I am a bit fan of the Vichy Dermablend foundation & concealer so was excited to try out their new compact version.
For those of you who have never heard of Dermablend - Well basically it is an award winning range of corrective foundation from Vichy. I have used the concealer for over a year now and it give's serious coverage for any blemishes or dark circles you may have.
It will even cover tattoos and scars.
However when it comes to foundation I generally prefer light/medium coverage and let my concealer do the hard work.
But in saying that I do sometimes love a good full coverage for night time or when I really want a flawless finish to my skin.
This is a cream foundation and can be applied with a sponge or brush. (I prefer using a brush). The trick with applying it is to go lightly. It is a full coverage foundation and if you apply it too heavy at the start it can be a little tricky to blend. So in light circular movements I blended it into my skin and watched as it erased any blemishes and redness I had.
I was actually really surprised how light it felt on my skin. I had expected it to feel and look heavy but this wasn't the case.
It dries to a matte finish but didn't cling to any dry patches on my skin and pretty much stayed flawless all day.
This is a really brilliant foundation especially if you are looking for full coverage. I didn't have to use concealer with this either as it covers all blemishes. It lasts all day (Vichy claim up to 14 hours) and if you use the Dermablend setting powder you can extend it's lasting power by another 4 hours.
I love the packaging also. It comes in a sleek black lacquered case with a large mirror perfect for your handbag.
This is definitely going to be a permanent fixture in my makeup bag from now on. It is available in 5 shades and costs approx €22.50.
What's your favourite full coverage foundation?
Until next time...Be Happy!
