Frog Prince - Review


By no means would I consider myself any sort of expert when it comes to makeup: au contraire. While I have my daily makeup routine that I love (mostly BareMinerals btw) I know I still have a lot to learn. But, when I discover something new and interesting, like this Frog Prince lipstick by Lipstick Queen, I of course have to share it with my readers! 

My mom actually introduced me to this fascinating lipstick when she gifted it to me on my birthday! I had my gift waiting patiently in its wrapping for my birthday morning so I could open it before I left to catch a plane to California. It is always nice to have a little something special to mark the day even if you can't fully celebrate that day (sitting on a plane all day in my case). Anyway, I'll be honest I was a bit confused when I opened it and found a lipstick in a deep green shade. As it turns out, this intriguing lipstick goes on clear and changes automatically to your best natural lip shade. Using the pH in your skin as a guide it shifts to a shade that compliments your skin tone. I thought that was such a fun idea, not to mention totally useful! No more having to hope a shade will work on you, because you know this one will! On me it turns to a soft sheer reddish-pink, just enough punch of color while still looking natural. It is the perfect color to wear during the day or for a casual event that just needs a touch of something special. 

I love that they went with such a fun whimsical theme calling it "Frog Prince" alluding to its changing qualities and 'perfect match' characteristics, and then shaded it in a froggy green! The box is  just so cute too with a castle scene and lounging frog on the side. Overall, I am really enjoying this color as a great everyday lip shade to brighten up any look. I definitely recommend giving it a try!


Lipstick: $25 at Lipstick Queen/Ulta/Nordstrom. Top: Anthropologie (1/2/3). Necklace: kate spade. Earrings: Gorjana.

    1. It has the sort of waxy consistency of a chapstick, so I guess I would say it has a glossy finish, but not super shiny. I really love how natural the color is!
