Fashion 21 Perfect Stick
Product type: Concealer
Features: tea tree oil content, sun protection
Price: Around Php200
Review: “Impressed with Fashion 21 Perfect Stick with Tea Tree Oil. It has a light to medium coverage. What I love about it is that it does not cake at all and won’t make my skin super oily. Plus, it’s long lasting and the price is fair for its market. Works well with the type of skin I have (oily and super sensitive).”- Mai Policarpio, mother and owner, Adam and Eve Organique.
