We’re always excited for new product launches, especially when they come from brands we’re already obsessed with. With Happy Skin, we’re always counting down to every fresh drop—after all, they never disappoint. Whether they’re giving us their take on dreamy Disney or artistic collabs with a real life princess, Happy Skin’s designs, shade ranges, and formulas always soar.
So, when their latest lip products made their grand entrance at BeautyMNL HQ, we were all too eager to start swiping and swatching. Turns out, the Lip Mallow Mousse has their most luxurious formula yet. It comes in a velvety, air-whipped texture that feels weightless on the lips, suiting its “mallow” moniker perfectly. It dries down to a soft matte, ultra plush finish, making lips look pillowy soft. It delivers vivid pigment with every swipe, but isn’t so bright or thick that it feels like costume makeup.
Its formula contains skin-soothing marshmallow extract, moisturizing cranberry seed oil, and SPF, so a tube can actually provide real lip care. And unlike other velvet lippies, this one doesn’t feel drying upon application, nor does it get filmy after contact with food or drink. It doesn’t claim to be long-wearing at all, so we didn’t expect it to be—but even when it fades, it doesn’t look awful. One trick we have for this is to apply lip balm over half-painted lips to re-distribute the pigment. Voila, you’ve got yourself a tint!
It comes in 8 universally flattering shades, including old favorites from the Happy Skin catalogue. (Can you really have too many versions of their cult favorite Honeymoon Glow?) We’d say they’re all MLBB-worthy, great for everyday, and perfect for makeup beginners. At P549 a tube, the Happy Skin Lip Mallow Mousse comes at a more-than-reasonable price-point for its quality. If you’re looking to ride the velvet lippie wave, you’ll find few others that do it as well as this. Scroll to see what they look like in action!
