When you think of Gucci Westman, you picture an elevated glow. She’s an artist that’s carved out an aesthetic distinctly her own — one that’s fresh, healthy, glamorous but not overdone. But most interestingly she creates looks that are a part of someone’s unique beauty; everything is seamless, and it’s impossible to tell where skin ends and makeup begins (which is why she’s worked with women like Jennifer Aniston, Anne Hathaway and Gwyneth Paltrow for years).
This aesthetic is what informed the creation of her own line, Westman Atelier. While categorically makeup, each formula is loaded with skincare-adjacent ingredients at effective concentrations, so not only do you see immediate radiance, but long-term complexion benefits.
Recently, the brand launched Vital Skincare Complexion Drops. This formula is one that Westman has been working on for a long time because her bottom line was no silicones, and they struggled to find a formulator that could do so (it’s difficult to achieve a smooth, blendable liquid formula without them). But they eventually got there, and the resulting product is a sheer, easy-to-apply fluid that subtly evens out skin tone, while imparting a luminous glow. Enriched with Tsubaki Oil and Ginseng, they also work to hydrate, replenish and improve tone — double the benefits!
I was fortunate enough to try the Complexion Drops with the brand’s artistry lead. I favor lightweight, luminous coverage but these surpassed all expectations (as in, they were amazing). They afford just enough coverage to improve the look of skin, but not so much as to change the texture. They are dewy, but if you’re oil-prone like me, a dusting of powder across the t-zone subdues any excess shine. We added some other iconic formulas including the Vital Skin Foundation Stick, Face Trace Contour Stick in Truffle, Super Loaded Tinted Highlighter in Peau de Peche and the Squeaky Clean Lip Balm in Nana.
