Tinted moisturizers—the BB and CC creams of before—were a staple in every girl’s vanity kit who wanted to channel the cool, nonchalant beauty of girls of year 2000s like Mischa Barton and Rachel Bilson during their The O.C. days. Now, it’s high time we went back to this lovable product that not only gave us an insta-filter, but kept our skin feeling baby soft as well. Check out our picks:


1. For those in need of more coverage: NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska, P2450, Rustan’s

This lightweight formula clears up your complexion by covering acne marks and sun spots with sheer, buildable coverage that creates the illusion of perfect skin. The best part is that it’s so soft and smooth that it’s hardly even noticeable. 

2. For those with heavy duty needs: Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20, P780, Mary Kay Beauty Center 2F Allegro Centerm2284 Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati

3. The cult classic: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF20 Oil Free, P1,995, Rustan’s

4. For barely there coverage: Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum SPF30, P2,750, Rustan’s
