    Glossier Haul

    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!!…

    It’s a No From Me – Glossier

    Have you ever been so hyped over a product that you purchase two and then it’s terrible and you hate it? That’s about where I am at with Glossier’s newest skincare product, Solution. I was convinced that I would enjoy this product, it is formulated with several acids that I use and enjoy in my daily skincare routine but this is definitely not the solution. This product is described as a daily exfoliating liquid with glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids. With continued usage, it is supposed to be clearing, brightening and smoothing. Other ingredients include aloe and other skin-soothing complexes. The claims were pretty lofty but having used products like this before and enjoyed…

    It Starts with You.

    Things that piss me off – the Doomsday Clock, a group of egomaniacs with a god complex (Bulletin of Atomic Scientists) casting predictions on when the world will end. What I find ironic and hysterical is that the clock was moved ahead due to the impending threat of nuclear warfare. What is even more ironic is that the clock is a result of the first atomic bombs being used in modern warfare in WWII. So back up, scientists invented nuclear weapons – the actual means that they are warning will end our existence, they feel the need to warn us of impending doom and want us to do something about…

    Glowing Skin with Glossier!

    I don’t usually talk about products that I don’t own or haven’t used in the past outside of Wishlists and Anti-Hauls but I cannot contain my excitement for this new product just dropped by Glossier! It’s simply called Solution and it is a liquid, chemical exfoliant. It is formulated with lactic, glycolic and salicylic acid – some of my very favourite acids for keeping my skin smooth and clear. This product also contains skin-soothing and conditioning components which is important when you are basically dissolving the outer most layer of your skin. I love peeling my face, I use chemical exfoliants and enzyme peels as a consistent part of my skincare routine.…

    Glossier – Hot or Not

    I don’t think that I have ever done a post like this…? Mostly because I cannot think of another brand that I have tried almost everything from. Brands are just releasing so many products now days, I think that this will probably remain the case. Ever since I read an Into The Gloss article about the beauty editor found Glossier, I was intrigued and wanted to try everything which I eventually have except for their lip gloss! I feel that I have developed a fairly good feel for the brand and might be a reliable source of information. I would be a terrible sales person 😛 These opinions are just my own…

    Cloud Hate

    You guys, Lottie London is now at ULTA – they are offering so many new brands it is driving me insane! And making me broke but I cannot resist placing a Zoella/Lottie London order. Don’t judge me. Or judge me, I’m judging me 😛 So, we all know that I am a huge Glossier fan – the minimal packaging, the skin first mantra, blah, blah, blah. I have tried almost everything that they have launched and found very few duds. This next product wasn’t totally a dud for me but I have other products that are similar that I just like and use more. It makes me sad to say that because I was…

    What’s in My Bag – Summer Edition

    I picked up the It Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact Serum Foundation because Allure told me it would change my life. The editors at Allure are liars. I thought I would love this because it is formulated with their signature cream and it has loads of SPF and anti-aging benefits. I hate it, I am wearing it right now and I just want to slap my face off of my face. I will share a full review at another time but until then, literally the worst. Seeing as how I have felt the need to touch my face a billion times today, I thought it would be a good day…

    Product of the Week – Glossier Boy Brow

    I was in the elevator last night with my neighbor? I think he’s my neighbor – or maybe we just live on the same floor, which might not count as a neighbor. Anyway, he looks at my tattoos and says to me, I bet you regret that. Which my response should have been, I dunno, do you regret being ugly? He is an unattractive man, in my opinion but I can’t say that because it just isn’t socially acceptable. Which I don’t understand, I don’t get how some things are OK to comment on but others aren’t. Like, the whole he can’t help the way he looks, bullshit and it is bullshit – maybe…

    Glossier PMR

    If there is one beauty treatment that I desperately want to try but have never plucked up the courage to do so, it is eyelash extensions! I don’t know why I can’t do it, I have sat through all kinds of beauty treatments but this one terrifies me. What if my eyelashes just fall out – I would be that .01% of the population that this would happen to. I would wake up with bald eyes – I just don’t know how one would correct that? I suppose by wearing falsies, it has probably never even happened but there is a first time for everything :p If I do it,…

    Product of the Week – Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser

    The weather has me just climbing the walls – I don’t even like spring/summer but I want to see the sun! I always thought that I would love living in the Pacific Northwest, I’d love to live in Seattle but we are in about day 7 of overcast and I am over it. It isn’t raining, it isn’t doing anything – just cloudy and dirty looking. I am over it, moving on. I know that I just shared a skincare post but for the Product of the Week, I am sharing a face wash! I mentioned really enjoying this product over another rose cleanser that I tried as a sample…
