We all know the story of The Frog Prince. A spoiled princess reluctantly becomes chummy with a Frog Prince, one thing leads to another, and before she knows it, she's laying a wet one on him. Instantaneously, he's the prince of her dreams.
A paramount lesson in things aren't always what they seem, Lipstick Queen's Frog Prince Blush is similarly deceptive...and magical. The dewy gel-cream formula is lily-pad green, but when applied to the cheeks, the off-kilter hue transforms into a wash of pink color. And not just any pink, but one that's adapted to you pH level—mood-ring style. When I tried it on myself via Facebook Live, I wasn't just impressed with the metamorphosis, I was surprisingly into its creamy texture—despite being a powder blush devotee. The product deposited smoothy with a blush brush for a natural-looking, cheekbone-carving flush. It was so easy, in fact, I fear I got a little heavy-handed in retrospect! But that's nothing a little blending can't fix.
Because I couldn't just stop at a green blush, I also gave the brand's Frog Prince Lip Gloss a go. With its sparkly, emerald green sheen, it was even more intimidatingly frog-hued. When it first touched my lips, unlike the blush it really looked green. But with a few swipes and smacks, it was a lustrous dark pink that earned me many a compliment around the office.
Now, I know what you're wondering: Why bother with green in the first place? Well, for one it's customized to you minute-to-minute, which is not something you can say for every rouge. Not to mention, it will no doubt make for a killer party trick come touch up time.
