I don't know about you but a setting powder is essential in my daily make up routine, however... finding the perfect one is hard, they're either too powdery where you can see visible powder on the skin, they can sometimes make your face look really flat or even cakey and generally they aren't that long lasting on me. But now all my prayers have been answered after finding this little gem, the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder*!!!
The Vichy Dermabland Setting Powder* is an extremely finely milled powder that comes in a translucent universal shade. It's a powder than can either be used just to set your foundation into place or your entire make up routine and claims to hold your make up into place for up to 16 hours, its also water resistant and can withstand perspiration too, sounds pretty good right.
The 28g of finely milled setting powder comes in a nice sturdy plastic jar with a secure screw lid, the setting powder also comes complete with a nice little powder puff which I think is a nice little touch. The one thing I always worry about with loose powders is I can find them to be slightly messy and uncontrollable, however in the Vichy Setting Powders packaging their are only a small amount of holes for the product to come out that are clustered together meaning less chance of mess, yippee!!!
The way I like to use the setting powder is by tapping some of the powder out into the jar lid and then using either my Flat Top Kabuki style brush or my Real Techniques big powder brush to pick up the powder, I then push the powder into my skin to set all my make up into place and slightly buff over the skin too for that flawless effect, alternatively you could use the powder puff provided to push the powder over the skin and then use a brush to buff into the skin, both way work the same to be honest, its just about what works best for you and what you prefer.
The finish the powder leaves is incredible, its makes my skin look completely flawless and buffs away imperfections, with no visible shine or oiliness throughout the whole day, my foundation and make up last so much longer, it doesn't look powdery or cakey in the slightest and it makes my face feel superrrr soft. I also love the fact that as its translucent is doesn't change the shade of your foundation or any of your other base make up.
Overall I'm super impressed with Vichy Dermablend's offering and can honestly say I've never tried any setting powders before with such good results.
The Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder is available online on the Escentual website for £16.00, you can also find some other great Vichy Dermablend products there too.
Have you tried any of the Vichy Dermablend range??? I'd love to know.
