My latest beauty obsession is Dermacol cosmetics! I first discovered Dermacol from advertisements on Facebook. I don't have any tattoos, but I do have unsightly moles and freckles, which I am self conscious about and have always wanted to cover up. Dermacol is everything I have ever wanted in a concealer. It is richly pigmented, non caking, non greasy AND waterproof.
The formula is light and it only takes a tiny dab to cover a large area, or a dark spot on your skin. Some people use a brush to apply Dermacol. I haven't tried that yet. I usually just apply it to my skin with my fingertips.
- For all skin types
- SPF 30
- Preservative free
COVERAGE: Full (extreme)
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.
I'm not sure if you can really see the difference in the photos below, but on the left you can see the freckles on my chest. I then applied Dermacol concealer to my chest and in the picture on the right, my skin looks almost flawless. It looks completely natural when I am wearing it, you cannot even tell. It doesn't look fake.
I love Dermacol concealer because it does not rub off on my clothing. I never have to worry about it coming off when I go swimming. It stays on my face when I use it as a foundation. This weekend, I went to the beach and I lent my tube of Dermacol to my sister, who tested it out on the spider veins on her legs, and she was very impressed!
I love the fact that it contains a SPF 30. Usually, when I use SPF on my face, it makes my makeup very greasy looking. Dermacol is a makeup with a built in sunscreen. How perfect is that? This amazing concealer is like a second, yet flawless skin! I am in love!

I am in LOVE! I have found the absolute PERFECT concealer, hands down. It is awesome. I discovered Time Balm Concealer in my favorite beauty store, Sephora. I was able to try it in the store and I just loved it. I was in the market for a new foundation/concealer, but I didn't know quite what I was looking for until I found it. Time Balm Concealer covers up the flaws I wish to hide. I mean I am turning 40 in December and I have quite a few imperfections that I wish to hide, so this concealer is perfect. I applied it under my eyes and I also use it as an all-over foundation because this stuff also fights wrinkles! It covers up my pores, too. It is not greasy and does not make me shiny, either. I am so happy with it!
From their website:
What it is:
A handy anti-wrinkle cream concealer.
What it does:
This portable pot of smooth, blendable cream concealer easily banishes under-eye circles and imperfections. Use TimeBalm not only for great coverage but also to treat dark spots and fine lines. They're great for daytime, nighttime, or even bedtime, so you wake up looking fabulously fresh.
What else you need to know:
TimeBalm includes a convenient sponge that fits snugly into the pot for go-anywhere touch-ups, or dot on with fingertips for easy application.
Size: 0.25 oz
