Concealers - but not too expensive!

I usually use Clinique but it's just about to run out and I cannot really justify the expense right now.

Any recommendations for one I can buy from Boots (only make up type shop in town)? I need reasonable coverage, like the Clinique one, as I do get dark-ish circles and get some mild red patches which the Clinique one is pretty good at toning down...

The Revlon Photofinish one is nice. It's in a lipstick shape but is soft and creamy.

Second the Aldi one, it is a good as touche eclat and better than clinique imo

Collection 2000 lasting perfection is good I think its about £4, really good for bags and blemishes. I usually use Mac studio fix but have tried this and its just as good smile

Rimmel 'Hide the Blemish' is pretty good too.

i used hide the blemish daily, it's really cheap and fab

for heavier coverage the tesco make up one is also good as it's thick and covers well, can't get that in boots though grin

You cannot get better than Dermablend by Vichy. Its 15 quid for a massive tube and its really amazing. I have a scar on my face which is why I got it (in Boots) but I use t on any blemish. I hve tried them ALL and I wouldn't use another now.

I've used it forever as I have frostbite damage to my under eyes

I adore my Benefit one - 'Boi-ing'. It was £16.50, but the last one I bought was for my wedding in 2008. You really get value for money. I used that on every spot, every dark circle, every blemish every day for 2 1/2 years. Hence why I bought a second one. Excellent coverage, obviously.
