Dermacol Make-Up Cowl Basis Overview

After first making use of it throughout my summer trip I didn’t understand the hype about this basis at all.

Now – 5 months later – I have undoubtedly grown to like it! With just a few ideas and methods it actually even turns into a bit miracle worker and I’m here to inform you what steps you need to maintain in mind.

Just a few months ago this basis has been throughout my Instagram feed always perfectly put in scene which made me extraordinarily curious to strive it myself. Sadly there are many fakes being sold and I was uncertain where to order from. As quickly as I found out that it was sold directly in Switzerland on I instantly had to have it.

As I’ve seen and read everywhere how intense the protection is I started out with a tiny amount of foundation after I first utilized it. As you possibly can see – my “tiny” amount was still waay to much product!

Taking a look at my skin from a distance it regarded completely flawless; but after I checked out it carefully it seemed extraordinarily cakey! To use it I used the Buffing Brush by Real Methods 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 anyplace near pure-looking.

Since then I have experimented lots with this basis and I’m lastly ready to share some ideas and tricks making it look really pure with out dropping the great coverage.

The brand Dermacol

Dermacol is a Czech brand which was truly based back in the 60ies. The products had been initially created for the film factory Barrandov Studio in Prague. Since everybody needs to look flawless in films and pictures the Dermacol Make-up Cover Basis comprises 50% pigments which makes it so high coverage.

Price Point

On it retails for CHF 20.00.

Within the US it really varies from vendor to seller however it mostly retails for about 15$. Be careful in case you discover it for a lot cheaper, there are such a lot of pretend ones sold.

15$ may seem slightly steep however should you consider how little product you truly use it is so worth it!

Shade choice

It it at all times sort of hard for me to find a good shade match for my really pale skin wih a impartial 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 but now it fits me perfectly.

The shade choice isn’t too bad typically but it surely definitely lacks some really deep shades and also some yellow/olive undertones.


The muse comes in a golden “toothpaste-wanting” tube. I actually really like the packaging. It is nice for travel since it’s small, helpful and never fragile.
