When Glossier recently launched Glossier Play, it reminded me how long I’ve actually been in this committed relationship with some of the Glossier products. I have zero resistance every time when Glossier launches a product, which hasn’t been the case with Glossier Play, so naturally I’ve accumulated and tried most products in their line, from skincare to makeup. And years later, here are the ones I’m still using, loving, and may even repurchasing.
The Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich: this has been one of the standouts from Glossier’s skincare line for me (I discussed about my favorite skincare finds from them here). It’s so affordable and moisturizing, an all-round moisturizer that gets the job done. Nowadays, if I need to pick where to put my money between moisturizer and serum, I go with the latter. Because you can find really good moisturizers at good price point, and the Glossier one is my favorite in this category. Not only me, I even got my Mom hooked on this moisturizer, who normally doesn’t use moisturizer at all, as crazy as it sounds. So this is definitely something I have been keep repurchasing.
The Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser: I forgot to include this to the original skincare picks from the brand, I guess that’s due to the fact that if you ask me what are my cleanser recommendations, this wouldn’t make it to the top of the list. But for some reason, I have been repurchasing it. Perhaps it’s because this is such a no fuss, foolproof, gentle and easy cleanser to get on with for all skin types, works as morning cleanser as well as night cleanser. A great one to travel with.
The Glossier Boy Brow: ah boy brow, you cannot seem to skip boy brow when it comes to Glossier makeup, can you? It’s been a long standing item in my draw, which I use on almost daily basis, well, on the days I do wear makeup. All the good things you have heard about it is true, it gives you the fullest brow with minimum effort. However, I have to say, I recently discovered Hourglass Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel, and I think I like that one even more! The Hourglass one’s brush design is just ingenious, which enables the right amount of product distribution with each stroke, where with Boy Brow, I always find the need to scrape off a bit of product so it doesn’t build up on my brow. So here is what it comes down to: I’m still using the boy brow and still like it, but probably won’t be repurchasing.
The Glossier Cloud Paint: of course I’m still using and loving the cloud paint since the last time I reviewed it! The blush that doesn’t look like blush, and you can customize the colors however you want it, a total no brainer love. Is it the only cream/liquid blush I use and love? No, but that’s because I’m not loyal and probably will never be to one blush.
The Glossier Haloscope: I have used this highlighter so much, especially now I’m back to the cream product train. It’s natural, it’s balmy, it’s the first highlighter to let me know that a super natural and glowy highlighter does exist, and I’m all for that wet looking cheekbone that shows no shimmer or glitter, but looks like you have just done 1 hour of yoga. Would I repurchase though? I’m not sure, the makeup world is never short of new products, and there are many more yoga skin inducing highlighters out there now, I would probably move on to the try the next one.
The Glossier Generation G lipstick: I did a full post here to discuss my Generation G Lipstick Complex (seriously, it’s a real thing!) last year. Fast forward now, I’m still using it, and the color Zip is still my most worn, most reached, and most loved red lipstick. I was so thrilled when Glossier listened to everyone’s complaint and repackaged the generation G lipstick, but when I tried the new formula, I got to say, I’m not a fan. It still is exceptionally light on the lips, and the stained lips look is lovely, but the new formula is drier than the original one, which wasn’t moisturizing to begin with. However, the good news is that it doesn’t break easily as before. Would I repurchase? I’m a bit undecided, but knowing me, I might give it another try when I visit the store in person. So yes, the Generation G Lipstick Complex continues.
What are some of the Glossier products you still swear by today? And what are the ones you have found better alternatives and hence moved on ?
