Hmm, can a blush that feels like a gloss really do all that?

Let’s dive in and see how it performs!

innisfree long wear bb cream review

After a great experience with the Innisfree Long Wear BB Cushion, I had to put its tubed cousin to the test. After all, if the cushion formula works so well, surely the tube formula would be a promising alternative?

Hmmm! Let’s find out, shall we?
