NEW Glossier Cosmetics in the UK - Is Glossier Makeup Worth The Hype?

Glossier Cosmetics Arrive in the UK - Glossier Makeup & Skin Care Haul - Best Products to Buy!

I'd say I'm pretty guilty of jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to new cosmetic products. Whether it was queuing online to get my hands on Kylie Jenner's very first few lip kits, or rushing to buy Too Faced's Sweet Peach palette, I'm basically a marketer's dream. Which is pretty ironic really, considering that's my job. 

So it was no surprise, that this month when Glossier finally arrived in the UK, I was straight on their website adding their products to my shopping basket - as if the gorgeous packaging and social media photos weren't enticing enough, the endless discount codes on Twitter definitely caught my eye. 

Glossier are all about low maintenance, natural beauty and glowing, dewy skin, both of which I'm totally on board with, particularly in the winter months when you're lacking vitamin D and desperately hankering after your sun kissed summer skin. As someone who's makeup of the day is definitely dictated to by time, I'm always on the look out for products that'll easily integrate into my existing routine, but also shake up my look a little.

The products I decided to purchase were:


I have to admit I was pretty sad not to be able to pick up Glossier's Cloud Paint blush (it was out of stock at the time of purchase), after looking at tutorials and swatches online I was pretty taken with the pigmented glow it achieves, but there's always next time!

I've actually waited a week to write this post so that I can give an honest opinion of the products, having given them a fighting chance to wow me. So here's my opinion on each of them!

Glossier Cosmetics Arrive in the UK - Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in Shade Medium


As a lover of Estée Lauder's Double Wear foundation, I'm addicted to full coverage, but I'm always open to trying out lighter formulas that will suit low key, lazy days. I'd say this particular product is somewhere between the coverage of tinted moisturiser, and a BB cream. In shade Medium, I can achieve a glowy, sheer veil that gives my skin a healthy, no makeup look - definitely not a product for days when I'm breaking out though, as there's no way the silky, translucent texture of this product can be built up to cover blemishes. That said, teamed with my favourite Clarins concealer for my dark under eye circles and rogue spots, I'm quite a fan of the natural look I can create. The staying power isn't amazing, but with a little loose powder, this skin tint gives me enough confidence to pop to the shops without feeling self conscious. If I was actually motivated enough to get in the gym again, I'd say that this would be my go to product.

I was a little weary of this highlighter, having only used powder products before, but was pleasantly surprised with how effective this little bad boy was. A sweep of this across the skin achieves a beautiful, dewy look that screams healthy and well-rested. Initially it feels a little tacky, but soon settles into the skin, and doesn't make my foundation separate and disappear, as other creamy products can do. Overall I really can't fault this highlighter, and would go as far to say as it could become an everyday addition to my makeup routine.

Glossier Cosmetics Arrive in the UK - Glossier Generation G 'Crush' Lipstick

Glossier Cosmetics Arrive in the UK - Glossier Generation G 'Crush' Lipstick


I love, love, love, matte lipsticks. Flattering and fabulous, they just complete my makeup looks time and time again, but sometimes their formulas can be a little drying and heavy for everyday wear. This is wear Generation G comes in. A sheer matte finish, that glides on with ease and precision, it has a sort of 'just blotted' look to it that I'd say is very french-chic. Am I crazy about the shade 'Crush' I chose? Not really. I find it to be just a little too pink for my liking, but I really do love the wearability of this little gem.

A magnet to matte lipsticks, it's not often you'll find me sporting a shimmy shimmy lip gloss. But I do love experimenting with new looks, and saw the positive reviews on this particular gloss and thought I'd take my chances. Crystal clear and non-sticky, with the most gorgeous diamond shine to it, I think I'm a lip gloss convert. I usually dislike the sparkly glitter, stickiness of standard glosses, but there's none of that with this. With a little lip tint underneath, this gloss creates a stunning shine that perfectly sets off your dewy skin.

I picked this cleanser up because it was so hyped online, and I have to say it has lived up to my very high expectations. One pump of this product has the power to dissolve my mascara-layered eyelashes, lipstick and heavy-duty foundation. I'm so over battling with makeup wipes that only leave my skin dry and sore, this will definitely be my holy grail cleanser going forwards.

So overall I'd definitely say that Glossier's arrival in the UK has been a smashing success for my ongoing makeup addiction. And has once again taught me that all the beauty bloggers and vloggers I follow online, know their stuff! I'd definitely recommend Glossier to my friends and family, and anyone who's looking to go natural with their daily make up looks.
