What Glossier’s Reformulated Generation G Lipsticks Looks Like on 3 Skin Tones
Today, Glossier rereleased its Generation G lipsticks ($18) – the sheer (but buildable) matte lip colors. The cult-favorite brand has chosen to keep its original six shades but is changing aspects of the lipsticks themselves, like their texture and casing. The reformulation came in response to customer feedback that the packaging was flawed and the lipsticks were drying, according to Vogue. So the brand amped up the bullet to have an ultracreamy (“moisturizing” is the word that our team has been throwing around) formula with a more sturdy, heavyweight casing. Below are swatches on three of our editors. The shades go in the following order (from elbow to wrist): Jam (blackberry), Like (cool, light pink), Leo (cool brown), Crush (raspberry pink), Zip (bright red), and Cake (peach).
