Review: Clarins Everlasting Cushion Foundation

And the list of cushion foundations goes on~! Here’s another cushion foundation that I’ve been trying out, and it’s not from a Korea brand.

Beauty News: Sisley launches the Hydra-Global Serum

It’s a common misconception that those with oily, or combi-oily skintypes don’t require hydration (in fact, it’s something I used to think!). This is sooo untrue.
