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.

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 does 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. Update, ED Minerals changed their formulation and I can no longer use it, as it too breaks me out.

It's a thick foundation, but somehow doesn't actually cover anything. It set badly into the fine lines around my eyes.
