Frog Prince from Lipstick Queen

Life's too short... kiss some frogs disguised as princes, buy color changing lipstick, and then make a funny face while wearing it!

The lipstick I am wearing in this picture is actually green! It changes colors with the warmth of your lips. I actually watched it changed colors right before me eyes and I must say, it was worth it.

 The official description is as follows from the Ulta website:
Get heads turning with Frog Prince, a remarkable lilypad green lipstick that transforms lips into a pretty rosebud pink. Don't be fooled by the deep green hue of this semi-sheer lipstick. The green reacts with the warmth of your lips turning them an intense, fairy tale rose while vitamin E and shea butter keep lips soft, hydrated and deliciously kissable. And just like true love itself, this enchanting shade was made to last. Lips remain their blissful pink all day long from just one lingering, magical Frog Prince kiss.

But I must say my favorite part of the description is the quote before it. It's the right mix of positivity, hopefulness, and fun. 
"Things aren't always what they seem. Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince!" Poppy King, Lipstick Queen Founder.
 This lipstick feels more like chapstick when it's on the lips. Being more of a chapstick fan myself, I love that quality. It's not going to just fade off of your lips because of how hydrating it is. Plus no worrying about carrying a lipstick AND chapstick in case your lips get dry throughout the day.

I also find it extremely difficult to find the right shade of pink for my skin tone. I've been told I am in between cool & warm skin tones so I can pull off both types of lip colors. What I've actually found this to mean - My makeup life is extra challenging. I rarely find the right foundation shade or lipstick shade. It's a crapshoot when I go to a drugstore since I can't test the colors first. That's the reason this lipstick initially appealed to me. I thought it may turn into a good shade of pink that suits me specifically since it works with the warmth of my lips. And, eureka, it's perfect!

Overall: I am extremely happy with the shade of this lipstick and especially the consistency of it. Lipstick Queen did good on this one. The brand has many more products and their official website is right here.

Side Note: This brand is amazing because they actually have products listed per zodiac sign. They know just what to do to make me buy more makeup from them! They are speaking to my soul. Would these colors look good on me? Actually no (that blasted skin tone problem) but putting in the effort to be a little different and corny = customer for life.
