I finally found a foundation that will stay on my skin longer than 1 hour:) Vichy Dermablend Corrective fluid foundation has an awesome coverage but at the same time is surprisingly light. I think I’d compare the coverage to my Estee Lauder’s Double Wear, but minus the super heavy feeling. Main factor that I love about it, is the fact that it actually will last my entire workday, without me having to blot or powder, at the same time it doesn’t enhance dry patches on my skin, that I tend to get around my chin. Now, it claims to last 16 hrs; maybe on someone who has normal skin it might, but not on mine which like you already know, is combination skin. But I am in no way complaining! I wouldn’t be able to even stand makeup being on my skin for so long ;)
The previous formula of this foundation contained SPF20, however, the new one does not. During the day I always use an SPF35 moisturizer under my foundation anyway, so it really doesn’t make a huge difference to me.
The texture is very liquid-like and blends onto the skin very easily and the coverage is build-able. I had previously experienced allergic reactions to Vichy skincare products (they are very popular in my home country) so I was a bit nervous, but fortunately I didn’t experience any reactions with this product. I ordered mine off of www.dermstore.com for $30.00 (Shade 25 Nude-there are only four shades, Opal, Nude, Sand and Gold).
This is a “before” picture:
After I put a very thin layer on, using a beauty blender, I went back with a small brush and tiny amount of the foundation only in those places that needed extra coverage.
This is the finished “face”, with powder a tiny little bit of blush:
