Glossier Lash Slick

Glossier suddenly launched a mascara and without hesitation I placed an order. This is the product the beauty community has been waiting for. The ONE thing really missing from their range; They have foundation, concealer, blush, lipsticks, eyeshadows, lip well as an extensive skincare range of cleansers, masks, serums, moisturisers, SPF..the list goes on. You can see my full Glossier Brand overview to see my thoughts on the rest of the collection. Thankfully it doesn't disappoint.

In a sleek but simple pink tube, the mascara looks perfect in my beauty stash and I was due a new mascara anyway. Glossier knows how to create effortless packaging, the type where you know you're not paying half the price tag for the bottle but functional (I've not yet had any of their products leak or break..yet) and at £14, so a bit more than a drugstore but not as expensive as high end, this is an affordable product as long as it works.

And thankfully it does work. In every way you want it to unless you're looking for super volume or spider lashes but really, would you be shopping on the glossier site, a brand famed for its dewy natural looks, if that was the case? Probably not. The brush itself is plastic and as you can see has short bristles making it easier to apply. The formula, which apparently this is the 248th version, contains tiny little fibres designed to cling to your lashes (i know this is true because one tiny fibre ended up on my check).

This lengthens and defines my lashes but doesn't cake and theres no sticky blob on the end of the wand, even after several uses, to annoy me or to accidentally splodge mascara on my eyelid. The formula is meant to be water resistant (I've not been lucky enough to wear it in the rain yet but it is Glasgow and thankfully I've not been upset in the week I've had this either) but doesn't claim to be waterproof. In fact, this comes off easily with a nice gentle cleansers (I mentioned in my Brand Overview post that the Milky Jelly Cleanser isn't good for taking off make up..well now it is) and doesn't transfer either which means my dream of having crisp white towels in the bathroom might now be possible.

Longevity wise, I've had no transfer, smudge or splodge. My eyelids can be greasy but I found this didn't end up under my brows or somewhere on my chin (it happens). For now this is my mascara of choice, although if you know me I'm not the most loyal when it comes to these types of products but I think the before and after shots speak for themselves - forgive my grumpy face/exhausted eyes and wild brows. I am terrible at photos.

  1. Ooh I haven't seen this before, it looks like it would be a good one to use in conjunction with other mascaras to get rid of clumps as well? Great post, I love the simple packaging xx
