Conceal ANY Spot with VICHY DERMABLEND Ultra-Corrective Make up Stick

I've been a bit lazy and taken this post from my old blog, Caked in Make up so apologies if you've already seen it. BUT I had a nasty over night breakout, seriously I was already having a bad hair day, did I need spots too? And on a MONDAY, are you kidding me! Anyway it reminded me how amazing this Make up stick is...

Perfect concealer, how I covert thee! I’ve searched high and low for my perfect match, and blown some cash along the way. Lancome, Laura Mercier, Benefit, Clinique… none of you have been quite right. After recently suffering a flurry of spots lasts year, the search became a mission impossible, that was until I heard about Vichy Dermablend.

Dermablend is the market leader in corrective make up. It covers all complexion imperfections even severe ones including acne, vitiligo, sunspots, age related spots, and angioma, can even be used to temporarily cover tattoos. It's that good it transformed Zombie, the guy from Lady GaGa's Born this Way video...

Sounds a bit severe, I know. All I’m looking for is a good spot covering concealer, well its marriage with skincare supremo Vichy has made dermablend much more accessible, and with this new make up stick, that’s exactly what you get.

This multi use product can be used as a foundation to cover large areas or more localised as a spot concealer. Enriched with an oil that dissolves on contact with the skin’s heat and a texture that is creamy yet non-greasy or sticky, thick, but not cakey. It can cover the nastiest of spots and lasts all day. A little goes a LONG way, I'm not sure I'll ever get through this whole stick. I've had mine nearly a year and it's barely gone down.

It's also handy for popping in your bag, although you rarely need to top it up. For best result apply using finger tips, warm between the fingers then dab on spots. The only drawback is the lack of shades but luckily "nude" matched my skin quite well.

Available online and in Boots stores £19. I’d advise popping in boots and asking for a sample, it’s always better to try before you buy.

UPDATE: Looking for a cheaper alternative, see my review on Collection's long lasting concealer here.

  2. ooh, looks nice. I love Vichy and will def. have to check this out! Thanks for sharing. I have about 4 concealers at the moment, so i'll have to wait until i finish those=)

  3. Which concealers do you recommend? I'd like to add to my collection. I think of this one as my "heavy duty" concealer x

  4. I'm always on the search my HG concealer that doesn't settle into my creases (arrgh!!). So far i'm relying on two to make sure this doesn't happen: My MAC SF NC42 Concealer, just a dab and then I set it with L'oreal Bare Naturale gentle mineral concealer. It's a bit time consuming so I only use it when I need full coverage. Next on my list is MUFE Full Cover Concealer and NYX Concealer in a jar.

  5. I forgot to add (since I just found it again) my elf concealer! The consistency is not best but its silky and glides in so smoothly. It's the single (I've seen the double wand one) wand. I use spice for my color and like it for the price

  6. where online can i buy this product


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
