Happy Skin Summer Collection (and more!)

Happy Skin, being one of my beauty staples since late last year, has easily carved a good space in my boudoir. For makeup addicts like you and I, summer ain’t complete without a flash collection from our favourite brands. Happy Skin has the answer to that and nicely, so much more!

Happy Skin Turn Up The Heat Summer Collection 2014

Over canapes and mocktails, Happy Skin let us toy around their collection and spoiled us to the core. Here’s what I brought home with me (am I a good girl or what?!?). *cartwheels*

Can I just say — what a chic tote! The waterproof, tiffany gold and blue beauty kit is a gift for every purchase worth Php 3500 (Beauty Bar and Rustans only). It can be purchased on its own for only Php 499 at Plains & Prints. Grab it while you can as it’s limited edition just like the summer collection.

Shut Up & Kiss Me Turn Up The Heat Lippies
Summer Crush, Sunset Kiss, Morning After
box set of 3 lippies for Php 1249, Php 549 each

Summer Crush is a flirty pink that evokes lips that want to be kissed. Sunset Kiss is a fiery red orange that will remind you of the burning passion of a kiss and summer’s extraordinary setting sun. The Morning After is a sexy nude that mimics lips that were just kissed. The limited-edition summer lippies continue to offer three-fold “lip service”: the shine of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick, and hydration of a balm. It has Shea Butter and Collagen to keep your lips in lip-lockin’ shape.
Oh yummmm! Such stunning lip crayons! I find myself wearing The Morning After more and more in the office and Summer Crush + Sunset Kiss combined on Happy Fridays. Summer is all about bright and bold choices, right?

To complement our juicy kissers, our blush has to be equally gorg right? Happy Skin understands this beauty non-negotiable hence added 2 super hard to resist cheek hues:

“Our Get Cheeky With Me blushes deliver the same promise of a natural flush as our original blushes,” shares Jacqe. “It comes in two new limited edition shades,” excitedly says Rissa. “Sunset Kiss, the most flattering orange that allows you to take the summer warmth with you wherever you go; and The Morning After, the perfect shade of pink that will always make him think you always have that natural effortless glow.”

Oh nothing. Just blushing’ around with an oldie but goodie, First Kiss.

Apart from the summer collection, we also played with a couple of new products:

Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Auto Eyeliner
Chic Brown, Perfect Black, and Peppermint
Php 499
Aside from packing a pigmented punch, Happy Skin makes sure that the Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Auto Eyeliners are also healthy for the skin. “Our eyeliner levels up the playing field against all other liners out there, because we consciously made it to care for skin,” says Jacqe. Knowing that the eye area is extremely delicate, Happy Skin infuses its liners with Argan oil, a favorite ingredient known for its superior moisturizing properties. Argan oil has a skin-conditioning quality that allows for the healthy pigment to glide smoothly on the skin without drying out your lid and lash line.

The Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Auto Eyeliner in Peppermint easily became my BFF because it opens up my eyes like no other! Paired with Chic Brown (reminds me so much of MAC’s Bountiful Brown) on the upper lash line gives me a wide awake look that’s still safe even for the most conservative workplaces. Each pencil comes with a tip sharpener for makeup mavens who like their lines extra fine and precise.

Chic Brown, Perfect Black, and Peppermint

Eye Love View Pencil & Marker Eyebrow Duo
Php 799
Fall in love with Happy Skin Eye Love View Pencil & Marker Eyebrow Duo as it makes you feel pretty, professional, and poised. This double-ended wonder will frame your face with ace-shaped brows. It provides the best of both worlds: an eyebrow pencil tip and a liquid marker tip. This eyebrow duo is formulated with Argan Oil to keep your brow strands nourished. Plus, Vitamin E helps treat damaged hair strands so they always look healthy, youthful, and well-groomed.

I’ve yet to try this on my brows esp. now that I have dark blonde hair. I think it’s going to be a perfect match! According to Maggie Wilson, this is one of her must-haves because it does stay in place until you decide to remove it. How apt is that for our summer getaways (hello humidity and cliff jumps!)?

Make A Clean Sweep Revitalizing Micellar Makeup Cleanser
Php 599
Wipe away the remnants of bad vibes, heavy makeup, and a long day, and let your skin breathe. Happy Skin Make A Clean Sweep Revitalizing Micellar Makeup Cleanser makeup remover is a gentle yet potent water-based makeup cleanser. Micellar water, boasting the highest makeup removing powers, leaves skin fresh and clean without having to rinse! Why You Should Love Micellar Water: Originating from France, it is a non-rinse, soap-free cleansing water that contains micelle molecules. Micelle molecules are brilliant in trappping makeup & dirt! They have the highest makeup removing powers. Being ultra-light, all-natural and gragrance-free, it leaves skin feeling soft, supple, and fresh.
If you’re getting the Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Auto Eyeliner, do grab the Make A Clean Sweep Revitalizing Micellar Makeup Cleanser as well. It’s so gentle yet removes every single trace of makeup even the ones that refuse to be taken out by soap and water. It doesn’t leave a thick and film-like residue so it’s great for in between makeup changes as well making it a MUA must-have.

Feeling Sculptacular Face Contour Kit
Php 1199
Look ten pounds lighter with Happy Skin Feeling Sculptacular Contouring Kit! Featuring an easy-to-blend contour and highlighting powder, this sculpts the face, chisels the nose, and defines the cheeks achieving modelesque perfection. No surgery needed. This special non-silicone contour kit contains Green Tea Extract that is rich in caffeine, a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory which helps increase circulation and reduce puffiness. The beauty miracle ingredient Neem Leaf also makes this contour kit suitable for people with sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin. It possesses anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that helps clear out & prevent blackheads, whiteheads, and breakouts. It also hydrates while controlling excess shine.
The last product in this massive post is my favourite — the Feeling Sculptacular Face Contour Kit. I was so excited to try it out so I purchased it the same day I saw it on Happy Skin’s Instagram. I was thinking that if their pressed foundation’s that great, this should be another superstar for the books.

Whether you’re a contouring pro or an amateur, I highly suggest trying this out. The powder’s SO fine, perfectly pigmented, and rather flexible in colour making it a good MUA tool as well. I also use both powders for the eye area in a pinch as it’s perfect for contouring the sockets when I’m going for a prime look or building a clean look for black and white photography.
