Oh, what we wouldn’t give for the skin of a newborn baby—or at least, a beauty filter that would simulate the effect beyond the camera. But while a walk-around Photoshop finish will probably take years to develop, there’s always concealer. Below, discover the camouflage creams that our customers have found particularly effective, whether you’re dealing with pimple marks, ashy under-eyes, or random redness.

NYX Concealer Jar, P360
Trish, Fair, Normal Skin: “I am seriously seriously in love with this, and I think this is one of NYX’s most underrated products. Full coverage really covers EVERYTHING, even the most disgusting of zits, spots, or blemishes. It stays on all day. I ended up using this more than Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage (I think they serve similar purposes). Would not recommend this for the undereye area though, because it ends up cake-y. Otherwise, AMAZING!”

NYX Dark Circle Concealer, P390
Rizza, Medium, Oily Skin: “Love the coverage on this one! I have dark under-eye circles and have used several eye brighteners (drug store and high-end) from the past. NYX’s Dark Circle Concealer has been the most effective one in doing the job. It gets rid of the darkness with just some minimal dabs on the affected area. I also like that there is some type of moisturizer added in as it helps keep the area under my eyes soft and supple. This is a great addition in your makeup bag!”

Suesh Concealer & Corrector Pots, on sale at P100 each
Kenza, Fair, Oily Skin: “Being one of those typical females that would like to try different (recommended) concealers in order to cover that hideous dark spots, I must say that this product does the job! It really does cover the unwanted spots on my face. I’ve actually used tons of concealers but most of them are either too cakey or it just doesn’t blend well, which is annoying in my case. Every review that you read about this product is so true! I highly recommend it.”
Paoline, Medium, Combination Skin: “It’s creamy and I like how it feels on my skin—not too heavy but not too sheer either. I usually use the green one to cover some redness around my nose and my mouth, when foundation alone can’t cover that. The red one, I really love for covering the veins on my eyelids and on my cheeks. And it really does mattify my dark circles. The yellow one brightens my under eyes. For the price, I’d say this is worth it!”

Lioele Perfect Jumbo Concealer, P450
Luz, Fair, Combination Skin: “This product does a wonderful job for dark spots and under-eye circles. It’s so easy to blend whether you use it with brush, sponge or finger. It doesn’t come off easily since its a cream-based type. It only has one shade and it’s perfect for fair skin. Needless to say it’s worth your money and it comes in a cute packaging!”

Pink Sugar Our Lil’ Secret Concealer, P299
Glennda, Oily Skin: “With several concealers that I had tried, Our Lil Secret Concealers works better on me. I have an oily skin. I love its texture, easily dried up with just a small amount it can already covers all blemishes, dark spots and even my pimple marks. It really works on my face so perfectly and very natural without looking so cakey. Good pick for me!”
Justine, Medium, Combination Skin: “Bought this for the first time and I can’t believe how wonderful this concealer is! It’s full coverage so a little definitely goes a long way. It takes a while for my skin to recover from pimple scars so this concealer really makes sure that it can’t be seen :) If any of you have the same dilemma, I suggest buying this asap to cover those unwanted dots!”

Maybelline Pure Mineral Concealer, P399
Toni, Fair, Oily Skin: “One of my holy grail drugstore concealers. This stuff covers undereye bags like no other. It’s full coverage, long wearing, doesn’t crease too much, and looks natural. I find that it fades after 5-6 hours but that’s probably because I have super oily skin. Nonetheless, this concealer does the job! I love it!”

Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate, P890
Marla, Deep, Combination Skin: “I’ve been struggling with dark circles under my eyes for years, and no concealer ever quite seemed to do the trick. This tiny product produces big results—just a few dots under your eyes and you instantly look refreshed, well-rested, and younger. It just brightens up your whole face. Now I seriously can’t imagine life without it! It’s a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way so it should last you longer than you expect, and is definitely worth every penny.”

Holika Holika Cover & Hiding Liquid Concealer, P275
Lizbelle, Medium, Combination Skin: “I am satisfied with this concealer. You see, I have a bad case of acne and I have high expectations for my concealers. For the price, this is already very good and natural beige is the perfect shade for my complexion. Application and blending is really easy as this disappears in my skin, covering my imperfections easily. It dries to matte which is perfect for my oily skin. Will repurchase!”

Aritaum Full Cover Stick Concealer, P475
Rubie, Fair, Normal Skin: “I like this product, it does wonders for covering acne/marks/pigment issues. Will repurchase this. It’s insanely pigmented, doesn’t separate in tube, a little goes a long way, stays on ALL DAY, gives fabulous coverage, and isn’t tacky or dries up on skin like patches. Only con I think [of] is that it has limited available shades.”

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit, P2,200
Tracy, Combination Skin: “The best concealer ever made! Pricey but definitely worth it. You will not regret on this one. Holy grail product. I’ve tried sooo many concealers…this is the BEST one ever! I’m so happy I’ve finally found an awesome concealer! Works PERFECTLY for under eye darkness, circles, and covering up veins. This concealer does NOT settle into fine lines or creases. I can’t believe it hasn’t gotten more ratings!”
