Glossier Drops a Reformulated Generation G–Is It Worth the Repurchase?
If there is one makeup item I cannot live without, whether I am late to my morning class or heading out for a nice dinner in the city, it’s my Generation G lipstick from Glossier. And when I heard that Glossier came out with a reformulated version of the original cult favorite product, I had to see how they could make this already amazing lipstick even better!
The redesign Gen G was prompted by complaints that the product’s existing packaging often cracked, making it easier for the cap to fall off and dry out the lipstick–or worse, get product all over the inside of your pocket/pencil case/makeup pouch! Gen G has also been reformulated to make it harder for the product to crack or fall out of the tube–a common problem with the older model.
While I was missing my family and wallowing in self-pity on Black Friday, I was immediately cured with the notification that my package had come in from Glossier. I immediately tore open my box and popped open my new Gen G lipstick.
The redesign is so sleek and compact–an effort on Glossier’s behalf to minimize the drying out of the product. It has such a luxurious essence; it feels like you’re not just putting on a tinted lip balm, but a special occasion lipstick. As for how it feels, it is just the same texture that we all know and love, but this time the actual bullet is chunkier for an easier, more effortless application.
For those who are not familiar with Gen G, it gives you that effortless, I woke up like this aesthetic. The buildable product has a matte yet moisturizing finish. If you’re just not feeling an ultra bold lip moment or makeup isn’t really you’re thing, Gen G is the perfect middle ground and allows you to determine just how much color you want to show and just how bold you want to be.
You will definitely catch me in the Quad using my new Gen G lipstick (in shade Crush) every single day until finals.
