BB Cream Radiance & Lasting Finish Powder Foundation


I don't think I will ever tired of trying out new foundations, powders or BB creams trying to perfect
my base to it's best flawless finish. Recently I have been trying out these two newbies and I am
loving the combo for everyday wear. 

Rimmel London BB Radiance available in Very Light, Light & Medium.
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Powder Foundation available in Light Porcelain, Soft Beige,
Silky Beige & Warm Honey.

Rimmel London Radiance BB Cream in 'Light'

I probably have about ten to fifteen different brands of BB Creams in my collection so obviously
I have had my fair share of experience with them and this Rimmel London Radiance BB Cream
really does make my skin radiant! Considering that it is nine in one is pretty impressive to me.

Those nine being -
Minimises Pores
Natural Coverage
Radiant Finish
Awakens Skin

This dermatologist tester super cream contains Vitamin C which is the main powerful ingredient
which aids in all of the above particually brightening and awakening the skin. I notice an instant
quite dramatic difference in the appearance of my skin when I apply this in the morning. It looks
like my skin instantly perfected, like a mini face lift in my bathroom! :)

As you can see from the swatches below the shade I have been using in light is a perfect match for
my skin tone. I would recommend the 'Very Light' shade for very light/fair skin and 'Medium' for
warmer, sun kissed tones. 

You only require a pea size amound of product which seems to just blend right into the skin leaving
a very natural ironed out result. It doesn't feel greasy, nor does it cake up or flake throughout the day,
but stays looking like I am not wearing make-up at all. I love that it's like my secret to looking and
and staying awake and fresh all day.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Powder Foundation in 'Soft Beige'

What I find interesting and unique about this product is that is can be applied either as a dry finishing
powder over your regular foundation or BB cream or as a buildable full coverage foundation when
applied wet. I like having these two options to choose from when doing my make-up so I can rely on
this one product to get me though whatever the occasion may be.

The swatch below shows the powder when dry. It is a compact powder which is smooth and very
light on the skin, yet still gives a decent amount of coverage. When applied wet however, this
gives much more of a flawless result whilst still retaining it's natural finish.

The compact itself if housed in a plastic red firmly sealed curved square complete with clear lid,
mirror and applicator sponge stored underneith the product. I personally LOVE products which
house inbuild mirrors as I am forever applying my make-up on the go and nine times out of ten
you can bet I either have forgotten my mirror or do not have access to one and have to free hand
it hoping for the best! Yes, scary!! So thank you Rimmel London make-up packaging designers,
you have met this woman's needs!
