My relationship with Glossier hasn’t been a smooth one, to say the least. I got my first ever Glossier products when the brand first started shipping in the United Kingdom. Like many, I was curious to try the IG cult brand. Can you blame me?
Things did not go all that well. There haven’t really been many products from the brand that actually managed to impress me. However, I kept trying and trying just to try and understand why so many are obsessed with the products.
One product that managed to catch and maintain my attention is the Glossier Stretch Concealer. Is the Glossier Clear Lip Gloss another? Read and find out.
Glossier Clear Lip Gloss Review
The Glossier Clear Lip Gloss is just a plain lip gloss at first sight. There is nothing special about it when you just look at it. However, things are a bit different when you actually try it on.
The Glossier Lip Gloss has one of the best applicators I have ever seen. The applicator is easy to use and as the brand claims, it does indeed pick up just the right amount of product. Not only that, but it actually helps you spread the product evenly without going outside the lines of your lips.
Sounds good right?
It really is. Furthermore, the gloss is well, very glossy, but not at all sticky. The product might stick to your lips, but your lips do not stick together much. I don’t want to say that your lips do not stick at all as that is not my experience. They usually don’t, but sometimes they do just a bit. However, the level of stickiness is significantly lower than the one of the regular lip gloss. So if stickiness is a concern, then this might just be the product for you.
In addition, you should note that the lip gloss feels nice on the lips and that it does not have a strong fragrance.
All good so far, but…
Look, the Glossier lip gloss might be really good and looks very pretty, however the tube is the smallest tube of lip gloss I have ever seen. The clear lip gloss from Glossier comes in a 4.2 ml tube and that is tiny! Sure, the tube is easy to hold and it fits everywhere. You really don’t need to carry around a product that is bigger than this, however the price is just too high for the amount of product you are getting.
The Glossier Lip Gloss is priced at £11. Usually that is okay for a really good lip gloss, but the issue here is that you can get others that are more or less on the same level for less money while also get more product. You really are paying for the brand name here.
Furthermore, I did not find the gloss as nourishing as it claims to be and the staying power is not that amazing either. After talking for around 20 minutes, the product was gone and as you can imagine I did not talk the entire time either. Okay, that is hard to believe, but I really did not!
Overall, I do like the Glossier Lip Gloss. I don’t regret my purchase which is quite surprising when it comes to the brand. However, I am not really in a hurry to repurchase the product. Sure, I still have some product left but in general I don’t see myself repurchasing it anyway. There are many other products out there that I want to try. I would try the newly released Red and Holographic versions of this gloss though.
