I fell into the rabbit hole that is the Glossier Instagram feed and got swept up with the all of the hype surrounding it. After pleading with my bae to swing by the pop-up shop to try out (read: snag me) some of the stuff, I was able to get my hands on their Phase 1 Set. First impression: they win at packaging. Coordinating bubble wrap packages and STICKERS!!!!!
Yes, I’m still six. Moving on.
I have to say, I am really impressed with this stuff. As someone who is very…not into makeup…finding the right products to make me look like I got a full night’s sleep but don’t require extra tools for application has been difficult. *This girl* is well outside of the realm of beauty blogger, but I think I’ve found everything I need.
I’ve been using all four products for about a week now. Since this is a sharing place, here are my thoughts on each.
soothing face mist: smells great, hydrating, and, dare I say, actually soothing. I use this periodically throughout the day for a quick pick me up and it’s the only time floral smelling sprays aren’t offensive.
priming moisturizer: amazing stuff. Super lightweight, buildable without being greasy, and you get that really soft, just primed feeling because…well, it’s primer…but not really…because it’s moisturizer. Never mind. I’ll call it magic in a tube.
perfecting skin tint (dark): not built for any real coverage (*ahem* hyperpigmentation issues here), but it kills the red patches so it’s useful. It’s really light; undetectably so. Keeper.
balm dotcom: LOVE this stuff. Better than my go-to lip balm for long term moisturize and I use it on my cheeks to fake that fresh faced dewiness I see on younger people. Also great for random ashiness that creeps up during the day.
TL;DR – Glossier Phase 1 has my skin on fleek with minimal effort.
It’s November, so that means I’m scoping out a couple of things for the next season of Project 333. And since winter is in quotes for this part of the world, I think the above is perfect for it; chunky, but allowing for maximum airflow in case it suddenly shoots up to 90 degrees.
Continued adventures in strange ways to cuff clothing.
This shirt is one of the very few survivors from my super thrift days. I got it at a Hoodwill circa 2010 and, despite it being a tad too big and curling in odd places, I absolutely love it.
It has proven to be very versatile this season. So far it’s been an over-shirt, a skirt, and now a faux raglan sleeved button down. One day I may wear it the way it was intended, but that seems so…not as exciting.
Earnest Sewn jeans, Isabel Marant boots
I’ve worn these jeans more in the last three weeks than I have in the last three years. They had always been too long and seemed too precious to wear with any frequency.
Before the fall season of P333 began, I hemmed (read: cut) them to a more appropriate length; just below the ankle so they could still be cuffed the way I like my jeans to be. I dig the jagged edges, so I did this to keep them on display.
