Another reason why I envy those of you who are now in the Philippines, except for being with your family and friends, is because Happy Skin is now available there!
By now, I am sure you've heard or read, or even tried the amazing products from Happy Skin. Happy Skin is the newest brand of cosmetics that doesn't only enhance your natural beauty but also takes care of your skin with its special skincare ingredients, such as Japanese tea leaf, cherry blossom, hyaluronic acid and Argan Oil, to name a few. Women nowadays are so much concerned with their skin and scared that using makeup may just harm or aggravate their skin condition. Happy Skin takes care of your skin, your ally in making your skin happy and therefore looking healthier and more beautiful.
The complete range is small, having only a few shades for their powder and liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer (called the SS or second skin cream), blushes, lipsticks and under eye concealer.
Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo are the beauties and brains behind the brand. Jacqe used to work under a global brand handling personal care products and Rissa is one of the top models and an in-demand host in the Philippines. Both ladies knew the importance of makeup in enhancing one's natural beauty without compromising the skin condition. They were hands-on right from the start, even tested the samples on themselves, to make sure that each product will make the women, and their skin happy!
If you'll notice, Jacqe is a mestiza while Rissa is a morena. This only means that both skintones are catered to by Happy Skin! They may have limited shades for now but for sure, the brand will come up with more shades...and more products soon!
And now let's take a closer look at their products:

I can say that among all the products, these babies are the ones I am so curious about. I've been reading a lot of good things about these and I've seen swatches, and they are so gorgeous. Here's a swatch photo courtesy of Shen:

Hah, move over BB and CC creams! (Do we have DD creams na ba?)
SS cream is here!
And guess what, they have a makeup brush set too!
Brush 'Em Off Girl Makeup Brush Set, Php2499
Brush bad vibes away with this makeup brush set! The Happy Skin Brush ‘Em Off Girl includes eight petal soft brushes that help sweep away those frowns, while the crystal clear acrylic handles give clarity to your thoughts making each boo-hoo moment feel like a brand new day.
Aside from the witty product names, the packaging are adorable too! These babies are definitely eye-catching and collection-worthy! The prices may be a bit higher than drugstore and local brands available but hey, they are infused with skin-caring ingredients and are made in Japan. I was able to check out some of the samples before and I can say they are comparable to high-end brands. The powders are finely-milled, reminds me of Shiseido's and the lippies are like Clinique's chubby sticks. Sorry for the comparison but that's just my opinion. And I'm sure that those who have tried would say the same.
I so cannot wait to get my hands on these. Hopefully they'll have an online store soon that delivers internationally...hahaha, nope, I am not being demanding. I'm just dying of envy of those who are now enjoying these babies.
Happy Skin is now available at Plains & Prints stores in Alabang Town Center, Glorietta, Megamall, Shangri-la and Trinoma. Watch out as they will be available soon at other beauty stores and Plains & Prints boutiques.
