Glossier's Lash Slick Stayed On Even When I Forgot To Wash My Makeup Off And I'm Shook

It's the brand's first mascara and everyone's talking about it.

When Glossier told the world they were coming out with a mascara, everyone lost their minds. Well, everyone except for me.

It's not that I don't like Glossier, I just honestly have never used any of their products enough to be a stan. Sure, there was one time I put Boy Brow on my brows and for a second was felling myself, but other than that, I honestly couldn't understand what the hype was about.

So what better way of diving into the fandom of the brand than by trying out a new mascara and seeing how it does? First, let's go over some basics about the Lash Slick, which you can get from Glossier for $16:

According to Glossier's IG stories, this mascara was going to lengthen lashes, wear all day, lift and define the lashes, and come off with warm water. Noted.

Obviously, I needed to understand the type of mascara wand that promises to fan, lift, and slick my lashes without clumping. So, I continued watching their IG stories.

Okay, seems simple enough. Now came the actual test, but I couldn't do it alone. I called on two others to try Lash Slick with me, and here are the results:

"It definitely made my lashes look longer, and surprisingly enough, I did not wake up with raccoon eyes."

As someone with pretty much non-existent eyelashes, I really wanted to see if the mascara would lengthen them to the point of spidery-goodness. I feel like I sort of knew not to expect a lot of drama, so I kept an open mind.

I did, in fact, notice my lashes were longer and a bit more noticeable. I didn't notice any clumping, and because of the fine bristles on the brush, I was able to really get to the root and give my lashes that extra curl! If I were someone who was just a get up, quick "natural" makeup, and go, then I could definitely understand the hype. And as someone who has severe allergies (hello under-eye bags), it was also assuring to see that this mascara didn't irritate my skin. Oh, and completely unrelated-yet-related: The day I tried this, I forgot to wash my face when I went to bed. I woke up the next morning, surprisingly to those darn lashes still in place, not a smudge in sight.

I'm definitely one who needs more volume and drama, but this mascara impressed me, and that's a pretty hard thing to do. I'd wear it again!

"Lash Slick is like putting black leggings on your eyelashes: You get the curvy shape you want, it goes with everything, and it's so comfortable."

As a beauty editor, I'm getting hundreds if not thousands of new products on my desk each year. (I know that sounds like a humble brag, but stay with me here.) While I test as many as possible, it is a damn feat when a new product is awarded a spot in my makeup bag for every day use. When I tried Glossier Lash Slick mascara last week, that little tube made my makeup bag a little fatter. Lash Slick is like putting black leggings on your eyelashes: You get the curvy shape you want, it goes with everything, and it's so comfortable you can wear it constantly without needing to adjust or check yourself. I don't know how these goddamn magicians did it, but the formula makes it so that your lashes are lengthened, darkened, and separated without actually looking like you're wearing anything. On top of that, it's water-resistant, so I have yet to deal with any smudging that gives me fake-ass dark circles. I only have two issues, both of which are personal preferences, so listen up: Like I said, it's water-resistant, which means it's a little harder to remove than a regular ol' mascara. My other issue is that I usually like my lashes to be more dramatic and Lash Slick is more about that ~au naturale~ look. But TBQH, I love the formula so much that I've kind of changed my preferences and I've become more of a natural woman because of this stuff. Ugh, Glossier, you've done it again.— Augusta Falletta

"It gave my lashes added drama and volume without clumping at all."

I've been a longtime fan of the Glossier brand. Some of my favorite products from Glossier include Boy Brow and Haloscope. What I love most about Glossier is how natural the products look in my makeup routine — it's almost like I'm not wearing anything at all.

I was thrilled when I first heard about Lash Slick since it would be the first mascara to come out from Glossier. Mascara is an essential part of my daily makeup routine, and I value a product that can give my lashes length and volume. What I love about Lash Slick is that it's still true to the natural approach of all their other products. It also gives my lashes added drama and volume without clumping at all. My lashes looked as if I had falsies on, but in reality it was just Lash Slick. I love this product and can't wait to make it a key part of my makeup routine. 10/10!

So in conclusion, Lash Slick may just be worth the hype. And for only $16, it's more expensive than drugstore, but it's an an inexpensive alternative to those pricier designer alternatives. Because who has the funds for all that?!

While it hasn't converted me into a believer, I do believe the "natural lash" look could be a thing. Maybe.
