Review: Rimmel BB Radiance and Lasting Finish 25HR Powder

Rimmel have launched two new products recently, The first being a new addition to the current BB cream line, BB Radiance - Rimmel’s first skin-perfecting makeup that illuminates skin with a natural, healthy looking glow! This product is available in three shades. (Very Light, Light & Medium – I am using Medium)

The second product is a 25hr lasting powder, available in four shades. (01 Light Porcelain, 02 Soft Beige, 03 Silky Beige and 05 Warm Honey - I am using soft beige)

I initially had been using these products together as I much prefer a matte finish & have found previously when using other BB creams that I was left feeling greasy and heavy feeling. However I have found this BB cream sits quiet well on my skin & I did actually receive a few comments around the ‘glowyness’ of my face.  

The BB cream claims to have a 9 in 1 formula that primes, smooths, conceals, minimizes pores, moisturizes, brightens, provides natural coverage, and awakens tired skin. The formula is also meant to contain a Vitamin C Complex which awakens tired skin, along with an SPF 20 to protect.

The Lasting Finish powder is a powder to foundation formula - my favourite of all powder formulas. I enjoy that this powder is quite light on the skin but also very buildable for additional coverage as it claims. 

I have been enjoying the finish of these products whilst used together, finding they provide a light coverage which still allows for a very fresh & flawless glow. It is the perfect base for my 'no make up make up' look for those days when I want to look put together but want to put in minimal effort - or on those days when I press that snooze button one too many times.  

Below is a swatch of the BB cream in the shade Medium. It at first appears a tad too dark for me but once blended into the skin is an ok match. I found applying this product with my fingers worked the best for me.

I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave me a comment with any questions you have about this product or if you have used it, please tell me your thoughts. 

Talk Soon, S x. 


  1. I'd love to try these! Especially the BB cream. You've convinced me, its so hard to find a good "no makeup makeup" with light coverage that doesn't look too made up but also gives you a natural glow! Must go to priceline to pick these up :)

  2. These look so amazing on you as a combo!!! Really sit beautifully on your skin! I have been enjoying mine as well :)
