Rimmel Matte BB Cream #Review

This isn't a new product by any means, but it's a product that I've neglected to review and thought I'd share it with you all! I have been a big fan of Rimmel London matte face products since I had the chance to try their Stay Matte foundation. Since reviewing that foundation my face has improved greatly, and I no longer need such full coverage.

I picked up the Rimmel London Matte BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup in Light with SPF 15 at Target, for about $7. The 9 claims this bb cream has are:

  1. Minimizes the appearance of pores. 
  2. Evens skin tone.
  3. Mattefies.
  4. Controls shine all day.
  5. Smoothes.
  6. Soothes.
  7. Conceals dark circles.
  8. Helps prevent blemishes.
  9. Gives all-day coverage.

It does look a tad dark for my skin this time of year, but it's perfect for me in the summertime.

This had much thinner consistency than the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation, which is like a mousse in a tube. This product smells light sunscreen and rubbing alcohol, but the scent fades very quickly. It blends very nicely into the skin leaving no streaks or lines behind when using a flat kabuki brush.

It offers just enough coverage to hide my minor breakouts and uneven skintone. It lasts fairly well, especially when I prep my skin with my Hourglass Mineral Veil primer (in the left "before" photo). I do like this product, I just wish the sun protection was higher so I didn't need an additional sunscreen.
