Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products from Glossier

Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products from Glossier

I wanted to share my Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products from Glossier with you. Glossier is the cool girl cruelty free beauty brand. They have minimalist packaging, which I find strangely appealing.

About Glossier

Glossier claims to be inspired by what girls need in real life. They make easy-to-use basic items that form the backbone of your unique beauty routine. Glossier was created by Emily Weiss, the woman behind IntoTheGloss.com.

Glowy, dewy skin is their thing, and I have to say I love it. I appreciate their skincare first approach to beauty. As someone who does not want to wear a pound of foundation on my face, I do believe in doing the most that you can for your skin with skincare first. If you’re someone like me who has skin issues (in my case it’s rosacea), it can make you want to cake your face with foundation. But now that I have my skin issues managed as well as I can, I want to use the least amount of foundation necessary, so that some of my real skin peeks through.

1. Perfecting Skin Tint in Light

I  used to be torn about the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in Light because it is so very light coverage and I don’t have perfect skin. I have redness from rosacea. I always want to hide my redness. Finally with the help of Mickey I hit on the perfect way to apply this foundation, which made me fall in love with it. Somehow, when layered with my favorite concealers and primer, I feel like my skin looks amazing. Perfecting Skin Tint has Diamond powder in it, which is supposed to brighten the face and blur imperfections. I think it does that nicely. It’s also moisturizing.

I start by priming my skin with Urban Decay Optical Illusion Primer. Then I conceal around the face with Kat Von D Lock It Concealer in L1 and L3. I finish by applying Perfecting Skin Tint in Light. I usually mix in a few drops of a white foundation mixer to make it a better match for my skintone. This gives me ultra luminous skin. (See my luminous foundation routine tutorial.)

Another way to wear this is to mix it with Cover FX Custom Cover Drops. That helps to add the coverage I need for my rosacea. I still have to mix white into it, though.

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint is only available in 5 shades. I do wish they had a lighter shade available.

Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products from Glossier - Boy Brow

Glossier Boy Brow Review Swatches Black and Brown

2. Glossier Boy Brow in Black

Glossier Boy Brow is an all-in-one type of brow product. It thickens, fills in and grooms the brows in place without giving you sharpie brows. It’s inspired by brow pomade.

Boy Brow comes in 4 shades – Black, Brown, Blonde and Clear. Swatched above are Brown and Black. I prefer Black because my natural hair color is very close to black and I tint my brows black. Brown is too warm and orangey on me, as I need neutral / cooler tones. It’s seriously the easiest way for me to do my brows. I just run the wand through my brows and I’m done!

I read in an interview that Glossier said Black was the most popular shade. The article implied that people are wearing the wrong shade for their brows. However, I think too many people assume that you should wear brown and call it a day. People like me prefer deeper, cooler tones so I’m glad that’s an option. I do wish that they had an option for redheads though!

Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products from Glossier - Haloscope

3. Haloscope in Moonstone

Halosope is a super gorgeous dewy highlighter. It’s hydrating for dry skin. It’s not glittery in the slightest and comes in three shades. Moonstone is a white based opalescent, making it perfect for pale skin like mine. Quartz is a pearly sheen that blends in with my skintone. Topaz is a sun-kissed glow.

I love how this feels and if I want to have a very fresh, dewy look, this highlighter helps me achieve it. I prefer to use it as a base for my Makeup Geek Celestial highlighter if I’m layering products to make them last all day.

I did include a swatch of the Stretch Concealer in Light. It’s unfortunately too peachy / too dark for my skintone. It has such an interesting formula. It’s made with elastic micro waxes to move with your face instead of caking up. It’s only available in 5 shades. It claims to disappear into the widest range of skintones but as you can see on my hand, not in my case.


Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask Review

4. Moisturizing Moon Mask

The Moisturizing Moon Mask is touted as the most hydrating treatment Glossier could come up with. My skin agrees! It’s got sweet almond oil, soybean oil, glycerin, shea butter, aloe vera, squalane, licorice root extract, lemon extract, honey and hyaluronic acid.

