Glossier Is FINALLY Coming To The UK, Here's What You Should Stock Up On
The Debrief: *Adds all to bag immediately*
I recently took a trip to New York, and when I wasn’t stuffing my face with bagels, cookies and whatever other foods I could, I was most likely in the Glossier showroom. Located on Lafayette Street, this shop is what dreams are made of, and so are the products. Founded by Emily Weiss (you might recognise her name from cult beauty blog Into The Gloss) Glossier isn’t just about making your face look nice – it’s all about products us women really need in life. Easy-to-use basics that you can pick up, swipe on your skin and be good to go at a completely affordable price. So, when Glossier confirmed on Instagram that they were FINALLY going to ship to the UK, after pining after their products since the 2014 launch, I naturally got extremely excited. Here’s the products your face deserves to be slathered, painted and brushed with – get ready to stock up.
I’d like to dedicate my Wednesday to Boy Brow. Before Boy Brow I used two eyebrow products. Two. Who needs two? I would draw them in and then brush them out with a gel – the whole process would take around 6 minutes. 6 minutes I would never get back. That was before Boy Brow made its neat little way into my life. This product fills in sparse spaces, thickens thin brow and holds them in place like a gel would and now I only need one product every morning. Merci Boy Brow, I love u.
The recently launched cloud paint has fast become my go-to blusher. I went for Haze, a subtle pink perfect for pale skin. These babies glide over your face seamlessly and last all-day long. Hooked.
If you can only afford one product – buy this. Balm Dotcom is the mecca of beauty products. The crème de la crème of balms. This hydrating skin slave comes with me everywhere and if I can’t find it I experience severe separation anxiety. Best used on lips or eyelids to give yourself a dewy ‘I hardly wear makeup’ glow.
I got this after a friend asked me to pick her one up, then I got lured in the packaging and couldn’t resist buying myself one too. It’s luxurious and creamy and dreamy – basically everything you want in a night-time moisturiser, am I right? Plus, you only need the smallest amount so while this is one of Glossier’s more expensive products (around £30) it will last forever my friends.
Ohmygodohmygodohmygod I have never loved a lip product more. I have Zip, a poppy red – don’t be fooled into thinking this guy is difficult to wear, though. Generation G’s consistency adapts to you – so each colour appears different on everyone, and they feel more like a balm than a lipstick so you don’t have to worry about awkward stains around your mouth all day. I’ve heard Cake is a cult favourite. *Adds all to bag immediately*
