    Post Anyone try Dermablend?

    I was just wondering if anyone has tried the make-up Dermablend? I have a large port wine birthmark on my face and was wondering if it would really cover it up. I'm skeptical I guess since it's kind of expensive.

    I think it does actually work because one time there was this lady on it and she has some sickness and she got spots of red on her face. Anyways, she took off her make-up to show people what she got and she put back on her make-up and it covered completely. The only problem is that it doesn't really look natural. Hope this helps!

    I use Dermablend to cover acne scars, and it doesn't do that great of a job. I used some, last year, for legs and arms-to cover a large bruise on my arm. It only made it more noticeable. I get mine at Dillard's at one of the make-up counters (Estee Lauder, I think, but I'm not sure). You could go and try it, instead of ordering some and then not like it. Hope this helps! Beth Ann Oops. It was the Elizabeth Arden counter, not Estee Lauder.

    I've just ordered a little sample pack of the Dermablend stuff. I have a very small tattoo on my arm that I want to cover up for my wedding.

    Hi,

    I use dermablend to cover a small scar. It does work relatively well , but there is a definite way to apply it. You have to moisturize the area really well, take a little concealer, warm it up by blending it on a little area of your skin (say on your arm), and then apply it very carefully. You then set it with the powder. It stays on for about 2 days. I could see that it would be hard to cover up a large area of your face without it being noticeable. There is another brand of camoflauge (sp?) concealer called Color Titration that is supposed to be easier to apply and less noticeable. If you go to a department store counter, however, they will show you the dermablend and how to apply it for free just so you get an idea. Otherwise, check out the Color Titration online.

    I never tried Dermablend, but in my opinion, I think it looks fake.

    I tried the sample pack on a few spots on my legs and it looked like crap!!! There was no way I could get it to match my pale skin.

    Yeah, this stuff is terrible, but then again I have super dry skin. The colors you can choose from are minimal so the chances of it coming close to your color are slim to none.

    Tried it several years ago, did not like it. I ended up mixing 2 colors to try to get close to what I wanted. It is really caky but guess it has to be in order to cover up anything. Max Factor used to make a cake make up that covered pretty well; don't know if it is still available or not. You apply it with a damp sponge. Stayed on a long time.
