Glossier Lash Slick & Cloud Paint
Lash Slick - I had read a lot of reviews online about this, so I was fully prepared for what it was going to be: a lengthening, defining, 'your lashes but better' mascara. Housed in a light pink tube (because glossier) this formulation wont give you volume, but it really gives length, definition and curl. The brush (see below) combs each and every lash and doesn't clump. For day to day I really like this, it's personally what I generally look for in a mascara.
This doesn't aggravate my eyes either which is always a win, they suggest warm water to remove it and it does whip it right off, so no rubbing. The formula also didn't flake on me which was great.
Do not buy this if you are looking for big voluminous 'baby doll' type lashes, it will not deliver that... it provides length and definition, so if thick lashes are your thing then I would probably avoid this.
My bug bear.. is the curl doesn't hold as well throughout the day, it does drop a bit.
Also, I'm on the fence about the price... £14 for a mascara isn't out of the ordinary, but as someone who has been quite religious to drugstore mascara's this was a slight pinch for me.
However I am honestly reaching for this daily and really enjoying it, so maybe I might have to suck this one up...
Overall... I really like this... I like the length and definition it provides, plus the fact that it doesn't aggravate my eye eczema is a HUGE plus, as a lot of mascara's do this.
I wouldn't wear it for a night out but for day to day its great. Just consider if you want big lashes probably avoid this!
This is a product that when it was released, I was pretty damn certain I was going to enjoy, and I must say, it does not disappoint. The colours which are "inspired by NY sunsets" are describes as a 'seamless cheek colour' and it comes in four shades.
I went for Dusk... It's a browny-coral-nude. I initially avoided the pink-y ones as I was unsure if they where going to make me look a bit ruddy, plus I generally prefer a bronzed complexion.
The packaging firstly is so perfect, it looks like a little paint tube and I bloody love it. A little goes a very long way, so at £15 a blush this is going to last you a long time. It blends out to a sheer brownish- nude with a glow-y finish, which you could also use as a bronzer on the high points of your face.
From what Glossier have said, these are designed to be mixed together to create custom colours and they do offer a discount if you buy 2. On using this I think I may take a plunge to a pink colour as I think it will give a nice natural flush.
I really don't have anything bad to say about this, potentially a few more colours in the selection would be nice? Buut, this is a really great product that I would whole heartedly recommend, especially if your generally a bit of a blush avoider, but would like to dip your toe.
Also, sorry alot of the beauty content has been a bit Glossier heavy! A beauty favourites is coming soon! :)
Have you tried either of these?
