The Review: Vichy Dermablend Foundation

Hi ladies!
Hold up your horses, this is probably going to be a rave review since this is the absolute best full coverage foundation. Yes, you read that right, the best.

I bought this a while ago when my skin was looking horrible; scars, breakouts, redness, you get the jist. I was a bit scared to try it because I heard from quite a lot of people that it was a bit mask like, well, that doesn't apply for me at all and I do have very dry skin! So, tried it, loved it and probably never going back. This foundation has a really full coverage, a flawless natural finish and a lasting power of about 10 hours. The best about it, is that you only need a tiny amount to cover your whole face, if you use too much though, expect to look like a cake face. I found that the best way to apply it on a daily basis is to use a sponge, which will give you a bit less coverage with a natural, dewy finish. Apply it with a buffing brush and you'll get the fullest coverage and a beautiful semi matte finish. I do need to set it with a bit of powder since it makes me a bit oily in the t-zone area, this really isn't a big deal though. By the way, I have the lightest shade available ''Opal'' and it does run a tad bit too dark for my NC15 skintone. They have, I think, 5 or 4 shades avaible, a bummer, but if you can find a shade that matches you, it is definetly worth a try. If you don't like it and you find it's too much coverage for your taste, try mixing it with your daily moisturizer or use it to spot conceal. (tested and approved!). Sometimes I like to use it over another foundation to spot conceal redness for a more natural look. Vichy Dermablend gets a thumbs up from me for sure!
