I am extremely excited about Vichy’s teaming up with Dermablend. They have created a full coverage foundation stick and a corrective foundation in a tube to be used to cover even the most severe flaws. Dermablend have been producing ‘camouflage’ for the face since 1981, helping to disguise scars and conditions such as Rosacea and inflammatory acne with their natural-looking concealers, but now, through Vichy, I think that the formulations are somewhat more accessible to the general public.
I have been using both the stick foundation and the corrective foundation to cover my dark circles (which have been bad, because I have been being bad!) and can confirm that they are super-sonically good. I mean, undetectable, easy to blend, non-oily, non-irritating, non-shifting. The foundation in the tube has something of a ‘soft-focus’ finish and I used it around the sides of my nose and the patch on my chin that always looks slightly redder than the rest of my face. The results have been incredible. Flawless. Although I don’t need full coverage over my entire face, I applied it that way too and it didn’t look cakey or dry in the slightest. It also held all day in the humidity and didn’t slide or go patchy.
I think that these Vichy foundations (or concealers, to those who have localised blemishes to cover!) are going to be a huge hit. I will be featuring them in a video very soon, but to see them working in real life, on a model with acne, see Lisa Eldridge’s video – I’ve linked to it below.
