Pink Glossier pouches, how I have missed you! Needing to stock up on a skincare must-have, I made a Glossier order during their exciting ‘friendsofglossier’ sale, giving us all twenty percent off. Because I haven’t posted a Glossier haul since their London store was open pre-pandemic, I decided to go all out and get a few of their best-selling makeup products to try.

Milky Oil | £10

The first item of my order was a repurchase of their ‘milky oil’ waterproof makeup remover. I shared my first impressions of this in my haul last year, but the fact I had to get a second bottle is enough proof that this is a great product. I use this on a daily basis to remove eye makeup and brow product – a little goes a long way, and I’d estimate that pandemic aside, a bottle probably lasts about a year which I think is great value for money. As someone with combination skin, the area around my eyebrows tends to get pretty dry which a lot of other makeup removers tend to agitate, whereas milky oil is so gentle that I have had no problem with it whatsoever, which is why I’m such a fan.

 

Cloud Paint – Dusk | £15

Time for the first impressions! Cloud Paint, Glossier’s cream blush, is one of their most iconic products, with paint tube style packaging that is just the cutest. Despite not being a big blush person at all, I had been dying to try it because of its cult status, so compromised and went for the shade Dusk, which is described as a ‘brownish nude’ – not too pink for my already pink cheeks! I love how easy this is to apply; although I’d say it’s more of a liquid, rather than cream formula. It’s sheer and buildable which I really like as applying blush can be quite overwhelming if it’s very pigmented! If you’re a big blush fan, you have to try this, there’s a multitude of shades that all look really pretty.

Haloscope – Moonstone | £18

After an initial panic as I couldn’t work out how to twist the product up and worried all I would have is a tiny amount of product, I was really excited to try the haloscope highlighter. I’m very sad Glossier discontinued their other highlighter, the NiteShine liquid highlight, as that remains my favourite Glossier product ever, but I can understand why it is Haloscope that is considered an iconic Glossier product. It’s sleek packaging makes it super easy to use; just swipe on and blend in with a finger and you’re away! I went for the lightest of the three, Moonstone, an ‘opalescent glaze’, and I love that it is very natural.

 

Generation G Lipstick – Leo | £14

Can you believe, as a huge lipstick fan, that I had never tried a Glossier lipstick?! I had to rectify this immediately, purchasing not one but both of their different formulas. Firstly, the original Generation G – a sheer matte formula. I am totally obsessed with the formula, it glides on, is buildable, doesn’t feel like you have any product on and is very mask friendly – an important factor right now! I would describe the shade Leo as ‘your lips but slightly browner’ – I did expect it to be a bit darker, but am not disappointed at all as I know this is a shade I will get a ton of wear out of.

 

Ultralip Lipstick – Trench | £14

The newest addition to the Glossier makeup family – Ultralip. A balm, gloss, lipstick hybrid – certainly an intriguing concept! The formula is the exact opposite to Generation G – in a good way, Glossier have really covered all bases with their lip collection! It’s nourishing, very comfortable to wear – but would probably rub off onto your mask in mere minutes, so maybe save it for outdoor activities for now! The shade Trench is absolutely stunning, a ‘toffee brown’, very similar in tone to Leo – I was impressed with how much pigment it has, arguably more than the Gen Gs, as I never expected a balmy formula to have that much colour.

 

What are your favourite makeup products from Glossier? If you haven’t tried any before and fancy some of the products I have just shared (I recommend Milky Oil and Ultralip overall!), head here to get 10% off your first order. I’ve heard they are going to be releasing a very long-awaited bronzer this week, which I cannot wait to see!
