Hello! It’s been a while since I posted something here on my blog! 🙂 After accomplishing loads of college requirements and papers, it feels so good to write again.
Anyway, I purchased two lippies online because I was too lazy to visit my favorite store to look for beauty essentials. XD Not really a fan of buying lippies online because I’m afraid to receive the wrong shade and won’t be able to exchange it.
So I tried to look for some reliable beauty stores online and after reading some reviews, BeautyMNL and Happy Skin was on my top picks and gave them a try.
The shade that I bought from Happy Skin is the Honeymoon Glow see the pictures below:
I really love their packaging because it’s so cute and it’s easy to twist. This lippie is blendable and glides smoothly into my lips and I can really feel its moisturizing effect because unlike other matte lippies, it does not feel dry and rough when applied.
The shade of lippie that I bought from BeautyMNL is the Birthday Suit by Pink Sugar. This one is my favorite because the color suits my skin and is not too pigmented. But what I don’t like about this product is, it’s not easy to blend and does not glide smoothly when applied. I have to use my fingers to blend the product into my lips. Plus the packaging is not that good because I can twist it even the cap is on so it ended up smudging the lipstick a bit. That’s what happened in the photo below.
Here is the swatch I made. They don’t have a huge difference because their shades are quite similar. The Honeymoon Glow is just a little bit pinkish than Birthday Suit’s apricot-like shade.
I applied it and you can barely see the difference.

I both love the product. But of course, there’s always one who will stand out. And it’s the Birthday Suit for me. I just love how the shade suits me and looks so natural. Plus it’s more affordable than the Happy Skin’s Honeymoon Glow.
Thank you for reading! 💕
