Review & Swatches: Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Lipstick

Frog Prince Lipstick by Lipstick Queen is described as a "magical shade that turns each pair of lips into their perfect pink." I have been interested in Lipstick Queen in awhile and was always eyeing Hello Sailor, but decided to go with Frog Prince mostly because I was intrigued by the green turning into pink. It's not a new concept, but the presentation of the product was instantly convinced me to get it. Frog Prince contains 0.07 ounces of product and retails for $25.

My eyes were full of hearts when I saw this in the tube.

The swatch though - super unimpressive. I took this picture about 30 minutes after the swatch and it does not turn any darker on the hand. The real magic is on the lips.

The consistency of the lipstick is thin, but still moisturizing since it has shea butter and vitamin E. I don't need a separate lip balm when I wear this as well.

In the above and below lip swatch photos, the after shots were taken 10 minutes after application. The color is a dark pink but still natural. I can layer it on and then it turns darker and more fuchsia on me. Once I hit that point, it doesn't change anymore.

Taken with natural light
 One of the things I like about this that it kind of stains my lips in comparison to Dior Addict Lip Glow, another lip product that self adjusts to be the perfect pink. The color I get from Frog Prince does come off my lips if I rub hard on them, but it doesn't transfer when I eat or drink. 

The finish isn't quite glossy/wet like what Lipstick Queen says. It's more of just a natural sheen to me? I have Nivea A Kiss of Moisture Essential Lip Care and both these products give me the same sheen on my lips. 

In the above picture, the left was taken 10 minutes after application and the right is after 11 hours. The color on the right is what the color ultimately ends up on me. I did reapply 2-3 times afterwards and then just used the Nivea lip balm afterwards for the rest of the day. 

There is no smell / fragrance to me. I'm personally okay with scents, but I like to mention it to people with sensitive lips / noses. 

The packaging is slightly rubberized and I like how it feels since I feel like it wouldn't just slip out of my hands. I love the contrast between the outside packaging and bullet. It kind of shocks people too when I pull it out to reapply when my lips feel dry. 

Final thoughts: I'm utterly in love with this lipstick. I wanted something pink and lowkey to wear to my office for work. The color is more... punchier? sassier? than what I get from Dior Addict Lip Glow (which I also love and will review), but not as moisturizing/thick. The color also stains my lips a bit so that the color won't transfer to other things. Since the color is supposed depend on the individual, I feel like the $25 spent on this might be too much of a risk for some people. Nonetheless, I do like it and have been wearing it everyday. I will repurchase when I run out because it is my favorite out of 3 self-adjusting pink lip products I own. 



  1. We literally have one mind, I have a similar post queued up for the Frog Prince and Dior Addict Lip Glow haha. I agree that Frog Prince is lovely and just so easy to wear, it has pretty much been in my purse since I got it. It's also such a conversation starter when you pull it out, everyone's usually just in shock over the green.

  2. ♥ hahaha great minds think alike!! I also bought a Korean brand version, but can never remember the brand. I think I'll use the Dior Lip Glow more during winter because it's so much more moisturizing. Frog Prince is perfect for spring/summer though!

  3. Definitely agree! Frog Prince is a lot more lightweight and perfect for warmer weather.

  4. I've never heard of this lipstick but REALLY want it! It sounds super interesting and I want to see how it works on my lips! Thanks for the great review!

  5. I think it was released recently, but oh sheesh. I'm so glad this is now a thing because I love it!!!

    and thank you for stopping by!

  6. Ooh the swatch looks so natural, but it looks quite striking in your full face photo! Love the glossy sheen it gives you, looks so moisturIzing. I tried out a super cheap green to pink lipstick from born pretty and it went a really bold bright pink on me! It was a nice color but a bit too bold for me, I think this one would suit me better.

  7. Oh how interesting!!! I really love the initial and final color you get with this! At first when I saw the thumbnail I thought you were reviewing an artsy fun green lipstick but like yourself was intrigued that it's a green to pink and then color changing product! I think that would be a bit too much of a price tag for me to consider buying a color changing product, I personally like buying things knowing what color they are for sure but I would totally give a color changing lippie a shot in the future! Also I've yet to try the lip glow but it's included in a dior palette I bought so I can't wait to see how it feels and looks! Oh and your hair is looking fabulous dear!

  8. I keep forgetting that this isn't really a unique concept because a lot of other cheaper brands have stuff like this x) I kind of want to get more but I'm a bit worried the end color would be waaaay too much.

    When I wear this, it completely replaces my lip balm. Which is really nice because I only need one lip product for the whole day and won't get on other things like how tinted balms sometimes do!

  9. How I wish it was actually a funky green color!! I work in an office so I'm so muted now compared to a few months ago.

    I actually just cut my hair!! It's an inch or two below my shoulders and I have nooo idea how to style it right now.

  10. JEALOUS THAT YOU HAVE THIS, BUT AT LEAST I CAN RUB IT IN UR FACE THAT I HAVE HELLO SAILOR. Although I mainly wanted this for the packaging, gotta say the colour is super pretty. But anyways, can't wait to whip out Hello Sailor in public so people can see me try to apply blue lipstick sans mirror :'D
