Rimmel Matte BB Cream 9-in-1

Rimmel Matte BB Cream 9-in-1

I've never been one for a heavy foundation, in fact I've never bought a foundation at all! One day... But a couple of years or so ago when I started getting more into makeup and wearing skin makeup BB creams were right up my street. I wanted something to cover but not cake and that is exactly what they offer. 

I've wanted to talk about this BB cream for a while but haven't got round to it until now. Firstly I don't have oily skin and if anything my skin is more combination/dry so I think calling this product matte is a bit misleading. I picked this up about 4 months ago now as needed a new BB cream, like Rimmel as a brand and this one looked good (on the adverts, but hey!). As soon as I used it I was just amazed. It covered everything that I wanted to be covered, all my blemishes and uneven skin, but it did look cakey, which surprised me as being "matte" I had half expected it too. The lasting power of this is also really great and I don't think I can say enough good things about it. I wear it to school everyday and to parties and dinners out in the evening and it works for both without making me break out. 

The only thing that I could fault though is the shade range. I wouldn't say that I am particularly pale but the light shade is the perfect colour for me, and normally I am more of a medium. So if you are very pale then maybe this is not the right product for you. But apart from that even if you have dry skin and you feel like putting a matte product on your face would be a bad idea I would really recommend you give this ago. I have a little collection of these not just in case it runs out so I will never ave to go without it! 


  1. I always find Rimmel foundations slightly orange..y and I have a medium/olive skin tone. I recently reviewed their Stay Matte foundation and found it quite drying.


    1. Thank you for your comment :) It seems to work well for me so maybe I do have more oily skin than I thought :) Also I use it pretty soon after I do my morning face routine and have just moisturised so that might make a difference. And I really enjoyed having a read of your blog xx

    1. I don't know if it works for everyone as reviews are pretty mixed, but it works really well for me :) xx
