Hey guys! Today I am back with my Glossier update. I know this was supposed to go up next Tuesday and that’s because today’s post was supposed to be my Boxycharm review. But since my box still hasn’t arrived (need to email customer service about that) I have bumped this review up to today. So without further ado, let’s get into my thoughts on the products.
The first product is the Brow Flick in the shade Brown. I like this brow product! It takes a bit to get used to using it but it does a great job at creating almost hairlike strokes. I will say that if you have sparse brows you might like this better. My brows are naturally pretty thick and I’ve gotten them done recently so they have a nice shape to them. So I don’t need a ton of brow product. But if you don’t have a lot of brow hair, then using the Brow Flick to create all those hairs would be useful. Just make sure that your eyebrow area is clean and dry. I tried applying this after just applying moisturizer and it won’t stay. Overall a great brow product that I will continue to use.
The other brow product is the Boy Brow. I’m honestly still unsure how I feel about this brow gel. Like I said I got my brows done recently. So because of that they nice and neat and I don’t necessarily need a brow gel to hold them in place. I like using a brow gel when they are longer and unruly to help them stay in place. Honestly, I’m not a huge brow gel person to begin with so I’m unsure how much I will use it.
The next product is the Balm Dotcom lip balm. I really like this lip balm! It’s a good consistency where it’s not too thick but still thick enough to moisturize my lips. It leaves my lips feeling soft. The tint isn’t too opaque but I don’t mind that. The mango flavour is perfect because it lingers on the lips but it doesn’t feel like I’m eating mango. The only thing I don’t like is the lack of an applicator. The lip balm comes out of a hole and the surface is too rough to apply it directly to the lips. I find I have to put in on my finger and then rub it on my lips. I wish it had an applicator similar to the Laneige Lip Glowly Balm. That’s my only issue otherwise it’s great.
My favourite product is the Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick. It’s so similar to my favourite Colourpop lipstick that has been discontinued. It’s the perfect everyday lipstick. It’s sheer enough where it’s not like ‘BAM I’m wearing lipstick’ but it still gives some colour to the lips while also being a matte. It’s a comfortable matte and doesn’t look dry. It’s not very long-lasting in the sense if I eat something there is disappears. But sometimes that’s nice because then you don’t have to worry about having butt-hole lips while eating. Overall I like this lipstick and I will wear this a lot going into the fall.
I think my least favourite product is the Wowder. I can’t tell if I just can’t get enough powder on my brush or if it’s just not that good at mattifying. The sifter is this mesh that seems ingenious but it’s hard to get the powder out of. So I push my brush into the mesh and left go to my face and it barely mattifies my face. It does an okay job of setting my under eyes. But not even 30 minutes after I apply the powder I look so greasy and I feel like I have to powder again. It could be that I’m not applying enough so then it’s a bad design. Or it could be that I am applying enough and that this is just not a good mattifying powder. Overall I am pretty disappointed in this powder. I’ll still use it because I don’t want to go through the hassle of returning but I would not recommend this product.
And the final product is the Cloud Paint. This cream blush isn’t bad but I have decided that I like stick cream brushes more. Because it’s in a squeezy tube I have to apply it to my back of my hand and then my face. I just find that is wastes more product that way and then my hand is dirty. I find it easier to use a stick or compact because I can just dip my brush it or swipe it directly on my face. Besides that, the formula isn’t bad. It is easy to blend and lasts long. The first time I accidentally squeezed too much out and applied some to my eyelids and it lasted all day. Also, I have the shade Beam and I just wish it was slightly deeper in tone but that’s a personal preference thing. So overall while the product wasn’t bad I prefer a still form of packaging.
And that is my thoughts on Glossier! Overall while I enjoy the sleek and minimal packaging I find a lot of it annoying – like I wish the packaging was different for 3/6 products. I would say that the lip products are the best out of everything I tried.
