For those of you who haven’t heard of them, Glossier are a perfectly pink brand that puts your skin first and emphasises makeup as your choice. Their millennium pink packaging and focus on natural beauty is actually very refreshing to see, especially as a contrast to the heavily foundation-ed we’ve got used to.
Glossier are originally based in New York but have recently branched into the UK (lucky for us) via their website. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, they’ve just opened a pop-up store in Marylebone, London. It’s exclusively open until the 22nd November and is an amazing opportunity to swatch their entire collection and sniff their gorgeous perfume.
I paid a visit myself and as you can see from the pictures, the interior is beautifully thought-out to match the brand and to provide you with quality instagram content. The trailing vines of pink roses, large antique mirrors and crisp white display shelves perfectly reflects what Glossier is all about.
I purchased the milky jelly cleanser, priming moisturiser, birthday balm and the cloud paint in dusk. The first 3 come in a ‘Phase 1’ set which actually saves you some money and sets you up for endlessly dewy skin.
The milky jelly cleanser is so incredibly gentle that I have no problem using it remove my eye makeup and it leaves my t-zone feeling smooth and oil free. Following with the priming moisturiser, which has made a huge difference to how long my makeup lasts during the day, I’ve found that it stops the foundation on my nose breaking up almost completely. The birthday balm smells like cake and has tiny little flecks on glitter within, that’s already a win for me, plus the infamous cloud paint which gives a flush whether you have makeup on or not.
I would definitely go and check it out whilst it’s still open! To get more details about the pop-up click here.
