Happy Skin Lippies yet again!
I've had Happy Skin's Shut and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies before and I have kind of forgotten how moisturizing and long lasting their formula was... It's nice to know that the brand has grown and there are lots of other shades being offered. I bought 3 recently and I'm loving each of them:
|from L-R: Honeymoon Glow, 24 Carats, Naughty and Nice|
Honeymoon Glow is a perfect brick nude for me---with the right balance of pink that does not make me look washed out, is not too pale, and just simply looks natural. On other skin tones it may come across as mauve, but for me it's such a great everyday color and perfect for when I want my eyes to stand out as well.
24 Carats is part of the StyLIZed collection by style maven Liz Uy. It's actually bright pink-red, a bold lip color that looks great and not to cool on me.
Naughty and Nice is part of their holiday collection I believe, and is a plummy-berry color that looks fall-appropriate but I wear it now and it looks sophisticated. Not too bright but it still stands out.
All lip colors are quite semi-matte, non-drying and long lasting--- even with meals and drinks. Won't last for an entire kissing session though, but touch ups are quite minimal throughout the day, with deeper colors leaving a nice stain behind. Price is still the same, around 499 pesos for colors part of the basic lineup and 599 each for limited edition ones--- still great for hoarding! I love Happy Skin and it's great to know that a local brand is competing very well with other beauty brands out there.
