Ever wonder what lipstick color you should wear? Research has shown that people often match their lipstick color to their personality so we’ve come up with this super fun quiz to tell you what your personality type and your perfect lipstick combo should be! Try it!
ColorMeHappy was conceived over drinks by two friends, Christine and Louisa, who believe that cosmetics, in particular lip colour cosmetics, have the power to bring colour into and brighten up a girl’s life. The overall look and name is inspired by being fun and happy, hence the name “ColorMeHappy”. After all, getting a fun “little box of happy” delivered in the mail is the treat all ladies deserve!
As non-regular but enthusiastic makeup users, Christine and Louisa both agree that one thing they cannot live without is lipstick. This started the journey to find the perfect lipstick – the shades, the colors, the textures. They decided to develop a range of high quality but reasonably priced Korean lipsticks, available online so that it can be conveniently delivered to anyone’s doorstep within a few clicks, to encourage busy women to step out of their comfort zones and try a different shade or product more regularly.
Bringing Korean cosmetics to Singapore
Christine and Louisa researched deeply into the Korean market landscape to understand the magic behind Korean cosmetics, so that they could bring in the best to Singapore.
The R&D process took 6 months, followed by comprehensive testing at an independent laboratory in Hong Kong. The two ladies researched on the various lipstick shades, wanting to arrive at a collection that will do justice to Asian skin and fashion. They also wanted to replicate the kind of care that went into skin from the Korean skincare industry to lipcare. Thus the products were extensively tested for high quality and safety standards according to the ASEAN Cosmetic Regulations (similar to FDA requirements)
The end result: a range of products are formulated using Korean technology and ingredients:
Boldlicious HD is the limited edition line of Korean high-definition lipsticks — with highly pigmented colors in bright and bold shades. Designed to give maximum color impact in one swipe, this is ideal for a woman wants to make a bold statement with how she looks.
XPrecision Lips is the line of Korean lipsticks with Light-Diffuse technology, specially formulated to give the just right level of shine. Not too shiny, not too matte – XPrecision lipsticks are designed to hide your lip imperfections so all you see is the right shade of lipstick color.
ColorMeHappy also has a line of Lip Perfectors – in particular the Lip Night Repair Oil – an oil based product that you rub on your lips before you sleep. It smooths and softens your lips through the night – so you wake up with amazing lips. Other lip perfector products include Lip Brighteners, Lip Shimmers and Lip Contours.
Loved by Makeup Artists
Despite being a new brand in a highly competitive space, every makeup artist that has tried ColorMeHappy lipsticks has loved using its lip products. In fact, ColorMeHappy has eleven makeup artist ambassadors endorsing the brand including well-known names like:
Stella Leung – a HK born, London trained Singapore makeup artist

If you’ve ever walked into any drugstore, the makeup section of a supermarket, or – good luck to you – Sephora, you would know that there is a mind-boggling plethora of lipsticks out on the market right now. If you’re a makeup junkie like we are, we totally get that age-old dilemma of owning too many lipsticks but never quite the right lipstick colour for certain moods or occasions.
That same dilemma is also the reason why we couldn’t believe our ears when we found out that this Korea-made brand have begun selling curated boxes specially selected by renowned local makeup artists.
Each of these makeup artists have had years of experience behind them, so we’re going to believe them when they tell us which colours are the best in creating certain moods or looks. The Color Me Happy Boldlicious HD and XPrecision Lips are available for sale individually on the Color Me Happy website, but retail at SGD 20 each, so this month’s special price of two lipsticks for SGD 30 (or a lipsticks + lipliner for SGD 25) for each lippie box curated by a renowned local makeup artist is a steal.
What look are you going for?
Elegant and feminine
The Cleo Chang Box
Chances are, you’ve probably heard of Cleo Chang. She is the one of the most well-known bridal makeup artists in Singapore, and constantly receives accolades for her work. It is no surprise, then, that her curated lippie box aims to create a look that combines comfortable confidence and demure elegance.
Above, Cleo wears her chosen Lip Contour in Fuchsia Explosion to create flawless definition around her lips, and filling it in with the XPrecision Lips Summer Blush.

Prim and classic
The Jinnie Lee Box
Locally based Korean makeup artist Jinnie Lee has long been a great fan of Color Me Happy. She is the registered makeup artist at Leekaja Salon, and she specialises in doing makeup for weddings and fashion shows.
Despite her capacity to do stage-ready makeup, Jinnie has chosen the most classic combination for her box. She included the Color Me Happy Lip Night Repair Oil, because your lips can’t show off if they aren’t well hydrated and healthy to begin with. Top it off with the Boldlicious HD Reddest Rose lipstick, and you’ve got the most classic red lip that cannot go wrong.

Mysterious and alluring
The Shirley Tan Box
Contrary to popular belief, Asian women can also pull off sultry looks as well. We think that these two lipsticks curated by local makeup artist Shirley Tan will create lips that are understated, yet attention-grabbing at the same time. See how Shirley’s top picks look on Color Me Happy models, Vivianne and Li Houng, below.
Having trained in the beauty centrals of Asia, Taiwan and Korea, local makeup artist Shirley Tan is more than qualified to tell us what lipsticks would flatter our Asian skintones the most. The shades she has chosen are Color Me Happy Boldlicious HD in Deep Choco (left model), a deep-red tinged with chocolate, and the Color Me Happy XPrecision Lips Subtle Mocha (right model), a slightly lighter warm nude shade to complement.

