Happy Skin is the Philippine's favorite homegrown brand of makeup that cares for your skin.
Since its launch in 2013, Happy Skin has reached a cult-favorite status among women everywhere by providing them with makeup that's skin-friendly and easy-to-use. In its first year alone, Happy Skin's key products bagged beauty awards in the Philippines' top fashion and beauty glossies. Early this year, it was also recognized by a best-selling magazine for "changing the face of the local beauty industry" and "producing a cosmetic brand that's globally competitive."
All of Happy Skin's products are infused with top-notch skincare ingredients from beauty capitals all over the world, precisely to provide what the brand promises—to make the skin happy.
The first time I fell in-love with Happy Skin lipsticks was when I purchased their "StyLIZed" lipstick collection last year. It consisted of 3 must-have shades that each woman must-have in their staple! To check my review about them, please click HERE.
StyLIZed Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie Collection (Php1,499/set)
For those days when I can't decide which colors to bring, I just pick this set up and I'm good to go! You see they have the 3 must-have colors that everyone should have and you can also mix them up if you like! :-)
Style Icon- is the perfect nude lipstick that has the right amount of pinkish tone to it that can brighten up your face without making it look "too bare", I also love how it's so easy to pull off alone and how it can be matched with any makeup looks!
24 Carats- a blue-based bright pink that looks so fun to wear especially for those days when you just wanna look pretty, blooming, and more outgoing than you usually are! Just swipe this on and your bare-faced will instantly look fresher! :-)
Red Carpet- is a slightly warm-toned red that is perfect for Asian skin tones! Wearing this alone can instantly give you a more polished look, but pair this with a well-blended eye shadow and you'll look bolder and fierce! You can even tone this down if you like, just dab them on your lips lightly!
This is a limited edition set so, I recommend getting your hands on them if you still see a set being sold!
EXT: BEAUTY IN BLOOM LIPPIE DUO COLLECTION (Php999/set)
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me
Beauty in Bloom Lippie Duo (Limited Edition)
I swear! These two right here are my most favorite MLBB lipstick shades of all time yet! The other is a shade brighter and the other is a shade darker. Perfect in emphasizing my lips without going overboard! How I wish they become permanent in their line of lippies though. Everytime I wear either of the two, I don't feel like I have to put on other makeup anymore! It's just too perfect for me!
Bride to Be - subdued medium pink with warm undertone that's one shade lighter than my lips
Hold My Hand - mauve pink that has a hint of brown tones, it's one shade darker then my lips!

Shut Up & Kiss Me (Limited Edition)
These 2 lipsticks right here have a moisturizing matte finish. So far they are the most bold shades of lipsticks that I currently have under Happy Skin. You see, I don't wear much intensely nude and dark lipstick shades but I am so curious about this set that I got to have them! And yes, I was surprised that they looked good on me! Wow!
Too Cool is the perfect neutral nude shade (not pinkish, not yellowish) for every skintone, it is perfect to be partnered with a heavy smoky eyeshadow to balance its "nudeness" though no worries because it doesn't make me look "anemic" or too pale anyway.
Hot Stuff is a deep dark red/maroon shade that surprisingly brightens my complexion! It made my teeth look whiter as well! This is a good dupe for MAC Sin and is kinda close to the shade of MAC Diva but this is darker. I only need an eyebrow makeup and eyeliner to make this lip color work on me! It makes me look fierce as well which I love!
Done with the lipstick sets, I'll be reviewing next the individual shades that they offer. I'll start with my personal favorites:
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies
Just Say Yes - light peachy pink with a warmer undertone
Just Married- light pink with a cool undertone (dupe for MAC Pink Nouveau, hey!)
Valentine Kiss- medium light pink with cool undertone, deeper than Just Married that has a hint of lilac on my lips.
My favorite MLBB (My Lips But Better) shades from Happy Skin are:
Swept Off My Feet
- a muted medium pink with a hint of brown tones, it is my perfect MLBB shade! It doesn't look like I am wearing lipstick BUT it enhances my lips and complexion at the same time! This is the go-to shade if you don't know what lip color to wear! This is a lip & cheek mousse by the way and I'm a NC20 in MAC for your reference.
Under the Sheets
- a warm brown shade that makes me look so polished and sophisticated everytime I wear it. It's perfect to pair with brown/black smoky eyes for that ultra-posh look! :-)
- a beautiful warm brown shade with a hint of pink. It makes me look polished as well but its pinkish tone makes it look sweeter and "younger" than Under The Sheets. Those with morena complexions can find this as their perfect nude-pink shade! :-)
All of these lippies have a creamy satin formula with the benefit of lipgloss, lipstick, and lip balm all at the same time!
Above are the lipstick swatch that I have of all the Happy SKin lipsticks that I won so far. How about you, what are their lipstick shades that you prefer? Share with me your favorites! :)
