Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder

Summer is approaching (although it doesn't seem like here in Ottawa!), and I've been trying out a new setting powder to battle the dreaded summer shine! Vichy's Dermablend Setting Powder* has been really impressing me lately, and I've been using it daily.

I've previously been using MAKE UP FOR EVER's HD Microfinish Powder, which I also love. I might do a comparison post on these two setting powders, but I'll stick to Vichy's powder today! Vichy's Dermablend Setting Powder is a white finely milled powder that applies transparently onto the skin. Vichy claims that this powder helps to set your makeup for up to 2 hours longer than if you didn't use the powder. I actually find that this powder helps my makeup stay on all day long, looking like it did in the morning. The formula is also paraben and perfume free, so that's an added plus!

This setting powder comes with a cute little puff for easy on the go applications!

I apply this setting powder at the end of my makeup routine, and I find that it really helps control oils and keep my makeup last all day long. If you find that your foundation or BB cream makes your skin look a little too dewy or oily, this setting powder works wonders! This setting powder doesn't make my skin look too matte, and it doesn't leave a white cast or show up in pictures. I think this product is going to be a staple in my beauty routine come the hotter summer months, as you can never have enough oil control come mid-July!

Have you ever tried out a setting powder before? Do you think they're beneficial, or just an added step? Leave me a comment below to discuss! :)
