Product Description

Generation G. It’s a new kind of lip color that gives the look and finish of a stain, but that glides on and wears like a tinted balm. Because lipstick shouldn’t complicate your look. Premiering in four important shades designed to look amazing on everyone: two that subtly enhance your natural lip tone, and two for a more saturated look. The effect? Diffused, sheer matte goodness—just swipe it on. No liner, no blotting, no YouTube tutorial necessary.

Size: 0.04oz / 1.13g

Not a huge lipstick girl, not even a huge makeup girl - but what's cool about Glossier is that all of their products are for girls who aren't necessarily makeup girls, or it certainly feels that way. Whenever I wear lipstick, I don't like to make a huge to-do about it, I just wanna swipe something on, have it be subtle and last and look like I didn't put too much work in. That's why this lip color totally works for me - I just dab a little bit on if I'm looking for a lighter red lip for work or if I'm going to dinner with my s/o or feeling really sassy I can press a little harder when applying and it gives me a totally different shade that's still remarkably beautiful. It's smooth and pigmented and feels almost like a lip balm. I just love the versatility and the way you can go from subtle to saucy real quick just by how you apply it. I'm gonna have to treat myself to the pink and berry shades eventually. Thx Glossier for the lipstick haters lipstick!

Despite the docked star, these are actually one of my favorite lip products. Their pigmentation is beautifully buildable, so they are great for both daily wear and a bold lip depending on how you apply them. I docked a star for the packaging, since these lipsticks always seem to loosen from the tube rather quickly. They can totally fall out if you're not careful. As long as you know to be delicate, though, the product is totally worth that flaw. One exception is the shade "Cake." It is so similar to my natural lip color that it has no visible difference in my lips' appearance and looks as though I have nothing on. The other shades are gorgeous though. "Zip" and "Crush" are my go-tos.

I adore this product. The color is a deep berry and verges on purple. It’s easy to build on from a light tint to a heavy lipstick. I have very light skin so it’s such a stark pop of color that I love. The only downside is that it doesn’t last long once it comes in contact with saliva. I have pretty thin lips so I have the reapply often, but I could see it lasting much longer if you have larger lips. I highly recommend using it with Glossier’s lip gloss. Together they give you really pretty, juicy lips. I use the Jam alone during the day and add lip gloss to it when I’m going out. The lip gloss also helps protect the coloring and makes it last longer.

I would give this lipstick five stars if it weren't for the terrible packaging. I own this in Zip and Cake. Zip is my favorite lipstick and I bring it with me everywhere. I can apply it without a mirror and it has a beautiful blotted look. Cake, however, was too close to my natural lip color therefore it didn't really look like I was wearing lipstick at all. The packaging is a bit of a failure, once my entire lipstick fell out of the tube a few days after I bought it. Thankfully, Glossier replaced it for me :) I would recommend, but be careful when choosing choosing your shade and be careful with the tube!

This is probably my most worn lipstick ever. It has so much versatility and can create different looks depending on how much you build it up on your lips. This shade in particular is a "my lips but better" color, which is great for everyday. No scent, smooth application, buildable opacity, and comfortable on the lips. My only complaint is that the bullet always breaks off near the base. This has happened every time I repurchased this product, and also to my friends who purchased these lippies. I love this product enought to continue using it, i just heat the bullet and stick it back in the tube!

The color definitely looks different in pictures than it does on me. Whenever I wear it, I have to ask my friends if it looks like I’m wearing lipstick because I can’t tell the difference really. But people tell me it’s visible and it looks good. I can see it definitely in photographs. Like a My-lip-but-better vibe. Sheer and hydrating for a lipstick. My go-to

I love the application and feel of this lipstick. It goes on more like a tinted chapstick with a hold power of a lipstick. The color can be more or less pigmented depending on how many layers you apply. My only gripe is that the plastic on the lipstick is a little flimsy and mine broke. Their customer service quickly sent a replacement! So bravo for that.

I love the formula and color of this lipstick, but the packaging is a major problem. Even after a few very gentle uses, the lipstick has broken off from the base. Many other people I know have complained that the cap of the product has cracked for them, so the lipstick keeps falling out. The lipstick also has a plastic smell to it. I love the sheer color, but until Glossier fixes the packaging, I can’t recommend buying this product.

Absolutely a cult classic and staple in my lip routine. I can’t live without these, they are just too dependable. For the lighter colors (like), I can apply these without a mirror knowing I’ll get a flawless easy application. The darker colors (zip, jam) still manage to look like a natural stain, not like an intense lipstick. Pictures I take wearing these always turn out better than other lip products.

Really love the color. It’s the perfect shade for me - very natural but still gives me some color. It’s not really pigmented so if you’re on the look out for that then this isn’t the product for you. It’s like a lip balm where you need to apply several layers to get that stain on your lips. It also fades so you will need to reapply throughout the day. Also, obsessed with the packaging. ❤️

For some reason the surface of my generation G is really dry and seems to require some hard pressing for any product to get on my lips... does anyone else have this problem?

Does this lipstick cling to any dry patches on the lips? It's difficult to find a lipstick that doesn't do that, especially if it is matte.
