Glossier Is 20% Off—See Our Editor Try the New Gen G Inside

Who remembers when I tried out Glossier's Cloud Paint and a kind stranger on the elevator told me I should model? Good times, man. Ever since Glossier earned me that major compliment, it's been just peachy in my book. I've tried a bunch of Glossier products and a few stand out among the rest. First, the Milky Jelly Cleanser has remained a staple in my skincare routine. I double-cleanse, and absolutely love how this silky texture slips my makeup right off. I'm also a huge fan of Body Hero. It coats my consistently dry skin with loads of moisture and I'm into how rich and creamy it feels. And last but certainly not least, Boy Brow gives my brushed-up brows extra dimension. So, I keep that close too. 

To be honest, I haven't been 100% hooked on a Glossier lip product until now. I like Balm Dotcom, but haven't worn the original Gen G shades enough to have an established opinion. That just changed. Glossier recently re-launched new Gen G lipsticks in a sheer, matte formula. They have the feel of a balm with buildable colors you can control. Made of sunflower and safflower oil, beeswax, and blue agave, these lipsticks are incredibly hydrating and nourishing. I think of them as a bold matte lipstick's chiller cousin in six low-key, toned-down, barely-there-but-there shades. 

Today's your lucky day, too, if you're all about that beauty on a budget life. Starting today until Monday, November 26, every single thing Glossier sells is 20% off on This treat happens once a year, so we suggest you act fast before everything sells out. And if you're wondering what the new Gen G sheer matte lipsticks look like IRL, you've come to the right place. I tried all of the  shades out and here are my thoughts.
