Vichy Dermablend Foundation review*

Before Christmas I was given the opportunity to review the new and improved Vichy Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation setting powder.
I've already been using Vichy Dermablend for about a year but I'd always worried that I'd selected the wrong shade. The shade that I had originally been using was Nude but I was finding that it was a little too dark for me and it gave me a bit of an orange tinge. So this time I picked OPAL which is a lighter shade that suits my skin tone a lot better. As the foundation is full coverage you don't need to apply a lot, a pea size amount is usually enough for me.

The Corrective Fluid Foundation is now available in 8 shades and has had a very sleek makeover! The high concentration of pigments provide better coverage than normal foundation but maintain an ultra blendable texture for flawless, natural results. Perfect for even the most sensitive skin, it provides 24 hour hydration, is long lasting (upto 16 hours!) and has SPF 35 sun protection.

What originally interested me in Dermablend last year was the fact that the foundation helps to conceal uneven skin tone, dark circles, redness, scarring, spots, acne scars etc. As I've mentioned previously, I suffer with Acne and have done since I was a teenager. I'd never found a foundation that concealed my blemishes but also hydrates my skin until I tried Dermablend. Application is better with a blending brush but is just as effective if applied with fingertips if you're in rush.

To finish my make up off I've also been using the Vichy setting powder which ensures my foundation lasts for longer. As I have combination skin I find I get oily in places so by using the setting powder it minimises the oil production. The setting powder is translucent but you only need a very light dusting to finish your look off. After using the lighter shade of Vichy Dermablend Foundation I am even more impressed than I was previously, my makeup looks more natural and my skin feels better.
Have you used any products from the Dermablend range?
