As we reflect on the past seven years, it's incredible to see how far we've come on our beauty journey. From the inception of our very first swatch in 2017 to the recent release of our Blooming Blush in 2023, each year has brought new challenges, triumphs, and most importantly, a celebration of beauty in all its forms. Let's take a walk down memory lane and revisit some of the key highlights that have shaped our brand.
Our First Swatch: It all started with a single swatch, laying the foundation for the sparkle that would define our brand.
March - First Glis Glosses: Enter Glis Glosses, our first shimmering delight that had everyone going "ooh" and "ahh."
January - Face Stickers: Who says makeup can't be playful? Cue the face stickers that had us all channeling our inner kids! Do any OG’s remember these?!
September - First Palette Design: We officially joined the palette party, proving that makeup is an art form meant to be shared and adorned.
