From MLBB lipsticks to health-boosting supplements, these are the products that any beauty and wellness junkie would be lost without.
Sometimes, we can’t help but feel like our best selves when our skin looks absolutely amazing. Be it a luminous glow, an even tone, or simply a shine-free t-zone, seriously—don’t get us started!

And the great thing about that is, there’s no need for genetically perfect skin or an impeccable skincare regimen for it. Nope, we’ll leave that to the incredible base makeup picks that have earned their coveted spots in our (and your!) kikay kits. So here’s a shout out to the bb creams, concealers, foundations, skin tints, and all the other face-tuning goodies you’ve been starry-eyed over for the past year. Perhaps you’ll even find yourself a new favorite off this list.

iWhite Korea BB. Holic (25ml), P179
Available in different sizes.

Bianca, 20: “It doesn’t have that much coverage however it does even out my skin tone. This is perfect for everyday use and for that natural no make up make up look. Fresh lang ganern. I’ve been using this since college and it doesn’t disappoint. The scent is really nice too, and it doesn’t feel heavy on my face, unlike other bb creams and foundations.”

SNAILWHITE CC Cream SPF 50, P995
Maria, 35: “I’ve been using this product for more than a year now and just purchased my 2nd bottle recently. I can really attest that this product works wonders on my very sensitive-acne-prone skin! I do fieldwork everyday and I need a product that not only protects my face, but prevents it from being oily and messy. I don’t do retouches anymore until the end of my shift, even if I’m out in the sun! I love how my skin glows everyday by using it! This is my forever CC cream! 😍”

Maybelline Fit Me Matte Poreless Powder, P349
Kristine: “This powder is giving more expensive brands a run for their money. First, it does give an impression that the skin is poreless. The coverage is light to medium and gives a slight blurring effect. Second, the powder applies flawlessly and does not cake throughout the day. In fact, I think it stays on for more than 8 hours, from the time I leave the house until i get back from the office. Third, it’s cheap and will last a long time. Finally, it’s not heavy on the face. You barely feel you have makeup on so it doesn’t seem like your pores are getting clogged. My skin can still breathe despite the layer of powder on my face. This has always been my favorite drug store brand and they did not disappoint with this.”

Gluta-C Kojic Plus+ Powder, P85
Catsy, 27: “Before i purchased this, I must admit, I was rather apprehensive because of the price. Not that it was expensive but it was because it was fairly cheap, so really, my expectations were rather low but wow was I surprised. This is a wonder product that will leave your skin looking like baby’s skin. It sure made mine look like it. That is really something because my skin is not that great. First of all, my skin’s oily and pigmented. But after putting this on, wow, even my mother and grandmother were impressed. Will definitely buy this product over and over again.”

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind 2-in-1 Concealer+Treatment, P399
Rae, 36: “The best concealer ever!!! Looks like second skin. It blends easily and the shade truly matches my skintone. This can even stand alone without putting on foundation or bb cream. Definitely will purchase again. I have already discredited all my existing concealers for this one. Simply the best!”

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, now on sale at P385 (limited time only)
Heidi, 29: “A personal favorite. It is lightweight, has good coverage, long lasting, as the name says, has a matte finish, and is definitely reasonably priced. I’ve been using this product for more than a year now and I am telling you guys, it is worth the repurchase. Once you put it, you won’t feel like you have anything on, and yet it leaves a nice coverage that will last from morning to night.”

Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact, now on sale at P480 (limited time only)
Earl, 22: “Ang smoooth niya sa face and super nababanguhan ako sa product na ito. Instant fresh look especially sa kagaya ko na hindi nagmemake up at tamang pulbo at liptint lang. May kasama na rin na salamin yung compact and I really love it! Handy dalhin and kasyang kasya sa bulsa ko kaya always ready to go. […] Will buy this again once na naubos yung binili ko.”

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer, P599
Marika, 24: “This is definitely my favorite foundation that I’ve ever used. I personally don’t like putting on too much foundation so I only use half a squirt when using this, but it still perfectly conceals all of my face’s blemishes. It also stays on really well. Even in the humid heat, after several hours it still looks like newly-applied foundation. My face still looks so fresh. It’s a bit more expensive than the products I usually buy, but it’s definitely worth it. In fact, it might be worth more than its price. I highly recommend this!”

Careline Multi Stick, P205
Pitty, 47: “I love this product. So easy to use. So easy to apply. Can be used as concealer or make up or just as a blush. Brighten is just such a natural color. Can hide blemishes and redness. So easy to bring also… To apply, all you need is this and your finger… Just tap tap. Will repurchase again and again. I forgot to mention, it’s not pricey 😍❤️”

Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream, P1,310
Shayne, 19: “Before ordering this I was hesitant because it comes only in one shade. But I still bought it because of the benefits and I am very prone to acne. And violaaa! It fits my skin tone despite having morena skin. I feel like I’m glowing when I’m wearing this, it’s true. Plus, it’s very lightweight. I like to wear this everyday, it’s very natural. Even though it can’t hide my acne scars perfectly, it’s fine with me. This will be my forever bb cream, and I will forever purchase this even if it’s pricey because the money is very worth it.”

