March 18, 2017

Glossier Cloud Paint, the brand’s latest creation, is a gel-cream blush designed to be the most user-friendly cheek color in existence.

Packaged in a cute little plastic tube with matching caps, the Cloud Paint are hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben-free, fragrance-free and cruelty-free. Ingredients include:

Collagen to retains a high amount of water to hydrate and visually plump skin up with moisture.
Smooth-Gel System, a one-of-a-kind, lightweight gel-cream texture makes for silky, even application.
Blurring Powder Pigments to provide a soft, diffused, seamless finish—no more streakiness.

There are 4 shades available, which are inspired by gradient pink NY sunsets and optimized to work across a wide range of skin tones for a healthy, flushed-from-within glow. Dusk is a dusty rose nude; Puff is a bright cotton candy pink; Beam is a bright apricot; Haze is a magenta. All colors worked well against my NC20 skintone, with Puff and Beam being my favorites.

Though highly pigmented out of the tube, the Cloud Paints blended down to a much sheerer, almost stained look on my skin, making it super buildable and easy-to-use, even for beginners. The Cloud Paints also worked great with both fingers and brushes.

The only thing that could be better was the wear. I started noticing fading around the 4-5 hour mark and the color was pretty much gone after 9-10 hours.
