There is nothing like a highly anticipated beauty launch in the UK to inspire me to pick up the blogging strings again. There hasn’t been a range I’ve been really excited about in a long time, which along with other life commitments has also been the reason I haven’t blogged in a very long while!
Glossier launched in the UK on 9th October 2017 and everyone is talking about it. I’ve been a fan of Into The Gloss since forever and when Emily Weiss launch her beauty range back in 2014, us Brits were tortured with all the US bloggers raving about it. Like many of you, I watched Anna’s (from the Anna Edit) New York haul running through all the beauty products she loved, and I was there making a mental shopping list in my head. As soon as 9th October rolled around, I made my order!
I wanted to try a range of the Glossier products so I opted for some skincare and make-up. First of all, I picked up the Glossier Phase 1 Set (£35) inc. Milky Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moistuzer and Balm Dotcom, which worked out saving £8. In the make-up department I opted for trying the famous Cloud Paint in Dusk (£15) and Haloscope in Quartz (£18).
Starting with the skincare, the standout product for me in the Glossier Phase 1 Set is definiety the Milky Jelly Cleanser. It’s fuss-free, gentle on my skin and leave my face feeling really soft. It’s not heavy enough for me for an evening cleanse – I tend to use Oskia Cleansing Gel , but this is perfect to add to your morning skincare routine. The Priming Moistuzer is good, but personally I could do with something a little moisturizing in this colder weather. This would be perfect for me in the summer though when I tend to get a little more oiler. I do also really like the packaging of this, the squeezey tube will mean you can get every last drop out. And the Balm Dot.com is my another of my favourite purchase of my order. Not only is it a great lip balm, but it smells amazing – just like birthday cake (I’m a big fan of the sweet scents!). It worth saying the birthday flavour does look a little glittery on first sight but it doesn’t really translate on the lips.
The Cloud Paint and Haloscope are both products I knew I would love before I even purchased them. The Cloud Paint is a creamy blush which can be worn lightly or built up, and Haloscope is Glossier’s highlight product. I’m a big fan of a cream face product to ensure a more glowy look. I would add though that both of there products are better applied with fingers rather than with any makeup brushes, as it gives more of a natural look. Out of the two I do like the Cloud Paint best and I’m interested in getting my hands on my shades. It’s looks natural on your cheeks which is long lasting throughout the day.
Have you tried anything from the Glossier range yet? If so, is there anything you would recommend trying next?
