You don't have to use the same brand just make sure your primer concealer and foundation all have the same base (water, gel, or oil). Water and oil do not mix so if the products your using don't have the same base they are not going to blend as well or last as long as if they do have the same base. I'm sure you can find something from the drugstore within your price range that will work with this corrector!
No, you do not need to purchase both! In my opinion the corrector alone makes for a very natural result; no cakey/thick finish.

Yes, you can use the corrector with a different brand concealer, or even on its own! I initally bought the Bobbi Brown corrector AND concealer kit. However, the corrector matched my skin tone and covered great on its own that I didn't even need the concealer!

First, figure out if you really need it. Sephora helped me figure out that my eyes are not that bad, and the simple pen (I like the YSL Touche Eclate) highlights and covers enough to give me enough coverage.... I am not doing a photo shoot). I also tried many other heavy duty concealers, that were one step. The Amazing Cosmetics has a nice but heavier duty concealer. There are many other concealers out there. Seems LM / BB and now Josie Moran (I loved her concealer that is now discontinued) have moved to the yellow + peach combo). Works great for some. Is a heavy duty make up application, not great for those that don't need as much, or want an instant "go to" product. I know some love this, however BB and LM claim this is "THE WAY" to do your under eyes, the only thing that works, and show this on the morning TV shows, U Tube Videos, Make up books, etc. There are other options that may work better for many people for some reason - look around and try different things before you commit to this product (pricey and takes time). BB is not always right.
