Glossier Eyeliner: No. 1 Pencil Review & Swatches

Glossier No. 1 Pencil review by The Beauty Minimalist

Today’s post is all about a new-ish product from one of my favorite brands, Glossier Eyeliner, a review of the No. 1 Pencil that is supposed to be longwearing and won’t skip, tug or transfer.

No. 1 Pencil is basically the rebirth of Glossier Colorslide (which was discontinued a couple years ago). I’ve always loved colored eyeliner, even if I couldn’t always pull it off in an office setting. Colorslide wasn’t a bad product but it wasn’t memorable for me.

Here’s my honest Glossier eyeliner review:

Flat lay of Glossier eyeliners in assorted shades by The Beauty Minimalist

These are definitely an upgrade from Colorslide. They glide on perfectly and last all day. The only change is the cuter packaging and new shades. The application is easy and perfect for eyeliner beginners. Compared to other liners from Urban Decay and Marc Jacobs, these are definitely the more affordable option.

No. 1 Pencil is available in ten shades. I picked up six Glossier eyeliner shades to swatch and add to my collection. For reference, I have fair skin with neutral undertones and hazel eyes.

Muse: This is a soft lavender shade that I like to use to help brighten my eyes. Love!

Rococo: This is my favorite shade of the bunch. The deep eggplant complements my hazel green eyes.

Patina: A light grey-blue shade that is close to Early Girl. Love the color but I need to stop buying shades that don’t flatter my eye color.

Fresco: A dark, forest green that also looks good if you have green or hazel eyes.

Frame: A neutral brown. I typically gravitate to earthy tones and this shade glides on smooth and lasts all day.

Canvas: A pure white, perfect for the inner corner or lower water line to help make my eyes look larger and awake.
