A year into their growing success, Happy Skin remains as bold as the cheeky names of their products and as steadfast to their happy claims. On their first anniversary, their hot NEW must-have products were specifically made to get your kit on-trend and you, beaming with joy. Make many more happy moments with Happy Skin’s anniversary loot:
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse (P699 each) is a dual-action lip-cheek wand that colors your puckers with velvety richness and lends cheeks a lasting, happy flush. “I’ve never been a fan of a lip and cheek product because I always had a hard time spreading the stain on my cheek!” says Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez, co-founder of Happy Skin. “But we recognize the beauty of having a lip and cheek product as it’s super convenient! So we searched for a formulation that will look lovely on the lips but still be very spreadable on the cheeks. We found the perfect solution with the mousse formula!” excitedly shares Jacqe.
“This lightweight barely-there product has a color intensity that can survive both kisses and even white bed sheets!” says co-founder of the brand Rissa Mananquil-Trillo. “It is surprisingly light, easy to blend, and remains streak-free even over makeup and powder. You only need a tiny amount to look great everyday and it will never feel greasy or oily even with humid weather,” Rissa adds.
This 2-in-1 makeup must-have hydrates, primes, repairs & rejuvenates with anti-aging Peptides, and protects with SPF 15. It also features Shea Butter and Collagen – the same lip-lovin’ ingredients from Happy Skin’s bestselling Shut Up & Kiss Me moisturizing lippies.
Touted as the brand’s “Next Big Thing,” Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse makes its joyful debut in three shades: yuletide-red Mistletoe Kiss, a bold must for the festively feisty woman; Swept Off My Feet, a sweet but punchy pink; and Warm And Toasty, a friendly taupe that’ll keep your nude pucker appropriate but warmly approachable.
Happy Skin All Eyes On Hue Eyeshadow Palette (P1,299) is set to bring on the happy from day to night with a carefully-curated palette of very useful colors. They can take you from the office to date night. “A lot of women have been asking us to create our eyeshadow palette so this has been in the works for quite some time. It was very hard for us to select the final colors that we included,” explains Jacqe. “We wanted to simplify our eyeshadow palette — I personally usually buy an eyeshadow palette with ten colors but only end up using 3-4 shades regularly!”
Rissa shares, “I love wearing eyeshadow. Modeling for so many years, I’ve seen the magic it can do. The right eyeshadow can make eyes look bigger, brighter, more beautiful – even younger and well rested! For Happy Skin’s first ever eyeshadow palette, we made sure to feature four ultra-wearable shades that compliment each other and that also flatter every skin tone!”
“The Oatmeal shade is my dream eyeshadow hue. It’s the perfect champagne shimmer that gives a natural moonlit glow, as if eyelids were gently kissed by moonbeams,” shares Rissa. Unlike other matte eyeshadows that tend to make eyes look sullen and old, the Biscuit shadow is a pretty pastel pink that brings life to the eyes. “Use it when you want to look fresh and feeling brand new,” suggests Rissa. When you first see Hazelnut, the color looks like a deep dark metallic brown, but once you apply it, “the color is a flattering warm copper shimmer. The gleam it gives is so beautiful!” she adds. Lastly, a grounding Espresso shade completes the list for those who want a stronger, striking stare. “It’s a velvety matte brown sprinkled with rose gold,” says Rissa.

Happy Skin Eye Need A Miracle Corrector (P799) proves that you can fake happy ‘til you feel it. A sister product to the yellow-based Eye Need A Miracle Concealer, the new Eye Need A Miracle Corrector is salmon hued. “While a concealer can cover up mild discolorations, this seeks to hide deeper and darker imperfections,” says Jacqe. This potent product powerfully tackles fatigue under the eyes, extremely dark circles, scars, veins, bruises, and yes, even tattoos and birthmarks!
“Its salmon hue aims to neutralize bluish undertones,” explains Rissa. “When we were testing the prototypes for this product, what wowed me the most was how it superbly made my birthmark disappear, as if I was never born with one!” shares Rissa. Happy Skin even claims that this corrector can even cover up mistakes like tattoos—an ex’s name, perhaps? With a nifty product like this, you can forget the sad, bad, and the ugly, and bring on the happy all the time.
To sum it all up, Rissa says, “Filipinas like Happy Skin because we fulfill not just their beauty wishes but equally address all their frustrations with makeup. It’s women’s complaints that inspire our products.”
