Dermacol Make-up Cover in 221

Hello ladies! Welcome back to my blog. Hope you all had a wonderful week.

Today I am reviewing magic make-up cover from Dermacol. I am in 221 shade (atleast I believe I am in that shade!)


About the product:
Legendary high covering make-up

The clinically tested, extreme covering Make up Cover was created as the first of its kind in Europe and one of the first in the world. The license for this foundation was eventually sold to Hollywood. It contains 50% pigments, which makes it a weapon against skin imperfections. DERMACOL MAKE-UP COVER provides PERFECT COVERAGE even in thin layers and is the perfect corrector for dark under-eye, unpleasant spots and skin blemishes. It completely covers acne, loss of pigmentation, post surgical bruising, tattoos etc. It may be used on the entire face or body for color correction, darkening or lightening the skin tones, and ensuring ideal balance. It is widely used as a professional make-up for photo or film shoots, modeling and for festive occasions.

Results: Dermacol Make-up Cover provides outstanding coverage with a natural looking finish for your entire face and body. Your skin will be well balanced and have a velvety matte appearance.

Usage: Choose the right color shade for your skin. Gently tap the make-up onto your skin with either your fingers or with a damped make-up sponge. Apply the Dermacol Make-up Cover gradually by first using a small quantity and then add as needed until all skin problems are covered. (the Make-up Cover has a rich consistency and provides extreme coverage. Therefore, it is important to apply the make-up evenly

It has 13 different shades from light to dark skin tone.

My Review on Dermacol Make-up Cover in 221:
I got this product on a recommendation of a makeup-artist I worked with. Surprisingly, this brand is available in Ansar Mall, Sharjah. I got this for AED 70.

The product comes in a small squeeze-type tube. It is the size of a small toothpaste you get as freebie/sample with a toothbrush or in a flight. But do not judge the size with the amount of coverage a tiny dot of this foundation can give.


The shade number is printed on the tube, with the date of expiry. It is kinda hard to read the print though. It comes with a leaflet for instructions on how to use it. I have a habit of throwing leaflets after I am done reading with the instructions. Hence, I don’t have it to show you people.


The foundation has a pleasant smell, however you can also smell the chemicals in it too.

The foundation has a creamy but non-runny texture. It has a thick consistency and texture. The foundation takes time to blend due to its rich consistency, but when you do finish applying this product; the result is flawless. A thin layer of foundation will cover all the imperfections on your face such as acne, dark spots and dark under eyes. Just a dot, or rather just swipe of your fingers around the nozel of the tube and you can apply it all over your face. You just need very light powder setting as anything more on the foundation can make your face cakey.

The oozing product

I kid you not when it comes to its staying power. It does not budge all day. The product is stuck your face like a Fevicol. Though it does crease around your lips and under eye, it does not fade or oxidizes. A light blot with tissue is all you need to touch up. It is water proof, smudge proof, sweat proof and all other proof’s you can think of.

Since it already has SPF, you need not apply sunscreen prior to applying the foundation. However, the product will be dry and stretchy for dry skin beauties. But nothing that a moisturizer or a primer cannot do. So make sure your skin is thoroughly hydrated before going ahead with this makeup cover.

You have to invest in a super powerful makeup remover to get rid of every trace of the foundation from your face. If you don’t remove and cleanse your face properly, you can have break-outs. I experienced this when I was applying it regularly and did not remove it completely, I ended up having a pimple overnight.

Due of its extreme coverage, I use this product as concealer and corrector for my under eye and dark spots. I also mix teeny bit of Dermacol to my other liquid foundation to make blending easy.

I just touched the nozzle


Gently spread the product
Voila! You can notice the difference between the previous photo and this one. All the s,all spots on the hand has been covered with just that little dot of product. Also, I have used my hand to rub in the foundation. So using a proper technique would actually give me doll hands. 😀

– Extreme coverage
– Super lasting powder.
– Suitable for oily/combo skin.
– A small dot of this product is all you require for your entire face
– Thin layer of application for total coverage dark spots and other pigmentation
– Water and swear proof
– Does not fade or oxidizes
– Does not require much touch up through out the day.
– Velvety matte finish
– Can be used with other liquid foundations
– Too much product in the tube. Can last you for good.

– Does not blend easily
– Requires powerful makeup remover to wipe off every trace of the product.
– Can be cakey if applied too much
– Can be patchy if applied on dehydrated skin
– Slight chemical smell can be turn off to some
– To get a match to your skin can be a little issue
– The foundation keeps oozing out without squeezing every time I open the can. Hence, making your area very messy
– Overnight break-outs only if the face is not cleansed off properly

Final Verdict:
I actually have a love-hate feeling towards this product. There are times when I feel like a superstar wearing this product, and then there are other times where I just want to rush to the loo and peel my skin off. #storyofsheikaslife.

Dermacol make-up cover is not like your everyday normal foundation use. I would recommend this product for people who have extreme skin problems and also for make-up artists who want to achieve flawless and super lasting look for their clients.

Maybe a 3/5

Stay Blessed and Beautiful!
