L'Oréal had kindly sent me the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation quite some time ago, and I had never gotten around to reviewing it because it hadn't been a product that I had reached for until now. Foundation is not something I ever wear, full stop. In general I prefer a good tinted moisturiser, BB or CC cream, because I find the formulas a lot lighter and the coverage natural. I also find that I only ever want to apply foundation when I feel as if I'm having an awful skin day. The Vichy Dermablend Foundation comes in 11 shades and is a high coverage, long-hold foundation suitable for minor to moderate skin concerns including acne and blemishes, dark circles, rosacea, tattoos and scars. It claims to have 24-hour hydration, lasts up to 16 hours, has SPF 35 and is paraben free and hypoallergenic. 

I definitely find this foundation high coverage, but it's formula is breathable and not cakey or heavy on the skin. It's buildable, easy to distribute and blend. Occasionally, I can find that this can give me too much coverage, even when I use a teeny tiny bit. This is most likely because I'm more suited toward lighter formulas. I don't suffer with major skin concerns, other than a few blemishes and redness, which is why I can find the coverage a bit too strong for me. However, I would certainly recommend this if you do suffer with certain skin conditions and want an easy foundation to use, that will treat areas of concern.

I'm not entirely sure what the 24-hour hydration is, because this girl does not wear her foundation for 24 hours, but I have noticed that it's not a foundation that is overly drying or sticky. Perhaps, I'm not applying Vichy properly, but the lasting power can really vary. I remember wearing this once on a night out, a very long time ago and it had lasted from night till morning, effortlessly. Other times, it doesn't seem to stay on for a full day. I personally don't mind this, but this is something to consider before purchasing ( although all skin types are different, and this may not happen to you ).

I'm in the shade 25 Nude, and you get 30ml for £20. You can purchase the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation from most places such as Superdrug and Boots. Overall, I do really enjoy wearing this from time to time, despite its lasting power. It's definitely a foundation suited for more troublesome skin types and therefore, I wouldn't recommend if you want a softer, more natural or lighter coverage.

Thanks again L'Oréal for getting in touch with me!
