Gels/Soaps -Glossier -Body Hero Daily Oil Wash

This definitely one of my new favorite body washes. It smells heavenly and does not strip your skin. When Glossier does it well they really do it well. This is probably my favorite product from them. I have already purchased another bottle! Only complaint is that it goes too fast since you have to use several pumps.

I also have to commend the brand for having an excellent ad campaign for this product and the body lotion.

Lips -Glossier -Generation G

I bought this in two shades: Zip and Cake. Zip turned out to be a lot brighter than I had expected. Cake, however, looks great! It doesn't give my lips too much color but somehow makes my face look more "together" if that makes any sense?

But as much as I like this product, I can't imagine ever again spending this much money on what is basically a tinted lip balm again. I was curious about it, so I bought it once and tried it. I got it out of my system, so it'll be back to my Burts Bees Tinted Balm when these run out.

I really wanted to like this product but it broke me out! First i thought it was just from the warm weather and suncreen i was using but when i removed this from my rutin everything went back to normal. The formula is so thin, when you open the cream it almost everytime flows out and is rinny, i thought this would be nice for the summer but i need something more thicker for my dry skin. I like the ingredients but it’s something in it my skin dont like. Will give another try when i dont have to use it with sunscreen over. Cute packaging tho!

Lips -Glossier -Generation G

If it wasn't for the price I would give 4 stars. As a fan of the No MakeUp MakeUp look I love the idea: sheer color AND matte. But... you can get 'sheer' color by just applying your matte lipstick lightly with a lip brush. So the only point of getting a sheer matte lipstick would be saving some seconds but, the price is too much for that. If I were in the USA this would cost cheaper, MAYBE I would purchase then. But it costs even more expensive for those of us outside of the USA and it's not worth the price.

The price of this really shouldn't be more than like, say, Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balms. And I actually think Burt's Bees is better quality including the packaging, just not matte.

Lip Treatments -Glossier -Birthday Balm Dotcom

Hands down favorite lip product. It smells like they shoved a freshly baked vanilla cake into the tube. It soothes and mends extremely well no matter how badly my lips are chapped. The subtle little sparkles are cute, as is the holographic tube itself. The design on the tube flakes off over time but that isn't a deal breaker in any way. Worth every cent.

Blush -Glossier -Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

foto

Cloud Paint is my favorite Glossier product and perfectly embodies the brand's aesthetic - the product blends into the skin with ease, sets quickly but still is seamless when more product is applied over an initial application, doesn't feel tacky or heavy on the skin, and mixing shades is super easy. I've used it as eyeshadow too with no issues, just a nice sheer wash of color. Honestly couldn't ask for anything else beyond an expanded color range.

The only downside is the packaging - the paint tube is very cute, but maybe not the best option for this product as it's much more of a liquid than a cream. The tube itself it made of a plastic that is rigid to a point where a gentle squeeze ends up pushing out too much product unless I'm holding the tube vertical. A finer tip on the tube would probably give a little more control; I adore this product and hate that I've wasted any due to packaging.

Mascara -Glossier -Lash Slick Mascara

on 7/13/2018 2:00:00 PM

Like one of the previous reviewers, my fave mascara is UD Perversion and I measure every mascara I try against it. Perversion is an inky dark, wet formula, and the brush is fat and traditional (i.e. not plastic). It gives a nice dramatic look that I don't find to be 'too much.' Lash Slick is pretty different from it but I still really like it.

It has a drier formula and has a little bit of drag when you apply, which is a personal pet peeve of mine since it just gives me the willies but it's not too bad tbh. (That's why I normally stay away from plastic wands.) It takes slightly more time to build up, and the effect is more natural (obviously the Glossier aesthetic is at play here) but you will get fluttery butterfly lashes that aren't A Look. You will look pretty. There is more length enhancement than volume, but you'll still get some volume. I like the way it feels on, and it doesn't smudge or flake at all during the day. I will say that removing it isn't a perfect process, it comes off in flakes/chunks, and I often wake up in the morning with giant black flakes all over my face but this is better than having it happen ~when it matters~. It's also not as black as I'd like, but I have olive skin and dark hair/lashes, so I need a truly dark black for absolute lash perfection. They only make one shade currently, so I assume they wanted to not make it as universal as possible. They'll probably expand the shade range eventually.

