Artdeco Camouflage Cream – Review & swatches

The Camouflage Cream promises superior coverage. Does it work? Let's find out!

Camouflage Cream
Waterproof cover cream for every skin type to cover red veins, pigmented moles, port-wine stains, tattoos, etc.

Camouflage Cream covers flaws in the skin perfectly and reliably and is ideal for special occasions, like photographic- or bridal make-up. All colors can be mixed with each other which means the skin color can be matched exactly. The Camouflage Cream is also an ideal long-term make-up and lasts well even if the surrounding temperature is high. The cover can be light or heavy - depending on the amount applied and gets waterproof after fixing powder has been applied. It is very practical because Camouflage Creams are available separately, can be combined individually in the refillable magnetic box and those that have been used up can be replaced.

Application
After moisturizing, remove a little Camouflage with a spatula, mix or soften on the back of the hand. Then apply thinly and evenly, using a slightly moistened latex sponge, and blend in at edges. Perfectly concealed: To neutralize redness such as couperose or scars, use Camouflage no. 1. Numbers 2 and 8 are ideal for covering up pigmentation marks and blue-tinted areas. If necessary, mix two color shades together. To make sure that the shade of make-up matches the skin tone exactly, always test the shade in a small area of the face, e. g. the cheek or where chin joins neck. Then apply fixing powder.

My thoughts
I am actually quite pleasantly surprised with it. My first reaction when I saw these was the total opposite of how I feel about them now. At first, I said to myself, these wouldn’t work for me. It would look so cakey and awful; I would hardly ever be using that on my face. Not that my early assumption was incorrect, I still do believe cream concealers have a tendency to cake up if not applied properly. The key to perfect non-cakey coverage is in fact applying it in thin layers.

Ok, enough with the application; let’s talk about the shades. I have got two shades: 02 Neutralizing Yellow & 03 Iced Coffee. Both are pigmented, long wearing and provide medium to full coverage. 02 Neutralizing Yellow is perfect for brightening under eye or concealing dark spots around the mouth. I have slight pigmentation on both sides of my lips so I tried this one to see if it works for me. It does cover the dark spots and I am really glad. I tried hiding that nasty pimple on my face the other day with 03 Iced Coffee and boy was I surprised! It hid the spot perfectly. I tried concealing my dark circles with it too but sadly, it didn’t do much there. You can also mix two shades together to make your own unique match.

The only thing that worries me is the texture which is thick, slightly drying however creamy enough to spread. It has an inclination to highlight dryness, accentuate fine lines and crease under the eyes so be sure to moisturize in advance and set with a powder after application. What I like to do is that I take out a tiny amount of the product with my finger and then rub on the back of my hand to warm it up. After that, I pat gently on the desired area. This way it blends fast and doesn’t get cakey.

Overall, I think the product does its job well.

You might like it if…
  • It offers medium to full coverage
  • You expect it to hide blemishes (for 03 Iced Coffee)
  • You expect it to conceal pigmentation around your mouth (for 02 Neutralizing Yellow)
  • You wish to brighten your under eye (for 02 Neutralizing Yellow)
You might not like it if…
  • You apply all at once rather doing in layers thus making it appear cakey
  • It highlights dryness and other fine lines

  5. This is actually my HG concealer for my under eye dark circles. I use the shade 21 which was suggested to me by the SA at Agha's and she was spot on. Ive been using this for 2 years now. I believe with this product a little goes a long way!
    Till I travel abroad next and try this MAC concealer i have my eyes on, I will stick to this one!
    And I def agree with you, applying in thin layers and blending well are the imp points when using this product.

    1. Check out D-watson, Enem and Shaheen. It does have good coverage but I am not sure if it would work for vitiligo. you'd have to try in the store to check if it suits her. :) x

    1. Orange corrector sounds more promising in your case, go for that! or you could try Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer if you'd like. :) x

  9. Yes, this product pretty much hides everything. You could try Kryolan stick too. For shade selection, you'd have to go to a store and test for yourself. :) x
