Drugstore Concealers That ACTUALLY Work

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer - Honey - £8.99 for 6.8ml
This is one of those Instagram made me buy its. The formula of the Maybelline eye eraser is quite thin but it's really pigmented and high coverage. It doesn't cake up or crease on me as I always set it with a powder and setting spray. I find this particular concealer is ideal for under the eyes and covering redness around my nose. The only downside for me is the lack of shades; According to the internet there's actually 5 shades but I could only find 3 in my local Boots & Superdrug. The closest shade for me was Honey, it's an okay match but a little too light for my personal preference. But being Asian, I have friends and family that are a lot darker/lighter than me and I feel like as an established brand, Maybelline could have been a lot more inclusive.

Collection Lasting Perfection - 5 Medium Deep - £4.19 for 6.5ml
I was SO excited to see that Collection had finally some darker shades of their lasting perfection concealer. Lasting perfection is a concealer I've wanted to try for too long but Collection have only sold pale shades. The formula is thick and creamy, I've found it's really good at concealing blemishes in comparison to the Maybelline concealer above. The shade is quite orange though, luckily it's easy to blend out. I'd say it's quite a matte. This is supposed to be a good dupe for the Nars radiant creamy concealer, so for just over £4 in comparison to £24 it is a good bargain. Again, I do think collection need to expand their shade range further.

Elf B Bare Light Weight Concealer Stick - Medium Dark - £5 for 3.3g
This is my current, go to concealer that I use on a daily basis. It's really thick and not as creamy as the Collection and Maybelline concealers that I talked about above. The thicker consistency makes this better for covering spots as the formula doesn't move around as much. It's really easy to blend and can be used for contouring as well as concealing according to Elf.
