Ever since Happy Skin launched its makeup line two years ago, the Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippies have been the cult favorite. Well, who wouldn’t love their intense color and intense moisture? Day in and day out, Happy Skin sells over a hundred lippies. This made the brand devote its Holiday 2015 collection to Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippie.


Happy Skin Holiday 2015 Collection consists of a four-set hardbound book collection, with each set featuring a best-selling lip kit. The books can help equip you on How to Take the Perfect #Selfie, How to Make Beauty Effortless, How to Make a Statement, and How to Conquer the World.

“These books celebrate the different lifestyles of women today,” explains co-founder Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez. “You have the everyday gal who’s always on the lookout for the perfect #selfie, the effortless beauty who prefers a simple ‘no-makeup’ makeup look, the fashionista who’s set to make a statement with everything she does, and the power woman who wants to leave her mark on the world.”

Happy Skin Read My Lips Holiday 2015 Collection

I had a chance to try out the new collection through the four lippie stations at the opening of Happy Skin’s first boutique in Glorietta 3.


Happy Skin Holiday 2015: How to Take the Perfect #Selfie

First stop: How to Take the Perfect #Selfie Moisturizing Lippie Set (PHP 1,499), which contains three wearable Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies. With all the Christmas parties you will be attending soon, you will need to be “armed” with the right lip color. #StrikeAPose with a pretty berry hue that instantly brightens up the face and lifts the mood, #PuckerUp with an flattering light mauve that will be your next makeup kit mainstay, and #StayHappy with a gorgeous earthy peach shade that makes the lips look ultra-fresh. And of course, your lips should be picture-perfect – meaning no to chapped lips! Don’t worry, the moisturizing Shea butter and protecting collagen on each lippies would take care of that.


Here I am with Jackie, Soph, and Nikki ready for the perfect selfie!


Happy Skin Holiday 2015: How to Conquer the World

How to Conquer the World Moisturizing Lip Lacquer Set (PHP 1,199) includes two of Happy Skin’s most innovative lippie yet—the shiny-yet-weightless Shut Up & Kiss Me Power Pout Moisturizing Lip Lacquer (Hear Me Roar in red orange and Royal Treatment in nude lilac). These lippies feel non-sticky on the lips, unlike other lacquers, because they have wax-free gel technology. They also have intensely pigmented, high-shine formula.


Happy Skin Holiday 2015: How to Make a Statement

Expanding the hit Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie range is the How to Make a Statement Moisturizing Matte Lippie Set (PHP 1,099), which comes with two new, soon-to-be cult-fave shades. “Lips and eyes never fail to take center stage during the holidays. It Girl is the perfect nude pink that will take you from workweek to weekend, and goes well with a smokey-eye look,” recommends co-founder Rissa Mananquil-Trillo. “The holidays are also the time of year when women who don’t normally wear bold lip colors to start doing so—the cherry red Heartbreaker makes everyday feel like a special occasion!”


Happy Skin Holiday 2015: How to Make Beauty Effortless

For the woman who likes to keep her makeup to a minimum (that’s me!), there’s the How to Make Beauty Effortless Lip & Cheek Mousse Set (PHP 1,199), which has two suits-all-skin-tones Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse shades – Fall In Love with a peachy glow and Laugh Always with a universally-flattering earthy-nude. This double-duty product rejuvenates and protects since it has anti-aging peptides and SPF 15.


I think most of you would agree how pretty those gift sets are! Those hardbound books can be used as makeup cases or as a decor in the bedroom or on top of the vanity table.

And to welcome Happy Skin’s 2nd anniversary, they opened their first-ever boutique in Glorietta 3. The brand partnered with Heim Interiors, led by interior designer Rossy Yabut-Rojales, the same design firm that brought the much-talked-about #HappySkinHQ to life. Heim conveyed Happy Skin’s fun and feminine feel in the interiors, and West Elm spruced up the space with sophisticated home accessories.


Happy Skin makes it easy to #ShopHappiness in the new boutique, with the skin-caring products seamlessly divided into different zones: “What’s New” for the latest beauty goodies, “Hall of Fame” for best-sellers and beauty award winners, “Limited Edition” for limited releases, “Take Me Home” for treats and freebies, and the “Eyes”, “Lips”, and “Face” sections for area-specific needs.



Hall of Fame



There’s also the Lips-spection, a personalized lip service which starts with a lip scrub by the beauty advisor, followed by healing, moisturizing balm, and a quick fun quiz to determine her personality and lifestyle. Lastly, which is Lips-spection’s goal, client finds the best lippie formula and shade that suits her lifestyle.
