Everything's Peachy, When I'm Using VICHY* | New Dermablend Releases


Unless I majorly cba and decide to roll around life with no makeup on like a festering bog rat [yeah, my face = 1/10] there's always Vichy on my face in some form. Their Dermablend foundation is my absolute go-to, as it's so effing high coverage and long-lasting; and although I'm a terrible beauty blogger and / or human when it comes to skincare, the majority of my fave skin related products are from this brand too.

Vichy have recently dropped a few new makeup products which I obv have to share with you guys; amid plenty of over-excitement and swearing [standard LLL behaviour!] and that's why I'm here today. Keeping things Vichy, like. Let's crack firmly on.

My first shout-out in this post has to go to Vichy's Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation* [RRP £20 but on offer in loads of retailers at the moment, including Boots] which you can see here in the shade Opal. This bad boy is - and has been for months - bae. I've featured it before in this post [and naturally, all over my Insta too] but Vichy have recently dropped a few new shades in it [aaaaall about dat inclusivity] so to celebrate this fact, I obv had to ramble on about it in this post too.

I use either Opal [for ma pale dayz] or Nude [send nudes] in this foundation and I absolutely love how long it lasts [16 hour coverage is right!] and how well it works with my other products. It's not cakey, flakey or ... well, I can't think of a good rhyme here; but it's just none of the sh*t adjectives and all of the good ones. k?

Secondly, it's time to revisit another old fave - the good old Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder* [RRP £18.00] - a product I know is loved and adored by many a beauty blogger. It's a translucent, really fine powder which sets foundations and concealers for up to 16 hours - and one I love baking the absolute frig out of my face with. It works minor miracles with my concealer and in carving a somewhat socially acceptable shape out my existing face. As it's translucent, it's a one-shade-suits-all kinda situ too; which is nice.

So, we've established so far that I'm firmly in love with Vichy's fluid foundations and beautifully soft loose powders...so how about, we go cray cray and mix it up a bit? Taking the stuff I love about these two products respectively and mixing them into like, the Daddy of Dermablend??

Vichy went there

I'm here to introduce you guys today to Dermablend 2.0 - their brand new Dermablend Covermatte Compact 12 Hour Coverage Foundation* [RRP £20] which is another total gamechanger in the high-full coverage life.

This little beauty - aside from being a bae of 2017, is Vichy's newest full coverage powder foundation that lasts for friggin' hours to banish that dreaded shine / oily face scenario which takes up the majority of my existence without proper product. Packaged in a beautifully sleek compact - with a mirror in the lid and a lower bottom segment to store the inclusive applicator sponge / tool, its packaging looks as great as it performs on the skin.

As you can see, due to living life under the Pale Gail Persuasion at the moment, I've been using this innovative foundation in the shade Opal again. But this pressed powder foundation comes in 5 other shades to suit other skin tones too; all of which adapt to suit the skin 100% with their inbuilt perfectly matching 3d technology skillz.

It's a lovely soft consistency which slurps up oil & imperfections  in ya pores with the same level of enthusiasm as you get with that first glass of water after a raging sesh the night before: leaving zero oil, shine or cakiness in its wake. 

It feels fresh and clean on yo face; leaving your complexion flawless AF. Officially, I'd be better to describe this as a natural, velvety matte finish on the skin which minimises the appearance of imperfections. But yeno. Hangovers and oil slicks are much more relevant to my lifestyle. Relatable?

If you've enjoyed Vichy's other products, fancy trying out a compact foundation or have oily / acne prone skin that needs slappin down [forever reliving that Ben Mitchell from Eastenders moment / meme in my head] then this it the product of 2017 you need to try. Used by makeup artists, 100% mineral based AND hypoallergenic / non-comedogenic / paraben free; your life will be changed forever by this contraption of glory. True story.

Have you tried any of Vichy's Dermablend range before?
