It comes in a cute pink and white box that's reusable! How cute.


Stretch Concealer


Stretch Concealer – Light Ingredients: Octyldodecanol, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/Hexastearate/Hexarosinate, Polyethylene, BeesWax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Microcrystalline Wax, Jojoba Esters, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Lecithin, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mica, Silica, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)


How cute is this packaging honestly? I adore the Glossier G so much.


It looks very dark in this, the photo doesn't do it justice, but it's the lightest shade and looks wonderful on pale skin!

The texture of this concealer is definitely one of a kind. It goes on dry, almost matte-like, but works with the heat on your skin to sink in and become dewy. It works with the oils on your skin and makes it blend-able. It's sheer coverage – very buildable! 


Left eye: no concealer. Right eye: one layer of stretch concealer.

The one thing that makes this concealer worth a re-purchase is that it doesn't lay into my creases AT ALL. It's honestly the first concealer I've tried that doesn't sink into my eye creases for once. I've never been much of a concealer girl, but Glossier has converted me.
Although Glossier's makeup is easy enough to use with your finger tips, I recommend using this concealer with a brush as the jar can be a hub for bacteria!


Generation G


Generation G – Leo Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Stearate, Polyethylene, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, C10-18 Triglycerides, Isohexadecane Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, PEG/PPG-20/23 Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Punica Granatum Extract, Silica, Aluminum Dimyristate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Isoceteth-10, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Laureth-4, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, BHT. MAY CONTAIN: Mica (CI 77019), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 33 Lake (CI 17200), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090)


This is the second Gen G lipstick I own, I wanted to compare Leo (brown) to Jam (magenta)! 


Left to right: Jam & Leo


Left to right: Jam swatched 4-5 times, Jam swatched once, Leo swatched once, Leo watched 4-5 times. 

I cannot get over how hydrating and complimentary these lipsticks are! It's easy and quick enough for me to apply without using a mirror. These colors work with the shade of your lips and it's truly universally flattering for any skin tone. It has low pigment which is great for a subtle look or layer it on for a more intense look. I plan on getting Zip (red) and Cake (nude) soon!


Top to bottom: bare lips, Leo swatched once, Jam swatched once.

Look at how gorgeous Leo is! It looks so natural and will easily be my new everyday shade. 


Boy Brow


Brow Brow – Black Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Beeswax (Cera Alba), Butylene Glycol, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Propylene Glycol Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Isostearic Acid, PVP, Dimethicone, Tromethamine, Oleic Acid, Silica, Polybutene, Lecithin, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Glyceryl Laurate, Sorbitan Lau- rate, Atelocollagen, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Propylene Glycol Laurate, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA May Contain: Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Chromium Hydroxide Green (CI 77289)

Boy Brow was one of my first products I purchased from Glossier. This is my third tube already! I definitely plan on buying more. I've gone through many different brow gels and nothing comes close. Boy Brow lives up to the hype! If you're thinking of buying this, this is your sign. 


I am so proud of this Glossier-esque Boy Brow photo I took. This pomade is a god send. 
It's so light and doesn't make your brows hard or crunchy. I recommend to back comb your brows to make them suepr full and fluffy.


I am loving this everyday wear of the Phase 2 set! Boy Brow, Stretch Concealer, and Generation G in Leo. Nothing else.


If you've never purchased from Glossier before, this kit is a great starter for you. These are such amazing makeup staples if you're looking for quick and easy touch ups or if you're wanting to experiment with makeup for the first time!


Makeup is a choice, make good choices. :)
