My newest makeup/skincare obsession is the Glossier Phase 1 Set.  I am not someone who switches makeup products constantly, when I find something I love, I stick with it and use it for a very long time.. this being no exception! I love their products, their packaging, and of course their philosophy. “We believe that beauty should be fun, easy, imperfect, and personal.” 

A little background on this brand incase it’s new to you, famous blog “Into The Gloss” creator Emily Weiss created this brand after pursuing her passion for beauty, interviewing models, makeup artists and the women she admires most in her life about what beauty products they use and why.  After gaining a loyal, worldwide following of her blog, an experienced beauty team, tons of research and product testing – Glossier was born!

All of their products are designed to enhance what you already have, are high quality and start with perfectly primed & prepped skin to a flawless finish. The Phase 1 Set includes, a soothing face mist, priming moisturizer, balm dotcom and a perfecting skin tint. Start with the soothing face mist immediately after washing your face to prepare skin for moisturizer. The beneficial key ingredients include, rosewater (soothing & smells amazing), aloe (hydrating) and glycerin (retains moisture).  The next step is the priming moisturizer, apply a generous amount to prep your face for the perfecting skin tint. Priming makes a HUGE difference when applying makeup. If you feel like your makeup smudges or doesn’t look that good after a few hours of wear, start with a great primer, it makes all the difference.  This specific one plumps skin while providing deep moisture, reduces redness and calms inflammation, improves texture and protects against cell damage.  If those factors alone don’t sell you, I don’t know what will!


After your face is primed & moisturized, it’s time for the perfecting skin tint. The key ingredients are diamond powder, glycerin & polymer x, which in turn brighten, minimize the appearance of pores, and give a slight lifted look to the face. I love this skin tint, I don’t consider it “full coverage” but it blends really well and easily matches skin tone and creates glowing, beautiful skin.  I love using balm dotcom on my lips, a VERY little goes a long way. It’s really versatile and can be used just about anywhere that needs moisturizing, lips, cuticles & any rough patches. I LOVE that their products are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, paraben free, not tested on animals, great for ALL skin types & work so well. I don’t know how many times I’ve bought a ton of beauty products and end up with dry skin, uneven complexion, super oily t-zone within minutes. Not the case with these. I am obsessed. 🙂
