GLOSSIER: THE BRAND YOU CAN'T GET AWAY FROM


If you're sick to death of hearing about Glossier, this post might not be for you. Since none of us could resist jumping on the bandwagon, I thought it was only right that I gave my two pennies worth. I've had my eye on Glossier since seeing bloggers like Anna from The Anna Edit and Lily Pebbles travel over to the NY showroom. Up until now it hasn't been available in the UK but hysteria hit when UK shipping launched in October.

If you want to learn more about the brand you can read about it on their website. I placed a fairly decent size order buying Boy Brow, Stretch Concealer, Cloud Paint, Balm Dotcom and a Haloscope.


I tend to bang on about brows on this blog but that's because I genuinely can't live without brow products. In the past I've used Gimme Brow, Maybelline and YSL brow products which all have delicate little brush to glide through each individual hair. The formula is lovely, but it's not unlike any of the other product I've used. I actually have mine away to colleague because I thought the shade Brown was too light for me. 




Balm Dotcom is a cult favourite skin salve, a 'do it all' balm for your lips, cuticles and dry patches or as a wet look highlighter on the top of cheekbones. The balm is lovely and thick - perfect for the colder months. The tiny packaging is perfect to throw into your handbag or your coat pocket when you're out and about.

Cloud Paint in Dusk £15

Although there needs to be more shades in the range, the Cloud Paint in Dusk is one product that I have found myself reaching for on a daily basis. I'm the opposite of a no-makeup look kind of girl but the liquid blush is so quick and easy to blend out - I've been wearing it to work instead of opting for a powder alternative. 



The stretch concealer is known for it's unique formula with elastic micro waxes that allow you to build up and blend the concealer. I have to admit I love the consistency and how it looks beautiful on the skin throughout the day. However, since I have dark circles I can't get away without using a corrector or a peachy toned concealer underneath to get the finish and coverage that I need. If you're one of the lucky ones who just needs to brighten under the eyes, then you'll definitely love this product.

Haloscope in Topaz £18

Last but not least is the Haloscope in Topaz. A combo of skincare and makeup, the dewy highlighter gives a really subtle glow to the skin. I wasn't blown away by the shade range - I chose as Topaz which comes out more bronzy on my skin tone rather than a gold pop. I find it applies best building up the product on your finger and dabbing it onto the top of the cheeks rather than swiping it on the face. 

Overall, I'm not blown away but I think that's due to personal preference of preferring heavier makeup. There are some really nice products that give you a healthy look but if like me you a prone to problem skin you're probably going to want more coverage. I definitely want to try the body care and some skincare bits, so let me know what your favourites are!
