Before and after Lash Slick! I’m also wearing Perfecting Skin Tint in Medium, Boy Brow in Brown, Stretch Concealer in Medium, Wowder in Light/Medium, Cloud Paint in Dusk and Generation G in Leo.
Disclosure: I am a Glossier Rep, and I received this product as a gift from Glossier. All opinions are my own, and I am not required to post about the brand or its products at any time on any of my digital platforms.
I always thought that, if Glossier were to create a mascara, I wouldn’t be into it. Even when the rest of my makeup looks as natural as can be, I love a high-impact lash–and Glossier isn’t known for high impact makeup. Glossier is known for “no-makeup” makeup and killer skincare. After all, the motto is “Skin first. Makeup second.”
Normally, I’m all about no-makeup makeup–but not when it comes to my lashes. The bigger, the better.
So, when Lash Slick arrived in the mail, it took me by surprise. I had just picked up a new mascara during Sephora’s VIB sale that was already underperforming, and after years of frustration with mascara (I’ve never bought the same one twice), I just didn’t feel I was in the market for another new one. All the formulas I’ve tried–and trust me, there’s been a lot–either look clumpy and unnatural, don’t do the job or–most often–look great upon application, but end up smudged all over my under-eye in 20 minutes. I thought it was just me.
It turns out, per Into The Gloss (Glossier’s “editorial arm”), that many makeup users struggled to find the perfect mascara. That is, until ITG took it upon themselves to develop the perfect mascara.
More than 240 trial formulas later, Glossier finally launched Lash Slick. I think the name suits this formula very well.
As a Glossier Rep, I received this mascara a few days before the official launch, so I’ve been wearing it for a while now, and I’m already so in love.
It’s full of tiny fibers that cling to your lashes, making them look long, fluttery (like, really fluttery) and wispy. Vegan biotin and natural polymers ensure healthy, shiny lashes with every use. The best part? After a long day of work in NYC that began with a seasonal allergy attack (i.e., itchy, irritated, watery eyes), there was absolutely no smudging or flaking. I couldn’t believe it!
If, like me, you’re guilty of a self-indulgent cry while watching military homecoming videos (it’s therapeutic), Lash Slick is your holy grail mascara. It quickly became mine, and I can’t see myself reaching for a different one for everyday use.
Let’s talk about the wand. It’s sleek with plastic (or are they rubber?) teeth; it’s not the fluffy bristle kind, is what I’m trying to say–thankfully! I do not like those kinds of wands. They’re way too bulky, so I always end up getting mascara everywhere but my lashes, or worse–jabbing myself in the eye. So painful!
Lash Slick is easy to use, and a second coat never causes lashes to stick together. The wand makes precise application nearly effortless; every lash is coated with fiber-filled mascara, and the results looks incredibly natural–and so stunning!
I should also mention that removal is ridiculously easy, too. Instead of running down your face, Lash Slick comes off in tiny clumps–just add warm water! Before washing my face, I remove all my makeup except the mascara, then massage Glossier’s Milky Jelly into my skin. Lash Slick breaks down and is easily wiped away!
