    1. Boy Brow keeps your brows in place while subtly filling them in, immediately giving your ensemble an air of ~I am put together can’t you see my brows look good~. The best part? It's so easy. No expert drawing skills required (unlike your regular brow pencil).

    "The precision that is required to literally draw in an eyebrow is a feat of Da Vinci proportions — and no, I’m not being overdramatic. I have tried to use pencil brow liners and it looked like a three-year-old went crayola-crazy on my face. But dilemma time: when I put on my foundation, I feel like my eyebrows blend into my skin. So what should a girl who cannot color inside the lines of her brows do?
    Here’s what I needed: an eyebrow filler that would very lightly enhance my eyebrows (I prefer a natural-looking makeup routine), act like gel for all the unruly hairs that live above my eyes, and have a brusher application that would make the ordeal an easy one. No pencils.


    Step in Boy Brow, a cult-favorite that is loved by everyone and their Insta-famous mothers. But believe the hype: this magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does what exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better." —AnaMaria Glavan

    2. Milky Jelly Cleanser because you'd love to double cleanse, but you lack the energy. That's okay! This gentle-but-effective cleanser will literally ~melt~ makeup, oil, and gunk off your face — just add a few pumps to wet skin, cue mini facial massage, rinse, pat dry, and go to sleep. Only about .5 seconds have passed.

    "I have extremely sensitive skin and during the fall of 2019 experienced full face breakouts after having impetigo on my chin and finding out I have PCOS. I started taking birth control to clear up my skin and it helped a lot, but the side effects I experienced for the couple months I was on it were not-so-fun to put it mildly.
    Right when I got off birth control, I was warned by a few doctors that there was a good chance my acne would come back in full force. As someone who had very little knowledge (or interest) in skin care, I wanted to create an easy daily routine for myself and I knew that started with finding a good face wash. I've always been a Cetaphil girl, but I had heard so many wonderful things about this Glossier cleanser that I decided to take the plunge and try it out.
    I would best describe it Cetaphil's tough on the outside, but a softie inside twin. Meaning it does a better job when it comes to cleansing your face after wearing makeup or getting super sweaty (thanks to that contact lens solution being a powerful cleaning agent), but is just as gentle on the skin as Cetaphil.
    Full disclaimer: I don't just use facial cleanser. My lineup of products in my skincare routine also include a Niacinamide serum, moisturizer, SPF 50, Curology, a retinoid cream, and acne patches to treat occasional zits, HOWEVER, this cleanser has absolutely played an integral role in helping to keep my skin clear since I stopped taking birth control a year ago and I absolutely love it. It's so important to cleanse your face morning and night regardless if you wear makeup or not, so do yourself and your skin a favor and buy this amazing stuff!" —Samantha Wieder

    3. Skin Tint is known for having a breathable formula that blurs pores and lightly covers redness without feeling feeling like your typical foundation — in other words, this doesn't feel like you're wearing a layer of product. In fact, it feels like nothing at all.

    "I tried the Glossier Skin Tint in shade G6. My skin is combination, veering on oily, and I was pleasantly surprised by this! It feels extremely lightweight on my skin to the point where it feels like I'm even wearing anything, so I think it's a perfect go-to for work and everyday makeup. Also, I love that I can just pat it on with my hands and be done in two minutes. It melts so easily into the skin! No tools needed. I'm on board, guys. And with my combo-oily skin, I've embraced the dewy look instead of fighting against it, and I love that with this, my face doesn't look matte or dry: it looks dewy and bright, and I look more awake." —Nusrat Sultana

    4. Lash Slick provides the *look* of lash extensions without, well, the hassle of actual extensions. It lengthens and volumizes with a water-resistant — which means it won't create the dreaded panda eye effect during the day, but won't require vigorous scrubbing at night.

    BuzzFeed / AnaMaria

    "If you’ve ever wanted lash extensions but didn’t want the hassle associated with them, you will fall unconditionally and irrevocably in love with the Glossier Lash Slick. (That’s a Twilight reference, don’t h8.) I admit that I didn’t think I would like it — I’m not an eyeliner gal (I lack the patience required) and rely heavily on blush and mascara to make me look half awake, so I usually prefer formulas that add a crap ton of drama.

    But this! This is so surprisingly good! It doesn’t flake, doesn’t clump, lengthens a ton, and looks *extremely* natural. It’s also incredibly easy to remove! My regular face wash is able to take off every last speck, no intense rubbing required. It’s also very buildable, so I can add on multiple swipes to give my look some extra oomph if I wanted to… and it still doesn’t look clumpy or smudge. I’ve stopped wearing mascara every day due to ::looks around:: these times, but this is my holy grail eye product and will eventually become my ~wear this every single day~ mascara once I get back to the office." —AnaMaria Glavan

    5. Cloud Paint carries eight gorgeous shades, from sunny corals to brownish nudes. Blush is tricky because just one swipe can result in an unnaturally Barbie pink cheek, which is where this gel-cream formula shines: it’s got a buildable formula that allows you to manipulate the color to be as subtle or as prominent as you want.

    "There’s a very special feeling that comes with finding a high-quality, long-lasting, and effective makeup product. And as someone who *loves* makeup and tries something new weekly, that feeling has become few and far between — untiiiiil I got my hands on Glossier’s Cloud Paint blush. It’s a gel-cream blush that not only delivers incredible hydration to my cheeks, but some gorgeous, natural-looking color.

