Vichy Dermablend - Worth the Hype!

Hey Ladies,

I hope you are all well! Vichy is a brand I have always had a great relationship with skincare wise, but I had never ventured into what they had to offer makeup wise. Vichy Dermablend is something I have heard a lot about, the more reviews I read, the more it peaked my curiosity. Every girl loves a full coverage foundation, and Vichy Dermablend promised to meet all my full coverage needs!


First up is the foundation itself, its really achieved cult status among the beauty community and after finally trying it myself I can see why. I purchased the lightest shade 'Opal' and it's the perfect match for me. First impressions of the foundation was that it had a very thick consistency, and when I began to apply it I realised that a little of the product goes a long way! This is a corrective foundation, but it also claims to give 24 hour hydration, which is something that really excited me, due to the fact that my skin is dry/dehydrated. I found on application that it really covers a multitude and glides across the skin effortlessly. I have also found that there is no need for concealer. What you end up with is a full coverage look, with your face looking like it's caked in makeup, a look lets face it, we all try to avoid! The wear time on this is fantastic, with or without powdering. I would say though if you have oily skin, do go ahead with your powder step! I got all day wear out of this, from about 8.30 am, to 8pm ish. Really incredible and I didn't feel like I wanted to tear my skin off toward the end, which can be an issue with certain foundations toward the end of the day!



The Vichy Dermablend Powder, translucent and virtually transparent, I was hoping that this would be my new holy grail powder. It gives the skin a very natural, velvety finish that is light weight and fragrance free. With dry skin I don't normally need powder, but if its going to be a busy day, I like that little bit of reassurance that my makeup is going to stay in place. Another thing I really like about this powder is the fact that its water and sweat resistant which is perfect for our 'one extreme to the other' weather.I find that this really does everything it says its going to do, and doesn't cling to or accentuate any dry patches that may be lurking! It's become part of my daily routine and I would have no hesitation in repurchasing it.



Below is a picture just to give you an idea of how it looks coverage wise. My skin is currently going through a purge from my Clarisonic and it is quite bad so you have an idea of how much the foundation covers!


That's it for now ladies,
I hope you enjoyed!

  1. I recently discovered Dermablend too and love it. I use number 35 with Cocoa Brown and it's a perfect match plus doesn't budge all day. Will have to get my hands on the setting powder

  2. Great review! I have never found a full coverage foundation that didn't end up looking caked-on on my face :-( Maybe this is it
    Thank you
