DERMABLEND FLAWLESS CREATOR FOUNDATION - REVIEW

Come winter and my dry skin gets drier. So I am always on the look out for both skin care and make up, which help me address that problem. I recently tried out a few new beauty products, in conjunction with each other. So I thought of penning down my thoughts about them, in case any of you were struggling with dry skin too. It was Dermablend Flawless Creator Foundation, along with Skinceuticals Hylaronic Acid Intensifier and Skinceuticals

Christmas is almost knocking on the door, and the party invites at this time of the year, are multiple. I want to look myself, and not cakey when I use make up. And dry skin, if not addressed with proper skin care, can make a lot of make up look cakey.

My skin does very well with Hylaronic Acid. So whenever I come across a product which claims to have hylaronic acid, I am interested to try it out. Skinceuticals Hylaronic Acid Intensifer is a multicorrectional serum. It boots the skin's hylaronic acid levels by 30%. It provides long lasting hydration which improves the skin's texture. I used a few drops on my face, after I had cleansed and dried it. I let it soak in for a few minutes, before I proceeded to the rest of my skin care and make up.
I followed it up with Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore. Its an anti ageing moisturizer, which refills cellular lipids, and nourishes dry skin. I do follow a basic anti ageing skin care regimen, but its nightly. So it was quite a change trying out an anti ageing product which I could use during the day, below my make up. it can be used on any type of skin, even including sensitive skin. Its paraben and dye free, and is lightweight with a fast absorbing texture.

                                       
Finally it was time to try out the new foundation. Dermablend Flawless Creator Foundation, can be used by itself as a foundation or mixed in with skin care. It claims to be Blendable, Buildable and Customizable. Its water free and oil free, and contains 33% liquid make up pigments. I was sent in the shade 30N . I do have warm undertones, but can carry off neutral undertones for some shades too, especially in Winter, when I am so pale.

You can use these foundation drops, to create your own custom coverage. Use 1 drop for minimum coverage and 4 drops for maximum coverage. The foundation is very pigmented. The shade wasn't a perfect match, but it was close. I would like to try out their warmer toned shades too, to get my perfect shade match. I had used it over the serum and moisturizer. The foundation's claims of being blendable, is something debatable. I had to use a flat foundation brush and then a damp Beauty Blender , to get the finish I wanted. It was a bit chalky when I first started applying it. However, once it was all blended(which did take some time), I loved the finish. It did not stick to my dry patches or look cakey at all. It photographed well, and did not have a flashback. Those are brownie points in my opinion, when it comes to foundation. I also tried it out another day, by mixing it with the moisturizer, and creating my custom tinted moisturizer. I think it worked better, if you mixed it in with the moisturizer. Then it was easier to blend, and I liked the light coverage it provided. Very apt for daily school runs. Overall, its a good product, I would probably buy it again.
