Surprisingly, I just heard about the company Glossier until a few days ago. I’m not exactly sure how I came across the brand, but I knew it was for me as soon as I saw the packaging. Then, I found out there was a store, or showroom, in New York. Fortunately I was planning to take a trip to the city so I knew I had to stop by.
The actual showroom is above the Glossier offices on 123 Lafayette street (right down the street from my favorite restaurant, Jack’s Wife Freida! When you first walk into the showroom, it smells like roses and sweetness. It was amazing.
It took me a while to figure out what I wanted and how to actually buy the products, but I’ll get into that later.
Immediately after I heard of Glossier, I started watching video reviews. Every review I watched on YouTube said that EVERYTHING from the brand was amazing. This made it 10x harder to figure out what to buy.
I knew that I definitely wanted to get the Milk Bar x Glossier collaboration on the birthday cake balm dot com. The Milk Bar is definitely one of my favorite desert places in New York (check out “The Best Ice Cream in NYC“!)
If you go to the store, if you want to buy something, all you have to do is go up to the cashier and tell them what you want. I was a little confused in the beginning but this makes it very easy. Also, they include a lot of free stickers and handouts that make purchasing that much better.
The Balm Dotcom smells amazing, like vanilla cupcakes, and is glittery. Initially, the texture is very thick, almost like a thicker vaseline, but after spreading it thins out.
Since I only have one concealer that is actually the right shade, I decided to pick up the Stretch Concealer in the shade Dark. The concealer is medium coverage mostly due to the texture. It is a little thin and watery which gives it a thin layer of coverage. Despite the thin coverage, it is still build-able to create a desired coverage. According to Glossier’s website, the concealer is meant to be thin to make it look very natural.
Overall, if you have a chance to order for Glossier or to go to the showroom, I would highly recommend it! Glossier only has a small range of products but based off of their success recently, more will be coming out very soon.
