SM Beauty celebrates International Lipstick Day

30 July 2015

How happy am I? As happy as someone who just got FIVE new lipsticks! o (^‿^✿)

In celebration of yesterday's International Lipstick Day, SM Beauty held an SM Lipstick Fest at all SM Stores nationwide and offered up to 50% off our favorite lipstick brands! I went positively loco over the myriad of choices available!

Hello, I am Krissy, and I am addicted to lipsticks
HEART EYES EMOJI TIMES TEN THOUSAND
(And it's not even because of this pap photo of Martine Cajucom LOL)
Whatever formulation and finish you're looking for and however controlled or outrageous your lipstick-shopping budget is, you're bound to find a tube (or two, or five, or twenty) in SM Beauty. Drugstore, masstige (portmanteau of mass and prestige), and high-end brands can be found here and it was so much fun going around the racks, ooh-ing and aah-ing at all those gorgeous shades!

The brand I made a beeline for was Happy Skin because I have been wanting to try their products for the longest time but have never gotten a chance to purchase.

An explosion of beautiful colors
These are all swatches of Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies
See anything you like?
Aside from flitting from one kiosk to another, I also joined the Lip Art Challenge with the help of SA Jessa from Happy Skin.

Couldn't decide which one to try so I slapped on all three. Now shut up and kiss me.
The Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies used for my lipfie:
Just Married, Hot Stuff, and 24 Carats
You can also create your own lip art and post a lipfie on Instagram to win a special prize! Just don't forget to tag @SMWomanPH and include the hashtag #SMLipfie. Good luck!

I got to see a lot of pretty and familiar faces at the event. It made me realize how much I missed attending events that I didn't help organize through my work! ( ⋂‿⋂’)

Would you like to know what I ended up taking home? Of course you do!

I honestly didn't want to leave the Happy Skin booth. Huhu I want to get all colors! I had to choose the best of the best though, so I got these:

Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies in Honeymoon Glow, Naughty and Nice, and Girls Night Out
Too bad they were being sold at the regular price of P549 (Honeymoon Glow and Girls Night Out) and P599 (Naughty and Nice). The only promo for Happy Skin lipstick buyers is a free GWP: a pretty pouch for every two lippies you get, Not bad, yes?

Lipsticks are one of my top favorite things in the world (I wanted this blog's slogan to be Peace, Love, & Lipstick but it didn't quite have the same impact and panache as Peace, Love, & Lip gloss, heh). I was spoilt for choice but I couldn't possibly buy everything, so in the end I had to whittle down my picks to four. Just as I chose my fourth tube (Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Divine), the SA tempted me with my fifth (Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Spellbound). They were being sold at only P200 each! Okay I kinda regret not getting more as gifts to my girl friends.

So, yes. How happy am I?
RIDONKULOUSLY HAPPY!
I wonder how many lifetimes it would take to finish this giant lipstick and this humongous gloss
The International Lipstick Day might have ended, but you can still get red-hot deals at all SM Beauty branches in SM Stores nationwide until August 26! Of course I'm happy about this, but my wallet is not exactly thrilled, heh. If you're coming, I highly recommend that you drop by Happy Skin, Cover Girl, Max Factor, and L'Oreal.

On a bad day, there's always lipstick. Treat these lipsticks as the future cure for those persistently bad days. (^_~)☆
