Taking a break from all the ~~*feelsy*~~ posts with this quick beauty review about Happy Skin’s Shut Up And Kiss Me Moisturizing Lipsticks (Php 499 each for the permanent lipstick range/Php 549 for the limited edition collections)! As much as I want to enumerate the reasons why I love Happy Skin’s lipsticks, I think the mere fact that I’ve bought three lipsticks from the brand in a span of four months says a lot about how much I love them. Anyway, here are my picks from Happy Skin’s lipstick range:
Being a fan of MLBB/nude lipsticks, I obviously picked out the most natural-looking lipsticks from their line, which are Honeymoon Glow, Crushing on You, and The Morning After. All of these shades are great for everyday use. In fact, these lipsticks are already staples in my makeup bag. Moving on, here are some thoughts regarding the shades I’ve picked:
- Crushing on You – I see Crushing on You as my true MLBB; when I put it on, it closely matches my natural lip color. In contrast to Honeymoon Glow and The Morning After, I have to put two to three swipes of this lipstick in order for the color to fully appear. But despite this little issue, I see Crushing On You as the most wearable color.
- Honeymoon Glow- Honeymoon Glow can sometimes look too red on me, that’s why I only put one to two swipes of it. Whenever I tell my best friend that Honeymoon Glow is a nude/MLBB lipstick, she would sometimes do a double take because it sometimes come off as a little too red for everyday wear. However, I recently discovered that if you mix Crushing on You with Honeymoon Glow, it becomes more muted. If you ask me about wear time, it lasts one me for about 4-5 hours.
- The Morning After- The Morning After was my go-to lipstick for two months, until I bought Honeymoon Glow. In fact, this was the first lipstick I bought from Happy Skin! I love how it brightens up my face. I just wish that they included The Morning After in their permanent range though, considering that it was the go-to MLBB lipstick for many women out there.
Given these mini-reviews, I am still a fan of Happy Skin’s lipsticks. My experience with the brand has been generally pleasant, and I see myself purchasing more products from them in the future! In fact, I am actually saving up for their Forbidden Fruit Lippie Collection, which I’ll probably be splitting up with Jow and Chandra during the Christmas season. Anyway, I would like to think that my level of self-control towards purchasing lipstick is still pretty high, but who could say no to nice, flattering, high-quality lipsticks? Hehe.
