GlamST: Try Before You Buy

With the amount of items on my wishlist right now, there is no way I will ever be able to afford them all, and honestly I probably wouldn’t even use most of them.  While researching and trying to narrow down my choices, I stumbled on a great way to test out new products before you even buy them.

GlamST is a new site launched by two intelligent and hard working females in the largely male driven engineering industry.  They aim to help women with some of the biggest problems we face when it comes to beauty: choosing the right products for our personal style and learning about other products that could work for us.  The software was originally marketed to and used by cosmetics companies like L’Oreal on their websites, but now has evolved into its own online platform.

GlamST’s goal is to make it easy for the user to try and discover new products, so they have their own social platform where you can share looks you create and get recommendations of other similar looks and products.  They already have a ton of products and are adding new ones constantly so its a great way to learn about new releases from your favorite brands.


This part of the website is one of my favorites.  After you’ve had a chance to play around with all of the products, everything from face to lips to lashes, you can see what exactly you used, how much it costs, and potentially buy it.  They’ve recently added a ton of new features for your eyes including liners, mascaras, and a whole slew of eyeshadow products and shapes, so there’s tons to play around with!

GlamST offers products to test from all sorts of brands, everything from Benefit to OCC,  Ilamasqua to Dior, and everything in between.  Create your own account here to get started!

Have you ever tried a virtual makeover site like this in the past?  All the one’s I’ve tried before turn out looking super clownish and drawn on, but I was impressed by the subtlety on GlamST.  Let me know if you have a chance to try it out!

    • Some people don’t have easy access to a beauty store or prefer to do their ordering online. I order about half my beauty products online and so it’s nice to be able to have some idea of what a certain lipstick shade will look like with my skin tone before I purchase. Plus I had fun just playing around with all the different products and trying out combinations that I probably would never spend the time to actually put on my face 🙂
