First Impressions: Glossier

fullsizeoutput_f99

OKAY. I’ve been waiting a LONG time to get my hands on anything by Glossier and the day has finally come! After months and months of contemplating whether or not to order online, I did it.

I first heard about Glossier from a little blurb on Allure about their Milk Jelly Cleanser. It won an award and I was intrigued about this brand. More research led me to find out that Glossier is the makeup brand by the infamous beauty/lifestyle blog ‘Into The Gloss’ and….drum roll….the founder of the both the blog and Glossier is none other than Emily Weiss. I’m sure you’re like who is that? UHM. Remember The Hills on MTV? Remember when Lauren and Whitney were interns at Teen Vogue? Remember Intern Emily? The one that got to go to THE dinner? THIS IS THE SAME EMILY (mindblown). I’m not lying, I pretty much sat and stared at my laptop for what seemed like a whole day. Now that that’s out of the way, What is Glossier, you ask?

Glossier is a skincare/makeup brand that has only one focus in mind: Skin first, Makeup second. I’ve realized that the older I’m getting, the more I’m realizing that the focus shouldn’t be on having airbrushed makeup but rather healthy skin! That was one of the main reasons why I gravitated towards trying products out from this brand. Of course, I live in Canada and despite what everyone believes…not all brands are easily accessible. Glossier at one point did have a pop-up shop in Toronto, but alas I was not able to make it. So, when I saw that they shipped to Canada (minus Quebec, sorry), I was ecstatic!

fullsizeoutput_f90

The Online Order Process: Glossier’s website is one of the easiest websites I’ve ever used. I love the fact that there aren’t an overwhelming amount of products or choices, which is why Glossier as a brand works well. Placing the online order was simple and sweet. Another thing I love is that the prices are stated in CAD, which is amazing because who wants to sit and convert the dollar? After inputing your credit card info, you were asked to pick a sample to put in your package (woohoo). And then, voila! You’re done. See? So simple. Once your package has been shipped, you’ll receive an email.

 

fullsizeoutput_f92

The Shipping Process: This process was probably the most surprising for me. When I saw that if you spend $40 CAD, then you qualify for free shipping…I was ecstatic! There was a down side though. Free shipping means it will take 7-10 business days to ship to your destination, which initially was kind of a bummer. After I got an email updating me that the products had been shipped, I decided to go about my life because the expected arrival date for my items was exactly in 10 business days. SO WHEN THE PACKAGE ARRIVED A WHOPPING 5 DAYS LATER I WAS JUMPING WITH JOY! Honestly, it was a surprise because this was pretty quick! Again, super simple.

fullsizeoutput_f93

The Package: This is probably the most instagrammable package I have ever received from any makeup/skincare brand! As you can see, it came in a cardboard box which was sealed with a Glossier embosses tape.  All the products were neatly tucked inside the infamous Glossier pink pouch. And it came with a sheet of stickers, which was super cool! Each of the products came in their own packaging. It was sleek, to the point and wasn’t busy looking. It was simple and sweet, which is exactly what this brand preaches.

The Products:

  1. Super Glow Serum ($35): I was on the hunt for a vitamin C+magnesium serum!
  2. Balm Dotcom in Mint ($15): I love me some lip balm! They had a selection of a few tinted and clear, I went with the clear in the Mint flavour. 
  3. Boy Brow in Brown ($20): Again, this is a cult favourite so I had to give it a try! 
  4. Cloud Paint Duo in Puff and Storm ($36): The whole concept of applying blush with your fingers seems super cool. Storm is one of their newest shades, so that was a plus point!
  5. Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Crush ($20): I added this on a whim and I am definitely in love! 

fullsizeoutput_f9a

First Impressions: As soon as I finished taking pictures of all the products and packaging, I began to swipe the Generation G sheer matte lipstick in crush on my lips. I didn’t know how I’d feel about a “sheer-matte” lipstick…because I didn’t understand what a sheer matte was. Upon first swipe, I fell in love and I can’t wait to order some of the other shades. All the products from the Cloud Paints to the serum were phenomenal upon first use. I was not disappointed at all. If you want more in-depth reviews, let me know!

