Keromask camouflage make up review

Keromask camouflage make up review

I was lucky enough to be contacted by Katy at Chemist recently with an invitation to review one of their cosmetic products: the Keromask camouflage make up cream.* (Chemist are an online pharmacy who stock all manner of medicines, health and well-being, mum and baby, skincare, and make up brands at discounted prices). Katy kindly sent me a voucher to purchase the make up, plus a little extra to treat myself too πŸ™‚

About Keromask

Keromask is a cosmetic camouflage cream, designed to help disguise skin imperfections ranging from acne, vitiligo, rosacea, scars, birthmarks, veins, moles, broken capillaries, dark circles under the eyes, post-operative bruising, and unwanted tattoos.

The range includes 24 shades of camouflage cream which should colour match most if not all complexions. There are also four mineral-rich finishing powders to set your makeup and make it waterproof, smudge proof, and heat-resistant.

Keromask has been dermatologically tested and is also hypoallergenic – good news for me as my skin can sometimes react quite badly to new products. Their website also says that the products are not tested on animals and don’t contain animal derivatives either. However, Keromask should never be applied on open lesions or unhealed scar tissue. I don’t have any of those, fortunately, so on with the review.

How to use Keromask

Keromask creams are highly pigmented so you only need to use a tiny amount for most coverage situations. After giving my moisturiser time to sink in (Keromask needs to be applied to clean dry skin) I used my fingers to apply a light layer to my face – although obviously you could use a foundation brush or sponges if you prefer.

Light no. 1 cream was far too light a shade so I used Light no. 5.Β  This was also too light really, but I used my Bare Minerals powder foundation on top and it looked fine. Lastly, I dusted on a light application of the Keromask translucent finishing powder to set everything.

I have a typical gardener’s red cheeks so I was really pleased with how well the Keromask cream helped to cover them up. I also found the cream worked wonders on my under eye shadows and rather red eyelids.

What did I think?

Never having tried a camouflage cream before I didn’t know what to expect. I found Keromask very easy to apply and it gave excellent non-cakey coverage, far better than any other concealer I’ve tried on my red cheeks and dark under eye shadows. It lasted all day too, which is hugely impressive because my oily T-zone normally ensures any make up has slid off by lunch time. I can’t vouch for the waterproof claim as I didn’t go swimming (!) but it was easy to wash off at the end of the day. And after wearing Keromask every day for a week, I was also pleased to find that my skin didn’t react adversely either.

The only down side for meΒ was the difficulty in colour matching. The products are great, but it’s just a shame if you can’t get the right shade for your skin on Chemist’s website. However, I do have a solution. Over on the main Keromask site, they offer three sample kits with a selection of shades for light, medium or dark complexions. So, I’d suggest you buy one of these sample kits from there first, to see what shade suits you best. Then head back over to Chemist and buy the discounted full sized Keromask products, along with any other discounted goodies you fancy from Chemist’s extensive range (!)

As you can see, I treated myself to a lovely Burts Bees set, some foot warmers (glamorous!), and some moisturiser for my husband. A big thank you again to Katy and Chemist for the opportunity to try the Keromask products, I really was very impressed with them.

I have never tried any products from camouflage cosmetics so I will definitely be checking them out! Great post and I love your product photos! xx

I thought this was a foundation at first but it’s not is it?! This looks great and I love that they have the sample kits so you can find your perfect shade. Mine would certainly be the palest! Great post (: xxx

This would be so handy for my acne and acne scarring. I’m actually really intrigued as the shade that was too light for you will probably be perfect for my extra pale skin, and it’s so rare I come across high coverage foundation in such a pale shade. Definitely adding this to my wishlist. Love your photos by the way!

Never heard of this brand, but your skin looks amazing with it on! I get so much redness around my nose, and I’ve got hyper-pigmentation from spots – might need to give this a go! Great review πŸ™‚

This brand is new to me. As for the Burts Bees, I’ve been wanting to try the oil cleanser.

Ohh I really like the sound of this as I suffer with redness a lot! I love that they have such an extensive shade range. I’m a ghost but that light 1 shade that was too pale for you looks like it would be perfect for me! I’ll definitely be checking this out!

I’ve never heard of this brand before! I usually get quite nervous using camouflage creams as my skin tends to look quite cakey fairly easily. Looks like it comes in some pretty light shades though which is amazing!

I had never heard of Keromask before. It is a bit of shame regarding color matching but they still sound like good products!

I never heard of this brand before but I will be going to have a look! I’m hoping maybe it might help cover up my psorasis patches since there is a foundation and it being applied easily! Great post Lisa x

It really does look like a great coverage! I can’t say I’ve had to use anything other than a standard concealer, but this looks handy for those with pigmentation issues! Great little review! I love that they do their own setting powder too!

I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I love a good foundation that’s easy to apply! I think it looks as though their lightest shade is very light too, which is a good thing for me, because I often find the lightest shade is still too dark for me.. ???‍♀️

Love their packaging, do they test on animals?

I might have to investigate this, I always find it really hard to cover my red cheeks with foundation so this looks like it might be a good investment! Thanks for sharing such an in-depth and well-written review! Also your photos are stunning πŸ™‚

Never heard of this brand. But it is always good to try new products. Both the shades in the picture are quite similar to me. πŸ™‚ You take lovely photos.
