Happy Skin just keeps on surprising us! I'm still not over how gorgeous their Beauty in Bloom Collection is and now they released two new shades of their best-selling product!
To celebrate Preview's 20th anniversary, they have decided to collaborate with Happy Skin Cosmetics and came up with two limited edition (LE) of Shut Up & Kiss Me lipsticks. I'm not sure how long it was promoted before its release last June 1. I only found out about this collaboration over the weekend and could not contain my excitement. Last Sunday, I waited til midnight so I could order the lippies at Zalora. They also collaborated with Zalora so for the first week, these lippies will only be available thru this online shop. Order it there and slash Php100 off from its retail price of PhP1,099 for the set. I didn't get a discount because they only announced it yesterday afternoon. Boo.
Shut Up & Kiss Me lipstick in Too Cool and Hot Stuff
I didn't know what to expect about the shades cos there was no hint whatsoever. Or I probably didn't get the hint (except for the red one which was a given). I initially thought Too Cool was going to be a hot pink shade.
Kudos for the packaging. This is my fave among all collections!

Too Cool is the star above. Hot Stuff is the star below.
When I opened Too Cool, I thought it's a plain beige lipstick. It looks like it. I'm more than happy that this is is nude lipstick because I prefer this over Happy Skin's family shade of Pink. The shade is not totally nude though. There's a hint of pink once swatched and applied on the lips. I'm trying to remember if I have a lipstick similar to this but I'm spacing out right now. Too Cool can be worn alone as it doesn't wash out my already-pale face.

Tried is as blush, too!
Hot Stuff is something of a vampy colour. First look and I thought it's similar to MAC Sin, MAC Diva, MAC Fixed on Drama and a cousin of NYX Siren and Mac Heaux or Rebel. But I reckon this is closest to MAC Sin. Guys, the photo below is just one swipe of the lipstick. It's pigmentation is making me nuts. Aaaaang gandaaaaa! Just make sure that you line your lips perfectly cos you wouldn't want crooked lips, right?
I'd say that among the collections of Happy Skin, this has got to be my favourite (lipstick wise). Although it's smart to release three per collection (consisting of nude, pink, and red), I always find myself liking the pink ones the least once all the lipsticks have grown on me. I reach out for the nudes/brown and the red ones from my Happy Skin lipstick stash.
Good job Happy Skin and Preview! Happy Anniverary, too! If you want to see more photos of this collaboration, the official hashtag is #PreviewXHappySkin. You can try #ImAPreviewGirl as well.
