Most people I know are so excited that Glossier is coming to the UK! Well most people that love beauty anyway! I want to make sure you have lots of swatches to refer to before you make your choices. I am starting off with the Glossier Cloud Paints and I have all the shades here to show you. This is one of my fave Glossier products so I hope you enjoy this!
Liquid blush can be so beautiful and skin-flattering in the right formula, and this is a lovely formula.

Glossier Cloud Paints Features
- Pillowy, gel-cream formula
- Seamless, sheer, and buildable
- Inspired by gradient pink NYC sunsets
- Shades are optimised to work across a wide range of skin tones
- Gives a healthy, flushed-from-within glow
- Available in four shades
So this is more than just a liquid blush because it has a good dose of technology in the mix too:
- Collagen – retains a high amount of water to hydrate and visually plump skin up with moisture
- Smooth-Gel System – one-of-a-kind, lightweight gel-cream texture makes for silky, even application
- Blurring Powder Pigments – provide a soft, diffused, seamless finish without streaks
I absolutely adore the packaging of Glossier Cloud Paint. It is so simple and functional, but also super chic and kind of girly. It is the perfect balance I think. They are basically 10ml squeezy tubes of super pigmented colours and you need the tiniest bit to give the skin the most flattering flush of colour.
I pop a very small amount on to the tip of my finger and then straight on to the apples of my cheeks. I can either blend it out with my finger but my favourite way to blend it is with the Real Techniques Duo Fibre Cheek Brush.
Glossier Cloud Paints Swatches
There are four shades in the collection:
When you swatch these shades, you start to understand the whole ‘cloud paint’ vibe. It’s a beautiful, light, gel-like cushiony texture that melts into the skin and then blends without texture or weight. It really is like a cloud of sheer colour.
The Emily Blend
I love all the shades. At the launch event in London, Emily Weiss, creator of Glossier, said she often mixes Dusk and Beam to get her perfect shade. Here’s a look at that:
I love it, but I think Beam on it’s own is my absolute fave for every day.
