Vichy is a brand i haven't heard much about until recently. I have seen alot of posts including Vichy Skincare Products which seem to be a massive hit. When i was contacted to try out the Vichy Dermablend Makeup Range i was so excited. Foundations are something i seem to collect as i have over 30 now! I do like to switch up my base routine quite often as im always on the hunt for that flawless base. So i was sent three products which were the Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation, Vichy Dermablend Corrective Stick and the Vichy Dermablend Finish/Setting Powder.
Before using the products i did have a search for each one online so i could read reviews and i have to say on most websites the reviews were 5 stars! I would also say the prices are in between drugstore and high end as they are not over the top expensive compared to some brands. I have been using all three of these products for a week now and i am really impressed.
This foundation was the one i was most excited about trying as i love my full coverage base which it stated to do just that. I did have to be careful not to squeeze too much out of the tube as it did come out quickly! I tried applying this both with my Real Techniques Sponge and my flat top foundation brush. I got such a flawless finish using the sponge compared to the brush. It spread well and covered everything i wanted it to. Overall it blended well, covered well, lasted all day and the colour stayed the same.
I did also build this up to see what the results were and it didn't cake or anything. I did put this foundation to the test by trying it over a tattoo on my wrist (pictures below) to see just how good it could cover up.
I have never used a foundation/corrective stick before. I applied the foundation and then used this stick under my eyes and over any breakouts, i have to say i was impressed. The texture was really creamy and so easy to blend which i was quite suprised by. I am wanting to get this in one of the darker shades to use as a cream contour.
The only powder like this one i have used is the NYX HD Studio Powder which i used to love then it made me go patchy. I applied the above products then set everything with this. I found it applied like a dream leaving my skin looking extra flawless and feeling really soft. I did notice this powder helped my makeup last and also kept my shiny skin at bay. To test the powder i also used it with other foundations and it worked just as well.
Overall i couldn't be happier with these products. The powder has to be one of my favourites! As mentioned i will be buying a darker corrective stick to use as a cream contour tool. As you can see above i used the foundation to cover over my tattoo as the results were amazing and i could of built up more and covered the tattoo fully. Even though the foundation is full coverage it is not heavy on the skin at all.
