The fun lasts now through Nov. 30 so be sure to snatch what you can before it’s over!

Here are some fan-favorite products that should definitely be on your radar:


Cloud Paint is so natural it’ll have people wondering, “Are they really wearing blush?” If you’re looking to add a healthy flush of color to your cheeks, this is for you!


Promising review: “Storm, Dawn, and Haze look amazing on dark skin, very natural and easy to blend. The lighter colors (Dusk, Puff, and Beam) take a while to build up but can look really pretty too. Dusk runs the risk of looking ashy, just FYI! There’s a learning curb to applying this product- you have to have your technique down to get it looking nice. It’s easy to over-apply, especially with the darker colors. I wear Glossier skin tint in Rich, and mainly wear Dawn!” —PowpiiPrice: $13.50 (originally $18; available in six shades)


Solution may be a really vague name for a chemical exfoliator, but don’t let that deter you. The ingredient lineup is simply 🙌🏾. It’s got salicylic, glycolic, and lactic acids, plus a bunch of clean ingredients that are great for erasing acne scars but are [admittedly] hard to pronounce. Maybe “solution” was a good name after all.


Promising review: “Although results may be different for everyone, this has worked wonders for my skin. I had been doing my skincare like normal but it really just wasn’t doing much. Until I found this! Even after just two days, half of my bumps and pimples on my face were gone! It is quite strong though so I would recommend starting with using it one to two days a week and working your way up. Personally, I found that three times a week has worked best for me.” —Siena R.Price: $18 (originally $24)Still not convinced that this cult-favorite product is worth the money? Read this article on Glossier’s Solution to learn why it definitely is.


Stretch Concealer blurs the imperfections you don’t want and keep the ones you love.


Promising review: “LOVE this concealer. As I don’t wear foundation at all, I just dub away ‘imperfections’ or trouble areas with this. At first, I thought that I wouldn’t like it because I was too used to more runny concealer formulas but I love it. It presses beautifully into the skin without showing up, and with its consistency, it’s absolutely build-able for more problematic spots. I apply it with a flat brush and then press it in the skin with my fingers. A little goes a long way too. Can’t recommend it enough.” —DanPrice: $13.50 (originally $18; available in 12 shades)


The Make Up Set most likely birthed ChapStick and mascara Twitter. Naturally coiffed brows, defined lashes, and a dab of color are key to nailing that on-the-go runway model look that never goes out of style.


Promising review: “I spent ages deciding if I would purchase this set, and was particularly apprehensive about the cloud paint but I am so glad that I went for it! This is my second purchase of Boy Brow in clear. It’s the perfect ‘my-eyebrows-but-better’ look. I’ve tried other brow products like this and none have been as good. The Lash Slick is so much better than I thought it would be (and I already thought it would be good) it gives you a perfectly natural-looking finish, again, your eyelashes but better. Perfect for minimalists. I spent ages looking into best Cloud Paint shade for my skin tone (I am fair with pink undertones) I went with ‘Puff’ in the end. I was very pleasantly surprised when I put it on, it looks so natural and not at all as pink as I thought it would be. Love it. You do only need a tiny bit.” —RachelPrice: $37.50 (value of $50)


Boy Brow channels the spirit of Cara Delevingne’s brows and transplants them right onto your face with minimal struggle on your part. Just a few brush swipes of the creamy wax formula is all it takes.


Promising review: “I wore this to a festival and it stayed on through infinite sweat there. After the festival, I got hit by a car on the side of the road and after getting pulled out from under a car and going to the hospital the only intact part of my makeup when I left the hospital was this brow product.” —MaddyPrice: $9 (originally $12; available in five colors)And here’s more details on why one BuzzFeed writer never leaves home without wearing Boy Brow.


Balm Dotcom will give your lips some TLC before they C-H-I-P. Masks and cold weather are not playing with ya’ll. Stay ready so you don’t have to get ready with this antioxidant-rich lip balm.


Promising review: “The hype is well-deserved, I tried this product two years ago and I’ve loved it ever since. I always have at least one more with me! I have extremely dry skin and I get eczema patches quite often. While this balm can’t cure eczema I like to put a layer on any spots before I shower to keep from drying my skin out more. I love to use this product anywhere that feels dry and this balm is sure to hydrate! the amazing smells are an added bonus! I love coconut and mint!” —MadiPrice: $9 (originally $12; available in nine shades)


Invisible Shield is literally that: invisible. Listen up and listen good, *whispers* your skincare routine is about as effective as using water to put out a grease fire when you don’t wear sunscreen. Google, “before and after sunscreen,” and you’ll be relieved this product exists. It’s a chemical sunscreen aka dark skin-friendly.


