Rachel K CC Renew Pressed Powders X Adverts- TWP, Petite Fairies

Rachel K Cosmetics
CC Renew Pressed Powder

Just a few weeks ago, I'd received an email from the marketing department of Rachel K Cosmetics asking if I would like to try their new product, the CC Renew Pressed Powder. I was really thrilled because I've always wanted to try Rachel K's CC product range since I've heard pretty good reviews about them. Also, because I'm just a huge fan of Rachel K, otherwise known as Rachel Kum herself.

First of all, who is Rachel K? And what is this whole CC hype about?
Well, I've always looked up to Rachel Kum not only because she was crowned Miss Universe Singapore in 2009 but also because she has grown to be such a successful lady with her skincare and cosmetic line. She is definitely a great role model for all of us Singaporean girls! With her own international label doing exceptional well, we can all chase our dreams like she did and believe that anything is possible as long as we work hard for them.
Found this video on Youtube of Rozz interviewing Rachel a year ago and thought I'll share it with you all here. Pretty much tells you everything about Rachel K Cosmetics.
Apart from all that is mentioned in the video, in 2010, Rachel K debuted her CC Cream and it was an instant hit according to their website. CC stands for Color Control. And much like BB creams that many of us are familiar with, the Rachel K CC Creams offer even more benefits such as color control, oil control, whitening, brightening, moisturizing and UV protection with SPF 35 PA ++. 

It's great for women like myself who are constantly busy and on the go. It's inevitable to put on our best faces everyday when we meet clients or head for events and photo shoots. And some times, applying make up can get a little dreadful if you're doing it so often. I usually skip foundation unless I have something REALLY important to attend and whenever I do have foundation on, I find my skin looking and feeling rather oily and it can get patchy. That's why I rather just apply loose powder, I've always preferred looking more natural anyway. But some times, I have blemishes or skin discoloration that the loose powder can't cover. Applying concealer over those blemishes and discoloration just makes me face look cakey. 

However, all these problems are solved with just ONE product. The Rachel K CC Renew Pressed Powder. Before I go on, I would like you all to know that this is NOT an advertorial, neither am I giving this review because I am a fan of Rachel Kum. I just feel the need to inform you guys of an awesome product that I've just discovered. It's definitely something that I would be wearing for a long time from now on and it would be selfish of me to not share it with you guys ;)

First of all, this is my skin without any foundation, BB cream or even loose powder on. I only have under-eye concealer, eyebrow pencil, a little bit of eyeliner, tinted lip balm and mascara on. (Basically, the average A&F kinda make-up excluding the eyeliner)
As you can see, I have combination skin whereby my cheeks often feels dry while my t-zone is constantly shiny and it can get pretty oily at times. I hate how shiny my nose gets some times, the shine makes it look bigger somehow. Also, from this picture, you can see some of my blemishes, a little bit of dark spots and discoloration on my nose and forehead.

As mentioned earlier, foundation aren't my go-to products whenever I need help to tame the shine on my nose. I am not really a fan of liquid-kinda cosmetics. I don't fancy applying creams or serum on my face except for night creams and moisturizer. I am more of a powder kinda girl. I've grown up watching my mom apply compact pressed powder or 2-in-1 foundation powder on her face so that habit has kinda grown into me as well. Which explains why I've only recently learnt how to use make up brushes because compact powders always come with a face puff or sponge inside. hahahaha

Anyway, here's how the Rachel K CC Renew Pressed Powder looked like when they were sent to me! I was given all 3 shades- Very Light, Light and Medium.
These CC Renew Pressed Powders are made to transform your skin, revealing a natural luminous, flawless and perfectly smooth complexion. Here's what I love about Rachel K cosmetics, that they emphasize greatly on natural finishes and feather weight texture. You can tell from Rachel Kum's own complexion. It's proof that she don't have to apply much make up to get that dewy, fresh, flawless and radiant skin. 

Something else I love about these CC Renew Pressed Powders? It's their packaging! It's definitely classy, user-friendly and hygienic. Why hygienic? I'll explain a little more later. 
The 3 different shades. From left to right: Very Light, Light and Medium. I use Medium.
Here's something interesting about it's packaging that makes it very hygienic! It has this little plastic divided in between the powder puff and the pressed powder itself. This keeps the pressed powder in shape and also gives a "home" to the puff! How cool is that? 

