So, Glossier Stretch Concealer is finally mine! This review is sponsored by my brother, who lives in America. Jokes aside, since Glossier don't accept PayPal, international cards and only ship to US and Puerto Rico - it is a miracle I even hold this little guy. I have been testing this concealer for more than a month now and here is what I have to say.
2 Words About Glossier
Being founded by beauty editors of intothegloss.com, Glossier is not your generic beauty brand: it is modern, minimalistic, airy and real. Although it kind of tries to "stay away from popular beauty trends", it is very hyped up online and has a massive cult following on social media. Glossier believe in taking care of your skin first, so even their make-up products are infused with amazing ingredients. Typical Glossier girl: natural beauty, who embraces her imperfections and likes uncomplicated, very minimal make-up. Sounds like you?
Packaging & Claims
Whenever you order from Glossier, you get a handy bubble-wrap pink pouch, which is so great for liquids and carry-on. I am currently traveling and somehow managed to fit all of my little skincare bits and bobs in it. You also get a bunch of cute stickers, which you can decorate your favourite Glossier products with. The brand's packaging as a whole is very appealing and "millennial pink".
Stretch Concealer comes in this little glass pot and has a beautiful silver lid. It contains 0.17oz/5ml of an actual product, which is a good amount compared to other similar/popular concealers like NARS Soft Matte Concealer (0.21oz/6.21ml) or Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealer (0.16oz/4.7ml). Being all about make-up that looks like skin, Stretch Concealer is buildable and claims to: "move with your face, instead of caking on top of it"/ nourish/ cover redness, blemishes and dark circles/ enhance, brighten and "disappear" into your skin. It also contains avocado, jojoba, cocoa... I don't know about you guys, but reading that description made me drool for a moment. Comes in five shades (light to rich).
