Shimmer and Glossier

Without realizing it, my Instagram account probably subconsciously made me hungry for Glossier’s products with all of the low-key advertising popping up in my feed lately. How could I not know they even had a showroom right here in NYC?! I couldn’t help myself.

Glossier has already prided itself for some time now as being a “beauty brand for real life” and providing high quality skincare basics with natural-looking and easy to apply makeup to go on top. It’s actually quite a shock I haven’t jumped into this brand sooner, considering that their core values align perfectly with my aesthetic. Simple, easy, natural, beautiful. What’s not to love? Plus they have an affordable price point (always a bonus).

I went to their showroom in search of the new Cloud Paint, a cream blush that got a huge seat in the spotlight when makeup artists put in on the celebrities at the 2017 Oscars. It looked too amazing to pass up, even for a girl who NEVER wears blush. I ended up walking out with several different products so I wanted to tell you about them!

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser: I had heard great things about this cleanser months ago when I was doing research on the best products for my super dry skin. Turns out this cleanser is great for getting makeup off, especially eye makeup. It’s made with the same cleaning products as contact lens solution, so I don’t have to worry about irritating my eyes when I rub it all over to get that tricky mascara off!

Glossier Stretch Concealer: I don’t think I am ever going back to any other concealer; this stuff is fantastic. They design the product to blend in seamlessly with all skin colors even though the range of options is small. The formula has a thick consistency but rubs on lightweight, which provides super long lasting color that doesn’t look cakey.

Glossier Cloud Paint: Okay, do yourself a favor and try this stuff out. After the first day of wearing it to work, I got so many compliments on my skin on how glowing I looked, and when I let my BFF in on the secret she was shocked. The colors are so natural and blend in extremely well you just have to be careful to use only a tiny amount since it’s so concentrated. It dries into a beautiful texture and lasts all day. The Dusk color that I chose is the most amazing everyday skin enhancer/highlighter but the Haze would also be good for a bigger pop of color.
