Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder

Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder, £11.33 (on sale at Escentual until Friday)
I've wanted to try a loose setting powder for quite some time, and the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder*, is a damn good place to start! I don't leave the house without powder or setting spray. I have quite oily skin and I've been known to get home makeup free on bad days. So I'm always eager to try out anything that aims to hold makeup all day. Although there are a lot of products like this on the market, this is the first I've tried and I'm super impressed.

The Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder aims to enhance the hold of your makeup for 16 hours. It's a translucent powder which is packed with SPF30. It's incredibly fine and it comes with a powder puff for application. The first time I used it with the powder puff and it was just too messy. I swapped for a brush and I've got on with it much better. You just dip your brush into the powder and then tap it against the lid to remove excess. You then sweep across your face and you're good to go!

It's made to work with the Dermablend Corrective Foundations but I've actually used it over a few different foundations and it's been effective. It has no fragrance and it is completely invisible on the skin. It ensures smudge and water resistant finish all day long, which is perfect for miserable winter weather. It leaves your skin looking matt and natural, not a cakey finish in sight! It's been allergy tested and it's suitable for sensitive skin! 

I've used this on it's own, with no other setting powder or sprays and my makeup has survived all day. That's including being out in the rain, commuting by train and a full day at work. If you're planning to treat yourself to this, you can pick it up at Escentual and save 1/3 until Friday! It makes it £11.33 a pot which is incredible value for money!
