I bought 4 tubes of Glossier Cloud Paint. Because I’m CRAZY to pay $18 for a 10ml of gel-cream blush!
Glossier Cloud Paint is easy, quick and natural – if you ask me to describe it in 3 words. I see them as cheek tints. You get plenty of freedom to dance with the creamy texture. Once you dot the cheeks, blend with your fingers or use a stripling brush. And you are more likely to see a sheer tint (that looks natural) & a healthy bit of a sheen. I love how it blends & able to layer the shades on top of one another. The best is that these do not mess with your foundation nor the powder.
BUT as far as the longevity & pigmentation is concerned, Glossier Cloud Paint definitely can be improved. I had to retouch, every 4 hours to hide ‘no-blush” face. And at these time I wish they were more pigmented.
Also, I just don’t get the price! I asked myself why would I want to spend $18 dollars for a tube of 10ml cheek tint when I can get a super pigmented Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color Blush by adding another $7!! So obviously Glossier Cloud Paints are over-priced!
Then what’s so special about Glossier Cloud Paints? Nothing really. Yes, they are squeezable, on-go, tap-tap finger-tip application, topped off with above average pigment! But certainly far from being a dream cream blush. In fact not even close.
If you like nothing but a “natural flush” or a soft glow, then the handbag-friendly tubes are just more than essential.
