You might know already that I'm a huge Vichy fan, their skincare is amazing particular the Idealia range which is my absolute favourite but makeup wise I haven't tried much, only their Dermablend Loose Powder which again I loved so I couldn't wait to give their Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation a go.
The Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation* (£18.00) has recently been given a bit of a makeup over and the packaging has now changed to a sleek, all black squeezy tube instead of the white which I much prefer, Vichy have also added three all new shades one of which to suit more porcelain skin tones and then two others for darker skin tones which I think is great as other brands don't seem to cater to many different skin tones do they. I've been testing this foundation out in the shade Opal for quite a number of weeks now and have been sooooo impressed by it, it's an incredibly high coverage foundation that's able to cover acne, scarring, blemishes, uneven skin tone etc but in a lightweight way, all thanks to it's creamy, fluid formula. I was actually quite shocked at how lightweight the Fluid Corrective Foundation is, I always expect full coverage foundations to be heavy and cakey but Vichy's offering is anything but, it's so lightweight, you can even build upon very bad problematic areas without caking, it has a gorgeous semi matte finish that still has a slight glow to it but isn't shiny what so ever and lasts an incredibly long time, Vichy claim it lasts upto 16 hours and I have to say it lasts on my all day. It's a very wearable and comfortable product to use, and the added bonus of an SPF 35 makes it fantastic for using during the summer months.
In terms of application a little goes a very long way with this, I found that I only needed around a pea sized amount of the foundation to cover my entire face, and I found blending the foundation in with a buffing brush is the best way to achieve a flawless application, I then like to take a damp beauty blender afterwards and just pat over everything which just seems to smooth the foundation out even more and makes it look it even more flawless.
If your looking for a setting powder to enhance the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundations ability's even more then the Dermablend Setting Powder* (£17.00) is definitely the way to go, I do have a very old review here if you'd like to read it but I will give you a quick run down now. The Dermablend Setting Powder is a finely milled powder that comes in just one translucent universal shade, the powder can be used to set any foundation into place but can also extend the hold of the Fluid Corrective Foundation for up to 2 hours more which then makes the foundation an 18 hour wear foundation, pretty amazing right. The finish the powder leaves is incredible, it makes my skin look completely flawless and doesn't look powdery or cakey in the slightest and it makes my face feel superrrr silky soft which I love, I'd highly recommend this bad boy he he.
Overall I'd highly recommend the Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation if your either looking for something to help you achieve a flawless base with a lightweight feel or if you need a foundation that will cover lots of skin concerns. The only little complaint I have is that my foundation actually smells slightly iffy, it has a slight plastic smell when you first apply it which makes me screw up my face and think uhhhh for a minute but after it's all blending the smell seems to go so I have no idea what that's about, it obviously has no effect on the product itself but I'd be curious to hear if anyone else thinks the same.
Have you tried any of the Vichy Dermablend makeup beaut's?? Whats your favourite product?? I'd love to know!
