Ever since Glossier released ~*Lidstar*~, an eyeshadow described as a "wash of soft, glistening color that lasts all day," I wanted to get my hands on it. All their Instagram photos and swatches of the molten colors screamed, "BUY ME!"

So, does it really live up to all the raves I've seen on the internet and is it worth the price and wait? Find out below.

I'm already thinking about purchasing another shade! It's Cub, "a rose gold with [a] warm shimmer effect," in case you were wondering. With its sleek packaging, simple formula, and easy-to-use doe foot applicator, Lidstar is definitely worth all that ~hype~.

However, while it is an amazing eyeshadow to use every day, there are more affordable dupes for it. If you find Lidstar too expensive or you're not willing to wait a month before you get it, we have excellent alternatives here
