HAPPY SKIN x PLAINS & PRINTS | PRINTS MADE PRETTY

Another year with Happy Skin cosmetics can only get better.  They’ve made way into love month with a fun makeup and style collaboration alongside the brand’s clothing retail partner Plains & Prints.  Imagine a clothing line inspired by a makeup collection, different indeed!  The clothes will be exclusively available via Zalora.com.ph from February 10-17.  This post features the cosmetics, mainly the lippies.  Sorry to say you now must know I felt slightly overcome with nausea and palpitations in the fitting room while fitting clothes at the event.  I even had to ask for a glass of water to be brought to me inside the fitting room, something about too much caffeine.  Just know that with me excess caffeine + crowds + decisions are not a good combination, haha.  There vanished any resolve to shoot OOTDs after.

The makeup collection features our favorite Happy Skin Shut up & Kiss me lippies in two new shades and extremely new glam makeup items never before done by Happy Skin.  I personally took all my photos at the event, flatlay models on the floor included, except for the shot of me above by Ira, a Happy Skin intern who used my camera.    Read on to see me try these out and see the rest of the post.

Half the university knew (I’m kidding, not that many) I was not as addicted to taho as I was addicted to the isaw stands (grilled/barbecued offal) that are now alongside the vacant lot which is a hop, skip, and a jump from the University Arcade, but those super savory isaw stands only open in the afternoon.  However taho for me (steamed bean curd with sweet syrup and pearl)  is still such a comforting sweet treat in the morning, especially a morning like this.  Today my University of the Philippines smelt of trees with sun rays peeking, there were people  running, fallen leaves gripped the moist ground, and a soft, nippy October breeze was blowing…what respite from the smoky chaos that is the city.… To full post & COMMENTS...
