On Cloud Nine With Glossier Cloud Paint

On Cloud Nine With Glossier Cloud Paint

My go-to look for the summer has been all about being natural. I'm a little tired of heavy eyeshadow and lipstick, dark eyeliner, and most of all, caked on blush. Enter Glossier Cloud Paint. I've been eyeing the shades ever since this product was released a few months ago, and I finally decided to treat myself to two, Dusk and Haze. 

Dusk is a neutral, dark nude with slight peach and brown undertones. This shade is basically your perfect nude lipstick in cream blush form. It's been my day-to-day cheek obsession because of the versatility of the color. Wearing it with a plain lip and a swipe of mascara and concealer masters the ‘I woke up like this’ flawlessness; using it to balance out a shimmery or smoky eye is the perfect bold pair. 

Haze is the wildcard that works for the darker end of the skin spectrum (I would love to see Glossier expand this range with darker shades — more on that later). It's a deep pink/purple that has hints of magenta and rose. On my light-medium, yellow-based skin, it shows up as a rosy flush. My preferred way of sporting it is with minimal distractions — long lashes, bare lips, smooth skin. And a bright, pearly highlight. (May I suggest Becca Moonstone?)

The tubes were a lot smaller than I expected, but when I started applying the shades I realized that a teeny, tiny bit goes an incredibly long way. For Haze, especially. Dusk, because it's a lighter shade, can be applied a little more liberally, but Haze requires no more than a crumb-sized dot. Use as little as possible to begin, and if you feel like you want to build up more color, go in and add thin layers. 

What I love most about Cloud Paint — besides the long lasting properties, beautiful shades, and easy to use tubes — is how natural they look after wearing for a few hours. I mentioned this as something I love about the Glossier Stretch Concealer (review here), and I think these cream blushes do an even better job. Minutes after applying them, the color looks beautiful and the product sits on the skin nicely. After a few hours, however, the product starts to mesh with your skin and melt into your face so that it looks like a seamless part of your natural skin. For someone looking for a no-makeup-makeup look, this is the way to go. 

Finally, my one complaint. Glossier currently only has four shades in the Cloud Paint collection, which is most definitely not enough to satisfy all skin tones. I would love to see an expansion to the shades offered. Seeing as Glossier has a deeper range of colors in their concealer and foundation options, I am hopeful they will release more Cloud Paint shades in the future.

  2. First things first, those photos are so cute! I really need to try more from Glossier, tbh, and these Cloud Paints are on the top of my list. Do you apply these with your fingers or do you use a brush or sponge? Just curious what gives the most seamless application. Thanks so much for sharing, Cassie. :)

    1. Thank you so much! The Cloud Paint blushes are definitely my favorite Glossier product so far. I like applying them with my fingers! It's easier and has a more natural effect. :)
