    So to help you choose, we've rounded up some of our very favorite Glossier products, and why we love 'em:

    1. Solution is an easy-to-use exfoliant chockfull of promising acids (AHA, BHA, and PHA, oh my!) that reduce acne and dark spots, brighten, improve skin tone and texture, unclog pores, exfoliate, and reduce signs of stress. Like, that's a lot of stuff.

    "My skin is super dry in the winter and I absolutely swear by Thayers Witch Hazel toner — it helps keep my breakouts and redness at bay without drying out my skin any further. However, I have cystic breakouts around my chin area — especially once a month, if you know what I mean — and not even my beloved witch hazel could help with that. SO! I decided to slowly incorporate Glossier’s Solution into my skincare regimen.

    Last week, I was breaking out pretty badly when I decided to use this after washing my face. It comes with a whole pouch full of cotton rounds (#fancy) and I needed just one pump to cover my whole face (paying close attention to my problem areas, including around my chin and near my temples). The next morning, my skin definitely felt a little dry, but my pimples were practically gone. The overnight improvement was dramatic, and none of my spots were an angry shade of red like they usually are. While I think this product is a bit too drying to use every night if you have dry skin, using it twice a week is the perfect dose of 'pimple killer' for me! This is definitely a must-try product to keep breakouts at bay." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Price: $19.20 (originally $24)

    2. Cloud Paint adds a pop of natural-looking color to your cheeks with a gel-cream formula that's ridiculously easy to blend.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed / Kayla Suazo

    "Cloud Paint might be the easiest-to-apply blush of all time. I am (as you can see) incredibly pale, and a lot of blushes get full Haunted Victorian Doll really quick. Two dabs of this and a quick blend, and the natural pink flush is there — and any excess product I just pop on my eyelids for a cute matchy look. It adds some hydrated dimension to an otherwise-matte face of foundation, feels SUPER comfortable on, and lasts (on me at least) all day! There is a little bit of a learning curve when squeeeeezing the product out (it can be easy at first to waste some), but once you're used to it, squeezin's a breeze. The good news is you only need a teeeeensy tad, so the tube lasts (The Sandlot voice) FOR-E-VER! My favorite color combination (as you can PROBABLY tell in this photo) is pink and red. So my spring-and-summer go-to makeup is Cloud Paint in Puff on my lids and cheeks, and my almost-everyday red lip: Tom Ford Lip Color Matte (in Ruby Rush), which is the perfect red lip and which I will repurchase until I die."—Maitland Quitmeyer (hi, that's me on the left)

    "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 (pictured on the right)

    Price: $14.40 (originally $18; available in eight shades)

    3. Boy Brow makes thickening, filling in, and grooming your brows easier than ever — the tinted gel formula and mascara-like wand do it all with just one swipe!

    Anamaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "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-wild 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

    Price: $12.80 (originally $16; available in four shades plus clear)

    4. And Brow Flick, their newer wow-look-at-my brows product. It's a felt-tip pen that dispenses juuuust the right amount of pigment in fine lines to mimic how your hairs actually look.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "I've lived many eyebrow lives until this point: the not-filled in at all, the filled in WAY TOO HARSHLY AND DARK (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 of 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 ON TOP of the 20% sale!). 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

    Price: $14.40 (originally $18; available in three shades)

    5. Invisible Shield is a watergel SPF product for anyone who doesn't want to slather on sunscreen (it never turns greasy!).


    "As a skincare obsessee, I know that a good protection is a protected one. I've always been pretty diligent when it comes to wearing sunscreen to the beach or on vacation, but for year-round, everyday use, adding a lightweight and buildable sunscreen to my daily skincare regiment felt daunting. So when Glossier released their highly-touted Invisible Shield (a daily sunscreen with SPF 35) last summer, I knew I had to give it a try. That purchase was genuinely on of the most fantastic beauty buys I've ever made.

    Invisible shield is so amazing because it essentially functions as both a sunscreen and a primer. It's light, translucent, and smells fresh and slightly fruity, but not in a manner that's overpowering whatsoever. Because it's so light and hydrating, it works rather perfectly under makeup and other post-sunscreen skincare. Though $25 for one fluid ounce of sunscreen may seem pricey, it's decidedly worth it; smoothing on sunscreen every day has never been simpler." —Kyle Davis

    Price: $20 (originally $25)

    6. Priming Moisturizer Rich provides a thick, but not greasy, dose of moisture, and is packed with ceramides to lock in hydration. Bonus: you'll feel ~luxe~ when you put it on!

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "My skin gets pretty damn dry in the winter, meaning I need to put on a crap ton of moisturizer on my face...both morning and night. But here’s the problem, my friends: Most heavier creams make my skin initially oily, and putting ‘em on in the morning means looking like a greaseball all day. But have no fear, because Glossier’s Priming Moisturizer Rich is here! (Well, it has been for quite a while, but I’m just trying it now.)

    First thought: The smell is very pleasant, almost like a subtle lavender. Second thought: It absorbs into my skin SUPER quickly. Within minutes, my skin feels super moisturized, but there’s no greasy film enjoying itself on my T-zone. AND! It calms down the redness around my nose and cheeks and leaves a smooth, dewy canvas that lets makeup glide on and blend in with ease. Plus, I’ve noticed that my concealer stays on significantly longer when I use this, which, to be honest, is nothing short of a Christmas miracle because my makeup NEVER lasts.

