So it's no secret that I love Glossier's products. I've written about before here and here. I was, like many of you, skeptical of the new mascara when it came out a month ago. I'm a mascara FANATIC. Lashes are everything, I mean, everything to me. As you know, I occasionally get lash extensions, when I don't want to apply the endless coats of mascara every day (which I admittedly, love to do, time permitting.) But, this month, I've been giving my lashes a little break and am working on conditioning them regularly and having a more natural look.
Enter the Glossier mascara, Lash Slick.
I love it. Really. It's a really great mascara. Especially for those who love more natural, separated lashes. Important: this is a big deal coming from me, Queen of the Chunky, Layered, Spider Lashes. I typically love my mascara, dark, thick, and heavy. This isn't that. But, it CAN be if you let the coats dry in between.
Application: I start by curling my lashes, though I don't do this every time. I then use the Lash Slick to carefully comb out my lashes. The fibers in it help coat each lash nicely without it smudging or bleeding onto my lids or under eyes. I like to wait a few seconds between coats to let the previous coats dry and have the strength to be layered on with another coat - just like you would when you're painting your nails.
If you want a little extra...
I've said this before, and I'll say it again, and will probably write it on my damn tombstone at this point. IF YOU WANT THICK, LONG LASHES, YOU NEED TO USE A LASH PRIMER. I love love love L'Oreal's lash primers and so does my HERO, Lara Pia Arribio.
LPA swears by GrandeLash, a lash conditioner and enhancing serum which, I'm going to buy before I even finish writing this post.
Any who, back to Lash Slick. Let's talk about the removal process because I'm sure like all of you, nothing erks me more than hopping out of the shower with raccoon eyes that I need to remove with a makeup wipe. Not here. If you have the Glossier Milky Jelly, or really any face wash that you can use on your eyes (some use baby shampoo) you can easily remove the Lash Slick. I've never had any bleeding or smudging with this mascara and for that alone, it's worth the purchase.
Glossier's Key Ingredients (as listed on their site):
Japanese Fiber Technology: One and two millimeter-long curved fibers hook onto lashes, adding length. Consider these your lash “extensions.”
Vegan Biotin: Conditions and strengthens for healthier, softer lashes over time.
Natural Shine Polymers: Enhances the formula’s black pigments so lashes are extra shiny and sleek.
Tapered Comb Brush: The tiered bristles and precise tip separate top and bottom lashes at the root, ensuring even application.
**Side note - did you see that Glossier now has GIPHY stickers on Instastories? Fun Fun Fun.
