Beauty Brand Review: Glossier's Lidstar
The MODA Blog has had a long and storied past of reviewing Glossier products and at this point we're all kind of under the impression that the brand is relatively hit or miss (it's hard to ignore the "meh" quality of most of their products when the packaging is just so damn nice!). Being prone to dumping my hard earned cash on various millennial pink items, however, I of course purchased Glossier's new eyeshadow product, Lidstar, the second it came out. I purchased the shade "Cub," and was puzzled by what came in the mail.
Lidstar arrives in a medicinal-like testtube with sleek pink packaging and a doe foot applicator. The instagram barrage of photos and videos about the product convey it as being able to evenly apply with the fingers, but when I did that, it sort of disappeared. I know Glossier is not meant to be used for a full beat. That being said, I was for sure expecting more pigment out of the product.
I finally figured out that the best way to apply Lidstar for SOME detectable color is to layer it on and then blend with a dome brush and wait to dry. It also works as a primer if you are doing a look that incorporates the color of the Lidstar in question. I am still on the fence about it is indeed worth $20, but it is an interesting little tube to play with.
Still a little unsure about trying out a Glossier product? Use this code for 10% off your first order! Happy shopping :)
