As someone who likes a matte, full-coverage foundation, I’m always on the lookout for new and innovative products. When I saw an internet ad for the “World’s Best Foundation” you bet I clicked on it! Dermacol Makeup Cover claims to be a waterproof, hypoallergenic, SPF 30, extreme full-cover foundation. It was in my shopping cart within seconds. I purchased the lightest shade, 207.
PROS: Dermacol says this foundation will cover tattoos, blemishes, birthmarks, dark spots, etc. I only need it to cover large pores, a few fine lines, and discolorations. And boy did it ever! It applies best for me with a damp beauty blender. A foundation brush left the coverage streaky and uneven. I did use a very light second coat on my nose and cheeks, where 99% of my problem areas exist. I then used my usual setting powders and sprays and went on my way. Nearly 8 hours later, my face hadn’t moved! No redness or oily spots came through and the product didn’t break up on my face.
CONS: There are some drawbacks. There are multiple sites (Facebook, Instagram, Ebay, Wish, and Amazon) selling knockoff versions. If it says $5, $8 and you think it’s too good to be true, it’s because it is. Read some reviews on “knockoff Dermacol” and if you still want to put that on your face, best wishes. The real product sells for $34.95 for a 30 gram tube. Yes, it’s costly but this tube will last quite a while as you only need a tiny bit of product.
There are only 13 shades to choose from, so I’m not very confident about how the shades range. I should have gotten shade 208 rather than 207, but it’s tricky ordering foundation online. The deepest color didn’t look that deep to me, but that’s just my honest opinion.
I ordered my authentic Dermacol from the Dermacol Instagram site. It took me straight to their web page and ordering was very easy. I do believe that shades 207 and 208 are back ordered right now and have a 10 day wait. My order arrived in less than 2 weeks. I have used this as a full-face foundation, mixed in with lighter coverage foundations, and as a concealer and have been very pleased every time.
Amazing product this is and highly recommend it I do!
