i’ve been following emily weiss closely ever since this happened, and whether you watched her on the hills or you’re a fan of her internet empire into the gloss, the truth remains that she really knows her stuff when it comes to beauty. so when emily and her team launched their own modern beauty brand called glossier, of course i had to get my hands on the goods.
all of the products in the glossier repertoire work seamlessly together for ultra gorgeous skin. we all know that my skin has a tendency to freak, but i fully trusted emily, her experience, and her obsession with skincare to take good care of me – and i wasn’t wrong.
the first step in her process, the rosewater face mist is hydrating and refreshing, the perfect gentle toner. i spray it onto a cotton pad instead of directly on my skin and sweep it over my face after cleansing. it doesn’t leave my face dry or tight and there’s nothing greasy left behind, everything just feels balanced and healthy.
step two is glossier priming moisturizer. (it was kara’s review that first sparked my curiosity in glossier!) it’s lightweight, soothing and calming, with the perceived effects of de-stressing my entire face, and it makes a beautiful canvas for glossier perfecting skin tint. skin tint reminds me a lot of the serum foundations (like this one and this one) that we have seen crop up lately. it brightens and blurs imperfections, giving a simple glow and polished look to my face. it’s not as much coverage as foundation, but it takes the edge off naked skin and feels so breathable that anyone with generally good skin won’t need much else and anyone who needs more coverage will find that it’s a nice booster for underneath your favorite foundation.
as a final note, glossier balm dotcom has quickly become my favorite lip balm. i slather it on morning and night for its moisturizing and conditioning effects. it helps all of my lip color to lay (and stay!) more evenly and has completely eradicated any unsightly flakes.
in case it isn’t clear, i’ve been highly impressed by every single one of these products. i shouldn’t have expected anything less than greatness from emily and i can’t wait to see what this girl does next.
