Rachel K Mineral Color Control Neutral CC Cream Blemish Balm - review and swatches
October 23, 2013
I bought this Rachel K Neutral CC Cream from the Lust Have It shop a little while ago and I had a look at their shop today and I couldn't find it...
...good story bro!
Anyway, you can get these on ebay for around $35 and this comes in Neutral (pink tube) and in Original (black tube). There are only two shades of this, the Neutral is more neutral toned (duh!) and is a bit darker than the Original - which is very light and pink toned.
This is a Korean CC cream, which are supposed to be a lot better than the Western BB/CC creams available. This claims to be a 10 in 1 product which contains SPF, is moisturising, brightening, anti-wrinkle, collagen enriched, smudge proof, water proof etc etc.
I mainly wanted to try this because it is supposed to be good for people who have oilier skin and find Western BB/CC Creams too oily. This doesn't provide oil control, but it doesn't get super greasy looking like other BB/CC creams on the market.
As far a CC creams go, this is a great product: it does provide a good amount of coverage for a CC cream and I love the neutral tone, but my only issue is that it is so light that I can't use it on it's own - I either need to use it as a brightening base, or I need to mix it with a darker foundation to make it work... possibly I can get away with it in the middle of Winter. If you have very yellow toned skin, this may look ashy on you.
I would recommend this to people who are wanting to try Korean BB/CC creams, who want a semi-matte to slightly dewy finish, and who have light skin with neutral undertones. If you have very light skin then you may want to try the Original version.
