Store Interior Goals

Happy Friday! This time two weeks ago I was kindly invited to the new Happy Skin store that opened up in Alabang Town Center. You'll always find me shopping at that mall since its a 15 minute drive from my place so when I saw they were opening one up I jumped with joy. That meant I didn't have to drive to their Makati store and fight the traffic and I didn't have to guess the shades online anymore. I can just drop buy and shop happiness without any fuss. I love that all my favorite brands have stores in one mall and I can just go all out on my beauty shopping now. So today I wanted to give you a little tour of their new store which is honestly #interiorgoals and show you a few products in their new collection. I suggest you prepare for all the pretty pictures of the store and products.


As soon as you walk in you are in a makeup haven and as I said the interior is indescribable and just the most aesthetically pleasing thing you will see when you enter a store. Their color scheme is so me as well like the teal, light pink, hot pink and gold incorporated through the design. I know their other branches follow the same theme and match so well with their products packaging which you will see in a bit. That right there just sold me on their stuff the first time I laid eyes on it. Of course appearance isn't everything to look out for but they do both outstandingly which I have to give it up for them because some brands only focus on the outside and not the inside but not them they do both. There are different sections you walk to and see what is on displayed. They recommend their new stuff or what is award winning and of course there best selling items. Then they just categorize it by the type of makeup so you just go over to 


They have so many good products they brought out and many collaborations as well. A lot of the sections are separated into different sections for their collections. They have their Festival of Colors collection, their Makeup Artist Glam collection and collaborations with celebrities all in these little cubicles that you can peruse. There is a Disney collection which is the most amazing thing. If you know me I am a very big fan of Disney and most specifically the princesses. They came out with a Disney Princess range featuring lippies, powders and more. I'm totally going to go back and get the Limited Edition Beauty and Beast Lip Kit which has a liquid lipstick and matching lip liner in a tin case as it is a gorgeous color and such a keepsake. The best part is we got to preview their new collection there that was going to be released the next day so we got a little sneak peek. I'll show you more in the haul portion in a separate blog post coming soon!


In the middle you will find all their items you can test out. You can pop them out of their acrylic display and go swatch crazy. As you see in the picture I was just getting started when I took the picture. By the end I had no room left on my hand that I went up my inner arm which quickly filled up to. They have makeup remover and cotton pads if you need to take it off so you wont have to explain to people why you have an embarrassing amount of makeup all over your hand and up your arm. It will make the conversation less awkward I hope. There are just so many things to swatch so be prepared. They have testers for pretty much all of their products whether it is lips, eyeliner, eyeshadow and much much more.


There are so many fun little details within the store. They have marble counter tops and white cabinets to store their products. Above you can see these rose gold/copper lights that add a fun touch instead of just the standard lights alone. There is a hot pink statement while and a pattern wall on the other side. The best part of the store is their vanity on both sides of the store. There are chairs by the vanity to really sit and do your makeup and the Hollywood style light mirror really helps. It is so glamorous and now I really want something like that in my future apartment. Honestly I want this whole store in my apartment; makeup and all! You have ottomans in the color theme and to match the upholstery of the chairs as well. Everything is so thought out and i have to give props to the owners for such a cool design aspect to really give their brand an above and beyond concept. I took my younger cousin to the event as I was taking her to another event. I loved seeing her explore beauty for the first time and see what I do. She was my photographer for the day and my blogging assistant which she thought was the coolest job. I offered if she wanted to have a permanent position and she agreed right away after the day she had. Maybe I can use her to help with my content. I offered her something from the store as a token for helping me out and being my partner in crime especially since I'm so shy going to events like this. It helps bringing a friend or relative to be your buffer even though she was even shyer than I was. In the end it turned out okay and we both enjoyed the store and what they offer.


Last thing which is probably the most exciting is the haul portion. I was kind enough to be given a gift certificate from the store as a blogger press release. It was my first time and honestly this made my year as a blogger. The opportunity was amazing and being offered a shopping spree to their products is a dream come true. I picked up a few things I had on my wish list and some new bits I found interesting while there. The staff was super friendly and explained everything so well to us. With the place being a bit busy with the blogger press day the ladies were juggling all of us but in the end they brought over the products. They are so thorough and open the products in front of you to make sure you don't get a damaged good and makes sure you get the right shade. It took me forever to choose but they were so patient and got everything from the stock room for me.  


That is it and I hope you enjoyed and found this store tour and review helpful in case you plan on stopping by and shopping at Happy Skin. They are located in the Alabang Town Center Mall on the GF, New Wing in front of Fab Manila. I'll be putting my haul of what I got that day soon so you'll be able to see that and pieces from their new collection. You can follow them on Twitter, Instagram and like on Facebook. You can also shop on their website which do international shipping for all my international readers. As well as Zalora PH and more recently they are now available at Beauty MNL. I'm so excited that I have a store close by now and it might be very dangerous to my wallet but at least I'll have all the makeup. I should go now but I do hope you spend your weekend shopping or window shopping like I should be. Have a lovely weekend loves!

Disclaimer: I was invited to the Happy Skin press day for their newly opened ATC branch. I was given a gift certificate to shop their store. I am in no way paid to write this blog post but I was given something in return to visit their store. Their gift no way persuaded my opinion in any way for this blog post.
