I really have the strangest feeling about this product. I neither hate it nor adore it. For reference, I suffer from extreme redness on my face, because of broken capilaries on my cheeks and noticeable veins and darkness all over my eye area. I also have the occasional acne scarring, so it's really hard for me to find a foundation that can help me cover all of my imperfections while also making me look natural and NOT cakey at all!
Dermablend's cover creme covers everything to a tee! It really does what it promotes! Their lightest beige toned creme is perfect for my yellow undertoned skin, and you won't really need much product to make your skin look flawless! Just a few rubs with a dry sponge over the product and onto your skin. It'll be the fastest makeup application you'll ever do in your life too. It's THE MOST pigmented product in the market, that's how much coverage you'll get, and the little canister will last you for ages. But that's all I have to say about the pro's of this product.
The cons outnumber the pro's. First of all, you'll have to buy the setting powder aside from this because it does NOT last on it's own, not even for the twelve hours it promises. If you have oily skin and live in a humid hot weather like me, think about it a hundred times before buying. If you purchase the setting powder, it'll be more than $50 worth of purchase, which is a lot considering the fact that you can get a better foundation for less money!
Anyway, this product transfers completely! Forget about wearing white shirts or even hugging people, you'll have embarrasing moments seeing the meat colored splatter all over people's shoulders. It also oxidizes, so by the end of the day you'll have a face that's two shades darker than the one you prepared in the morning. Finally, about an hour or so after applicating, you'll notice how unnatural your face will look close up, because it cakes up like crazy (even if you blot it)!
So, resuming: Even though it covers imperfections better than anything else on the market, this product will leave you with an orange cakey face that melts over fabric.
If you have really bad skin like mine, I recommend Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation! It hasn't let me down and for less money it does make your skin look gorgeous! Hope this helps you :)

GREAT PRODUCT!!! I needed something to cover my sunspots on my left cheek (I believe this is from driving and the sun coming through the car window, use SPF on your face daily everyone!!) and had tried concealer after concealer and nothing worked... or a product would initially cover the spot and within an hour I could see the sunspots again. I didn't want to spend $36 for this tiny pot of make up so I asked for a sample at Ulta. The employee was very generous, she gave me about 1/4 of the pot but I didn't think anything of it until I tried it and learned that VERY LITTLE goes a REALLY LONG WAY.... Luckily I was right on with the color because the amount she gave me will probably last me about 2 months, I am not kidding!! It took me a couple of tries before realizing that you don't want to "blend" this product into your skin by buffing it or working it in. It is to cover the imperfection, the make up has to be placed on the imperfection, hence the "blend" in Dermablend is meant to "match" your skin where the color blends in with the skin color and you can't see it. I use a flat concealer brush to apply the product to my skin by picking up the color in a swipe motion then tapping it onto the area that needs coverage. I give it a little smudge with the brush to even out the application on some of the bigger sunspots but you cannot start buffing this on or using a "painting" motion or it will sheer out and the imperfection will show through it. Simply tap the product on the area to be covered and the imperfection will disappear. I did not try the setting powder as I was told that whatever setting powder I use now should work. This held true. I set my make up with NYX Stay Matte Not Flat powder and it has worked perfectly fine. Hopefully this helps anyone that is having a difficult time with the product. Again, it should really just be applied to sit on top of the area to be covered and not worked in. This is an amazing product that has really worked for me and I feel so much better now that my sunspots/agespots, sun damage can be covered - this has made my make up application look so much nicer!!!!

I use this as a concealer under my Smashbox studio skin 15 hour foundation and I LOVE IT. Would not recommend as a full face foundation. I have dark marks and discolorations from old acne and this covers perfectly and it doesn't cause breakouts. I also use it as an undereye concealer although it does set into creases, so after applying with my concealer brush, I just give it a quick wipe with my finger. Anyway, it's worth the money, and its part of my daily routine . Great for any and all dark marks and discolorations

Absolutely love the coverage! Blends very well. Color match was very nice. Last for a while (a little does the trick for me) However , it is oily. I don't put this under my eyes anymore because is does crease. But as far blemishes, acne scars and such, I dig it!

I hate this! It looks cakey and disgusting. Also, I payed $36 for this! Returning this for sure. So disappointed.😔👎

I looooove this concealer. I use this to cover my dark circles, and it is the ONLY thing I have found that does it. I have pale skin and allergies, and my dark circles are super-pronounced ALWAYS. I hate it. But this product covers them perfectly with a little concealer brush. The only downside is that it settles into fine lines, so you have to wait a few minutes and then blend it a little more, but I don't mind. As long as it keeps me from looking like I have severe anemia. I use chroma 0, pale ivory and it's perfect. I think it works so well because it's very creamy and has a slight yellowish cast to it. I don't really use it on other parts of my skin, sometimes a little around my nose if it has redness, but that's it, so I have no idea if it would break me out or not. Try this if you can't find anything else to cover your dark circles, I bet you will like it!

I got this product primarily to cover rosacea but also for little dark spots and birthmarks on my face. A woman helped me in the store so I would get the right color, and from what I could see under the store's lights my skin looked pretty good and I was excited to get something that would cover for real, finally.
I've been using this for months now and I am not happy. After not much time goes by, the product disappears off my face. I do not have oily skin, either. I am left with a look of huge pores and lines that weren't showing up when I didn't have the product on. I've never had anything give me huge pores before! So in summary it does NOT cover. The salesperson did advise me to let it sit, and keep layering it, and I have done those things. But it just disappears into thin air. Obviously I'm not buying this again.

