Yes, I took the plunge yet again and ordered a few more products from Glossier. If you haven't read my first post reviewing the Haloscope and Boy Brow, then check it out here! Today I want to go through the new products I bought - what I liked, what I didn't, and everything in between. I don't know what came over me (maybe it's that I'm entirely working from home now and can browse the web whenever), but I really wanted to try a few more Glossier products and get the full effect of what their brand is going for. I was also having a tough time with my skin the past few months so I figured I should test out their products and see if they really do care about skin care first, beauty second and about making their customers glow from the inside out.
Super Bounce Serum
PRO: I really wanted a hydrating serum to put on after my toner and this has been perfect. It leaves the skin feeling bouncy (just as the name claims) and doesn't feel too sticky or goopy as other ones can feel. I'll be honest, I wasn't a big serum user back in the day, but now it's a necessary part of my skin care routine.
CON: Like any serum, it is a bit pricey and since I use it twice a day, it is dwindling pretty quickly.
PRO: I wanted a daily moisturizer that was lighter than my Pond's nightly moisturizer and this was a perfect choice. It's lightweight and feels incredibly smooth on the skin. It's thick enough to hold the makeup I put on after, but not too thick where I feel like the makeup is just going to slip right off.
CON: It claims to also lessen redness, however I haven't noticed any redness go away. My skin does get red fairly easily, so it might just not work for my skin type. However, I don't find that it does all that much for my skin.
Cloud Paint In 'Dusk'
PRO: This blush adds the perfect amount of natural colour to the face without being too overdone or not noticeable at all. I love that I can just pop it in my bag for on-the-go use or even apply to my lips for a slight tint. I also thought it would be hard to apply a liquid blush with my fingers, but it's been pretty easy.
CON: What I don't love is the packaging. The lid is too tricky to take off and put on and I find that the bottle just slips out of my hand because of how light it is. I also accidentally squirted the product all over my white sweater because I couldn't control it in my hands.
Lidstar In 'Fawn'
PRO: As soon as I saw the release of this product, I had to have it. I'm always looking for a simple glitter eyeshadow that stays in place all day long, but doesn't feel heavy on the lid. This colour is perfect for brownish-hazel eyes and the formula is super smooth and applies easily.
CON: The only issue I have is that it's a bit lighter than I would have wanted for a glitter, but that could just be personal preference. If I'm wearing a glitter eyeshadow, I want it to glow all the time, which I know can be very over the top. I also don't think the colour lasts very long on my oily eyelids, but I haven't tried applying it with a primer or anything underneath.
I hope you liked this mini product review. I'd love to know what you think about these products if you've tried them. Or which ones you're dying to try!