 

fullsizeoutput_f98

Overall Impressions of Glossier: Can I be a Glossier girl? Like seriously? Honestly, I have never been so impressed by a brand in my life. I’m usually not into the whole au natural look, but this brand is changing it for me. I won’t lie, the prices are a little steep, BUT I do believe it’s worth it. I think the more I’ll use the products, the more I’ll see. But as of now, I do like everything I’ve ordered. I am super impressed by this brand! I love how fuss free these products are!

fullsizeoutput_f9b

Will I Order Again? YES. YES. YES. I can’t wait to try more of their makeup and skincare products!

Review: Charlotte Tilbury’s Unisex Healthy Glow Hydrating Tint

fullsizeoutput_ce8

I think I’ve found the perfect way to get the ultimate sun-kissed look without the hassle of a self tanner courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury. When the lady at the Charlotte Tilbury counter at Holt Renfrew tried this on me, I had to do a double take. My skin looked like it was transformed into something I had never experienced before…and with that kind of result, I knew I had to have this particular product in my life!

fullsizeoutput_ce4

What is it: The Unisex Healthy Glow is described as an “all-year hydrating summer tint moisturizer”. Now, I wouldn’t really call this a tinted moisturized because it’s a one shade fits all product. When you squeeze the product out, it comes out like a moisturizer. There’s no visible “tint” but when you start working it in your face, it starts adding a tan type glow to it. It truly is magic. This product is unisex and morphs into any skin tone for the perfect natural looking glow! It’s hydrating and has natural moisturizing activates which contain a combination of moisture regulating ingredients that mimic bouncy lipids in your skin. The packaging is small enough to fit into your makeup bag! You can wear it alone or under foundation.

fullsizeoutput_ce5

The Good: Okay, remember earlier when I told you I had to do a double take when I first tried this product on? Well, I still do it every single time I use this product. The moment I blend this onto my skin, I find that my pores disappear. My skin looks like it’s got a natural glow! In fact, every time I have this on, I get complimented on how glowy my skin looks! In fact, none of the people believe me when I say it’s makeup and not my skin! I’ve used this under makeup and by itself…and personally, I prefer to use this product by itself. I find it doesn’t really do anything spectacular for my makeup if I use it as a primer but when I use it on its own, it’s like magic! My skin is smooth and even toned! The colour blends perfectly and I love this for days I don’t want to spend time on makeup. The formula itself is hydrating and really easy to use. I recommend using your fingers vs. using tools to apply it, just to get it to blend better. If you have oily skin, I suggest you set it because I did find about after 8 hours, it did crease a tiny bit! Other than that, this is a phenomenal product! You get the perfect natural glow without all the extra makeup products and that’s mainly why I love using this. A little bit goes a long way with this product. I use about 3 drops on my face to achieve the perfect glow! It does give my face a little bit of colour but nothing that’s super overwhelming or wacky! It’s really natural and very easy to blend.

fullsizeoutput_ce6

The Bad: The only thing I don’t like about this product is the fragrance. It smells like the coppertone sunscreen I used to lather on when I was younger. I hope in the future, they make it fragrance free!

Overall Rating: 9/10 (You can get yours at Charlotte Tilbury’s website or at your local Holt Renfrew cosmetics department!)

Hailee Steinfeld GettyImages-911499234_master.nocrop.w447.h670.2x This outfit would’ve been SO boring if it wasn’t for the holographic purple boots. Way to go Hailee. This is how one makes a style statement.

Lana Del Reylana-del-ray-grammy-awards-2018 She literally looks like she stepped out of heaven. What makes this whole ethereal outfit even more angelic is the star halo on her head. It just goes and isn’t extra at all!

Zayn Malik60th Annual GRAMMY Awards - ArrivalsI mean when you’re this good-looking, you can wear a garbage bag and still make it work on a red carpet. I love that Zayn didn’t wear a conventionally boring black suit. Also, those socks doeeee!

Alessia Caraalessia-cara-grammy-awards-2018 I love Alessia’s “I-don’t-care-about-heels” attitude. Alessia stays true to her personal unique style by making fashion comfy…and I’m all about it.

Thomas Rhett & Lauren AkinsGettyImages-911498198_master.nocrop.w461.h670.2x I love when couples coordinate outfits at these events. Something just screams “be jealous we’re adorbs”. These two look adorable!
