Now – 5 months later – I’ve undoubtedly grown to like it! With a couple of suggestions and tips it actually even turns into a little bit miracle employee and I’m here to inform you what steps you have to preserve in mind.

A few months ago this basis has been throughout my Instagram feed always perfectly put in scene which made me extremely curious to attempt it myself. Sadly there are many fakes being sold and I used to be uncertain where to order from. As soon as I came upon that it was sold directly in Switzerland on I immediately had to have it.

As I’ve seen and read in all places how intense the coverage is I started out with a tiny amount of foundation once I first applied it. As you can see – my “tiny” quantity was still waay to much product!

Looking at my skin from a distance it appeared completely flawless; however once I checked out it closely it appeared extraordinarily cakey! To use it I used the Buffing Brush by Real Strategies which turned out to be a huge mistake since that brush didn’t really work out with the thick texture of the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation. I wasn’t able to make it look anywhere close to pure-looking.

Since then I have experimented loads with this basis and I’m finally ready to share some suggestions and tips making it look really natural with out shedding the great coverage.

The brand Dermacol

Dermacol is a Czech model which was truly based back in the 60ies. The merchandise had been originally created for the film factory Barrandov Studio in Prague. Since everybody desires to look flawless in films and pictures the Dermacol foundation Make-up Cover Foundation accommodates 50% pigments which makes it so high coverage.

Price Point

On it retails for CHF 20.00.

Within the US it really varies from seller to vendor however it mostly retails for about 15$. Watch out for those who discover it for lots cheaper, there are such a lot of faux ones sold.

15$ could appear a bit steep however in case you consider how little product you actually use it is so price it!

Shade selection

It it all the time form of hard for me to discover a good shade match for my really pale skin wih a neutral to yellow undertone. I’ve picked up the shade 208, which luckily turned out to be pale sufficient for me. Back in July it was even too light for me however now it matches me perfectly.

The shade selection isn’t too bad on the whole however it undoubtedly lacks some really deep shades and in addition some yellow/olive undertones.


The inspiration is available in a golden “toothpaste-trying” tube. I truly really just like the packaging. It’s great for journey since it’s small, helpful and never fragile.
