When Glossier announced Cloud Paint, a cream blush that's the latest in their line of cult-favorite beauty products, at the beginning of March, our interests were piqued. The buzz around their other stellar products, like Boy Brow and Balm Dotcom, assured us that this product would be no exception.
The buzz rose to a roar when several celebrities, including Taraji P. Henson and Reese Witherspoon, debuted Cloud Paint at the Oscars in late February. Their perfectly flushed complexions had beauty-addicts clamoring to get their hands on one — or all four.
One thing Glossier does so well is creative, minimalistic packaging, and Cloud Paint is no exception. Designed to look like paint tubes, you simply squeeze a few dollops onto your fingers and blend into your cheekbones. The result is "a healthy, flushed-from-within glow." And like paint, you can mix any of the four sky-centric shades — Puff, Haze, Beam and Dusk — together to create the perfect-for-you tint.
However, Glossier can also be pricey, and we understand that budget beauty is often the way to go. But sometimes splurging is worth it — especially if the quality is guaranteed. Fortunately, the product reviews for Cloud Paint speak for themselves. With 65 reviews, clocking in at a 4.7 star average, it's safe to say shelling out $18 (or $30 for a set of two, with the code 2BLUSH) for a 0.33 fl. oz. tube is worth it.
