I like make-up. I like rooting for the little guy. And I like when good things happen to good people.
So when I found out that the team at Red Apple Lipstick just won Best GF Cosmetic Brand from GFREEK, I was thrilled for them. It's a pretty huge deal that this small, husband & wife operation beat out some big companies. To me, it means that people are starting to vote, not only for awards like GFREEK gives out, but with their money, for companies that have an interest in selling high-quality, awesome products with the consumer's health in mind.
I don't have kids yet, but this is akin to the feeling I imagine I'll get when they get on the honor roll. So why do I feel like such a proud parent? I feel like a total hipster saying this, but I was way into Red Apple before they won this mega fab award, so if that doesn't give me GF cosmetic street cred, I don't know what does.
A little bit about Red Apple: Not only are all of the products gluten-free, they are also paraben-free and vegan. Right now, just lip and eyeshadow products are available, but I'm hoping (begging?) for more soon. Not celiac? You should STILL check them out. My non-GF little sister picked up some gloss and loves it. There you go, RAL. Teenage girl seal of approval.