L’Oreal Paris True Match The One Liquid Concealer, P350
Grazz: “This has got to be, hands down, one of the best concealers I’ve ever used! The consistency of the product is just right, and can be easily blended. It doesn’t feel doughy and it’s really easy to work with. It feels light on the skin while giving you great coverage as well. The packaging is really cute and handy for people who are always on the go like me! It works wonders for the dark circles under my eyes, I’d recommend this to all the night owls out there. ❤️”

Face Republic Perfect Cover BB Cream (40ml), P599
Available in different sizes.

Leoven, 25: “I tried the sachet first, maybe naka ubos ako ng 3 sachets neto para matest talaga sya. If you like the dewy makeup look, like your skin to look healthy padin, and you need to wear make up everyday like me, use this bb cream. I need it for my job and I highly recommend to use bb cream instead of foundation for an everyday look. Holy grail to sakin! Nahiyang ako sa kanya but if you have super oily skin like me, after bb cream you can apply setting powder after para di ka mag oil up ng bongga! Good for morena skin like me 😊”

PRO STUDIO Beauty Exclusives Makeup Setting Spray (30mL), now on sale at P249 (limited time only)
Available in different sizes.

Aryanna, 24: “This product is awesome! I have never used setting spray before but decided to try this one because, it’s cheap and has great reviews. I always had problems with my make up melting and smudging because of my oily skin but this product… WOW! I used it for the first time when I was a bridesmaid at my cousin’s wedding and it helped my makeup look fresh all day! Honestly, I didn’t need to retouch even once. I went home looking the same way I did when I left 12 hours before. Super recommend!”

Dermacol Makeup Cover, now on sale at P959 (limited time only)
Queen, 20: “2 years ago, I suffered with breakout and I looked for a full coverage foundation to hide it. It really works wonders! Perfect for concealing scars and pimples. What’s good in this product is that it has spf 30 and is waterproof! It also has a matte-y finish so it is okay if you do not use any powder for it. Bought this last 2018 and the shelf life of this product is one of a kind. It will expire on 2021! It is a great deal since you only need a pea sized amount for your whole face. Definitely worth the price! […]”

Heimish Artless Glow Base SPF50+ PA+++, P824
Dennise: “I have been eyeing this for the longest time. I finally decided to buy it in preparation for some events a couple of weeks ago. And, my goodness, I love it! I usually mix this with my sunscreen. And whenever there is any excess, I use it in place of highlighter. I am just amazed with how this product makes me look so healthy and alive. It just gives the right amount of glow and dewyness. There are even days when I skip most of my face makeup like blush and highlight whenever I use this. It’s just that great!”

Eres Tu Peptide Special BB Cream, P429
Clendelle, 22: “The reviews weren’t kidding! This BB cream is amazing and glides well on my skin. I particularly love how the ingredients make it look like I can use it as an extension of my skincare routine since it contains a lot of of good peptides and anti-bacterial properties. It is so lightweight despite giving medium to full coverage on my face and doesn’t feel heavy or cakey at all after long hours of wear. […] I’m just really happy with this one since it gives off a really nice touch of glow on my skin and makes my face feel healthy. Best BB cream I’ve ever tried and will be a staple on my vanity kit!”

Pixi by Petra H2O Skintint, P1,295
Cristine, 19: “I don’t know if it’s because my skin is now on the normal side, but this is the BEST. I mean the BEST tint ever. My first tint purchase and I love it. Moneys worth. Looks like skin and doesn’t look like you applied anything. I can mix this with oils or Mac face strobe to look more dewy! It stays on my face and doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything at all! Transfer proof!!! What more could you want?! 💖”

Revlon ColorStay Makeup, P825
Lorenn, 26: “I’m working in a fast food resto for 10hrs/day. I must say this product never fails to amaze me since day one! I only have to retouch during my break time. And after that, voila! Fresh na fresh pa rin! Parang bagong duty lang! 😊. Super recommended especially sa oily skin like me.”

Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Loose Mineral Concealer & Foundation Refill, P599
April, 23: “Been using this product for a year and there’s really no turning back to liquid foundations! I love how one layer can easily hide my acne marks. The coverage is really amazing. This can last up to 6 months, is perfect for my oily skin which lessens blotting time everyday, has SPF, and is cruelty-free. Worth every penny, I must say! If you’re looking for a sign, this is it. […]”
