Why Dermablend Cover Cream is Kat's Current Favorite

I've been asked by various people, whether it's blog readers or others that I know, why I don't use Make Up For Ever's concealer. I've even been asked that by Sephora's makeup artists/sales associates because it is apparently a favorite amongst most people. It is not from lack of trying it because I have actually purchased a tube of Full Cover and used it. For me, Dermablend's finish is just way better than MUFE.

MUFE:

Right after application

After wearing it for several hours

Dermablend:

Right after application. Sorry, I didn't take a picture after
several hours of wear but there were still no fine lines showing.

As you can see, MUFE brings out any fine lines that I have under my eyes. I don't have as significant of a problem with Dermablend. MUFE is waterproof so as a result, it dries up while Dermablend keeps my skin moisturized, which I think is a big factor as to why fine lines appear with MUFE. I even did swatches on a white cardstock and after 6 hours, I went back to the swatches. MUFE felt just like the cardstock while Dermablend still felt moist. The only drawback it the concealer having moisturizing properties is that when it's quite humid, it may fade so a touchup may be necessary.

I hope that this comparison was helpful.

=[ my comment disappeared

the difference is quite noticeable, but I don't think the MUFE is meant for under the eyes, it's quite thick!!! but i have to admit the dermablend does seem to work really well =]

Wow that is a huge difference! I don't blame you for not wanting to use MUFE, the Dermablend looks so nice. :)

@Steph--Oh, it's not meant as an undereye cover?! Maybe that's why! I still think that it's going to be too drying for my preference anyway though.

Thanks for the info!

@Brianna--Yes, it is a big difference! I'm curious about Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer though since Nic Nic loves it and so does Jamilla. I guess that it means a trip to Ala Moana to see if I can get a sample of it from Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus. I wish Sephora carried it because Sephora is more easily accessible for me.

That's quite a difference...No wonder you prefer Dermablend. I've never heard of this brand but looks very makeup artist-like & professional...

@Georgina--Yes, I have tried it to conceal a dark spot. It did okay but find that I still prefer the Dermablend.

@Yuming--Thank you. Actually my mom has big purplish-green birthmarks on her face and this is what she uses to cover the birthmarks.
