Happy Skin and Heart Evangelista's third (yes, third!) makeup collaboration is their biggest one yet. From having a set of mini lipsticks and lip liners in 2016, to releasing two full-sized products in 2018, this year's collection has a total of six brand new products that the actress co-created. Heart also considers this collab one of her most personal ones to date—"I really wanted this to be different from all of my collaborations by really being super detailed, even with how every lippie name was special," she says. The lip gloss in Missy, for one, is named after her character in G-Mik, which was her first ever role in television!
All of the products feature a mosaic painting by Heart on the box and on the lipstick itself, which can be seen wrapped around the tube in gold. The collection also includes three different formulas from Happy Skin: a matte stick, a moussey liquid, and a gloss. Everything is in easy and wearable shades of nude, pink, and red that Heart herself swears by!
First up are new shades of the Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippies, which come in the brand's signature chubby stick packaging. Love Me is a peachy nude color named after the actress' childhood mantra, while Kiss Me is a deep, old rose hue.
Meanwhile, two shades come in the new Vivid Cotton Lip Mousse pens—a cushiony liquid lipstick with a sponge applicator. My Story is a flattering nude pink, and Heart is the actress' signature brick red.
Lastly, there are the two Cooling Lip Glosses, which are said to be Heart's favorite. The mauve (Missy) and pink (A Moment) shades give the lips a hint of shine and a refreshing minty feel.
Can't wait to get your hands on everything? We have good news: Everything will be on pre-sale on Zalora from July 31 to August 2 and will hit all Happy Skin stores and online retailers by August 2 and 5, respectively. But before the products hit the market, the Preview team gave all six lip products a test run. Scroll ahead to read our thoughts!
Happy Skin x Love Marie Vivid Cotton Lip Mousse in My Story + Cooling Lip Gloss in A Moment
"I tried both My Story and A Moment together and I like them both! Both the colors are super flattering against my skin tone; they're both my MLBBs, actually. The mousse lipstick feels so light and airy. You won't feel like you're wearing lipstick at all! I applied the gloss on top, which gave my lips the right amount of shine. It's minty and not super sticky as you would expect a normal gloss to be, which is a plus—I can wear my hair down without worrying about my strands sticking to my lips.
"In terms of longevity, the mousse on its own lasts quite a while and requires little touch-ups. But when the gloss is layered over it, you'll need to redo the entire lip after a meal. Overall, I would love to wear these two together and on their own, and they're the perfect choice for a no-makeup makeup look." - Steph Sison, Fashion Assistant for Features
Happy Skin x Love Marie Vivid Cotton Lip Mousse in Heart
"I can be very picky with my reds, but this is the kind of wearable brick color I see myself wearing every day. I'd imagine it'll look great on other skin tones, too. The sponge applicator definitely makes the product easy to apply and blend over my lips, though I admit I'd prefer one that's easier to clean. The lipstick itself feels very soft and moussey and sets into a comfortable semi-matte finish. It doesn't feel drying at all and I find that it fades gracefully—just press your lips together to blend the color after you eat or drink!" - Nicole Arcano, Beauty Assistant
Happy Skin x Love Marie Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Kiss Me + Cooling Lip Gloss in Missy
"Kiss Me is such a great MLBB shade that's close to my natural lipcolor. I really prefer mauve lippies as my MLBB shade, and the formula is just as good as the original moisturizing matte lipsticks. I layered it with the Cooling Lip Gloss in the shade Missy and it matches it perfectly! The gloss is actually less of a gloss and more of a really thin liquid lipstick texture with some shine. I like it because it's very wearable and quite subtle. I do want my glosses a lot shinier, but that's a personal preference. If you're the type to wear minimal makeup, though, the gloss is pretty good for a touch of color and shine!" - Maura Rodriguez, Associate Social Media Editor
Happy Skin x Love Marie Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippie in Love Me
"This shade applied really smoothly. That's honestly what I like about Happy Skin lipsticks! They all seem to just glide! Staying power isn't anything special, though—it rubs off on straws and when I eat, but that's not really a huge problem to me because it looks good! When I do reapply, it stays on just fine 'til I get hungry again. LOL! I would wear it again, except that I feel this isn’t quite my color as I prefer my dabbed-on bright pinks and corals." - Yanna Lopez, Fashion Assistant for Trend & Shopping Features
