The brand’s rapid growth last year, passing $100 million in revenue and 1 million new customers made is largely attributed to its social media presence. Its biggest campaign ever, “Feeling Like Glossier,” is all about real people and has been a hit ever since.

It follows the recent trend from Nike to inspire young athletes and champion budding sports stars that are just starting out in their careers. It’s another great ad from Nike.
