This looked too cakey and rubs off way too easy. Don't even think about wearing with a white shirt on.

I bought the Dermablend cover creme in Warm Ivory after watching a bunch of youtube videos. On those videos, the product really seemed to work, so I was excited to try it. I bought the Dermablend cover creme, Quick-Fix concealer in Ivory, and the setting powder.
I experimented with these products several days in a row and was very disappointed. First off, the cover creme settles into the pores (nose and surrounding area) in a very obvious and unattractive way. And it did NOT conceal my dark age spots on my cheeks no matter how many layers I applied. If this product can supposedly conceal tattoos, how come it can't conceal my age spots? It will minimize the dark spots by about 40-50%, but since it made the rest of my face look unnatural (especially the way it settled into my pores), that is unacceptable to me. The frustrating search continues...

The product has a big learning curve, it's greasy ( no matter how little you put on), rubs off very easily, it's expensive and breaks me out worse than what I already am.
I have severe acne and scarring. Needless to say I have a lot of redness and irritation.
Pros: Super quick to apply, and easy to use once you have a technique that works for you down. Blends easily into natural skin tone.
Cons: Rubs off Easily, has a learning curve. This product dose NOT last all day, not nearly 8 hours.... With a setting powder and it's greasy. It also broke me out very badly after I used it for a while.
I recommend for those who have sever skin problems, and acne/raised marks that nothing else will cover.
Concealing acne can be tricky with this product since it's raised which is why I was disappointed with this product's coverage at first.
I use a primer under this foundation, it conceals better that way. This product has a learning curve, and it took me a few weeks to get it down. I use a skunk looking brush (common for stippling). I buff in 1 light layer of the foundation (taking straight from the jar I do not warm up). I then dip the brush and stipple in areas that need the extra coverage. I do not apply powder liberally, only moderately as it will dry and look terrible if I apply too much.
The dermablend setting powder is nice, but I think you could use any translucent powder to set, I used the loreal translucent hydra powder - It's cheap, great quality. FYI Dermablend is manufactured by Loreal, so the powder works a bit better (Less cakey) than some of the other brands I tried.
I have tried numerous concealers and foundations, and this one is up there with my Revlon Color stay for coverage. The Revlon looks more cakey, and if you have issues with your skin can be more difficult to apply.
Revlon Color stay is recommended for those who want a weekend warrior makeup. Something that will last ALL day - all night and not budge. I don't like Revlon Color stay because of the time it takes to apply, the need to quickly apply and it is more difficult to blend quickly and easily. Revlon Colorstay is also great if you have to swim... It's not waterproof but it's VERY resistant to water. I have never worried about my makeup when I wear revlon colorstay.
For quick uh oh moment use, go with the Dermablend Cover creme.
I no longer use it, I now use everyday minerals with a flat top brush. I get enough coverage and it doesn't break my face out.

It's a thick foundation, but somehow doesn't actually cover anything. It set badly into the fine lines around my eyes.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
When the concealer was new it works well for my face, but as time goes on the concealer's quality seem to deteriorate. I bought 3 creams so I had a long experience with it.
Also I don't like its horrible smell.
When I apply it in the morning, the concealer doesn't really last for the day. Maybe it's not made for tropical countries such as Philippines.

This does a great job of concealing any flaws. I bought this in yellow beige, which is a tad too dark for me. I'm sure if I got a another shade lighter and mixed them, it'd be perfect. Although coverage is great, it didn't last all day. Came home once to find patches of this stuff left on my cheeks. Ugh. It's possible that might have been due to all the other products I put on my face like sunblock, moisturizer, & primer.
I'll have to do a few more experiments with it. Overall, great product. But there's some liquid foundations that can do the same for around the same price and without the hassle of warming the cover creme.
I'd buy again if I can't find a foundation to meet my standards.

This is my current favourite, I played with Dermablend a few yearsback & did not like it, mainly because I couldn't find a good colour-match. Now I have found a good match & I am putting this as good as my Cle de Peau cream fdn (in a square jar; now discontinued).
The Canadian version of Dermablend, I believed, was bought out by Vichy, which is made in France, and the colour classifiction is different from the US. version, and it comes in a tiny 6 gm. size at $25 (can't quite remember).
I bought the G34 and G 56 for my NC 30-40 skin, depending on the time of year.
However, I found the US. version available from skinstore and it comes in 1 oz, almost 4 time as much product as the Canadian version for $5 more. Ironically, the US. version is made in Canada, but I cannot find that in any Canadian store. Yellow beige & golden beige is equivalent to G34 and G 56. The spatula is used to scrape (shave) off a small amount of the product to be deposit on the back of your hand in order to soften it before putting on the face.
It didn't work for me a few years back (about 10 yrs) because silicone primer was not popular, the twos are a perfect couple, you can mix in the 2 together before putting on the face. I can thin it out as much as I want with the primer, and keep layering it until I achieved the coverage I wanted, because the product is such a blessing, even if I use a bit more, its virtually undetectable, under natural, or strong sunlight, I checked with 2 mirrors at a 90 degree angle & its undetectable.
Face it, if I was given a cup of coffee, too strong for my liking, I can add more milk, or cream, or water, or more sugar, so if I get a fdn that doesn't suit me, I tweak it, you can do so, pre-mix a small amount in a small jar, simple as that, easier than whining.

