A few of my favorite things… from Glossier

I shared this as a guest post last year, and I thought I’d share it with you all. Glossier really is a brand that I love using, and this is a collection of my favorite products from Glossier and a few of my favorite things about them.

Since I first discovered the Glossier, I’ve been impressed with the brand. They are all about skincare first and make up second, and their products really reflect this statement, and if you’re looking to create a more natural, dewey look when it comes to your daily makeup routine then this is definitely a brand that you are going to want in your beauty collection.

Other pluses when it comes to Glossier, all of their products are cruelty free (i.e. not tested on animals) and they are perfect for those of us with sensitive skin.

For the face…

The environment can often strip our skin of much needed moisture so we need to replenish it to keep our skin looking fresh. What I love most about the Priming Moisturizer is not only can it be worn on it’s own when you’re going for a more natural look, but it also works as a base before applying foundation. (Nobody likes a caky look that you get when you apply foundation to dry skin.)

The Stretch Concealer was one of the first products that I purchase from Glossier. At first I wondered if this product would actually work as described as so many concealers either don’t really conceal much or worse yet you can’t find one that matches with your skin tone. This stretch concealer checked all the boxes for me. It does ‘stretch’ with your skin and you can’t even tell you actually put on any concealer. I like to apply it with a beauty blender for the best application, but your finger tips work too.

The eyebrows… yes, the eyebrows.

If you’ve been looking for a more natural way to give your brows a fuller look Boy Brow give you just that. Not only does it tame those hairs that like to go a little crazy sometimes, but it helps fill in the areas where your brows might not be as full as they once were (in my case about the middle to the end of my eyebrows). Plus it smells great (without being overpowering) and doesn’t feel heavy or waxy like many brow products tend to.

For the cheeks…

One of the things I loved about the Cloud Paint before I even purchased it, was the videos on Glossier’s site. They have demo’s of each blush on different skin tones which gives really helps you make your decision on which one or ones you want to try. I’ve been introducing a lot of peach into my makeup look and wardrobe for summer, I decided to go with the Dusk. Since it’s a cream blush, a little goes a long way, and I would just go with the less is more at first and then if you want to go darker just add a little more. Remember to blend well along your cheekbones for the best look. It also can double as an eye shadow if you’re wanting to go with a particular palette throughout your look.

Add a little glow…

The Haloscope product is available to three options depending on the look you’re going for. For a night out I’d go with Moonstone, but for when you just want to give your face a dewey look I’d go with the Quartz. I like to apply it in a V shade from the side of my eye brow to just the start of my cheek bone for just a bit of glow, but of course it’s all up to you!

For the lips…

If you are going for a more natural look and just want to accent your lips natural color, Glossier’s Balm dotcom is definitely the way to go. They have it in Original (which is unscented and definitely an option that I like to go with in a lip balm) but you can also go with Cherry, Mint, Coconut or the new flavor Birthday!

Lip Gloss is also one of the newest additions to Glossier, and I like to use it as a finishing touch after applying one of the Generation G lipsticks. It doesn’t leave your lips feeling greasy, and you don’t have that annoying sticky situation that many glosses can create. Hair stuck to your lips in not cute.

Since I go more for pinks, rosy nudes and peach lip colors during the spring and summer months, I love the Cake (for peach) and Like (for pink) options in the Generation G lipsticks. You can go darker or lighter depending on what look you’re going for by applying more or less. One thing I would suggest if you tend to have drier lips like I do, is you’ll definitely want to finish (or start) your look off with either the balm dot com or the lip gloss to give your lips a little extra hydration.

At the end of the day, your skin still needs a little love, and Glossier has products for this too. These two products are often a part of my nightly beauty routine.

At the end of the day, you need a good make up remover, and I love this Milk Jelly Cleanser. Not only does it leave your skin smelling great, but it doesn’t strip any moisturize from your face, but actually hydrates it. Plus it’s also great to use on other areas that need a little extra moisture (for example your neck area).

Out of the three Serum options available, I’ve tried out Super Bounce. Since a little of this product goes a long way, I just use a drop or two and apply to the area around the eyes to help prevent any premature wrinkles by giving your skin an extra dose of moisturizer. Just tap into your skin with your finger tips and apply another round of Priming Moisturizer.
