The Holiday Glossier Black Tie Set Has A Huge Suprise
Some holiday sets are miniaturized versions of a company’s best-selling products. Others are palettes with enough shades to make new looks every day of upcoming 365. The Glossier Black Tie Set, however, takes the cool-girl company into uncharted territory. The holiday set, which launches today, comes with three brand-new products and a new shade of their popular highlighter. Glossier is usually known for their skin-first-beauty-second mindset, but this set is all about makeup. It includes a lip gloss, a nail polish, an eye liner, and, as mentioned, a highlighter. Each are meant as minimalist Glossier party-prep must-haves.
The first-ever Glossier Lip Gloss is a translucent rose gel in the tube, but it’s actually clear when swiped on with the bendy, doe-foot applicator. On the lips the gloss is, of course, very glossier chic: A glass-like shine without any glitter, stickiness, or tackiness (in either sense of the word). The Glossier Black Tie Set comes with a cute composition notebook-style lookbook that also rounds-up the product ingredients, so it’s also worth mentioning the gloss has a hefty does of hydrating jojoba seed oil. If you were craving color plus a little shine and moisture, you could layer it right on over one of the Generation G lipsticks. Another Glossier first is the self-sharpening mechanical eye liner, the No. 1 Pencil in Graphite. The silky pigment goes on dark and smooth without applying any pressure at all, meaning it’s perfect for challenging waterline applications; on the opposite end of the pencil is a firm, round smudging sponge to smoke-out your handiwork.

The final brand new launch in the set is an orb-like bottle of nail polish in (drumroll, please) #glossierpink. I’m sure you know what that shade looks like, but I’ll go ahead and describe it as a creamy petal pink that’s just a skosh too bright to be considered a pastel. It matches basically everything Glossier, from its packaging to zip-up pouches. The final product in the Glossier Black Tie Set is the only one that’s not entirely new. If you are a fan of Haloscope, the company’s dew effect highlighter stick, you’ll love this new shade, Moonstone. It’s a grayish opal that gives skin a subtle silvery glow, and it’s so sheer that it even blends well on darker skin tones, which is uncommon for pearly shades.
