The Best of Glossier Cloud Paints

Glossier Haze Cloud Paint
Glossier Haze Cloud Paint

Glossier Cloud Paint ($18.00 for 0.33 oz.) is supposed to have a “pillowy, gel-cream” texture that is “seamless, sheer, and buildable” that is designed to be applied with fingertips to the cheeks for a “healthy, flushed-from-within-glow.” Their strength is in their airy, gel-like texture that’s ultra-lightweight but more substantial than a runnier, watery cheek color, so I felt like it was a bit easier to spread the color onto my cheek area and get an even application of color early on. They were easy to work with on bare skin, and the texture worked well without any makeup as it sat naturally on the skin and let my natural skin texture and finish come through.

They worked fairly well over foundation but creamier foundations that don’t set as well did not seem to play as well with it as some (I had great results layering the formula over Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea but less stellar results over ColourPop’s No Filter Foundation). I liked application with fingertips or a stippling brush, but I tend to prefer fingertip application as it seems to allow me to cover a greater area with less possibility of disturbing my base products, though for blending more dried down color, a brush is better.

The coverage was as described–sheer and buildable–but they’re going to be best suited for someone who prefers the look of a cheek stain over more opaque or pigmented color. They absolutely had a natural finish; they did not feel tacky after application, but they never looked flat or matte to me. They’re buildable with the respect of getting slightly more coverage and a deeper, less watercolor-esque application with two to three layers. I preferred to build up in layers for best improvement in coverage as applying more seemed to end up with product across a larger area than more intense coverage. The blushes lasted between seven and nine hours on me.

I didn’t love the packaging, because I felt like too often a small squeeze pushed out more product than necessary and often seemed to squeeze a little more out even after I had released pressure.

Puff

Glossier Puff Cloud Paint ($18.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It had sheer, buildable pigmentation–up to mostly opaque when applied in three layers–that sat beautifully on my skin. Though the blush wasn’t shimmery, it appeared to have a natural finish and let my skin shine through. I was impressed by how well the color sat on bare skin and didn’t emphasize my pores or skin texture. The consistency was lightweight, thin and airy with a watery-gel feel to the touch, which made it easy to spread and hard to overdo. It lasted nicely on my cheeks for eight hours before I noticed any fading.

Haze

Glossier Haze Cloud Paint ($18.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a rich berry with cool, blue undertones and a natural finish. Don’t let the vibrancy and depth of the shade scare you, if you’re not one for intense blush, because the formula is designed to be sheer and sheer it was. The color coverage was sheer but buildable, so if one wanted more intense and more opaque coverage, three layers put me in that range. The cream blush had a more liquid-like texture–like a watery gel–that spread nicely across my skin and didn’t lift up my base products (and also sat well on bare skin). This shade wore well for nine hours before starting to fade a bit.

Dusk

Glossier Dusk Cloud Paint ($18.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a soft brown with warm, rosy undertones and a natural-matte finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer, buildable color payoff that was easy to work with, as it layered beautifully to mostly opaque coverage with three layers. The consistency was thinner but still a bit gel-like as it wasn’t as thin as pure water would feel. I squeezed the smallest amount out of the tube and then patted on the color onto my cheeks with my fingertip, which worked well for dispersing and diffusing the color on my cheeks for a blush. After it blended and dried down, it looked natural–not quite dewy but not at all matte–and let my natural skin shine through. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before it started to fade slightly.

Glossier Beam Cloud Paint ($18.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a soft, light-medium coral with warm, orange tones and a natural finish. It had sheer, buildable color coverage (semi-opaque with three layers) that sat particularly well on my skin, as it seemed to have a natural finish despite not being dewy or wet in feel. The consistency was thin, like a watery gel, and easy to spread across my cheeks for a natural stain-like appearance. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Dawn

Glossier Dawn Cloud Paint ($18.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a vibrant, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a natural finish. It had sheer, buildable coverage–almost semi-opaque with three layers–that applied evenly and easily over bare skin. The product has a lightweight, thin gel-like texture that has more airiness than a true liquid but wasn’t as watery as some liquid blushes. It was easy to apply and diffuse on my cheeks for even, smooth coverage that had a natural finish–almost dewy but not tacky or sticky. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before it started to look slightly faded.
