Glossier Lash Slick Mascara Review

Glossier does a lot of things right, one of them being listening to their customers/fan girls and boys.

Many begged Glossier for a mascara and though it took a little time, they delivered in the form of Lash Slick. Described as a “film form” mascara, technically a fiber mascara, Lash Slick promises length and definition.

Glossier founder Emily Weiss said she wanted something to replace lash extensions and took that into account when creating Lash Slick.

I’ve been testing this new mascara out for about 2 months now and I’ve formulated my thoughts below. If you want to know the real deal, read on.

Packaging 9/10
I love that the Lash Slick tube is that classic millennial pink, synonymous with Glossier. In a sea of black mascara tubes, I am very into this.
Each tube contains 0.29 oz. (8.5 grams) of product. The brush is a plastic, spiky comb style, which I really like. It’s a nice, tapered shape so it gets into the corners easily.

Formula 6/10
The formula is pretty easy to work with. It isn’t too wet or goopy and if anything, leans more dry. It builds ok but I don’t recommend more than 2 coats. I definitely love how rich black it is.
The reason for the 6 score is that I found this mascara to be very drying, likely due to the 3rd ingredient being alcohol. This could explain it’s impressive wear but I find it problematic and concerning.

Wear 10/10

Here is where Glossier Lash Slick truly shines.
I don’t have oily skin or lids, therefore don’t struggle much with smudging, but I was amazed at how I didn’t get a single flake, smudge, nothing. It truly does last until you take it off.
Glossier says Lash Slick can be removed with warm water but I find it requires a decent amount of manual effort to remove it, therefore causing stress on the lashes.

Value 7/10
$16 is a really great price point, especially if we consider this to be a prestige mascara, where many are in the $23 range. However, I rated this a 7 because it’s not my preference in terms of formula or results.

What I liked
  • Wear-no flakes or smudges at all.
  • Brush style-grabs every lash and combs through nicely.
  • Pigment-very rich black.
What I didn’t
  • Drying formula-likely due to alcohol.
  • Not super lengthening or volumizing-too subtle.
  • Difficult to remove-harsh on lashes.
Overall Score: 80%, B-

In this photo, I’ve had a lash lift and tint, perhaps why I’ve got a few oddly curled lashes. I also recently realized that I was overusing a lash curler so I’ve got some shorter spots in there.

Do I recommend Glossier Lash Slick?
My lashes are definitely darkened and defined with this mascara but I can’t say that I acheive noticeable length or volume. I’m more than ok with a more natural look, but the drying formula gives me serious pause. The look is what I’d expect from Glossier, the formula is not.

All that being said, someone people love this mascara and if you’re after a very natural look with zero smudging or flaking, you might want to give it a go.
