Vichy Dermablend Corrective Stick
Great for rosacea sufferers!
I can honestly say that I absolutely love this product! It covers up my rosacea really well and you can't even see the redness underneath. Family and friends have all commented on how good my skin looks with it on. When used with the setting powder, the coverage remains the same as when first applied for a good 10 hours. You only need a little bit of product to cover up imperfections so it lasts quite a long time. It doesn't irritate my skin and I really like that it contains silicones to help protect the skin barrier. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a way to cover up their facial redness.

Not For Fair Skin
I brought this product after seeing many people raving about how amazing it was. I expected so much from this stick and bought it to cover up my acne scars and blemishes dotted around my face.
I have very fair skin it's difficult to find something with high coverage so I had high hopes, so buying the lightest shade sold, Opal, I thought it'd be my best bet. Swatching it on my hand after I bought it I realized the terrible decision made, it was bright orange, salmon, on my hand and had the same results on my face. If anything I now look like I have more blemishes because of the sudden contrast between skin and concealer. Even just one layer of the product gives off a strong orange colour, not nice considering I need quite a few to cover my scars.
Over all though this has pretty amazing coverage, it takes a few attempts to build up the layers so that the blemishes and scars are completely covered (ignoring the colour difference on me). It has such a high coverage that I really wish they sold a lighter colour.
The texture of the product is very cakey, it's quite thick and makes it appear like you are wearing heavy makeup when really you just applied the product and a light liquid foundation over the top. The cakeiness of it isn't for me and it's almost overwhelming wearing it, however because of the coverage it is worth it. But you must be careful and apply a setting powder after applying it, because it doesn't really flake off it more sits there kinda like mouse/cream products that are quite thick. It transfers very easily and almost rubs off without a setting powder so I would recommend getting one with it, after all this product is for people who want or need high coverage it would be a waste to let it all rub off.
The packaging is very sleek and I rather like it, it's like a high class lipstick and actually holds a lot of product inside it. But I do think if you were to use it every day in layers you would probably run out of product in a few months.
I recommend this product if you have at least a light tan, if you have anything less than that it wont work. The lightest colour is very bright and orange on me, but I do think it would be perfect for someone with a light summer tan.
