It’s been a while since I reviewed some Glossier products. The last time I talked about them was when I was just getting to know their stuff. You can check out that review HERE. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with Glossier. I always reach out for their products whenever I feel like I wanted something light, easy, and natural to use. Even during this Summer, I always have a glossier product in my purse, and lately, I’ve been loving their Cloud Paints (0.33 oz: $18) for that sheer and breezy pop of color on the cheeks, as well as their Balm Dotcoms (0.5 oz: $12) for that multipurpose lip and skin moisturization.
Over time, I’ve collected a few more shades of the Glossier Balm Dotcoms as well as the Cloud Paints. What I love about the Balm Dotcoms are their versatility. I could either use them as a lip balm or as a skin cream and boy, do they smell so good. Each tube is pretty much a sensory experience. You can definitely smell the true scents of cherry, birthday cake, mint, etc. among other things. Try using these balms at night, and you will feel like you’re being transported somewhere dreamy, delicious, and nice. LOL. For me, these Balm Dotcoms are probably one of the best lip balms I’ve ever tried since they not only have that nice flavoring, they’re also very soothing and hydrating on the lips. The formula is perfect for restoring dry chapped lips to a hydrated one overnight. They also aide in softly removing dead skin cells as well as retaining the skin’s moisture. The consistency is very creamy, dense yet feels lightweight, and non-sticky. There are several flavors/shades to choose from, ranging from untinted to a sheer tint. The packaging is also cute and pretty much easy to carry everywhere.
Rose – smells like a true rose with a subtle pink tint
Cherry – strong bubblegum cherry with a sheer reddish tint
Birthday – delicious birthday cake with very subtle shimmer and slightly exfoliating (sugar bits). No tint.
Mint – true peppermint scent that feels cooling. No tint.
As for the Cloud Paints, they’re pretty much foolproof to use, and you can never apply too much since they’re easy to correct. They’re not the type of liquid blushes that are super staining. Instead, their pigments are sheer but buildable, kinda like being lit from within, or having that natural flush. There are several shades to suit everyone’s skin tone, plus there are two new shades that have been added recently to this Glossier liquid blush lineup – the Dawn and Storm shades, which I haven’t tried yet, but I will pretty soon. The formula is not very liquid, but more of a very lightweight creamy gel. It’s very easy to spread and blend around the cheeks and you can pretty much build its intensity. I didn’t notice any scent and it’s perfect to wear if you have oily skin. The overall effect of these liquid blushes is very natural.
Beam – soft peach
Haze – deep berry
Dusk – brownish nude
Overall, I am deeply in love with these Glossier Cloud Paints and Balm Dotcoms. As someone with an oily skin type and with a tendency to have dry lips, these products are heaven-sent. I love that they’re affordable, that they come in several colors and the fact that their packaging is SO cute. Also, if you buy Glossier’s products, you’ll get a free pink bubble pouch which is perfect for traveling or for just storing and organizing your favorite makeup and skincare.
