How busy are you, on a scale of one to ten? Are you able to do everything you need and want to during the day? And the most important question: are you happy with the pace of your life? It might feel like it's impossible to slow down at this point, but sometimes you just have to stop yo' self before you wreck yo' self (as the saying goes). Find a balance between the things you care about and focus on your priorities instead of what's shoved in front of you.
You're not going to live forever after all, but as long as you do, you might as well live for real.
Moving along! Let's discuss the Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse (P699). This line of liquid colors came out during the holidays and is a permanent part of the Happy Skin collection. It features three basic colors that are wearable and intentionally universally flattering: a pink, a nude, and a classic red.
Each shade is pigmented in a single swatch. Use them as a solid layer on your lips and as a sheered out veil over your cheeks! Finish is matte once the product dries a bit. The texture is super smooth and mousse-y (due to the silicone) so blending is a breeze, plus, it doesn't dry out lips. The wand is also nicely shaped for depositing the color and ensuring that it sticks to the skin.
The Happy Skin mousse stays on about three to four hours on my lips and around the same time on my cheeks. I've found that My Guilty Pleasure stains the most, which means that it lasts longer compared to the other two.
The colors are gorgeous as you can see! These are all warm shades so they should work with most skin tones. It's only a matter of choosing which color you fancy most and I'm pretty sure it'll look good on you.
Swept Off My Feet is a mid-tones warm pink. It looks so lovely as a blush - it flatters my skin tone so well. This is an everyday fool-proof color that's safe for the office or school.
If you prefer looking like you barely have any makeup on, Warm and Toasty has your name on it. It's exactly as the name suggests! It's a peachy nude that evens out the color of the lips and gives a natural flush on the cheeks. Shades like this usually wash me out but this one has a brown undertone that keeps it from looking pale on skin.
My Guilty Pleasure is a bright cherry red. If you're sick of matte red lipsticks that make your lips as dry as the Sahara, this one's for you! It has a bit of shine when it's freshly applied but that quickly goes away as it dries.
Tip: if you're going to use this color on your cheeks, make sure to just use one tiny dot per side. It's really quite pigmented so you don't need much.
Another tip: this can bleed on the lips when not applied properly. Blot out the first layer with tissue first before applying the final layer! That dry base will hold the color as you smile and eat and laugh throughout the day.
Overall, I highly recommend the Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse if you love multi-tasking, flattering products that stay on for a decent amount of time. Retouching is no trouble at all, so even if you're extremely oily, you don't have to worry. This is easy to apply - just dot on the cheeks then blend it out with a finger. On the lips, swipe it on like you normally use a lip gloss.
