I love trying out new foundations.
I mean, I love trying out most beauty products, but there is something so special about foundations that I really particularly love. Every foundation has a different finish, a different texture, a different coverage level, etc. that it’s always such a surprise to see how each and every one will perform.
I recently received the Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation and Loose Setting Powder which I couldn’t wait to try since I haven’t really tried much from the brand but have heard such great things about it.
Starting off with the foundation, the Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation (C$45) is a medium-coverage hydrating foundation for dry skin that gives you even coverage for up to 16 hours. The foundation, available in 15 shades, also has broad-spectrum SPF 25 in it for coverage when you’re out in the sun.
The formula contains high-performance pigments that allow you to build up the coverage from medium to full and is designed to cover different conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, redness, and much more. The texture is lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy or cakey on the skin at all.
I got the shade Sepia 40C, which is about half-way through the shade spectrum. For my summer skin this matches me pretty well and I found that it gave me a pretty good coverage. I really liked how this wore on my skin since it covered up any redness or blemishes I had and was very comfortable to wear. I don’t have major skin issues, but the coverage is pretty good on this that I think that if you have any concerns this would do a good job of covering them up.
To set the foundation, the brand also sent me their Loose Setting Powder, which is a translucent setting powder that fits a variety of skin tones (the powder is also available in Cool Beige and Warm Saffron).
The Loose Setting Powder (C$36) is a weightless powder that sets face and body makeup to make it last up to 16 hours. The powder blends out smoothly and absorbs excess oil to mattify the complexion and leave skin looking flawless.
I think that these two products are the perfect pair together. The powder also includes a pouf to apply it with, although I do prefer a brush or a blending sponge to bake the product on the skin. I didn’t find the powder to be any more spectacular than other ones in my collection, but I do like to pair products together from the same brand, so I was happy to use these as a combo to see how they perform.
I like the duo and for the price, it’s well worth the money to pick it up. If you do suffer from skin conditions I would look into purchasing these products (especially the foundation). I also like how there is the added benefit of the SPF built in, so it’s a total win-win.
