Glossier isn’t just a beauty brand, it’s a lifestyle. And an empire. And so much more. Since the brand started in 2014 with just four products, Glossier has become one of the biggest names in beauty - with people everywhere praising their commitment to natural beauty, minimalism, and putting skincare and wellness first. Glossier’s mantra is “Skin first. Makeup Second,” and it definitely shows.
“Glossier Boy Brow” and “Glossier Cloud Paint” are names that come up in tons of beauty conversations, as they’re cult products that focus on enhancing your natural features rather than transforming them with contour or falsies. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! From the millennial pink packaging to the countless celebrities, MUA’s, influencers, and millennials (including founder Emily Weiss!) who can’t stop talking about the most game-changing Glossier products, the $1.2 billion brand has had an undeniable impact on the beauty world and changed the “no makeup” makeup routine forever.
In the years since Glossier was launched, the brand has gone from just four products to several dozen. And most of them you’ve probably heard of… Glossier Boy Brow, anyone? But as with any brand, some Glossier products are better than others, and it’s definitely okay to play favorites when trying to find your ideal minimalist makeup routine.
From highlights to serums to makeup products, here are the top Glossier products that you need in your beauty routine.
We can’t talk about the top Glossier products without mentioning the brand’s best selling product of all time: Boy Brow. Upon launching in 2015, this brow gel developed a waitlist of 10,000+ people and celebrity fans like Beyonce, who even wore the shade at the 2018 Grammys. Why is Boy Brow so popular? Because it’s the ideal everyday product that’s beloved by world-renowned MUA’s and beauty beginners alike, making everybody feel put-together and on their best brow game. This brushable, creamy wax gives you impeccable arches that look completely natural, yet perfectly precise - courtesy of a tiny brush that distributes minimal product on the brow and lets you build up color. It also adds natural volume and fluffiness to your arches regardless of the makeup look you’re creating. If the approval of Beyonce herself wasn’t enough, just know that 93% of MIRA BEAUTY reviews say that Glossier Boy Brow is volumizing and 98% love how long lasting it is.
“Great for a natural flush of color. Also has colors catered for deeper skin. I have it in Dawn (a burnt orange) and Storm (a dark plum).” Glossier Cloud Paint is a name that most beauty junkies have heard a few times - whether it’s from your co-worker whose natural glow you can’t stop admiring, or all the makeup and lifestyle accounts on Instagram that can’t get enough of this cult Glossier product. And they all know what’s up, because Cloud Paint is simply dreamy. This gel-cream blush feels soft and pillowy from the moment it touches your skin, and you can use your fingers to tap and blend for a smooth, lit-from-within radiance. Think about the natural flush you get after hot yoga or a really good facial… because that’s just what you can expect with this minimalist makeup must-have. Available in six shades inspired by NYC sunsets, Glossier Cloud Paint made its debut at the Oscars in 2017 when the brand commissioned celebrities like Chrissy Teigen, Allison Williams, and Rashida Jones to wear it on the red carpet. As you can imagine, it was Glossier Cloud Paint that stole the show, and the product’s popularity has only increased over the years.
Your lip gloss is always poppin’, but it’s about to get even more fun and flirty with Glossier Lip Gloss. This high-shine formula feels comfortable on your lips, and leaves a long-lasting, glassy finish in just one swipe. And it has a doe-foot applicator, which we know makes every makeup junkie all warm and fuzzy (pun intended) inside. Lip Gloss is available in three shades: “Clear for a transparent crystal finish, Holographic for an opalescent shimmer, and Red for a subtle, sheer tint,” according to Glossier. Each one delivers striking color while nourishing your lips with Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil, and 98% of MIRA guests say Lip Gloss is ultra-hydrating. Collect all three shades of Glossier Lip Gloss for your best minimalist makeup looks that guarantee you’ll never lose your sparkle.
Who doesn’t love serums? Especially when they promise (and deliver) skin-transforming results in just four weeks. Only from Glossier. Super Pure is a lightweight, nourishing serum that’s formulated with 5% Niacinamide and Zinc. What does Niacinamide do for your skin? Besides just balancing tone and texture, this ingredient also has anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and oil-reducing abilities to put all skin issues behind you and unveil your most Super Pure complexion. Zinc works alongside Niacinamide to care for congested pores and keep the breakouts away, without the dreaded dryness that often accompanies acne products. As with any Glossier product, this serum puts your skin and wellness first… with top ratings on MIRA for being gentle, hydrating, pore minimizing, and redness reducing.
“This product is the best lip balm I’ve tried. It’s so creamy, and super amazingly moisturizing for chapped lips. It’s perfect for any look, and depending how much you put on it either looks like a gloss, or just a balm. Both of which I love.” Glossier products and minimalist makeup often go hand in hand (or in this case, lip in lip,) and we love it that way. Cult products like Balm Dotcom make a major difference when you want to look simple and cute, but still like yourself… and this lip balm should be the first thing you reach for when stocking up on Glossier. Balm Dotcom is packed with antioxidants and natural emollients to hydrate and nourish dry, chapped lips, and it’s available in seven flavors like Birthday and Coconut to add flair to your minimalist makeup effects. Nourishing ingredients like Castor Oil, Beeswax, and Lanolin will always leave your lips feeling hydrated, and you can wear this product alone or underneath a Glossier lip gloss for a taste (literally) of subtle beauty.
