I bought 4 tubes of Glossier Cloud Paint. Why? because I’m CRAZY to pay $18 for a 10ml of gel-cream blush!
Glossier Cloud Paint are easy, quick and natural – if you ask me to describe 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 fingers or using a stripling brush. And (whoa) -> you are more likely to see a sheer tint that looks natural, healthy bit of a sheen. I love the blendability & been able to layer the shades on top of one another. The best is that these do not mess with your foundation nor the powder.
However, as far as the longevity & pigmentation 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 pricing of Glossier products. I asked myself why would I want to spend $18 dollars for 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! Even though these are squeezable, on-go, tap-tap finger-tip application, topped off with above average pigment!
Then what’s so special about Glossier Cloud Paints? Nothing really. They are not the dream cream blushes in the market. In fact not even close. But if you are like me; trying to achieve a “natural flush” or a soft glow, the handbag-friendly tubes are just more than essential.
