Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation | £18.00 (Currently on offer for £15.30)
Vichy have recently re branded the Dermablend Makeup Range, this includes the packaging and they now have a wider shade range. I am quite pale as i don't fake tan anymore (im an NW20 in MAC) so i decided to go for the shade Opal which is their second lightest shade. When i swatched the shade and applied it, i found it was more pink toned but Vichy say Opal is more yellow toned. I guess it all depends on your skin as mine is more neutral rather than yellow or pink but i do have a small amount of redness. I am pretty impressed with how well it matches my skin tone. I applied one layer with my damp Real Techniques Sponge and found it provided amazing coverage. My freckles were covered so i was very happy. I found i did have to apply a tiny bit more on my chin where i had a couple of breakouts, otherwise one layer was perfect. Considering it is full coverage it doesn't feel heavy at all, it didn't cling to my dry patches either. Overall i am in love with this foundation.

Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder | £17.00 (Currently on offer £14.45)
This powder arrived at the right time for me. I have been wanting a white powder for some time. Vichy claim this powder will make your makeup last for 16 hours! I applied this on top of the foundation in a buffing motion. It doesn't add any extra coverage but it does help create a flawless finish. I did find it definitely helped my makeup stay put as my skin is extra oily at the moment. I have also been using this powder to do the "Baking" method when contouring. I apply concealer as normal and then dab this powder on with a dry makeup sponge. I apply it on all the area's i want to highlight then leave for 5 minutes. I then sweep off the excess powder and left with a much brighter under eye! This powder is a winner for me.
