The best drugstore concealers
A concealer is one of the most important things you can ever have in your makeup bag.
It helps to cover up blemishes, hide dark circles, and brighten up your face. This is something a lot of us can’t live without because it comes in handy on those days where you wake up looking like a zombie (due to lack of enough sleep)
If you know me, you know I love using drugstore products a lot because they are cheaper and get the job done just as good as all those high-end products, if not better.
 So if you’ve been wondering which concealer is best for covering up your imperfections and brightening up your complexion, wonder no more. Here are the 10 best concealers at the drugstore for you to check out.

1.Maybelline instant age rewind eraser dark circles concealer + treatment

This one of the most talked-about concealers ever! But there is a reason for that. it’s so good. It gives excellent coverage and doesn’t crease at all. The formula is infused with goji berry and Haloxyl that keeps you looking radiant all day while reducing the puffiness around your eyes. It comes in 12 shades, and it’s just $10 (N3500)  It stays on for a long time, and it’s effortless to blend.

2.L.A girl pro conceal HD concealer

This was the first concealer I have ever used in my life. probably because they were so cheap. It’s high coverage and very lightweight and lasts the whole day. Did I mention that it comes in 31 shades and matching color correctors to help you create a flawless face? I will advise you to grab one, or two, or even 6, just like me. You won’t regret it.

3.NYX professional makeup Hi-Definition photo concealer wand

This concealer does an amazing job when it comes to hiding imperfections and blemishes. It’s super lightweight, very easy to blend, and comes in 23 shades, including 3 color correctors. What I love about it is the fact that it’s suitable for all skin types so you don’t worry about picking the wrong formula for your skin type as a beginner.

4.E.L.F cosmetics complete coverage concealer

This concealer comes in 3 variations – light, medium, and dark, and each palette contains 4 shades that you can blend and play around with. It’s creamy, versatile, and lightweight. This is probably the cheapest drugstore concealer you can find out there that is too good for its price. You can get this for $3 (N1000) in some places! If you ask me, that’s unbelievably cheap!

5.Maybelline fit me concealer

One word for this concealer – AMAZING! This oil-free formula concealer does a great job in concealing dark circles and blemishes. It’s high coverage, long-wearing and it comes in 12 shades. I still use this concealer because I love how light it feels under my eyes and the natural look it gives me. I totally and highly recommend it!

6.E.L.F cosmetics 16HR camo concealer

This is another amazing concealer you should try. Did you know that it sold out everywhere for weeks? That’s just to tell you how amazing it is. It is very good for everyday use because it blends easily and has good coverage. It comes in 18 shades

7.Wet n wild photo focus concealer

Wet n wild is no here to joke! Their products keep getting better every single day and this concealer is one of their masterpieces. It is very lightweight, doesn’t feel cakey at all and you can build your coverage. It’s just $4 (N1500)  and it comes in 14 shades.

8.Colourpop no filter concealer

One of the main reasons I started using color pop was because they ship to Nigeria.  Their products are really amazing and very wallet-friendly. I tried this concealer after one of my favorite YouTubers Dimmah Umeh used it in one of her videos and it looked amazing. It is very lightweight and it stays on all day. The only thing is that it slightly oxidizes so I will always advise you to get a shade lighter than your normal shade so that when It oxides, it will become normal.

9.Covergirl trublend undercover concealer

This concealer is simply amazing especially for those of you with oily skin because it gives a flawless matte finish. It’s full coverage so all your dark circles and blemishes will be covered completely. It comes in 30 shades so you will find your desired shade.

10. Maybelline super-stay better skin concealer

Maybelline just keeps blessing us with great products at reasonable prices. This concealer has a thick consistency which blends out easily leaving you with a semi-matte finish. sadly, it comes in only 6 shades but it’s less than $7 (N2500) which is amazing.

Pro tips

1.concealers are excellent for highlighting and contouring. For highlighting, choose a concealer 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone. For contouring, use a concealer 2-3 shades darker than your skin tone.
2.Always set your concealer with a setting powder so that it can last all day.
3.For severely dark under-eye circles, apply a color corrector before concealer. Choose the right color correcting shade for your skin tone: Pink – cancels out dark under-eye circles on fair skin tones. Orange – cancels out dark under-eye circles on medium to deep skin tones.
It’s always a good idea to try and reduce your dark circles naturally. Here is how I got rid of mine in 3 days, naturally.

    Maybelline eraser and fit me concealers are the bomb! I love them so much. Although I do find they are not super long lasting (in terms of long lasting in the pot, they run out quickly!). I love how you also included some tips in this post.
