A couple weeks ago I ordered these two products from Glossier – The Stretch Concealer & the Perfecting Skin Tint, I had a lot of gals on Instagram ask me to keep them updated on what I thought of the products, so here is what I think….
I love the concealer, It does exactly as promised. The idea for this concealer is that it stretches with your face avoiding the classic cracked concealer look. I went with light because I wanted to use it to brighten my under eyes (which 3 babies in 3 years have turned completely purple), but medium would have probably also worked well with my skin tone. I also use it to even out the skin tone around my nose.
Perfecting Skin Tint
This again is what it says it is. It’s not a foundation, and doesn’t give much coverage. It more just tints & evens skin tone. I use bronzer so I like to have something underneath for it to set into, this works for that. I think I’ll use it more in the warmer months when I’m tanned and don’t want much coverage. But for the winter months I have been mixing it with my favourite Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer (in Natural Radiance) to give me that extra glow I “need”.
Overall I would recommend the stretch concealer for sure, the skin tint I would recommend for light coverage only because it’s so natural and free of anything harmful to your skin. If it wasn’t for the health benefit I would put it much above any other skin tint. Also, the prices are great and obviously the packaging is too.
Any products you’ve tried and loved (or hated)?
*Unfortunately they don’t ship to Canada, surprise, surprise…. I live near the border so I’m able to order to my mailbox there. But hopefully, they will soon! As they begin to establish their brand over there, they will find that more and more people want their products in Canada. If they want to keep growing their business, they’re not going to refuse sales, so it’s likely that they will start looking into different shipping options. Often, one of the best shipping methods is ltl freight shipping. This ensures that the products get over to their intended destinations efficiently, whilst also saving the business some money as they can be shipped with other businesses’ items too if the packages are small enough. This often works out cheaper for the business, so there isn’t really any reason that this brand shouldn’t expand into Canada.
