Glossier Miami Pop Up Wynwood

I’m back from a mini vacation! We took a few days off to visit the other side of Florida and drove to Miami for some good food, more sunshine, more beaches and shopping. Several of my readers let me know about the Glossier Pop Up Store in Miami so we stopped by to check it out. It is one of the cutest pop up installations I’ve ever seen! It’s located in Wynwood on 222 NW 26th Street, open until April 28th. Hours are listed on the Glossier website. There are a lot of testers for you to play with, helpful staff and it’s basically an Instagram dream come true. Cute displays, mirrors for makeup application and selfies, postcards and the entire Glossier + Glossier Play line. Weekends can get pretty crowded and busy with a line but they move fairly quickly. We went to the pop up on two separate days because our first time there it was so crowded I didn’t want to wait to check out and purchase product.

Mini haul below including the Glossier Zit Stick, new Mango Balm Dot Com, Lash Slick, Glossier Play Niteshine in Pale Rose and Deep Copper, High Shine Lip Lacquers in Pony and Blow Up. I also tested their Milky Oil which seemed pretty impressive in taking off the eyeliners from the back of my hand. Unfortunately they were sold out so I ordered it online. I haven’t had a chance to test the makeup but the highlighters are tiny – they girls at the store explained they are dab and blend kind of highlighters and that does seem the best way to apply. A little goes a long way. I did try the new Mango Balm Dot Com and it has the most delicious sweet mango scent to it. I didn’t think I would like it because it’s really sweet, but I actually really love it.

We also saw the cute Mango Pop Up cart in the Miami Design District! You can check their Instagram to see where it’s going to show up next. On our second trip to the Pop Up we saw they had moved these to the actual store in the hallways but they might move again.

Glossier Black Tie Set for Holiday 2016

November 16, 2016

Glossier Black Tie Set

Glossier just launched their limited-edition Black Tie Set ($50) for holiday and it comes packaged in the cutest white box with a satin black ribbon. Inside you get four full-sized beauty products including a clear lip gloss, No. 1 Eye Pencil in Graphite, Nail Polish in #glossierpink and Haloscope Highlighter in Moonstone. The packaging is so perfect: cute, feminine, glam all in one and I just couldn’t resist ordering one out of curiosity and I’m glad I did.

Glossier Black Tie Set

The set is designed to give you a “Glossier party look.” To me all the items have an understated, subtle barely-there kind of glow rather than a party vibe unless you’re the kind of girl who likes to party without much makeup. When I think about each item individually: I really didn’t need another clear lip gloss, I have a number of highlighters that I already love and use, the graphite liner is something I wouldn’t really pick out on my own as I tend to gravitate towards bronze shades, and the pink nail polish seemed a bit basic. In spite of all these feelings I still really love this set and love the youthful fun vibe it gives. Thoughts on each of the items:

  • The Glossier Lip Gloss is clear but comes with a pink tint giving it a special girly kind of feel. It’s thick and slightly sticky but not tacky.
  • The Moonstone cheek highlighter is very sheer and dewy with a youthful feel. It has an emollient feel with a dewy finish reminding me of the RMS Living Luminizer but in packaged in a twist up tube.
  • The #glossierpink nail polish exceeded my expectations in formula and the brush is really good. Almost a Dior kind of good. The color appears to be your basic kind of pink but on the fingers with two coats it has extremely good smooth coverage and gives a feminine dainty kind of feel. It lasted on my hands for a good 7 days without any tip wear but you do need to use a good base coat to make it stick/adhere to the nails. I used Formula X The System Originals base and top coat when testing.
  • The No. 1 Pencil in Graphite is a shimmery gunmetal, it has just the right amount of shimmer without being glittery, texture is smooth

Overall I love the set even if it doesn’t really give me a party look. I did expect to like it as much as I do especially since I think Glossier items more for the super minimalist no-makeup kind of girl. The items are still well made and fun. There’s a very youthful vibe to this set which I think is what appeals to me. The packaging is just too cute. I love that the clear gloss has a pinkish tint to the formula.

The set is limited-edition and retails for $50, available exclusively online at Glossier. You can save 10% off your first order by clicking this referral link. I think this was worth the price and am really happy with everything. If you’ve tried this set or other Glossier items let me know in the comments!

Quick note – I’ve had some site updates and changes and it appears some of you haven’t been able to post comments. I’m working to get this fixed, in the meantime thank you for your patience!

