I’m rather addicted to trying out face powders both pressed and loose. I can wax lyrical about which ones are chalky, which ones are fine, the different colours and textures and smells. (Oh yes, the smell can be quite potent & intoxicating – Guerlain and Chanel win hands down on this). But it’s always good to be surprised by a newbie who comes leftfield and knocks all your preconceptions into oblivion. Step forward Vichy’s Dermablend who’s finely formulated, fine, white. light, setting powder which looks incredibly like a banned substance* is one to look out for. (*NB. This could be a plus point unless trying to get into a club!).
What is it?
Its super-lightweight powder specifically formulated to strengthen and extend the hold of Dermablend foundations but really, any foundation will be delighted to be dabbed with this gossamer fine dust. Matt yet with just enough white colour to highlight as it goes, this is a find.
What are its benefits?
It’s easy application means that a dab by the powder puff enclosed or even a few large brush strokes will transform a face into a highlighted wonder that’ provides a matt finish. It’s light and micro-fine texture makes all the difference. Heck it even has a rub, sweat and water resistant finish and lasts up to 16 hours. Wow!
Oh and it’s allergy-tested on sensitive skin, is paraben-free and fragrance-free. Non-comedogenic, Non-acnegenic.
How much does it cost?
A beautiful and affordable £17 for 28g. Worth a try fo’ sho.
