Hello.

Welcome to my blog. Thanks for visiting.

Glossier

Glossier, thank you for saving my life. I'm being dramatic, but I'm also being honest.

I've had the hardest time trying to figure out what type of makeup to use. I started using less make up throughout high school + college, and I wanted to find something that was easy to apply and didn't take me forever to put on. The process of applying makeup is hella annoying and tedious. I could never figure out what brushes to buy and use. I tried bb cream, foundation, concealer, you name it. I tried setting powder, contour kits, matte lipstick/lipgloss, I tried everything and I spent a lot of money. It's crazy how expensive makeup is. One time I spent around $200 on products I barely used. I tried my hardest to use them, to enjoy them, but it didn't work out. Before Glossier, I only used mascara, a little bit of bronzer, and eyebrow pencil. I would text my friend Alexis a lot to ask questions about what type of products to use and she always told me I didn't need a lot of makeup because my skin was already good enough without it. Thank you, Lexi! You've always been so real and you makeup skills are fire.

When I first saw Glossier on social media, I was skeptical. I wasn't sure if it was worth buying, but I really wanted to try it. I liked the design, the colors. That's what pulled me in at first. The simplicity of it all and the fact that I could use my fingers to apply the makeup. My friend Astaire bought a couple of things while she was in NY and she highly recommended it. Ok, why not? I bought: boy brow, 2 cloud paints, stretch concealer, and generation g. The total was $70. Yes, that's a bit pricey, but I saved around $10 because I bundled together a couple of the products.

Is Glossier worth it? Yes! A million time yes.

Do I want more products? Yes. Next purchase will be more cloud paint, haloscope, and perfecting skin tint. I'll get into the skincare line some other time! I'm excited about that. I saw that they have a face serum for redness and I'm so ready to use that.

As much as I love the cloud paint, the stretch concealer has my heart. I finally found a concealer that applies well on my skin (using my fingers!), and it's not too thick or too thin. It makes your skin glow. The cloud paint gives my skin such a nice color and it almost looks like a tan, super natural looking. One product that has been such a success is the boy brow, but to be completely honest, it wouldn't be something that I would keep buying. Only because my eyebrows are thick and dark enough that I wouldn't need to use it as much. If anyone is down to try out Glossier, please do. I probably won't try anything else, but Glossier.

Glossier, you got me.
