Happy Skin: A new line that cares for and beautifies your skin

If you have Instagram, you surely know that it is abuzz with news on this newest makeup brand called Happy Skin. Now I am more than happy and proud to formally introduce you this recent milestone in the local beauty industry.


What is happiness, anyway? Happiness is taking delight in swiping your favorite lippie, dotting that pretty blush on your cheeks, and lacing your skin with that luminizing and perfecting foundation all while knowing that in the end you'll still end up with beautiful, healthy skin despite the layers of makeup-at least that's what Jacqe Yuengtian- Gutierrez and Rissa Mananquil- Trillo believe in. These two gorgeous ladies are super successful in their own right, yet they are one of the humblest and most genuine people I know-I've worked with them in a couple of projects and even if our relationship was on a professional level, they both never fail to make me (and the other beauty bloggers) feel familiar and welcome every time. Together, they joined forces in creating Happy Skin, a genuinely feel- good skin care- based makeup brand that is set to launch another standard in the world of Filipino premium cosmetics, but at a fairly affordable cost.

Happy Skin is simply that: Makeup that makes your skin happy. Coming from experience, Rissa and Jacqe shared how they conceptualized the brand. As a former senior brand manager for one of the biggest skin care brands in the world, Jacqe has talked with a lot of women and learned that all they're yearning for is flawless, healthy skin, with or without makeup-add to that, creating her very own beauty brand was a lifelong dream of hers as well. Rissa, who's a seasoned model and beauty columnist mused how makeup would always ruin her skin after a hard day's work of strutting on the runways or posing in front of the camera, and she dreamed of discovering a brand that won't damage her skin. Unknown to many, the two became very close when Rissa became a brand ambassador for the brand Jacqe was working for-from then on, they developed a very special friendship that extends beyond the professional field. They are both enamored by anything related to beauty so when Jacqe told Rissa about Happy Skin, Rissa became very interested, tried the products right away and was blown away by the quality that she decided to invest. After 6 months of hard, passionate work, Happy Skin came into fruition.

Such an inspiration, right? I'll be telling you all about the products after the cut, plus check out some of my favorites!

Happy Skin is comprised of classic beauty products made with Japanese Green Tea, Argan Oil, and Hyaluronic Acid to name a few. These products are meant to work overtime in caring for your skin while providing you with the right kind of color that you need. All products are made in Japan and were formulated from scratch-you're guaranteed that they're all top-of-the-line, not to mention the packaging is so classy and pretty!

Here's my top favorite: Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie.

This is their only lip product so far. It's smooth, exquisite, pigmented and highly moisturizing that I couldn't believe it's P499.00 only!

The shade that got me is called First Kiss. Isn't it pretty? :D

The product that I've been itching to try is this: Don't Get Mad Get Even Hydrating Powder Foundation. By the way, Happy Skin's base products have options for morena skin, which is what Rissa made sure of. She said that as a morena, it's hard for her to find a shade match in most local makeup brands and I could totally relate!

Oh! A concealer, and it's in a long, big tube! :D

When I got to the event, I zoomed in immediately on the Don't Get Mad Get Even Hydrating Liquid Foundation. I like its compact size. It currently comes in three shades. Another promising foundation brand to try!

Happy Skin also has a brush set priced at P2,500.00 and comes in a patent pouch. It definitely reminds me of Trish McEvoy's makeup brushes, but this one is utterly more affordable. When I asked Rissa why they chose white as the color for the bristles, she said that the logic is simple: The color of the bristles will always remind you that it's time for you to rinse 'em clean. Many women don't know that sometimes, breakouts are being caused by dirty makeup brushes.

Here's a more detailed look at Happy Skin's products:
