Glossier Makeup Review

Good morning friends! It's been a long, tiring week, and I am SO glad it's almost Friday. Myles and I have plans to go hiking (!!), watch the LSU game, and then spend Sunday relaxing on the couch. What're your plans this weekend? Whatever they are, I hope they're good!


I recently purchased a few products from Glossier; a completely online makeup and skincare brand that has taken social media by storm. I was drawn in by their natural, dewy looking makeup and their hypoallergenic, paraben-free, fragrance free products that are not tested on animals. If you're looking for an affordable, natural alternative to what you're putting on your face, this might be it! I ordered the Perfecting Skin Tint and the Stretch Concealer, both in light.




I found that both were exactly what they claimed to be. Very light coverage, dewy natural finish, and while not moisturizing, not drying either, because they are heavily water based. I would recommend them for people with little to no skin issues as they are not high coverage in the slightest, but I still enjoy them. I use them on days where I just wanted to even my skin out a bit and brighten under my eyes without doing my whole face. I put a few drops of the Skin Tint on the back of my hand, use my Real Techniques face brush to pat it into my skin, and then put the concealer wherever I have redness or spots. You definitely need to set with powder as the watery formula can move and crease if it is not set.
Overall, the coverage was buildable, but still only to a light, natural finish, and the lasting power was pretty normal for other products similar to these. I would say if you have dry skin and want to try something a little lighter for everyday wear, go for it! If you have oily or problematic skin, I'd go for something a bit dryer and higher coverage! I'd rate it a 7/10, mostly because it is slightly more expensive and not applicable for everything, but is still natural and healthy for skin! I have sensitive dry skin and did not find it gave me any problems!
Here are a few other Glossier products I am looking forward to trying:
That milky jelly cleanser and the moon mask look too good!
