Tinted Moisturizer -Glossier -Perfecting Skin Tint

I really love Glossier and their philosophy of skin first, makeup second. How they are very minimalist and their package is very cute. I am a graphic designer and mother so these two things attracted me to the brand immediately. So onto the tinted moisturizer: I am giving this 3 stars because first, you must have perfect skin. I don't have terrible skin but I do have discoloration from previous acne scarring. This will probably cover them by 10%. It is both good and bad. Good because it allows your skin to be seen and to breathe (when you just want to run errands and look natural), but bad because if you don't have perfect skin it's not going to cover up much. One thing I did love, as with all of glossier product line up (which I own most, if not all of) is how moisturizing everything is especially if you have dry skin like me. I guess even if your skin is oily too.. But their products really balanced out my skin. Including this tinted moisturizer. So in conclusion, try this if you just really want a TINT. Do not expect it to cover up much. Great for running errands, everyday wear. Just a few drops onto your skin, lip balm and you're good to go!

I jumped on the glossier bandwagon because who doesn't want that minimalist, fresh, cool-girl look! I have this in light, which probably doesn't make much difference because the product is so sheer. It has a very watery consistency that makes it easy to spread. I have dry skin with the odd blemish, but I feel better with some coverage to even things out and add some glow. This product is SO difficult to detect on my skin- as in- it's hard to tell whether I even put it on or not, even with liberal application.

Unlike other reviewers, I do not feel like a grease ball after applying this even after a full day of wear. The main issue for me is that the effect is just too subtle to make a difference. I have found use for this product by mixing with others to adjust the colour and sheerness- currently I am mixing it with a Bareminerals tinted moisturizer that is a smidge too dark. The resulting blend is still a bit sheer but better than the Glossier tint on it's own. I will use the product up in this way, and may try different combinations.

I am on the fence about the packaging because it can be difficult to get the product out, but I like that you can see how much product is left in the bootle. At 32$ CAD I do not think this is good value all considered.

i was so so excited to get this stuff in the mail. it came it a cute baby pink package with stickers and my two balm dot coms. i got cherry and birthday balm. i just wanted a nice lip balm with a tint to wear when i have no make up on and i had heard so much about this cult classic. after a couple of weeks the cute packaging turned ugly with all of the colors rubbed off. i also had no clue this product contains lanolin. right away i was disappointed.. it gave 0 shine or nourishment to my lips.. it just felt like a weird film on my lips. i kept using it before bed even though my lips werent very dried to begin with. a month later, i have stretched, raw, almost chemical burns on my lips. i have never had this reaction in my life. it is painful and uncomfortable and nothing is helping soothe it. not to mention this horrible product was like $12 per tiny bottle. i threw these two balms out and am back to using my plain old smiths rose salve. never again.

This is an extremely well formulated cream blush. But like any other cream blushes please don't expect the staying power to be the same as a powder blush. It blends in seamlessly and the colours are truly beautiful however you must make sure to blend fast since the product settles pretty quickly.
I use the shade dusk and it gives a very natural bronzy flush to my NC20ish skin tone. The price is not bad for the amount of product you get but the only good thing about this is that it's fun putting it in. Powder blush fares way better in terms of longevity and colour selection. Also in the packaging it says you should use it up in 6 months which is very short.

This product doesnt do anything. Glossier has really done well with the marketing. I believe when you are buying this product you buy the idea of being a person with perfect skin. If you are like me who likes to even out the skin, I believe a primer would do a better job..

I started my collection with two shades, but quickly bought the remaining two.

I must say that this is hands down the easiest cream blush formula available on the market (at this point). It is not waxy, sticky, gloppy or overly balmy. These feel like a baby of moisturizer and stain - they are airy and whipped. I feel like little goes a verrry long way, so one tube is going to last you ages (even with everyday use).

My personal favourite is Beam. I think this shade will brighten up any complexion, but unfortunately there are not that many shades for beauties with a deeper skin (which is something that Glossier have to fix). If you are around light-medium or even medium - you will really enjoy these. I have close-ups and swatches in a separate review here (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/01/12/Worth-The-Hype-Glossier-Cloud-Paint) if you want more inspiration; you can even see what Beam looks like on the face, as well as read my application tips.

Overall, I love these. Haze is the only shade that can be tricky, but the rest are amazing and wear all day long. Plus you can mix and match them too.


Lips -Glossier -Generation G

I wanted to love this product so so much. I mean, a sheer AND matte lipstick?? YES PLEASE. You rarely see that combination together. If a lipstick is sheer, then it's also most likely to be glossy. I bought this in Jam and Leo. The colours are lovely, and Leo especially is a really unique nude warm brown that isn't too orange that I don't see often. Great MLBB on my medium tanned skin.

My one big gripe is that this product sinks into the grooves of your lips. And it doesn't even do it as it wears off, it does it straight after application. So unless you've got perfect lips that have been scrubbed and smoothed and is naturally not dry, you can't use this product. It doesn't apply smoothly and it clings on to dry patches, and highlights any irregularities in your lip texture instead of smoothing them out. I guess the somewhat patchiness of the lipstick is what people like about it when they say it looks like a natural stain?

Packaging is pretty lousy, as most other reviews would agree. It's also quite a small lipstick which means you're not really getting your money's worth. Longevity is average.

