Olivia Rodrigo may be a lot younger than me (she was literally born the year I graduated high school) but that doesn’t mean I can’t take a serious look at her makeup looks. Because recently, the pop star wore my dream summer eye makeup and now we know why it looks so good: Glossier No. 1 Pencil, The new launch starts today in 10 Perfect Shades.
The No. 1 pencil is a revamped version of the discontinued ColorSlide, Glossier’s first colored eyeliner. The brand kept everything that worked (pigment and greasy formula) and got rid of what didn’t (the packaging, for one). The new pencils are just that – easy-to-use pencils that deliver buildable, long-wearing color. Once the pigment dries up to a demi-matte finish, it stays on for 12 hours, even if you are sweating in the summer sun.
You can use these liners (like a cat’s eye) or spreading the formula for as much of a wash as possible (like Rodrigo did with lavender above).
I also love that shiny Maintained the vibrant, fun colors that worked so well the first time around. According to the brand, the No. 1 pencil colors were inspired by the archives of art history, such as “materials, mediums, pigments, styles, and tools seen in painting, pottery, sculpture, and architecture.” The art child in me is screaming.
the formula is vegetarian too, which is more challenging to do with colors like Rococo (a darker eggplant). These colors are typically made with carmine (a colorant made from the dried and crushed shells of cochineal insects — ick!), but Glossier uses a vegan version, making sure the No. 1 pencil is for everyone. Huh.
Now, if you’re not a fan of brights and pastels, there are also classic colors like Ink (a rich black) and Frame (a neutral brown). Canvas (a pure white) is perfect for illuminating your waterlines. catch them all now shiny website,
