Worth It: Glossier Products

By Agadd @ashleegadd

First things first, thank you so much for your sweet and generous comments on my last post. I read every single one and cried big fat crocodile tears at the kindness and grace you offered me. From the bottom of my heart: thank you.

Also, in case you missed it: we are having a girl (!). I still can't believe it. I'm sure I will write about her a dozen more times before February, but in the meantime—I'm still recovering from my vulnerability hangover and thought I'd switch things up and re-enter blog land with a totally meaningless post about makeup. Get excited!


Do you ever see people talking about products 24/7 and wonder if they genuinely work? This was me and Glossier. After watching a bunch of ladies rave about their products on Instagram, curiosity got the better of me and I decided to order a few things. 

I'm happy to report: they are worth the hype! I'll admit I am a sucker for good branding, so I was somewhat biased to love Glossier right off the bat. All the products arrive carefully packaged in a pink bubble pouch, which I have already re-used approximately 28 times while traveling. 

Now, on to my favorite products!

< I've linked these all individually but if you click here, you can get 10% off your first purchase! >

Boy Brow — this is the first product I tried and loved. I don't use this every day, but when I do a full face of makeup, this is definitely part of the routine. I love how natural it looks and how easy it is to apply. 

Cloud Paint — this is my number one favorite Glossier product; I use it every day. It's the most natural looking blush I've ever used, and one tube lasts FOREVER. I just put a tiny bit on my fingers and dab on my cheeks, boom, done. I use the beam shade. 

Haloscope — I also use this every day, just a quick swipe on my cheekbones and blend with fingers, done. Some highlighters I've tried in the past have been too bright, but this one is super natural without being obnoxious or glittery. I use the quartz shade. 

Clear lip gloss + Rose Balm Dotcom — I've tried all the lip products that Glossier makes and these two are my favorites. The Balm Dotcom is a like a step up from chapstick (never leaves my purse), and the gloss is perfect for when you want something a little extra. I have two Generation G lipsticks as well, but find they pair better with the balm or gloss because they're pretty drying on their own. 

and last but certainly not least ...


Glossier You Perfume — the main thing I want to say about this perfume is I get complimented on it all the time. Women in public bathrooms, the flight attendant handing me a bag of pretzels, the sandwich guy at Whole Foods (not kidding, that really happened) — I have never in my life been complimented so much on a perfume. I use it every day, just one spray on my neck, and I never get tired of the scent. If you're the type who likes to try perfume before committing (I am!), if you order anything from Glossier, you can select a perfume sample at checkout. They usually give you a few skincare sample options too but I always get the perfume sample to keep on hand for traveling, my purse, etc. 

Have you tried Glossier? I haven't used many of their skincare products yet, but curious if people like those. 

P.s. This post is not in any way sponsored by Glossier, but if you sign up with my link, I get a small store credit. Thanks in advance for contributing to my little luxury fund.
