Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week so far and that you’re looking forward to your weekend. So today’s blog post is a makeup one. I have been wanting to try out Glossier for years now, and it is only just now that I’ve decided to order myself a bunch of their goodies. In this blog post, I’ll be showing you what I got, but, I’ve also attached a little artsy (or at least trying to be) video that shows how the makeup ended up looking. All the products below are linked in the title, so if you wish to check out any of the products, simply press the belonging title. I hope you like the sound of this blog post – if so please make sure to read on.
First of all, I really wanted to try this new glowy serum. It is not a serum in the sense, that you use it before moisturiser to give yourself a hydration boost. It is more of a glowy oil, which you use as the very last step in your skin care routine – before applying makeup – or at least that’s how I’m using it. It’s got a slightly sticky texture, however, it looks absolutely incredible on the skin, and I’m sure it’s going to be my holy grail for summer. It doesn’t leave glittery chunks on your face, as the shimmer is so finely milled, it leaves your skin looking hydrated, healthy and glowy.
Over this past year, I’ve come to realise that I’m not really a fan of high-coverage foundations. I think this has probably got the do with the fact that my skin is no longer troubled with acne, so I therefore want to embrace my natural, less blemished skin. I don’t mind showing small scars, moles or from time to time freckles on my skin. I think it is these little traits that make us look natural and like ourselves, although having said that, I also know how much frustration and shyness can come when being troubled with acne. I only wish to say that your natural skin is beautiful no matter what story it tells (I have just binged Bridgerton and am currently also reading Little Women – you can’t tell from my language, can you? Lol). Anyway, about this foundation I really like it. It gives a very sheer coverage, which only evens out the skin tone and leaves a good base for other makeup products.
I’ve always thought that pot concealers were dry and crumbly, however, this one by Glossier has truly made me think otherwise. It is so creamy, doesn’t crease and very easy to apply. It hasn’t got a lot of coverage, which for me makes it a perfect under eye concealer. I would highly recommend it if you’re on the hunt for a new under eye concealer, although, if it’s for covering up blemishes then perhaps it requires some layering.
I really love the idea of wearing lip stick, but honestly, most of the time I just end up wearing lip balm instead because I find that a lot of lip sticks just dry out my lips. So instead I really wanted a lip gloss that could give me that lushes shine and still have some hydration to it as well. This has quickly turned out to be one of my favourite lip products.
What got me drooling over Glossier in the first place was these cloud paints. It’s essentially a cream blush but in a tube, which makes the product easier to apply but also more hygienic. These blushers are so pigmented and creamy and they’re truly lovely to apply. A little goes a long way, but they’re certainly some of the most natural looking blushers I’ve ever tried. If you were to buy only one thing from Glossier, I would a) definitely say you should try one of their cloud paints b) have a lot of respect for you and your self control (hahaha).
If you’re struggling to make your eyebrows look bushy and fluffy like everyone wants these days, then do try out a glow gel. You may think that they can’t draw little hairs like other makeup products, however, brow gel is like texturizing spray for your brows. It defines every hair and makes your brows look thicker and bushier in the best possible way. This one by Glossier is no exception either. It has a tiny little brush which makes it easier to apply but it also defines every single hair better.
Here is the video, which I had so much fun putting together. I like that it makes this post more artsy and aesthetic, however, it also gives you an opportunity to get a better idea of how these products look. I absolutely love taking, planning and editing pictures, however, there truly is something about making videos, adding music and making a nice thumbnail. Please check it out!
That was all and everything from now. I hope you enjoyed this post, if so then please make sure to like it and leave me a comment telling me… If you’ve tried any products from Glossier? If you would like to try any? And lastly, what your favourite makeup product is at the moment – I’d love to know.
I wish you all a very merry weekend!
Lots of love
