BARELY THERE YET HIGHLY NEEDED, THE GLOSSIER STRETCH CONCEALER

When it comes to beauty brands and beauty buzz, I am usually the one who’s patiently waiting for it to quiet down before trying anything new. Glossier, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. More sceptical and perhaps less patient than usual, I just couldn’t resist purchasing a few of their best sellers: the Glossier Stretch Concealer is one of them!

The Glossier Stretch Concealer in Light 10 -and the change of colour and consistency once it has been used-

Housed in a sleek -typical of Glossier– little pot, the Stretch Concealer can be a little bit misleading: a solid concealer usually goes hand in hand with high coverage, thick consistency and an application which requires dexterity. Coming from Glossier, the brand which makes natural beauty sound a little bit more appealing than usual, it comes as no surprise that this little number of theirs isn’t the concealer to reach for on catastrophic mornings! In fact, as soon as the finger hits the concealer, nothing looks matte -the shade also becomes a little bit lighter- or thick anymore…

…The Stretch concealer has a soft, glossy consistency with a coverage which isn’t low, but rather light and buildable, thanks to its thin, skin like finish. Somewhere in between an under eye illuminator and a plain concealer, it combines light coverage and longevity with luminosity and brightening properties. Closer to a foundation than most concealers, it also looks natural on the small redness of the face when a proper base isn’t essential or represents too much time and effort. Neither cakey nor makeupey, it would be difficult to tell where concealer has been used and where the skin is left bare.

Barely there but somehow very hydrating and needed for the skin, this little pot definitely shows that Glossier isn’t just about minimalist aesthetic, cute stickers and fancy pink clutch bags, it is about makeup which feels like skincare and, hopefully, skincare which needs less makeup.

    • No matter how long we try to resist it, we all end up trying the brand at some point, which is funny! I think you’ll love this one, because it is quite hydrating and brightening πŸ™‚

  • This sounds absolutely lovely! I just found out that Glossier has launched in Canada so I will be placing an order in the future, maybe end of this year or so.

  • I am somehow not really interested in Glossier, despite all the nice t.hings I keep reading about them. And I don’t think this concealer would be for me either. But it is good that it works out so well for you.

    • Yes, I was VERY sceptical to begin with, but so far I have nothing bad to say about the brand, except perhaps for some misleading names sometimes!
