SINGAPORE — In the mid-Aughts, endorsements by Korean celebrities who had discovered BB, or blemish balm, cream helped popularize the German-invented product. Now, beauty queen and cosmetics company founder Rachel Kum is hoping to replicate their feat with CC, or color or complexion correction, cream.
Kum’s company, Rachel K Cosmetics, was among the first wave of firms that brought CC cream to the market about three years ago. These products are lauded for providing a more radiant finish compared to their BB cream counterparts; proponents also say the active ingredients in these creams provide both makeup and skin-care functions.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
