Why The Glossier Hype Is Real


Last year saw a lot of trends in the blogging world. We had the millennial pink situ, marble everything and of course who could forget.....Glossier. After waiting what felt like forever for this brand to come over to the UK (or at least be available in the UK), and lets be frank we went mental for it. It wasn't just the products themselves that got all the attention, it was the packaging that these beauties came in. Who would of thought bubble wrap would be in so much demand, and I for one am in love with my two pink bubble wrap sleeves that go everywhere with me. 



Glossier's price point isn't bad, however some might argue that for the money the products are quite small. Lets take the Glossier balm Dotcom, it's £10 for one tube which yes is pricey. It's not that bad when you compare to the likes of NUXE RĂªve de Miel which is also £10 and 15ml, it's just the packaging is quite deceiving. 

I can hear you all now "but are the products actually good?". Well here's my run down on the products I have, and use on the regular because I actually genuinely love them (and how they look). 



Priming Moisturizer | Prepping my face with this bad boy in the mornings is so nice and works really well rubbed in with your fingers, or even with a nice soft brush. Especially good if you have dry skin as it's so moisture surged. Its quite a thin consistency and is quite cold which is lovely first thing to wake you up. I find it does the job perfectly for me as someone with very dry areas on their face, and works brilliantly with my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue as a light and dewy base. It states on the package that it's 'buildable hydrating creme' however hadn't used it myself in this way as of yet. 

balm dotcom |I've got to come clean to begin with. I'm addicted to lip products, especially lip balms, and it surprises me that I only have one flavour/scent to my name. This little tube of wonderfulness works as a bloody brilliant lip balm that has a super long lasting nourishing moisture to it. The packaging means it's small and perfect to take around anywhere with you, as is a perfect prep for your lips before a matte lip! Now... I'm actually placing an order for some more right now!

Generation G lipstick |Becuase honesty is the best policy, the shade Like that I have was a little underwhelming when I tried it for the first time. I didn't expect for it to be that sheer, so when applying I was a little taken back. Having said this, since it's been in my handbag it's vastly become a work staple to give my lips a natural bit of colour (as has been a saviour throughout the time I had the sniffles as I literally looked like a ghost). A very pinky my lips but enhanced shade, its great to slap on when your on the go or without a mirror. 

Boy Brow |Now, we're getting to the good stuff. As far as I'm concerned, all other brow products could be discontinued and I'd be ok about it. So quick and easy to use, makes my brows look fuller in minutes, and looks oh so cute in my collection. I hate to think of how many brow products I've tried over time, and have finally found one I love. It mimics your natural brow hair and brushes on small stroke of brown or clear gel, that has the after effect of you spending ages in front of the mirror getting dem brows on fleek. If you're in the market for a new brow gel that does it all in one, look no further! 

Cloud Paint |In the past I've never been much of a blusher person. Being a typical English rose, my cheeks can be a very questionable shade that I've even been asked what blusher I'm wearing for me to try around and say "its just my cheeks". hmmmmm, moving on. But of course, I had to give these a go. I pop a little bit of these beauties on a stippling brush and stipple and blend away leaving a beautiful either peach or pink glow (peach being my fav). The end result is very natural and glow worthy, which I can't wait to bust out in the warmer months. 

Haloscope | After having a little experiment with this highlights, I found I much preferred it as a cupids bow, nose highlight and brow highlight. I'm not a fan of how it looks on my cheeks and am sticking to a powder highlight for that, but other than that it's so pretty. A slight iridescent sheen to it, it really does catch the light. This is probably the only product out of the above that I won't rush to repurchase, but would always use it if I had one. 

So, to me Glossier is so worth the hype. I bought in to it and loved it. All I can say is that you just don't know until you try the brand out, as everything is suitable for everyone.