The one area where it outperforms Perversion is that it doesn't smear under my eyes. I have to make sure there's no cream under my eyes and wear primer there too if I want my beloved Perversion to look its best on long, hot days, but Lash Slick stays where you put it.

I recommend this, and would buy it again if I was in the mood or want free shipping—I'll probably stick with Perversion because I like it a smidge better and I can get it in-store.

Sidenote, the Glossier order containing this mascara got messed up—I ordered 1 x boy brow, and 1 x lash slick and 2 boy brows got shipped to me (no lash slick). The Glossier customer service team could not have been nicer or more helpful. They immediately sent me the mascara and let me keep the extra boy brow for no charge, and also covered the mascara shipping. They even followed up since I didn't respond to their last email (because it was 4th of July and I was...busy). I know the brand gets a lot of hate but boy brow is my absoute fave brow product and they have some other standout stuff too (I also love their clear lipgloss).

I think the Glossier packaging is cute, but it's not 100% well-made, and they could take some of the $$ they put towards pink bubble pouches and stickers and make it better. j u s t m y t w o c e n t s

Eye Shadow -Glossier -Lidstar

on 7/11/2018 4:36:00 AM

Glossier can be a hit or miss, so I really did not know what to expect from their newest cream shadows at first. I bought two shades based on online recommendations (Fawn, Cub) and frankly these are the only two colours I am willing to wear on a daily basis now.

Why? They're easy. Don't get me wrong, I love a full on glam situation, however, these shadows are perfect for an everyday wear. They are long-lasting, don't crease and give a very nice glow. Not glitter, not shimmer -pearlescent glow. They don't require a primer either. If you don't like to fuss much with your eye makeup, just pop a flattering light-reflective shadow, add some mascara and run out the door, these are brilliant for that.

I have unedited swatches plus more application tips and a makeup look in a separate review here for those of you curious about the new range (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/07/10/Glossier-Lidstar-Review) hope it helps! At this point I am happy with both colours that I have, I don't feel like getting all six, two is a good number.

I'm almost done with my first tube of Boy Brow and I will definitely order again. This does a wonderful job of making my brows look fuller. Great price for the value of the product.

Love this! Smells great and is hydrating! Just re-ordered


Blush -Glossier -Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

foto

I purchased Dusk & it really compliments my NC30 skin tone. The formula is really nice, blends nicely even on top of powder. It stays the whole day I have this on. One thing I notice is that every time I remove my makeup, the area where I have the blush on is crazy red but it goes away after a few minutes. I was afraid I was breaking out or anything but I did not. This happens every time, which is weird. Overall I really love this product & I have since purchased another 2 shades.

Mascara -Glossier -Lash Slick Mascara

I’m really loving this for everyday wear! I’m normally a Tarte Lights Camera Lashes user, but I was placing an order and added this mascara to try it out. Stays on all day with no flakes or smudges, which can be a problem for me due to oilier skin. It doesn’t provide a ton of volume, but emphasizes length and definition. It’s a little wet going on and takes a few minutes to dry down. But I’m liking the results for daytime wear!

Loose Powders -Glossier -wowder

I love the packaging of this powder, the dispenser is like the MUFE HD loose powder. I bought the shade light and it oxidizes quite a bit, and I’m not very pale in summer, but this could definitely be an issue in winter. keeps me matte but not flat for many hours, but I don’t think it’s worth the money. It’s sitting in a dresser of extras.


Brows -Glossier -Boy Brow

I ordered this in June and have maybe used it 5 times. It took forever to ship to me and I had been so excited to try it. It’s a really small tube, however, the price just doesn’t justify it. The brush picks up way too much product and the gel itself doesn’t have the greatest hold. I’m disappointed that I wasted money on this.
