But I also want to dig a little deeper into the cult of glossier, which comes from more than just the products themselves. It's a vibe. It's hard to articulate. There is an element of being a part of a cool and exclusive club, that somehow can include everyone. There is no you can't sit with us - there is only, sit with us and let's talk for 45 minutes about pink cashmere and the scientific properties of hyaluronic acid molecules. Then I will teach you about this cool indie artist.
That may just be what happens when a company blossoms through the sweat, vibes and energy of a particularly rad and brilliant woman. She is tiny, delicate, gorgeous but also funny. She has built a team of interesting, brilliant women and men with resume items like prada campaigns, ballerina and ivy league business school. Each and everyone is united by a desire to change the beauty industry. Not just the playful packaging and hardcore science of K-beauty, but a uniquely feminist almost hippy beating hear of self love and self care. They make products out of real crystals. They show pores in their pictures, and they make you loathe any product that would dare suggest that human skin should be otherwise.
I screenshot this image from Emily Weiss awhile back because I think it marks the moment in time when I truly felt like I wanted to be an ambassador for this brand.
And if you don't believe me that Glossier is changing the world, check out Fast Company which just ranked them amongst the top 50 most innovative companies in the world.
I aspire to be proud of who I am today. That doesn't make me love beauty products any less - it just makes me want to spend my hard earned money on the ones that don't try to make me feel shitty to get me to buy things.
Sad news - there is no eye shadow palette that is really going to turn things around for you.
You know what might though?
Looking at yourself in the fabled mirror at the new Glossier location. The one that simply says....