Glossier Balm Dotcom Universal Skin Salves in Rose, Cherry, Mint and Coconut Flavors

May 17, 2016

 

Glossier just launched three new flavors of their Balm Dotcom Universal Skin Salve ($12 each for .5 fl oz/15 ml) in Rose, Mint and Cherry and they are super cute. Everything from the pink plastic pouch, design on the boxes and color block design of the tubes screams fun. I’ve been a fan of the Coconut one and liked it enough to repurchased it (and ordered multiples as gifts for friends) so when I heard there were more launching I knew I had to try them. (Use this referral link to save 10% off your first order.)
  • Mint is a clear shade that has a very nice mint flavor and scent. I find mint hit or miss – yes it can be refreshing and cooling, but some scents or flavors are ones I don’t want to wear. Mint is one that can have a toothpaste vibe which I like for toothpaste, but not to wear. Luckily the Glossier Mint is one of the good variations.
  • Rose has a soft rose scent that isn’t overpowering and isn’t overly sweet. This one has a soft pink tint but after a few minutes it basically looks clear. It feels smooth and lush on the lips.
  • Cherry smells exactly like a candied cherry and has a cool-red-pink tint that shows up on the lips like a soft stain. I personally do not like cherry at all (I won’t eat anything with cherries or cherry-flavored) so this one is a no-go for me. I’m not sure if it’s my aversion to cherries that affected my opinion on this one but I felt this one to be on the thick side – and not in a good way.
  • Coconut is one I reviewed when it launched last year. It sold out quickly and was out of stock on their website for months. I thought it was a limited offer and would never come back but I’m glad that it did. If you compare the old post to this one and look closely you may notice they changed the packaging slightly. Now there is a longer tube with more product but the overall design is pretty much the same.
Formula-wise these are described as universal skin salves that you can use on lips, face, cuticles – basically anywhere you have dryness. These have a medium to thick texture that I prefer to use on the lips or cuticles only (I haven’t been brave enough to test on the face). They add moisture to my lips and because the flavors are fun (cherry excluded) I don’t mind reapplying.

 

A quick look at the packaging and swatches:

 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

 

If you’re one who doesn’t like reapplying product or if you want something more intense, I do think the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Masks are better – but the ingredients, concept, packaging and purpose is completely different. The Bite Beauty Agave Lip Masks are designed to be a leave-on lip mask and they don’t have any petroleum (while the Glossier products do). They are also more than two times the price (but I don’t mind). Below a look at Champagne and Smashed reswatched on the lips.
After I reviewed Coconut last year, a few of my friends asked me, “it looks cute but do you think it’s worth the price?” These are friends who are ok with a higher price tag for foundation, concealer, powder and some skincare, but for lip balms they are type who won’t spend more than $5 and will always go for what they can find at the drugstore because according to their assessment of the ingredients, they say “they’re exactly the same.”
I do think these are worth it. I love the packaging, the marketing and the cute zipped pink pouch they come inside. When you order these from Glossier the box it’s shipped in is also very cute, but I have a lot of appreciation for little fun touches. Things like a simple printed interior of the box with fun branding and cute sayings, adorable stickers (even though I won’t ever use them, I gift them away) and extra touches on the actual product boxes all get me excited. Even though the boxes are a throw away kind of thing, I still like them. If you’re budget conscious and also ingredient conscious (or perhaps as some may say more practical and less frivolous) then stick with your staples and what you love.

 

 

 

 

 

I really like the new launches, but my heart still belongs to Coconut because it’s like summer fun in a tube. Out of the new ones, I was surprised to find I really liked Mint because I’m really not a fan of mint-flavored beauty products. Rose is also really lovely. Cherry is a no-go for me but that’s primarily because I don’t like cherry anything (lemon or blueberry would also have been a no-go for me).

 

You can find the Glossier Balm Dotcoms in four flavors, Coconut, Rose, Mint and Cherry for $12 each. Right now they have a Trio Set for $30 (with Rose Coconut + Mint) which I believe is a limited-edition offer. If you click this referral link here you can save 10% off your first order. At this time I believe the only place you can buy these is directly on the Glossier website.

 

When I ordered these, there was a website glitch for the trio sets and they sent more than I ordered. Apparently it happened to more than one person and the Glossier team sent out a nice note saying we could keep our extras for ourselves or for friends. I’m giving away three sets + the coconut flavor and you can enter in the widget below. Details are as follows:
  • 3 distinct winners will be selected at random to win 1 pack of flavored balm dotcoms (coconut, rose, mint and cherry and pink pouch will be included!)
  • open internationally but you must be 18 years or older to enter
  • enter through widget below (comments to the blog post are welcome but will not be considered valid entries)
