This is a review of the Rimmel BB Cream Matte 9-in-1. Last time I was in the US, I wanted to pick up a BB cream from a non-Asian brand. BB creams are my favorite form of base makeup during the summer.
What it does: (from Rimmel’s website)
Rimmel’s 1st 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup 9 in 1 results: Primes, moisturizes, minimizes pores, conceals, covers, smoothes, mattifies, brightens, and helps protect. Lightweight, ultra comfortable formula instantly gives a flawless, 100% natural finish. SPF 25
Price: Like all drugstore products in the US, the price of this will vary depending on where you buy it. Target online lists this for $6.50
Availability: This and other Rimmel products are widely available in the US in drugstores (Walgreens, CVS, etc) and supermarkets (Target, Walmart, etc).
- Light and easy to blend
- I like that this product comes in a squeeze tube, which is hygienic and also low cost
- I felt this product was very greasy. It does not set at all, and I really don’t understand how it can be marketed as a mattifying product.
- This product comes in only 2 shades. Really!?
Would I repurchase? No. Unfortunately my first American BB cream purchase did not work out. This product was greasy on my skin, and seemed to constantly slip around.
Do you have an American BB cream that you recommend?
Hope you enjoyed this review!
