Perhaps the most lusted after beauty brand of the moment, Glossier will now be available to buy in the UK. Glossier makeup and Glossier skincare products have a huge following, including Dame Helen Mirren, who used the products to create a recent red carpet look.

Glossier was first launched in 2014 off the back of beauty blog and have since achieved cult status among beauty editor and beauty lovers alike. The fact it has over 771,000 followers on Instagram is testament to this.

The brand prides itself in doing beauty differently. It believes beauty should be ‘fun, easy, imperfect, and personal'.
