Determining the best drugstore concealer really comes down to what you personally want out of a concealer.
The bare minimum you want out of a concealer is good coverage but perhaps you want to be able to build up to a full coverage without it appearing cakey or feeling heavy on the skin. Maybe you want a concealer with added skin-care benefits or a specifically designed undereye concealer to target those pesky dark circles.
Regardless of what you are looking for from your concealer, there are a plethora of different formulas and designs available to meet your needs.
