Why We Love Glossier’s Generation G

Glossier’s Generation G lipsticks are a brand bestseller. Designed to give you that ‘just blotted’ effect with a hint of gentle colour, they deliver a soft matte finish that doesn't feel drying. Now, Glossier is expanding on the launch with three new suits-all shades. Here’s a bit more about them, as well as some expert application tips for a long-lasting finish.

The Generation G Background

Glossier has never been dictated to by trends. Instead, the brand has launched some of its most popular products based solely on customer requests. That includes its Generation G lipsticks, which have a new line-up of colours. Now, the brand is adding three sheer, suits-all shades ahead of a new season to offer a vaster colour palette.The texture, however, remains the same – here at SheerLuxe we like to think of it as a ‘blusher for the lips.' The subtle, yet matte finish is unrivalled. 

The New Shades Available

Glossier has launched three flattering shades in the Generation G range – ‘Fuzz’, ‘Malt’ and ‘Punch’ – with each one designed to flatter a natural lip tone. Designed to adapt to you, you'll find each shade looks different on everyone as your own natural lip shade shows through. Fuzz is a soft, rosy, taupe, Malt is a rich cinnamon brown and Punch is a brighter, rosier tone. Wearable for day, they can be dialled up for night time, too. Despite being a matte formula, it's easy to build upon and layer up and never feels drying or tight. Finally, extra points go to the ingredients. That includes wax matrix, which creates that smooth, cushion-y texture we all crave, and safflower oil which locks in hydration and maintains that flawless finish. There's also blue agave inside which seals water into the lips – hence why you never get that dry, tight feel.

Here at SheerLuxe we like to think of it as a ‘BLUSHER FOR THE LIPS.' Its subtle, yet matte finish is UNRIVALLED.
