This Lipstick Is Like A Mood Ring For Your Face
Now there’s no hiding from your crush…
Pokémon, Furbies, mood rings – the golden trio of 90s nostalgia. But what if we told you that mood rings have hurtled into the future, and are now available for your face?
Well, that’s where these magic lippies, like Lipstick Queen Frog Prince, come in!
Typically starting a sultry black, green or blue, the shades completely change when they come into contact with moisture. Seeing as your lips are pretty moist most of the time, they reveal their true form when you apply!
Remember litmus paper from GCSE chemistry? Well, shades like MOODmatcher’s MOODgloss and Barry M’s Genie Color Change Lip Paint are basically like a beauty version of that, but how does it work exactly?
The Beauty Brainski explains: “[It’s] a red dye which is colorless when dissolved in a waterless base.”
“When it comes in contact with moisture, the change in solubility and pH causes the dye to turn bright-pink. The product appears to change with your personal chemistry because the colour changes when it comes in contact with moisture, [which] can come from your skin or even just the humidity in the air.”
Okay, so we might have gotten a little carried away when we said they were facial mood rings, but come on, would you rather think it was all down to a change in chemicals, or your feelings?
But then again, why can’t it be both?
