    "I saw the Youtube video by Golden Roses on Dermacol where she claims that it's the most full-coverage foundation in the world and that motivated me to buy it. I suffer from cystic acne and have tried almost all full-coverage foundation brands but none has completely concealed my acne scars and blemishes - until now! I know that wearing makeup just aggravates my problem but I swear I'm terrified to even go out of my house because I feel like people are staring at me. I bought Dermacol from their website and it is as fantastic as she says it is. The formula is a little thick and heavy like all full-coverage foundations but I don't mind because the concealment is astounding. It's the best full coverage foundation for acne and I'm never going to try any other brand again. "

    "Can't live without this! This is without a doubt the best full coverage foundation for dry skin that I've ever used. I've been using it for five years and I don't intend on switching to other brands ever. The Dermablend Cover Creme covers imperfections like a dream and the SPF30 provides my skin with the sun protection it needs without having to use sunscreen. "

    "Kevyn Aucoin's foundation is the best full coverage foundation I've ever used. I only trust Kevyn Aucoin for my skin and nothing beats his foundation. The coverage is out of this world and I feel flawless whenever I use it. You don't even have to use a lot of product because a little goes a long way! It's so full coverage that you can also use it as a concealer. "

    "Queen RiRi is not messing around, ya'll! The Pro Filt'r foundation is the best full coverage foundation for combination skin. I have a deeper skin tone and my T-zone is hella oily but the rest of my face is dry AF so it's very hard to find a suitable foundation for me. Luckily Rihanna has entered the makeup game and gave us a foundation with an incredible 50 shades range! I use shade 140 and its perfect. "

    "This is undeniably the best full coverage foundation for dry skin. My skin is really dry and I need a foundation that contains a lot of moisture. Make Up For Ever's Ultra HD stick foundation is perfect because the formula is super hydrating while providing the perfect coverage. It does come off easily as most oil-based foundations so you have to set it with powder and some setting spray. "

    "This is the best full coverage foundation for mature skin. As a 70-year-old woman, there's no denying that I've already lost my youthful appearance but I'm okay with it as long as I have my Estée Lauder foundation. The coverage is fantastic and able to conceal most of my wrinkles and dark spots. This foundation is buildable so you can go from medium to full coverage if you want. Highly recommended! "
