Everything to Buy During Glossier’s Cyber Monday Sale

Call your beauty-obsessed friends and Gen-Z daughters: Glossier’s sitewide mega-sale, which began on Black Friday, is still going strong. Now is the time to pick up some of their cult favorite, shelfie-ready skincare and makeup products.

Several of Glossier’s products have become personal staples — I use both their dewy concealer and no-flake mascara, for instance, over and over again. And there are plenty of products I’ve heard great things about from fellow beauty lovers, but haven’t gotten around to trying out yet myself. Below, a mix of both — everything I, and people whose taste in beauty and skincare I deeply trust, love from Glossier that’s currently on sale.

This product is described as “glossier skin a bottle,” because it instantly gives you a dewy, lit from within glow. I use this underneath concealer or makeup in all the areas I would normally put a highlighter: cheekbones, tip of the nose, cupids bow, and brow bone.

You get to pick three of their classic lip balms! If I were you, I would choose coconut (a clear option for days where you just want to hydrate your lips with a nice-tasting balm), rose (when you want a subtle, barely-there pink tint to your lips), and berry (the yummiest, prettiest, and boldest blackberry shade, which I wear on my cheeks sometimes as well).

This is a nice, rich-but-not-too-thick daytime or nighttime winter moisturizer. I particularly like using this on cold nights under makeup, as it does a particularly good job at priming the skin for concealer or foundation.

This gentle, gelatinous cleanser is great at gently removing the day from your skin —it melts away dirt and makeup—without stripping your natural oils.

Out of all of the glossier serums, this one is my favorite. It’s a lovely, nourishing hyaluronic acid serum that penetrates deep down into your pores to make sure your skin is nourished and supple. If you don’t have a hyaluronic acid in your routine yet, this is a great place to start.

I absolutely adore, adore, adore this eye makeup remover. It takes even the loudest, glossiest, hottest pink shadow off in a single swipe. I can’t live without it, and will be using this sale to stock up.

Makeup artist and podcast host Harriet Hadfield says this is her go to SPF. She loves it so much, and talks about it so much, that I’m considering subbing it in for my beloved Purito soon. And that says something, because I don’t like to let a day go by without using my Purito.

Seriously, every single one of these lipsticks is worth buying. They’re the perfect blotted, everyday wear smudge-y tint, that makes you look put together but not overly done. Adore! Can’t go wrong!

The latest launch from Glossier is this liquid liner, which is super opaque and actually super easy to use.

My holy grail mascara! This makes your lashes look natural, but better. It doesn’t flake or run throughout the day and it’s also not a pain to remove. I rebuy this product over and over again.

Glossier Lip Gloss

I’m partial to a clear gloss—I feel like it instantly makes my lips look hydrated, pouty, and dewy. This one from Glossier is great for exactly that!

This cult favorite eyebrow gel has a petite little spoolie that’s great at carefully brushing up hairs (no matter how sparse they may be) to create a bushy, youthful effect. I use it in clear on little-to-no makeup days and brown on nights out when I want a fuller brow.

These liquid blushes great for making your cheeks look youthful and sunny. I personally love “Puff,” a pretty pale pink, “Haze” a lovely berry shade, and “dusk” a dusty nude that I actually use all over as a bronzer.

This highlighter is my all time favorite ever. Seriously: ever. It gives a beautiful, believable sheen to the skin, and the balmy center makes sure you’re getting an extra dose of hydration. I can’t live without this highlighter.

Nor can I live without this hydrating, creamy concealer. It’s a pretty, light coverage, and also is exceptionally good at brightening up your undereyes and any red marks. Katie Jane Hughes buffs it all over her face as a solid tinted moisturizer. I, like Katie, use a foundation brush to swipe it across my whole face, and look dewy all day long.

These liquid eyeshadows are like a twinkley wash of color on the lids—great for when you want a fun yet subtle (and office appropriate) starry pop of color to your eyes. I especially love the dreamy lilac shade Lily.


For a more playful dose of color: these bright kohl liners! They’re waxy, bright, and very easy to use (a fun way, I’ve found, to do a colorful cateye). I love the shades “Nectar” (a pretty orange) and “Early Girl” (an eggshell-y blue).
