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?

glossier review

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

 

Hello! I hope you all have been having an excellent winter (or summer for my aussie friends)  I recently purchased some products from glossier. You have probably seen these beautifully packaged products all over social media. Glossier is a small, online makeup brand, made famous by their product “the boy brow.” Today I will be sharing with you my purchases!

Enjoy x x x  Jasper

I purchased three products from glossier, 2 cloud paints and one balm dotcom. To my delight, my package included a makeup bag, many stickers, and a free sample of their perfume, as well as the products I ordered.

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.23.03 PM

First of all, can we talk about how cute the packaging is?!?!?! I love how everything is very minimalistic, colourful, and so aesthetically pleasing. Glossier is known for their beautiful packaging, and I think that the packaging really draws buyers.

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.19.44 PM

These are the stickers they included in my package. I love every single one of them. I haven’t used them yet, but I can see myself sticking them on my laptop or on my phone-case in the future!

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.20.36 PM

I also received this perfume sample, and to be honest, I’m not a fan of the scent. It has a bit of an earthy scent. The quality is great, it is just a personal preference. Now on the the actual products I ordered!

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.19.00 PM

I ordered three products. A lip balm and two cream blushes.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.21.37 PM

This is the lip balm I purchased. It is called the birthday balm dotcom and I ensure you that it lives up to its name! It smells like delicious homemade cake and contains many little sparkles. There are a ton of different flavours, and I am looking forward to trying them all in the future. However, they are quite pricey. They are sold for $15 CAD on the glossier website.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.22.15 PM

Next up are the cloud paints. I bought these two blushes in a package deal. Normally they are $22 CAD each, but I purchased 2 for $36. When using this product, keep in mind that a little goes a very long way. It is sometimes difficult to control the amount of product that comes out, but the blushes are very sheer and build able.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.18.27 PM

The first cloud paint I purchased is in the shade puff. Puff is a pretty, rosy pink. I love how natural it looks on your skin. Keep in mind that you do not have to limit this product to your cheeks! You can dab it on your eyelids or lips!

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.18.00 PM

Next is beam. Beam is a beautiful coral. It may appear orange, but when applied to your skin, it looks super glowy and natural.

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.22.33 PM

Overall, I completely loved all these products. The packaging is absolutely adorable and the quality is great. However, I was expecting the products to be larger. They are quite small, but there is lots of product in them. The main message is, yes, I would definitely buy from them again.
