Glossier Review #2

Happy Monday all, it has been awhile since I did my first Glossier review and since then I have acquired many more products I wanted to share my opinions on. I know these posts are very appreciated because Glossier is more or less a web-based company unless you are able to get to their NYC showroom it is sometimes hard to pick out items when you can’t test them in person first. So let’s just dive right in shall we?

A product that has truly become one of my favorites is the Milky Jelly Cleanser. When I first got this product I really didn’t find it anything special about but threw it in my shower anyways. I started noticing myself use it more and more and bringing it out of the shower and even began traveling with it. Honestly, I think the scent and how gentle it is on my skin is what I like the most about it. Another great thing about this cleanser is its versatility, it can remove non-waterproof makeup when applied to dry skin. It has the same cleaning agents as contact solution so you can open up your eyes and not have to worry about any stinging. Overall I think this is a great cleanser to have in your cabinet and a great product to travel with.

I love blush. It is definitely one of the products I don’t leave the house without so when Glossier came out with 4 shades of Cloud Paint blushes I had to get my hands on them. They offer 4 beautiful colors in Puff, Beam, Haze, and Dusk that were inspired by the NYC sunset. I got 3 of the 4 shades in Beam a coral, Haze a berry, and Dusk a nude-ish shade. The bendability of this product really amazes me, it creates such a natural flush to your cheeks. I mix the shades sometimes which makes them feel a bit more customizable. You don’t need a lot of product so these last a good amount of time or if you apply too much I just use a foundation brush to blend it out and it does a good job of collecting the extra product.

I really love face masks, I love pampering myself with them when I need a little extra TLC. Glossier has 2 masks, the Moisturizing Moon Mask and Mega Greens Galaxy Pack Mask, which is the one that I purchased. Now although I do really enjoy this mask I think that it does what other drugstore masks that I’ve enjoyed do. After purchasing this detoxifying mask I found more people saying that they liked the moisturizing mask better or liked using both together. I don’t think I will be repurchasing this product, and don’t find myself gravitating towards it when I am looking to pamper myself with a mask.

I was really excited to get my hands on the Body Hero Duo because Glossier said since they gave you dewy glowy skin for your face they wanted to do it for your body. My first impression when I used this was being obsessed with the luxurious feel of this product on my skin to the scent of orange blossom neroli which makes you smell like a French baby. The body oil is not slippery and yet provide an oily texture, a mix of a shower gel and oil, that still foams up. The body cream was thicker then I thought it would be which was nice and it absorbed fairly quickly for how thick it is. There is also these light-reflecting particles in the cream that give your skin this glowy sheen which is perfect when you want to show off some skin. I love using this in the shower and after when I want to feel fancy and pampered.

The Haloscope in Quartz which I know in itself has a pretty huge cult following and although I do really love this product and the way it looks on my skin I think I almost prefer the Becca highlighter a bit more. I think this is a great highlighter to travel with and keep in your purse for some midday touch-ups. Although I don’t think I would repurchase this product in quartz I am a bit curious about trying this product in topaz – I have seen people use it as a eyeshadow and it really looks lovely.

Glossier is all about the dewy glowy skin so when they came out with a powder I was shocked. They call it Wowder, not a powder and I think that is a perfect description of this product. I am a person that needs their concealer to be set or it will just crease halfway through the day, but when I use it I end up mattifying the dewy look I just created. I really wanted to try this product out and I couldn’t resist getting the brush that came with it – maybe because I wanted a mini pink pouch? Now although it doesn’t keep that dewy look completely intact it doesn’t completely mattify either, I don’t think you are going to find a powder that will do that so, I think this is pretty damn close. I think that diamond powder in this product may be the secret to this product and it applies nicely as it is a very very fine product.

Glossier You is your perfect everyday scent that is truly perfect for everyone. This scent is very well balanced, creamy, clean, and warm. The only downside I can see with this product is that it is $60 for 1.7 oz., I wish I got a little bit more for my money but this scent is truly lovely so I can overlook that. I like that this perfume wears nicely throughout the day as well, I can still get hints of it after hours. I usually gravitate to a more masculine scent but the warm notes in this make it very nice to wear during the day hours on a everyday basis.

What’s in My Makeup Bag: Fall Edition

The seasons they are a changing and so is my makeup bag. With the cooler weather I start to reintroduce more makeup back into my routine, and like fashion, makeup to has a transitional period. I thought I would share some new products that I have really been loving lately and that are all new to me.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita II – this terracotta nude is the perfect color for the fall and if you are not familiar with Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick then you have to go out and pick it up. The formula is very creamy and easy to apply but yet leaves a matte finish that lasts a decent amount of time. Along with the original Lolita shade, this is one of the brands best sellers and maybe even one of Sephora’s top sellers and I can see why. The shade is just very complimentary and not a nude shade you see often.

Wowder by Glossier – promoted as not a powder for the days you don’t want to look dewy and want to control shine. In the summer I am all about that dewy glow and I still like a little bit in the fall but there are more spots I want matte or at least to be able to control the dew. This is probably one of the best powders I have used on my skin, it is up there with Laura Mercier’s Translucent Setting Powder. The kaolin clay in this formula absorbs oil but vanishes into the skin (instead of sitting and caking on top like most powders). There is also vitamin E which gives Wowder its silky, non-drying texture which gives the finish I am raving about.

Glossier Cloud Paint in Beam – This is my third shade of this product because I LOVE this blush! It is so blendable, buildable, and you can mix it with other shades in the collection and create a new one so the possibilities are endless. It comes in three shades all which represent the NYC sunset and the shades are made to work across a wide range of skin tones for a “healthy, flushed-from-within glow.”

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Eye Shadow Palette – Now this is a very recent purchase and I am still playing around with all these rich pigmented colors. I have been seeing beauty YouTubers using this palette and creating these obviously dramatic looks, but also these amazing day looks that convinced me to go to Sephora and play with it. This palette is very intimidating in person so I had a girl from Sephora show me some great ways to mix and play with these colors. Once my eye look was done I was just like take my money.

MAC ‘Pro Longwear’ Paint Pot*CURRENTLY 15% OFF AT NORDSTROM* Another product that I kept seeing YouTubers refer to this as a cult product. This is a great base to any eyeshadow look and looks beautiful on its own, gives a very 90s eye by itself. There is magic in this formula let me tell you – its very buildable and creamy but yet has a vibrant finish which does not cake or crease.
