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!

Products: 


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.

 

Review: 

 

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.
   
 Recommendations:
 
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!