I am a drag artist and I love this product . I use it as a total coverage foundation including my neck and nape as well. The key to using this product is time and letting it cook and then set. I apply an overall 100% coverage and then let it " cook for a good 20 minutes or so..In that time it will beging to react to the heat from my face and begin to activate all the ingredients..After 20 minutes or so I begin to really smooth out , clean up and define the coverage by removing the excess and going for that really smooth, glossy look and feel..I apply 1 shade lighter finishing powder from my cheeks up and apply the matching shade to the bottom half and regular talcum powder on my neck and nape. I make sure that I blend , blend and blend the seams for a very nice finish ..The finish is amazing and a perfect setting to begin to apply the defining lines and colors ...I would ask all the negative reviewers if they give this product the time it needs to cook before applying your finishing powder..I truley believe thats the Key/Trick

I'll admit when the sales rep. came to me and put the foundation on me I was super happy. It seemed to cover my severe acne scars very well, and so I bought it in Natural Beige for $35.
For the first few hours everything looked fine, but as I continued using it I broke out a week later. I didn't know what was causing so I continued using this foundation, as my acne healed and dried up the foundation made my dry areas very cakey even when I applied moisturizer and primer underneath. Needless to say, I will not be repurchasing, and I will not even attempt to use this under my eyes.

I am NW15 in MAC, so I bought this in the lightest shade, Chroma 0 or Pale Ivory. Maybe Chroma 1 would be a better fit, as this is a very pale YELLOW shade (NC10-15). So at first, I was unpleased with my color match.
Then, when I began to blend this into my skin (freshly washed and moisturized), it immediately went matte and emphasized any line or dryness I ever had (and as a 25 year old oily girl, that's saying something). So terrible color, hard to blend, looks cakey and dry, and NO COVERAGE!
what the heck? I must be doing something wrong, because no way would these reviews be so positive. I tried layering it up on some acne scarring, and I get more coverage from MAC Face and Body than I do this product.

it does a great job in covering pretty much the best concealer but it does feel heavy i wouldnt buy it again cause a little goes a long way and the pots still full it will last a lifetime

This is the greasiest foundation which sinks into pores within an hour. If you have combination or oily skin stay away from this. It does not look natural and after a few hours you'll look like an oil slick. There are way better concealers/foundation products out there.

I have a dark grey birthmark underneath my eye. I was hoping this would cover it. I was disappointed, it's no different than a regular creamy concealer. I really wanted it to work, but I finally returned the product.
*After a month of returning the product, I still haven't received the refund. I contacted customer service about this, but it took them a week to write me back, and they told me to be patient about the refund.

Itrs probably way too early to give a review, so I'll edit if anything changes. I bought this tonight on somewhat of a whim...I've suffered from mild to moderate acne for about 3 years (still do) and have the scarring and current blemishes on chin & forehead to prove it. I have tried regular foundations & concealers to cover the trouble spots, but it just screams "obvious & cakey" when I try to layer to cover them, even when I use expensive brands.
I tried it on while at the dept. store and was pleased, but still when I got home I needed an honest assessment starting with a bare face. I removed my makeup and cleansed, then moisturized just as I would in the morning. I applied the cover creme over the spots and sort of blotted/ blended gently with a sponge. then I applied my regular foundation lightly all around it (I either use Mary Kay med coverage or Lancome Teint Miracle- this time i used TM). I then set lightly with loose powder.
Ladies, when I say it looked like I had a new face, I really mean it! My blemishes and scars were either completely gone or barely noticeable! I can't wait to see if it lives up to its claims of longwear (I work 12+ hr days). I can get away with a more natural daytime makeup look if so-- this will save me a lot of time in the morning. All I did to complete the look was add lipgloss and blush-- i didn't even do anything to my eyes and still achieved a nice, clean look.
Several reviewers commented about the coloring being off. I'll admit, the shade selection doesn't look like they cover all skin tones, especially very light ones, but rather catered more towards minorities or those with yellow/ pink/ red undertones. Which probably explains why I easily found my perfect shade as I am african american with warm undertones. It is a bit pricey at $34, but if you use sparingly the jar should last for years. I don't think this was intended to use all over the face, but just for covering trouble spots, blemishes, etc. For one thing the texture is super thick, almost like a paste- not fluid at all. Overall, I like so far and will likely repurchase if it ever runs out!

This is fantastic, best concealer I've used. I'm very fair and use the lightest shade in this. I'm a little surprised to hear people saying it's heavy because as far as I'm aware it's a concealer and not a foundation like some people have been saying. So if you're using it as a foundation (which would be hard as it's so thick) no wonder you find it heavy.

I would probably not buy this again, when I first tried it out I was impressed with the coverage, but like some other reviews I've read, it gathers around the nose crease (very obvious). I have skin that is easily reddened and irritated with occasional large cystic acne and mild scarring (from those) <----
I do feel like this is a good 'emergency' coverup...only. If you live in a humid area like me, forget it. It will melt off your face like a wax mask in 90 degree weather.

I ordered this in caramel beige (I have asian light-medium skin tone). After watching lots of YouTube videos and demonstrations, I decided to get it. I got it off eBeauty.ca, which is Canadian. I'm assuming this product is the Canadian version, not the American one. It works well, and is great for those who need to cover pretty big marks like scars. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't need absolute full coverage. It's pretty good quality!

I bought several different products, the coverage is ok. The color are horrible. I use it to cover a birthmark, it is such a hassle to get the color blended. The color always looks different in certain lighting. The colors are very pink for the lighter shades.

I ordered a sample kit in fair from whatshebuys.com. I am glad I purchased the sample kit and not the full size b/c if i did I would have been very disappointed. The shade Chroma 0 Pale Ivory was way way too peachy/orangey for me. I found that it looked cakey; doesn't cover well at all; creases awful; and oxidies throughout the day. I will not purchase this ever again.
