Glossier – the brand that I am not nearly cool enough to use but keeps sucking me in with their flawless marketing and minimal chic aesthetic. Just take my money. I have been waiting to use up the rest of my tube of Boy Brow before I placed an order for their new mascara, it’s been a tense few weeks as I was sure that it would sell out but I was in luck. There were also a couple of new products that I have been waiting to try and some of them I anti-hauled but purchased anyway because I’m a jackass. Judge me later, let’s get to the goodies!!
Boy Brow – This is my favourite brow product, it is super easy to use and adds just enough definition to my brows. I am not a fan of super done brows and this strikes a perfect balance of natural but polished. Apparently, I ordered the wrong shade, I usually use blonde so we’ll see how this goes – you’d think I’d know what shade of my perfect brow product I use…Anyway, I used to feel that this product was overpriced and the tube is teeny-weeny but it lasts forever and you don’t need a ton to get fluffy brows.
Wowder in Light/Medium – So, this might have been a mistake, some of the reviews did mention that the lightest shade was too dark for fair skin tones but the only areas that I want this for are around my mouth and under my eyes. Every powder that I have is simply too drying for these areas but since I wear my makeup for 10+ hours, I have to set it. This claims to be smoothing and blurring without being cakey – we shall see. It is definitely expensive, you only get .25 ounces for $22, I hope it’s good and I love the package!
Lash Slick – This mascara claims to mimic the look of lash extension (uh-huh) without clumping your lashes up. I love some phat lashes, so we’ll see if this is too ‘tint-like’ for my preference. This is supposed to be approved for sensitive eyes which is one of the reasons I went for it, most mascara irritates my eyes and I am just getting to a point that I don’t want to deal with that everyday just to have huge lashes. What has happened to me? I don’t even know myself anymore. This product is formulated with vegan biotin but is not vegan since it also contains beeswax. I am excited, if I have time, I will post my first impressions tomorrow!
Lidstar – This is the product that I anti-hauled and one of the reasons why is the test-tube packaging and I stand by that. This packaging is stupid (I’m mature) and I don’t get it, what a departure from the rest of their product packaging. I have been wearing tons of creme shadows lately, they are quick and easy and feel more summery. I had to chuck several pots of shadow due to them drying out and I think that these won’t have that issue so the stupid packaging might come through and I can appreciate that.
If you haven’t heard of Glossier, it is a US based indie brand and their products are cruelty free, paraben free and I am sure that they have a whole host of other trendy ‘free-of’ claims. If you can get past the whole hyper-millennial moded marketing then they are a great brand to support. Side note, I just read an article that China is producing brain-damaged monkeys for medical testing and I have pledged to not purchase anything manufactured in or exported from China – I probably have to throw out most everything in my apartment but I cannot support that. That’s like a whole other level of just appalling and the Chinese government is nuts, I feel sorry for its citizens. This post took a turn, I am tapping out now but will be sure to report back on how I feel about these items!
