But while we all love the sound of a lip tint that doubles as a blush, or a tinted moisturiser that blesses us with all the coverage of our favourite foundation, we’ll admit that we were sceptical when we heard that Glossier were launching a lip and eye duo by the name of Bubblewrap.
From glow-bestowing highlighter sticks, to contour palettes that promise all the face definition you could wish for, multitasking beauty products have revolutionised the way we wear our makeup.
We’ve been not-so-patiently waiting on an eye product from the skincare giant for a while now, and clearly other Glossier devotees have too, as the brand stated that this has been their No.1 most-requested skincare product EVER.
So what’s the deal? Well, for starters, the new product is designed around the fact that the skin around our eyes and lips is the most delicate on our face, which calls for extra special “handle with care” treatment.
That comes in the form of super-powered ingredients aimed at “plumping” the skin, such as hyaluronic acid, squalane and avocado oil that will keep your skin feeling soft and nourished.
That’s not all. Get ready to banish those pesky dark shadows, thanks to the addition of the ultra brightening, antioxidant-rich blueberry extract.
Unlike many other face creams, Bubblewrap’s water-in-oil emulsion has a featherweight texture that dries super quickly and leaves skin feeling fresh and hydrated.
And, as we’ve come to expect from clean skincare these days, Bubblewrap is hypoallergenic, cruelty free, vegan and safe for those of us who wear contact lenses.
So how do you use this new skincare wonder? Easily, as it turns out. The idea is that you use Bubblewrap twice a day to create a smooth makeup base, but we reckon that you could top up throughout the day when you need to reapply.
If the prospect of seeing Glossier’s pretty pink packaging again wasn’t enough to get you excited, stay tuned, because the brand have also announced that they’re relaunching all three of their super serums this spring: Super Pure, Super Bounce, and Super Glow.
Just enough time to make space on our bathroom shelves then…
