Vichy Dermablend is very well known for offering high coverage for those that want it. It’s so densely pigmented packed that it can cover just about anything from mild redness to port wine marks so as you can imagine it’s going to make short work of under eye dark circles and veins. These days I don’t think we’re under nearly as much pressure to cover up as perhaps we once were, so it’s really down to personal choice.
There are four shades following the colour cancelling theory. Green neutralizes redness, lilac neutralizes yellowness, peach cancels dark spots and yellow cancels red/blue veins and dark circles.
There are literally hundreds of colour correctors about – the beauty industry has had a big run on them with lots of brands putting them into their repertoire but the price you pay doesn’t determine the effectiveness. Ideally, a colour corrector should be very high in pigment and yet not feel or look chalky or obvious. The Vichy formulas tick those boxes and did make quick work of my undereye circles and around the nose redness but were just a tiny bit dry looking under my eyes. If you don’t have a single crease, or have minimal creasing, under your eyes these will be absolutely perfect: it’s only when skin develops more characteristics in that area that there are more places for the cream to disrupt. I found them pretty good to be honest – several I’ve tried have been a bit oily and yet dry at the same time but these are fairly weightless and not at all oily. They’re a good bet if you have an area that you want to cover and a little goes a very long way. They’re on offer HERE for £11.25 instead of the usual £15 and if you’re a habitual dark circle coverer, opt for the yellow or the peach.
