When it comes to lip products, there isn’t a local brand that comes to mind when I think of quality. That has changed recently when I tried the Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies from Happy Skin Cosmetics. Happy Skin Cosmetics is a local brand that has recently launched in the Philippines. Happy Skin is a brand of “skin-loving makeup” founded by Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo. These two women specifically designed this makeup line for women who want to look beautiful yet natural at the same time.
Initially, this brand attracted me because of its cute packaging and adorable counter. Based on the packaging alone, I thought that it was an imported and expensive brand. But, I am really happy that this brand is not only affordable, it is also one of the best in terms of quality that the local market has to offer! Oh and I love the cool and catchy names of their products!
I now have 5 of their Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies and I love them all! But, for this blog post, I will be reviewing the shades Crushing On You and Girls Night Out, which are the first 2 colors I’ve ever bought from this brand. I’ll save the other 3 shades that I have for another review since they are limited edition. 🙂
The lipsticks are in crayon form and are packaged really nicely.
The color on top is called Girls Night Out while the one in the bottom is called Crushing on You.
Crushing on You is a nude pink color. I can describe it as a “My Lips But Better” color because it just looks like the natural color of your lips with an added oomph! I’m not sure if that made sense but I’m sticking to my description of this beautiful color! Ever since buying this color, it has been my go-to lip product and it has found a home in my makeup bag! Haha.
Girls Night Out is a dark purple/plum color. This color reminds me of Rebel by MAC. It such a lovely dark color that is still very wearable during the day.
In terms of the quality of these lipsticks, I can very much compare them to MAC lipsticks. The formula is very moisturizing because it contains Shea Butter and Collagen which keeps the lips hydrated. I also love the fact that the formula is rich and thick yet it is very easy to apply as it just glides smoothly on the lips! More importantly, I love the fact that it is long wearing as well! I find that it stays opaque for atleast 4 hours (depending on what you eat or drink). But even if the color wears out throughout the day, it still leaves a nice stain.
1. The formula is moisturizing and long-wearing!
2. The packaging is super dooper cute that you just can’t resist!
3. At Php 499 each, I’d say these lippies are a good buy for the quality that you’re getting!
4. This is a local Filipino brand which I think has world class quality!
Naaa. I seriously can’t think of any! I only have nothing but LOVE for this product and this brand!
I can’t wait to try the other products from this brand because I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about them!
Happy Skin is available at Beauty Bar, Rustan’s and Plains and Prints store.
Just go and check out this brand! Enough said!