    And while the container itself looks really small, I’ve been using this moisturizer since early October and am only just seeing the bottom of it now. I definitely recommend this for people who have sensitive, dry-to-normal skin!" —AnaMaria Glavan

    Price: $35

    7. Lip Gloss makes your lips *pop* with the cushiony, juicy-shiny finish aaaand provides comfortable hydration with its vitamin E and jojoba oil-infused formula.

    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

    Price: $11.20 (originally $14; available in three shades, plus clear)

    8. Generation G is the low-maintenance matte lip tint you need for those days you want a pop of color but don't really want to put any effort 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

    "If you know me at all, you know that I am a lipstick (mostly a red lipstick) obsessed person. And as someone who is 1 very pale and 2. wears red lipstick usually at least five days a week, when I *don't* wear it, I feel totally washed out. So I'm always looking for a tinted lip item that has a true my-lips-but-better color — and doesn't dry out my lips like my other 'nude' lipsticks tend to do. Enter Generation G in Crush, which has quickly become my go-to for 'no-makeup makeup' looks or when I'm wearing a color (like lavender) that (IMO) just doesn't go with red lipstick as well. You might know that this is a reformulation of Glossier's original Generation G — which I did really love (I had Jam in the old formula!). BUT let me tell you, this is really a new and improved version. The old formula had to be applied a little more carefully, as it tended to bunch up/look splotchy on the lips. This new formula? I can swipe it on without even looking in the mirror and know it looks good. It's a truly *effortless* lip color option you can wear year-round with confidence. It's moisturizing but not sticky, so I also feel like it's great for giving my tired lips a break from the matte stuff day after day. Oh, and it has a lovely (but not overpowering) floral smell that just makes it a treat to reapply." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Price: $14.40 (originally $18, available in six shades)

    9. *AND* to complete the lip trifecta, Ultralip (Glossier's newest lip prouduct) has the same weightless comfort of Generation G, plus a hint of shine and buildable coverage for the perfect everyday look. Glossier calls it the "cashmere sweatpants of lipstick" and...yes!

    BuzzFeed / Maitland, Glossier

    "Altho I am a matte lipstick enthusiast, I've enjoyed the recent gloss resurgence as a nice break! So when Glossier released their newest lip product, Ultralip, which combines the comfort of a balm, the buildable color of a tint, and the fine of a gloss, I haven't been able to stop wearing them. If you've been looking for sheer-tinted, hydrating, *comfortable* lip colors to perk up your face but also go with...lots of loungewear, these new Glossier lip colors are the ticket. They feel weightless (even comfier than Generation G??) and provide a flush of buildable color — and a bit of shine — that looks fresh. I have three shades (a reddish, a pinkish, and a berryish) and they're all gorgeously wearable dressed up or down." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Price: $14.40 (originally $18; available in nine shades)

    10. Skin Tint offers lightweight but buildable coverage with a dewy, evened-out finish that still looks like ~your skin~.

    Nusrat Sultana / BuzzFeed

    "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

    Price: $20.80 (originally $26; available in 12 shades)

    11. Lidstar (Glossier's liquid eyeshadows) impart just enough sparkle for a subtle glow and wash of color to put the ~lid~ on a gorgeously low-key makeup look. And they blend using just your fingertips in literal *seconds*.

    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

    I ALSO love Lidstar, and use the dark bronze shade allllll the time to add just a bit of extra depth (and a hint of sparkle) for an effortless but stepped-up everyday look. They blend *so* easily.

    Price: $14.40 (originally $18; available in eight shades)

    12. Monochromes eyeshadow palettes each have three pans of the same shade in three different finishes (matte, satin, and metallic) for a gorgeous...well..monochrome eye look that says ~fashion~ with not a lot of effort.

    Glossier, BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "I love a single-color eye look – as a non-eye-makeup expert, it makes it easy to make sure the colors and blending look seamless. So I think these new palettes are just GENIUS. So far I've worn the gold and mauvey pink shades, and they are super easy to apply and blend, and pop a pigmented punch without looking over the top too quickly. I apply the metallic shade right on my lower lid, and the subtly sparkly satin shade above to blend out. Aaaaand done! If you're not a fan of liquid shadows like Lidstar but want something equally easy, these are just about perfect. Plus you can buy refills instead of getting a whole new one when you run out!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Price: $17.60 (originally $22; available in 10 shades).

    13. Glossier You is a great option if you're not a fan of overly sweet or floral scents. This spicy-woodsy smell lasts all day but is never overpowering — it just smells like you, but even better.

    The pink bottle with red lid

    "I love 'clean,' lightly floral smelling perfumes best — just like a really nice soap. Glossier's You is veeery different from all the other fragrances in my collection, but I find myself reaching for it all the time. It's a neutral-but-not-netural scent that's perfect for day and into night. It just makes me feel ~cooler~ than I am, and the thousands of reviews (including from people who don't like most perfumes!) make it clear that this is a great universal scent." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Price: $48 (originally $60

    14. Stretch Concealer says "bye bye!" to caking and lives up to its name, stretching and moving with your skin to cover up anything you'd like to (from dark circles to pimples).

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "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

    Price: $14.40 (originally $18; available in 12 shades)
