Let's talk about Glossier.
The inspiration for this post goes 100% to you guys. Glossier's branding & advertising has been on-point - I see their stuff everywhere, and it seems like you guys do too, since I have had multiple people ask me what I thought of Glossier / if they should try it out. So, I decided to do a mini-haul for you to let you know if their stuff is really worth the hype.
Basically, Glossier's whole mantra is "Skincare first, makeup second"
Which I loooove. There have definitely been moments where my skin has been less than ideal (we've alllll been there), and I'm always worried about putting makeup on over it. Seems counter-intuitive, right? So the idea of creating products with skincare as the priority definitely appealed to me.
To decide which products to review, I reached out to the Glossier team to find out what their best-of-the-best are. They also gave me a nice little discount for you guys, which you can get at the end of this post.
First Up: Mega Greens Galaxy Pack
One of their best-selling skincare products, the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack face mask, is a 20-minute "juice cleanse for your face" and is meant to detoxify your skin & draw out impurities. You can definitely tell that this is made with avocado and clay because this is a THICK mask. After I had it on for 20 minutes, I noticed that some of the mask had absorbed completely into my skin, and afterwards my skin felt very moisturized. While I'm not sure if it did a whole lot to any excess oil or skin impurities, it left my face feeling fresh & dewy, so I'll definitely use this again as just a gentle, moisturizing face mask.
The must-have: Boy. Brow.
This was the product I was most excited about and let me tell you: it's 120% worth the hype. Boy Brow thickens, fills-in, and helps to shape brows in that natural way you've always wanted. I really can't say enough wonderful things about this product (which I picked up in "Blond"), so I'll just leave it at this: Cara Delevingne vibes for days.
Lastly: the rose-quartz highlighter
Glossier's Haloscope "Quartz" highlighter was one of those products I didn't realize I needed until I actually used it. While I love adding a little highlight to the top of my cheekbones (especially Becca "Opal" highlighter & Nars "Albatross"), normally the look can be a little too shiny for everyday wear. Enter: Haloscope. It's the ideal dewy glow without the obvious high-shine. Light-reflecting, but not sparkly. I tried to swatch it on my hand in the photo below, but even that doesn't really do it justice. Just trust me on this one.
