Thumbs up dermablend

i just want to recommend dermablend in case anyone has a bad skin issue that needs covering. i did some major picking (bad i know) which resulted in a chemical burn like scar that scabbed then fell off and left a fleshy like mark. my normal concealers didn't do the trick. i didn't want to buy dermablend because this isn't a normal occurence but i was embarrassed by the scar publically and i took some professional pics yesterday. the regular dermablend was too thick and not a good color match but the leg and body cover was thin and worked great when applied lightly with a sponge. it was more reddish than my skin tone but once i set it with my meow foundation it worked perfectly. it was undetectable and it even lasted more than the 16 hrs they say it does. if anyone wants to see a pic i'll post the side by side of the area. i just wanted to share that dermablend can work if you need it in a pinch to cover a skin issue.

I've seen Dermablend at some Macy's and Nordstorm's if you can't get to an Ulta and don't want to buy online.

I have a birthmark on my face that I regularly cover with Dermablend Quick Fix and it's great. It doesn't irritate my skin, is easy to apply and blends really well. Love it.
