Over the decades, color changing rings, makeup, fingernail polish, etc have gone in and out of style. The earliest example came from a brand called Tangee back in the 1920's that made a color changing lipstick, which came back in style again in the '70s. In the '90s, we had mood changing rings and fingernail polish among other items. Now in 2017, color changing is back in style with pH changing lipsticks.
There are several different brands with pH changing lipsticks now. Each one claims to change to a personalized color based on the chemistry of your lips. How do they actually work? Are they worth it?
First, the lipstick work not by reacting with the pH of your lips but actually with the moisture of your lips. This reaction is caused by Red dye 27, which is an FDA approved dye safe for drugs and cosmetics that is colorless unless exposed to moisture. So once you put the lipstick on your lips, the color will change to a red or pink hue depending on how the lipstick is made. Don't worry, just because the lipstick reacts with the moisture on your lips doesn't mean that it sucks the moisture out of them! Also, don't expect the lipstick to look the same on everyone. The final tint of the color that ends up on your lips is dependent on what color your lips started with.
So does that mean they aren't worth it? No! The lipsticks still work very well and change to a delightful shade of red or pink depending on your lips. Some of them also last an extraordinary long time and don't dry out your lips. Just don't be fooled by the claim that the lipsticks change with the pH of your lips (they don't!) and enjoy them for the fun, trendy product they are and the look they give you!

I just got mine tonight... I am truly amazed! Was worried my application was messy, but when I peeled it off it looked spot on! I put some Vaseline over the top for shine purposes, but you could definitely wear without anything. So impressed! Thanks for this amazing product!
I have been super excited to try this! The color is Rose Pink. I exfoliated my lips first, then applied thick and even layer with a brush, waited for a little bit, peeled it off and I love the end result! 👄💄💋
One of the best products I have ever purchased! A must have👍
