FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: Top 4 Good But Very Affordable Concealers
Whoops! Late Fan Mail Fridays post! Because the better part of my day was spent on the busy streets, beating traffic from Q.C. for a meeting, to Makati for a quick boxing session, to Manila to drop off my mom in a party, and now I'm home. Whew! Wasn't even able to check my email the whole day today!
This sweet message (plus a query) is from one of my young readers, L.A.:
I'm L.A, and I'm 16 years old. I'm a make up lover and I love using it, andmaking different looks, even though they said I'm too young for make ups :(I'm your reader for a long time. I love reading your blog supeeer! ♥
Anw, I just want to ask if you can suggest a concealer that is affordable orshould I say that can be bought in drugstore/watsons (am I right?) because I'm
just a student and I'm on a budget. Hihi. :) Also, one that is good for my skinand age because I have sensitive skin. I have tried some concealers andyet I get easily irritated and have result a redness on my face. -.- I hopeyou can help me ate! :( I'm one your admirers aAe Martha! And hoping that I
can meet you soon. ♥♥ More blessings ate!
Love,L.A :) ♥
Hello sweetie! Thank you for being a reader! I guess there's really no right age to start using makeup as long as you use what you only need and the right products for you! So go ahead, have fun with makeup! :)
Anyway! Hmmm...it's hard to recommend products to people with hypersensitive skin because they get irritations easily. (Unless they wanna risk it) To be safe, I'd suggest you go for hypoallergenic and allergy- tested products such as VMV Hypoallergenics and Clinique, although they're a lil' pricey for students. Another option would be Mineral Makeup. There are drugstore products that have mineral makeup lines such as Maybelline and Covergirl, so please check 'em out. :)
Here's my list of affordable makeup concealers that work so nice, you couldn't believe they're very affordable. However, L.A., since you are quite sensitive to concealers, please test them first. :)

This very emollient concealer blends easily and covers up circles gently, and comes in a very handy packaging.
If you're looking for an opaque concealer that will really disguise dark circles, but won't hurt your wallet, this is it. I also love that I get two shades in this product for merely 300 pesos.
- This is one of the first concealers that I fell in love with. It's very soft, easy to blend, and covers well but naturally. Texture is kinda' similar to M.A.C Studio Sculpt Concealer. I got mine for around P300.00+ only from the U.S. when NYX wasn't available here yet.
- A light but opaque liquid concealer with a long-wearing, semi- matte finish. It comes in a lot of shades too!
There you go, L.A. Hope you liked this post!
To cap off our FMF for today, I just want to share this nice message from one of my readers named Bianca:
