Happy Skin has found its way into the beauty kits and on the budoirs of countless women. My daughter and I share our Happy Skin stash. Their products have become part of our makeup regimen. We love them!

According to Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, Happy Skin’s Co-founder, “we launched only five months ago and yet we have women aged fifteen to fifty who love our products! We have students, debutantes, brides, career women, models, moms, even makeup artists and celebrities buying Happy Skin.”
Co-founder Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez gushes, “it really warms our hearts whenever we receive an email of heartfelt thanks as they were literally wowed with the Happy Skin product they bought and had to personally thank us. This really fills me with a sense of fulfillment that what we’ve touched their lives and made it a bit better.” “I’m particularly touched whenever they tell us that they’ve searched for so long for a makeup that will be good for their skin and how Happy Skin became the answer to their prayers.”
“The response of women has been tremendous! To each of them, it boils down to finding a makeup brand that finally makes it easy to look beautiful without harming their skin,” further explains Rissa of the brand’s quick rise up the modern Pinay’s consciousness.
What’s Hot with Happy Skin
The Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippies, Don’t Get Mad Get Even foundations, Get Cheeky With Me blushes and the SS Crème are the top-sellers.
Fresh from the beauty boxes and available at the Happy Skin counters are fab new makeup products that love your skin: Feeling Sculptacular Face Contour Kit, the Eye Love View Pencil & Marker Eyebrow Duo, Make a Clean Sweep Revitalizing Micellar Water Makeup Cleanser, and the dependable Eye Am Here To Stay Eyeliner now comes in gel pencil form.
But the hottest products to hit Happy Skin counters are the limited edition summer collection:
Turn Up The Heat Summer Collection 2014
Add to cart: Aryanna and I are fans of Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Turn Up The Heat Lippies. They are our “everyday” lipsticks!
I’m super loving their new coral hue! The pigment is bold and moisturizes your skin the whole day. This particular product gets a two legs up for me, haha!
I just know Aryanna will love the new colors of Happy Skin’s Get Cheeky With Me blushes because she likes subtle colors for her cheeks.
Lakas maka-bagets ng blush na ‘to!
Wouldn’t you love to place your bets on someone you can trust? Imagine this: Someone who promises to stand by you through tears—both happy and sad. Someone who helps transform you into the best you that you can possibly be. Someone who brings out the sparkle in your eye. The same criteria apply to eyeliners.
Perfect Black for a rich ebon that can either be either steadily drawn or deliberately smudged for a dramatic smoky-eye look.
Chic Brown has a deep cocoa tinge that gives eyes a soft, natural shape—best for those who want their eyes to appear bigger.
Peppermint, on the other hand, is great for a milky pop of bright on your lash line. This tone freshens up your stare and makes you appear well-rested.
When coming up with new products to add to Happy Skin’s growing roster, Happy Skin co-founder Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez explains, “We always start with thinking about how we can improve and offer something that isn’t currently available in the market.”
Co-founder Rissa Mananquil-Trillo echoes the same concept, pushing it a step further by adding that aside from fresh new products, they also make sure the products truly work. “Apart from being a business, this is a passion for us. We’re extremely hands-on with creating products and we go to great lengths just to test them. I love that Jacqe is a perfectionist like me. We only launch products we can swear our lives on,” Rissa declares.
Congrats Happy Skin on your new collection! With so many awesome and fabulous products that you have, I have a feeling that your humble homegrown brand will soon become a beauty empire!
