If you haven’t being hiding under a rock lately, it won’t have escaped your notice that Glossier has finally landed in the UK. I avoided the initial surge of orders, however, over Black Friday they had a 20% off promotion across their whole line, therefore I thought it was the perfect opportunity to two out two things from the range that I had wanted to try the most.
The Glossier Cloud Paints intrigued me, which did come as somewhat as a surprise even to me because nine times out of ten I will always opt for a powder blush as opposed to cream. There are four shades available, beam, puff, haze and dusk. After watching a number of reviews and reading about them online I decided to go for the most neutral of the shades, I chose dusk. Upon delivery, which was incidentally super quick, despite it being Black Friday, I noticed that the Cloud Paint tubes are tiny! They are much smaller than I had initially expected and are in my opinion quite expensive for how much you get.
Dusk when first applied is quite a dark peach shade, in fact, I was initially rather worried that this would be too dark for me, however upon application to the cheeks and a gentle blend out, this looks beautiful and adds a nice natural flush to the cheeks. In hind sight, I wish I had perhaps picked up a berry toned shade as well as that would have been really nice for the winter months. For my first delve into the cloud paint experience I have to say that I like them quite a lot; I just wish that they were a bit bigger as £15 seems really expensive for such a tiny little tube.
The texture of the cloud paint is super smooth and it blends effortlessly. I haven’t tried applying this with a brush yet, as in all honesty I do prefer to use cream blushes with my fingers as I find that I achieve a better finish this way. I have also noticed, that if you look really closely (only really noticeable when swatched on the back of your hand) that there are very small glitter particles within this.
Overall, I really like this a lot, it is a bit different to the normal blushes I reach for on a daily basis; however I like that as it is nice to switch up your routine every once in a while.
The Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, is, I cannot lie the main reason that I made my order over Black Friday. I heard so much about this cleanser that I just had to order it as cleansers are right up there with my favourite types of beauty products. It is harder to review this currently as my order only arrived on Tuesday, therefore less than a week in is hardly any basis to form a full review of this. Having said that, my first experience with it has been very positive. I haven’t yet used it to attempt to remove make up, I don’t think I will use this to do that as I doubt it will be robust enough to remove foundation properly. I can see this being my cleanser choice of the morning as it is really light and refreshing. In fact, dare I say that I have stumbled upon the closest product to resemble my beloved La Roche Posay Physiological Gel? It certainly feels that way at the minute.
The Milky Jelly Cleanser retails at £15 which I don’t think is too bad in the grand scheme of things as you do get a relatively decent amount at 177ml.