    I’ve been using the color ‘Dusk’ (a brownish nude) and it leaves behind the most flattering pinkish tint to my cheeks while still looking natural. And because of its super lightweight formula, it’s easy to build from a soft flush to a stronger contoured look. This is one of those products that’s easy to use but packs a serious punch to your makeup, and basically what I am saying here is, this stuff is going to be a forever staple in my makeup bag. —Kayla Suazo

    6. Brow Flick is a brush-tip detailing pen that makes filling in sparse brows a summer breeze. The smudge-proof formula is sheer but buildable, here to help you create a natural (or dramatic) look depending on your preference.

    "I've lived many eyebrow lives until this point: the not-filled in at all, the filled in WAY TOO HARSHLY AND DARK (major regret), and most recently, the 'just a few sweeps of brow mascara.' But when Glossier launched their newest eyebrow wonder, the Brow Flick, I really wanted to try it and see if it filled in my brows a little more than just gel does, without looking tooooooooo over-the-top. My perfect face of makeup is a heavy-ish brow, mascara, and a red lip, but finding the right balance for your forehead caterpillars can be a major challenge. I have bushy-ish brows, but the front of them (closest to my nose) is a very sparse swirl, making it look like my brows don't even start where they should.


    Tl;dr: I LOVE this pen! It's really easy to apply in short, hair-like strokes, and the fluid doesn't come pouring out quickly so you don't make mistakes. I like a dramatic brow look (as you can see lol), but you can defs do a more natural one! Thanks to the really fine tip and not-too-inky formula, it's VERY easy to build up! Just a few quick strokes (easier and more natural looking than a brow pencil, I found), a couple brushes with your favorite brow gel (Boy Brow is great, and Glossier sells Boy Brow and Brow Flick in a set, saving you four bucks!). I also realized I really needed to pluck my brows after taking this photo for you guys, so it's a win-win!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    7. Generation G has a buildable formula to a) give your pout a blotted finish or b) a bold color ready for a night out on the town. Love lipstick but hate putting it on? That's where this easy-to-apply product comes in.

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "Glossier's new sheer matte lipstick seems like a total contradiction — sheer? and matte? at the same time? But it totally works. It's got a kind of waxy consistency that's a little harder than most other lip products. It kind of reminds me of a floral scented crayon. The color is nice and subtle, so it lets you build to whatever vibrancy you're going for. I personally like to do two coats for an almost natural look. It's not great for dry or chapped lips, but I would say it's a lot more forgiving than other lipsticks, so you don't have to worry about it smearing or getting on your teeth or transferring to whoever you're smooching. I got the jam color and the name is definitely not helping my strong urge to take a huge bite out of it. 10/10, would eat." —Rebecca O'Connell

    8. Stretch Concealer tackles dark circles and blemishes without looking too obvious. It's *the* perfect thing to slap on when you don't want a full face of makeup, but also did not get enough sleep last night and want the world to think you did.

    "I usually stick to tinted moisturizer on the daily, which can be an issue because I get pretty terrible dark circles — I find that only thick, heavy concealer does the job when it comes to making me look as if I actually slept last night. The downside of that is, for quick errands or days when I plan on wearing no makeup at all, concealer is so darn obvious...which is where Stretch Concealer steps in! The formula is lightweight (the case with most Glossier products) but truly blurs dark circles and redness (my nose is always an issue) with just a few taps and instantly delivers a brightening effect. See above for before and after!" —AnaMaria Glavan

    9. Lidstar creates a shimmery work of art on your eyes with just a quick swipe and no fancy brushes or steady hands required. Plus, it's crease-resistant, lasts for hours, and comes off très easily.

    Glossier, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    "I’ve been intimidated by makeup for far too long, and I often felt like makeup would dry out my skin and take away from the cleanser and moisturizer I put on each morning. But Lidstar is the Tinder of the makeup world; all you have to do is swipe right to get it on. I absolutely love the ease of this product, the time it saves, and the glowing look it gives my eyelids. This stuff goes on in the blink of an eye and looks fantastic every time I blink. It stays on all day, comes off easily when washed, and is absolutely a product I’ll wear every time I want to shine." —Mallory Mower

    10. Lip Gloss is packed with vitamin e and jojoba oil for maximum shine and moisture, but thankfully *none* of the typical stickiness (#ew) that comes along with most glosses.

    Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    "I hate any product that makes my lips feel sticky or goopy, so lip glosses have been mostly off limits since I was a kid and I had those awful fruit-flavored roll-on lip glosses. I made an exception when Pat McGrath released her lip glosses because damn her Instagram videos convinced me I NEEDED one, but they unfortunately have been gathering dust in my makeup bag.


    Fast forward to today and I was again convinced by slick Instagram advertising that I NEEDED Glossier’s Lip Gloss. I actually really ended up liking this product; it’s nice and thick without making my lips feel like I’ve got bits of bubblegum stuck to them every time I open my mouth. It isn’t a product that I would wear everyday, but it would look nice at a fancy event either on its own or layered over another product. Of course, you have to play Lil’ Mama’s Lip Gloss while applying it. (I don’t make the rules!)" —Melanie Aman

    We hope you love this new tool as much as we do! And of course, if you're looking for product recs — from cleaning supplies to things for a pet snake — mosey on over to BuzzFeed Shopping.
