ENG: BB Cushions have become really popular in the Korean market ever since 2013. BB cushions there, BB cushions here, YouTubers, Beauty Bloggers, everyone was raving about how easy and how great these products were. Most of them have good coverage, dewy finish and definitely a high SPF.
The product i'm currently reviewing, the Innisfree Long Wear Cushion has SPF 50+ PA+++. This formula is really great for people who have oily/combination skin, while the Water Glow Cushion is more suitable for people with normal or dry skin.
This product indeed delivers exactly what is says in the description: a long-wear formula that keeps the skin looking bright and smooth and the sebum under control. It also dries in a matte finish, doesn't make your pores look larger than life and has a subtle scent. A herbal, fresh, calming, almost tea-like scent that disappears once you pat the product onto your skin.
Newbies might be concerned that the application will get somehow heavy, because we are using a puff-sponge. But no. I don't have the slightest clue from what's it made of *the sponge-puff that comes with the case*, but it makes the application so much easier than using a Beauty Blender or a brush.
I have tried this product almost everyday, for a couple of weeks now and let me say that the Romanian weather is really crazy right now. We had extremely hot days that left me like a deflated balloon and rainy, cold days that made me want to look for my sweaters and jackets. That being said, i have had the opportunity to try this cushion to the max and here's what i've got.
On cold days, or spring, autumn and winter, you don't need any powder to put on your T-zone. This matte cushion will last you 4 to 5 hours without a problem, on his own. If your T-zone is getting a little shiny, just take some blotting tissues and the problem is solved. No reapplication is needed. You may think "oh, i have really oily skin and i will need some powder to set everything in place!". Yep, that's exactly what i thought too! :))
Rest assured that i've tried this product with and without the powder and it made absolutely no difference. If you do feel the need to apply a powder, choose a translucent one. I recommend Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder or Catrice Prime & Fine Mattifying Powder Waterproof.
The reason i'm saying this is that if you do choose to apply a powder that has some coverage, it will look a little cakey and you'll loose that nice effect this cushion is offering.
I want my skin to look like skin and not a mask!
On really hot summer days, you may need to freshen up after 4 hours. Just take some blotting tissues and remove excess oil. No, you don't need to pat some more product onto your skin because this cushion has a really impressing staying power. I think it's because we are "pushing" the bb cream into our skin, looking really natural, like my-skin-but-better!


RO: BB Cushion-ul a devenit foarte popular si extrem de cautat pe piata coreeana in 2013. BB Cushion in stanga, BB Cushion in dreapta, YouTuberitele, Beauty Bloggeritele, toata lumea ridica in slavi aceste produse pentru ca sunt foarte eficiente si usor de folosit. Majoritatea au o acoperire destul de buna, un finish dewy si un SPF cat mai ridicat.
Produsul despre care va voi vorbi azi, Innisfree Long Wear Cushion are SPF 50+ PA+++. Aceasta formula a fost special conceputa pentru persoanele care au un ten gras si/sau mixt, in timp ce Water Glow Cushion este adecvat persoanelor care au un ten normal si/sau uscat.
Cu siguranta acest produs "livreaza" exact ceea ce promite in descriere: a formula care rezista, mentine pielea luminoasa, fina si sebumul sub control. Are un finish mat, nu "mareste" si evidentiaza porii, are un miros subtil, fresh, herbal, foarte apropiat mirosului de ceai, dar care se evapora o data ce este aplicat pe piele.
Cei noi intr-ale produselor coreene pot fi ingrijorati ca acest produs poate lasa tenul oarecum incarcat pentru ca folosim un aplicator buretel-puff *chiar nu stiu cum sa-l numesc*, daaar, nu. N-am nici cea mai vaga idee din ce este confectionat *buretelul-puff-what's-his-name care vine in carcasa*, dar faciliteaza foarte mult aplicarea produselor lichide *i.e. fond de ten, bb cream, cc cream, primer*, decat renumitele Beauty Blendere sau pensule.
Am incercat acest produs aproape in fiecare zi, de cateva saptamani incoace si trebuie sa recunosc ca vremea din Romania este destul de capricioasa, ca sa nu zic nebuna, sarita de pe axă rau de tot. Am avut si zile extrem de calduroase care m-au lasat asemeni unui balon dezumflat la sfarsitul zilei, dar si zile ploioase, reci care m-au facut sa ma uit cu jind la pulovere si jachete. Datorita acestor temperaturi nehotarate, am avut prilejul sa testez la maxim tot ce poate acest cushion. La urmatoarele concluzii am ajuns.
In zilele cu o temperatura cat de cat mai normala sau mai exact, primavara, toamna si iarna, chiar nu este nevoie de aplicarea unei pudre pe zona T. Acest bb cushion rezista aproximativ 4-5 ore pe contul propriu, ceea ce e destul de impresionant pentru un produs coreean *fiind renumiti pentru aspectul dewy*. Pentru a indeparta sebumul in exces, recomand utilizarea unor servetele matifiante *Oil Blotting Sheets*.
Stiu la ce va ganditi acum "ah, eu am tenul destul de gras, cu siguranta o sa-mi trebuiasca o pudra sa setez totul!". Mda, exact la asta m-as fi gandit si eu daca eram in locul vostru! :))
Stati linistite, am incercat aplicarea acestui cushion in mai multe feluri si chiar nu s-a observat vreo diferenta. Daca totusi v-ati simti mai bine cu o pudra pe deasupra, alegeti una translucida. Eu va recomand Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder sau Catrice Prime & Fine Mattifying Powder Waterproof.
Daca veti alege o pudra care are cat de cat o acoperire, veti pierde acel finish natural pe care il ofera acest cushion, iar tenul va arata cam incarcat.
Imi place la nebunie sa am un ten flawless, dar sa se vada totusi pielea, si nu parca as purta o masca.
In zilele toride ale verii este necesara o reimprospatare a machiajului dupa aproximativ 4 ore. Luati niste servetele matifiante si eliminati excesul de sebum. Si nu, nu este necesar sa aplicati si mai mult produs pe zonele problematice pentru ca acest cushion rezista destul de bine de-a lungul zilei. Cred ca acest lucru se datoreaza faptului ca "impingem" produsul in piele, lasand in urma un finish foarte natural, my-skin-but-better!

ENG: As usual, i would love to know your opinion. Would you try out this product? And if you did, how did you get along with it?

RO: Ca intotdeauna, astept cu drag feedback-ul vostru. Dupa cele citite, ati incerca acest produs? Daca l-ati incercat deja, cum v-ati inteles cu el?

Have a lovely day!
