This weekend, the news that local brand, Happy Skin Cosmetics, will be producing their own lip kits — a pair of lip liner and liquid lipstick — rocked my world in a new collection called Festival of Colors which also features a blotting paper, some eye liners and concealers. I’m planning to get two out of the three shades bringing me to today’s post because one of the shades they’ve included is Honeymoon Glow which I have.
HAPPY MOISTURIZED LIPS
Say goodbye to parched and dry matte lips! Happy Skin’s Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie is impressively hydrating while providing an ultra-matte finish. It moisturizes so superbly that it doesn’t magnify dry skin on dehydrated lips. Expect it to glide on with high impact and intense color. Its long-wearing formula wonderfully stays in place, too! Finally, kissable lips no MATTEr what!
Honeymoon Glow is described as a warm peachy pink. However, it becomes a peachy brown against my lips instead. And that’s totally ok. It actually sits perfectly with me because I like lipstick shades with more brown tones these days anyway. Their lipsticks by the way are the jumbo crayon-type with no discernible scent or taste.
I don’t own a lot of their Moisturizing Matte Lippies but I can say that this has a non-drying formula. It doesn’t really have a matte finish in my opinion but a semi-matte one instead. It feels light and comfortable enough to wear the whole time and doesn’t make my lips flaky at all. It also doesn’t tug on the lips with application and feels creamy enough to glide with ease. The pigmentation is less than opaque but can be built up with a second layer. The only downside is because it’s not wholly matte, it lasts for 5 hours or so before fading. Greasy meals therefore can make them disappear faster.
Moisturizing Matte Lippies retail for Php 649 from Happy Skin online. They’re also available at selected major department stores like the Beauty Section of the SM Department Store, Landmark and Rustan’s. You can also find them in Beauty Bar and Plains & Print stores.
