My First Glossier Mini Haul Plus Review


Glossier Mini Haul Plus Review

Talk about being late to the party, I think this is more a case of the party being well and truly over! When Glossier first launched online, the hype was real, everyone in the blogging world was talking about it, but because in the past, I have fallen for the hype of a new product and been bitterly disappointed, I thought I'd wait a while before I tried anything and then see if anything took my eye. 

Well, I definitely let the hype die down, I completely forgot about trying Glossier and didn't get round to ordering any products, this isn't a reflection of Glossier, life got in the way and when I say the last few years had rather a few curveballs, they had a few curve balls! So buying makeup fell by the wayside I suppose. 

A few months ago, a half-price code for Glossier was leaked on social media, I wasn't lucky enough to get the discount, but it did draw me to the website and I started to look at some of the products. My youngest daughter also had a browse and we decided we'd buy a few bits if there was another discount anytime soon. 

As luck would have it, Glossier launched a discount code a couple of weeks later so I decided to order a couple of things, my thought process was, if I liked them, I could always try more. My daughter also ordered a couple of things, 1 the same as me, and 2 different. 

The things I bought were the Glossier Futuredew, the Glossier Lidstar and I received a double sample of the Glossier Cloud Paint

The products didn't take long to arrive at all and when they did they came in a box, and inside was a lightly padded pink plastic zip up bag with the products in, I liked this because it's a great bag and I use it to store other things in. The packaging is nice, white clean looking boxes and simple wording, the sample of the Cloud Paint was exactly what I expected, a small sample size with enough product to try it out properly. 

Glossier Futuredew - 30ml £23.00

Glossier Mini Haul Plus Review

What it is: A shortcut to the way your skin looks after a full skincare routine—dewy, glowing, cared-for—in one long-wearing product


  • Nourishing oils (that don’t feel greasy) immediately give you a gleamy, well-moisturized look that lasts up to 12 hours
  • Powerful plant-based extracts work to make your skin look brighter, instantly and over time
  • Use it as the last step in your skincare routine after moisturizer, serums, and sunscreen
  • Doesn’t interfere with makeup—just makes skin dewier   

Futuredew is an "oil-serum hybrid" that can be worn all over the face, with or without makeup, or can be applied to the highpoints of the face to add a glow. My skin is very dry and it suits my skin perfectly, I think if you're more oily you may not need to use it all over the face but could enjoy using it for the glow on the highpoints of the face. I do also wear it alone on no makeup days if I want to look a bit more alive, sometimes I'll add mascara and lipgloss but sometimes I just use it alone, my skin just seems to look better, more healthy and plumper, it's a really lovely product and I can completely understand why it was featured in Caroline Hirons hall of fame. 

The Futuredew is pale peach in colour and has a pump applicator, I use one to two pumps and just pump straight onto my fingertips and then I massage it into my skin using my fingers, you could use a brush if you wanted to. The scent of the product isn't overbearing and doesn't linger at all, the Futuredew blends well and sinks into the skin beautifully without feeling greasy or sticky and it makes a really beautiful base for my makeup and my foundation looks lovely, not cakey or dry at all.

The first time I used the Futuredew, I absolutely loved it. My skin is extremely dry and can look flakey, cakey and not great at all when I wear foundation, it doesn't matter which foundation or which coverage, it's just how my skin is. I do have a full and thorough skincare routine too, so sadly it's just something I have to put up with. The Futuredew is a complete and utter gamechanger for me and I will definitely repurchase, I haven't applied foundation without it since the first time I tried it and I will make sure it's a product I always have a backup of. 

Glossier Lidstar - £15.00

Glossier Lidstar

What it is: Soft, glistening eye colour that lasts all-day


• Creates a sheer veil of colour that locks onto lids without creasing (so no need for primer)
Ultrafine pigments are enveloped in a buttery base for a silky, blendable formula that swipes on easily
Each shade features different pearls, flecks, and pigments, for multidimensional colour that glows

Glossier Lidstar

I bought the Lidstar in the shade Fawn, which is described as a cool smoky taupe with violet and neutral gold pearls, I would say the shade description is pretty accurate, it's a lovely shade and has some sparkle which I seem to be drawn to, I think I was a magpie in a previous life.

Unedited Swatch

The Lidstar comes with a doe foot applicator which picks up a good amount of product, it sweeps the shadow over the eye effortlessly and applies a nice amount, not too much or too little. I use the applicator to apply the shadow to my eye lids and then blend it out and up into my socket with a fluffy blending brush and I also take some product from the applicator onto a small detailer brush which I then apply to my lower lash line, this is a really easy eye makeup look that finished with some mascara is effortless and has been my go to eye look since the Lidstar arrived.

Wearing the Lidstar in Fawn

The Lidstars are available in 8 different shades, so if Fawn isn't for you, there are other shades to choose from, I have my eye on the shade Cub, which is a rose gold shade with a shimmer effect, I think that is definitely going to be in my next Glossier haul, it's a lovely shade. 

Sample - Cloud Paint in Storm & Puff

Glossier Cloud Paint

At the checkout when finalising the details of your Glossier order, there is an option to choose a sample, there are some skincare samples, and a perfume sample amongst others, but as soon as I saw the Cloud Paint samples I added them to my basket. I'd heard so many great things about these blushers and I love a cream blush so I wanted to try them. 

The samples come in the shades Storm and Puff, Storm is described as a warm rose and Puff is described as a cool pink, both are lovely shades and there is more than enough in the samples to try both shades and see if you like them. Puff was my favourite but I do like both shades and will definitely try more, I like the look of the shade Beam which is a soft peach. 

Sadly I am a bad blogger and completely forgot to swatch the Cloud Paint samples or take a photograph of my makeup when wearing them, but you can take my word for it that they are lovely, easy to apply and blend nicely into the skin, and don't disappear as you blend them like some other cream blushers I have tried in the past . I used my ring finger to tap the Cloud Paint onto the skin and then blended, also using my finger and finishing with my beauty blender. 

Overall Thoughts

My First Glossier Mini Haul

I am really pleased with the products I have from Glossier and I will 100% be buying more, my only regret is not buying these products sooner, especially the Futuredew, that is an absolute hero product for me and the best base I have ever used for my makeup. If you haven't tried anything from Glossier yet, bite the bullet like I did, I promise you, you won't regret it. 

As I type this it is Black Friday tomorrow and there is 20% off everything on the Glossier website right through until Monday 29th November 202, so a perfect time for me to try some more products, and for you to too if you would like. 

If you would like to try or just browse the Glossier website over the next few days, you can find it HERE, you never know, you might just pick up a bargain or two! 

Have you tried anything from Glossier? Do you have a hero or favourite Glossier product, I'd love to know.
