Last year wasn't kind to everyone, but it was a standout period for Glossier. The cool-girl brand launched an impressive lineup of products—from the Generation G lipsticks to the Super serums—leaving us wondering what could possibly come next.

Less than two weeks into 2017, Glossier has already hit us with another titillating release: the Priming Moisturizer Rich ($35). This new "luxurious face cream" is a richer, more decadent take on the original Priming Moisturizer ($25), and according to the brand, this new product can be used as a night cream or under makeup.

Full disclosure: When a beauty brand is embraced by the public as wholeheartedly and passionately as Glossier is, my knee-jerk reaction is to proceed with caution. Glossier's packaging and branding are incredibly cool, no doubt, but I'm looking for the ingredient list, application, and results to deliver too.

I can tell you for a fact that I already dig Glossier's original Priming Moisturizer—it's light and hydrating, and it creates a smooth canvas for makeup application. But is its self-proclaimed "dense, sumptuous" new counterpart worth another purchase? Keep scrolling to find out.
