glossier showroom and haul

Hello!

I had the most amazing time in New York, if you haven’t seen my last post, you can read it here… new york travel diary!

While I was in New York, I dragged my family into the glossier showroom, and oh my, it was stunning.

I’m sure you all have heard of glossier before. It is a makeup / skincare brand that focuses on enhancing your natural features instead of hiding them. They are known for their beautiful minimalistic packaging, which I love!! I also think that their products are of great quality.

I thought that I would share some photos of my experience as well as a haul.

* the haul is going to be at the end of this post

I hope you enjoy!

This is the outside of the glossier penthouse. We stood in the line for around fifteen minutes, then took an elevator upstairs.

We got up and walked around, checking out the gorgeous displays.  To be honest, it was quite crowded and hot inside, but that was the only negative part of my trip!

The workers were super helpful and friendly.

There were tables full of testers that you can look at and tryout. If you plan on buying something, you go to an employee and place an order and they bring it out to you! Honestly, it’s such a great system because you don’t have to wait in line.

Screen Shot 2018-10-13 at 10.23.27 AMThe store is just so aesthetically pleasing and pretty to look at. All the displays are stunning full of flowers and pinkness!!

Screen Shot 2018-10-13 at 10.34.49 AMGlossier isn’t relatively cheap, but its also not overly expensive. The products are of great quality and you can get a lot of use out of them.

Now onto the products that I purchased! I decided to add in a few items that I bought a while back, just to show you guys!

When you buy something from glossier, you receive a sample, stickers, and of course, the glossier pouch! I received a sample of the moisturizer, but i am yet to use it.

First of all, can I say LOOK AT THE PACKAGING!! It’s so minimalistic and gorgeous. As for the actual highlighter, it went on quite smoothly. It gives off more of a natural shine, so if you were looking for something blinding, this isn’t the product for you. It’s definitely a product that I will be repurchasing!

I’m a little obsessed with the lip balms from glossier. They just smell too good! I picked this one up in rose, and oh my, it’s amazing. It actually smells like roses! It has a bit of a pinky tint, but it’s not noticeable when it’s on your lips.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.14.45 PMI picked up the famous lipgloss for my friend while I was in nyc and she loves it! It goes on smoothly and isn’t super sticky like most lip glosses.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.09 PM

Another favourite. The coconut just smells so freaking good!! And of course the packing is beautiful as always. It’s not sticky at all and can easily be applied!

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.16.01 PM

I’ve had this product for a while now and have been using it everyday. I love how easily the blush can be applied. Warning : careful how much you squeeze out, a little goes a long way!

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.22 PM

I purchased this in the smallest size, and am probably going to get the larger one because I love it so much! You can apply to damp or dry skin and rinse off. It’s super gentle and has a faint scent of flowers.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.14.30 PM

This is another product that I’ve had for a while, and I love it! It smells just like cake. My only complaint though is that the the shiny part is starting to wear off. Otherwise, it’s an amazing product!

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.43 PM

My sister picked this up from the glossier showroom and she adores it! It smells amazing and has a beautiful red tint.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-21 at 4.15.53 PM

This is another on of my original three products. I LOVE it, definitely going to repurchase. The colour is lovely, a pretty light pink.

That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed!

Have you tried ( or wanted to try ) any of glossiers products?

hola! todays post features some beauty products that i have been lovin!

i like natural looking makeup, i don’t often wear makeup, only for special occasions, but when i do, i want it to enhance my natural features, not hide them. my favourite makeup / skincare brand is glossier, i love the message they are sending out ;   skin first, makeup second. i am trying really hard to put skincare in front of makeup, so i am establishing a skincare routine and trying to stick to it. enough of me rambling, lets talk about the products!

01. imperialis moisturizer from lush  –   this is the best! i love the feeling of being moisturized throughout the day, and this moisturizer gets the job done, really well. it has a bit of a floral scent, but is not super noticeable, which is nice.

02. mario badescu rosewater spray  –   after applying moisturizer, i spray this rosewater spray on my face, i also apply it after i do my makeup as a setting spray. it has a soft scent of roses, which is amazing! definitely going to be repurchasing!

03. maybelline fit me concealer   –   when i wear concealer, this is my go to. it covers up redness and blemishes slightly, while still giving your face a natural look. it lets uneven skin tones, freckles, and pimples show, which is nice.

04. glossier cloud paint   –   i received these two cream blushes for my birthday and have been obsessed with them ever since! they give your face a beautiful natural glow. i have them in the shade puff and beam.

05. eyelash curler  –  i’m not sure where this one is from, but it does the job well. there isn’t much to say about it aha.

06. glossier birthday flavoured balm dotcom   –  this is another favourite, my glossier lip balm. it has little sparkles, but you can’t really notice them, so it is great to wear outside of the house. oh, did i mention, it smells like cake!

that is all for my makeup / skincare routine, i hope you enjoyed. what is your favourite beauty product? tell me by leaving a comment below   x x x  jasper

levi jeans – I scored these brand new levi’s for $30! Yes I repeat, $30, they retail for $120. In Vancouver I went to winners, and saw these! I didn’t think they would fit, but they fit perfectly.

smoothie bowls – I think I’m a little too obsessed with smoothie bowls… They are just so good! I have posted several recipes here and here, but the one pictured above is from a lovely brunch place called Cora’s. It was a spinach and mango smoothie bowl topped with coconut, chia, bananas, strawberries, and granola! Yum!

mario badescu drying lotion – I picked this up when I went to Vancouver, so I have only had the chance to use it a few times. It works like a charm though! To use it, you take a q-tip and dip it in the settled pink product, then dab it on any pimples and overnight they go away!