It may seem like there are countless types of face makeup to choose from these days, because there are. Foundation, BB cream, tinted moisturizer, face powder - each is unique and beautiful in their own way, but we’re personally big fans of skin tint. Glossier’s tagline for their Perfecting Skin Tint is “more skin, less makeup,” and that pretty much sums it up. This breathable and barely-there formula is the best compromise between a bare face and full makeup, providing you with a simple wash of color that evens out complexion and produces a smooth, dewy finish. Perfecting Skin Tint is infused with Diamond Powder to minimize the look of pores and create a brightening effect, and it’s the ideal solution for the days you want your skin to look pretty, put-together, and like you didn’t just roll out of bed 10 minutes ago, even if you did. Perfecting Skin Tint is the ideal Glossier product that embodies everything the brand is about, enhancing your natural features and owning what you have with minimalist makeup.
Believe it or not, there is a way to fit voluminous lashes into your minimalist makeup looks. You don’t need falsies or the most thickening mascara you can find, either… just a touch of color from one of the top Glossier products: Lash Slick. Released in 2018, this simple black mascara has micro fibers that coat your lashes from root to tip, without clumping, smudging, or running. It’s extremely buildable, letting you apply only one or two coats for a simple but noticeable lash enhancement, or going even further when you want to take your makeup to a more glam level. No matter how many coats you apply or what type of effect you’re going for... your lashes will always be long, luxurious, and 100% natural. Pair with your Glossier Lip Gloss or Glossier Cloud Paint to really own the minimalist makeup look!
“Love this concealer! So natural but yet I can build it up for more coverage. It blends so nice and gives your under eyes a nice healthy bright glow.” Really, why are there not more concealers that add a literal burst of brightness to your eyes? Glossier doesn’t know either, which is why the brand released their beloved Stretch Concealer in 2019. Glossier products are always a serious flex, but this one takes it to the extreme… with flexible coverage that stretches across your under eye area to provide buildable coverage and reduce the appearance of dark circles, redness, and blemishes. This concealer features elastic micro waxes that move with your skin instead of pulling, tugging, or creating the cakey effect that tons of concealers do, and the mineral pigments generate a brightening effect that fits in with your minimal makeup. According to 96% of MIRA guests, this concealer feels smooth on your under eyes and has buildable, lightweight coverage.
Black eyeliner is a beauty staple that everybody needs in their collection, and not all of them are created equal. One thing that stands out about the Pro Tip Brush Point Liquid Eyeliner by Glossier? There are tons of reviews about how long-lasting this liner is, with the precise lines lasting people through everything from school dances under the hot lights to hours of crying. Concerning? A little. But also oddly comforting? Definitely. Glide over your lids with ease as this pigmented, buildable formula forms a variety of liner looks, courtesy of a brush tip with flexible fibers that won’t cling to your delicate eyelid skin. From cat eyes to the ultimate lazy girl hack of applying liner only on your upper lid, you’ll always be covered with this makeup essential. Pro tip: it pairs beautifully with Glossier Boy Brow!
“I adore this product! I have the shade Quartz and it brightens my skin instantly, giving me a dewy glow that I feel I'd often lose quickly after applying bb cream.” Just like Glossier Boy Brow and Glossier Cloud Paint, this cult favorite is a simplistic take on a traditionally more glam beauty effect. You can wear highlighter and glow all out with your minimal makeup looks, and this sparkly stick will take you there. Haloscope is formulated with crystal extracts for a shimmery effect that’s not too glittery, and the stick is made with vitamin-rich moisturizers for a dewy glow that won’t dry out your skin. To be more specific, the inside is “an oil core made with coconut, castor seed, and sweet almond oils that, when applied to skin, bestow just the right amount of natural glaze and good-for-you hydration at the same time,” as Emily Weiss wrote on Into the Gloss in 2016. Sounds good to us! Haloscope is a highlighter stick that glides beautifully across your face and creates a dewy and dreamy complexion - no makeup brush required and no powder fallout in sight.
Yes, you read that correctly: eye and lip plumping cream. While wanting fuller lips isn’t exactly a revelation in the beauty community, not as many are aware of the importance of caring for your eye area. Dullness and faint lines in this part of your face make you look instantly older, and wrinkles come more easily due to the delicate eye skin. Ugh. But as usual, Glossier products are here to deliver a lot of beauty with a side of wellness. Bubblewrap is formulated with natural hydrators like Hyaluronic Acid, Squalane, Avocado Oil, and antioxidant-rich Blueberry Extract to make your eyes and lips appear smooth and fresh. The lightweight formula won’t feel sticky on your skin, and provides a brightness and volume boost in the areas where you need it the most. 93% of our community loves how smooth it feels on fragile skin, and 89% say this Glossier product is super long lasting!
Glossier products are a must for any minimalist makeup routine. Find all your favorites here on MIRA!
