Hide And Seek The Budget Way : 12 Concealers Under INR 500!

Hola folks!!

Let me ask you a question. What is that one product which you consider most essential in your vanity? For me, it is a concealer, or even a BB cream/foundation that works the same way. Because, if there is anything that should be an essential for your “barely there” look, it has to be a concealer.

Budget concealer

An ideal concealer should be non cakey, non creasy, light and most of all, providing adequate coverage. Apart from these qualities that we seek in our “dream concealer”, if a quality product is available at a budget price, it’s time to do a “hallelujah” dance. 😀

So, today for you my pretties, I present a list of all the concealers that you can get for a price below INR 500, without pinching a hole in your pocket.

Alright, here we go!!

1. Colorbar Full Cover Concealer

Price: INR 495/-

Quantity: 5 gm

This concealer comes in a pot form and in whooping 9 shades!! That means that almost every complexion gets a match here. Not only does it provide full coverage, but also, the bonus comes in the form of SPF 35. The texture is super creamy, and the low price means that you save money to buy a concealer brush. Even if you are a finger person, this concealer spreads like butter under the heat of your fingers to give absolutely blended and even coverage.

2. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

Price: INR 500/-

Quantity: 1.5 ml

Available in 3 shades, the first thing that will capture your heart is gorgeous packaging of a concealer and brush in one. Though, the concealer does take a bit of time to come on the brush the first time, it sure makes application easier. It does not hide, but blur the blemishes, and is a very good option if you have minor dark circles to camouflage. Also, less number of shades is a drawback, but if you manage to find your match, this is a good budget option.

3. Maybelline Clear Glow BB Stick

Price: Rs. 250/-

Quantity: 10 gm

Though, this is not a concealer in the traditional sense, this is one BB stick for whole face that provides medium coverage. It comes in two shades, and that is a bit of a drawback as most people find their match in the mix of those two. The good thing is that it contains SPF 21, provides medium coverage and stays for a long time, controlling oil. And you get all that without pinching a hole in your pocket. So, if you find your shade, you are the lucky one.

4. Coloressence Roll-on Panstick Concealer

Price: Rs. 185/-

Quantity: 12.5 gm

No matter how underrated this brand might be, but it is slowly coming into focus. The best part is that it is available in a variety of shades. Ignore the fact that some of them are just plain ridiculous. However, they offer so many shades in pink and yellow tones, that it covers all the Indian skin tones. It gives medium coverage and unless you have the darkest of under eye circles, and blemishes, you should definitely give this one a try. Also, it is plain awesome for oily skin.

5. Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick

Price: Rs. 499/-

Quantity: 3.6 ml

A gem from the Lakme Absolute range, this little stick comes in 3 shades, which is a bit of a downside. However, those 3 manage to cover most skin tones. Also, it contains SPF 20, gives a matte finish, and controls oil. It gives medium coverage and stays on for a long time. It just creases a bit, so quick blending, and subsequent setting with powder is required.

6. Essence Stay Natural Concealer

Price: Rs. 249/-

Quantity: 1.5 ml

Essence is yet another brand making way for itself, by producing quality products at an affordable price. It offers four shades, two cool toned and too warm toned. It looks exactly like the Maybelline Lumi Touch Concealer i.e. in the shape of a pen with a brush on top for application. It provides soft medium coverage, and will blur and camouflage minor dark circles and some blemishes. However, if you have many spots and blemishes and extreme dark circles, you can give this a skip. Otherwise, this is a value for money product, perfect for daily use.

7. Essence Forget It 3-in-1 Concealer

Hide And Seek The Budget Way 12 Concealers Under INR 500!6

Price: Rs. 299/-

Quantity: 3.5 gm

It is a tri colored palette, which contains concealer cum correcter. You get a sea green shade to cover up the redness around nose and mouth, a pink shade to cover and correct the under eye area, and a medium beige shade to cover other blemishes. And all this just at a price of 299!! However, the coverage is sheer to medium, and there are no shades available for medium to dark skin tones. This is great for a daily look when you do not want to use too much of makeup and just minor concealing. However, stay away if you have many corrections to be done on your face.

