Brows -Glossier -Boy Brow

First up this product is TINY, like a sample size, half the size of a regular mascara but costing £14. It was quite an insult to receive it to be honest. Having read the reviews I was expecting wonders for my sparse typically Chinese brows-the dark brow was a perfect colour for me but the product was so tricky to apply with what is essentially a mascara wand. I ended up with clumpy brows, and needed to brush through to smooth them out. It was also difficult to get any definition on the inner brows and I needed to touch up with my regular eyebrow pencil (Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Pencil £7.99). The product does stay but it hasn't really changed my world in the way I had expected. Perhaps if you have more brow to start with it would be great to enhance them but unfortunately it doesn't work for me.


Cleansers -Glossier -Milky Jelly Cleanser

I am sadly one of the few people this didn’t work for. I’m a big Into The Gloss fan, so had high hopes for the product. I was after a simple daily cleanser to add into rotation with my others.
Unfortunately it made my skin feel like it was burning, left me with little angry bumps along my jawline and bright hot red blotches on my cheeks.
I will not be using this again.

*UPDATE*
And then there’s the customer service.. I emailed Glossier to tell them of my experience with this product and couldn’t be happier with how they responded. I had heard back from them within 24 hours and their response was comprehensive, apologetic, personable and educational. The product still doesn’t work for me, but the company sure does.
Thanks Glossier

So disappointing. More like a balm than a highlighter, so if that’s what you’re after it might work for you. I wanted a simple cream highlighter to liven up my face. Maybelline Master Strobing stick is 1000 x better than this one. Or go for a NARS multiple or Becca’s fluid highlighters

Cleansers -Glossier -Milky Jelly Cleanser

Smells great, doesn’t foam at all, it’s really ideal for somebody who find foam cleanser too stripping.
Texture wise, it is goopy gel like that’s sits and won’t move on your palm.
It’s a little pricey but it last very long for me so it’s worth paying that money to get it.
And like others said, it doesn’t take off makeup; that’s true. It didn’t remove my lip tint either. The formula is too gentle so you’ll probably need to double cleanse if you have to take off makeup and use this product as a 2nd step cleanser. I will repurchase if I don’t find any better products than this.

This stuff is impressive! Glossier is a company that definitely shines more in makeup than skincare. I enjoy their makeup offerings. So, I like my natural brows, I think they're nice, I've wanted to use brow products over the years just to amp the polish a bit and look a bit more put together, not draw on a whole new brow. Every product I've tried (pomades and pencils) has just looked too fake to me. If I took the time and really worked at it I could probably achieve a nice natural look, but I wanted something quick and easy. I didn't really have high hopes for Boy Brow, I got brown, and it immediately looked too dark coming out of the tube, but I worked a little into my brows and it blended nicely. At first I was a little freaked out, just because I'm used to wearing nothing, but a few hours later I looked in the mirror and thought "Wow, I look better than usual", and I realized it was the Boy Brow! I suppose there are other products like this on the market, but this is the first brow product in this style I've tried, and I give it a thumbs up. Only reason it gets four lippies is the packaging is tiny and it's rather expensive. Heads up, Glossier has incredible customer service and fast shipping. So if the Instagram brow trend isn't for you, check out this product!

Lips -Glossier -Generation G

I wanted to order a bunch of these when Glossier was made available in the UK but then I thought I'd try one and see if I liked it. I have to say, it's everything I thought it would be. I'm not a fan of very opaque lipsticks for daytime, and I was just looking for something that would be translucent and leave a sheer wash of color. This is exactly it. If feels balm-y, but not overwhelmingly so, if that makes sense; I like tinted balms, but usually I'll feel like I have a layer of grease on my lips, and it's unpleasant. This one feels very lightweight in comparison, but it doesn't dry out my lips. The texture is exactly what I've always needed from a lipstick but never found anywhere, because instead of looking glossy, it's rather matte, but not like the matte lipsticks that are everywhere now and feel very powdery. I have the shade Like, which is a sheer pink, and honestly to me, the best thing. I love daytime makeup that will leave people wondering if I'm wearing anything, but will just enhance my features so that I look nice. I have to add that I can apply this without having to look in a mirror. I saw that some people were struggling with the packaging; it's not my case, hope it lasts. I want to try Zip now!