I recently got into Dermablend after watching a lot of videos on youtube. This is a superb product! This is one foundation I will always have. You don't need to use a separate concealer with this. This cream really does a great job of covering all flaws. I think the key to not looking cakey is finding the right shade. Application can be a bit tricky because of it's thick consistency. You have to really blend. I got lucky because I ordered online, and Caramel Beige matched my skin tone perfectly. (For reference: Mac NC40-42)

I've been using this for 5 years now. It covers everything I need it to from acne marks to under the eyes and freckles. I'm an NC20 warm undertones and Warm Ivory is a good match. The 1oz jar will last you FOVEVER. I haven't bothered trying any other concealer and I'll find any excuse to try new things! Best of all, it stays put all day long on my very oily skin. (It may be drying for normal/dry skin.)

This is the best foundation I have ever worn. It stays on all day (even through Track practice) and covers up my (many) acne scars. The price is reasonable, though I'm used to buying drugstore brands. I also love that it's hypoallergenic (can't go wrong there). My one complaint is that without setting cream it rubs off :(
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Other Eyes: Blue
I have freakishly pale skin. (NC15, though I think an NC10 would be closer if it existed) I am pretty much clear. So I need a foundation that can cover dark cirlces, veins, capillaries, and NOT look like I'm wear a pound of foundation, cake into my pores, and make me look like I'm wearing a mask.
I'm going to start by saying this product has a learning curve. I'm no makeup novice by any means, but after about 5 applications I'm still working the kinks out of my process. It's not the easiest foundation I've ever used, but I think it's worth the effort for the quality of coverage. That's why I gave it a 4 not a 5. It would be nice it if was a little easier to deal with, but as a woman who applies primer/mascara in a 4 step 10 minute process so it's "just right", a little extra work doesn't phase me in the slightest....
That being said, once you get the hang of this product, it is genius! You get a lot of coverage with VERY little make up. I'm always trying to get the most effect out of the least makeup, so something that makes me look flawless after a couple pats? I'm on board.
I use Too Faced Primed and Poreless, then some MAC Studio Tint moisturizer for areas that don't need a lot of coverage. Then I apply, with a super light hand, to my forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, and undereye with a damp make up sponge. Dust with MUFE HD powder, and I'm perfect. Flawless skin, but you can only tell I'm wearing make up if you get about 3 inches away.
I'd like to say I'll buy this again, but since I use sooooo little, and the tub is huge, I probably won't have to replace it for at least 5 or 6 years....

I'm using Dermablend because I had cervical spine surgery last summer. It leaves you with a big scar at the front of your neck, so that scar must be covered. At first when the saleslady put it on me in the store, I was really disappointed but I thought, basically, I guess I have no choice. When I went home I read the application instructions, and put it on differently. She put on layer after layer of cover creme followed by powder and it looked kind of like a mess. The instructions say to just do one layer (or more, but not you have to do a lot of layers) and then to set it with the powder for 2 minutes. Somehow the powder makes the pasty cover-up into a velvety skin-like texture. I wish I hadn't had to get this scar in the first place but now I have it, Dermablend has been a godsend. (The only reason I say I would not buy this again is because I an't imagine I will ever use up the whole tub.)

Ok so i buy this product thinking it will magically make my scar on my face not noticable. Oh boy i sure was wrong. I had so much high hopes for Dermablend's Cover Creme. When the lady at Ulta put it on me I was so dissapponted. It looks excatlly as if i do my own foundation compeltley the same. So Im still looking for my magical conceler that will hide everything. Sadly I guess it does not exsit.

This stuff is the best. Covers everything, including black tattoos. Waterproof, stays on till you take it off. Can be used all over the body, which is what I bought it for.
I don't really need concealer on my face, except maybe to cover up a few little sun spots or the occasional broken blood vessel. I know if I put this on in the morning, set it with a little translucent powder, and I am covered for the day. It's very thick so if you do use it for around or under the eyes, use it sparingly. I usually take a dab and warm it up on my palm before applying, to make it smoother to apply. A little goes a very long way, for my needs, one jar lasts YEARS. Seriously.
I also recently started using it on my eyelids as a primer, and even tested it by using a few different brands of eye shadow primer on one lid and Dermablend on the other....and the Dermablend did just as well.
A little pricey, but worth it, just make sure you go somewhere where they have a good selection of samples. The first time I got this I bought the wrong color, too dark, and it was awful.

