This is not a drill: Glossier is at long last available at Sephora Canada. Starting today, you can stock up on cult-classics like Boy Brow volumizing eyebrow gel and Balm Dotcom lip balm (that Birthday cake flavour!) right on, the Sephora app, or at select Sephora stores. No duties or south-of-the border trips necessary — plus you’ll rack up all those precious Beauty Insider points. How great is that? To celebrate the occasion, we asked The Kit team to share their all time favourite Glossier go-to’s.

Glossier Boy Brow

“Boy Brow came out in 2015, and I would say it cemented Glossier’s reputation for innovative thinking and really good products that make you look groomed, not ‘done,’” says features director Rani Sheen. Inspired by men’s moustache waxes, the fluffy formula yields “the perfectly full yet low-key, slightly bushy brows of a particularly cool/pretty young dude with a band and a great vintage leather jacket,” says Sheen, who’s repurchased the product many times. “Every fresh tube feels like a promise.”

Glossier Cloud Paint

A buildable gel-cream blush, Cloud Paint delivers the softest, most believable flushed-from-within glow you ever did see. “I love how sheer it is on my skin,” says collab specialist Madeline Sarracini. “I’m always after some sort of dewy look and this totally achieves that for me. I also love to carry it with me and use it on my lips as well — one less thing in my bag!”

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser

“As Glossier’s first crowd-sourced product — the brand got over 400 comments from Into the Gloss (founder Emily Weiss’s blog) readers on their dream cleanser — it really holds up,” says shopping editor Renée Tse. Use it on its own as a super gentle face wash or as step two of a double cleansing regimen after removing makeup. “The milk-to-gel texture feels really nice against the skin and also features a cleansing agent found in contact lens solution, so you can get super close to the eye area without crying in pain.”

Glossier Lash Slick

This isn’t your false lash effect, go big or go home kind of mascara. True to Glossier’s “can’t believe it’s makeup” ethos, the weightless, flexible formula coats each lash in tiny fibres from root to tip to add length and definition sans clumps or stiffness. “It gives you the most beautiful, natural-looking lashes in the world,” says creative director Elena Viltovskaia. Also good to know: It’s smudge-resistant yet comes off like a dream.

Glossier Futuredew

This oil-serum hybrid vows to serve up an instant glow. The formula is nice and nourishing but not at all greasy and is meant to be used as the last step in your skin care routine: after sunscreen, but before makeup. “The dewiness is unreal,” says beauty & lifestyle director Katherine Lalancette. “It makes you look like you just got a facial. I especially love it as a primer: any makeup you apply over it appears more radiant and skin-like. The difference is astounding.”

Glossier Balm Dotcom

“I love Glossier’s Balm Dotcom because it keeps my lips moisturized for hours,” says Kit intern Claire Forth. The brand’s top-rated balm banks on natural emollients and antioxidants to deeply nourish and banish dryness. It’s available in Original, a clear and fragrance-free version, as well as an assortment of tinted and flavoured options. “I especially love the barely-there pink tint of Rose for busy days when I’m too lazy to put on much makeup — which is most days.”

Glossier You Eau de Parfum

The warm, soft mélange of pink pepper, powdery iris and musky ambrox melts into skin, smelling a little different on everyone. “I get compliments every time I wear it,” says Courtney Palmer, marketing specialist & project manager. “It’s intoxicating and intimate, a bit spicy, a bit woodsy and floral but still subtle. It’s the only perfume I’ve ever repurchased.”

Glossier Generation G lipstick

“Lately, Instagram keeps feeding me ads for Glossier’s Generation G lipstick in the shade Fuzz,” says production director Eden Boileau. It’s one of three new shades of the beloved lip enhancer launched in September. “Inspired by the trick of blotting your lipstick for a touch of colour, it looks like the definition of ‘your lips but better.’ Why? Because it’s a rosy/tawny/lip-y colour, but it’s also sheer and matte, so no opaque or shiny clues that you’re wearing lipstick. Thanks, Instagram, now I’m obsessed.”
