Complexion-Matching Lipsticks

The Frog Prince Lipstick Changes to Suit Different Complexions

— March 30, 2016 — Fashion
The Frog Prince lipstick by the Australian beauty brand Lipstick Queen is a shape-shifting product designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of consumers. When shopping for lipstick, one of the biggest problems women face is finding a shade that complements their skin tone. This product takes the guesswork out of the equation by automatically adjusting to the wearer's complexion.

The Frog Prince lipstick comes in an unusual green shade that looks more like a science experiment than a beauty product. However, once applied, the green stain transforms into a pink hue that perfectly matches the wearer's complexion. The lipstick is able to change color due to an ingredient called chameleon, which is sensitive to pH, light and moisture. This means that the lipstick with react to each individual's body chemistry in a different way, thereby creating a custom lip stain.
Trend Themes
1. Complexion-matching Products - Beauty brands are developing products that personalize to the consumer's individual complexion, leading to opportunities for customized beauty solutions.
2. Ph-sensitive Cosmetics - The use of chameleon pigments in cosmetics that respond to pH, light and moisture is creating opportunities for innovative products that adapt to the consumer's environment and body chemistry.
3. Science-based Beauty - With the increase in popularity of functional beauty, beauty brands are leveraging science and technology to develop products that solve specific and individualized beauty needs.
Industry Implications
1. Cosmetics - Beauty brands can incorporate pH-sensitive technology into lipsticks, foundations and other cosmetics to provide a personalized consumer experience.
2. Skincare - Skincare companies can develop complexion-matching products, such as moisturizers and creams, that adjust to the individual's skin tone for a more personalized skincare routine.
3. Technology - The development of chameleon pigments and other similar technologies that can adapt to different environments and body chemistry can be utilized in various industries outside of the beauty industry, such as healthcare and food.