Lovely colours, but that's the only thing good about them. I suppose if you've already got nice lips with no problems then this is a safe option for you. I wouldn't be repurchasing nor would I recommend it to anyone who has deep grooves, or even a hint of dryness in their lips.

EDIT: I find that since moving to a more humid tropical climate where my lips are less dry, this product does work better. Still applies quite patchy though.

I don't understand this product. I got swept up in all the Glossier hype and bought this without checking the ingredients, but this is a petroleum jelly based balm, which explains why I felt no moisturising effects whatsoever. I wanted to use it as a lip balm, but since it's petroleum jelly, it just stays on the surface of the lips and doesn't penetrate through. I find it doesn't do much moisturising at all, my lips stayed as cracked as it would be without any balm on. It's a slippy texture that's a little more sticky than what I'd like, not as much as a gloss but definitely more than a usual balm, which again makes me question why this is supposed to be used on dry skin spots when it's non-penetrative and sticky? It'll probably just get on clothes and you'd then have to reapply.

The packaging is also not great, the applicator is tiny so it's not convenient for the lips, and the product easily gets into the part where the cap screws on, which makes it really unsightly and unhygienic. And because the applicator is so small, your lips inevitably end up getting scratched on the screw on bit (which you can imagine is reeeally pleasant when you've already got dry lips). The only way I can see this work is by using fingers. Which defeats the point of a tube packaging.

Nothing about this product is good. I guess if you like petroleum jelly in your products and that's something you've experienced has worked for you, then I suppose balm dot com would be good for you. In my opinion, that just makes this is very fancy overpriced version of Vaseline. If you're thinking of getting this product, I would recommend just going down to your local shop and getting Vaseline, it's pretty much exactly the same thing.

Lovely product in general, but nothing wow about it. I have it in dusk, which is a nice brown-pink shade that gives me a subtle flush on my medium-tanned skin. It's great for a natural blush, and it's easy to blend. It's longevity is average for a cream blush, which means it's below average for blushes in general. It's easy to apply, and easy to blend in. I think it's quite a good product for beginners because it' more natural and forgiving than a typical cream blush, and easier to handle than a liquid.
I don't really have much else to say about it to be honest, it's a good cream blush that does what cream blushes are supposed to do. I'll happily continue to use it, but I won't be repurchasing - I think there are other better cream blushes than this, and especially at this price point.

Cleansers -Glossier -Milky Jelly Cleanser

This product buuuurns the hell out of my face! I have dry/sensitive skin and I do not recommend this product for those (like me) who has ultra sensitive skin. The reason I’m giving this two lippies instead of one is because it does a good job in removing make up, but my micellar water does the same thing without the burn


Masks -Glossier -Moisturizing Moon Mask

foto

Okay, so this mask is meant to be used in tandem with galaxy greens, and I actually had pretty good results with those two together. My face felt a little bit sting-y while each was on, and when I'd take the mask off my skin was a little pinker than usual, but honestly softer than EVER. Like, the softest it's ever been. I'd do it before bed and just make sure to put on a nice thick overnight face cream to seal in my results :)

Smell for both is pretty innocuous, the consistency for this one is like a thick gel. I had to issues with packaging or anything else. They are a little pricey, but using them once a week they lasted me about 2.5 months.

Someone gave me a really good tip for this moon mask one, they said to wear a thin layer to bed as an overnight mask, I had really good results with that, maybe even better than using it as a mask.

Overall, not certain whether I'll buy them again, but would definitely recommend them to a friend! And I have a bff 10% off code if you are on the fence. http://bff.glossier.com/hqIV6


Lips -Glossier -Generation G

foto

I have generation g in Jam and I actually kept it in my purse for times when I suddenly wished I had put on lipstick before leaving the house (like running into my crush at trader joes, for example). It's super easy to apply, does go on a little dry, but it's a semi-matte.

I had my best luck with it when I'd put on a nice heavy lip balm about 10 minutes before, and then wipe most of the lip balm off (along with any dry flaky lip stuff) right before applying the generation g.

I think the look it produces is feminine and effortless, glossier's whole thing.. and I will definitely be replacing it when I run out!

I have this in quartz and it is a nice addition to my routine. It makes my skin look radiant without being too shiny or weird. I have had good luck with glossier's makeup so far, although I know the formula isn't for everyone. My skin seems to agree with it!

Brows -Glossier -Boy Brow

I have this in Brown. I honestly don't know why this is so hyped up. I read everywhere that it's a game changer, so I bought it. I have weird eyebrows, as they're kind of sparse when they're trimmed, but very thick. This doesn't really help both cases. It doesn't add much fluff, I still need to use a pencil to fill them in. It doesn't tame them either- kinda combs some of them, but it doesn't hold other ones in place. I really didn't see any change and I don't really need it, I think. It's also too light for brown eyebrows, as it has a weird white base. Won't repurchase, I like the Eyeko Brow Gel better.

Honestly I am completely all over the place with my beauty product consumption. I have the attention span of a cocker spaniel in an aquarium. Not only is this the first product I’ve ever bought *twice,* it’s also the first product I’ve ever bought three times. My face isn’t on if I’m not wearing it!
