UK beauty fans get ready because a Glossier pop-up shop is coming to London just in time for the Christmas shopping season.
Glossier has been notoriously tricky to get ahold of in London due to the brand's US base. However, that's about to change this winter. From November 20th all the way through until February 5th, beauty fans will be able to visit the new Glossier pop-up shop in the heart of London's Covent Garden. At the pop-up, fans can expect to find items with a cult following such as Balm Dotcom and Boy Brow. As founder Emily Weiss explained in a recent interview, "Roughly fifty percent of our followers are international and so we’re trying to get our products into our followers’ hands as quickly as we can."
