It’s easy to become jaded when it comes to beauty. (Another miraculous anti-ager? Snooze.) But when the queen of beauty blogs creates her own line of products, you listen. Hence, why we’re intrigued with Glossier--a fresh new line from Emily Weiss, founder of Into the Gloss.

The line debuted with Phase 1, four beauty essentials dubbed "skincare as makeup." We tried them out for seven days and here’s what we found.

Priming Moisturizer ($25)

Meant to be layered (and prime your skin for makeup), the moisturizer does its job. We tend to have combination skin, and it left our cheeks hydrated and our T-zone dewy, rather than slick. Hallelujah.

Balm Dotcom ($12)

We pride ourselves on carefully dodging a marketing ploy, but we have to say, this balm lives up to its name. We used it on everything from our cuticles to our dry elbows. Think: Aquaphor in much prettier packaging.

Soothing Face Mist ($18)

While nothing could ever compare to Caudalie’s Elixir, this rosewater spray comes close. The scent isn’t too overpowering, and it’s perfect for those times when you just need a refresher (after the gym, before you put on makeup, after the meeting that put you in a cold sweat--you get the idea).

Perfecting Skin Tint ($26)

Kind of like a tinted moisturizer, this formula blends to match your skin tone rather perfectly (we were impressed). However, if you’re looking for more sustainable coverage, look elsewhere.


The Verdict

Some quality winners in this bunch (we recommend adding the Balm Dotcom to your cart, ASAP), but we’d love the addition of a face wash and maybe a travel-size spray (hint, hint).

P.S. Glossier has a pop-up in NYC where you can play and try this stuff free of charge. Just sayin’.
