Glossier Lash Slick Mascara Review
After doing research on various brands when it comes to natural mascara, all arrows pointed to Glossier! For a while, my “go to” was L’Oreal Paris’ Carbon Black Mascara, until I realized L’Oreal is not a cruelty-free brand…#savethebunnies. That being said, here is my review of Glossier’s new Lash Slick Lengthening Mascara! I hope you Jeaniez enjoy xo.
What It Is
Glossier has gone through over 248 formulations for mascara, as well as numerous mascara wands to create in their eyes the perfect everyday mascara. According to Glossier, “Lash Slick curls and sculpts as it lengthens, enhancing the look of your natural lashes… it’s water-resistant (not waterproof), so Lash Slick washes off easily with warm water at the end of your day.” Sounds good, huh?
This mascara tube is in Glossier’s classic 50’s pink casing with “Glossier” printed on the side. The mascara wand has a thin tip, to a thicker base, and spikey bristles! This allows one to yield evenly divided lashes, without clumping, and allows one to easily get towards baby lashes near inner corners.
Application + Wear Time
Now, being used to L’Oreal’s Carbon Black mascara, I find clumping normal, and thick texutres natural. It was actually a bit “weird” having a product glide on so smoothly for once! From the point of pulling up the wand, to the time the applicator touched my lashes not only did they look seperated (not clumpy), but they looked LONG, and wispy (like fairy lashes as I call them). Glossier claims this mascara is supposed to lengthen, and stregenthen lashes over time — this I cannot say, since I got the mascara TODAY, as you read this, but I can say my lashes looked almost like I had delicate flase lashes on, which is one of their claims “Extensions without the extensions.” As far as LONGITIVITY goes, the mascara lasted a good 5 hours wear time before I noticed the slightest of flakes, but this was due to the fact I am sick, and had my humidifier on. Please see the photo below which will demonstrate the comparison between both mascaras! If you look, not only on the left with Glossier’s are my lashes more seperated, they look less clumped.

Is this product worth your $16.00? Now, I can see how this product would work for someone with thick lashes, or those born with naturally fuller lashes, HOWEVER, if you have monolids, or short lashes I actually would suggest looking at brands such as ILIA, who offer voluminzing options. This mascara will not legenthen by much, it will only enhance, and offer hydration over time (what the product claims). For me personally, however, I 100% LOVE this product and will definently be using it in my everyday routine! In fact, I even am wearing Glossier’s Boy Brow in Blond, which I find to be the perefect match. I WOULD LIKE TO ADD Glossier had a scandal a few days ago with claiming their product with VEGAN, which it is not — it uses beeswax. This doesn’t bother me, but for some it might. Will you loves be testing out the millienal brand Glossier? Let me know in the comments below xo!
