When a leading fashion magazine collaborates with a make up brand who knows their "lippies" well, you can expect nothing but perfection!
That's what Preview Magazine did to celebrate their 20th anniversary! By collaborating with our favorite local makeup brand Happy Skin by coming up with a limited edition Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie Collection.
Seriously, how can matte be moisturizing? Well, you have to give both lippies a try to find out! With Preview magazine as the Philippines' authority in Fashion and Beauty, I have nothing but SUPER HIGH expectations on my head when the kit fell on my lap!
Here's a question for you: "If you are to pick only 2 shades of lippies for the rest of your life, what would it be?"
Same as you, I am panicking just thinking about this question! My brain will probably shut down for a good century!
A matte nude and a red lippies!
Preview x Happy Skin calls them Too Cool and Hot Stuff“You either play up the lip, or you tone down the lip to play up the eyes,” says Preview editor-in-chief Pauline Suaco-Juan.
Too Cool - is a cool toned nude lip color.
Hot Stuff - deep dark maroon-red color.
AMW Wore Too CoolI personally think Too Cool would look BEST on users who have medium to dark skintone! If you are fair-skinned like I am, you may need to play up with your eye makeup or on days you are too lazy to apply eyeshadow, thicken your brow shape and apply a thick liner to create that "I'm waring nude lippie yet I don't look sick" look!
But of course, this lippie would look best if you are rocking a smokey eye make up!
AMW Wore Hot StuffI personally think Hot Stuff would look great on almost EVERYBODY! Whether you have warm or cool skin tone, the shade is very flattering and you can even get away wearing only this lippie without any other trace on make up on the rest of your face! A definite pick-me-upper and emergency lippie shade if you want to look good in an instant!
As always, Happy Skin did not fail in creating highly moisturizing lippies even if they are matte! I believe the include cupucacu butter from Amazon which explains why these lippies glides on my lips like a dream!
How's pigmentation? Well, you get that gorgeous straight-on-the-tube color in just 1 swipe! And the staying power is good because I can get away without reapplication for a good 4-5 hours.
The limited edition Preview x Happy Skin lippies are priced at Php599.00 each, or Php 1,099 for a set of two. Feel free to purchase them at Rustan’s Makati and Shangri-La Plaza; Beauty Bar; Plains & Prints; The SM Store Makati, Mall of Asia, and North Edsa; Watsons Mall of Asia; Landmark Makati, or online.
