RIMMEL BB CREAMS REVIEW
This post has been a long time coming; life & work got in the way. Typical.
I've been using these BB creams for a while now so definitely feel I can give an accurate review. However, remember, everything is different for everyone; so if anyone has used either of these BB creams let me know your thoughts in the comment box below!
So as you can see, there is the original BB cream which has been around for well over a year now, and the slightly newer Matte BB cream. Which is my favourite?
You'll soon find out.
Both the BB creams claim to be 9-in-1 and claim to be a "skin perfecting super makeup". The BB creams claim to Prime, Moisturise, Minimise Pores, Conceal, Cover, Smooth, Mattify, Brighten, and Help to Protect.
That was a lot. I wouldn't say either of these creams hit all 9 of those claims, but as BB creams they're pretty darn good. As you can see on the right, the original is a lot heavier than the new Matte one on the left. So I always feel I need a buffing brush or beauty blender to apply the original cream. It does therefore, have better coverage!
The Matte one can easily be applied with a stippling brush or your fingers.
They are both great products but my favourite by far is the newer Matte formula. Although it doesn't keep me matte for more than a couple of hours TOPS, I just really like the way it makes my skin look after using it. Its great; gives me good natural looking cover and matches to my skin tone without oxidising! Love it!
The original is good too but in my opinion the newer formula has it beat!
Thank you so much for reading! <3 x.