Also, I think that it's great for someone like me who is vain and constantly checking myself out in my little compact mirror. Every time I take out my compact powder case to look in the mirror, I am exposing my powder to the dust, dirt and bacteria in the air, but with the plastic divider, there is some sort of "protective barrier" available so I don't have to worry about contamination or whatever. 
Trying out the CC Renew Pressed Powder was great! It glided on easily and smoothly. I could see the difference INSTANTLY and was super delighted to know that my skin was very evenly covered without much product on. I only needed to tap on the powder once and half my face already had that "finished" look. What I loved the most was how my skin was brightened up and I almost looked like a shade lighter! I'm serious! My skin really looked like it was glowing. No more dull skin :) For once, I thought I had that Rachel Kum glow. hahaha
The CC Renew Pressed Powders are free of parabens, talc, they're non-comedogenic, dermatologically tested and you'll be happy to know that Rachel K cosmetic is cruelty free!! (as mentioned in the video embed above, Rachel tests it out on herself.) 

If you're looking for great coverage here, the pressed powders might not do the job well for you. After-all, they aren't foundation, BB or CC creams. They're just meant to give you that finished, matte, radiant look. I suggest that if you want full coverage, you have to apply the CC Renew Cream first then the pressed powder over. It works well for me because it is definitely a step above loose powder. It gives me a little more coverage then usual but still allows me to maintain that natural appeal that I like. 

In this picture below, I'd applied the CC Renew Pressed Powder onto half of my face only so that you can see the difference. In the "Before" section, it is clear that my skin looked more shiny and my skin tone was a little uneven all around. Also, the dark spots are more visible there. However, in the "After" section, my skin looked a little more softer with even skin tone, lesser dark spots and it a glow. Not forgetting the fact that it still looks very natural. Almost as though I hadn't applied anything at all.
And here's my full face with the Rachel K CC Renew Pressed Powder in Medium. Some dark spots are still there but it overall, I am really pleased with the effect. I've always wanted that soft marshmallow, matte, glowly complexion and I am so happy with this product. I don't even need to apply bronzer or blusher cause this product allowed me to shine with just "bare" skin. hehehe
Before and After comparison photo ;)
Thank you Rachel K for the CC Renew Pressed Powders! I've finally found something that i'll definitely be raving to everyone about cause it's just too good. It actually lasted for quite some time and does pretty well in the humid Singapore weather. I think that since it is founded by Rachel Kum, who is a Singaporean as well, she probably understands what all of us local girls need. Rachel K is a brand that shouldn't be overlooked. So next time you're in Watsons, SASA or BHG, look out for it!;)

The CC Renew Cream is already out in the various stores I've mentioned above but this CC Renew Pressed Powder is only available on Luxola at the moment. It will be officially launched in stores soon! It is retailing at SGD$42 in case you're wondering :)

Navy Midi Mesh Dress


I fell in love with this dress the moment I wore it! Isn't it super unique? I am not a huge fan of mesh but this one seems different like it was all placed in the right proportion. And if you're worried that the mesh might get a little uncomfortable and itchy, fret not! The entire dress is ultra comfy. Great for special occasions or a night of partying! hehehe

Navy Floral Romper Dress

One of the prettiest romper-dress I've ever worn! First of all, I adore Navy apparels with floral prints. That's why I own tons of items like that. hehehe. I love this one cause it's SUPER comfy and lightweight. I can totally imagine myself wearing this to one of Fai and my picnic dates.

Petite Fairies have been doing that and the results are more stunning apparels with every new collection. It's so tough picking an item from their recent collection, anyhow, here are my picks!^^
Stripe Textured Top in White
Basic but only better :) I've been eyeing on this top for pretty long now. I think that it's subtle stripe detail makes the entire piece look really pretty. This is such a versatile top that would look great with ANYTHING! I definitely see myself going to this top a lot whenever I'm in doubt.

Side Cutout Lace Top
Another basic, but classy and versatile item! I'd picked this top because of it's subtile sexy lace cut out sides! :) The quality is superb and the cutting gives an illusion of a smaller waist. What's not to like?;)
