I was kindly sent the Vichy Dermablend setting powder from Escentual to review. I'm already a fan of Vichy products, so was excited when this little beauty popped through the door and greeted me with welcome arms. 
This is my go to powder at the moment for everyday use,  for when I have just finished applying make-up. I found this powder to be so light weight and left my skin and make-up absolutely velvety after every use. I particularly like that it is a simple translucent powder that settles into the skin effortlessly. I apply the Vichy powder with my large powder brush from real techniques, tapping a little bit of product into the lid and swirling my brush in circular motions to pick up the powder. I concentrate mainly on my tzone area, forehead, nose, chin, and under the eyes/ apple of my cheeks. I find that this product doesn't sit horribly on spots or fill up and emphasizes creases or pores.

As you all know I suffer with oily combination skin and found that after first application and wear, half way through the day I need to re apply some powder to blot my face. Although this is a great first application setting powder, it wasn't as helpful the second time round for blotting my skin. I believe it would work wonders on someone who has normal to dry skin but not as well for oily or combination skin. Overall for its lightweight feel and velvety touch it gets a 4/5 from me.  

You can purchase this little beauty from here for £14.45! 

Let me know what you think of the product, have you tried it?



  1. I have thinking of trying this out, once I will be out of my MAC setting powder. Like the fact that this one doesn't emphasizes the pores, as some powders are really horrible and doing that. x

  2. i've always wanted to try this!
