Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie | The Review

dsc08863

Let me tell you… I was actually surprised with how well this product turned out. I didn’t know much about the brand Happy Skin, all I literally knew was that it was a Filipino brand with excellent branding. Initially, I kind of had a bad notion of local beauty brands by not being so up to par with international drugstore brands, which made me not so keen on getting it in the first place. But this product really changed my mind!


The lippies on the photo above are from the Preview X Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie Set. The two shades in this box are Too Cool(nude) and Hot Stuff(dark berry). The two are very contrasting shades when put side to side but are equally lovely side by side.

When I first received this(it was a gift[add link to post]), I was already so eager to try it, so I did. And to my surprise, it was pretty darn amazing. Upon initial application, it glided smoothly on the lips very well and settled comfortably. 

What I was so WOW-ed about was that it was moisturizing and stayed on for a good amount of time, even after a meal or too. How is that even possible?! In the few times that I have worn this during the holidays, my lips never felt dry what so ever because typical matte lipsticks have that effect.

A little bird told me that Happy Skin products are made in Taiwan, Korea, but most of them are produced in Japan and packaged in the Philippines. No wonder they are such impressive products!

Too Cool is a great nude shade to have in your lippie collection! Aside from nudes being everyone’s favorite shade, it noticeably lasts pretty long on the lips! Hot Stuff reminds me of the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 and I can’t believe I am saying this, but I think this one is better!

Aside from getting this on their website or at their counters in selected malls, you can readily grab this online on Zalora!

Rimmel Sculpting Palette | The Review

dsc00505-2

I first saw this product in one of the “new in the drugstore” videos of Pixiwoo on Youtube and though “Huh, that is some really nice packaging!”. Rimmel is known to have some noteworthy products as well as some misses. But at a first glance, this one made me do a mental note to grab this when I have the chance!


The Rimmel London Sculpting Palette in Coral Glow is a great way to save some cash instead of buying 3 seperate products. This has got to be the first drugstore product I have seen that has 3 pans for contour, blush and highlight because you usually see just the 2, contour and highlight. Did I mention that it is only about $7? 

Before you think that you are completely splurging on this(how could you though?), you are paying $7 for 3 products, which on a normal day can cost you almost $20, if you are lucky. So when you see this in you local drugstore grab it!

The things I like about this is not only its rose gold packaging but also its wearability. The bronzer isn’t too orange and isn’t too pigmented too! Although I did go overboard one time(haha). The blush reminds me of the blush shade in the Urban Decay Flushed Palette in Streaked. May I say, the blush is pretty pigmented too!

I was the highlight was more pigmented though. I had to swatch it a couple of times for it to clearly show up on my hand. Upon application, it gives a very subtle highlight on my cheeks.

Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil | The Review

dsc00454-2

It is no secret that Maybelline New York hits it out of the ball park with (some) their cosmetics. There is a reason why they are a worldwide household brand, and it is because they give great quality at a even better price!


The Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencils are definitely something I haven’t seen previously on the drugstore shelves of Maybelline because I usually see their color sensational range on the regular. What I like about this line is that it’s color scheme more vivid or it may have to do with the formula too.

The packaging is standard!

The finish of the lip pencil has more of a demi-matte finish(not quite matte) but good enough for it to last a decent amount of time. The shade Red Essential is such a great lip shade to wear to a more formal event because of its rich shade. I also like that it is more of a cool toned red. As for the shade Nude Perfection, it reminds me of MAC Matte Velvet Teddy. It is more of a peachy nude, which are my favorite types of nudes. 

This product is a total win for me except for the fact that the thickness of the pencil makes it hard to sharpen since it can’t fit the usual sharpener holes! (cries inside) I have yet to find a way to sharpen these babies!
