I woke up like this…well kinda.
Beauty trends constantly change. The cat eye, the red lip, thin eyebrows, overdrawn lip liner — it never ends! However one look has stood the test of time — natural beauty. There’s something so amazing about a woman who works with what her mama gave her! That in itself is a fashion statement.
That’s why I am beyond obsessed with Glossier.
Founded by Emily Weiss in late 2014, this brand has taken the beauty industry by storm with their minimalism and no-makeup-makeup approach. Their iconic millennial pink packaging grew a cult-following basically overnight, from big city working gals to celebrities strutting down the red-carpet.
But is it actually as great as all the hype? I remember asking myself that same question and having some doubts. In fact, I ordered my first Glossier product about 3 years ago on Cyber Monday to make sure I didn’t pay full price if it didn’t meet expectations.
And that was the exact moment I got lost in the gloss.
So which Glossier products are the best-of-the-best? I have tried SO MANY since then but these are my go-to products that I honestly could not live without:
1 | Boy Brow – grooming pomade ($16) : Arguably, this product put Glossier on the map! It takes the phrase “eyebrows on fleek” to the max: long-lasting, tinted, and available in multiple natural shades (including clear). This best-selling product is the ultimate secret to perfecting your brow game.
2 | Stretch Concealer – flexible coverage ($18): This hydrating formula enhances and brightens skin without emphasizing your pores or looking like you caked it on with a spatula. It makes your skin feel super fresh with its dewy finish! Its shade range seeming works for many skin tones even though it only consists of five choices.
3 | Haloscope – dew effect highlighter ($22): We’ve all seen it…highlighter that looks like she finger painted glitter on her cheeks. Not this product! With a vitamin rich oil infused in its core, this highlighter stick adds the perfect hint of shimmer (due to crushed up real crystals) to bring out a dewy glow.
4 | Generation G – sheer matte lipstick ($18): To get the perfect amount of lipstick coverage, my mom taught me that you are supposed to blot it with a Kleenex after you swipe it on. This product gives you that exact blotted look with a single swipe OR you can continue to layer to build the color.
5 | The Super Pack – three serums ($65): Glossier’s “skin first, makeup second” movement starts exactly with that, skin! This trio covers all of your bases for healthy complexion: 1) Super Bounce hydrates dry skin and locks in moisture, 2) Super Glow brightens and energizes your complexion, and 3) Super Pure reduces redness and minimizes breakouts.
