This has got to be my favorite Happy Skin release yet. Everything in this collection suits my light/medium yellow-olive skin tone.
I bought the sets from Zalora last Friday and received the products yesterday. I have nothing substantial to say about them yet, but I received several requests for swatches and now here we are.
Happy Skin Glisten Up Strobing Kit
I love the contour shade a lot. It’s the grey-toned yellow-brown shade I’ve been looking for. I still have to figure out how best to apply it. I’m used to bronzing with cream formulas, but I haven’t contoured with a cream product yet. I stand by my belief that bronzing and contouring are two different things.
Anyway, the highlight stick is a slightly peachy champagne color. It’s a little too glimmery for my liking but, I think I can make it work.
Happy Skin x Plains and Prints Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippies
These are what I was more excited about (of course!). I felt like they had me in mind when they were conceptualizing these shades–like someone from Happy Skin’s product development team said, ‘Guys, I think it’s time to make shades that Rae would REALLY go crazy about.’
Happy Skin Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Scene Stealer
Definitely a Scene Stealer.
I don’t know what I-can’t-even means, but it feels right to say it — I CAN’T EVEN!
Happy Skin came out with another deep red in the past, Hot Stuff. I liked that shade, too. But I had sooo many other lipsticks in that shade. Compared to Hot Stuff, Scene Stealer is slightly brighter, berry-er, and more vivid. Initially, I thought it had the same shade as MAC D for Danger, but when I swatched them side-by-side, the latter is one to two shades lighter.
Happy Skin Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Girl Boss
FINALLY!!! A medium soft mauve/blue pink. I knew in my heart that Happy Skin would make this color. I know I have a thousand and one mauve lipsticks, but I have one more room for something cleaner, brighter, but not too cool-toned.
In terms of formula, finish, and longevity, these new matte lipsticks are consistent with the quality of the first release. Here’s my review: Preview x Happy Skin Moisturizing Matte Lippies.
It might take me a while to post an in-depth review of these. Let me know if there’s a particular item you’d want me to pay attention to first.
