Don’t mind me i’ll just be over here contributing to Glossier’s internet takeover with this post.
I’ve recently jumped on the Glossier bandwagon to see what all the fuss is about and after trying the products for a few weeks i thought i’d report back and share what i’ve been loving and what i think is overrated.
The cloud paints are cream blushers with a pillowy-gel cream formula. Admittedly they are quite expensive for a blusher at £15 a small tube however a little goes a long way!
Before i started using product i wasn’t sold on the idea of cream blushers, or cream products on the face in general (other than foundation and concealer) but this was a complete game changer.
Due to my combination skin, i’ll occasionally get quite a dry, dull complexion, so having something that is creamy and light with a natural finish is exactly what my makeup bag was missing.
Conclusion: This product definitely lives up to the hype. I will definitely be ordering more of these little beauties when payday rolls around!
Glossier’s most hyped product, The Boy Brow.
My eyebrows are quite flat and i unfortunately don’t have that on trend ‘bushy’ look which i want so badly! So when i received my order for this product i was convinced it would dramatically change the look of my eyebrows, because thats what the internet was telling me…
I’ll confess i was underwhelmed by this product. Don’t get me wrong, its a great texture and doesn’t leave your eyebrows crusty like most gels do (big tick!) however it didn’t work miracles on transforming my brows. I still have to fill them with another product before going in and shaping/setting them with my Boy Brow.
Conclusion: I like it overall but I’m not in a mad rush to repurchase it.
The Balm dotcom is a super hydrating, long lasting lip balm. It’s thick, waxy texture is ridiculously moisturising and like the cloud paint a little goes a long way, which is useful considering it’s £10 a tube.
I ordered the coconut flavour and it’s the dreamiest flavour/scent!
Conclusion: Big fan of this one. It does what it says on the tin and the Coconut flavour is gorgeous. When i’m next feeling particularly lavish i’ll treat myself to another flavour.
This was my least favourite out of the products i’ve tried. I love the look of the gloss when its first applied. It made my lips look juicy and plump which is what it sets out to do, however as you top up the gloss it starts to get that unpleasant sticky lipgloss feel.
Conclusion: I love the initial look but isn’t as long wearing as i would of liked.
Glossier claim that this product is the ultimate daily wash cleanser and so far i have to agree.
I’ve been using this for just over a week now and so far it hasn’t made me breakout (which is a small win for my skin) and has kept my skin hydrated and soft.
It’s got a lovely subtle, rosy scent which is perfect to wake up with. I prefer to use it for a morning cleanse, as opposed to using it during my evening routine as it’s not the best for removing heavy makeup.
Conclusion: I have BIG love for this cleanser. I will definitely be re-purchasing this! I highly recommend it for all skins types, especially for sensitive breakout-prone skin.
The products that are sat in my shopping bag ready to be ordered are the ‘You’ perfume and the Priming moisturiser, so keep your eyes peeled for another review post on those.
