Hi, I’m Caroline, one of Jory’s friends and fashionista go-to’s!
I have been helping him behind the scenes with Sass & Leather over the years, and HAD to write a blog for the latest in women’s beauty news! Glossier, one of my fav beauty brands, has just launched their brand new perfume — YOU.
Not only am I DYING to get my hands on it and try it, but it reminded me of their recent pop-up in Toronto I had the pleasure of attending. The pop-up was in connection to their official launch in Canada (THANK HEAVENS)!!!
Glossier was founded by Emily Weiss (and of Into The Gloss, BTW), who had the goal to create a line of products that encourages authentic women’s beauty. Glossier products are fabulous because they are hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben and cruelty-free! Glossier became a household name for their “Boy Brow“. I use this product to make my eyebrows feel like royalty — and is the true envy of all other brow gels.
When I heard the launch was happening, I immediately made my list in my head. I knew going in I had to get the “Stretch Concealer“. This product acts as a second skin and has a great selection of shades for a large number of skin tones. This perfect for a lazy girl like me because you can apply it with your fingers.
Another product I was #DYING to get my hands on was “Balm Dotcom” in Birthday. The balm can be used for both lips and skin, and was inspired by the iconic Momofuku Milk Bar Birthday Cake #YUM. Lastly, I needed to get my hands on “Cloud Paint“. This cult-status cream blush is inspired by sunsets over the Big Apple, which you simply apply with your fingers to get your perfect colour.
The pop-up itself was a Millenial-pink hued, Byredo-scented dream. All of the girls working the pop-up wore amazing pink coveralls that were fitting with the femme-forward culture that Glossier promotes. The girls were so helpful, and even talked me into getting their “Haloscope“! This product creates a dewy-effect highlight that has a vitamin-enriched core—which makes you feel out of this world.
Overall, I am so happy that Glossier is now being shipped to Canada! This means I’ll HAVE to get my hands on their new scent, and restock on all of my favourite products ASAP! Don’t forget to check out all of the pics I got at the event below 🙂
