Get the Glossier Glow!

  I want to start by saying that I have been a fan of Glossier since I first discovered it via Into the Gloss site. I think the marketing (or seemingly lack of) is mostly spot on and it blends the needs of the consumer with the company which enables them to develop products that do what they say. The Packaging Two words: Millennium Pink. It is super cute, well thought out and minimalist. Everything comes in pink bubble-wrap ziplock bags, which you can reuse. Glossier packaging is instantly recognisable, you can spot it anywhere! The Products Cloud Paint This … Continue reading Get the Glossier Glow!

Dior Pump n Volume Mascara

The Dior pump n volume mascara is unlike any other mascara with its squeezable tube. To use: Soften the formula and load the brush with as much product as you can handle! The brush is flexible yet stable allowing for precise application. I love the idea of the flexible tube which allows you to ‘heat’ the formula to eliminate clumps. It is addictive. This idea originates from an old beauty hack of heating the mascara tube with a hairdryer to soften the formula and reduce clumps – this is definitely easier! Verdict: While I loved the idea behind the mascara in … Continue reading Dior Pump n Volume Mascara
