In the October GlossyBox I received a sample size of Rimmel BB Cream Matte, this 8ml sample is perfect for trying out a product before buying it.
Rimmel London BB Cream Matte Review
It comes in two shades light and medium, personally light wasn’t light enough for me as it still looked a little dark on my skin tone but not so much that it wasn’t wearable. Just make sure your neck matches your face by applying down your neck too if needed.
Rimmel London BB Cream Matte Swatch
This 9in1 skin perfecting super makeup primes, moistures, minimises pores, conceals, covers, smoothes, mattifies, brightens and protects your skin. That’s a lot of a product that costs roughly £6.99.
So does it do all it says? Yes
I needed no primer underneath as the formula went on easily, the formula felt a little thick but I find this is common with most matte products but depending on how oily your skin is you may not find this a problem.
It covered up spots easily, only needed a little dab of extra product on stubbon spots and it covered dark circles without need of any extra product. My skin looked smoother without looking caked, it really only took a small amount of product so a full size would go a long way.
The matte formula speaks for itself as no shine is left but the brightening action makes your skin look natural. Also has SP15 to protect your skin on a daily basis.
All in all this is the perfect product for combination / oily skin. The formula although thick doesn’t clog your pores and once on feels like your wearing no make up at all. Its a time saver for anyone who hasn’t got a lot of time for make up in the morning or to throw in your bag and apply later. Busy mums for instance or students can take full advantage of this product that can do many things for a fraction of the cost of buying loads of products.
I would recommend this product and I’m hoping they will extend there range of shades.
