Red Apple Lipstick Company makes beautiful healthier lipsticks, glosses, lip liners, and lip care products. However, this certified vegan company also makes nontoxic formulations of gorgeous eye shadows. They kindly sent along their Fall/Winter 2013 collection with a compact to store for this review.
I must confess the first thing you notice is the how stunning these matte shades are. The colors, which I also swatched for you are: Sugar & Spice (soft cinnamon with beige); Sage Rage ( taupe with yellow-green); Clean Slate (medium gray); Pixie Dust (whisper of pink); Secret Garden (forest green), and VooDoo (medium purple).

The shades were fun pairing up for different looks. Usually, I am not one that typically wears green eye shadows, but Secret Garden (for lid color), Clean Slate (for the crease), and Pixie Dust (for the highlight) was quite attractive with my dark brown eyes. Another excellent combination I loved was VooDoo (for the lid), Sugar & Spice (for the crease) and Pixie Dust again (for the highlight shade).

If you are trying to find safer cosmetics that are made in the United States, then I suggest visiting Red Apple Lipstick Company. The shadows shown retail for $18.95 each. Do become acquainted with their fine products because I know you like them once you do.
