Last few of my posts have been about concealers, as you hopefully know. I spoke about the Maybelline Dream Lumi (highlighting) concealer and the Lakme Asolute Face Stylist (liquid) concealer. While both of them are quite fine and do the job well, I wasn't quite satisfied with either (one was way ashy the other one was way too expensive).
The search for a perfect concealer ended with this little guy...Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme! And this one is everything I had ever wanted!
"Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is an especially highly pigmented make-up which is designed to correct and cover skin disfigurements, discolorations and tattoos. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is especially suitable for face and neck. With proper use of the Dermacolor Camouflage System skin abnormalities can be easily corrected. Once Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is fixed using Fixing Powder and Fixing Spray from Dermacolor it will be waterproof and protects the skin from harmful environmental influences. Dermacolor Camouflage could last even under extreme conditions like swimming, heat and physical strain. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is available in an extensive range of shades and those are intermixable which gives the make-up a natural appearance when applied correctly."
It comes in a small tub (which is probably the only disadvantage...not too hygenic). The pot itself is very sturdy and the size makes it super easy to carry around/travel with. I know 4ml sounds quite less, but it will last you a really long time!
The Camouflage Creme is a very thick, highly pigmented cream. The texture is quite hard and it works best when used with fingers (since that helps to warm up and blend the product easily). Trust me when I say that all you need is a little dab of the product on your finger to cover up an area. The pigmentation is indeed that good!
It covers up anything from acne sacrs, to hyperpigmentation, under eye cirlces and redness. So it sorts out all my problem areas and I don't need 5 different products for different things. The coverage is great and when blended in properly it gives a flawless natural look. As if all that wasn't good enough, it is also extremely long wearing and doesn't melt easily. It is also quite resistant to sweat and water.
I use the shade D65 which is a great match for my skin tone and does not look one bit ashy!I have had such a bad round of breakouts and scarring recently and this is the only product that covers them all up. You can't even begin to imagine how happy I am to have found this product!
I have stopped using all my BB/CC creams/foundations ever since I have got this one. All I do is spot concealing now and I am good to go!
It does have a few drawbacks though. It isn't too suitable for dry skins, so make sure to moisturize well before using it if you are in the dry skin category. It also tends to crease a bit when used in the under eye area, keep that in mind if you have mature skin.
Blending is also a thing to be kept in mind with this. It isn't a product you can just slap on and be done in 10 seconds... Make sure you use thin layers, dab and blend it well with the warmth of your fingers and set it with a powder. Also, make sure you remove it well/completely before bed!
Kryolan products aren't that easily available everywhere, but most cities have some small beauty shops that stock them.
Price : 350INR for 4ml
If you are looking for something that covers up flaws/scars/pigmentation etc really well and lasts long, the Dermacolor Camouflage Cream is certainly the one for you! It is inexpensive and comes in a variety of shades (75 shades if I am not wrong). It is one of the few times I have found an exact match for my skin tone! If you use this the right way, you will have nothing to complain about. It is the best concealer according to me! Highly recommended!
