Hi you guys!! Sunday already, huh! I don’t know how the weeks is always so long, but the weekend always manages to sneak by! I seriously never understand this.
As we all know, this week is also Valentine’s day, which I am pretty excited about, but what I am more excited about is hubby and I’s wedding anniversary that is on the weekend! And after that, is also my blog’s 1-year anniversary! I cannot believe I have been doing this for a year and I have learnt so much, met so many new wonderful people. So, you already know that blog posts are coming up for those events as well 🙂
Today we are going to talk about Glossier. Glossier is that new makeup brand that is a go-to for those people who like to keep it minimal, classy and elegant. From all the reviews that I have read about their products, what I know is that their foundation has the lightest coverage, the formula of their products is very hydrating and that their brow product is THE BEST!
Now, if you have been a regular at my blog, you might know that I like my base to be good in coverage because of my skin issues. But I really liked the idea of their cloud paint (which is basically a blush), or their boy brow which is a one-and-done product for your eyebrows. AND, their toner kept popping up on my feed. So, I finally decided that I needed (yes, needed!) to try out their products. After spending a full hour on their website, I narrowed it down to 4 products that I wanted to order.
I am breaking down their performance and my verdict below and whether they are as good as they are talked about.
- Glossier Solution– I was using pixi glow before I started using this, but I wasn’t really sure if that was doing anything. I am not sure about this either, but it does feel like it’s working since it tingles a little when I use it. I apply it with a cotton pad, it has a pump that you can put your cotton on and pump the toner on the pad- very easy to use. It also has AHA/BHA which is said to be great for acne and blemish prone skin, so I am waiting for it to do wonders on my skin! 😀
2. Generation G– This is their lipstick which is more like a sheer color balm, that you can build up as per your liking. They have a variety of shades ranging from nude to reddish dark. The color that I got is “crush”. It is a pretty pink color which is like a “my lips but better” color for me and I keep it in my work bag mostly, just to touch-up in case we have any after work happy hour. Although, I would probably not get more of these because I have very pigmented lips and it shows up in different colors on my upper and lower lip.
3. Cloud Paint– These are essentially cream blushes. They come in 4 different shades, out of which I ordered “Beam” and “Puff”. These were the lighter shades in their collection and I absolutely love how it looks on the skin. These are perfect for those good-skin, no-makeup days when you want your cheeks to look flushed. Puff is a very bubblegum-pink color and Beam is a peachy nude which is perfect for everyday use. Also, a little goes a long way. I would probably end up buying the other 2 shades as well! 😀
4. Boy Brow– This is, by no doubt, the most talked about glossier product and rightly so. It is a one-step product for your eyebrows. Every morning when I am getting ready for work, I brush my brows with them and since my brows have sparse hair in the beginning, I just add some powder with a brow brush. This step takes me literally a minute and I am done. I know everyone says this, but trust me- if you only get one thing from Glossier, get this!
All in all- I would say I am pretty impressed with their stuff. I am really liking the toner and the boy brow; the cream blushes are a close second and last comes the lip colors.
