If you are anything like me then you go through concealers like they are water so if it's good quality and affordable I will definitely be repurchasing.

I often like to apply just a BB Cream then add concealer to areas I want full coverage so I definitely go through my fair share of the product and don't necessarily want to spend upwards of $30 per tube. Each of these four options I have to share with you are ridiculously affordable, ranging between $2.80 and $14.95, and won't let you down in quality.

Maybelline FIT Me Concealer ($14.95)
This lightweight yet full coverage concealer provides a light feel to the skin that doesn't look cakey but covers everything. In terms of formulation I would say that this is very comparable to the raved about Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. You can purchase a lighter colour and do some serious under eye highlighting or choose a colour the same shade as your skintone for seamless coverage of pigmentation or acne. It has a doe foot applicator with a long wand perfect for quick and easy application. You can purchase this product here.
Australis Paparazzi Perfect Concealer ($11.95)
This product has quite a thick formulation, perfect for those of you who love full coverage and don't mind a heavier product if it covers everything. I love how hydrating the formulation is so if you have dry skin this will be a must have. I do wish they had more colours in this range as they only have about two or three similar to their pressed powders, but if you can find a shade that suits you then you will love it. This is a squeezy tube style concealer so you can apply it to your fingers or a brush then to your skin. You can purchase this product here.
Maybelline SuperStay 24 hour Concealer ($14.95)
This is my holy grail under eye concealer because it is incredibly full coverage and has a liquid to powder formulation. Due to this you have to be very cautious to blend well since it has a tendency to crease but the incredible under eye highlight is well worth it. They have a great range of colours so you are sure to find the shade you are looking for. You can purchase this product here.
Daiso Brightening Brush Concealer ($2.80) 
Under $3 for a concealer, can you really say no? This hydrating and lightweight formula has an interesting medium coverage, perfect for those natural everyday looks. This concealer goes on one colour then adapts to your natural skin tone to suit better. I love the brush applicator but for hygiene reasons I prefer to apply it to the back of my hand and use a different brush. That being said, you could definitely apply it directly then replace it every month or so since the product is so cheap anyway. This product is available from Daiso stores but stock may vary.
So if you are a high end concealer junkie looking to save some money or are on the market to try out some new concealer, give either of these a go and you won't be disappointed (but be cautious with the Daiso one since it is quite natural so only for certain looks).
