Great news Glossier
Let’s face it: Glossier is slowly but surely taking over the world - and our IG feeds. With tons of people loving and living for this millennial brand, it’s no surprise that they’re finding new ways to also level up their products, formulas, and shade ranges! The brand just announced that they are expanding their shade ranges for ALL of their complexion products, making it that much easier to find your perfect “no-makeup makeup” shade! The Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint ($26) and Stretch Concealer ($18) will now be available in a total of 12 shades, while the Glossier Wowder ($22) will be available in 5 shades. This is a big step for the brand that has, in the past, been criticized for not being more inclusive with their makeup products. We can’t wait to see what else Glossier has in store for us this year!
