I've mentioned derma blend before, but not sure if I ever posted a link. It can give good coverage over pigmentation/scars. You need very little, warm it on the palm of your hand and apply it. Many different shades to match your skin tone.

I've always wondered how well this makeup works.. I was at a dept store the other day and I saw it at the makeup counter. I wanted to check it out, maybe try a sample, but it would have required me looking in the mirror under the gawd awful lights, so I passed. Ugh.

I wish I could order it. They don't ship to Canada.

That's so nice Erica! I googled and found this site, in Canada, that ships for free over $25.00.

I think that Dermablend might have changed it's formula at one time, hopefully it is still as good. It lasts a really looooong time because you literally scoop out a little bit, warm it on the top of your hand and apply it and it is so thick it spreads far. Erica, they should have samples, so I would approach without looking at mirrors, ask for sample looking the sales girl directly in the eye, take the samples, say thank you and run away.... then apply at home and see if you like it. :D Then order online and get the discount. Samples are also good to see which color works best for your skin tone.

Hi Hopeful. Does it look natural and cover the scars? Although my skin looks awful without foundation, in some ways it looks worse with because somehow the foundation seems to highlight the scars - can't quite explain. I used clinique and lancome ones pre laser that made me look flawless (but natural) but now they just make me look weird. I have tried lots of different higher coverage ones since (more £££s) but just look "made up". I worry that dermablend is so thick it will make me worse. Still what's more £££??!!

Hi depressed,
If you are able to get a hold of samples or find a shop that sells it, I would try and test it out first before you invest more money. I used the product that is in the tub, pre-IPL to cover up acne scars and also as an eye shadow primer and for under eye darkness. (My all time favorite cover up was by Shu Uemura called," Mark Concealer", but when the company was sold to L'Oreal in 2004 the formula changed, it was THE BEST cover up.) Anyhow, dermablend is thick, but I usually use a flick of my nail amount and when you warm it on your hand, you can control the density of it. A little goes a long way. You need very little and it spreads. Post IPL, I have not used much of any make up at all, but if I need to go out somewhere special or a job interview I will use it and find that it does help. To be honest, I don't think I have used it on the scars under my eyes. The divets are deep, so I really don't think anything will help certain places on my face, but for pigmentation issues and some scars, I think it might be worth a try. I purchased the under eye stick/some other products, pre-IPL to cover my acne and was not crazy for it, as I found it kind of greasy. I really prefer the consistency of the make up in the tub. Hope that helps. Found it can be purchased at Boots the Chemist in London. :) Maybe you, Sam and our other friends over seas can benefit from it. Hope so. Glad to hear Andrea is a fan too!

I found these two sites, but it seems so bogus to me to pay to sample a product. This is just in case you can't find it at a counter somewhere near you to try it. One is for the US and one in the UK. Sorry Kiki, tried to find a sample in canada, but best i could find for you was the website with free shipping. In the UK there is also a support number where you can request samples. Information and samples can also be obtained from the Dermablend Customer care helpline number: 0800 085 6947 Dermablend is available in selected Boots the Chemists (phone the above Dermablend information line for stockist information)
The full product can be obtained through the following UK Web Sites: Boots the Chemist or Ellisons or The Garden Pharmacy or Flori Roberts - Tel: 020 7229 4224

Also, here is a dermablend site for our Australia friends.

Thanks for the offer to ship it here and for finding all those sites Erica and hopeful!!! I have so much stuff and have spent so much friggin money... on this crap. Concealers, foundation, powders, creams, etc, etc. MIND BLOWING!!!! A FORTUNE!!!!
