After seeing them everywhere, I got a little obsessed with Glossier. I was reeled in by the amazing branding and the minimalist approach to makeup. I had a little nose around their website and found the Phase 2 set – it was love at first site. In the set, you get their famous Boy Brow (tinted brow gel), the Generation Z Lippie (tinted balm – light lipstick) and the Stretch Concealer. Here are my thoughts on each product and Glossier itself.
THE PACKAGING – 10/10
My, My, My Glossier you’ve really out done yourself! As well as what I ordered, I received a sticker sheet, a “Thank you for Purchasing” card – these are the best and add such a personal touch AND I got a free sample of their Priming Moisturiser. Not to mention the infamous pink bag it comes in: (I stupidly forget to take a photo of the bags and don’t want to be sued for using Glossier’s Images so take a peep at Google – I’m sure you’ll find a photo on there)
B O Y B R O W :
The Boy Brow has a very tiny wand, which I don’t mind as it makes it easier to get precise strokes. Mine is in the shade ‘Brown’ and I must say, this product did NOT disappoint. Whenever I’m in a rush or don’t feel like doing the full shebang to my brows (filling them in which takes hours if you were wondering), I just slap a bit of this through my brows and voila – I don’t look like a brow-less egg anymore! My natural hair colour is dirty blonde and I’ve dyed it a Chocolate Brown. As my natural hair is so light, my brows are there just not very visible and so it is crucial I darken/fill them in or else I look like a creature from the depths of Mars. Anyway, back to the product, this is such a time saver! I don’t know how I lived without it. If I find a dupe for this, I will give it a shot as I probably won’t repurchase this. It’s a great product but I can’t justify spending that amount of money on a brow gel.
G E N E R A T I O N Z – L I P P I E : ( IGNORE MY CRUSTY NAILS – I’M A BITER)
This is staying straight in my basket. I love love love this! It is so build-able and give a natural tint. Mine is in the shade Like and I think there’s four other shades so you can pick to suit you.
Here is a very light layer of like on my lips. It’s such a natural sheen and I am a big fan of how it looks. Also just to mention, all these products are great for travelling! They’re such a good size.
This is Glossier’s ‘Balm Dot Com’ in Birthday Cake added on top. Unfortunately, I have managed to lose this product! I have no idea how but I’m sure it will turn up somewhere.
S T R E T C H C O N C E A L E R :
Last but not least, we have the concealer. I am personally not a huge fan. Glossier’s branding is very natural and minimal and this concealer fits that brief but I feel it’s not really a concealer. It doesn’t conceal anything. It’s great for brightening and leaves a dewy layer behind but as far as coverage goes, there’s nothing there. You could easily get the same effect by buying a low coverage cheap concealer at Superdrug or Boots. This product is not worth the price in my opinion.
Anddddd… That’s a wrap! I hope this has helped you to decide if you’d be spending your money in the right place. Might I add, in the phase everything is customisable so if you didn’t like the colour of the lipstick or the concealer is too light for you, they have different shades you can select from.
