Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder | Review

As someone that has combination to oily skin I always have to use a powder to set my foundation, no matter what the season is. I have tried so many powders over the years from loose to pressed powders and although I have a few firm favourites in my collection I like to give others a go too. I must admit I haven't tried many loose powders as I tend to find them quite messy to work with, however that hasn't stopped me falling in love with the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder.

Oh, say hello to my beaut of a puppy, Ollie! *enter heart eyes emoji* Isn't he gorgeous? 

Putting that little cutie aside, the setting powder comes contained in a plastic jar, with a sifter on the top with a white powder puff placed within it. The powder puff can be used to apply the powder directly onto the skin. It is super soft and very comfortable to use. I much prefer to skip using it though and go in with a sponge, but it's very handy at preventing any spillage when placed over the sifter. There's less chance of any wastage. I'm pretty impressed with the overall size of the product too, weighing in at 28g for just £17. If that isn't a bargain then what is? I see it lasting me a very long time. The jar is also completely lightweight which I love but it's not the most travel friendly powder to take along with me. I much prefer to pop a pressed powder in my bag when I'm on the go. 

As for the powder itself it is translucent which doesn't interrupt or change the colour of the foundation underneath whatsoever which makes it perfect for every skin tone. It is also finely milled and doesn't look cakey on the skin at all. In fact, I'd say it looks utterly flawless. It was specifically formulated to be applied on top of the Dermablend High-Coverage Corrective foundation but I don't own it and like to apply it on top of my beloved Rimmel Match Perfection instead. It doesn't matter what foundation this is combined with, the result is always the same, a natural matte, flawless finish with no settling into fine lines.

As I mentioned before, I like to apply the powder with a sponge(the Primark egg sponge is a favourite of mine) opposed to the puff it's provided with. I don't use it all over the skin as such either. I've become well acquainted with the 'baking' technique that has become ever so popular within the beauty community. For those that aren't familiar with the concept, it is basically applying a loose powder over concealer and leaving to 'bake' onto the skin and brushing off, leaving a very flawless, glowing complexion.

My makeup lasts a hell of a lot longer than a pressed powder would do, it keeps it all in place from at least half 8 in the morning until 8 at night but it's claimed to last a good 16 hours. Of course I can't confirm that but 11 hours is pretty good, is it not? The powder is perfect for my skin type as well. As someone that suffers from acne, it is a sure good sign to see that it is non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic. It is also fragrance-free, hypo-allergenic too. 

Overall, it is a wonderful setting powder, suitable for every skin tone and skin type and one that I really recommend that you try out. It is a very reasonable price at £17(currently £14.45) and you can purchase here from Escentual.
