated without parabens, gluten, lead, and soy. The lipsticks I'm showing and reviewing for you today are vegan, gluten free, allergen free, paraben free, cruelty free, corn free, and formulated without GMOs. (That's a mouthful, right? Good!)
I can really see how much the people behind RAL care about creating safe and beautiful makeup that women (and men) can wear without worrying about having a reaction. On top of all of the ingredients they make sure to avoid, and all of the high quality ingredients they make sure to include,  Red Apple Lipstick also offers a 6-Month Money Back Guarantee if you are dissatisfied with their product for any reason! Now that you have the technical stuff, let's get onto the pretty lippies, shall we?

Nanshy Eyeshadow Brush Set

Disclaimer: This post contains press samples.
Hi loves! I have another Nanshy brush review and to cut to the chase--I'm happy!
These brushes are so soft and have really shown me how much of a difference brushes make, I really wish they had a wider selection! I'm going to try to keep this review short for those of you who may be interested but don't want to read a lot, because I did cover the quality pretty well in my review of the Foundation Brush Set.


PROs:
Extremely soft
Distribute Product Accurately (& Easily!!)
Multi-Purpose
No Shedding
Easy to Clean
Cruelty-Free, Vegan, and Synthetic
Affordable (Approx. $6 per brush)

CONs:
This is less of a con and more of preference, I'd like a wider selection of brushes. The quality is great and I'd like to get my hands on more blending brushes of different assortments. I know they have their Luxury Makeup Brush Set but I personally haven't tried it so I'm not sure how the brushes compare in diversity/similarity.

Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with how these brushes have changed my makeup application. I never believed in the hype of brushes and how they "change how your makeup goes on", but it's actually really difficult for me to go back to my old brushes now. Especially since they feel really scratchy compared to these! I try to use these for every purpose possible but, seven brushes can only do so much.

This brush set retails for $44.95 on Amazon.
I highly suggest giving these Nanshy brushes a try if you're looking for some good ones!
