Lash Slick Dupe Review
I will admit that I immediately fell in love with the effortless application of Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara
Dec. 19, 2020
I have to admit I have been in love with the asthetics of Glossier for a couple years now but the price point always made me hesitant. This year I FINALLY decided to take advantage of their Cyber Sale. Overall, I wasn't left disappointed! Glossier definitely has the "no makeup makeup" concept down and I was super impressed with how well some of the products helped me achieve this look. Glossier. - Boy Brow This is for sure a new staple in my makeup bag! The formula is light and performs beautifully to give your brows a natural shape. I previously used the e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel as a dupe recommendation and I personally don't think it's a comparable dupe at all. While the results are similar, Boy Brow is more waxy and moveable, while Wow Brow leaves my eyebrows crunchy and weighted down. Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick I really wanted to love this lipstick. I adore the concept and it genuinely gives a blotted lipstick look. I love the color (I purchased like) because it gives me a "my lips but better" color. However, I can't get over the waxy plastic smell they claim to be lychee rose. It lingers on my lips and it's a no for me because of the fragrance. Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder This really is WOWder! It's light as it claims, eliminates some dewy shine from your face, and works wonders to even skin tone and blurr large pores. It's a new favorite in my makeup collection and has replaced light foundation when I want a simple no makeup look. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom Hands down the best lipbalm I have ever used, no question about it! I purchased the original and mint, which I use several times a day now. I plan on purchasing more in the near future so they can live all over my house and in my purse forever and ever. Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid I was nervous about this product based on the reviews I read. It really does give a healthy glow to the skin that looks like it comes from within. I use it as a natural looking highlighter too. But it doesn't completely dry down, thus one star removed. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer This isn't a medium or full coverage concealer, but in my opinion it still performs beautifully. After applying it under my eyes I noticed the area looked brighter and I looked more awake. It doesn't cover redness but it does even skin tone some and looks like my skin, but better. I don't have any creasing either after wearing it all day. Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara I love everything about this mascara EXCEPT it sometimes flakes. It really gives my lashes a natural look and again, "my lashes but better." I am on the hunt for a dupe that doesn't flake. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color These are everything they are hyped up to be and more! I purchased Beam and Dusk. Both look beautiful, are highly pigmented, and give my cheeks a healthy natural glow.

HG after one use!!!
I recently picked up two products from my local Target a couple days ago: e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel in neutral brown & wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara in very black The first picture is my before - as you can see, my eyebrows are naturally lighter than my hair, and my eyelashes don't particularly stand out. The next photo is me at work in the morning (my uni's music library!) with my eyebrows and mascara done, and the final photo is how it held up into the evening! Throughout the day, I itched my eyes and brows multiple times, and no budge!! Also, I've found that this mascara is easy to use due to its wand, and it doesn't make my eyelashes feel dried out or heavy! Already, I can tell that both of these items are going to be staples in my go-to natural daily look! *DISCLAIMER: Alongside the mascara, I used my regular e.l.f. - Clear Brow & Lash Mascara to prime my eyelashes (I did not use it on my eyebrows, though), and I used e.l.f. - Dewy Coconut Setting Mist to set the entire eye look.
my everyday makeup ❀ ✧
i’m here to share my everyday makeup! i’ve stuck to this routine for a while and really love it. super simple but still makes me look put together for day to day activities and zoom calls lol. Too Faced - Natural Face Palette i got this for christmas a couple years ago and put it away. it’s never been used, but when i was going through my makeup i stumbled upon it and tried it for a couple days. i fell in love. my taste in makeup has been changing and i love more pinky blushes and don’t really need a super bright highlighter. i mix pink wink and pink sand on my cheeks and then after my eyeliner i use starlight for my inner corner highlight and my nose highlight. so beautiful and they pair so well. if u have a red undertone to your skin it makes you look so cute!!! highly recommend! also sometimes if i feel like it i put the bronzer shades on my eyelids for a bit of color e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel in a recent ulta order i decided to pick this up because i’ve been trying to find my perfect tinted eyebrow gel, and i think i’ve found it! i love the way it holds my brows and the color is perfect. i believe it has fibers in it and it makes my brows look so fluffy! wet n wild - MegaLast Breakup-Proof Black Liquid Eyeliner this is the best drugstore eyeliner i’ve ever tried. almost every eyeliner i try smudges bc i yawn a lot throughout the day. it always ends up under my eyes creating the raccoon eye effect. but not this one. it stays put, the color is super rich, and it’s easy