Besides #EyebrowsOnFleek, every Filipina wants flawless, spot-free skin—including us! Honestly, if we had to choose, the one beauty product we’d take with us to a deserted island is concealer. So for this week’s Splurge vs. Save, we’re thrusting our favorite blemish-busting tubes in the spotlight.
Not everybody is blessed with the perfect complexion—but thanks to the power of makeup, we can always cheat our way there! A good liquid formula should blend like a dream, camouflage imperfections, and brighten the dull, dark areas of your face. It’s an all-in-one solution to all our skin woes. So without further ado, here are our picks!

SPLURGE: NARS Cosmetics Radiant Creamy Concealer, P1,550
Like most NARS products, this high-end concealer is hunted down by makeup pros and amateurs all over the world. Dark circles and blemishes don’t stand a chance against this formula’s luxurious texture, luminous finish, buildable coverage, and light-diffusing properties. Besides its skin-perfecting powers, it also boasts of multi-action benefits, like anti-aging botanicals and antioxidants, for a visibly smoother and seamless complexion. Never mind the hefty price tag—this HG formula is basically flawless skin in a tube.

SAVE: Maybelline Pure Mineral Concealer, P399
If you’re on a quest for an affordable, everyday coverup, the search is officially over! Maybelline’s Pure Mineral Concealer has long been a go-to for budget-conscious makeup kits. Its micro-mineral formula is gentle on the skin, non-comedogenic, and perfectly opaque when swiped over imperfections. This concealer is great for hiding spots, and the no-cake-and-flake formula corrects dark circles and dull patches just as well. For only P399, this drugstore find is certainly a delight.

SUPER-SAVE: Wet n’ Wild Coverall Liquid Concealer, P299
Now, if you’re on a really tight budget, you always have Wet n’ Wild. The brand’s Coverall Liquid Concealer costs P100 less than Maybelline’s but delivers the same heavy-duty coverage. Its creamy, color-correcting formula coats blemishes, blurs fine lines, and provides a silky finish that stays put all day. In short, this teensy little tube packs a punch that’s worth way more than its price tag.
