Kryolan Dermacolor is amazing. It covers tattoos and burn scars and things like that.

Estee Lauder Doublewear covers everything. Leaves a smooth finish as well. P.S. Mailed out your package today Jen!

Laura Mercier (Oil Free or Moisturizing - which ever matches her skin type) This stuff is so pigmented that even a tiny amount covers most everything. I find when I use this, I hardly use any concealor at all. Whereas when I use many other foundations, I still need a lot of concealor for spots. Any department store will give you a generous sample. It's definitely worth a try!

Ditto, LM has pretty good coverage. I never wear concealer I only use this foundation to cover slight dark circle on my under eyes. But it's a little bit drying in winter, so I'm going switch to Esteelauder matte foundation for a while now. I heard many good raves about EL double wear too, I'm going to get the sample tomorrow.

Leony, I also find it a bit dry in certain areas in the winter. I've taken to mixing it with a little Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #2 in winter and it makes it a little more moisturizing. I looked at an EL foundation that was recommended by a MA but they don't have the full shade selection in Japan, and they were all too dark for me. So I have to improvise!

I too need extra coverage. I have tried many products. My favorite is Alexis Volgel Magic Yellow which is a concealer that works well with any foundation they have great foundations too however, I use the full coverage cream makeup from Merle Norman except when I can find the Tashi Foundation Stick. Both do a great job but only with the magic yellow concealer. Try it I think you will be pleased. It works just as good as the air brush makeup which also gives excellent coverage but is too time consuming.

Guys, please take a look at the date of the thread before answering, this one dates back to 2005, it would be better to start a new thread, especially considering products may have changed since then, or new versions appeared.

Then I am confused, and I need clarification.

 

That would mean that this thread topic would be a double, or even a triple thread if I, say for example started a new one on this exact topic.

 

Now if this thread is outdated, at what point do you delete old or non-active or even duplicate threads? And if it's outdated, why do you keep it? For reference? Yet the information is "outdated" as you say.

 

However, I am and A Friend is just reactivating this old thread with new and current information. Is this what a forum is supposed to be about? Contribute new and current information without starting repeatitive threads?

 

Just asking...

I've just realized that the board locks older threads. So I guess it makes sense that creating a new thread doesn't affect duplicate ones.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation is amazing for covering up with a nice smooth finish. You only need a little bit because using too much will look caked on.
