Glossier – First Impressions

The cult beauty brand that everyone in the online beauty world is currently talking about is Glossier. It initially launched in the US and is all the rage again since the brand now ships to the UK. I decided to buy a couple of products to see what the hype was all about.

Delivery was prompt and of course it came in the pink padded pouch that everyone talks about. The products are protected and you can reuse the pouch over and over again. It also comes with a sample size of the new Glossier You fragrance.

A great everyday highlight is the Glossier Haloscope in the shade quartz. Don’t apply it straight to your face like a glue stick, but apply it to your fingers and then dab the product onto your cheeksĀ  for a subtle glow. The stretch concealer is perfect for covering both spots and dark circles. Imperfections fade away without feeling cakey or creasing.

I use the Milky Jelly Cleanser face wash as a second cleanse after makeup removal. The jelly like texture leaves your skin feeling soft, however I’m not too keen on the rose scent to the product. The Mint Balm Dotcom is your bog standard petroleum lip balm. It’s nice but nothing special. In fact I actually find it quite hard to apply because It doesn’t have a lip friendly applicator, just a tube top.

I feel like Glossier does the basics very well. I probably will try more from the range and with loads of discount codes flying around, there is no better time to get your hands on some new products to try.
