Glossier

Glossier | Thoughts by Natalie

My first introduction to Glossier came from Boy Brow, their miracle brow pomade that has totally changed my brow routine (i.e. made it the easiest thing ever). Recently they released their new Phase 2 makeup set and I knew it was time to expand my Glossier collection.

The kit comes with Boy Brow, Generation G lipstick and Stretch Concealer. Before hitting the checkout button, I couldn’t resist adding in a Coconut Balm Dotcom and Perfecting Skin Tint. I tried on all the products as soon as they arrived in the mail, of course, and here’s a peek at how it all looked, as well as my thoughts on all the products…

Skin tint and concealer / I got both of these in the medium shade and it’s a perfect match. The skin tint is really nice and light, more like a filter and less like a mask. It doesn’t hide your skin, but rather makes it look like its best version. And the concealer is truly amazing—creamy, buildable and natural-looking. (In the photos I have it under my eyes and on a couple of blemishes.)

Boy brow / This is truly the best brow product I’ve tried (I wear it in brown). It can be used alone, or in combination with a pencil/powder if you really have sparse brows. But let me tell you, it really does make your brows look thicker and fuller than they are thanks to the color and the pomade texture. Seeing these photos where I’m literally wearing only Boy Brow on my brows (no pencil or powders underneath!), has me re-thinking the whole microblading idea, even though I think it is so, so fascinating.

Lipstick / I got the color like, and I was so surprised by how much I loved it! I am not a lipstick person, but this had a really nice matte stain finish that I loved. It’s buildable, too, so it can be as light or as dark as I want it to be. I definitely will be interested in adding other colors to my collection!

Balm dotcom / The consistency reminds me of Aquaphor, and I loved how thick it was because it doesn’t wear off easily. It’s a little thick when it comes out of the tube, so I rubbed it between my fingers to soften it and then applied it to my lips and cheekbones. The smell is delightful, and I can see myself ordering more of these to stash in my purse and car so I’m never without.
