Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme DQ1

Kryolan is a brand which specialises in professional makeup. I first heard of them after receiving a highlighter in a Glossybox a while back. 

I saw Em (My Pale Skin) feature this in a couple of her Youtube tutorials and was immediately interested. I love seeing products in action on Youtube as opposed to blogs because it's a lot easier to see actual results. It's not difficult to fake a good review in written form. 

I personally suffer from quite a bit of redness, I hate my under eye freckles and I'm prone to blemishes but it can get fairly annoying having to use a multitude of concealers for my different needs. 
Kryolan claim that these camouflage cremes cover acne, dark circles, bruises and tattoos amongst other things. I've given it a good go and none of the shades in this palette cover my tattoo but then maybe there's just a different application technique for different issues.

The shade in the left of this palette is perfect when I'm at my palest. It's the only one which actually matches my skintone but as this palette was £20+ (with p+p) I'm finding uses for the others. I probably should have gone with the trio but you live and learn. The middle shade works when I've fake tanned and I use the last shade as a cream contour. It looks surprisingly natural. I haven't found uses for the other two shades just yet but I'm not giving up.

I'm not normally a fan of brushes that come with palettes. Although to be fair, that's mostly the weird the spongy things that come with eyeshadow palettes (does anybody seriously use them over the age of 10?) Anyway, rambling....Point being, I love the brush. It kind of reminds me of a paint brush off of school times. It has super firm bristles which some people might not be a fan of but I think it means that you get a much more precise application. I'm not personally a fan of using this alone for application because the firm bristles can just end up wiping the product away, if that makes sense. I apply to the areas with this brush and then use my Real Techniques blending sponge to blend(duh!)

Have you tried any high street heavy duty concealers? Or even high end ones worth the cash?
