AMW Reviews: Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie

Another brand of makeup you say?  Don't you think the world has enough makeup for you to go crazy for?

Speaking from the bottom of my heart: "NEVER!" :P

As a makeup enthusiast, makeup lover and a makeup artist, there will NEVER be enough makeup in our lives and we always welcome new brands with open arms!  Especially a brand that promises not only good, quality makeup, but makeup that cares for your skin!

Recently, a local brand called Happy Skin took "Instagram" by storm (@happyskin_ph)!  I felt bad for not being able to attend the launch but I definitely cheered Jacqe Yuegtian-Gutierrez, Rissa Mananquil-Trillo and the rest of Happy Skin team for taking cosmetics up to the next level!  Makeup, aside from going top notch in terms of quality is also looking aesthetically great!  

I got their cute lip product called Shut Up & Kiss Me early last week and I've been using both lippie for a couple of days!  Though a bit early, I'm really excited to share my review on this!

P.S. Each time I pick up this lippie, the song "You talk too much, I need your touch, come on...Shut Up & Kiss Me" kept playing on top of my head! (Come on 80's peeps, you  know that song right?)


Shades on Spotlight ---
Just Married



My First Time

Happy Skin says ---
Whether torrid or tame, your lips will say it all! This Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie is sure to help you make that smackin' statement. This lip-loving moisture stick is loaded with Shea Butter and Collagen to get fans to line up for a taste of those supple, hydrated, and ultra-kissable lips. High-pigmented, and moisture-packed, this lippie glides on irresistibly smooth (without the stickiness!) and leaves behind a rich, creamy pout that's way tempting to kiss. 

Available shades:

















AMW says ---
Pros
  • Super cute packaging.  Catchy shade names I can easily remember!
  • Twist type packaging so no sharpening needed.
  • Pigmentation is really good.
  • Applies on smoothly on lips.  
  • No chapping or feathering.
  • Hydration is good, does not magnify the lines around my dry lips.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • A lip liner and lipstick in one!
  • Price.
Cons
  • Not widely available for now, we have to wait for them to be available in more Plains & Prints branches nationwide.
Neutral
  • Unscented.
Overall
True to what the product says, it is indeed moisturizing.  Kept my lips hydrated all through the day with minimal touch up.  Highly pigmented and one swipe goes a long way!

Tips
from Happy Skin 
  • Twist the body of the lippie to release the product. 
  • Line the borders of your lips to define your lip shape.
  • Fill in the lips with color to create a creamy, rich pout. 
from AMW
  • If you have dry lips, apply a generous amount of your favorite lip balm/lip treatment prior to lipstick application, wipe off balm before application to keep lipstick stay longer.
  • Use the tip of the Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in outlining your lips (or to define the shape of your lips), use the flat surface to fill in the rest of your lips to keep the lippie from staying in shape.
  • Once signs of irritations occur, stop using the product immediately.
  • My First Time (red) would work well on all red lippie lovers!
  • Just Married (pink) would look great on medium to dark skin tone.  Fair skinned individuals can use this as a match with a dark eye makeup! 
  • Need to look "awake" even without much make up on?  I highly recommend My First Time!  This looks good even when worn alone! 
Will I repurchase?
Definitely!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Everyone!

Shade: Just Married


Just Married is a soft, pale pink shade that is matte yet gives good enough "moisture" when applied on lips.

Before and After:
Just Married

Keep in mind that my lips are EXTREMELY dry and this was applied without lip balm underneath so to speak, this product is quite impressive in terms of not flaking on me (as most pale pink lipsticks would)


Shade: My First Time


My First Time, the shade, has been called the dupe of MAC Rebel so many times!  In terms of its purplish red shade, it does have a similarity with MAC Rebel, but the Happy Skin's version is more wearable on a daily basis!


Before and After
 

 On photo, the color looks much like Ruby Woo from MAC but in person, it has a purplish tint that wasn't caught on camera!

Have you seen Happy Skin Cosmetics at Plains and Prints stores?

  2. Looks like a good product, but I think the price is a bit too high for a local product. The lippies look similar to Revlon Balm Stain (which in US are much cheaper).

    1. I think the price is okay considering the quality, I am surprised how it doesn't flake or bleed on my lips and I read the product was sourced mostly from Japan, plus the quality is really good. I know what you mean about Revlon Balm Stain, they are also good, so it boils down to preference :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
