We all want that “No-makeup makeup look, ” but in reality, it takes work to get it. All women are naturally beautiful and should be able to flaunt their God-given attributes without enhancing them with heavy makeup. We want to celebrate what make us who we are, not conceal our uniqueness whether it be freckles or beauty marks. Glossier, a beauty and skincare brand with personality, helps us do just that.
The first time our MyTopFace experts tested Glossier, our skin was left feeling fabulous with Imperfect Perfection. We were instantly impressed by their minimalistic packaging: white boxes with small pink font that pop with fun and look great on our bathroom shelves. Therefore, we were so excited to review Glossier again and test out other products from their range.
The Eyebrows-On-Fleek trend has dominated the beauty industry for the past few years. Our experts have spotted thick brows all over our newsfeeds. We adore how they complement facial features while adding an instant youthful look. So we first tested the Glossier Boy Brow, a tinted mini mascara for your brows, hoping it would give us that spring look. The Boy Brow is made with natural ingredients like beeswax and carnauba wax that hold hairs into place without harsh stiffness. It also contains oleic acid, an ingredient from olive oil that nourishes and moisturizes hair and skin.
We were impressed by how full our brows appeared after application and that they also kept in place all day! We found the Boy Brow allowed us to get that full brow effect without much effort. It is especially convenient for us because we don’t have the time every day to fill in and groom them though we do want them to look great and polished at all time.
MyTopFace (MTF) beauty hack: A good pair of eyebrows will frame your face nicely, but too much product may leave you looking clownish. Proceed with caution. When it comes to eyebrows, a little bit always goes a long way! Since the Boy Brow formula is quite thick, first scoop up excess product with the edge of the bottle and then use the wand on your brows, in short, upward motions.
Next stop was skincare, and our experts focused all of their attention to achieving the dreamy, dewy look the runway models have been wearing. We first tested the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint which is hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested. This means it’s ideal for all skin types. Even acne-prone individuals can use it without concern of breakout. The formula contains a diamond powder which brightens skin while lovingly blurring out blemishes the same way our favorite photo filter does. The Perfect Skin Tint also contains glycerin which attracts and retains moisture, so skin is left looking with a healthy glow.
Since this tint is rather liquidy, we made sure to shake the bottle gently before use. We gathered some of the product onto our fingertips and rubbed it into our skin. We were impressed by how it melted instantly and magically. Plus, the fact we did not need to use a makeup brush or sponge was handy (one less thing to pack in our bags!)
Last but not least, our experts then tested the Glossier Rose Balm Dotcom. This multi-tasking balm is created with natural ingredients like beeswax and castor seed oil that act as protective shields from environmental hardships while also locking in moisture. It also contains lanolin, a natural ointment that soothes skin issues. Since it is packed with antioxidants and natural ingredients, we could apply it to the sensitive parts of our bodies like our lips, cuticles, and any dry patches.
To use, we squeezed out a pea-sized amount to our fingertip and applied it the areas that required any TLC. We then rubbed any leftover product onto our eyelids and found it made our eyes pop in a subtle way. We loved how the product was silky-like and did not leave that greasy feeling other balms do. Our lips felt juicy and hydrated; our nails shiny with happiness.
Add Glossier into your daily beauty routine, and you’ll be walking the streets like the dewy goddess you are in no time. Besides, Glossier products are so easy to use that this will be a ritual you can actually keep to! Their products work together to give you a healthy glow that first comes from within. It’s a step forward from the unhealthy, heavy makeup companies that clog our pores and leave us with breakouts. Glossier is more than just a beauty brand: It’s a celebration of who we naturally are.
