Glossier is one of the sleekest brands around, whether you’re looking for a fuss-free skincare routine, or makeup that aims to brighten your complexion whilst making it look skinlike. As you can see I have amassed a reasonable sized collection of Glossier products, and will probably end up buying more at some point in the future. I thought it’d be a nice idea to talk through the products I’ve tried, and share how I feel about them with you.
Let’s start off with skincare! I picked up the Milky Jelly Cleanser | £15 | review | due to all of the reviews saying how great this was for an everyday face wash, and I have to agree! I also got the Priming Moisturiser | £18 |, which I have to say I didn’t quite like when I first used it as I thought it made me look too shiny – little did I know that I like that kind of look now! This does a nice job of prepping the skin for makeup, but for me it is not enough to use as an everyday moisturiser for my dry skin, especially not in winter. What I forgot to picture were my three Balm Dot Com‘s | £10 |, which I absolutely adore. Initially I picked up one with my first order but went through that quite quickly, so decided to get three more the next time! I particularly enjoy the mint flavour, as I like the tingly feeling it gives to my lips, and I like the smell too which is a win-win.
Now let’s move on to the bigger part of my collection: makeup! A couple years ago Boy Brow | £14 | was all the rage, and so of course I had to try it out. Even though I’m blonde haired I picked up the shade ‘brown’, as my eyebrows are too dark for any blonde coloured eyebrow products. This does a great job of setting your eyebrows in place whilst also adding a good dose of colour to your eyebrows. I then got the Stretch Concealer | £15 | in the shade ‘light’, and I have to say I’m a bit iffy when it comes to this product. It gives such a beautiful brightening effect, but sometimes it looks so dry under my eyes or around my nose even when I’ve moisturised well. I’ll make sure to use it up, but I’m not sure I’ll repurchase it in the future. Another product I’m not sure I’ll buy again is the Perfecting Skin Tint | £20 | in the shade ‘light’. There is nothing wrong with this product! I am plagued by scarred, spot prone skin, but that isn’t really the problem with this. I like the lighter, more natural look, but this ends up feeling a tad greasy once blended in to the skin. It is also too pink toned for my skin, and at the time I bought this they only had 5 shades, however they have now improved to 12 shades and it has been reformulated.
This just leaves me with the Haloscope highlighters | £18 | in the shades ‘moonstone’ and ‘quarts’, as well as the Cloud Paint | £15 | in the shades ‘dusk’ and ‘beam’. The highlighters are very sheer, and are better suited to those who like the ‘lit from within’ type of the look, as they will not build up to be intense in any form. They can also be a tad sticky, but they do dry down after a few minutes – so if you want an easy everyday highlighter these might be for you. Finally, the Cloud Paint’s are such a staple item for anyone who wears blush, and even for those who don’t! They blend out like a dream, and can be easily built up on the cheeks. These are seriously one of the best offerings from Glossier, and I don’t think you’d be dissapointed at all.
