Just last year, Red Apple Lipstick expanded their gluten-free, non-toxic makeup line to include six new mineral blushes and a bronzer. I’ve been wanting to try them out for a while now, and finally got my hands on their most universally-flattering blush shade – ‘Gotta Glow‘ – and their universal bronzer. Here’s a look at both, which I’ve been wearing together non-stop lately!
Red Apply Lipstick Mineral Blushes & Bronzer
When creating their blushes and bronzer, Red Apple Lipstick’s goal was to eliminate the common frustrations when it comes to cheek products – from hard to blend formulas, to heavy, cakey powders that just sit on top of the skin. Leaving out fillers like talc and plasticizers, they designed their pigment-rich mineral blushes and bronzer to apply smoothly and evenly, leaving behind a lightweight finish that leaves skin looking like skin, with a ‘lit from within’ radiance.
In addition to being filler-free, Red Apple Lipstick’s mineral blushes and bronzer are also non-toxic and allergen-friendly. Their formulas are free from parabens, nano-particles, fragrance, lead, petroleum, gluten, nuts, corn, dairy, wheat, and soy. They’re also vegan and cruelty-free!
Red Apple Lipstick’s blushes are available in six shades that cover a large range of skin tones. Need help finding a shade? Visit their website here to see what they recommend for your unique skin tone!

Swatches of Red Apple Lipstick Gotta Glow Blush (one layer, multiple layers) & Sundrop Bronzer (one layer, multiple layers)
Red Apply Lipstick Gotta Glow Blush
The Gotta Glow Blush is a gorgeous peachy-pink with a subtle gold micro-shimmer. It reminds me a lot of NARS Orgasm blush, only it’s a bit more understated and subtle, and also glitter-free. According to Red Apply Lipstick, Gotta Glow is the most universally flattering shade out the six. The coverage starts out fairly sheer – one light layer adds a sheer wash of peachy-pink and a soft glow, while 3-4 layers adds more depth and warmth along with a more noticeable radiant sheen. (You can definitely skip the luminizer with this one!)
I use an angled blush brush to apply this. I’ll tap (rather than swipe) the brush in the pan, as the formula does produce quite a bit of kickback. However, the formula is soft, velvety, and very fine in texture, which translates to a smooth, weightless finish.
Red Apply Lipstick Sundrop Bronzer
The Sundrop Bronzer is a beautiful medium matte bronzer that adds both warmth and definition to the complexion. Though the color is on the warmer side, it’s in no way orange-y. I’ll apply it along the top of my forehead, around the temples, and under the cheekbones and around the jawline, where it produces a natural-looking shadow and a sun-kissed warmth. Its soft, smooth texture can go from sheer to near full-coverage, while still offering a natural looking finish.
