Welcome back to another post, I have you’ve all had a great week and have a good weekend planned 🙂
So today I am reviewing and talking about the “worlds most full coverage foundation”. The reason this is in quotation marks is because I don’t actually think it has been tested to have this title. BUT, let me just say ‘full’ coverage doesn’t even explain the coverage this foundation gives.
You may have noticed already, if you’ve been following me for a while that I am pretty obsessed with trying out new foundations, as lets face it, if you cant get your base right then your whole makeup look will feel ugh.
Now this isn’t like a new discovery as I have seen lots of youtube videos on this foundation (only recently though, I’m a little late)- which if I’m honest made me intrigued to buy it and have a go. As I have been testing this for 2 weeks, I have decided to let you guys know how I got on.
The foundation is called Dermacol, and you can buy it from eBay here.
Let’s just get the first thing straight. IT IS SOOOOOO CHEAP! Literally, I paid £5.49 and it came within 2 days.
As far as I’m aware, Dermacol is a Czech brand and originally started in film making (hence the reason for the super full coverage), and their makeup is used in photography, films and generally for people with problematic ache prone skin. So for me, yeah well I don’t really fall into any of those categories, I’m just an intrigued 24 year old who is obsessed with foundations.
Let’s talk specifically about the foundation…
So it was created as the first of its kind in Europe and one of the first in the world. It contains 50% pigments, so it can literally cover up everything! When I say everything, it’s known to cover up tattoos, it’s that full coverage. And the amazing thing is you don’t need much product AT ALL. I’m talking pea size for your face! A little goes a long way.
The foundation comes in a 30g gold like tube packaging which is popped into a black box. I mean, the packaging I’d say isn’t exactly the best, but it’s so cheap I’m not that bothered.
In terms of the available shades, there isn’t the largest range to choose from, but I went for shade 213 to start off with, and I’d say this one was a bit too dark/orange for my tone. Then recently, I bought shade 210 and its a much better shade. This is the lighter one in the photo.
Now, I’ve talked about the coverage, as that’s the main quality of this foundation but lets talk about other factors.
The foundation is best applied with a brush rather than a beauty blender, it seems to blend it much better with a brush. When the foundation dries it dries quite sheen, although you think it would be matt, it’s not matt at all. I like an in between finish but this does come out quite shiny, so I like to apply a lot of powder over the top to set it nicer.
Is it long lasting? I mean it’s not amaaaaaazing, but it’s no less than my double wear or other foundations I like so you can’t really knock it there. The only thing is, after a few hours the shine does start to come through so you need to top it up with powder to calm it down.
This foundation is literally perfect for covering up particularly problem areas on your face, over even to cover up dark circles. Sometimes, if I don’t want a heavy make up look, I’ll use this as a concealer to cover up sports or blemishes, and it’s great for doing that.
In all honesty, for the price, it’s good to buy and have for any bad breakout days or whether your taking photos as your skin literally looks flawless in it, so that’s my verdict!
Have you tried this at all? Or heard much about it?
