Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy the illusion of good skin—and that’s close enough for us. For this week’s Splurge vs. Save, take a look at the indispensable fix for your uneven complexion: a liquid foundation. Finding your skin-perfecting match should be a beauty junkie’s top priority. Just a few dabs over problematic areas can go a long way—and you can always layer the coverage for special events. Our picks below!

SPLURGE: Dior Diorsnow White Reveal Fresh Transparency Liquid Foundation, P3,520 For a designer investment, the Diorsnow White Reveal Fresh Transparency Liquid Foundation SPF30 is a true Holy Grail find. Infused with Icelandic glacial water, this brightening formula blurs imperfections for a soft, luminous glow. The air-whipped texture also provides weightless coverage that won’t budge all day. Expensive? Yes. But with Dior, you get more than just your average base.

SAVE: L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation, P600 When it comes to drugstore foundations, L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation is a world fave. This silky formula gives even the best designer foundations a run for their money, with a wide range of skin-like shades. The best part: these shades automatically adapt to your own color and texture. At only P600, this is a staple we’d actually pay more for!

STEAL: Wet n’ Wild Coverall Cream Foundation, P399 Rounding out the list is a foundation from our go-to budget brand. The Coverall Cream Foundation comes in a fairly simple tube, but don’t be fooled! The product inside is much more polished than it appears. Its lightweight consistency melts into skin, and the semi-matte finish creates a radiant, shine-free effect that’s great for every day. Moral of the story: never judge a product by its packaging.
