If you, like us, have been a Glossier fan for years now, you’ll know its sales are few and far between. Typically, we have to wait for Black Friday or Cyber Monday to score a discount on its lash-lengthening mascara or surprisingly powerful makeup remover, which is why we were especially delighted to find everything 20 percent off today as part of its Friends of Glossier sale. With code FOG22, you can put that discount toward everything from eyebrow gel to fragrance along with a ton of favorites we’ve written about before. To help you shop this rare event, we rounded up all the Glossier products that we’ve tried ourselves or that experts have recommended to us. Below are 18 cult-favorite items to snag before the sale ends on May 31.

Glossier’s Cloud Paint blush — a favorite of our beauty columnist, Rio Viera-Newton — is one of those multitasking beauty products that works for just about everyone because there are very few ways to mess it up. It has a nearly endless amount of placement options (cheeks! eyes! lips!), and best of all, it can be easily applied with your fingers. The gel-cream consistency makes it easy to achieve a soft, diffused wash of color, and unlike lots of other cream formulas, it actually stays on. Cloud paint comes in eight sunset-colored shades you can mix together to create a bespoke color or wear on its own.

“Affordable and effective, this Glossier perfume is one of the best perfumes on the market for that ‘enhancing your natural scent’ vibe,” promises Rio, who notes the fragrance mostly contains “warm, woody, and clean” notes. The travel-friendly solid is also on sale.

Futuredew has become a beloved member of the Glossier lineup thanks to the serum’s ability to make skin look lit from within without glitter or greasy-looking shine. It’s also one of the most efficient because it can be applied all over or simply wherever you want a little pop of shine.

This orange-blossom-scented dry oil mist contains a blend of antioxidant-rich sunflower, grape-seed, and oat oils, which help to nourish and moisturize dry skin. Unlike other body oils, which take time to dry and soak into the skin, this one melts in almost immediately and doesn’t leave a sticky residue.

Formulated to make it look as though you have lash extensions in just a few swipes, this mascara coats lashes from root to tip with little fibers that are locked into place with flexible polymers. It’s lengthening, curling, and sculpting and won’t flake or smudge.

Glossier Lip Gloss

Glossier’s lip gloss is incredibly shiny (all you need is one swipe per lip) and packed with nourishing ingredients such as jojoba and vitamin E, which help keep lips soft and moisturized. All four shades are on sale, including the new, limited-edition gold, which gives your lips a shimmery finish.

This highlighting stick comes in three shades, all of which give your skin a dewy (but not glittery) sheen, and has a balmy center for an extra dose of hydration. Rio says she can’t live without it and wears it all over her face. “When it comes to daytime makeup, this product is one of my go-tos and certainly one of my most-used ‘natural’ highlighters,” she writes.

This customizable trio deal lets you pick any three of Glossier’s eight classic lip balms, which have been recommended to us by multiple celebrities, cool teens, and Rio again. If you need help choosing, Rio recommends 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 you can even wear on your cheeks as well). You can shop the lip balms individually for $10, down from $12 normally.

This is a nice, rich but not too thick daytime or nighttime moisturizer. It’s particularly good to use on nights out under makeup as it does a good job 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.

If you don’t have hyaluronic acid in your routine yet, Super Bounce is a great place to start. It’s a nourishing hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 serum that penetrates deep into your pores to make sure your skin is nourished and supple.

This eye-makeup remover takes even the loudest, glossiest, hottest pink shadow off in a single pass — and this size is carry-on friendly.

This sunscreen is the go-to SPF of beauty YouTuber Madelynn De La Rosa, makeup artist Harriet Hadfield, and a handful of Strategist staffers, who all love that the transparent formula goes on completely clear.

This matte lipstick gives a perfect blotted, smudgy tint that makes you look put together but not overly done.

Another everyday essential, Glossier’s liquid liner with a brush tip is super-opaque and super-easy to use.

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.

Glossier’s hydrating, creamy concealer is a pretty, light-coverage concealer that’s exceptionally good at brightening up your under eyes and any red marks. Katie Jane Hughes buffs it all over her face as a solid tinted moisturizer.

Finally, these liquid eye shadows give a twinkly wash of color to your lids — great for when you want a fun yet subtle starry pop of color over your eyes. The eye shadow comes in eight shades including this lilac one, which is called Lily and is another favorite of Rio’s.
