Glossier Showroom was top of my list of things to visit, on my trip to New York. People would ask what I wanted to see this time and I'd reply, Glossier Showroom. There's so much hype about it online, but no one I mentioned Glossier Showroom to had even heard of it.
Glossier is a skin care and makeup brand, started up by Emily Weiss. Before Glossier Emily Weiss founded the beauty blog - In To The Gloss. Glossier have opened a Showroom in New York. The Showroom is the only place you can buy Glossier products for now, besides the Glossier website. At first when I read Showroom I thought it was by invite only. I read about the Showroom online and sounded different, so I knew my next trip to New York I had to stop by.
As you all know I was over in New York, so I definitely didn't let Glossier Showroom go a miss. I headed down to Soho, to Lafayette Street where Glossier Showroom is. I remember turning the corner and spotting the banner going down the building "Glossier" and feeling that excitement. I'd waited so long on this.
I was greeted by a girl asking if I was there to see the Showroom and directed me. I headed for the lift to the fourth floor (the penthouse).
The lift opened walking into the Showroom. I spotted the famous instagram shots people had taken and it was exactly how I imagined. I took a walk around and the workers were so chilled out. People were taking photos and videoing. I absolutely hate going in shops and the workers are constantly coming up behind you asking if you are finding everything, when you are just looking. There was a worker who stood back and staff at the tills, at the back of the Showroom. It was actually nice getting to look around, seeing what Glossier had and no one bothering you.
I then headed and picked up an order form, from the corner of the room. There was too many nice things to choose from. I said to myself I'd only buy two or three things. I ended up walking back around the Showroom and putting a cross beside all the things I thought I'd like. Sometimes it's ok to spend money, it's not like I can just go to Glossier Showroom everyday. When I went to pay, it came to $125.
Glossier Showroom is worth a visit, if you're in New York. I love that Glossier Showroom is photo and Instagram friendly. In the modern world, everyone is taking photos and it's free advertising for Glossier - so it's a win win for Glossier. I'll be doing a Glossier haul, showing you what I bought. I can't even remember all the things I picked myself, so it will be fun to see what I picked.
