Dermablend Corrective Stick £15/$25*
Covering spots or acne can be very difficult and upsetting for everyone, even for the makeup artist. I wrote a post over a year ago about covering acne using Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation which I absolutely one-billion-percent stand by and you should definitely check it out. The same brand have re-designed their Dermablend Corrective stick, which is a small concealer in a tube much like a lipstick so, as well as being magnificent at it's job, it's extremely easy to carry round with you as you would a lipstick.
The Fluid Foundation is the best product in the world to completely cover acne with a totally natural and flawless finish, and I do mean flawless and natural. I have never seen a product work quite like it and I have the same praise for the Dermablend Corrective Stick which is ideal to use as a targeted application. It is a very high coverage for medium to severe imperfections like spots, acne scars, rosacea, dark circles, vitiligo, hyper pigmentation etc. It has a very soft, smooth texture that blends so easy (unlike other high coverage products of the past which were very thick, hard to blend and obvious looking). Like the foundation it leaves a completely natural flawless finish and your skin looks like (perfect) skin, not a mask. As well as looking natural it feels completely natural and doesn't feel at all heavy, it never ceases to amaze me every time I use it. And if you set it with powder (Mac Blot Powder or Vichy Dermablend Loose Setting Powder are my favourites) it doesn't move all day. Also like the foundation these are an ideal choice for men as it looks so natural. The company say it is sweat, water and rub resistant, I say use common your sense in this regard..no makeup will survive a full face rubbing. It has great buildable coverage so you could also use it to cover tattoos, which you should set with a powder or sealer spray.
Like all Vichy products it's suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skins. It's the perfect product for specific areas which you can easily blend in with your finger, ideal if you don't need to use the foundation for your full face and you just want to cover a specific spot or area. I use these all the time, at work and on myself for the occasional spot or blemish, it just doesn't slip off. I could not live or work without it, I never have to worry about covering anyones skin and it's a tiny little thing you can throw in your handbag. It is THE BEST.
