My friend Catherine was visiting from San Francisco and we had our date at the Glossier showroom in TriBeCa. I didn't know Cloud Paint was all the craze thanks to the Academy awards (apparently, a few actresses wore it and looked gorgeous.) nor did I know I was working 7 minutes from the showroom that day. So that's how I came home with a Cloud Paint. I guess it doesn't matter that you live under a rock if you have trendy friends.
There are four shades available pretty much covering all basics - berry(Haze), pink(Puff), nude(Dusk), and peach(Beam). I was initially interested in getting Haze but ended up with Puff after seeing the gel-creme formula deepening as soon as it touches the skin. (Catherine got Haze which looked amazing on her flawless skin.)
As you see, Puff isn't the palest pink. The powder pink belt on the tube is the color you see when it's freshly squeezed out but the blushed pink cap is close to what it appears on the skin.
(I felt very silly posing like this, but for some reason, I was compelled to...)
Oh, by the way, I am also wearing Puff on my lips. I guess a deeper shade like Haze would work better, but it does give a velvety tint to my lips. It doesn't taste bad nor feels uncomfortable, so why not? (But, do yell at me if you see something I shouldn't eat from the ingredient list!)
(I must say I am more impressed to see how the PUR Bare It All 4-in-1 (reviewed) makes my skin look. Sure, my camera's beauty filter is amazing but the foundation's coverage is just phenomenal.)
Glossier Cloud Paint blends very well and would look natural on any skin tone. It's practically fool-proof and the tube is certainly convenient. Into my makeup bag, it goes for sure. The price is good especially now because they are running a promotion (2 for $30, $18 each). Did I think it was special? Not really. I like the pretty pink color of Puff, but it does seem a little too plain to me. You wouldn't be kicking yourself for ordering one sight unseen, however. Again, it's versatile and useful. Cloud Paint seems like something that would look different on everybody, too.
Have you tried Glossier Cloud Paint for yourself?
