Today I want to put Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint & Glossier Balm Dot Com on your radar. Wondering about the origins of Glossier? If you are an avid beauty reader, you may have heard of Into The Gloss – the website? If you haven’t, go check it out, it is really informative, chock full of fun reads and lovely content.
First, the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint is the most sheer coverage product I’ve come across yet. If you love full coverage, Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint is not for you. Glossier Perfecting Ting is a super liquid product, so sheer you have to use it in small amounts as its texture is light and very fluid. What I like about Glossier Skin Tint the most is the finish, your skin will look like skin with a nice tweak of evenness. If you need extra coverage for redness and discoloration, you’ll need to correct that with a concealer or a corrector for red/ blue. Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint comes in five shades which may not necessarily match every skin tone (see swatches). I definitely love the sheer effect of Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. Also, I appreciate that this product does not sit heavy on the skin. I have swatches from Light, Dark, Deep and Rich (missing Medium). On myself, I mixed Light and Dark to get a more accurate color match on my skin since I do not have Medium on hand. On my photo, I have bare minimal makeup on to give you an idea of how sheer and natural Glossier feels.

On to Glossier Balm Dotcom, this is one of my most favorite products from Glossier. Having just experienced one of the coldest weekends of all time in NYC, I put Glossier Balm Dotcom to the test and used it straight into my driest areas of the face. Immediately, I felt hydrated and loved the absorption into my skin. Glossier Balm Dotcom is rich in moisture, thick and can be used in various areas of your body. The way I used Balm Dotcom is by blending it with my moisturizer before using Glossier Skin Tint, the finish was glorious and stays on well. I also applied Glossier Balm Dotcom on my lips for added protection. This product is scent free. And yes, there is Petrolatum as the main ingredient so if you are not a fan of this, it is on there.
