Celebrate The Princess In You With The Happy Skin x Disney Holiday Collection

After numerous teasers, we're sold -- all we want for Christmas is everything from the limited edition Happy Skin x Disney Collection!

Happy Skin threw a super sweet, princess themed launch last Tuesday and I've been on a Disney high since then! I'm doubly elated to see my favourite princess (Ariel) tag-teaming with my barkada nickname (Cinderella, naturally because I need to go home at midnight LOL). :)

Thank you Martha for being my swatch model! <3

Apart from the lipsticks that we've seen all over the net last week, Happy Skin also introduced three new products: the Happy Skin x Disney Princess Enchanted Luminous Mesh Blush (in 2 shades: pink and peach) and Tale As Old As Time Brightening Powder Foundation (available in Soft Beige or Natural Beige), and Let It Glow Brightening Powder Foundation (also in Soft Beige or Natural Beige).

Tale As Old As Time Brightening Powder Foundation - Soft Beige

If you're on the lookout for a powder foundation that controls oil and diffuses imperfections for the perfect selfie, you have to try their Brightening Powder Foundation (above in Soft Beige). Similar to the Don't Get Mad, Get Even Hydrating Powder Foundation, it's also very light and fine in texture, has moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid, brightening Yoghurt Extract, and skin-protecting SPF 20 PA++. 

This is me with my favourite princess (Sophia The First heehee) wearing Tale As Old As Time Brightening Powder Foundation in Soft Beige, Happy Skin x Disney Princess Enchanted Luminous Mesh Blush in Peach (for that oh-so subtle cheek hue) and Happy Skin X Disney Princess Liquid Matte Lipstick in Cinderella:

Until last week's event, I didn't know that there's more to this collection. Happy Skin has done multiple (and exciting) collabs in the past but nothing quite like this. To inspire and empower more Filipinas, they've collaborated with local personalities who have succeeded in chased their dreams. Each personality has a charity of their choice and every lipstick purchase enables Happy Skin to make a donation towards the cause.

  • Actress, artist, and beauty icon Heart Evangelista-Escudero has genuine kindness that remains even after years in show business. Heart chose to donate to Thalassemia patients who suffer from inherited blood disorders. “I’ve been part of this charity for 12 years now, and some of the kids there are very close to my heart,” Heart says. “I’ve seen their journey and love them dearly.” 
  • Singer, host, and actress Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuzon uses her powerful voice to inspire and create a spark. To encourage determination among the youth, Karylle is working with the Department of Education in Laguna “to help young public school students,” Karylle says. “My family is from Laguna and we wanted to do something to help the local community.” 
  • Actress and advocate Carla Abellana is brave enough to fight for those she loves. Carla is giving back to the Philippine Animal Welfare Society, “because I was raised to respect and care for animals,” she says. “I believe that we have a responsibility to care for animals and that they, too, have rights. I will lend my voice to them for a lifetime.” 
  • With her star on the rise, the value of hard work has been embedded in actress, singer, and songwriter Ylona Garcia’s heart even at her age. Ylona chose to donate to the Visayan Forum Foundation, an NGO that addresses modern-day slavery. “It's scary to think that this can happen to anyone, even to kids younger than me, but it's also good to know that there are people out there willing to help them recover and be better people,” says Ylona. “And it's nice to be one of those who can help them change their lives, even in my own simple way.” 
  • When blogger Tricia Gosingtian started out blogging with the pen name slumberdoll, she had no idea that her platform would reach the heights that it has today. She is the ideal embodiment of a graceful dreamer. Tricia chose to work with Kythe, “particularly because of their Child Life Program,” she explains. “They provide psycho-social support that alleviates the anxiety—which I also suffer from—of pediatric patients who suffer from illnesses such as cancer, heart conditions, kidney disease, and blood disorders.”
  • Top bloggers and iconic sisters Vern and Verniece Enciso are perfect examples of how sisterly love always prevails. Vern and Verniece are giving back to Elsie Gaches, a home for children with special needs. “This charity has always been close to our family, particularly to our Lola, because she adopted a girl named Grace from the village. Grace became part of our family,” shares Vern. “We want people to know about Elsie Gaches, because we feel that not much help is given to these kids.” 
  • Janina Vela is recognized as a YouTube vlogger who channels her creativity into producing and editing relatable, highly watched videos. She represents everything bubbly, curious, and imaginative to a T. Janina chose to donate to the Real Life Foundation. “My desire is to encourage the youth to dream, to not give up on their aspirations,” says Janina. “But a lot of them don’t have the tools they need to take a step toward their goal. That’s why I support Real Life Foundation, because it provides scholarships to the less fortunate.” 
To complete your Happy Skin x Disney look of the day, checkout the pieces  Heyjow came up with. Each piece has a pendant that "symbolizes an admirable trait, which is hopefully brought out from the wearer".

  • A symbol for love and passion, a blooming rose also expresses innocence, admiration, friendship, joy, and enchantment.
  • Uncover your hidden royalty and nobility with a purple amethyst. A healing stone, the amethyst also enhances creativity and strengthens the imagination.
  • The heart represents the center of emotion. A full heart expresses affection, love, and compassion, and unveils kindness to all.
  • The gentle pink color of a rose quartz evokes feminine energy. This stone awakens unconditional love and also heals the wounds of the heart, dissolving sorrows, worries, and fears.
  • An aquamarine bezel-set gemstone speaks of quiet elegance and refinement. The mesmerizing blue color also inspires courage to be peaceful and kind.
  • Playful mermaid tail and starfish charms evoke fun and exploration, telling of life waiting to be discovered under the sea.
  • A charming symbol of winter and of the holidays, the snowflake's delicate feathery quality evokes purity.
  • A white druzy stone is believed to help in melting away blocked energy, allowing the wearer to find her own inner light.
