Dermacol Make-Up Cover Basis Assessment

After first making use of it throughout my summer trip I didn’t understand the hype about this basis at all.

Now – 5 months later – I have positively grown to like it! With a number of ideas and tricks it truly even becomes a little bit miracle worker and I’m right here to let you know what steps you have to maintain in mind.

A number of months ago this basis has been throughout my Instagram feed all the time perfectly put in scene which made me extraordinarily curious to strive it myself. Sadly there are many fakes being sold and I used to be not sure where to order from. As soon as I discovered that it was sold directly in Switzerland on I immediately had to have it.

As I’ve seen and read in all places how intense the protection is I started out with a tiny quantity of basis when I first applied it. As you may see – my “tiny” amount was still waay to a lot product!

Looking at my skin from a distance it regarded absolutely flawless; however when I looked at it closely it appeared extremely cakey! To apply it I used the Buffing Brush by Real Techniques which turned out to be an enormous mistake since that brush didn’t really work out with the thick texture of the Dermacol foundation Make-Up Cowl Foundation. I wasn’t able to make it look anyplace near pure-looking.

Since then I have experimented lots with this foundation and I’m lastly ready to share some ideas and tips making it look really natural with out shedding the great coverage.

The brand Dermacol

Dermacol is a Czech brand which was really founded back within the 60ies. The products had been originally created for the film factory Barrandov Studio in Prague. Since everybody needs to look flawless in films and images the Dermacol Make-up Cowl Basis contains 50% pigments which makes it so high coverage.

Price Point

On it retails for CHF 20.00.

Within the US it really varies from seller to vendor but it surely mostly retails for about 15$. Be careful if you happen to find it for a lot cheaper, there are so many pretend ones sold.

15$ could appear a little bit steep however in the event you consider how little product you truly use it is so value it!

Shade selection

It it always type of hard for me to discover a good shade match for my really pale skin wih a impartial to yellow undertone. I’ve picked up the shade 208, which fortunately turned out to be pale enough for me. Back in July it was even too light for me however now it fits me perfectly.

The shade choice isn’t too bad basically but it surely definitely lacks some really deep shades and also some yellow/olive undertones.


The inspiration comes in a golden “toothpaste-trying” tube. I actually really just like the packaging. It’s great for travel since it’s small, useful and never fragile.
