Dermacol Make-Up Cover Basis Review

After first applying it throughout my summer time vacation I didn’t perceive the hype about this basis at all.

Now – 5 months later – I have undoubtedly grown to love it! With just a few suggestions and methods it actually even becomes just a little miracle worker and I’m right here to inform you what steps you have to keep in mind.

Just a few months ago this basis has been all over my Instagram feed at all times completely put in scene which made me extremely curious to try it myself. Sadly there are many fakes being sold and I used to be unsure the place to order from. As soon as I came upon that it was sold directly in Switzerland on I immediately had to have it.

As I’ve seen and read everywhere how intense the protection is I began out with a tiny quantity of basis once I first utilized it. As you possibly can see – my “tiny” quantity was still waay to much product!

Looking at my skin from a distance it regarded completely flawless; but when I checked out it intently 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 Make-Up Cover Foundation. I wasn’t able to make it look anyplace close to pure-looking.

Since then I’ve experimented quite a bit with this basis and I’m finally ready to share some ideas and methods making it look really pure with out dropping the good coverage.

The brand Dermacol

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

Price Point

On it retails for CHF 20.00.

In the US it really varies from vendor to seller nevertheless it principally retails for about 15$. Be careful for those who discover it for a lot cheaper, there are so many faux ones sold.

15$ may seem slightly steep but when you consider how little product you truly use it is so worth it!

Shade choice

It it always form of hard for me to find a good shade match for my really pale skin wih a neutral 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 usually nevertheless it undoubtedly lacks some really deep shades and also some yellow/olive undertones.


The inspiration is available in a golden “toothpaste-trying” tube. I actually really just like the packaging. It’s great for journey since it’s small, useful and not fragile.
