Red Apple Lipstick Brand Review

Boy was I excited to come home and find a package from Red Apple Lipstick in my mailbox!  I have been wanting to try these products because they are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and paraben-free.  These products were sent to me to try and review.  This company not only sells lipsticks, but eyeshadows, and other cosmetics, too!

The first product I received was a lipstick.  Being that I love Audrey Hepburn, I just had to try the color, "Audrey," that they named after her.  It is a warm neutral pink.  It is a little warmer than the picture that appears on their website. But, it's still very pretty.  It's actually very close to my natural lip color.  I would like to try a cooler and brighter pink for the summer, maybe the color "Sugar Sugar."  I love how creamy, shiny, and moisturizing this lipstick is!  And, it smells so good and fruity! I would love to try a lip gloss, too!



The second product I received was a Z-Palette, containing the colors "Champagne" and "Dirty Girl."
I was especially excited to receive the "Champagne" color.  It was at the top of my wish list!  It applied a little darker than I expected, but it's still a nice, light neutral.  It applies so smoothly, and it has a pretty sheen to it.  It's not glittery, but has a nice shine.  

Maybe I forgot to read the description, but I was surprised that "Dirty Girl" was so green in the package!  However, when I applied it, it ended up being a mushroomy neutral, that I applied in the crease of my eyes with the "Champagne."  I don't think I would purchase that particular color again, but I love the consistency of these eyeshadows.  I definitely have a wishlist of more colors I would like to try!

My Eyeshadow Wishlist
- Buttercream
- Porcelain
- Violet Vintage
- Graphite Glam
- Silver Lining
- Iced Mocha
- Espresso
- Blue Jay


These products are beautiful, but unfortunately out of my price range.  However, if you're able to afford them, or need gluten-free cosmetics, they are well worth the price!

Thank you, Red Apple Lipstick!

Vegan 2-Ingredient Strawberry Banana Ice Cream

I promise...you really only need two ingredients to make this amazing vegan Strawberry Banana Ice Cream!  My friends couldn't believe it the first time I posted a picture of my Ice Cream made from just bananas. They had to try it for themselves!  Then we started brainstorming the endless possibilities of flavors!  I thought I'd share this one with you, because it's a quick and easy way to have a special treat without the dairy!

All you need is two *over ripe* frozen bananas and three or four frozen strawberries.  I just peel the bananas, wash and hull the strawberries, throw them in a plastic bag, and freeze them overnight.  The bananas need to be over ripe or your ice cream won't be as sweet and creamy. I know this from experience.

Then, you throw them all in a food processor (I used my Ninja.) and blend until it becomes a nice creamy consistency, without chunks.

Serve and enjoy! This serves 2-3 people. When you think about it, you could actually have this for breakfast.  It's just strawberries and bananas.  I'll bet your kids would award you "Parent of the Year" for serving them "ice cream" for breakfast. ;)






Are you brainstorming flavor ideas, too?  I'm thinking Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Banana Bread flavors are next on my list.  I would love to hear your flavor ideas in the comments below!
