This Christmas is going to be the balm (dot com). Topping the list of one of my favorite beauty discoveries this year is Glossier. I recently became a devotee of the digital beauty company, the brainchild of Into The Gloss’ Emily Weiss. It’s minimalism, modern no-makeup makeup and inspired by real life. The entire line is just over a handful of products – the core collection being this set of essentials designed to be the backbone to your beauty routine. It’s highly edited – staples to fit into how you start your day: with a perfectly primed canvas. As they say, the formulas are meant to live with you, not on you, and really enhance what you already have. That’s a powerful POV and it shows in the products. The simplicity of it all is universally appealing and flattering. The Priming Moisturizer is like a drink of water for skin. The Perfecting Skin Tint is lightweight (extremely, miraculously so!) and lives in that space between bare skin and makeup. It doesn’t hide anything but gives a smooth dewy finish. The Balm DotCom is that salve you’ll squeeze every single last drop of because what doesn’t it do? Use it on lips, face, dry spots, cuticles, eyelids—everywhere, anywhere. The kind of do-it-all staple that you’ll curse if you forget it at home. The one you’ll want multiples of. And another super awesome Glossier perk: all orders come packaged in this pink bubble bag with a set of stickers to adorn your tubes and bottles with your personal mark.
