9. Elf 16HR Camo Concealer, ₹361

The 16HR Camo Concealer has been labeled a dupe of the infamous Tarte Shape Tape concealer, which for like 17% of the cost, is pretty insane! Just like Shape Tape, the e.l.f. formula is a full-coverage, super creamy concealer with a matte finish that’ll cover everything from dark circles to pimples. The formula isn’t super lightweight but blends out beautifully with a damp makeup sponge. Set it with a loose setting powder for a crease-free finish that lasts all day long! We also love that there are 18 shades that range from fair to deep so you can easily find a color match. We like to go one or two shades lighter for brightening the under eyes.

10. Real Techniques Make-up Brushes, ₹829

There are makeup brushes and then there are the Real Techniques makeup brushes. Not only are they super cute but the synthetic brushes perform just as well as most luxe brushes, which is why you’ll often see them used by celebs in their Vogue makeup routines. They also come in the most amazing bundles, so you don’t have to buy a set of 16 to find the brush you’re looking for. They blend, they build, they buff, all while helping you achieve the most flawless, airbrushed finish at a fraction of the cost.

Miracle products made from diamonds and encased in gold are amazing, but a great formula at a low price can make our heart skip a beat. The thing is, you don’t have to splurge to find a makeup product that’ll beat your face to perfection, there are tons of amazing drugstore options! Here were 10 cheap makeup products we use in our everyday routine…
