Long before alphabet creams dominated the scene, there was mineral makeup. Today, it might be sorely overlooked, but this skincare-slash-makeup hybrid puts fancier products to shame. Take our favorite example: mineral concealer.
Made with ultra-natural pigments, this type of skin-corrector offers weightless coverage and never puts you at risk of zits. It’s so pure, in fact, that you could break the No. 1 skincare rule and sleep with it on. Seriously! Below, we review two marvelous mineral concealers by V&M Naturals.
SPLURGE: V&M Mineral Concealer, P1,220
This silky powder has a feathery finish and offers light coverage, although it does build up to a nice medium. The secret is in the finely-milled pigments. You can layer them up until you achieve your desired coverage, and the concealer won’t cake or settle into fine lines. Most importantly, it minimizes any type of blemish. Just stipple it over acne scars or sweep it on top of eyebags for a brighter, clearer look.

SAVE: V&M Mineral Corrector/Concealer, P310
Battling red patches or bluish undereyes? Improve unsightly undertones with these color-correcting powders. To counteract discoloration, sweep the shade Cognito over your problem areas. This mint green cancels out any hint of angry red. Then, to conceal dark circles, apply Eye Brightener over your lids and under-eyes. This yellow-beige eliminates gray tones and illuminates you. At only P310, you might as well cop one of each!

What’s your pick: the all-over powder or the bite-sized correctors?
