These Local Beauty Brands Just Created The Best Secret Weapons Of Summer For Less Than P1000

*Cue Hannah Montana's Best of Both Worlds*

Part skincare, part makeup. Anyone else care to join the party?

Now that we’re in Lockdown Season 2, which is literally a re-run of Season 1, most of us may be hoarding and stocking up on essential products while some are doubling down. This also applies to being more careful in the face department. Skincare and makeup are two different things, and each have different needs. Meaning, it’s twice the ₱₱₱, since it’s like buying two expansion packs. But thanks to technology, we have these skincare and makeup hybrids that have been our secret weapon.

ISSY AND CO.’s ACTIVE SKIN TINT

With a six-shade range from light to deep brown, Issy and Co. just came out with the cult product for summer—the Active Skin Tint. Not only does it substitute for BB cream and foundation (plus, it’s non-oily), but it also protects your skin from the sun with SPF. ☀️

WHERE TO GET IT: Lazada, Beauty MNL

HAPPY SKIN’S COOLING COLOR ADAPT STICK

As one of the pioneers of “skin-caring makeup,” it just makes sense that Happy Skin would come out with this holy grail: the Cooling Color Adapt Stick. It’s a heat-resistant multipurpose product that adds a dewy, hydrating finish and a rosy tint on your cheeks, all thanks to an ingredient called hyaluronic acid which improves dry and dehydrated for all skin types.

BLK COSMETICS’ WONDERMELON LIP TREATMENT OIL

Remember when you accidentally ate your first lip balm/gloss as an adolescent just cause it smells and tastes good? Same, that’s how we feel with BLK Cosmetics’ Lip Treatment Oil from their current Wondermelon collection. The fruity formula literally has watermelon seed oil and Vitamin E that leaves a moisturized pout.

CLOCHE FLAME’S ALL AROUND FLUSH

A multi-use pigmented product that you can use for the eyes, cheeks and lips. If your skin prefers gel or mousse, newcomer Clocheflame’s All Around Flush has nourishing ingredients such as collagen for hydration, grapeseed oil, and antioxidant Vitamin E.

Serum blush should be the new format in cosmetics. There are times when powder just cakes up and congests the pores in your face, causing breakouts. Thankfully, Hello Bloom Beauty’s Future Blush is a gift from the gods to those who have dry skin. Not convinced? Well, there’s a whole lot of aloe vera, niacinamide, and allantoin that keeps us constantly flushed.

PRICE: P195

ELLANA MINERALS’ MULTI-MIST
