Say hello to the latest addition to the Rimmel London skin base range. This is 9-in-1 Rimmel BB Cream Matte.
Rimmel BB Cream Matte Review
With its sebum absorbing, pore tightening and rebalancing properties, it will be ideal for young skins that are prone to imperpections, but I have to say, I really rather like it myself!
Here I am wearing the Rimmel BB Cream Matte in shade Light:

Rimmel BB Cream Matte Review
Although this is a matte formula, it isn’t a flat matte and it still allows your skin to glow through. It is great for covering redness and enlarged pores and feels nicely creamy and moisturising on the skin. I’d say it has more of a foundation coverage than many BB creams.
It contains bamboo powder, kaolin clay, witch hazel, algae and lactic and salicylic acid and promises 9 actions – minimise pores, even skin tone, mattify, shine control, smooth, soothe, conceal dark circles, prevent blemishes, all-day coverage.

Rather hard working for £6.99 wouldn’t you say? Here are the before and after photos:

What do you think? Rimmel BB Cream Matte comes in 3 shades – very light, light and medium  – and I have swatched light and medium for you here:

It blends really well so I think the shades are quite adaptable. 
Rimmel BB Cream Matte will be available in Boots and Superdrug from 22nd January 2014 for £6.99. It will probably arrive early so keep your eyes peeled.

  1. Ooh there’s a very light?! I may, actually, be able to try this! Looks nice, I know many opt for more coverage in this season but the ease of a good bb cream/lighter foundation is so good when in a hurry (Don’t remember the last time I was able to sit and do my make-up at a leisurely pace!)
