We’ve been fans of NYC beauty website Into the Gloss for years: There are tips and product stories, but what we really love is the Top Shelf feature, where we peek into the cosmetic kits of beautiful people and engage our envy muscles (You’re a 25-year-old model with a PhD and you live in a Fifth Avenue penthouse? Good for you.).
Almost three years ago, site founder Emily Weiss launched beauty brand Glossier (rhymes with dossier). What’s so special about it? Oh, it’s only all the stuff we normal women want but can’t find, ie inexpensive, clever and easy-to-use basics. We’re talking concealer that stretches with your skin, sheer matte lipsticks for casual everyday looks, brow pomade that thickens, fills and grooms without going flaky or stiff, and priming moisturizer that improves skin from the inside.

On July 18, we gave three cheers when the brand started selling its 25-strong range of skincare and makeup products in Canada (excluding Quebec). Prices range from $15 for a lipbalm to $43 for the Rich Priming Moisturizer, and there are some cool money-saving bundles, too. There are two shipping speeds: standard ($12 for seven to 10 business days) and expedited ($20 for two to three business days), with free standard shipping to those who purchase two or more items.
Here are the five products we can’t wait to try.
