Glossier, Worth the Hype?  A year of Testing.

Glossier, Worth the Hype?  A year of Testing.

When Glossier land in the UK back in 2017, it seemed like the whole beauty scene stood still to jump on the band wagon, and I was absolutely no exception! Like Everyone else, I headed straight to the website, ordered my products and waiting for my little bundle of joy to be posted through my front door, in the infamous pink bubble wrap bag. Then I did it again. And again. I soon ended up with a nice little collection. So, a year on, what stood the test of time?

My absolute hands down faaave is the Lip Balm. This Cheeky little number is so nourishing on your old smackers and feels quite the luxury! It sinks into your lips but still leaves a lovely sheen. I use this religiously throughout the day, but also before bed, meaning I wake up with soft, moisturised lips. I tend to go for the Cherry Flavour, the smell alone would be enough to have me sold, but it also has a pretty pink tint meaning you can get away without another lip product on top. Win!

Next is the Priming Moisturiser. I fond this one to be particularly good in the summer. It has a light formula and sinks in quickly, leaving your skin ready and primed for you base. My skin needs a little bit more love in the winter, so I don’t find this product hydrating enough when its colder, but in the warmer months, it’s an absolute dream!

Finally, the Stretch Concealer. I tend to only really use this on good skin days, as, though after some work it can be buildable, it is still relatively sheer. I find the best way to apply this, is by warming it up with my fingers, and dabbing it into place. Its not at all cakey and moves freely with your skin. And though I don’t reach for it every day, when I do, I’m left with a soft, dewy glow… and now sadly an empty pot.

 "makeup becomes the fun part, 
not the fix—as it should be. "

Unfortunately, during the year lost some soldiers along the way. I had such high hopes for the Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick, but it dried my lips out like scales (gross.) The Perfecting Skin Tint was okaaaay, but though it gave a sheer, fresh, glowy finish, I just found it couldn’t even begin to compare to my trusty La Roche-
 Effaclar Duo+ Unifiant. Similarly to the Skin Tint, the Milky Jelly Cleanser was alright. I personally found it didn’t give me a thorough enough clean, however I did repurchase and do sometimes use it for my second cleanse. And finally, we come to The Solution. I’d heard some really positive reviews of this… and then I’d heard some complete tales of terror. I had such high hopes for this product, but sadly, things with The Solution and me just didn’t work out. I tried it over and over but every time I did, I always ended up with prolonged breakouts and red blotchy sensitivity (Waaaa) so me and The Solution parted ways… into my recycling bin.
