A fresh line of cosmetics designed to look amazing in person and on the ‘gram. Inspired by the everyday needs and dreams of real women. So versatile that you can you a single product multiple ways. What more could we ask for?
Glossier was created by Emily Weiss (also the founder of Into a Gloss) used to be a coveted rarity make-up artists would bring over from their jaunts to NY and LA. Behold, it’s finally available on our side of the pond!
I started my Glossier adventure with three products:
– the Birthday Balm, which I use for my lips, eyelids and all over my body
– Boy Brow, which gets those brows properly primped
– Cloud Paint on my cheeks
The minute I loaded them on Instagram, I got hundreds of DMs asking me for more info. So, I decided to share my impressions for all right here.
I have to say the Birthday Balm is my favorite – of all the products I have in my bathroom. I was always skeptical about lip gloss, but this one is so subtle, so natural. The barely-there sparkle is ideal.
The Boy Brow really WORKS, but I’m not sure if it’s not too much for me – I’m still testing it out! If you thinking of trying it out for yourself, I recommend you take a lighter shade than you’d expect (my blond turned out quite dark).
Cloud Paint is the most realistic rouge I’ve ever tried. The colour is sublime and blends in wonderfully.
The benefit of all three products is the fact that they look very natural – there’s no risk of “make-up face”. Spurred on by my first purchase, I ordered a foundation (said to be very delicate and transparent), the milk cleanser and cream-primer. Review of these coming soon!
