Hello! I recently placed an order at Glossier, a makeup/skincare brand that I have been wanting to try for awhile. This brand is known for their “natural” type makeup, and their very instagrammable packaging. I had heard numerous reviews on the Boy Brow and Balm Dot Com, and after seeing my cousin Katie wearing a sheer matte red from them that looked so pretty on her the other night- I knew I had to place my order!
Everything came in this little pink bubble wrap pouch. Super cute. It also came with stickers! Who doesn’t love stickers? I already stuck these onto the inside of my sentence-a-day journal.
First off, I really like the packaging. It’s hip and minimalistic. I also love the holographic on the Balm Dot Com.
Glossier’s #1 bestseller is the Boy Brow. This retails for $16, comes in four shades (clear, blonde, brown, and black), and I picked up the brown one. I have tried products similar to this before (Benefit Gimme Brow, Essence Make Me Brow), and I really like them! When it comes to brows, I like them very natural, so this product is perfect. It’s like a little mascara and you just brush it through your brows. It thickens the brows, adds a little bit of color and holds them in place.
Next up, the Haloscope Dew Effect Highlight Stick. This retails for $22, and comes in three colors, topaz (bronzey), quartz (champagney), and moonstone (opalescent glaze). Topaz looked too dark, Moonstone looked too clear, so I went with Quartz, which is so pretty and pearlescent. I love products in stick form like this, and this one is unique because the product is around a moisturizing core, and is supposed to give a pretty glow without glitter or shimmer.
I purchased the next product because of Katie, it is the Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick. This retails for $18, and comes in 6 different colors. After Katie told me it was a “Sheer Matte” formula, I was like, I HAVE TO HAVE THAT. I picked it up in the color Zip, which is the same color she had on, and it gives the look of a red stain on the lips. I LOVE that it’s matte, and still red, but not an in-your-face red. Sometimes you just want a little red. Like you just ate a cherry popsicle.
You really can’t tell from the swatch, but this is sooo pretty and chock full of iridescent shimmer.
Lastly, a product I’ve really been wanting to try, the Balm Dot Com. This retails for $12 and comes in 6 different colors/flavors. I knew I wanted the Birthday one, because I have heard it smells AMAZING, and is a collaboration with Milk Bar and their famous birthday cake. I love the squeezey tube packaging. The smell of this is just like a birthday cake, and I LOVE IT. It’s not really a fake smell either, it smells just like the real thing. It is very thick, and comes out whitish clear with shimmer. It is really pretty.
I am really happy with this order, and think I will love everything!
