Pucker Up With These Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me August Surprises!

CONFESSION: There are days when I feel like I have too many lipsticks to last me one lifetime. There are some when I (strongly) think “I need another nude/berry/coral!”. Last week, Happy Skin reminded me of the later with their latest collection out on the shelves this August.

Hello super fresh Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me lippies!
Goodbye, birthday budget!

Best Date Ever – a pop of berry pink
Pop the Question – a tinge of nude pink on your lips
Follow Your Heart – a classic bright pink lippie

If you loved the super fasyon collab of Happy Skin and Preview last June, the latest Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippies (Php 649) will seize your day! These shades in my opinion are far more wearable esp. for someone new to makeup. In true Happy Skin tradition, the names of these lippies are still inspired by the happiest occasions in a woman’s life.

Hear Me Roar – a striking red orange
Strong and Sexy – a timeless terra-cotta nude
Royal Treatment – a nude with a lilac undertone

Sneakily, Happy Skin once again tickled our fancies with the latest addition to their best-selling lippies with the new Shut Up & Kiss Me Power Pout Moisturizing Lip Lacquers (Php 699). I’ve tried plenty of glosses in the past and nothing comes close to this lippies’ texture. It’s like a crossover between the mousse and gloss plus more. It’s super pigmented (you can see it in action below), absolutely shiny, weightless, and guaranteed to be non-sticky (thanks to the new wax-free gel technology). Moisture’s not to be discounted as it’s power packed with a blend of four essential oils infused in the formula: jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, aloe oil, and olive oil.

I received a lippie each from both ranges and here’s a little sneak peak:

I got a few queries on how similar Best Date Ever is with the holiday’s Naughty and Nice. Here’s a comparison of the two, Best Date Ever being the bottom swatch. They’re great separately and just when I thought Naughty and Nice will be dethroned as my favourite SUAKM lippie, Best Date Ever came so close!

 Here are some lip swatches together with skin swatches. I love them both and payday can’t wait to grab a few more! :)
