REVIEW: Rimmel London Stay Matte BB Cream


BB (blemish balm) cream intends to replace a variety of cosmetics in your makeup bag. BB cream acts as foundation, primer, moisturizer and sunblock. Rimmel London released its own version of BB cream, featuring 9-in-1 benefits, plus SPF-25.

The Packaging

This product comes in a light beige tube. The tube features a squeeze top. The packaging is light and simplistic.

The Product Benefits

The BB cream promises 9 benefits:

  • Prime
  • Moisturize
  • Minimize pores
  • Conceal
  • Cover
  • Smooth
  • Mattifies
  • Brighten
  • Helps protect


Below is a swatch in the shade Medium. 

Upon application, the formula is completely liquid. After a few seconds of wear it dries to a matte finish. The shade medium dried to a darker finish than my skin tone.

The Product

Rimmel London’s BB cream is smooth and non-drying. It blends well using a beauty blender or your fingertips. One aspect of this product that I do not favour is the formula. The product itself is a runny consistency, and does not dry to a true matte finish. Despite this, the product is light and airy on the skin.

Kimmel London’s BB cream is available from Kimmel London’s official website or Shoppers locations for $12.
