Glossier Haul + Mini Reviews

In my last post, I gave you a peek inside the Glossier showroom in New York City. Today, I’m sharing more about what I picked up during that excursion and my thoughts on each product.

The one Glossier product I was dying to try was the Perfecting Skin Tint. This tint offers sheer but build able coverage and I picked mine up in the shade Medium. It evens out my skin tone but I don’t look like I have a ton of makeup caked on my face.

Another hyped up Glossier product is Boy Brow and it definitely lives up to the hype. It subtly fills, shapes and grooms brows in one easy step. The shade I use is Brown but it also comes in Blond, Black and Clear. If you want a quick, simple way to make your brows look a bit more polished, you need this product in your life.

Generation G is a sheer matte lip color I spied at the showroom and ended up going home with a tube in the shade Cake. I’m more of a gloss girl so this product isn’t my favorite but I’m still glad I gave it a try. If you’re after a natural looking lip color, Generation G is for you.

Glossier’s newest addition is Cloud Paint, a gel-cream blush available in four sheer shades. I bought one in Dusk, a warm bronzey color. You can apply this product with a brush, sponge or your fingers and it lasts all day long!

Visiting the Glossier Showroom

One of the things I love about living in New York City is that there’s always something cool to experience. If you’re makeup-obsessed like me, one thing you have to do is visit the Glossier showroom.

I’ve followed Glossier for a while and have always wanted to try their products. So, one Sunday I took a trip down to their showroom to try out a few of their products.

Once inside the Glossier building (located at 123 Lafayette Street in Manhattan), you’ll take the elevator up to the penthouse where you’re greeted by the most Instagram-worthy space imaginable.

From skin care to makeup, the Glossier showroom has it all. I tried out quite a few of their products including the Milky Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moisturizer, Stretch Concealer, Boy Brow and Generation G. It was so great (and fun) to try everything before making a purchase, which you know I had to do!

I Moved!

Things have been so crazy for me the last month or so and I haven’t had any time to share my big announcement with all of you: I moved to New York City!

new-york-skyline

After wanting to make this move for quite a few years, I am happy to say that I accepted a job in Manhattan and moved to the city this week. I’m still adjusting to my new life and settling in, but I’m so excited to see where this adventure takes me.

In order to share a little bit more of my new NYC life with all of you, I’ve created a new blog, C & The City. My new blog will be a chance to share my experiences in a less structured, more casual space.

If you have any favorite New York City spots I should check out, please let me know in the Comments section!

What I’m Loving: The Perfect Sweater

If you’re anything like me, you don’t buy a piece of clothing unless it’s juuuuust right. This applies to everything from shirts, dresses, pants, shoes, etc.

Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect cable knit sweater and I finally found it. I popped into Urban Outfitters to do a return and couldn’t resist doing a little shopping. While browsing the store, I came across the most perfect sweater and decided I had to have it.

It’s a beautiful, cozy cable knit sweater that’s not too heavy, not too fitted and long enough for a tall girl like me. The sweater also has adorable elbow patches and comes in quite a few colors. Plus, it’s currently on sale so snag one while you can!

Updated Nighttime Skincare Routine

As I get older (the big 2-9 is fast approaching), I’ve made an effort to up my skincare game. I posted a night time skin care routine last year, but have since made quite a few changes.

My skin is somewhat oily and breakout prone but I’m also working to prevent signs of aging. My current routine is the perfect amount of acne fighting and fine line prevention and I’ve really been loving my skin lately.

Below is my full night time skin care routine. It might seem a bit excessive but it works. I’ll admit I don’t do all these steps every night, but when I do, I can definitely tell a difference in my skin.

  1. Cleansing Balm: When I feel like I’ve really caked on my makeup, I count on Clinique’s Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm to remove every ounce of makeup. It takes off everything from foundation to mascara and I couldn’t be happier with it.
  2. Cleanser: I’m a big fan of Neutrogena’s cleansers and am currently using their Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser. It smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh.
  3. Toner: This Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner is yet another Neutrogena product I love. I use it day and night to get my skin squeaky clean and prevent future breakouts. I really think it’s made a difference in the amount of breakouts I’ve had and I highly recommend it.
  4. Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil: I know. This retinol face oil is crazy expensive. However, purchase this set for a bit of a price break and give it a try. I’ve used this sleeping oil for a few months and have noticed such an improvement in my skin. Trust me, it’s worth the investment.
  5. Moisturizer: After letting the Sunday Riley oil sink in for a few minutes, I apply a bit of the Olay Regenerist Sculpting Face Cream to my face and neck. It’s affordable and moisturizes the skin without causing breakouts.
  6. Eye Cream: I recently came across the Glow by Dr. Brandt Revitalizing Retinol Eye Cream and I’m obsessed with it. It contains retinol and mosturizes the eye area while preventing and reducing fine lines.
  7. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate: Finally, after all the above mentioned products have had time to sink in, I pat this oil on my face to seal everything in. It can also be used on your hands, feet, or in a warm bath.

What are your favorite skin care products?
