Quickie: Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in Girls Night Out

Here’s a quick post of another shade of Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie. I’ve reviewed two of the lighter shades previously (Crushing on You and Summer Fling) here, so if you would like a more in-depth review on this particular range, you can read that. Girls Night Out is a red violet shade, and is one of the two darkest shades in the range, and it’s the less-red and cooler of the two. The other one is a bit more red.

Happy Skin Eye Need a Miracle Concealer

So, I dragged my mom to a Happy Skin Counter and this is what she ended up getting. To be honest, I think she got the Eye Need a Miracle Concealer for me, since I wouldn’t shut up about it. I didn’t want to buy it just yet because it had an alarming amount of glitter in it, for something that’s supposed to conceal dark circles. Eye Need a Miracle only has one shade, Butter, and I’ve been told that it “adjusts” to any skin tone. I’m a big ol’ skeptic when it comes to these things because I can’t fathom how that works out, but it swatches fine on my medium skin color:

Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie and Eye am Here to Stay Liquid Eyeliner

You know when you keep going back and forth, visiting a counter and swatching the same damn things and walking away? Yeah, well, I’ve been doing that dance for a few weeks before I finally caved and bought some items from Happy Skin Cosmetics, the newest local beauty brand that’s been making waves. It’s not even that hard to see why there’s buzz around this new line of cosmetics. They released only a handful of items, which is something I actually prefer for new baby brands because you know they took their time formulating the products and getting each one perfectly. I picked up the “friendliest” items of the bunch; at least, in my opinion. I have the Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in Crushing on You, a pretty rosy mauve MLBB shade, and Summer Fling, which is a pinky peach. I also got Eye am Here to Stay 24h Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in 01 Perfect Black. I don’t think there are any other colors available at the moment. All of the items …

Quickie: Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes Super Fresh Texturizing Beach Waves

I am a sucker for beachy, wavy hair worthy of a spot on Blue Crush. (Do you like my dated reference?) The problem is that I have pin straight, very thick hair that gives a whole new meaning to “pony tail.” Alas, I didn’t inherit my mom’s naturally wavy hair, and nothing ever really worked out for me and my hair. I remember a photoshoot for a magazine where I got my hairz did, and while waiting for everyone else, my curls unraveled so the hair stylist just gathered my messy waves into a side ponytail. So, the Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes Texturizing Beach Waves (Php 299) was something I was eager to try. Product Description: ” Summer hair all year round! Embrace imperfection! Tousled , messy sexy beach hair is this seasons latest hair trend! 🙂 Hair Heroes Super Fresh Sage Tea Tree & Peppermint Texturizing Beach Waves Sea salt. Moringa. Softly separates for shiny, sexy, mussed waves. Heat Safe.” I should have known better, because it did not work for me at all. …
