Green Queens


What It Is: Lipstick Queen is a beloved cult beauty brand that’s hitting the Canadian scene via Murale. Created by Poppy King, the 20-year-old brand is known for their constant innovations and on-trend hues in the world of lipstick – and beyond. One of their standout products has to be Lipstick Queen’s Frog Prince lipstick, which comes in a pretty metallic pink tube and rolls up to be a flattering shade of…green. In actuality, the lipstick is made from a pH-reacting formula that adapts to suit your skin and lip tone instantly, for a lovely pink hue that’s perfectly flattering to your unique complexion.

The unconventional lipstick is so popular, in fact, that two more fairy tale-esque products have been added to the line – a sparkly lip gloss and a smooth cream blush. The shimmery lip gloss gives your pucker a natural rosey tint, while the translucent blush starts off subtle but is totally buildable for that flushed, just-met-Prince-Charming look. Buy one item or the entire collection as a fabulous introduction to this hip brand!

And of course, the Frog Prince collection isn’t all Lipstick Queen has going on. Visit their website to peruse even more swoonworthy beauty picks!

Who It’s For: Your best friend, who has kissed plenty of frogs. Yourself, to push yourself to actually wear a lipstick you know will always be flattering. Your sister, as a great birthday gift.

What It Costs: The lip gloss and lipstick are $33 each, the blush is $32.

Where It’s At: You can buy Lipstick Queen in Canada exclusively at Murale stores nationwide.

  4. Alyssa says:

    I can’t say I’ve kissed any frogs but I have found a special someone 😊

  5. Heather Swanson says:

    I call my boyfriend Mr. Whiskers since he has a white beard I always laughed when I noticed the pink lipstick & told him he better check the mirror..

  6. Aria says:

    I’d been friends with a Frog Prince in disguise for years! It was at a ‘ball’ (actually a NYE party) that I finally realized he was a prince after all.

  7. doreen lamoureux says:

    I subscribe by email 🙂 I found my prince. He was driving the limousine while I was at a staff party. A couple of months later we connected and stayed that way.

  8. Joan G. says:

    Since I met my husband all the previous men in my life I consider to be frogs.

  9. Anne Derkat says:

    I always knew by the 2nd date whether or not the fellow would turn out to be a prince. I’ve now been married to my prince for 12 years.

  10. intensev5 says:

    I kissed my frog – 21 years ago!! He’s definitely my prince now….. I couldn’t see me life without him.

  11. Only ever kissed one prince and the way he looked after me this summer when I fractured both ankles just made him even more special

  12. DebP says:

    I kissed a frog and a prince, and ended up with the frog, but that’s OK because the prince is a little weird.

  13. Jennifer Deol says:

    I met my Prince 8 years ago at the warehouse that we both worked at. We went on our first date on November 20th, 2008. We moved in together 2 months later! He truly is my “Happily Ever After”.

  14. Aimee says:

    We had a pet frog/toad that we found for awhile,but we didn’t kiss him. Love the color changing lipstick, I definitely want to try it. I am a subscriber

  15. I had a lipstick similar to this (looks one colour, goes on another) at university. It was my good luck lipstick and I always had a great time dancing/partying when I wore it. Even kissed a boy or two when wearing it.

  16. Alison K says:

    I’m a Canadian Gift Guide subscriber. My real-life ‘frog prince’ story would only be the frog portion as I’m still kissing the frogs hoping to find the prince 😉 Reading the stories above gives me hope. Thanks

  21. jasmyth says:

  24. Gigi says:

    I have kissed a few frogs and a few princes but luckily I have met my actual Prince Charming and have never been happier!

  48. pj says:

    I was teaching grade one when I got engaged. Of course they asked me who I was marrying. (Of course they figured it had to be someone else on staff :). When I told them his name was Mr. Clark, I heard someone at the back of the class whisper “you know Superman”. Needless to say he’s had a lot to live up to!

  49. Danielle says:

    Last new years i got drunk and kissed couple frogs.

  51. charityk says:

    i found my prince online, but before it was cool lol

  52. katydidit21 says:

    I have kissed a couple of frogs but have never had one worth keeping on my lily pad. Perhaps I should have been wearing Lipstick Queen’s Frog Prince lipstick?

  58. Barbara H says:

  59. mcmc says:

  61. Silvia D says:

    after kissing a few frog I met my husband, he is my prince. We were shocked to find many coincidences in our life before we actually met in our 30’s! one was about 5 years before we met I was visiting West Edmonton Mall on holidays..i took lots of pictures and years later a few weeks after we met i was showing him the album… 4 pictures in different areas had him and his brother in them!!! They were on holiday there also..

  72. Kelly H says:

    Can’t say I’ve kissed any frogs OR worn green lipstick. But there’s a first time for anything! ha

  73. There once was a frog who tried to a girl for quite some time but she was too afraid to destroy their friendship.. then one day that frog went to Afghanistan with the military and she realized she was much more afraid of losing him forever. While he was away it became clear that he was her prince.. fast forward 7 years .. frog came home, got married and had a baby girl. We’ve never been happier.

  74. Lisa S says:

    I met my forever person by poking him in the belly and doing the pilsbury doughboy laugh while he was play pool at a bar one night. my prince!
