Glossier Play Glitter Gelée
Among the seemingly endless scroll of memes and videos of kittens doing kitten things, you'd find a folder of makeup inspiration in the "Saved" tab of my Instagram. Of those photos, you'd see glitter cat eyes that I swore I'd try . . . someday.
That day came today, when I got my hands on the Glitter Gelée and Detailer($22), a pair by Glossier's sister brand, Glossier Play. To create my sparkling wings, I first drew in my typical ones with a black, inky eyeliner pen. Then, I dipped the silicone tool into the pot of sparkling goop. The Gelée had a bouncy texture and was easy to scoop with the spatula. I then used short strokes to sweep the gel across the wings I'd drawn on.
I found that the combination of the silicone angled tip and the Gelée's texture — which was not sticky but clung onto the areas in which it was applied — allowed me to maneuver the flecks of foil exactly where I wanted them. The end result was a perfectly drawn, shimmering cat eye — one that didn't move all day.
Sure, neither silicone spatulas nor glitter gels are new to the beauty scene, but Glossier made it easy to get both in one place. See the duo in action, ahead.
