Review: Vichy Dermablend Foundation


I’ve got a foundation review for you here which has been a long time coming.

I bought this foundation a fair few months ago…..probably last Christmas!

It was a favourite of mine for a while but then got lost in the contents of my make up collection. I’m happy to say I’ve found it again and have been loving using it.

Vichy;s Dermablend foundation is a favourite of lots of bloggers and has a bit of a cult following.

As a foundation produced by a skincare company you’d be correct in thinking that this is a foundation that has a great bare skin feel with lots of good qualities.

Dermablend is a Fluid Corrective Foundation that lasts for 16 hours with high coverage and a matte finish. Not only all of this it’s also suitable for sensitive skin, is non comedogenic, hypoallergenic and paraben free with SPF 35 just to put the cherry on the top of the cake!

My colour was the lightest shade, Opal 15.

I did worry that this would be too light on some occasions as for once it actually is a really pale shade which should make us British pasty girls rejoice! 


The packaging is quite simple and the tube is sturdy enough to stand on its own and allows the product to drain to the bottom which lots of bottle foundations tend to have a problem with.


So what is it like on the skin? Here’s a super close up of my forehead so you can see how natural it is:


How much does that look like it’s my skin?! I totally wish it was the case, but seeing as its not at least I know I can apply this foundation and hope for the best!

I love how blemish free my complexion is and it’s blended in so easily it’s like a second skin.

As for my face as a whole, this is with the foundation applied to my entire face with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush and no other make up:


It’s hard to keep describing how much I love this foundation, but it truly is a second skin that makes your own complexion just look better. It’s pretty effortless to apply and lasts for a long time on your face without slipping, I do get a shiny t-zone but I do with every product so this isn’t a surprise.


What do you think of the Vichy Dermablend Foundation? Have you tried it? Will you be snapping it up?

I’m so glad I’ve found this in time for winter when my skin is definitely paler than it was in the summer months, and if not, it blends perfectly with other foundations to achieve your ideal colour.

    This sounds amazing, think I need it in my life! It sounds like it would make a perfect wedding foundation if it didn't have such a high SPF!Midnight Violets Beauty Blog

    I absolutely love this too. It just covers spots so, so well but without looking like you've trowelled a load of it on! I think this always be a part of my makeup stash xx
