Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder | Review

Hi guys!

Over the last few months i have really got back into the swing of things beauty wise and lets just say that my bank account has had a bit of a hammering from Feel Unique, Look Fantastic and Boots! On one of my recent online binges i placed an order for the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder. I was on the lookout for a new setting powder and having tried Vichy products in the past and being impressed, i decided to buy it and see how it performed. It also helped that their was 33% off the product at the time on Feel Unique!

In the past i have been loyal to the good old Rimmel Translucent Setting Pressed powder that we all know and love,  however i was very curious to see how a loose setting powder would compare. As usual, i received my order quickly from Feel Unique and couldn't wait to try the bits out that i had ordered.

The product comes packaged in a standard cardboard box (excuse the tatty packaging, its been sitting in my drawer awaiting photographs for a while) and the product itself is housed in a hard plastic round container with a screw lid. Once the lid is unscrewed and removed, there is a sieve top piece which helps to disperse just enough product for you to use. Just before using this product, i usually tip the product upside down for a second which allows a small amount of product to be dispersed onto the sieve section. I then swirl my brush (usually a stippling brush as this picks up just the right amount of product) into the sieve top piece, then remove an excess in the lid by tapping my brush. Then i find that i have just enough product to set my t-zone area and any other parts that i need to set. I can see that this product is going to last a long time as you only need to use a small amount in order to set your base.

Its worth noting that this product is transparent and totally undetectable once applied. It simply sets your make up without interrupting your base and helps to mattify your skin slightly. I had hoped that this product would help keep my oily skin at bay, and whilst it does a good job until around 1pm, i do find that i have to pop on some pressed powder at around 1pm ish. When i am doing a quick touch up, i find that the powder has set my make up really well and everything is pretty much intact.

The one negative about this product is that it can be a little messy to use. If you are after a quick powder to use to set your make up, this probably isn't for you but if you have a bit more time to use the product, then it really is great. If i have ten minutes spare in the morning, i always pop some of this on as i find it really helps to set my make up and ensures that nothing slides about.  

I'm really glad that i bit the bullet and bought this product as it will last me for quite a while and i'm really impressed with it. Considering the longevity and results of this product, i think that the £17 price tag is very fair and its still on offer at Feel Unique if you fancy a bit of a bargain - link is below and no, this is not sponsored/affiliated! If you are on the lookout for an invisible, weightless powder which will help set your make up then i'd really recommend giving this ago.
