Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Blush ($24) arrives just in time for Summer 2016 and joins the Frog Prince family that includes a new sparkling lipgloss and the cult favorite transforming lipstick.
I would just like to express how I ran around in circles and squealed when I heard about Frog Prince Blush. I just love the idea of having a matching shade of blush to go along with my beloved Frog Prince Lipstick.
This enchanting green shade of gel blush tinges your cheeks a delightful shade of Shrek green so, you can feel as glamorous as Princess Fiona! I’m kidding, I’m kidding! But I suspect it is the shade of pretty pink that tinges Fiona’s flawless green complexion!
This little blush comes housed in a pink metallic palette with a mirror and weights in at 0.7 oz. It might be green but it won’t turn you green. Unfortunately, because I had a brief moment where I was like, “Wow, wouldn’t green blush totally be cool!” After that I had a flash of, “Yeah, you’d look like the dork you are wearing green blush…!” No need to bring more attention to the fact I’m already a dork right? 🙂
Unlike the lipstick and the lipgloss which lean towards being a darker berry shade, Frog Prince Blush is all about a healthy shade of pink. Or if you will, as the brand calls it, fairytale pink. Makes me feel like the princess I’m not when I call it fairytale pink.
In the pot, it is in fact a shade of frog green but directly after application on cheeks in shifts to a pretty bright pink on my medium fair skin. It’s quite straight because swatched on my arm I could not get it to change from a berry grape but when I applied it on my face it instantly turned into a pretty, natural pink! I loved it because its my ideal minimal, natural makeup blush and go kind of color. Fresh, pretty, and natural! The color is supposed to adapt to your skin tone according to your pH level but I only tried it on myself so, I’m not sure how it’ll look on other skin tones. I do think it’s pigmented enough to work on a variety of lighter and darker shades but those with ruddy or redness might want to conceal well before application.
The formula is a thin, lightly emollient formula that has a dewy finish. It contains Vitamin E, shea butter, avocado, jojoba, and olive oil. The formula is quite hydrating and doesn’t feel tacky or sticky nor does it cling to drier areas on my face but oily skin might want to apply with a blush and buff color into your skin to tone down the dewy finish!
I’m pretty picky with cream blushes as they tend to fade fast on me. Frog Prince Blush lasts a nice solid six hours for me before showing some signs of fading.
As the weather starts to warm up, lighter, fresher makeup is most definitely the rage and Frog Prince Blush will be a delightful way to get a natural, youthful pink blush on your cheeks that’s lightweight and very flattering!
