The Glossier Haul.

Unsurprisingly, my trip to New York earlier this month led me straight to the Glossier Showroom. My main priorities on the trip were: 1. get married 2. buy as much Glossier as I possibly can.

I achieved both, you’ll be pleased to know.

The showroom is different than I expected, set in an office space with an elevator that opens right on to the showroom. Inside, only testers are out on display and the assistants help you to fill out little checklists to choose your products. This way you can spend some time testing everything out before you pick what you want.

Personally, I didn’t love the checklist idea – I ended up missing out a few products I would have loved to have tried! Like the SPF and the Cloud Paints, somehow I didn’t see them on the form and ended up leaving without them. Sad times (but an excuse to head back!).

Anyway, here’s what I did get…

Brace yourselves.

Glossier Phase One Set; This handy kit contains the coveted Milky Jelly Cleanser, a gorgeously soothing product that melts away makeup and leaves the skin feeling fresh. I love that this doesn’t strip the skin, it really is a delight to use.
Also included is the Priming Moisturizer, a lovely light day cream that preps the skin for makeup, leaving the complexion glowing and healthy. I love this but it can be a tad on the light side!
Finally, there’s the Balm Dotcom. This comes in quite a few colours and flavours but I went up for straight up original. I love this as lip balm, but the multi-purpose properties truly sell it to me!

Glossier Super Glow; this treatment has the texture of water, but it’s packed with Vitamin C and Magnesium to perk up the complexion and even out tone over time. I love this as it feels like I’m not using anything at all! I’ll keep you posted on my progress with this one…

The Mask Duo; I was most excited about getting my hands on these cuties – two masks, one designed to detox, one meant for moisturising.
The Mega Greens Galaxy Pack is applied first to draw out impurities and promise a lovely, clear complexion. The Moisturising Moon Mask is a plumping, smoothing and brightening concoction that transforms the skin! I adore both, although I do have a bit of anxiety over using them up before I can get to the Showroom again!


Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint; Another product I really, really wanted to get my paws on; this is a lightweight but miracle-working tint that evens out tone and leaves the skin looking perfected and dewy. From first use, I was blown away by how dreamy this is! It blends so well, and spot scars and redness are camouflaged without the cakey finish. Divine.

Stretch Concealer; I picked this up on a whim, but it’s actually one of my favourite finds. I don’t usually love pot concealers but I’ve found a way around this – I use my Artis Brush to pick up product and improve application.
This is amazing for days where you want to wear the aforementioned Skin Tint but need a little extra coverage. It. Conceals. Everything. You need this.

Glossier Haloscope in Quartz; I’ve heard so much about this skin-transforming highlighter, and I deliberated for ages over which shade to get, eventually settling on Quartz. Oh my god, this just works wonders! It’s such a natural, dewy highlight… it’s very hard to go back to using powder illuminators after discovering this little gem.

Quite the haul my dudes, but definitely a brand I’m smitten with. Now, who’s going to do a Glossier run for us all?!

    Oh god this is absolutely beauty porn ???? I can’t wait for them to come to the UK xx

  • I can’t wait for Glossier to come to the UK! I literally have a list of what I want already πŸ™‚ xxx


  • Oooh these products sounds fab. The checklist thing reminds me of shopping in IKEA lol x


  • I wish Glossier was easier to get my hands on here in Australia – I really want to try it, also partly because the packaging is so aseptically pleasing haha. Great post and photos girl xx.

  • I somehow completely forgot to visit their Showroom when I was in New York in May.. I’m so gutted as everything looks and sounds fab x

    I never tried Glossier products but they seem really nice!


    Love the sound of these products and am always always up for trying out new skincare products! I’ll send you my list next time haha!
    Love, Marlinde x

    • I heard they are coming soon πŸ™‚

  • Ah, such a lovely review! Glossier honestly sounds like such a dreamy brand, everything looks amazing! x

  • Holly

    I so want to try all of these! I need to get my hands on some asap.

    Holly x

  • Oh my god I’m so jealous. Glossier literally sound like the dream! They need a UK store asap!

