Review of Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation by cytaormina
I really like the coverage this provided as I do have rosacea on my checks and some smaller red splotches. This stuff covers the redness really well, I was so happy to see how well it covered without it looking like I used a trowel to put it on. I rotate between Cle De Peau powder foundtation (LOOOOVE!!!), Chanel Liquid Vitalumiere, & MAC Select foundation.
This stuff dries very quickly so apply a very small amount, use much less than when using traditional liquid foundation. Dot a tiny amount and immediately blend out, movie on to the next area of the face, dot blend and continue in this fashion because this stuff dries quickly. With Chanel Vitalumiere i can dot the liquid all over my face, put the bottle away and proceed with the blending out of the product and I don't have to be concerned that by the time i have reached the last dot that it will have dried.
The tube is not very big BUT you do not need much. Price is very reasonable, $28. Cle De Peau $85 (for one compact powder foundation refill), Chanel Vitalumiere, $55 and MAC Select $26.50, this stuff $28., not bad at all. Love that the tube is portable and if you drop it, unlike the mac or chanel it will not shatter nor will it crack and crumble like a powder compact. Product will not spill out either due to the opening being so small.
My only complaint is that my skin looks very very chalky. I don't have acne issues but purchased both 25 Nude & 35 Sand Shades to make sure I could customize the color to cover the red. I suspect that maybe this may not work well for the over 40 ladies whose skin needs a little more of a dewy finish. This sadly does not have a dewy look whatsoever, it is very matte :) Where it not for this reason I would give this 5 lippies!