We love to take inspiration from Korean makeup trends, which we know are the hottest looks of the moment. And in particular, Korean lip looks are our #makeupgoals, and we can’t get enough of them.
To help us figure out which ones are going to work well on us, we ask Jinnie Lee, Korean makeup artist who is now based in Singapore, and has a clientele that makes up of Korean and Singaporean women, including Singaporean beauty queens, to share with us the best ones to go for.
Jinnie is also the brand ambassador for ColorMeHappy, a Korean lipstick brand that uses Korean technology in the formula of their products. Known for their affordable prices (SGD20 for a quality lipstick!) and popularity among makeup artists, ColorMeHappy snagged Jinnie as their ambassador after she fell in love with their lip products.
“I like that the lip products from ColorMeHappy has just the right amount of shine. For example, the XPrecision lipsticks are not too matte nor too shiny, and are perfect to help blur lip imperfections to achieve a smooth-looking shine.
The lipstick-lover and expert shares that her three go-to Korean lip looks are:
1. Classic red lips
2. Natural lips
3. Ombre lips
According to Jinnie, these are popular looks seen on celebrities in Korean dramas, which are a source of inspiration for Korean women. Thankfully, they aren’t difficult to recreate given the right tools and techniques.
Read on for her tips and the looks she has created on ColorMeHappy’s founder and director, Ms. Louisa Ch’ng as her model.
1. Classic red lips
“The classic red lips look is one of Korean makeup basics. It gained popularity because Choi Ji Woo famously sported it in Winter Sonata and Stairway to Heaven,” Jinnie shares.
How to achieve classic red lips look:
1. Conceal your natural lip line using your favourite foundation
2. Use the ColorMeHappy Lip Contour Pencil in the same colour as the lipstick you are using to define the shape of your lips.
3. Fill out your lips with the same lip pencil.
4. Swipe on a red lipstick at the inner half of your lips. For a bona fide Korean look, try ColorMeHappy Boldlicious HD in Reddest Rose for a deep red look, or Boldlicious HD in Deep Choco, a dark chocolate-red look that appears sultry. For something that looks lighter, consider the ColorMeHappy XPrecision in Glam Red.
5. Optional: Spread the lip colour from the inner half of your lips out to the edge of your lips with a lip brush, for a gorgeous-looking gradient.
2. Natural lips
The no-lipstick look, which usually features a pink or nude lip colour, is another of Jinnie’s favourite Korean lip looks. “Korean makeup focuses a lot on creating a natural look, so it’s no surprise this is one of the most well-loved looks. It is also Park Shin Hye’s signature look when she first debuted,” says Jinnie,
“You’ll also see Han Ga-In wearing this look in period drama Moon Embracing the Sun, and it’s one of the most popular lip looks you’ll see in Korean commercials,” she adds.
How to achieve natural lips look:
1. Apply foundation to conceal your natural lip line, as well as your entire lips to conceal your natural lip colour. This technique will allow the true colour of the lipstick to show up better.
2. Choose a lipstick shade that’s closest to your natural lip colour. ColorMeHappy XPrecision in Pink Ice is one of my favourites because it adds a subtle glow to your lips while still keeping it looking natural. Alternatively, you can consider ColorMeHappy XPrecision in Subtle Mocha, a slightly darker shade that’s still close to the natural lip colour, but gives it a more sophisticated touch.
3. To add an oomph to the natural look, add the ColorMeHappy Lip Brightener in Pink Hint or Red Mist on top of your lipstick, for that gorgeous glowing look that feels moisturising, sans stickiness. The Lip Brightener is a great product to help fight humid weather.
3. Ombre lips
“This is a unique look that originated from Korea. Many Korean girls like it because it hints at innocence, but also oozes sexiness. Ombre lips are seen on Yoon Eun Hye is popular drama I Miss You, and was much talked-about when Han Ji Min showed off gorgeous-looking gradient lips in a shoot with Elle Korea,” Jinnie says.
How to achieve ombre lips look:
1. Just like the natural look, I recommend using a foundation to conceal your natural lip line and lip colour.
2. Choose a nude-base lipstick, but do so with caution, or you may look odd. My favourite nude-base lipsticks are the ColorMeHappy XPrecision in Pink Ice and in Nude Beauty. They’re natural-looking and can never go wrong.
3. Apply the stronger lip colour with a lip brush in three lines, at the inner half of your lips: starting with the centre and a line each on the side.
4. With just the lip brush, feather the colour evenly across the lips.
5. To make your lips look juicier, apply the ColorMeHappy Lip Bronzer for a metallic shine.
Recommended lipsticks that will work well on anyone?
If you’re new to lipsticks or have been looking for a lipstick that will work in any occasion, Jinnie recommends the ColorMeHappy XPrecision in Subtle Mocha.
“This is a very versatile colour that is closest to the natural lip colour, but make it look more sophisticated. My clients tell me that it’s a shade that they can take from office to shopping, and then straight to a dinner!”
But if you’re looking for a bolder look, Jinnie says XPrecision in Glam Red is another of her favourite, and explains, “I have seen it work well on women with a variety of skin tones, brightening up their faces instantly. It’s also a true red shade that everyone should have in their makeup stash!”
ColorMeHappy products are available exclusively on their online store, at affordable prices – SGD20 for a lipstick, and SGD15 for a lip liner.
