My Glossier New York Experience and a Glossier, Sephora and World Duty Free Haul!

Glossier Showroom, Sephora Haul, and World Duty Free
This month I was lucky enough to visit New York for the fourth time and what's a trip to New York without a bit of shopping! So today I wanted to share with you what I picked up as well as my experience at the Glossier Showroom.

GLOSSIER*

It's safe to say Glossier is the talk of the town and if you haven't heard the goss then Glossier now also ship to the UK too, hooray! While I was in New York I took a trip to the infamous showroom to see what all the fuss was about, so here's my Gossier experience...

First of the shop/showroom is actually really easy to find as it's located in Lower Manhatten along Lafayette Street which is one of the main streets that runs through Soho.
The building itself actually looks more like a block of swanky New York apartments, however, the massive Glossier flag outside kind of gives it away that this is more than just your average beauty shop!

As you approach the building you are greeted at the entrance by a girl in an amazing pink boiler suit who advises you to take the lift to the penthouse to access the showroom. When you get to the top the lift opens to reveal the most dreamy light and airy white, pink and red space full of Glossier goodness!
The showroom itself is laid out in sections so you can swatch, play and apply the products to your heart's content. There's even a sink area where you can test out all of the skincare and I also loved the fact there was plenty of friendly staff to help and advise you if you needed.
Overall I loved the friendly and calming atmosphere of the showroom so without further ado here's what I picked up...

Glossier Phase 1 Set* Saving £8. You can purchase everything in the set below separately also.
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser*
Glossier Priming Moisturizer
Glossier Balm Dotcom* (I picked up Birthday)

Glossier Mask Duo* Saving £6. Again you can buy the masks separately below.
