First Glossier

This may not be anything new for my neighbours down south but Glossier finally arrived in Canada! As someone who has been eyeballing and admiring their products from afar for quite awhile sometime, I couldn’t wait to get on their website to make an order the minute they debuted online in my country. Because I’ve heard some of them compared very well to the Ordinary I didn’t bother too much with their skincare line since, and opted for their makeup instead. Since making this order I made a second order already — I’d say this pretty much confirms how much I love Glossier already.



stretch concealer.

As I’ve been more into natural finishes that don’t hide my actually skin I needed to try out their Stretch Concealer. When a colour range is small or limited, I tend to be in-between shades most of the time so I went ahead and got the Medium and Dark shades. In no way am I bragging but bags or dark circles have never been an issue I felt like I needed to really deal with just yet. I do though think often times my under eye area can always use some brightening up since I do often look tired in that area. Glossier’s Stretch Concealer is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a concealer. It’s creamy which makes it very easy to blend into the skin flawlessly, and just lightly dusting on some finishing powder does the trick. It’s one of those finishes that do what they’re supposed to do, while complimenting your complexion by being a second skin and looking absolutely natural.

boy brow.

This is probably the most talked about Glossier product I’ve seen everywhere online. I picked up both the Brown and Black shades in Boy Brow to concocted for my perfect brow look. If you didn’t notice by now I have a thing for bold and dark brows, but often times they can end up looking very drawn in and boxy. A fixer up to that problem I’ve found are to use brow mascaras to help make the caterpillars look more natural again. I’d say Boy Brow compares a lot to my favourite Arbonne Tinted Brow Cream, and better yet at a more affordable price point. I’ve also found that Boy Brow has a more glossy finish just like how boys brows actually look… which makes sense, duh.

cloud paint.

It may come off weird to say from someone who loves makeup and all, but unfortunately blush isn’t something I normally experiment with too often. I feel like my skin undertones have some trouble mingling with certain colours so I never really know what to get. From the swatches of Cloud Paint online I knew Dusk with it’s brownish-pink tones was not going to let me down. I’m in love with how versatile this product is! Besides being a beautiful flush on the cheeks, I think it’s also perfect as a lip stain, and if you are a fair skin tone it would look great as a natural bronzer/contour. I’m currently tanned and leaning on the medium-dark side so Dusk on my skin looks like I spend some hours at the beach and have that wonderful flush of pink undertones from the sun.

generation G sheer matte lipstick.

If you’ve ever been envious of someone who has a naturally beautiful lip colour — you know, those people who don’t even really need to wear lipstick or anything because their lips are already as perfect as it is (grr) — you might want to look into the Generation G lipsticks to see if you can find the perfect match. These lipsticks were the ones that provoked my second order made to Glossier in a span of a week because of how stunning they are! I picked up the colours Cake (peachy nude) and Like (light powdery pink). On my naturally rosy pink lips, Cake is true to it’s description with a peachy-pink flush, while Like looks a medium pink on my lips (I also grabbed the colours Crush and Zip which I will do another post on later). These are the type of sheer lipsticks that won’t ever look bad even when you’re having one of those bad lip days.

balm dotcom.

When I first discovered Glossier, I was attracted to their Balm Dotcom skin salves for their adorable packaging, and since I could finally get my hands on them I couldn’t be happier to try them out! Of their collection of 6 different flavours, I choose the Coconut Balm and Birthday Balm. Coconut smells like everything you would imagine a beach vacation to smell like (aka. piña coladas), while Birthday smells like a delicious vanilla cake that ready to be eaten. Although both Balm Dotcoms I picked up are untinted, Birthday does have some subtle glitter reflex that adds such a bit more pop when added on top of their Generation G lipsticks. You might want to keep in mind that the Balm Dotcoms are pretty much glorified Petrolatum so if you’re not into that you definitely could skip out on these.

Have you gotten your hands on any Glossier products, if so what are your favourites?

    The sheer matte lipsticks look so good on you! I haven’t tried anything from them yet, it’s hard to tell what’s hyped up and what deserves the hype. Thanks for your reviews on the dotcom, I’m not into glorified petroleum either x

      Well in my opinion The Generation G lipsticks, stretch concealer, boy brow are the most well worth it. I also loved the cloud paint, and as fun as the balm dotcoms are I think anyone can skip out on them.

  2. The matte lipsticks looks too lovely though!! Would love to try it, have been on a mission to expand my lip collection. And a sheer one that makes it look natural is definitely something I’m searching for! Xx


    • Stacey says:

      I know what you mean! I’ve been also looking for the perfect sheer lipsticks that weren’t too sheer but also not too opaque either, and the Glossier ones are basically perfect for that look <3

  3. Kara says:

    The Generation G in Like looks amazing on you! And I’ve said it before but I’m obsessed with your photos! I have most of these products, but I might just have to get more of those lipsticks x

    • Stacey says:

      Coming from you that’s so nice because I’m so envious of your photos! Anyways thank you and I’m again tempted to just get all the lipsticks LOL

    This sounds like an excellent line I’ve never heard of them! Those lip sticks honestly look beautiful on you Stacey <3


  5. Absolutely love the detailed review on these products! I’ve been waiting for Glossier to hit Australia for about 2 years now (not even over-exaggerating) and this is making me want to try them out even more! Let me know if you do try their skin care as I’m super intrigued about them! Generation G and the Cloudpaints are also on the top of my list.

    Much love,

      I know what you mean! I’ve been following them forever on Instagram so when they finally started to ship to Canada I went crazy lol. I honestly don’t think I will be trying out their skincare unless they do something revolutionary, but the serums that they do have are very comparable to The Ordinary skincare brand and for more than half the price AND works on my stubborn acne-prone skin.

  6. Adore your pics and this looks great! 🙂


  7. JenniferQ says:

    I would really like to try Glossier, and support the brand since they’re selling in Canada.

  8. Maybe I’ve been living under a rock but I’ve never heard of Glossier. The products sound amazing though, especially that Boy Brow, my eyebrows definitely need help haha. You’re so lucky that you don’t need concealer, I look like I haven’t slept for a week without it xx


    • Stacey says:

      It’s alright girl! I only heard about Glossier from Instagram and they started off as only shipping in the US, but they’re slowly starting to ship out to over countries after a few years so it’s exciting if you’ve been following them for along time lol. I’m sure you look gorgeous without concealer, after all we are our own worst critics!

  9. I have heard about their brow gel the most and its something I want to try x

    • Stacey says:

      Thanks beautiful, I appreciate it! Glossier is moving with international shipping so I’m sure soon you’ll be able to get your hands on them!
