Review for: Rimmel BB Beauty Balm Cream Matte 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup - Light 30ml more...
Rimmel BB Cream, Matte Light 1 fl oz (30 ml)

I really adore Rimmel London BB 9-in-1Beauty Balm Cream. Although there are many versions of this particular Foundation. I prefer the matte finish. And also in the color light!
. I'm not what you would call a huge Foundation fan. If I could get away without wearing any foundation I would. But as the years have progressed I find myself wanting more full face coverage.
I like this foundations for many reasons . First being it gives me super coverage at an affordable price. I purchased mine at Target. And I was quite surprised to see it there. When looking for a foundation I saw this first this particular brand and formula on Amazon and just happen to be going to Target that night so imagine my surprise when I saw it there.
I like the fact that you can build with this Foundation. If I'm going out during the day just running my errands or what-have-you, I only need one coat. When you want more of a night look, you can build with it without having it look or feel like you're wearing a complete mask. When I go out at night, dinner, dancing or what have you, I will use a secondary coat. It gives me a smooth full face coverage. And it really does blend well. I find it doesn't cake or crease. And again it leaves my face with more of a natural look. I also like the fact that I can get away with using it without a primer if need be. Although the formula is rich it doesn't leave my face feeling tacky or Pasty or plastered!. It Blends easily and plays nice with all my other cosmetics. Also I find the coverage lasts throughout the day or night. This is great because it cuts down on touch-ups.
I would recommend Rimels BB Beauty Balm to anyone who wants their Foundation to give them a full covered look without having to apply a ton of layers. And also if they're like me if they want their Foundation to look natural like they're not wearing anything then I would highly recommend this also
It's conveniently available at Walgreens and also at Target. And I truly love the fact that the purchase price is under $15.

I tried I out the Rimmel London BB Cream Matte Foundation

Now, this is what it claimed it did; 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup with a Natural Matte Finish. Oil free formula 1) Minimizes the Appearance of Pores 2) Evens Skin Tone 3) Mattifies 4) Controls Shine All Day 5) Smoothes 6) Soothes 7) Conceals Dark Circles 8) Helps Prevent Blemishes and 9) Gives All-Day Coverage. Dermatologist Tested. Clinically Tested. Non Comedogenic.

Here are my thoughts. For someone who has combination skin, it did better in some areas than others. My t-zone gets pretty oily and it didn’t really stay mattified there, but around the rest of my face it did, so that was great. In reference to whether or not it minimized the size of my pores I can’t really say if it did or not. I always use Benefit POREfessional primer, and that really Minimizes my pores. Another thing that I noticed instantly was that this isn’t a full coverage BB Cream which meant I didn’t have full coverage all day. I do love how light it felt on my face while I was wearing it, and it really did leave me looking very natural. One other thing that I have to mention is that it says it helps to Prevent Blemishes. Prior to using this product I had clean, smooth skin. After a day of wearing this, I broke out majorly in my T-zone. I am not sure if this is because I normally use the same products and me switching it up threw my skin off, but I definitely broke out. Which is understandable when you try a new product but it has never happened to me before, but I have heard about it happening to other people. I do agree that it evened out my skin tone, which goes along with it making me look very natural. I really loved that part about the BB Cream. Again, I am not sure I can fully say whether it concealed my Dark Circles, because I actually used the Rimmel London Match Perfection concealer in the shade 230 Fair/Light, and that played a big part in concealing my Dark Circles.

Overall, this product is nice. I will definitely have to combine it with other products to fit my skin type better. But I loved how natural looking it left me, and for the most part how mattifying it was in the beginning. Over the course of the day, I did lose the mattifying part, but it also, wasn’t as shiny as other products I’ve used, so it was good in the aspect of controlling the shine.

I would recommend this product to someone who is going for the natural look, with a light to medium coverage. I think it would be great to wear on a day at the beach because it is also infused with SPF 15 Sunscreen. This isn’t a product I would wear on a girls night out or anything like that.

I bought this because it claimed to be mattifying, minimizes pores, helps prevent blemishes, + a whole bunch of other things.

I found that it looks patchy on my skin especially when I try to build it up with concealer and powder. It also doesn’t stay matte due to me having oily skin. It has a pretty decent coverage, but definitely doesn’t last the whole day. It’s cheap though and is more for people with combination skin, as opposed to people who are more on the oilier side. It also has SPF, which is good.

I was super excited about trying this after I’ve seen so many videos and reviews that where good on it but I don’t like it very much. It’s VERY running and drips out into the cap without squeezing it, it has very light coverage and doesn’t work well if you put powder or concealer on top, it makes your skin look flakey, it makes your skin look dewy and just weird, when it gets in my fine wrinkles under my eyes it settles there and it’s very noticeable no matter how much I blend/rub it in.

For many years I knew NOTHING about foundation or cover up. Sadly, color matches were kinda whatev because I was limited to what I could afford. I was young and vegan though so I was blessed enough to skip it most of the time. When i needed to wear something or cover a break out, this is what I would turn to. I had oily skin. It seemed to hold up well and cancel mild redness i havr been through many tubes.

Love that this B.B. cream is affordable & it’s matte! I love the coverage. It has medium to full coverage. I don’t mind myself really needing concealer when I use this product and I’ve repurchased it multiple times because it does the job. I have very dry skin though unfortunately so it doesn’t do very well with matte products but nonetheless I love the finish of this product!

I think that this product does everything that you would expect a BB cream to do. The coverage is better than some of the other BB creams that I've tried but it is still a lighter coverage, it can be built to around medium. I was really excited when I saw this product because I usually steer clear of BB creams because my skin gets really oily throughout the day and this one is matte. I did find my skin got a bit oily anyways but not as much as with a traditional BB cream, plus I mainly used it in summer. It is a little bit runny in consistency but it applies well anyways. The main issue is the shade range, I think this product will really only work for people on the medium skin tone spectrum. I doesn't go light or dark enough which makes this product inaccessible to a large group of people.

This was the first face product I ever had. My mom didn’t want me wearing foundation so she made a compromise and I use it as foundation. It is super nice applied easy and smooth. You can definitely build it up. I would definitely recommend this to someone who is looking for a lighter coverage. Rimmel London BB Cream Matte Foundation

I don't use B. B. Creams much in the winter anymore as they're more of a summer time wear to the beach product but when I have used it this is a great one. It provides the same benefits as it's more expensive counterparts, comes in easy to match, blendable shades and the matte formula cuts down on shine for those of us in the southern heat and humidity.

I got this on sale and it’s not a bad bb cream it’s very full coverage and I like how I can apply it with my hands and not worry about setting it or anything. My one con is that it does show texture very easily and I feel like it can look a little to matte in my dry areas. Over all it’s a good affordable bb cream but not my favorite.