I recently mentioned this in my best face masks for dry skin because it’s life changing for me. I’ve worn it as a sleeping mask, but I prefer to use it in the daytime as a moisture booster. It also works really well after I’ve done a liquid peel.

Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products from Glossier - Milky Jelly Cleanser
5. Milky Jelly Cleanser

The Milky Jelly Cleanser is a recent love of mine. I just started using it. It’s a very creamy formula that really softens the skin as it cleanses. It doesn’t strip my dry skin or make it feel tight. It has allantoin in it, which is soothing for sensitive skin like mine. This is an excellent cleanser, especially when you’re dealing with cold, dry weather.

What do you think of Glossier and their skincare first approach to makeup?


  1. I never tried any of their products as of yet. However, the Glossier’s Moisturizing Moon Mask and also their Milky jelly cleanser. Thanks so much for this review and information.

  2. Thanks So Much for Sharing Your Top 5 Favorite Glossier Products With Us, I Really Appreciate it! I Have Never Had the Opportunity to Try Glossier but I Have Heard Rave Reviews About it From a Ton of Beauty Bloggers and Friends of Mine! All of These Products Look & Sound Amazing but I Already Trust Your Judgement Though! I Would ReLly Like to Try the Perfecting Skin Tint in Light but I Have Very Fair Skin So I Would Hope it Would Be Light Enough but You Also Have Fair Skin and it Looks Great On You! I Seriously Need to Invest in That White Foundation Mixer That I Always Hear You Talk About b/c Foundations are Always Too Dark On Me! Well Thanks Again for Sharing Courtney, Have a Lovely Day Sweetie! – Jana

  3. Glossier just launched their new blush today – Cloud Paint! I’m excited because it has collagen in it to help plump & retain moisture

  4. I really love the idea(glad to see it with other brands too) of incorporating skincare into beauty products, and centering your beauty routine around great skincare is the best approach because instead of only having coverage and having to add more coverage, you are tackling the base which leads to a beautiful canvas to work with, and then you are able to use less product, and have that gorgeous healthy looking glow-your skin is looking amazing! That way you can really use a more lightweight product, and a concealer/product for extra coverage where you need it. The Perfecting Tint(I need to go back to your luminous foundation routine!) It may be something that I can incorporate with the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer-that’s a product you can use as a concealer(definitely great under the eye), that you can sheer out for a more luminous sheer look(either with a product like Embryolisse Lait Creme/or Matt, they just released a primer for it that has a mixing tray) and then you would use it alone in areas where you need additional coverage. So the Glossier could be a good product to incorporate! I really love the look and consistency of the highlighters-I really love the shades, perfect for fair skin, I love a neutral candlelit-like highlighter, so the Haloscope. I also need to put that on my list as well as the Greens mask you recommended. 🙂 I would try more of the skincare if I had dryer skin but that one is great for all skin types. By the way, this makeup look is SO gorgeous on you! One of my favorites that you’ve done!!! Skin, cheeks, eyes(liner, dimension) :<3

    1. It does! I’ve heard amazing things about The Ordinary from my friends over at Beautylish! They have very ingredient specific products which is great-have you done a post by chance on any of their products or have anything that you’ve liked from them? @cosmetopiadigest

  5. The skin tint and the lip balm are my favorites. I got lucky a makeup show I worked on was sponsored by Glossier so I got a great goody bag. I actually mix the skin tints sometimes, because they aren’t perfectly accurate for me.

  6. Oh, perfect! Now I need to place an order 😉

    I actually just received the Priming Moisturizer yesterday and I already own the Stretch Concealer. I think I need to try the rest of the line, though. Especially the cleanser, mask, and Haloscope!

  7. I’ve heard of this brand but had no knowledge of anything they produce. I’m curious to try #2-5 here in your post. They all sound fab. Wish that concealer was lighter though!
