I have been using this face combination for a very long time now, and i thought, why don't i just give these a review since this has been my go-to combo for every day wear. So first of all, this Dermablend range is PERFECT for people who have acne prone and oily skin (aka me) because it is non-comedogenic which basically means it doesn't clog your pores and cause breakouts. It is also paraben free and hypoallergenic. 

The Vichy Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation (£20) is great for every day wear because it isn't as bad for your skin as other foundations which aren't non-comedogenic. It gives enough coverage to cover up mild acne and any imperfections without looking too thick or sometimes i use it when i just don't want to wear a foundation which is more likely to cause breakouts. This foundation has also got SPF 35 which is just great! However, these foundations don't come in a variety of shades and most of the shades are pink toned too which isn't ideal. I have mine in the shade '15 Opal' which can be a tad bit too pink on me sometimes since i have more olive toned skin but it isn't that bad to the point where i cannot wear it.

Next up, the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder (£18) prolongs the wearability of the Dermablend foundations which makes these the perfect duo. Of course, it is nowhere near as good as the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder which i talked about here, but it works well too. This powder is great for baking, however i find that using a setting spray is beneficial after baking for too long with this powder becuase it can leave white residues. I like using the Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray or the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray after. However, the powder does leave your skin feeling smooth and soft aside from the colour residue. The powder itself has a thin and soft texture too.

Overall, i think for the price of it, this is a good foundation compared to others you may find in the drugstore! I have repurchased this duo before and it's almost always got some sort of promotion at Boots.

Let me know if you've tried this combination and what you think of it!
