Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation + Corrector Stick Review

We all know I suffer from pigmentation, I've been thankful that since my last few bad blemish breakouts that I've not had anymore (might be down to my new skincare regimen) but when it's dark and very visible, it pisses me off, slightly knocks me but hey there's more problems that can't be fixed and that can, one way I've found is through Dermalend.

I'd first heard of Dermablend about 11 years ago, I had a really bad breakout, kind of hive like on my legs during my school exams due to nerves and they left scarring and my best friend at the time said to me her aunt used Dermablend for pigmentation on her face but it was doctor prescribed. So I've always had Dermablend in my head for many years. After all the pigmentation fading, it wasn't necessary to look into it for my legs but the last few years noticing the pigmentation pattern it seemed to be an idea.
Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation SPF 20 - Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder - Dermablend Corrector Stick
I got these three Dermablend Corrective Sticks while they were on offer in Boots about 4 months ago. They normally retail for £15.00 each but I got them for just over £10.00 each so after a few minutes swatching, I decided on three. Shop lights are never great for swatching so it's cool to be able to throw them into the kit if necessary anyway not just for myself. Now I've read online some refer to these as foundation sticks or concealer. I think these work well with concealing small areas, like spots and possibly birth marks. It's better to use a clean finger and apply a bit of the corrective stick on a finger and warm it up and dab it on to make it a bit easier to apply and blend out.

My one gripe with the entire collection is, the shade variety. I have trouble with colours cos I'm in no mans land and live to mix so I had to find a way for these guys to work for me.

With one swipe you can immediately see the full coverage it offers. It can be build-able, therefore I work with a small amount before blending and reapplying as much as necessary. Getting more of a natural appearance.
Swatches :-  Top Row Corrective Stick // Bottom Row Corrective Foundation 
When I work with full coverage make-up, I don't ever like to use a large amount in one go, well with any application I find small amounts work better as I said above giving you time to apply what's needed afterwards. In the corrective foundation, I've got the shade Nude & Sand (Nude was a wrong choice, I probably should of gave Bronze a try and mixed it down) now the only area I now have a slight bit of pigmentation is by my nose but it's faded pretty quickly since May but I've been using Dermablend since around June to only the areas that need it, I find it's too heavy for me, for an all over foundation - that's my preference, I apply it with a beauty blender and love the results I get. I apply it around the under eye, down the nose and parts of my cheek - think contouring effect. I then blend that into the skin and set it using their loose setting powder around my nose area and then I use my Banana Powder under the eyes. I have the pigmentation on the left side of my face, which is the side I mostly take my images on. Safe to say I feel comfortable posing on that side.

I'd say these are good for those wanting to conceal, birth marks, vitaligo, thread veins and even tattoos, numerous skin 'imperfections' we may not be comfortable with. I wouldn't recommend the foundation as one for daily use if you don't need it.
Like I said, they may need to look into expanding the colours a bit more, if there are more shades available, they need to make them more available. Besides that, I can't complain, the brand does as it says & for that there's no fault.

  2. You look gorgeous! I thought it was a photo from a model posing in a fashion magazine when I saw your post. I can't see where the pigmentation is so I guess Dermablend really does what it says. I have heard positive comments about it in the past so now I am convinced!
    Kisses!

  6. Girl you look flawless! I was saving this post to catch up on after I caught a glimpse of it on my feed a few days ago. Dermablend sounds really good, I have some areas around my nose which make me feel a bit conscious, maybe it worth investing in just for those alone.

    Your lipstick by the way is killer!

    1. Best make-up face day. Well I'm totally glad that the post was helpful! Yeah totally if that's something you find uncomfortable, do it. I found it's the best way for me to use it as it's very high coverage and I don't need it all over. As I know Boots stock it you can just have a swatch in-store to see what you like the coverage and shade best to suit you.

      Thank you. MAC RiRi Woo ;-) xo
