Glossier: The Breakdown
It only took three years, but Glossier is now shipping to Canada. When I heard this news, I did a similar dance to the one I did when I was a 13 year old at the Jonas Brothers concert; pure joy. Obviously I placed an order the first day of the launch, as there was several products I had been eyeing up like pizza after a night out.
First off - everything you receive from Glossier is guaranteed to come in the world's cutest, most aesthetically pleasing packaging. The pink bubble-wrap baggie, the stickers that are now all over my apartment, and even the boxes are to die for. Whoever does their branding seriously needs to give me some design tips.
The item I was most excited for was definitely the Birthday Balm Dot Com. As a lover of cake and anything sweet-scented, this was a match made in heaven. The texture of the balm is incredibly hydrating, but not super glossy which I enjoy. This particular flavour has the tiniest bit of shimmer which makes me feel like a tween all over again. How soon is too soon to order 10 more of these?
While we're on the topic of lips, the uber creatively named Lip Gloss is UNREAL. If you've ever wanted lips glossy enough to see your reflection, this is your product. The best part is there's almost no stickiness!
Another hyped up product is the infamous Boy Brow. Known for it's itty bitty titty committee applicator, it really does grip onto every single brow hair. You don't have to be worry about crispy, flaky brows, just perfectly set and fluffy. I have the shade Blonde, and it's perfect for low- maintenance brow days. Noticing a trend here? Everything with Glossier is so darn easy.
Cloud Paint, the lightweight liquid blush you never knew you needed. I picked up the shade Puff, which honestly is a bit of a regret. It's nice, but I thought I was a lot more into baby pink blushes than I really am. The formula however is fantastic, blends like a dream, and doesn't break up your base.
Last but certainly not least.. the Milky Jelly Cleanser. In actual fact it's not milky at all, mainly just jelly. I like this because it seems to deep clean really quickly, while still moisturizing my skin. I'm not sure if I'm breaking the rules, but if I'm having a light eye makeup day, I'll rub some on my eyes as well. The scent is interesting, supposedly smells of roses but it's almost like plastic roses. I'm willing to look past that though.
I would have bought the entire line if my credit card would have allowed it. I'm thinking Haloscope, Super Bounce and Stretch Concealer are next on my list. I'm also starting a go-fund campaign if anyone wants to fuel my Glossier addiction. Any products you've been wanting to try?
