If you’re a Glossier first-time buyer, this post is for you!

Glossier has widely expanded from skincare to makeup to body and fragrance products. I would describe Glossier as a beauty brand best known for minimal makeup looks and uncomplicated beauty routines.

This is a Glossier first-time buyers guide. If you’re not sure where to start, I’ve curated the ultimate shopping list that won’t disappoint.

The Makeup Set ($40) | Cloud Paint, Boy Brow and Lash Slick 
Glossier is known for their beauty sets where you can save some money while bundling multiple products. I personally think The Makeup Set includes all the quintessential daily makeup staples. The set includes Cloud Paint, the best cream blush in my opinion (choose from 8 shades); Boy Brow, a grooming brow gel (available in 5 shades); and Lash Slick, a tubing mascara that will lengthen and separate lashes.

Stretch Concealer ($18)
When it comes to a complexion product, this is my favorite everyday concealer and it has lasted me a long time. It offers light to medium coverage and blends with just your finger, brush or sponge. My makeup always looks fresh and dewy without feeling heavy or caked on. Available in 12 shades.

Ultralip ($18)
Out of all the lip products Glossier produces, Ultralip is easily the best of the bunch and I would recommend this to any first time buyer. It combines the moisture of a balm, the sheen of a gloss and the buildable color of a lip tint – and no application hassle. Most of the shades are everyday neutrals so you’ll definitely get the most use out of them. I have swatches of Ultralip in this post.

Milky Jelly Cleanser ($9+)
The first and only skincare product I would recommend for Glossier first-time buyers is the gentle conditioning cleanser. Skincare is so personal and I always recommend patch testing first. Personally, this cleanser feels amazing on my skin. It gently cleanses without stripping my skin or feeling dehydrated. That said, this is not a one-size fits all cleanser. While it does a decent job removing minimal makeup, I still prefer to double cleanse with an oil-based cleanser first. If you want a deep pore-level clean, you may want to check out Cleanser Concentrate (review here).
