Dermacol Foundation // Review

I've heard about Dermacol before, but it wasn't until I watched Soph Does Nails trying it out that I decided to snap some up for myself. I paid around seven quid for mine on eBay, and it arrived pretty quickly. Dermacol is a beauty range that originates from Barrandov Film Studios, where I have actually been (they've filmed some pretty cool films there, too) and it's now available to buy for the general public. The Make-Up Cover is a waterproof, SPF30 hypoallergenic foundation that's meant to  cover everything.

So how did I get on? I used a primer, because I always do, and this time I opted for the Cover FX Calming Primer which is lush. I decided not to bother with colour correcting, and only applied a tiny bit of Freedom Pro Camouflage Paste on my blemishes. I then went in with Dermacol, using a really dense foundation brush rather than a blending sponge. I decided to use a brush because I was worried the foundation would be too thick for a sponge, and in the end I really loved how the foundation applied with the brush.

It had a more dewy finish than I was anticipating so I set it a teeeeeny bit with some Vichy loose powder. Other than that, it did what I thought it would do: cover. My skin, other than one raised spot, looked pretty flawless. The rest of my make up applied really nicely on top, and the finished look was really nice if I do say so myself.

It doesn't set down completely, and even with powder it did transfer a bit when I touched my skin - but it lasted really well, and still looked decent after a 5 hour Saturday night pub shift! I'd definitely recommend giving it a go if you're after full coverage; I'm the shade 208 which is a really good match for me, and I'm pretty pale by most people's standards.

Have you tried anything form Dermacol? We're heading to Prague in October so we'll definitely be picking up some more of their products!
