Over the years, beauty trends have ranged from faux freckles to the Kardashian contour. Earlier this year, Pinterest predicted that dewy skin and effortless beauty routines would be at the forefront of the mainstream beauty community. This trend is skinimalism, a.k.a that "no makeup" makeup look. In 2014, Glossier founder Emily Weiss was ahead of the curve and decided it was time to create a brand that specialized in beauty with a minimalist mindset.

With a lineup of products that help anyone achieve the model-off-duty look, Glossier has become one of the most well-known brands on the market. You've probably seen their millennial pink branding take over the shelves of your favorite Instagram influencers.

If you're wondering what the Glossier hype is all about, look no further. I've lined up 10 of their best products that are totally worth the splurge.

Balm Dotcom

The Balm Dotcom is one of Glossier’s cult classics, and with good reason. The hydrating lip balm is packed with natural moisturizers to nourish dry lips and skin. The original, unscented formula can double as a lip and skin balm, but there are also seven tinted flavors including rose, birthday, cherry, mint, coconut, mango and berry.

Lidstar Glistening Eye Glow

Lidstar’s motto is “less shadow, more glow.” According to reviews, this glistening eye color doesn’t budge — it lasts all day, even on oily lids. The blendable formula swipes on easily and comes in six shimmery shades.

Boy Brow Grooming Pomade

According to its reviews, Glossier's Boy Brow is the "gold standard for brow mascara." This brushable, creamy wax helps thicken, shape and groom brows into place for that Lily Collins-inspired look.

Cloud Paint Blush

Cloud Paint is a game-changer in any beauty routine, whether you wear it on bare skin, underneath foundation or layered with powder foundation. The gel-cream formula is sheer when you first apply it but blends seamlessly if you're looking to build up pigment. The 4.6-star rated Cloud Paint gives a gorgeous, flushed-from-within glow.

Glossier You Fragrance

Whether you're 18 or 48, people of all ages love Glossier's signature fragrance. With notes of bright, sparkling pink pepper, floral iris, woody ambrette seeds and Ambrox, Glossier claims that this scent was designed to feel open-ended — all it needs is you.

"It's not one of those perfumes you wear to become someone else. Mostly, it smells like you: soft, warm, familiar," the description reads.

Milky Jelly Cleanser

This pH-balanced daily cleanser contains five skin conditioners so your skin will feel soft and clean. One of its ingredients is Pro-Vitamin B5, which prevents water loss and helps retain moisture. One-fourth of the water contents are made up of rose water, which soothes skin and gives a slight fragrance.

According to one of its top reviews, the simple and light Milky Jelly Cleanser provides a "nice, refreshing cleanse while giving your skin a little moisture to keep you glowing."

Lip Gloss

This nourishing lip gloss is seriously worth every penny. Infused with Vitamin E and Jojoba oil, this gloss not only keeps lips soft, but moisturized. It's no wonder that Glossier's lip gloss — which comes in four shades, by the way — is a top-rated product.

Stretch Concealer

Glossier claims that the Stretch Concealer has "undetectable, flexible coverage." Stretch Concealer has a buildable, dewy formula that covers everything from dark circles to blemishes and redness.

Sydney from Lexington, Kentucky left one of its many five-star reviews, and with good reason:

"It blends seamlessly and its texture is just like your natural skin. It's light enough that it doesn't make my under eyes feel tight and tired, and it's so easy to tap around my redness. It looks like your skin but better!"

Invisible Shield Sunscreen

According to Glossier, Invisible Shield is the sunscreen for people who hate wearing sunscreen. This lightweight SPF 35 sunscreen has a transparent water-gel formula that applies like a serum and protects against harmful UV rays.

Lash Slick Mascara

Last but not least, we have the Lash Slick Mascara, which has been a cult classic since the beginning of Glossier. Its weightless, flexible formula enhances the look of your natural lashes. It’s also water-resistant, not waterproof — which means it'll last up to 12 hours but still easy to remove with warm water.

According to a clinical trial that a third party held, 97% of people between the ages of 18 and 69 said Lash Slick makes lashes look more defined. It's just science, at this point.
