I don’t even know where to begin. First of all, I’m not exactly a beauty expert and will only share my honest opinion and experiences with make up -BUUUT- I just have to say that I’ve been testing and trying one too many products lately and I’m breaking out!!! Aaaaaaahk. THANK GOD I tried Happy Skin before the chaos on my face!

So before I decided to turn myself into a beauty guinea pig I attended the launch of Happy Skin’s 2015 limited summer collection, Beauty in Bloom – and of course I was surrounded by no less than Manila’s most gorgeous women, celebrity make up artists and super fab make up. And oh the food was good! Yum.

It was my second time to come to Le Jardin and I just have to say that I love afternoon events. Doesn’t it look like a beautiful garden in Paris?!


The Happy Skin event had a Flower Market and speciality shop Print Cafe pop-up printing all the guests personalized notecards. What a treat!

I particularly enjoyed the make-up station & loved, loved, LOVED the Eye Am The One Holy Grail Mascara!!! I have a serious eye lash problem, thin and short hair strands. Such a pity! BUUT look at them now… Lord Ramos + Happy Skin mascara definitely did wonders. it’s my current MUST HAVE mascara to date.

Wasn’t I right about the guest list? Look at the gorgeous ladies I spotted! Hot.


Check out the Happy Skin Summer 2015 Limited Edition Collection: Beauty in Bloom. YUP – the products are as amazing as the packaging!


And since I can’t have all, I’ve narrowed it down to my personal favourites. My comment: Happy Skin is so light on the skin that I don’t feel the need to wash my face every so often because of the Manila’s humidity and heat!


And of course, I want you to meet the beautiful brains behind the Happy Skin: Rissa Mananquil Trillo and Jacqe Yuengtian Gutierrez. I’ve known Rissa for quite sometime now… I met during my days as a brand manager for Rustans- it was her prime in the modelling industry. With the amount of make-up she had to wear, trust me -THIS GIRL- knows what she’s talking about! Happy Skin rocks!!! :)

Happy Skin is available at Rustan’s Makati and Shangri-La, Beauty Bar, Plains & Prints, The SM Store Makati and Mall of Asia, and Watsons Mall of Asia | Follow them on Instagram: @happyskin_ph | Twitter: @happyskin_ph | Facebook: facebook.com/happyskincosmetics