Brows -Glossier -Boy Brow

As with all glossier products it seems - this product is tiny.

I am fair skinned and have slightly thick, black eyebrows that are sparse in some areas, if I use full on brow products such as brow dips it looks garish on me. I don't really shape my eyebrows, just pluck stray hairs. I bought boybrow in black and I actually really liked it.

It looks so natural, my eyebrows look slightly darker and the sparse areas are kind of just slightly brushed over in colour. As someone who doesn't wear makeup this is so flattering. If your into a natural look try this out. I was originally going to buy the clear one as I was afraid the black would be too harsh, but I'm so happy I got the black.

If only they made this bigger! If you wear makeup everyday, this I imagine, will run out very quickly.

Lip Treatments -Glossier -balm dotcom

For the price being paid for this product, it is too small. That aside this is a cute balm I bought in the 'birthday cake' flavour - it smells so good and is glittery. So far I've only used it on the lips, it works well as a lip balm but its' moisturising benefits don't last as long as it should. I can definitely see it being multi-functional. It is very thick coming out of the tube, you will have to squeeze a lot to get product out. The packaging is pretty.

I would repurchase only because I have a discount, otherwise no. It's an absurdly small amount of product for the price, it looks better than it delivers.

Blush -Glossier -Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

I love my cloud paint's! I currently own puff and dusk, dusk being my fav out of the two. I dont really have anything negative to say about this product other than it only has a lasting rate of about 3-4 hours... but i find that quite common (at least with my skin) with cream blushes. The price is justifiable because of the pigmentation of the product, you only need a little bit.. so honestly i could see it lasting you forever!!! I really want to purchase haze in the future.

Dusk is a complimenting and defining colour that is great for every day use and suits my skin tone and every makeup look great. Puff is one i only reach to the odd day, it is brightening i find and gives the skin a nice healthy appearance.

Just be careful of the squeeze power of these guys - when i first opened mine a lot of product accidentally came out due to my grip.

i loved the scent of this product... however it just didn't do enough for me to want to repurchase again. This is the only product from glossier that i feel like i feel way to much into the hype. It just seems unreasonable to me to spend over 20 dollars on something (plus shipping) this simple and easy to get a hold off at MUCH lower prices

I have two of the three haloscope highlighters. To me, these are just a meh product... i don't hate them but i also don't love them either. This product is a good low maintenance highlighter... but be weary that it is quite thick and can look on the greasy side very easy. As i have oily skin, I find it is best to use this product on days when its less humid or my skin is on the dryer side, because this can go from cute to oily quickly!!

I have the birthday cake flavored balm and It smells yummy, is moisturizing, and the glitter in it is very fine and not the least bit gritty on my lips. This product is comparable to Aquaphor, and I would not repurchase due to the fact that it's such a close dupe. I also like that I can use plain Aquaphor for dry skin (such as under the eyes) all over my body and on my nails; I would refrain from using the birthday BDC like this since it's fragranced and contains glitter.

Fragrances -Glossier -You

on 11/2/2017 4:07:00 PM

I received a sample of this perfume with my recent Glossier order. On my skin, this dries down to a musty floral, which is just not my taste. I was expecting something more creamy, warm, and fresh based on the descriptions on the site and Instagram. My family said it smelled decently on me, but again, it's just not my cup of tea and not something I enjoy wearing. I was also disappointed with the bottle design of You; I was expecting something a little more aesthetically pleasing to the eye for $60.

To be honest, I initially bought this product on an excited whim after first discovering Glossier (and their cute packaging, etc.).
I received the product and immediately fell in love. This product gives me the perfect dewy ( not glittery) glow and is pretty easy to apply and blend. Thus far, I have only tried the Quartz.

I LOVE THIS!!!

I tried it at the Glossier showroom in NY and bought it instantly - I honestly don't think I've ever been so clearly impressed with a soap-type product before.

The product comes out like oil but foams up when you lather it on. It makes you feel so, so squeaky clean and refreshed after a shower - but it's not drying at all. In fact, my skin is baby smooth afterwards. The smell is nice yet subtle - I'm not a fan of rose scents (in fact I really dislike them) but I find it undetectable in this one.

Packaging is also good - it comes with both a pump AND a simple twist cap, meaning that you can travel with it without it spilling everywhere.

To me the only con is that it gets used up quite quickly. Would definitely buy again!
