As you might have guessed from the title of this post, this is an updated review of the Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation. I have, obviously, done one before, but as I can see a lot of people still read it, I wanted to update it to how I write my reviews now.

The Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation (£14.90 for 30 g) is said to be the first of its kind in Europe and one of the first in the world. I own mine in the shade 207. Besides this full coverage foundation does Dermacol also offer 10 other foundations which include other full coverage foundations and more natural foundations.

On their website, they state that the foundation:
 – are extreme covering
 – have a natural looking finish
 – are waterproof
 – are hypoallergenic
 – are for all skin types
 – contains SPF 30
 – are preservative-free

I want to start out by talking about the packaging. I think that the box the foundation comes in is really cute and that the tube that contains the foundation looks stunning as well! The only thing I dislike about the packaging is, as I also mentioned in my previous review, the material the tube is made of as it will crack in the edges over time. This will result in you getting foundation all over your fingers when you are squeezing the foundation out of the tube. No thank you.

I use the picture of the packaging from my old review as I no longer store the foundation in its original packaging. I bought a container which can hold 30 g so a tube of foundation can be stored in there.

As they state, the foundation is extremely pigmented. The first time I heard about the foundation was in a video on Instagram where they showed that it could cover up a tattoo. I tested this on my boyfriend’s arm. I used a pretty thick layer of the foundation and it covered his tattoo pretty good. It might have been better with a colour corrector underneath. If I want to wear a full face of makeup, I usually do not go for this foundation as my foundation. I would normally only use this as a concealer because it is so full coverage. If I want to wear no-makeup makeup, I actually use this one because you can make it look pretty natural if you only apply it to the centre of your face and then blend it out. I prefer a makeup sponge to blend out this foundation. The foundation is also waterproof as long as you don’t rub your face if it has become wet. If your foundation has become wet, then lightly tab it dry.

I have sensitive normal skin, and I think this foundation works great for my skin type! I have used this foundation for about three years now and it has never irritated my skin. If you have dry skin and maybe dry padges or flakes of skin, then this foundation might cling to it depending on your primer. If I have a dried out pimple, I like to use the NYX Cosmetics Pore Filler (*) on the pimple, then the foundation won’t cling to it!

I really like this foundation which also is why I have been using it for three years now. The only thing that irritates me is the material the tube is made of. I will award this foundation 5 out of 5 possible hearts!

I think this foundation is very versatile and is great for a lot of different looks. I think it is sad that they only offer 16 shades and there are no darker shades in the range. I hope you enjoyed this updated review! Let me know in the comments if you have tried the Dermacol Makeup Cover Foundation before, and if you like it or not! I hope to see you back soon! xx