Promising review: “I have been looking for ages for a face sunscreen for my medium-to-dark skin that doesn’t leave a white cast and also is kind to my very sensitive skin and dehydrated skin and I’ve finally found it! The packaging is a little plasticky for the price-point (I’m a bit worried the pump will break because it doesn’t seem that sturdy) but the actual product is a dream. It doesn’t leave a cast on my skin, doesn’t feel like it’s clogging my pores, hasn’t made me react; it smells nice and clean and has a really nice gel-like texture. I’m really impressed and will be trying more Glossier stuff now, too!” —PawanPrice: $18.75 (originally $25)


Super Pure features the skincare ingredient of the moment: niacinamide. In typical Glossier fashion, this product zaps ⚡️ the zits clear off your face without drying out the skin. Yes, you read that correctly, an acne treatment that won’t leave your skin feeling like the Sahara.


Promising review: “I was at the dentist the other day and the first thing she said when I sat down was “Oh wow your skin is SO nice!” I have never felt so validated in a purchase before. I have been using this every night now for about a month and a half and it has made my skin so clear and really reduced oil production in my T-Zone. Finally, I am able to wear thicker moisturizers now for my combo skin without clogging pores! I could not possibly recommend any product more highly for changing my skin to the point where everyone now notices and I no longer use any foundation. It also lasts very long — I am barely through one-third of the bottle and I use it every night and sometimes twice a day.” —BiancaPrice: $21 (originally $28)


The Core Lip Collection is the essential starter kit for the perfect pout: Balm Dotcom, Lip Gloss, and Generation G. There will never be a day when you don’t need lip balm, lip gloss will always be poppin, and lipsticks are so much fun. You literally can’t go wrong with this set.


Bonus: you can customize your lip collection!Promising review: “So great that this is a set, you get three totally different lip products at a discounted price and they’re all worth it. I purchased the limited edition Wild Fig balm dotcom, clear gloss and generation G in shade Cake. The balm is super moisturizing and smells great!! The gloss gives your lips the perfect shine and it’s not too sticky. The generation G lipstick is amazing, in my opinion, because it’s not too pigmented so it gives your lips just the right amount of color!” —LoriPrice: $33 (value of $44)


Haloscope effortlessly illuminates your lovely features because newsflash: the forced powdery IG highlight is so 2013. This oil-based stick hydrates your skin. Apply it and know that dew radiating off of your cheekbones is all you (plus the help of some infused crystals 🔮).


Promising review: “I’ve been over the super blinding, heavy highlighters for a while, I wanted something more natural-looking. This baby is beautiful! It gives a very wet, glass, lit from within glow. I love using it with or without a full face of makeup on, I don’t find that it lifts up my foundation and I don’t find it to be greasy. It’s super easy to apply and blend, I just use my fingers or a damp sponge. A+++.” —Chelsey W.Price: $16.50 (originally $22; available in three colors)


Priming moisturizer cuts down on the number of products you’re piling onto your pores. Cake is NOT fun.


Promising review: “Perfect amount of hydration for combo skin. Absorbs into skin quickly, which is perfect if you are impatient when getting ready in the morning like me. It didn’t weigh down my skin and kept it perfectly hydrated through an insanely long Upstate NY winter. I didn’t know until this product that it was possible for my skin to not hurt when a -10 wind chill slaps me in the face.” —LegssPrice: $16.50 (originally $22)


The Three-Step Skincare Routine should already be in your bathroom, to keep it a stack. Glossier is all about skin, so you know their cleanser, moisturizer, and lip balm are 🔥🔥🔥.


The Milky Jelly Cleanser is pH balanced, meaning it gets rid of oil and dirt without stripping your skin. If you have reddish skin, this moisturizer is designed to help with that. Balm Dotcom is amazing and it comes in nine colors.Promising review: “When it comes to skincare, I would say that I’m someone who keeps it simple and easy. Having to complete multiple steps or apply various creams and gels is a no-go for me. Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser is everything I appreciate in a good cleanser all in ONE bottle. There is no foaming action or aggressive perfume scent. It’s light, smooth, gentle and honestly just nice on the skin. It’s absolutely perfect for removing eye makeup- no tears, no irritation! I could go on and on, but trust me when I say this cleanser will leave you feeling so fresh and glowing that you won’t be able to go back to whatever is sitting on your bathroom counter! As for the priming moisturizer, I was blown away by the dewy glow and soft smooth finish. I have dry/oily skin, so I need something to lock in moisture without all the extra shine. THIS IS IT. And again, a little goes a long way, plus it’s buildable to suit your preference. Glossier you’re a game-changer for this one! Balm DotCom in “Berry” is such a blessing. I swear when I first swiped this deliciousness on my lips I instantly thought it taste and smells like strawberry Jell-O! YES, YOU SHOULD TREAT YOURSELF AND BUY THE SET! You’re welcome 😉” —AshPrice: $39 (value of $52)
