Rimmel BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup [Review & Swatches]

Saturday, August 3, 2013

BB Creams undoubtedly a most coveted product for 2013 and I've had a chance to try out a couple of BB Creams lately this year and Rimmel BB Cream is one of them which has 9-in-1 function to perform. Let's find out what it has in store.

My Verdict 

 Rimmel BB Cream has got a lot of mixed reviews. For some it's great and for some it's worst drugstore BB cream. You'll get to know why in detail below. Rimmel BB Cream comes in a 30ml squeezable tube which makes it travel friendly. I've got it into shade light which obviously is quite light for my NC35 skintone (for reference). It gives light to medium coverage whilst concealing minor spots and and blemishes but I didn't notice that it minimizes the appearance of my pores. It won't cover up those nasty acne scars or blemishes and dark circles at all, for that you need to use separate concealer to conceal them which is quite normal as this is BB Cream. If you are a starter or a newbie in makeup the consistency is going to be a bit bothersome for you as it has quite thick consistency like foundation which means it dries up fairly quickly so be sure to apply it on one part of a face and blends quickly before it dries up. Be sure to buff it out evenly on one part before by using a buffing brush as blending it.

As soon I applied it I was highly hoping it's going to make my skin oil slick (like all BB Creams do except my Meilleurs BB Creme) within a minute or two cause of it's moisturizing properties but surprisingly it didn't. Initially it gives a soft matte finish but within two hours massive shine starts peeking through via my T-zone and by the third hour by my whole face starts shining massively even after dusting off setting powder after application. However, if you've extremely dry skin you definitely need to moisturize your face prior it's application because it tend to highlight dry patches which are unforgivable and proves how it fails to deliver it's moisture part. The good part is, it hasn't broke me out like other Rimmel foundations and by having SPF 25 in it makes it ideal for day time but for my I'd prefer to go for higher SPF product for full sun-exposure (in Dubai you can't really get along with SPF 25 only). Thanks a heaven this came un-scented unlike other Rimmel products.

 People having normal to combination skin going to love it for it's beneficial properties and by giving a semi-matte finish rather giving a stark matte face. But if you'r someone having oily or extremely dry skin this probably a miss for you. Shade range is however very narrow.

Overall, for oilies like me it's going to be a big miss but to be honest whilst you are wearing it, you don't feel like you are wearing anything on your face that proves how light weighted it is and seems so natural after application but don't forget to moisturize your face prior application and use buffing brush to blend it out nicely and dust it off with your translucent or mattafying powder.
