Description:
The clinically tested, extreme covering Make up Cover was created as the first of its kind in Europe and one of the first in the world. The license for this foundation was eventually sold to Hollywood. It contains 50% pigments, which makes it a weapon against skin imperfections. DERMACOL MAKE-UP COVER provides PERFECT COVERAGE even in thin layers and is the perfect corrector for dark under-eye, unpleasant spots and skin blemishes. It completely covers acne, loss of pigmentation, post surgical bruising, tattoos etc. It may be used on the entire face or body for color correction, darkening or lightening the skin tones, and ensuring ideal balance. It is widely used as a professional make-up for photo or film shoots, modeling and for festive occasions.

Both shades dont match me again. Haha! 208 is too light and 210 is too dark. I mix them with my other foundations to get the right color.

I’m glad that this product is very affordable. You can get the full size for less than 1000 pesos. But beware of fakes. Buy from trusted sellers only. This foundation was specifically made as stage makeup. My skin is so “snatched” when I’m using this. It’s so smooth that it looks unrealistic. You have to apply contour, blush and highlight. Or wait for it to set before you head out.

Now for the coverage test:

It’s the only drugstore foundation that gives great coverage, in my opinion. I like that it doesnt emphasize my textures compared to other foundations. I have oily skin but I prefer this over matte finish. Now for the down side; it can feel heavy. I mix it with other products instead. If you want to use it alone, apply it with a damped sponge to reduce heaviness. It also wears off after a few hours. The longevity will depend on your activities like commuting or staying the whole day in an airconditioned place.

This product is great for covering hyperpigmentations. It would be great for formal events as stated in the description. This is not for people who like natural no makeup look. You will look snatched for sure and that’s what I like personally. Have you tried this? What shade is your match?
