Review | Glossier Generation G Lipstick
There's a slew of pouts lined with neurosurgeon-level accuracy everywhere we turn. I'm not high maintenance and I certainly don't expect my lipstick to be. Enter Generation G. This foolproof sheer matte lipstick dares to compare itself to the perfect cherry popsicle stain and turn that into a covetable lipstick. No one masters the "pretty on accident" look like Glossier. Generation G comes in four shades that will flatter everyone from the most porcelain to the deepest umber. Finally.
Brick by brick
As you can tell from the swatches, each shade is highly buildable, so don't be afraid to lay it on! You could even apply them without a mirror should you be extra superstitious. The sheerest color in this collection is Like. It's a very light pink that'll give you a gentle tint— I use this to give my pigmented lips an even, subversive look. Tip: blend the lip line with your finger after applying from the tube the world's easiest groomed look. Scam them all!
Where is this going?
Nowhere. This lipstick is fully committed to staying on your lips. A generous application of Like lasted a whole work day, two cups of coffee, an over-dressed salad, nail biting while playing a scratch-off, several hard candies, and Mercury being in retrograde. Sigh.
I love each of you the same
But, if I had to pick, Crush is the easiest shade to take you from 9am to 9pm, just add a few extra swipes on your way out of the office.
There's something magnetic about strategic imprecision. With Generation G, it's an art form.
