To all the fans of Happy Skin lippies, our prayers have been answered! Presenting the new Happy Skin Moisturizing Matte Lippies! Here are the swatches and my review of the most talked about #PreviewxHappySkin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippies.


The country’s style bible, Preview, collaborates with Happy Skin as part of the magazine’s 20th anniversary this June. We all loved Happy Skin’s Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies, but ever since the launch nearly two years ago, fans have been clamoring for a matte finish too. And this is what Pauline Juan, editor-in-chief of Preview, had in mind for the #PreviewXHappySkin collab. Thus, the birth of Happy Skin Moisturizing Matte Lippies.

For the #PreviewXHappySkin collaboration, they came up with two shades – Too Cool and Hot Stuff.

I can already read your mind. Your next question, is it moisturizing?

A lot of ladies out there are afraid of matte lipsticks. I won’t deny. I’m one of them. I have extremely dry lips. Although matte lipsticks are edgy and fashionable, flaking chapped lips are definitely not sexy! Therefore, nailing the perfect formula was the top priority for both beauty and style authorities. They found the miracle ingredient, which is Cupuacu Butter. It has the capacity to attract 240% more water, allowing lipst to effectively hydrate and plump, making this the most moisturizing matte lippie you’ll ever try. Cupuacu Butter also offers natural sun protection for the lips as it has the ability to absorb damaging UVA/UVB rays.


When purchased as a set, the matte lippies come in a book-inspired, gold-stamped case that’s meant to be an ode to Preview’s print beginnings. You can use it as a container or a clutch. Cool, huh? 😉

#PreviewXHappySkin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Too Cool

Too Cool is a kind of nude that would look best on those with medium to dark skin tone. For those who have fair skin like I do, Too Cool would look perfect when paired with dramatic eyes – smoky eyes or thick eye liner. It has the tendency to look too pale on fair-skinned if you’re going for the natural look.


#PreviewXHappySkin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Hot Stuff

I love this red wine shade!!! Honestly, not all red lipsticks look good on me, but this shade is just spot on! It’s a more sophisticated and more toned down kind of red. Hot Stuff is perfect for all skin tones. You can even get away without any other makeup on. Simply swipe this red lippie and you’re ready to go!


Happy Skin Moisturizing Matte Lippies Verdict

If you’re like me who’s afraid to use matte lipsticks because of flaking and chapped lips, you have to try the #PreviewXHappySkin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie Collection. It has a nice formula that glides easily on the lips. Staying power is good, but must re-apply after drinking or eating. As for the pigmentation, you can get the same color on the tube in just one swipe! Most importantly, the good news is it is moisturizing despite the matte formula! I can’t wait for more matte lippies from Happy Skin!
