I don't normally wear foundation and if I do I certainly don't spend more than £6 on it. I recently spent £20 on some covermark foundation as I had surgery on my face which left me with some light coloured bruising. As normal foundation failed to cover it up I thought covermark would as it claims to conceal skin perfections such as dark marks and bruises etc. My bruises certainly weren't very dark and definitely not as dark as the marks on the faces of the poeple in the before and after pictures on the ad but were still visible after applying covermark fairly genourously. In addition it was obvious that I was wearing foundation and my results were not comparable to those in the photos on the website. Covermark Foundation claims to give "maximum coverage of the most intense disclouration". Now is this referring to using the product alone or after first neutralsing the disclouration with another £20 pot of no.10 or no. 4 foundation? This is what it advises you to do in the leaflet that comes with the foudation. Anyway, my marks were not that dark and even if they did require neutralisation the description of covermark in the ads is really dishonest as it makes the consumer believe that one pot/colour of covermark will completely cover any disclouration even if it is dark and it will still look natural.
In my experience it does neither and my results are certainly not comparable to those shown on the photos in the covermark ad.
Well in my search for the cure for the acne that I have had daily for the past two months, I have tried various creams, lotions and moisturisers and nothing seems to be helping with it.
So I though if I can't cure it I will hide it. I have been on the look out for a full coverage foundation to try and hide the spots.
I have tried various concealers and foundationd from the high street and they just don't really cover them at all really.
I had seen the Covermark products advertised on QVC a while ago and I though they looked good, at the time I never really needed the sort of coverage they claim to provide so I never tried it.
Covermark do a varied range of products including
Full coverage foundation,
Face Magic foundation,
Body and Leg foundation,
Make up Remover,
An Anti ageing coverage range.
I bought the Covermark Face Magic from QVC for £16.82 for 30ml as I like there return policy if you don't like it or you choose the wrong colour.
This can be used to help conceal
age and sun spots.
It has a SPF 20 and is waterproof and proven not to aggravate acne.
I was originally after the light shade but has this had sold out and after watching the videos for it and the presenter saying she would wear the medium and she is about my colouring I though I would give the medium a try.
When I first got this it was sealed with foil which is good to see, least you know you're the first one to use it.
It came in a small squeezable tube with a screw on lid.
I put a small bit on my hand and arm to try it there first, I wasn't very impressed with the colour at all, it looked almost pink and there was absolutely know way I thought this could match my face skin tone.
Off I went upsairs to try it out, I squirted a small amount onto my hand, it has a fairly thick texture and doing this lets it melt a bit which makes it easier to apply, this time the colour of it looked more normal and not as pink.
I applied it onto my face in dots and gently rubbed it in, like I would with a normal foundaton, I also got a little sponge with it so when I hae the coverage I liked I went over the top with this to remove any that was too thick.
I was really impressed with the coverage I got, it covered the spots I had really well, I could still see where they were only because they are so bumpy.
If you are someone with facial reddness but with nice smooth skin I'm sure your skin would look absolutely perfect after using this, I am really pleased with the coverage I have got it has definitely given me more confidence knowing I can cover it up and not really have to worry about having the spots now.
The ingredient list for this isn't too good for the people who can be allergic to cosmetic ingredients cos it contains a few of the ones I know people can have reactions to.
Paraffinium Liquidum, Titanium Dioxide, Cera Alba, Talc, Magnesium Carbonate, Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Benzophenenone 3, Parfum, Propylparaben.