I have used this product for over 25 years. I have natural dark circles. Now I am old with uneven facial tones and I guess a few age spots.
This has always been a miracle worker for me. 24 years ago, when I was a guest on the Geraldo Show and also Phil Donahue Show... both shows make-up artists had the "Palates" of every shade imaginable for the different ethnic people they must have to do make up on daily.
They did not have to even touch up my make-up. They said it was PERFECT! I used Dermablend before I got on the plane to fly to NY. My make-up was still fresh looking - like new when I arrived many hours later.
As for remover for the make up... BABY OIL will do the trick! I have been using that for years and years. It will remove any grease base make up, as well as "water proof eye make up."
Like many people have said in their reviews... you need as close to perfect a match as possible. Not too WHITE... Not too Yellow... Not too PINK. If you dabble into any one of those shades and it is not in your skin tone... it will be an OMG moment and you will despise the stuff!
If you spend a small fortune on the stuff at a store like Macey's or JC Penny's and the sales girl leads you astray because she only carries a few shades and forces the wrong color on you... bring it back and demand to see the Supervisor of the WHOLE STORE... not the Dept. Supervisor. Raise Cain and get your money back!
I found my match and I LOVE IT!

this is really heavy. it doesnt cover all day. i seem to need to reapply after a couple hours. its supposed to cover like 16 hours.
i ended up getting something else.

I know that i have written a lot of reviews about cosmetics (mainly because i think i have tried them all); however this one and the smooth indulgence concealer/ foundation work the best for me. The cover cream can get a little drying at times but it covers my butterfly rash on my face (I have lupus) and they carry my perfect shade chroma 0-1. I use this with a makeup sponge for light application and if i need a little more than i use a makeup brush and i can't really afford the setting powder so i trust ing the NYC Smooth Skin loose powder for at home and the NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Powder for travel and it works just as well. I have reccommended this to everyone and they have converted to this brand. It also helps that my sister works for them.

I absolutely like this. I use it as a concealer for undereye circles and blemishes only, set it with some oil free translucent powder and 'm ready! I love the fact that I don't have to cover my whole face in foundation. However; it's important to blend well, to use it sparingly on a well cleansed skin and the color has to be as close to your own skintone as it can possibly get. A little goes a long way and one single jar of this stuff can last a long time. I also like the fact that it's waterproof and that it has great staying power and coverage. Another pro is that it's available in a wide range of colors and it's very easy to mix different colors on the back of your hand. It's a downright shame that this product is not available in The Netherlands anymore but luckily I found someone on Ebay UK who sells it.

Holy eff, I never thought I'd actually find a concealer that can cover up my ridiculous # of moles and still look natural! I am incredibly amazed by this product, especially since I've used hardcore concealers before and they usually look fake or show up as discolored patches in pictures. I'm a dancer, so I'm always on the lookout for hardcore makeup that survive sweating under stage lights for long periods of time.
It seems like a lot of reviewers of this cream didn't follow the directions that came in the box, which is a MUST if you want to use this cream correctly!! First, you do have to rub/melt it on the back of your hand to get it to be creamy because it comes out thick and dry. (It "melts" almost instantly, so this is an important but very fast step.) Dabbing/blending it on blemishes with a finger works just fine, and adding a dab of powder (any powder, cheap stuff works great) will keep it there for a long, long time. Just as a test, I also stippled my normal liquid foundation over this and saw absolutely no difference between the parts with the concealer on and the parts of my face that had only normal foundation on, so that's another huge bonus. :)
Both this cream and/or liquid foundation give you a really airbrushed (dare I say it, Photoshopped) look. Also, despite how expensive it is, you get a TUB of this stuff and you use a veeeeery small amount every time, so this one tub will probably last me years.
The CONS about this cream is that a, using powder to set it may dry out your skin if you don't have oily skin like I do. Also, it does look cakey because it's so thick, but only if you get up reeeeally close, so it's great for parties and formal photoshoots like weddings or what not.

I remember buying this a while back for my half-dollar sized strawberry hemangioma scar on my chin that I've had all my life. I hope they've changed their formula since then because HOLY COW this caused me to break out worse than any other product I've ever used. The coverage was great but for me it was not great enough to put up with large painful acne. I've just been sticking with DS concealer since then- it may not be perfect but it's better than this.
