Vichy Dermablend

As someone who isn't gifted with perfect skin a good foundation and concealer is essential for me. Although my skin has it's good and bad days it's nice to know that there is always a product that can make me look like I am one of the very few that has no idea what acne, scarring and redness means.

I have always wanted to try out Vichy Dermablend. When I first started getting into the YouTube beauty community it was one of those foundations that people with acne loved. It would cover it all and not look cakey at the same time. Fast forward to five years later and here I am trying out Vichy Dermablend for the first time in all those years.
I am trying out two Dermablend products today: the Covermatte Powder Foundation and the SOS Cover Stick. They are the newest additions to the Dermablend family and I tried them both in the lightest colour 'Opal'.

The Covermatte Foundation* (€23,95) is a high coverage compact powder that camouflages imperfections, absorbs oil and keeps the skin matte and flawless all day. I have never really tried a powder foundation. I always feel like powder foundations don't give that much coverage, but I was pleasantly surprised. It gives enough coverage to even out my skin and it feels so light as well, such a difference in comparison to the heavy way liquid foundations can make me feel. The powder comes in sleek, black packaging with a sponge and a mirror. Personally I'm not a fan of sponges -the Beauty Blender trend is not for me- so I stick to a powder brush and dust it over my face. The coverage is very buildable and looks really natural. I do need a bit more coverage whenever I have a pimple and that's where the SOS Cover Stick comes in.
The SOS Cover Stick* (€14,95) is a creamy concealer that gives full coverage to cover the things that you wish where not on your face. It applies very smooth and blends in nicely as well. When I have a pimple I put a bit on the back of my hand and dip my concealer brush in the product to make sure not to get bacteria all over the coverstick. I do prefer liquid concealers, but that’s maybe because I am used to them. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the colour selection. There are only five colours and even the colour Opal is too dark for me. It's also winter which means that my summer tan is officially gone, so maybe these Vichy products will be a better use once the sun is shining and I am back to my darker shade. Both products contain SPF as well, which makes them even better for the summer time.

Both products are perfect for when you have imperfections on your skin. I really want to try the Dermablend foundation, because I think I will like that a bit more. It just feels weird wearing powder as a foundation. I guess it's something I have to get used to. I do love the light feel of it. I hope that in a few years my skin turns back to normal and a bit of concealer and powder is all I need.

Have you ever tried Vichy Dermablend? What do you think?
