Glossier, makers of makeup for people who already look good or those aspiring to look like the former, is having their highly-anticipated Black Friday sale. The brand rarely discounts their products — in fact, Black Friday is famously their only sale of the year — so there’s plenty of reason to shop now — whether it’s to stock up on Boy Brow or a few shades of Cloud Paint.
In addition to offering a sitewide discount of 20 percent, Glossier is also offering a bunch of Black Friday–exclusive sets, which are bundles of some of their bestselling products (and lots of our favorites). So whether you’ve yet to try the brand, or if you want to stock up on favorites — like Glossier FutureDew and Lash Slick — don’t dillydally. (If not for you, then for the teen in your life; Glossier also makes a very good holiday gift.) If you want more deals, check out the rest of our Black Friday sales.
Cloud Paint 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 near-endless amount of placement options (cheeks! eyes! lips!), and best of all, 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 that you can mix together to create a bespoke color or wear on its own.
Boy Brow drew a waiting list of 10,000 people after it first launched in 2015. “For a perfectly messy brow, I love to use it,” says Rio, who started using Boy Brow after Beyoncé’s makeup artist Sir John talked about it in an interview with Allure. “The spoolie is the perfect in-between size so that my brows look kept but nice and big,” she adds. And the tinted brow gel is also an easy way to make brows look fuller without actually dyeing them.
Glossier launched this beauty bag in March, and according to our friends at the Cut, it was designed to be “the Goldilocks carry-all for your beauty routine.” For Black Friday, you can get it stocked with some no-makeup-makeup essentials — Boy Brow, Lash Slick, and Cloud Paint — for under $50.
If you want to try a little bit of everything without fully committing to the whole Glossier package (or you’re already a superfan who wants TSA-friendly products0, this limited-edition essential edit is a nice place to start. It contains full-sized Lash Slick and Boy Brow, along with minis of the Balm Dotcom, the lightweight Priming Moisturizer, and the gentle Milky Jelly Cleanser.
Or if you really just want the essentials, you can get both Lash Slick and Boy Brow for $24 — a full 25 percent off the list price.
Glossier also launched its first retinol this year — a hybrid of pure retinol and sunflower-seed fatty acids, so you get all the benefits of a retinoid, like brighter and more even skin, without the side effect of sensitive, dry skin. (It’s also the first time we’ve seen it on sale.)
This highlighting stick comes in three shimmering shades, imparts skin with a dewy but not glittery sheen, and has a balmy center for an extra dose of hydration. Rio reportedly 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 says.
The “hydrating and long-lasting” lip balm is among the most beloved items of celebrities, cool teens, and our resident beauty expert, Rio Viera Newton, who uses it to achieve the (Zoom-appropriate) “elusive no-makeup makeup look.” (It’s also been a best-seller among our readers two Black Fridays in a row.)
You can also take 20 percent off the Balm Dotcom trio, which makes an excellent stocking stuffer.
Glossier’s lip gloss is incredibly shiny (all you need is one swipe per lip) and packed with nourishing ingredients like jojoba and vitamin E, which help keep lips soft and moisturized. All three shades are on sale, including holographic, which has an opalescent shimmer that gives us big ’90-mall vibes.
Future Dew has become a beloved member of the Glossier lineup, thanks to its ability to make skin look lit from within without glitter or greasy-looking shine. It’s also one of the most versatile, because it can be applied all over or wherever you want a little pop of shine.
This orange-blossom scented dry oil mist contains a blend of antioxidant-rich sunflower, and grape-seed and oat oils, which help to nourish and moisturize dry skin. Unlike other body oils, which require ample time to dry and soak into the skin, this one melts in almost immediately and doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind.
Glossier You is formulated to smell like “you, but better,” and has notes of musk, ambrette, and sparkling pink pepper. (Our beauty columnist Rio described it as “warm, woody, and clean with almost no floral or fruity notes.”) And in this Black Friday set, it’s paired with Glossier’s quick-to-absorb hand cream.
This pink Glossier hoodie has been spotted on Timothée Chalamet, and it can be yours for just $36.