  • I just bought the Birthday Balm dotcom and man oh man is it heavenly. If you can get your hands on Cloud Paint I absolutely recommend the shades Haze and Dusk. I use them daily and get so many complements. xx

  • Oh boy am I excited to try out Glossier, it really has been everywhere! I would recommend that you watch GRWM from Glossier… they have so many variations of it and they’re short and to the point but probably my favourite GRWM that I’ve watched!!


  • Love how buying Glossier was the next thing on the agenda after getting married, hahaha! I would love to try some Glossier bits some day.

    I keep hearing about Glossier, I love the sound of these masks and the highlighter, now where do I get my hands on them?


  • Juliana Paz

    A few of my friend are constantly raving about Glossier and it makes me more and more tempted to try. Hopefully soon theres quite a few products that have been calling my name. Lastly how aesthetically pleasing is the packaging?!


  • I love how you’ve prioritised going to Glossier right after getting married (I would do the same!).

    Its such a shame you didn’t pick the Cloud Paints! (I think all four would look lovely on you). Also BOY BROW?! I have not come across one brow gel in the UK that compares to it. PMR (Rich Moisturiser) is also another excellent product with a slight lavender smell. Would recommend you pick these three up next time, especially in time for winter as PMR will be useful then πŸ™‚ glossier will be shipping to UK later this year, but until then you can use mail forwarding which isn’t that expensive when you’re spending a lot on the product anyway πŸ™‚ (I’ve posted all about it in my blog)

    I’ve never used Glossier! Love this haul

  • Congrats for the wedding!!

    I haven’t tried Glossier yet because I prefer trying the products before buying them – unless they have amazing reviews and are really affordable – so I think I’ll need to go to New York πŸ˜›

  • Kathryn

    I have so many things on my wish list from Glossier! I have heard they will start shipping to the UK soon.

  • I’ve heard so many great things about Glossier! πŸ™‚ <3 Hahaha sounds like you had a great time in New York (getting married and shopping, of course LOL)! And oh, I don't think I'm such a big fan of the checklist idea too… =/

    XO, Elizabeth T.

  • So many beautiful picks Kate! Loving your photography here too.

  • I’m going to the Glossier Showroom next month and this post moved my wishlist up from 3 or 4 items to all of them… I am not leaving without the sunscreen though so I’ll have to make sure I get that despite the checklist situation. Love the photos too!

  • I would also like to try the Cloud Paints! The masks sound lovely, I rarely hear people talk about them. I like the boy brow, but I love the stretch concealer!


  • Glossier is hands down one of my favorite brands right now, and I’m so glad you got to try some of their key products!! Skin Tint + Stretch Concealer have seriously become my everyday go-to products. I’m bummed you missed the Cloud Paints too because they are amazzing and so perfect for Summer! I hope you do pick up the rest of the Supers next time around, I think the three of them all work so beautifully together. Super Bounce is one of the best products ever – lightweight and gives that extra boost of moisture to the skin! Can’t wait to see all the Glossier you’ll try in the future πŸ™‚

  • Congrats on getting married!!

    So many glossier goodies! I’m sad you missed out on the cloud paints because they’re gorgeous! Personally, super glow isn’t my fave serum they offer. I love super bounce the most because it leaves the skin so soft and supple, but I hope super glow gives you better results! The consistency really threw me off the first time I used it because it really is like water. I love the haloscopes! Moonstone is my personal favorite and another product I love from them is their Gen G lipstick! Jam and Crush are my two faves. Jam looks super scary and dark, but it’s so sheer and the perfect berry popsicle lip.

  • My favorite is their skin tint! Sooo lovely! Boy Brow is also awesome and I’m excited to try Milky Jelly Cleanser soon. Personally I didn’t care for Stretch Concealer because I found it creased but perhaps I’m not using it correctly…


  • looks like a great haul

  • I’ve been oogling over Glossier since Anna brought some back and I got to photograph it – it’s just so gorgeous!!

    I have been looking at this brand for a while and haven’t gotten around to purchasing anything yet! Thanks for your insightful review πŸ™‚



  • I’m definitely getting the stretch concealer when Glossier comes to the UK! So jealous that you got married in New York AND went to the show room. You’re just life goals Kate!

    Really wanting to try these out!


  • Glossier have been on my radar for so long! I’m almost glad they don’t ship to Australia because I know I’d end up buying the whole range!
