Looking good doesn’t have to be a hassle (or expensive). Sometimes, all you need is a powder and a lip and cheek tint to get that perfect no-makeup look.
If you’re still introducing yourself to the world of makeup, here are eight powder and lip tint combos you can try.
1. Etude House’s Dear Darling Water Gel Tint and Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Powder
Etude House is a classic in the lip and cheek tint scene. It’s one of the products that first crawled its way to the top when lip and cheek stains was first introduced in the Philippines. Combined with the much-loved Fit Me Matte and Poreless Powder, you get a combo that’s reasonably-priced and a step up from your usual baby powder and tinted lip balm.
2. Johnson’s Fresh & Smooth Compact Powder and Ever Bilena’s Lip & Cheek Stain
If you’re a high schooler who’s only relying on a P50/day allowance but still want to look fresh as you enter the school canteen, you can never go wrong with these two. Amounting to just less than P300, Johnson’s Fresh & Smooth compact powder in Beige and Ever Bilena’s Lip and Cheek Stain is the ultimate budget combo.
3. Skin Genie’s Lip and Cheek Stain Alive! and Nichido’s Final Powder
Another budget duo that won’t even cost you much. The best thing about these two is that they have a wide range of shades to choose from. The Stain Alive! Comes in 12 colors (so it’s a perfect cheek and lip tint for brown skin) while Nichido’s Final Powder has four variations that would suit any skin tone.
4. Human Nature’s Mineral Pressed Powder and PerfectFlush Cream Tint
Organic makeup fans, this is for you. Human Nature has made its mark as one of the leading natural makeup and skincare providers in the Philippines’ beauty industry. The PerfectFlush’s dewy glow helps balance the pressed powder’s matte finish.
5. Innisfree’s No-Sebum Mineral Powder and PeriPera’s Airy Ink Velvet
Ask any beauty guru and they would most likely say that you can never go wrong with a Korean product. While Innisfree is much-lauded for its skincare products, their No-Sebum Powder has definitely caught the attention of oily-skinned girls looking for a light and smooth solution. To complete that feather-light no-makeup look, PeriPera’s Ink Velvet lip tint provides a natural-looking color that’s easily blendable.
6. Benefit’s Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain and The POREfessional: Agent Zero Shine Face

It’s also suited for those who are frequently on-the-go because of its travel-friendly packaging (the Agent Zero Shine Face even comes with a built-in brush!).
7. Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder and Pop Oil Lip and Cheek Glow
Clinique thrives on its image of offering products that look like they were a dermatologist’s masterpiece. This is why you won’t have to worry about a thing when investing on their oil-free Stay Matte powder along with their Pop Oil Lip and Cheek tint that boasts a fluid-gel formula.
