well I look for something to cover up my bad skin no not acne just from pcos if you wanna read up and know why I thrive for something to cover my skin!!! anyhows I read about the Vichy dermablend got excited and bought that well what a fat load of good that was! absolutely pants! and then read and watched the skeleton boy advert and read reviews on the leg and body get a massive bottle hard to find in the uk mind! received it and tried it was waaaaay too light for my skin so was sooo gutted but it has replaced my panstick I was using from maxfactor as a concealer! id like to state im not a make up artist im just a normal girl looking for a good coverage! and so I use this as my new concealer to hide the greenish colours of my neck and jawline! and its fab underneath my foundation its almost like a second skin before I apply foundation! lovely thank you dermablend!
Bought this 2 years ago hoping to cover up some stretch marks for summer. Tested it on the back of my hand at Ulta and it looked flawless so I got it and couldn't wait to try it some more at home. Dermablend is thick, creamy & difficult to rub in. Don't recall there being a bad smell to it, though. Their options are very minimal so if you can find an exact or believable match, you're one of the lucky ones! I got the darkest option, which looked ashened on my nw45 skin. My stretch marks are still visible and I refuse to trash this product cuz it was $$$! If you have the time to play around and/or add other form of product to the Dermablend, it could possibly work! IMO, your average drugstore foundation can likely cover up imperfections or tats a lot better than Dermablend.
Pros: Easy to purchase, earned Ulta points.
Cons: Rubs easily on clothing, obvious heavy coverage, the price, minimal complexion options.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! 2 years ago I got this and actually used it on my face. Doesnt make me break out or anything. I put moisturizer on then a small amount and finish it off with makeup forever high definition powder. it works great! Its waterproof which is what I LOVE...It lasts me all day and night especially in the summer ALSO the tube it comes in is so much bigger and theres so much more product unlike there smooth indulgence foundation. This permanent staple of mine for sure.
Good for minor imperfections - If you can find the right skintone match. I have a small tattoo on my foot I need to cover for work, I spent forever in the shop testing and still didn't end up with the right colour. It does cover up the tattoo, but the colours don't match so I now opt for a bandaid instead.
Product is good as a facial concealer, completely covers under eye circles, redness from pimples and freckles. And definitely stays put throughout the day. But i'm sure a cheaper concealer would do just as well.
Note: The light colours are very 'Pink based'. I would suggest the more yellow based tones for caucasian/asian skin.
i picked a pimple on my neck so bad it looked like a chemical burn. the skin was dark, then scabbed and fell off. i was left with a really fleshy mark. my regular mac concealers couldn't cover the flesh. it just looked weird. i honestly didn't want to buy the dermablend because this isn't a normal issue i had but i was taking pics today and i just knew i wouldn't feel comfortable not covering it. plus i was just embarrassed walking around with it. anyway, the dermablend face concealer wasn't a good color match and the consistency was thick. as a last ditch effort (because the ulta didn't have anyone to help me) i tried the leg and body cream. it was a bit reddish for my tone but it did cover so it wasn't fleshy. once i set it with my regular meow cosmetics powder it was perfect!! my pic is the side by side comparison (brown skin). yes this is spendy and it's not the perfect match but when applying lightly with a sponge and a couple of layers and setting with powder this stuff really works. oh, and it lasts really well too. more than the 16 hours advertised and no breakouts from it either. yeah! i'll keep some on hand always!!
I purchased some Dermablend products to cover a small 1.5 x2 inch tattoo that has lots of blues and purples in it. Supposedly you use the primer first, which only comes in two shades, #1 and #2....#1 is supposed to be the lighter primer, but it's really dark, so skip the primer unless you have a good tan all year round. If the leg cover cream you need is lighter than it, good luck trying to cover up because the primer will show right through!!! So I tried the "beige" leg & body creme, looked okay in the store but ended up being too orange. Returned the whole lot to the department store and asked the counter lady for a sample container of "light". I needed about 5 layers of it, letting them dry in between and even though the tattoo is mostly covered up, it still looks like there's something underneath. This product may work best for smaller and lighter tattoos, but if you have something huge to cover on a daily basis for work or something, you better wake up early! Stores need to have the DB pro artists come in more often and have events to show people how to use it in person, maybe then I'd be convinced. Otherwise it's just average, nothing special.
I have the ugliest legs ever--keratosis pilaris (little brown dots where hair follicles are), minor hyperpigmentation, visible green veins (not spider veins), and scars. Although it's more of an aesthetic issue than an actual health problem, I still think my legs are disgusting. For years I've refused to wear shorts. I even feel uncomfortable in 3/4 length bermudas.
And, trust me, I've tried so many products and mixtures of products to get the right shade and natural-lookingness.
The main problem that I've seen with all the products I've used on my legs isn't the coverage, but the color. All the stuff I've tried is either too orange or too pink, and Dermablend is no exception---it's way too pink for my legs. My natural legs, by the way, are light-to-medium with a neutral undertone, slightly warm/yellow. And, frankly, I think the coverage is too full. It doesn't cover my veins all the way, but the medium/full coverage makes it look extremely obvious and unnatural. Most legs aren't as perfect and airbrushed as mine looked, let alone THAT pink. I think medium coverage would help make it look more natural to let a few imperfections show through.
It would be worth $27 I paid for this (excluding the $5 shipping) if it weren't for the color. I might give this product another shot but in the shades Buff and Natural.
Would I repurchase? Maybe.
Bought this to conceal a scar on my neck. Was told that Dermablend was THE best at not rubbing off. Although it does cover very well, it is far from firmset. After soiling countless shirts, and trying both setting powders, I have to conclude that the advertisng is simply BS. It rubs off every time; and is very difficult to remove from clothing. I would not buy this again, unless I knew that no clothing would ever touch it.
I just tried it for the first time today, so I will give an update if needed (and add an extra lippie)
I have always had TERRIBLE purple, reddish splotchy legs and arms due to poor circulation, and it made me extremely self conscious. So I did my research on dermablend and decided to try it out today. Its fantastic so far. Its a humongous difference and my skin actually looks normal now. Ive heard about the product rubbing off on things, so I will have to be careful about that. My only advice is do not just order this online, but rather go to a store that sells this and try out the various shades on your skin to see which one fits. I have extremely fair skin so I had to experiment alot before I found the right shade. I would definitely recommend this because it can cover up pretty much anything!
Tried and tried to get this to work, but alas, no. Even resorted to a primer, and I hate resorting to a primer, just out of principle. And because I'm lazy. I used this on my face and it showed up every little textural flaw (and there are many, unfortunately. The only way I could see that improving is with some miracle primer that has yet to be invented, or MAYBE if you sheered this out quite a bit with a damp sponge, you could get a finish that would qualify as acceptable, but then you sacrifice coverage, which is the whole point of this, IMO--or at least the reason I bought it. I used it down most of my neck and did get some transfer on my shirt collar, but less than most foundations. It is hard to work with because it dries fast and then layering becomes a science of timing and application trial and error that I just don't have the patience for. (If someone knows of a truly full coverage foundation of any sort with even a somewhat-flattering finish, PLEASE message me. I will be so grateful I may come over to your house and wash your car and walk your dog.)
Positives: Decent colors, Large tube for a reasonable price, if you put it on thick enough, it DOES cover completely (looks like Hell, but does cover)
