Here at The Motherchic HQ we like to be in the know. Or, at least pretend we know a little bit about the latest and greatest happenings in the pop culture world. A few months ago I shared an article in our Sunday Brief about the Emily Weiss, the woman who founded Glossier. After reading this I was totally inspired – a gutsy millennial who has a new take on the beauty industry.
The premise behind this brand (that has a huge cult following by the way) is simple: make people feel good and listen to your customers by giving them what they want.
Abby, Christine and I spent some time last week playing around with the products everyone can’t seem to stop talking about. Wowder? Yes please! Cloud Paint? Don’t knock it till you try it! Lash Slick? Most definitely! And lest we forget Boy Brow? A MUST.
The goal of our little make up try on session? That barely-there-summer-glowy-dew. Easy enough, right?
What is It: Gel Cream Blush (I’m wearing Dusk)
How to apply: Squeeze a small amount onto your fingers (v. small), dot on your cheeks and blend upward.
The Verdict: SO easy to apply and gives that fresh, flushed look. To avoid going overboard with color, start with a small amount and build on.
Shop Cloud Paint Here
What is It: Universal highlighter for that subtle, fresh faced glow.
How to apply: A little swipe on all of the key spots: apples of your cheeks, cupids bow (translation: that little area above your lip), brow bone (right underneath the brows), inner corner of eyes, center bone of nose (just not the tip!) clavicle bone… go nuts!!
The Verdict: Buy these in bulk and stash them in your purse, your car, your husband’s car, your first aid kit. You never know when you might need this amazing perk me up.
Shop Haloscope Here
What is it: The newest member to Glossier, their highly anticipated everyday mascara.
How to Apply: Comb through lashes from root to tip. Add more than one coat for more wow.
The Verdict: The team was blown away by how this product defines your lashes – hooray for no more clumps!! We found that more lengthening was achieved with a second coat and even more excited about the list of ingredients – paraben free, fragrance free, hypoallergenic, and great for sensitive eyes.

Other must try products include…..
Boy Brow– one of their best selling products that I now can’t leave my house without. It’s a brush on gel that gives your brows the definition they need so you can walk out of your house with a framed face (and no stragglers).
The team has also been loving the Wowder – a mattifying powder that sets makeup and cuts shine. I use it throughout the day especially on my t-zone. And their Sheer Matte Lipstick which as they describe it is “just-blotted lipstick, without the blot”. I couldn’t say it better myself! I have the colors “Like” and “Cake”.
Our little make up play session was a success and Glossier has three new fans to add to their millions long list. I’m sort of fan girling out to see what their newest release will be, but first shop our favorites below and check out our barely-there-summer-glow-dew “afters”…..