8. Essence Cover Stick Concealer

Price: Rs. 249/-

Quantity: 5 gm

It comes in a retractable stick form. It gives a creamy matte finish, and controls oil. It covers dark circles and blurs and covers most blemishes easily. Once applied, it sets pretty quickly, so you have to be swift in blending it. Fingers work best for the purpose. At such a low price, this one is a great daily wear concealer, if not the best.

9. Lotus Herbals Natural Blend Swift Makeup Stick

Hide And Seek The Buadget Way 12 Concealers Under INR 500!11

Price: Rs. 325/-

Quantity: 10 gm

This one is more of a full face stick, and a foundation and concealer into one kind of product. It offers sun protection, gives medium coverage and is very creamy and soft to blend into your skin. Plus, the shades offered cover most of Indian skin tones. Also, it is a herbal product, and does not leave white cast in spite of having spf. The only thing is that it is not that much well suited for oily skinned beauties, and is better for dry skinned gals.

10. Faces Canada Profix Concealer

Hide And Seek The Buadget Way 12 Concealers Under INR 500!11

Price: Rs. 449/-

Quantity: 5 gm

This is more in the form of a cream compact, offering a 3-in-1 product with foundation, concealer and compact into one, with an attached mirror, to be an all in one product for your trips. It has few shades to offer, but if you find yours, you are a lucky person. It provides excellent coverage, camouflaging most of the problem areas, and is water and sweat resistant. It has to be blended well and set with powder, to avoid creasing.

11. Faces Vanishing Act Concealer Stick

Price: Rs. 449/-

Quantity: 9 gm

This is one concealer stick that has been loved by all and sundry, for it has been claimed to be the best for acne prone and oily skin. It comes in a retractable packaging, which is sturdy enough. It goes on to blend smoothly on your skin after you have done your daily CTM routine. The texture is dreamy creamy, but at the same time it gives a perfect finish and controls the shine and oil for a long time. It gives medium coverage. It is a very good daily wear product, if you just want to conceal some parts, dust on a powder, and be on the roll.

12. Rimmel London Hide The Blemish Concealer

Hide And Seek The Buadget Way 12 Concealers Under INR 500!11

Price: Rs. 325/-

Quantity: 4.5 gm

It comes in a bullet form, and the packaging is travel friendly and sturdy. The texture is super creamy, and it gives a medium to full coverage. The only problem is limited shade selection. So if you are lucky to find yours, do give this a shot, without pinching a hole in your pocket.

So folks! This was my list of some of the best budget concealers that you can get in the market, with a 500 rupee note in your pocket. Do let us know if you have some others in mind. Till the next time, tadaaaaa!! 😀 😀

  1. Wow! what a list! And i too agree that a concealer is the most essential part of makeup. I was contemplating on a new concealer and this post has come in right on time!

    1. Thanks Lana 🙂 That’s why I said in the end that you guys can add some more concealers that you can think of. It will help. I have never tried Kryolan, but I am not sure if it comes within the price tag of 500. 🙂

    1. Really? On the contrary, I have oily skin too, and it not only gave my face a natural and matte look, but also benefited my oily skin due to the ingredients. Like when I washed it off at night, my skin literally glowed. The only problem that I faced with it was the shade selection. 🙁 I think maybe it depends on person to person. Your skin might be sensitive. 🙁

  2. Thanku so much for this list….Can u plz suggest me which is the best concealer for heavy dark circle people among the list or ntg else as i am facing it???

    1. Thanks Nithya! 🙂 For medium to heavy coverage, I would recommend Colorbar Full Cover Concealer. You can even buy the Colorbar Full Cover Stick with SPF 30. It is available for around 650, but worth it. Hope that helps. 🙂

  3. rimmel has so many budget concealer options 🙂 nice compilation dear.. for a person like me who barely need and use concealer these budget options are like treasure discovered 🙂

    1. Hi5 anubhuti!! Me too not a hardcore concealer user, so finding out and researching about these budget options has been good for me too 🙂