to apply once you get the hang of it as it is a brush tip. NYX - Vinyl Liquid Liner this eyeliner is really hard for me to apply eyeliner bc i’m not used to the brush yet. but i use it to put little dots under my eyes. i think it’s a simple way to add some ✨spice✨ to a simple makeup look 😊 wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara i love this mascara and especially the price. it stays put and keeps my lashes curled. the formula is pretty light which i really like bc it doesn’t weigh down my lashes. i forgot to add this product, but the last thing i do is put a little bit of stila - Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in grace. i apply a little tiny bit on my finger and then gently pat it onto my eye. so beauty and again, a simple way to take a simple look to the next level. it’s not too shimmery and subtle if you put a little bit. i love it💗
boy brow vs w3ll people brow gel
Second pic: natural eyebrow Third pic: boy brow left, W3ll people right I have been a long time fan of glossier’s boy brow eyebrow gel. I think it gives a really natural look, and adds to my standard “less is more” makeup routine. However, I found this vegan drugstore brand of eyebrow gel from W3ll People and wanted to give it a try! It is a touch cheaper than glossier, and more accessible since you can find it at target etc. overall, boy brow is the winner (pictured on the left in the third photo). Glossier. - Boy Brow my only drawback about this gel is that, due to the upward stroke application, I sometimes have to use a spoolie to smooth my eyebrows into the shape I want. But as for as color and fill, I think this is the perfect brow gel for someone who wants a little bit of definition without looking like they have done anything to their brows. W3LL PEOPLE - Expressionist Brow Gel as you can see in the third picture, this gel goes on cakey and leaves a lot of product behind (in the picture I even went over it with a q tip to wipe off the excess, and it is still too much). Also, unlike boy brow, I can feel this gel on my eyebrow - it feels waxy and heavy, and not as natural as the glossier product. This brand is fine if you want to go for the darker, more noticeably filled in look, especially on a budget, but it is definitely waxier and leaves a lot of product behind.
BEST DAILY MASCARA :)
i use this mascara every day and i could not recommend it more!!! my lashes are very short and light but this mascara helps make them look voluminous and long. it stays on throughout my entire day of school and exercising without rubbing off at all. 10/10 would recommend!! one thing to note is that because this mascara is so strong you really need to rub your lashes to take it off. if you do leave some product on it will stick your lashes together overnight and it will be hard to apply more mascara the next day :)
L'ORÉAL-Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara
Glossier Lash Slick
Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara This replaced my favorite mascara. I used to exclusively use the Benefit They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara but I tried this since it’s at a lower price point, plus the packaging on this is just darn cute. This mascara was so easy to use, never clumps, had the perfect plastic bristle brush (which I prefer), and really gets every lash coated. Plus this doesn’t come off until you wash it off with warm water. It’s a tuning mascara so it coats the lashes and makes them longer. I wear this mostly for every day looks and sometimes for going out looks when my lashes are cooperating with me. I just never really have an issue with it and it’s so easy to get off. I’m on my third tube now!
Glossier.-Lash Slick Mascara
A dupe worth the hype 🙏🏼
A friend told me about this, they said this wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara was a perfect dupe for the Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara First thing I’ll say is I like the Glossier mascara a lot, but it doesn’t lift my lashes too much and it definitely does not look like lash extensions as advertised (at least not on me). Now, the wet n wild mascara is definitely an amazing dupe for glossier lash slick. They had a very similar plastic brush, it’s super flexible so it gets every lash and as you can see, the wet n wild side looks a lot more lifted and separated not to mention it was only like $3 compared to $16 for lash slick!
Glossier.-Lash Slick Mascara
Drugstore Makeup that Blew my Mind!
Product: Covergirl LashBlast Volume Mascara Price: $7.99 Product Claims: 10x more volume, Achieve a big, bold lash look after only one coat, and Volume-boosting, hypoallergenic formula and brush are designed to max out every lash. Product Target Concerns: Longer lashes with less application Texture/Consistency: Smooth without being clumpy and easy to apply multiple layers although only a few is needed My Thoughts on the Product: Whenever I need a trusty mascara I always go back to this one. It is easy to apply and it doesn't take many layers to be thick and long. It doesn't clump at all. It is easy to remove without damaging or removing lashes and the black is so bright, it looks amazing. Recommend to Others? Yes! Only reason I did 4 stars is because their parent company is not cruelty free so I actually find them claiming to be a little frustrating. But for the price, how long it lasts and how easy it is to apply it is definitely a good drugstore find! COVERGIRL - LashBlast Volume Mascara
COVERGIRL-LashBlast Volume Mascara
Lash extensions without the extensions
The name of the product says it ALL! This mascara seriously makes it look like I got lash extensions. It add serious volume and lasts all day without any flakiness. I’m obsessed. thrive causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™
