N and I are lipstick lovers so when I heard about a green lipstick that transforms to a natural rosebud pink on your lips I knew I had to try it out!
Enter Frog Prince by Lipstick Queen. It is an emerald-green lipstick enriched with Vitamin E and Shea Butter that reacts with your bodies pH levels to transform in to your “perfect rose-pink lipstick shade” (or so it claims). If you’re thinking, “woah, that’s a big claim that it will transform in to everyone’s perfect pink shade” then you’re exactly where I was at when I walked in to Mecca and bought it off the lovely sales assistant.
It does sound incredible though, if it does what it claims it could turn in to my favourite every day lipstick shade. After all, we’ve all gone through the struggle of finding our “perfect everyday lipstick shade” so maybe this lippie will help us overcome that. Over the last two weeks I have, almost exclusively, worn Frog Prince and I thought I would tell you what I think.
This is the first thing you’ll notice when you see this lipstick, it really is bright emerald-green! But not to worry, one swipe on your lips and they will literally transform before your very eyes in to a lovely natural pink shade. Now, I know what you’re thinking… “Just because it works for me how do I know it will work for everyone?” The answer is, I can’t, but I did have my mum and N both test it out and it did look beautiful (and very different!) on all three of us.
This is probably my favourite thing about this lipstick! It is an interesting mix between a lipstick and a lip balm. It’s so creamy and hydrating that it basically acts as your lip balm and you definitely don’t need to prime your lips in any way before you use it. One thing I was worried about was the way it would wear off my lips and that was also something I loved! It wears off so naturally and just leaves your lips with a slight tint, but nothing too overwhelming! Love, love, love this formula!
Now this is where the lipstick will probably divide a few of you. It is definitely, by no means, a long-wearing lipstick. If you’re a lover of uber-matte liquid lipsticks and hate having to re-apply then I’ll tell you now, this lipstick isn’t for you. But if you like creamy finishes and don’t mind a touch up every now and then, I think you’ll love it! It lasts about 2-3 hours before I need to re-apply but the beautiful thing is you can re-apply whenever and wherever you want! Because it’s so creamy and sheer you don’t need to worry about perfect applications or using a mirror, a few smudges of your lips together will do the trick!
I’m about to start studying again soon and I think the long days in the classroom or days where I can’t really be bothered to do a full face of makeup but still want to look somewhat presentable are exactly when I will use this. It is so easy to re-apply and chuck in your bag, I know I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this lipstick and will most likely repurchase if I do ever run out!
