Recently I have discovered (and subsequently become obsessed with) the new beauty brand: Glossier. The founder of the amazing website “Into The Gloss” created this brand, and I was blown away by how many of their products are new favorites. A beauty brand inspired by real life, the company aims to create new essentials and easy-to-use basics that form the backbone of any beauty routine. My love affair with Glossier started with their lipsticks, that are applied like a balm. I now own two of the Matte Lipsticks (in colors Like and Jam), Balm Dotcom (in regular and rose), Boy Brow (as mentioned in my monthly beauty buys post) and the Milky Jelly Cleanser. I love the price point of all the products and am so excited to share why they have truly become must-have’s in my skincare and makeup routine.
Generation G Matte Lipsticks
What started it all… In the search to discover a new berry shade of lipstick, I stumbled on Glossier. After reading great reviews about “Jam,” I took the plunge and never looked back. The perfect berry matte shade — it’s my lip staple. Applied like a balm, it’s east to build a strong color or keep it looking like a lip tint. After falling in love with “Jam”, I purchased the pale pink shade “Like” — and was not surprised to fall in love a second time.
Balm Dotcom Universal Skin Salve
Last year was a big travel year, and I needed to find something multipurpose for dry lips and skin. Enter, Balm Dotcom. It is literally the perfect skin salve that I use mainly on my lips, hands, and nails (which get especially dry). I’d also like to mention that nothing has EVER worked better or kept my lips more moisturized. After purchasing the “regular” (and finishing it) — I purchased a second in the “rose” scent.
Milky Jelly Cleanser
My newest Glossier purchase. After feeling bored with my current cleanser, it was a no brainer to give this one a try. The pH-balanced, creamy gel formula is made with a blend of five skin conditioners so your face is left feeling healthy and soft, never tight. Its cleansing power comes from the same gentle cleaning agents you’d find in contact lens solution, so it’s tough on impurities and still safe to use on your eyes. I’ve only used it for a couple of weeks, but so far I really like it. Makeup is easily removed, and my skin feels clean.
As mentioned in my monthly beauty buys post, this is the ultimate brow product. The creamy wax formula is inspired by traditional hair pomade for soft, flexible hold that doesn’t stiffen or flake. A sheer pigment load gives a natural oomph of color so brows look fuller and more even, and the tiny tapered brush allows for precise application. I use the “Blond” shade and plan to keep this in my makeup bag for a long time.
