Frog Prince in a Bronze Lagoon: Enchanting New Products from Lipstick Queen and Sisley

Above: Lipstick Queen Frog Prince magically transforms to a customized pink.
I must admit, I haven't given green lip color a proper spin since high school; in those tender and formative years, I had a mood lipstick that transformed to a blaringly hot pink and a pale mint number from MAC that was more shimmer than pigment.  That being said, I may have had a reservation (or ten) when I gingerly swiped the latest release from the venerable Lipstick Queen line--Frog Prince--onto my lips.  Imagine my delight when I witnessed the sheer formula slowly morph into the most beautiful, glimmering medium pink hue.  Couple this wonder with the latest long- lasting eye shadow from Sisley and a fresh and whimsical post is necessitated! 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of both Frog Prince and the Sisley Phyto-Eye Twists in action as well as the Bottom Line...

*Frog Prince (available at Space.NK, Barney's NY and Lipstick Queen)  is a bold green bullet that amusingly reminds me of one of my favorite beverages...matcha tea.  Although the formula applies sheerly (making swatching a bit of a challenge) it deepens to a "my lips but better" shade (read: decidedly NOT hot pink) over the course of a few minutes.  The buttery smooth texture adds plush luminosity and hydration to the lips and the pigmentation takes on the lasting power of a stain...brilliant!

Get ready for an intensely romantic fairy tale rose with a softly glossy finish.

Frog Prince is a remarkable emerald green lipstick that transforms into a magical rosebud pink as soon as it touches your lips. By reacting and adapting to the natural pH of your lips, Frog Prince becomes your own custom shade of rosebud pink, working perfectly in harmony with your complexion.

The luscious, semi-sheer texture is enriched with Vitamin E and Shea Butter, which keeps lips soft, hydrated and deliciously kissable.

Petal-soft, semi-sheer, and moisturizing with a softly glossy sheen.

The ultimate, flattering rosebud pink that adapts to each and every skin tone.

Nourishing formula for maximum comfort thanks to Vitamin E and Shea Butter.

Long-lasting color.

I've also been experimenting with the gorgeously versatile *Sisley Phyto-Eye Twists.  The retractable liner-meets-shadow formula glides on with precision to create color, depth and a satin finish that formidably doesn't budge until removed.  

I adore sweeping Bronze shade (which is more of a glimmering khaki-taupe than a warm bronze) onto my upper lid and smudging it along my lower lash line and adding a bit of the bold, deep peacock blue Lagoon shade to my lower waterline for a classic effect (as demonstrated in the images that follow).  

I am floored by the crease-free lasting power of these shadow sticks...they are reminiscent of the By Terry Ombre Blackstars (reviewed HERE and HERE) but come in shades that aren't a part of the By Terry regular collection, thereby eliminating redundancy in my eyeshadow collection. 

Official details, courtesy of Neiman Marcus:

Phyto-Eye Twist is an all-in-one eye make-up solution: eye shadow + pencil + eyeliner. The "jumbo" tip blends and glides to color the eyelids, easily applying graphic make-up or drawing an XXL line. The skincare formula is enriched with plant-based active ingredients (Green Tea, White Lily, Camellia) and protects the delicate skin of the eyelids.

The gliding, ultra-sensory, waterproof texture allows an ultra-easy application and a flawless hold all day long.

Its magnetic shades enhance your look in a single twist and offer a multitude of finishes.

Fun and practical, there is no need to sharpen this new zebra-look jumbo pencil.

Apply directly to the eyelids:
  • For a veil of color: apply to eyelid then blend color with fingertip.
  • For an intense look: directly apply color to eyelid with the pencil.
  • For a graphic look: use the XXL eyeliner to accentuate the lash line.
All make-up styles are possible, simply vary how you apply the product to suit your mood.

Bottom Line: If you love pink lipsticks with a twist, then Frog Prince (available at Space.NKBarney's NY and Lipstick Queen) is for you; additionally, for one of most utilitarian and long lasting eye shadows on the market, I implore you to consider the Sisley Phyto-Eye Twists

What's new in YOUR corner of the world?

Good things ahead, including a skincare update, even more lip color and a fresh FOTD. 

Hope your week is off to a superb start!
