The allure of cranberry color is simply enchanting, and it effortlessly adds a festive touch to your look. 

Dive into the vibrant world of Red Apple Lipstick’s best shades to achieve that perfect cranberry lip for this year’s Thanksgiving celebration.

  • Risque: A warm-toned red that radiates brightness and beauty. It can be worn boldly with more than one coat and boasts orange undertones, making it ideal for those with warm or neutral undertones. Say goodbye to a red that turns pink – this one’s for you.
  • Red Apple: A solid classic signature apple red lipstick with a glamorous, bright red hue and a soft pink undertone. Its creamy, moisturizing formula allows you to wear it bold for an attention-grabbing red lip or apply it softer for a subtle pinky-red stain.
  • Reddish Fetish: Immerse yourself in a rich, deep pinky-red with a subtle hint of brown undertones. 

This neutral red, leaning slightly cooler than its warmer counterpart, Barcelona, offers a captivating shade devoid of any shimmer or frost. 

Enjoy the sophistication of a smooth, matte finish that effortlessly complements various looks.

  • Rebel!: Savor the richness of a deep, luscious blue-based red that looks slightly darker than the iconic Red. 

This shade, known as Rebel!, is devoid of shimmer but radiates with an intense shine, adding a bold and captivating allure to your look.

The beauty of these lipsticks lies in their mix-and-match capabilities, seamlessly blending to create your perfect, unique shade. 

Enjoy the freedom to personalize your cranberry-inspired look with these captivating hues.

Bold lips are the epitome of chic, and achieving this look is delightfully simple. 

All you need is a lipstick, a lip pencil, and optionally, a concealer for refining lip shape. Embark on an autumnal adventure with accented lips that exude seasonal vibes.

For a daring touch, explore some of Red Apple Lipstick’s darker shades:

  • Fierce: Consider a red shade lipstick, but make sure it has elegant purple and some brownish undertones. Apply lightly for a stunning reddish maroon lip stain or build up for a more intense and bold lip look.
  • Wine & Dandy: A fabulous choice for a Thanksgiving makeup look, especially if you prefer a subtle wine stain. 

Apply with our lip brush, blot, and revel in a beautiful and light berry stain.
