I don't know about you, but I go through concealer more than any other beauty product I own/use/am obsessed with. Here's why: Not only do I use cover-up under my eyes and around my nose, I dab it over my eyelids to cancel out any redness from the tiny, visible veins that can make me look instantly tired, and, of course, pat it on to hide blemishes when they decide to grace my face with their presence.
What I look for in a cover-up: One that blends well, conceals even better, and doesn't drain your cash stash. Here, three concealers that'll keep your skin sitch—whatever that may be—covered, while keeping your budget intact.
Best for Touch-Ups
Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer
The covered fuzzy applicator on the end of this concealer instantly makes applying this formula sooooo much easier (and more sanitary!). Toss it in your bag and whip it out when you need a hit of concealer under your eyes, or dab the tip over a zit to instantly hide it. You'll be shocked at the coverage it delivers and the fact that it's under P400!

Best Opaque Coverage
L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer
If you need your concealer to pack an opaque punch, consider this your new go-to. You're sure to find the perfect match for your skin tone and get out the door without having to coat on layer after layer.

Best Blendable Formula
NYX Professional Makeup Hi-Definition Photo Concealer Wand
With 19 shades that range from "Alabaster" to "Espresso," this lightweight concealer manages to pack a pretty hefty coverage punch. Why, you ask? It successfully covers what you need it to (dark circles, zits, and redness), but doesn't feel heavy or cakey on your skin. One Cosmo staffer actually said you can even skip foundation since this can double as a full-coverage foundation that blends really well and goes on evenly.