 

Thats all for today, I hope you enjoyed  x x x  Jasper

a few beauty products

I love beauty products. I have an ever growing collection of lovely skincare, body and makeup products. Over the holidays, I received several beauty products that I adore, and I decided to share them with you. I don’t wear that much makeup now, I mainly focus on skincare, but every once in a while it is fun to wear a bit. I usually wear eyebrow gel and lip tint or gloss, sometimes mascara. I really like the “no makeup” makeup look and having natural brows and rosy cheeks. I have really been into skincare. I love feeling of being moisturized before I go to bed and in the morning. Enough of me rambling, lets get onto the products.

First is the lush breath of fresh air toner. I love toners and this one does the job well. It is salty because it contains sea salt and it also has a fresh herbal scent to it. I apply it almost everyday, I especially love using it after I workout or get back from a run because it makes my skin feels so refreshed.

I purchased two cloud paints in the colours beam and puff from glossier, and I’m in love. The product is sheer so it looks natural and dewy on your skin. When you squeeze it out of the package, a lot comes out. However they are quite buildable. And the packaging is gorgeous. So minimalistic and pretty.

Next is this strawberry lip balm by Smith’s. First of all, it smells delicious. Like sweet strawberries, but has a hint of an earthy scent too. It is slightly tinted, but not very noticeable and when applied to your lips it feels so great.

 

I love these products and I am sure you would too! Thank you for reading   x x x  Jasper

february favourites ☆

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 6.59.43 PM

Hello! February was a good month, a little on the stressful side though because of school (surprise surprise.) It consisted of eating lots of yummy food, exploring the city, and hanging out with friends and family. Second term just ended, and my break start in a week and a half! I’m not going anywhere exotic over the break, just skiing and to Vancouver (I’m so excited to go shopping, expect some hauls), and hopefully we will go surfing! My grandparents are visited, so that will be fun. I will also try to post more frequently, may two or three times a week.

Now onto my favourite items from this past month.

 

+ glossier cloud paint

I have raved about this amazing product so much. It is a cream blush in such a gorgeous colour. It has an amazing formula, blending easily, and it makes you look naturally flushed! I have it in both the shade puff, a baby pink, and beam a pretty coral.

 

+ hoop earrings

Hoop earring are just an essential. I purchased this little pair of hoops from a boutique downtown, and have been wearing them ever since!

 

+ the sun and her flowers

I love love love this book! It is full of poems fit for any (and every!) mood and includes illustrations  hand drawn by Rupi Kaur. I recommend this book so much!

 

+ gorgeous washi tape

I am quite a big fan of stationary, especially washi tape and when I saw these ones, I fell in love! I believe they are from a store in New York, but I’m not totally sure

 

+ lush body conditioner

This body conditioner is called Bucks Fizz, and it is the greatest! I slather it all over my self before I hop in the shower and when I get out, it leaves my skin feeling moisturized, oh and you will smell like a lovely orange!!

winter skincare

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Hello! In the winter, my skin is not at its best, so I have to step up my skincare game. The cold weather leaves my skin pretty dry. Stress is another factor leading to blemished skin, and school = stress!! I like sticking to a simple routine, and these are a bunch of my favourite products! lets get onto the post!

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 1.23.44 PM

  1. IMPERIALIS  MOISTURIZER – this is hands down my favourite moisturizer. it is so creamy and blends perfectly. i use this product twice a day, once before i put on my makeup and in the evening before i go to bed. it is from lush and is on the pricey side, but there is so much product in it so it will last a long time.
  2. MARIO BADESCU ROSE WATER FACIAL SPRAY – i purchased this product from urban outfitters and it quickly became a favourite. i use it as a setting spray, and oh does it ever smell good! it leaves you feeing energized and awake.
  3. GARNIER SKIN ACTIVE MICELLAR WATER – this is one of my favourite products. i use it to take of my makeup and to freshen up in the morning. i have been through two travel sized bottles and am halfway through this one. it is perfect if you are lazy like me, because you don’t even have to rinse it off!
  4. TEA TREE SKIN CLEARING FACIAL WASH – i bought this product not to long ago and i love it. it is a gel like formula and i just dab it on my cheeks, chin, nose and forehead, then scrub in with a cleansing pad (number 9 on the list!) then i rinse.
  5. BREATH OF FRESH AIR TONER – this is my favourite toner. it contains sea water, aloe, rosemary oil and several other herbs. it leaves your skin super refreshed. you can buy this product at lush.
  6. FRESH SUGAR LIP POLISH – i love this product so much. it is like a lip-scrub and it leaves your lips super smooth. you can buy it at sephora.
  7.  1,000 MILLHELENS FACE MASK – this is a gel face mask from lush. it evens your skin tone and smells like witch hazel and green tea! i use this product once a week.
  8. FRESH SUGAR LIP SERUM –  this serum smoothes your lips. i apply this once or twice a week, and it works so well. it also smells really good! you can buy it at sephora.
  9. QUO FACE SCRUB PAD THING – i have no clue what this is called, but it is from the brand quo. i use it with the tea tree face wash.
