Glossier is just one of those brands that keeps sucking me in to buy their products. The only things I don’t have from their makeup collection are the new Lidstars, the lip gloss, and certain colors of different products.
I was actually completely surprised about their Lash Slick coming out – maybe I just didn’t notice anything about it before it was launched? Whatever the reason, I immediately ordered it when I saw Glossier’s introductory Instagram post.
After trying it out for a couple of weeks, I can safely say that this is one of my favorite mascaras.
From their website:
248 formulations later: the perfect everyday mascara. Lash Slick curls and sculpts as it lengthens, enhancing the look of your natural lashes instead of clumping them together or spackling them in product. Teeny-tiny fibers coat lashes from root to tip to create a lengthened baby-extension, while flexible film-forming polymers lift and lock each fiber into place. And it’s water-resistant (not waterproof), so Lash Slick washes off easy with warm water at the end of your day.
That’s a lot of formulations! I love how much thought and effort Glossier puts into the making of their products.
Anyways, on to the review. So like the quote from their website states, this is a lengthening mascara. I’ve read that it was made to mimc the look of false eyelashes. I naturally have somewhat long eyelashes, so I’m one of those people who look for mascaras that bring a lot of volume (L’oreal Lash Paradise is my HG for those purposes).
But I’ve been pleasantly surprising when I find myself reaching for the Lash Slick for my everyday makeup routine. Since summer is basically here in Virginia, I’ve been wearing a lot less makeup than I normally do, so maybe that has something to do with it. There’s something about the way this makes my eyes look more awake, in a very natural way. I’ve never really had a problem with mascaras smearing or smudging during the day, but I’ve heard that the Lash Slick is great at battling that.
At $16 a pop, it is a lot more pricey than what I normally shell out for mascaras, but so far I’m absolutely loving it. Glossier really can’t do wrong, can they?
