Glossier's motto is "Skin first. Makeup second" and the brand is deadly serious about its makeup minimalism mantra. But Glossier is not merely about caring for skin, with a desert island product like the thoroughly awesome, heaven-in-a-bottle Milky Jelly cleanser, as a primary activity and then secondarily beautifying it with color or feature-specific products. Glossier's new Phase 2 Set is a trio of makeup basics that is meant to live and work "with" you, as opposed to "on" you. Phase 2 consists of a revolutionary and buildable concealer with an array of shades suitable for all skin tones, four sheer lipstick shades, and three brow pomade hues. You can purchase the products separately or you can grab them together as a simple but effective, do-it-all set. How much are the Glossier Phase 2 products, both together and on their own?
Well, the Glossier Phase 2 set, which is sold exclusively via the brand's site and certainly advances the pared down, skin-first, almost naked look that Glossier is all about, comes with a $50 price tag. How much are the individual items in the set?
Here is the breakdown of the Glossier Phase 2 set, which is affordable and falls in line with department store product prices.
The Stretch Concealer is $18, and it's pretty genius since it's made of elasticized, micro waxes and nourishing oils. This concealer is designed to move like skin and offers a dewy finish. It's also brilliant because it's buildable. If you want more coverage, then you add more product and you're dunzo. I used it to pretty much erase under-eye circles.
The Generation G lipsticks offer a sheer but matte wash of color and come in four shades. They are also meant to be applied sans liner. It's an easy, grab 'n' go lipstick that costs $18.
This is me wearing Cake, a peachy pink. I am taking this baby with me to SXSW this week. Since I will be on the go nonstop for three days, I can brighten my face and feel glam with little effort, without needing a mirror, and without sacrificing precious real estate in my TSA-approved baggie of products.
This Glossier lippy takes the Cake.
The Boy Brow pomade made its debut in 2015 and it's back! You can tame brows with this bad "Boy," which costs $16.
Those are your standalone prices, but they're better together for $50.
