Brand on the Rise: Glossier

“We believe that beauty should be fun, easy, imperfect, and personal.”

If Kathleen Lights raves about something, chances are I will find myself adding it to my online cart within minutes. In her latest monthly favorites video, she raved about this lip balm from the brand Glossier. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical. I have never been one to be overly impressed by a lip balm. I have always just used my Aquaphor before I go to bed, and whatever balm I can find nearest to me right before I apply my lip products. When I got to the Glossier website, I found myself absolutely loving the minimal pink-and-white look of everything. I added the $12 lip balm to my cart, then realized that I had a code to get money off, leaving my total at $9 with free shipping. I figured I would take the plunge, and I ordered it. Below is a quick review of my experience with the brand and the product.

So when I opened my package, I wasn’t expecting any samples, so I was pleasantly surprised when I got a sample of their Priming Moisturizer (which I wanted to try next) and some adorable stickers (which I have already stuck to my mirror like a 13 year old girl). Anyway, on to the lip balm. I love the name, Balm Dot Com, and the packaging is very luxe and sleek. The past few nights I have been applying this right before bed, and when I wake up, I still feel it on my lips which is very impressive. It is a very thick, but non greasy formula that leaves my lips feeling very plump and hydrated.

This brand is on the rise, and I promise within the next few months it will gain a lot of popularity, especially with beauty bloggers and YouTube gurus. The brand is small, and their line is only a few products but they all seem to be very interesting and affordable. The whole company feels fresh and clean, and I cannot wait to place another order and see the Glossier name in magazines everywhere.

Let me know if you’ve tried anything from Glossier and how you liked it! Thanks for reading!!

Glowingly yours,
