No this isn’t the inside of a spaceship or some futuristic sci-fi movie. It’s the Glossier Pop-Up shop in Chicago.
For NYC and LA girls you already have permanent locations in your hometown, but for my Midwestern readers the shop will be in Chicago until the end of the month. I have been aware of the Glossier brand for several years as the brand was started by a female blogger who took her love for all things beauty and created her own makeup and skincare line to fill gaps she saw in the market. I have always been interested in Glossier’s products, and they all seem to receive rave reviews. However, as someone who likes to see, feel, and test out goods before buying, I never pulled the trigger and placed an order online.
Being able to see everything in person at the Pop-Up made me feel much more comfortable and excited about the products. My two favorite products were the milky jelly cleanser (definitely going to purchase this when my current face wash runs out) and the haloscope highlighter (so perfect for travel or even throwing in your purse to touch up throughout the day). While it seems like every product they launch immediately gains a cult following, those were the two products that really stuck out to me. Their price points are reasonable and the quality seems inline with the pricing (this is not La Mer or Chanel, but certainly better quality than drug store brands). All in all if you are interesting in Glossier, but have been on the fence I would recommend giving the products a go, plus you will be supporting a female entrepreneur which is always a good thing!
