As Happy Skin turns two this month, they were happy to share that day in and day out, they sell over one hundred lippies, without fail. And because of this, one of my favorite homegrown brands of skin-caring makeup devotes its holiday 2015 collection to a true best-seller that’s been making women everywhere happiest: the cult-favorite Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippie.

From the introduction of its very first lippie—the Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie, launched back in October 2013—Happy Skin right away delivered what women have always longed for in a lippie. I myself is in love with its intense color and moisture. Some women I know even proclaim it's their best lippie ever. 

"Love at first swipe" is how we call it. 

Rissa Mananquil-Trillo shares, “Loyal fans always share with us how our lippies have made them feel better about themselves, gotten them compliments, and inspired them to level up their beauty moves. So we focused our holiday collection on lippies for them."

Just for the holidays, Happy Skin’s best-loved lippies will come in gold-stamped, hardbound books that equip you on How to Take the Perfect #Selfie, How to Make Beauty Effortless, How to Make a Statement, and How to Conquer the World.

These books celebrate the different lifestyles of women today. You have the everyday gal who’s always on the lookout for the perfect #selfie, the effortless beauty who prefers a simple ‘no-makeup’ makeup look, the fashionista who’s set to make a statement with everything she does, and the power woman who wants to leave her mark on the world.

The first of four books, the How to Take the Perfect #Selfie Moisturizing Lippie Set (P1,499) contains three wearable Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies. I chose to get this one first too as they’re the perfect things to stash in my purse. Three shades of potent color, just what I need for all the events I have lined up.


From L to R: #StrikeAPose with a pretty berry hue that instantly brightens up the face and lifts the mood, #StayHappy with a gorgeous earthy peach shade that makes the lips look ultra-fresh, and #PuckerUp with a flattering light mauve that will be your next makeup kit mainstay.

For the woman who likes to keep her makeup to a minimum, there’s the How to Make Beauty Effortless Lip & Cheek Mousse Set (P1,199), which has two suits-all-skin-tones Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse shades that have the right balance of pigments to enhance both lips and cheeks. With anti-aging peptides and SPF 15 in the lightweight formula, this double-duty product also rejuvenates and protects. 

Fall In Love with a peachy glow that complements fair and warm skin tones, and Laugh Always with a universally-flattering earthy-nude that makes looking and feeling beautiful a breeze. 

Expanding the hit Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie range is the How to Make a Statement Moisturizing Matte Lippie Set (P1,099), which comes with two new, soon-to-be cult-fave shades. It Girl is the perfect nude pink that will take you from workweek to weekend, and goes well with a smokey-eye look. The holidays are also the time of year when women who don’t normally wear bold lip colors to start doing so—the cherry red Heartbreaker makes everyday feel like a special occasion.

To round up the new collection, the How to Conquer the World Moisturizing Lip Lacquer Set (P1,199) includes two of Happy Skin’s most innovative lippie yet—the shiny-yet-weightless Shut Up & Kiss Me Power Pout Moisturizing Lip Lacquer. The two shades were huge hits when launched so Happy Skin wanted to offer these best-sellers again for the holidays. Power Pout uses a wax-free gel technology, so despite its intensely pigmented, high-shine formula, it still feels non-sticky on the lips.


The How to Conquer the World Moisturizing Lip Lacquer Set consists of the nude lilac Royal Treatment and the red orange Hear Me Roar. 

These gift-ready sets make it easy for people to share their favorite lippies with loved ones—or to treat themselves with new shades and a multi-purpose kit. 


And to make their amazing cosmetics accessible to us, they have opened their first boutique in Glorietta 3, Ayala Grand Mall.
