“Frog Prince,” the Mood Ring of Lipsticks

A little over two months ago, I read a post on Man Repeller about a green lipstick that transforms in color to enhance the natural shade of one’s lips. According to the article, there is a specific ingredient in the product that makes it react with a user’s pH balances, which results in the lipstick changing from green to varying shades of pink. At first, I was a bit skeptical, but being the beauty junkie that I am, I wanted to try it out for myself.

So, on a trip to Ulta with my two cousins, I came across a similar tube of green lipstick. While Lipstick Queen’s “Frog Prince” lipstick isn’t the exact kind that Leandra used, the box said it had the same effect. After contemplating whether or not to fork over a whopping 25 bucks for this obscure cosmetic, I eventually decided to give it a go.

At first, the product was extremely sheer and it almost seemed like a tinted lip balm. However, within about ten minutes of applying it, my lips turned a natural shade of rosy pink. “Frog Prince” is great because it isn’t drying like some lip products can be and it has pretty nice staying power, so it isn’t necessary to reapply so many times throughout the day.

Since the whole ‘no makeup, makeup’ trend became a thing, this product is definitely a good choice if you’re interested in going au natural for the day, but don’t want to face the world completely bare faced.
