Today's post is a review of the NEW Rimmel London Radiance BB cream! So if you want to hear my thoughts on the product, then just keep on reading!
The BB cream comes in 3 shades very light, light and medium. I have the shade very light and I must say it is the lightest BB cream I have ever found. Most BB creams that I found are too dark or really badly oxidise so I was really happy with this shade to match my pale skin!
To test this BB cream I took photos of my skin before wearing zero makeup! I took a photo with and without a flash the whole way through to see if it looks okay with a flash on!
I started by applying it to half of my face in the right side. When I sqeezed out the product it was a good thin consistency which I picked up with my finger tips to apply. At first I was really disappointed with this product. It almost didn't rub into my skin but just sat there clumping up on my skin. However I did keep at it and kept blending with my fingers and it did eventually rub in. The colour match was good for my fair skin and did cover my redness pretty well and evened out my skin tone but didn't cover my blemishes!
To apply it to the second half of my skin I decided to use a wet beauty blender AND IT WAS SO MUCH BETTER! It just picked up that excess product and really pushed it into the skin so I highly recommend using a sponge with this!
Overall the finally application made my skin look pretty flawless (besides from my blemish which would need concealer to cover it it). The acutally Radience of the BB cream is beautiful! It made my skin look lumiounius and healthly without looking greasy or oily! There still was a bit of clumping (if thats the right word to us) around my nose area but i actually really enjoyed how it look at the end.
Here's the finally before and after so you can see how it covered up the redness of my nose, chin and cheeks.
For my finally thoughts here are my pros and cons!
- Great coverage
- Beautiful Radiance to the skin
- Really affordable at $12.95
- Really great shade selection for pale skin
- Can be a bit difficult to blend so highly recommend a damp beauty blender
- May not be a shade selection for darker complexions.
