Glossier Boy Brow for red hair

Glossier UK: The best Glossier products from across its makeup and skincare range

17th September 2020 | Author: Katie Lynch

Update: Glossier has just upped the game with the launch of its first Boy Brow product for people with red hair.

Like the rest of the Boy Brow range, Boy Brow Auburn provides a light tint to brows and locks hairs into place, making them looking fluffier and fuller.  You can read more about why we love the Boy Brow so much in our list of the best Glossier products below.

It costs £24 so is far from cheap, but a little goes a long way and it’s a tad easier to use then regular pomade.

Buy Boy Brow from Glossier

These days it feels like every other brand that arrives on the market has a soft pastel aesthetic and Instagram-friendly packaging, but Glossier is one brand that deserves its hype.

Its products are practically fool-proof; perfect for everyday wear when you don’t want to feel like you’re wearing a mask, and they’re relatively good value for money given their high quality.

With products available for every need and skin type, we’ve compiled a list of ten tried and tested skincare and makeup products from Glossier that we believe will be staples in your collection.

The downside to the brand is that while Glossier is available to buy in the UK, you currently have to get it shipped from the US. This means it can take more than two weeks to arrive so if you’re keen to give these a go soon, order quickly!

The best Glossier products: Makeup

A number of the best Glossier products appear in our Best Buys lists – namely the Stretch Concealer in our best concealer list as well as in our best makeup sets guide alongside the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint.

Elsewhere, its Glossier Futuredew primer makes our best primer list and its Glossier Cloud Paint is one of the best blusher around. We’ve detailed more about these, and a number of Glossier’s other makeup staples below.

Glossier Cloud Paint

£15 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: Glossier’s cult Cloud Paint has left our powder blushes sad and neglected at the back of our makeup collections, and for good reason.

It provides the perfect sheer wash of colour on the cheeks if that’s your vibe, but is also buildable if you prefer a more intense glow.

Its lightweight formula blends perfectly onto either clean skin, over liquid foundation, and even powder, giving an air of natural glow.

Available in six natural shades, inspired by NYC sunsets, this blusher is perfect for any skin tone – we especially love Puff for a bright yet natural flush.

How to use: Apply a tiny bit at a time either with the fingertips or a stippling brush and gently buff in. Can be applied before or after powder products.

Stretch Concealer

£15 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: Whilst the Stretch Concealer won’t cover more aggressive breakouts or get rid of dark circles, it is the perfect natural corrector to conceal minor flaws without caking.

Practically undetectable on the skin, the Stretch Concealer leaves a glowy finish that can be used on bare skin or over a light foundation for extra coverage. It comes in twelve shades covering a broad spectrum of skin tones, although we admit this could be higher.

How to use: We like to apply the Stretch Concealer with our fingertips and the natural warmth of our hands provides a seamless blend.

Glossier Boy Brow

£24 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: Boy Brow provides a light tint to brows and locks hairs into place, giving them an instantly fluffy appearance.

Its tiny brush makes Boy Brow effortless to apply and the creamy formula is almost invisible and doesn’t leave a crunchy residue that flakes off during the day.

With oleic acid, lecithin and atelocollagen, this product also works to moisturise brows, assisting with growth. It is available in four natural shades – following the latest addition of Boy Brow Auburn – as well as clear formula.

How to use: We like to brush on Boy Brow before using any other products to set the brows into place. Once they are set, you can see where any gaps are and can fill them in using your brow product of choice for a natural look that doesn’t appear over-drawn.

Glossier mascara: Lash Slick

£14 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: While we all love long, thick lashes, heavy-duty mascaras can be irritating for everyday wear. Not to mention clumpy.

Glossier’s Lash Slick is the best mascara to be worn daily, providing lengthening without clumping.

Its formula is water-resistant, rather than waterproof, so it won’t run during the day, and this means an accidental rub of the eye won’t end in a makeup disaster.

And while you can’t go swimming wearing Lash Slick, the plus is that it’s not impossible to remove at the end of the day.

The formula is gentle on the eyes, making it perfect if you wear contact lenses or spend a lot of your day looking at a screen.

Perfecting Skin Tint

£15 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: The Perfecting Skin Tint provides natural coverage and a wash of colour that conceals redness without covering your skin.

The sheer formula won’t hide your freckles (not that they should be hidden anyway!), but it will brighten the natural appearance of your skin.

It also contains diamond powder which is said to be behind the fact this CC cream/foundation provides a soft-focus effect, minimising the appearance of pores. Meanwhile, glycerine works to provide gentle moisture throughout the day.

Perfecting Skin Tint comes in twelve shades to match the Stretch Concealer, so they blend together to improve the appearance of your natural skin.

How to use: We like to apply this product either with fingertips or a stippling brush for quick, easy to apply coverage for daily wear.

The best Glossier products: Skincare

Glossier doesn’t just sell makeup. It’s also got a great line of Glossier skin care.

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser

£15 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: This creamy cleanser works to gently break down makeup, dirt and pollution, leaving your face feeling soft and clean.

Its gel formula is soap-free, so it won’t leave your skin feeling tight like gel foaming cleansers often do, and this makes it suitable for all skin types, even if you’re dry.

It’s made from the same cleansing agents that you can find in contact lens solution, making it gentle for use on the eyes and effective at removing even stubborn mascara.

How to use: We recommend using this product alone in the morning or after an oil-based makeup remover or cleanser in the evening to remove any residue of makeup, dirt or pollution.

Glossier lip balm: Balm Dot Com

£10 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: One of Glossier’s most simple yet effective products, the Balm Dot Com is the perfect handbag-sized all-rounder that you won’t be able to live without.

Opt for one of the tinted flavour options such as cherry for a light wash of colour on the lips, or choose the original flavour for a fragrance-free alternative that doubles as a body cream.

Natural heavy-duty moisturisers including castor oil, beeswax and lanolin work to soften even the toughest of skin, making this product perfect for even dry elbows and cracked cuticles.

Glossier Solution

£19 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: Glossier’s Solution is the brand’s offering to provide gentle chemical exfoliation without irritation, improving the appearance of skin texture and improving radiance.

It contains AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) and PHAs (poly hydroxy acids) which work to clear dirt and excess oils from both the surface of your skin, and deeper into your pores, working to reduce blemishes and blackheads and soothe redness.

Its gentle formula makes it suitable for even dry skin, although we don’t recommend using chemical exfoliants if you suffer from any skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema.

How to use: Use Solution once every other evening either with your fingertips or on a cotton pad. Make sure to use SPF in the morning!

Super Bounce serum contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 to hydrate every layer of the skin without leaving the skin sticky, making it perfect for under makeup.

Priming Moisturiser Rich

£29 | Buy now from Glossier

Why we love it: Don’t let the “rich” in the name put you off – this Priming Moisturiser is perfect for even oily skin, melting instantly into the skin to provide intense hydration. Ceramides and fatty acids work to restore your skin’s natural moisture and gives long-lasting results.

The Priming Moisturiser Rich also contains an Anti-Redness Complex to combat irritation and redness, as well as an Oxygenating Agent that improves the texture of the skin. You can read more about how moisturiser works in our science of moisturiser guide. 

How to use:  We love using this product as a base for makeup to soothe and moisturise the skin, but it also works perfectly to provide intense hydration overnight when applied in the evening. Use after cleansing and applying any thinner-consistency serums or oils.
