Juan Sarte is one of the most respected makeup artists in the country with 22 years of experience under his belt and a roster of big shot clientele including celebrities such as Anne Curtis and Maine Mendoza. Nice to know that he'll be doing my makeup everyday from now on...well, not literally, but figuratively because I got in my hands Glam Squad Sarte, his makeup collaboration with local beauty brand, Happy Skin.
HAPPY SKIN X GLAM SQUAD JUAN SARTE LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK IN DETAIL
Glam Squad is Happy Skin's collaboration with 4 of the most sought after makeup artists in the country: Juan Sarte, Jigs Mayuga, Denise Go- Ochoa, and Mickey See. The collection features shades and textures chosen by the make up artists themselves, and features the following products: Contour and Blush duo, eye shadow duo, liquid lipstick, eyebrow duo, and limited edition makeup brush set.
For the selection process, Sarte spilled that for the eyeshadows, he chose two shades that he would always reach for during makeup gigs: a champagne-pink frost shade and chocolate brown frost shade; Sarte mused that he loves using eye shadows in a frost finish because they're the easiest to blend together and I couldn't agree more with it; he also wanted the customers to have an easy time using his products. For the lipstick, he said that it's the exact shade he wanted, a deep rose with a strong brown undertone.
SARTE'S PRO TIP: You can use the lipstick as a stain too; just dab a bit of color on the center of your upper and lower lips, and spread out quickly.

Matte Liquid Lipstick ingredients
The eye shadows have a buttery finish; reminds me of Urban Decay's Naked eye shadows in terms of its buttery and soft texture; it yields very minimal fallout and pigmentation is medium to heavy.
The lipstick is unscented and has a semi-runny consistency that allows you to spread the product all over your lips before it sets. Remember to even out this product before it sets because it is budge- proof!
HAPPY SKIN GLAM SQUAD JUAN SARTE EYE SHADOW DUO AND LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK IN ACTION
The eye shadow shades are basic and it is your classic, go- to palette, the one that you whip out your bag if you need to glam up your eyes in an instant.
Sarte's liquid matte lipstick is a dirty Rose shade on me. I like its vintage rose look and it's a nice not-too-dark shade to wear to stay on trend in this season of dark lipsticks. This lipstick has a legit matte finish, kudos to Happy Skin for the good formula. Formula sits nicely on the lips and doesn't feel heavy. Overall, it has great quality.
The lippie has really good staying power: I can drink and eat a heavy meal with it, and the lipstick will persist to stay; it can't be removed easily so I always use petroleum jelly for removal. However, it has a tendency to dry out my lips and sink into lines, especially if my lips are acting up, but on good days, my lips are okay with the formula.
This is a pretty good collection and I am impressed with the formula of the liquid matte lipstick; Happy Skin should retain it and expand the color selection soon. If you're a neutrals gal, you'll find new key shades and products to add to your collection from Glam Squad, plus the packaging is so luxurious!
