Vichy. I've heard so many amazing things about this brand from various people that I'm surprised it's taken me this long to try something from this much-loved brand. Now I've fallen in love with their Dermablend Foundation and Dermablend Setting Powder, it's easy to see why they are a favourite for so many. If you're looking for a new foundation or setting powder to buy, then you should read on...
For over 30 years, Vichy's Dermablend Correction Foundation has been providing us with a high coverage foundation to give us a flawless complexion. Recently, the Dermblend Fluid Corrective foundation has had a little bit of makeover and have also added 3 new shades to the range, Coffee, Espresso and Porcelain, catering for more skin tones than every before.
I chose shade 15 Opal, which is one of the lighter shades. I was quite nervous about ordering my shade online, as it's not something I've done before. I'm quite pale so it can be tough finding the right shade for my skin tone. Luckily, Opal 15 is perfect for me! Although the foundation itself is quite thick, it's actually a really natural looking foundation. A small amount goes a long way, as it blends perfectly and is easy to work with to create a natural, glowing look.
Strangely enough, I don't own a high coverage foundation - they're mostly medium coverage as I always assumed that high coverage meant that foundation was heavy, but I was wrong! I love the coverage of this foundation, it perfectly covers up all my imperfections and doesn't feel heavy in the slightest.
Now the weather is getting a little warmer and the sun is making itself known more frequently, it's nice to wear a foundation with a SPF of 35. It's great to know that your face is protected throughout the day, it's a great addition to an already, fantastic foundation.
A setting powder isn't a product I've ever used before. Sure, I've used powders, but nothing like this, therefore I was so excited to give it a try! The Dermablend Setting Powder is something I never knew I needed in my life, forming a protective layer on my skin, it sets my Dermablend Correction Foundation perfectly.
Using a brush, I apply the mineral powder all over my face to set my make-up and I have noticed that my foundation stays on even longer than usual when using this. It does a great job of keeping everything in place! You can't even tell that the powder is even there as it's extremely light. It acts as an invisible layer as it protects your make-up and it makes your skin feel like velvet.
Overall, I absolutely adore both of these products. The Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation covers all imperfection and gives you flawless, natural looking skin - it's going to be a favourite of mine for a long time! The Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder is a fabulous companion, used to set your make-up and protect your face, the setting powder it's a miracle worker!
