Just like everyone else, on the day that Glossier opened its doors to the UK I speedily popped one or two bits into my basket and hit the checkout. They arrived in their pink bubblewrap pouch promptly.
I feel like with this Glossier hype, people have gone either one of two ways: totally overboard and ordered everything ever and spent all their money (and good for them!) or bought zero to three things to test the water like a big toe in a pool of millennial pink makeup and skincare.
From what I can tell, no one has really bothered with any of the body stuff like shower gel and whatever. Maybe £15 for some body-wash is where the line is drawn. Maybe no one really cares about shower gel because you can get some fire smelling ones in Tesco. Who knows.
As we’re all new to the world of Glossier (more or less) it would be stupid to write an actual review right now. I mean, I’ve literally only owned these products for 5 days or something. No one can review a product in 5 days. No one.
What I will say, however, is that I’m pretty happy with my purchases.
They’re obviously beautiful and fit in with the whole blog vibe, so from a purely aesthetic angle they’re perfect. White and millennial pink and all very clean and smart and lovely to photograph. Seriously, they’d look good shot by a baby messing around with an iPhone 3.
The Super Pure serum has been slowly worked into my bedtime routine, applied after cleansing and before moisturising. It has a texture as close to water as you can get, and smooths the skin nicely. So far I’ve noticed a tiny difference in my skin – it’s supposed to be fab for drying out spots and blemishes – so I’ve got my fingers crossed for more pronounced results with more use. To be honest, I just really like the way it feels on my face so I’m happy with it either way.
I also picked up the cute little Cloud Paint tube in the colour Beam. I much prefer a coral/orange toned blush so Beam is actually really exciting. It’s super orange and gives my skin a really warm, tanned glow while no being OTT. I’ve worn it every day since it arrived and will continue to do so in the future.
I also managed to spill some on my white duvet cover and a wash and some stain gel later it still is nowhere near to coming out so… yay!
What’s most interesting to me about Cloud Paint is that it tends to work and look better on a lighter base. It looks fab when applied as part of my normal routine as a blusher, but it looks almost better when worn with no base at all and just a bit of brow and cheek colour. I guess that’s Glossier’s whole vibe though, isn’t it? Enhancing natural beauty rather than providing tools to hide it away.
It’s just really nice to take ten minutes less in the morning to look ten times as fresh and ready for the day.
Fingers crossed I’ll stay happy and maybe even put in another teeny order come pay day! x
