Beware of Glossier Cloud Paint Knockoffs

By  |  0 Comments

According to a thread on Reddit’s r/makeupaddiction, some shady people have started to sell counterfeit versions of the liquid blush on Carousell, which is what one user classified as “the Asian version of Depop.” While some users lament that, sadly, buying from alternative sellers is the only way they can get their beloved Glossier products since the company currently only ships to a handful of countries.

Though spending $4 instead of $18 is a great deal, no deal is worth purchasing fake makeup.

According to a 2018 Allure report, though the knockoff Cloud Paint seller claims that their products are “OEM” (“original equipment manufacturer”), which means that it came straight from the manufacturer and is being resold, there’s no way to be sure that this is actually the case. As one Redditor pointed out, “I mean, they can print whatever they want on the tube. That doesn’t mean that’s what is in the tube.” True.

Another user called out the subtle discrepancies between these particular products and the real thing. “She claims they’re OEM or straight from the manufacturer of Glossier Cloud Paints, but even so you can see differences in the packaging and the seller herself says there’s a bit of fragrance (original cloud paint is fragrance-free [sic]). She doesn’t list the ingredients but claims they’re the same (but why do they have different smells and textures then?),” that user wisely explained, according to a 2018 Allure report.

The Glossier Cloud Paint is available in the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, Canada, Ireland, and Denmark.

According to the beauty product’s description, the pillowy, gel-cream formula is designed to be the most user-friendly cheek color in existence. If you can finger paint, you can Cloud Paint—simply dab it onto cheeks wherever you please. It’s seamless, sheer, and buildable (i.e. it’s hard to accidentally apply too much). Inspired by gradient pink NYC sunsets, the shades are optimized to work across a wide range of skin tones for a healthy, flushed-from-within glow.

I tend to focus my attention outwards and am drawn to the external world of action. I learn a lot about the world through experience. Focusing on what I have seen, heard, or touched, gives me the ability to develop a practical and realistic outlook on the world. Making decisions based on impersonal criteria like principles and logic is very important to me.I accept responsibility for my actions. When I succeed, I accept the satisfaction of the achievement, and if I do fail at something, I learn from it and do better next time. I feel confident in my abilities and am accepting of myself. I have good time management skills. I am able to fit the most important things in life into my schedule. I have a strong sense of goal commitment.
