Oh Gosh Cosmetics. How you get me. Calling your new blush stick GIANT BLUSH? You knew. You KNEW I’d have to review them!
Gosh Cosmetics Giant Blush Sticks($18) are kind of AMAZING. They do remind me of those Clinique Chubby Blush sticks, but I’m pretty sure these are a bit bigger. Not by much, but just a bit. But for me, SO MUCH better. I’ve walked by and swatched those Clinique ones a few times. You’d think I would have had one by now, hey? Nope. Not a fan of the texture. They seem a little dry to me, and full of silicones. These Gosh Cosmetics Giant Blush Sticks aren’t, even though they also are a cream-powder formula. I like the texture so much better on these!
There are three shades available, and I have two of them to show you-Pink Parfait a neutral pink, and Passion a bright coral.
See that pigmentation? WOWZA. These are powerful blushes I warn you! You can see how creamy they are at first from the swatches. Care is needed when applying them! You can just apply them straight to you cheeks if you are brave, but I suggest a stippling brush. Otherwise, you’ll have crazy clown cheeks like I did hahaha!
I’m wearing Gosh Cosmetics Giant Blush Stick in Passion in that photo, and I’ll tell you-there was some blush application restraint that was really hard to accomplish! I think I still have too much on the photo! I dusted a bit on my nose to kind of give that sun flushed look which I think really works when a blush is super-pigmented like these. I can’t believe how pigmented they are! I only have a face pic of Passion, because as pretty as Pink Parfait looks in the swatch, it just makes me look really flushed as if I have a fever. Not a good look for anyone. And it doesn’t help that my cheeks at the moment are screaming red all the time. I don’t know what happened on the road trip-whether it was too much sun, stress, new skincare or what but MAN they are sensitive and red now. So a blush that’s pink like that just accentuates the flushed look I already seem to be sporting naturally. But it’s just as amazing! These Gosh Cosmetics Giant Blush Sticks are so easy to blend, last a good while-they are a MUST have if you are a blush fiend! The third shade that’s available is called Shy, a dusty rose shade, and I’m going to pick it up for sure, as I think it’ll be more wearable for me than Pink Parfait at the moment. Tracy needs gentle blushes at the moment LOL.
Get one of these now at your local Shopper’s Drug Mart!
Gentle blush! I’m trying to think if ANY of my blushes could be considered gentle. I think I have 2 that could be considered “gentle”-Rouge Bunny Rouge Starina and Chantecaille Wind, which is discontinued and I’m still angry about that. It’s my fave neutral blush of all time, so I use it sparingly since I didn’t get another before it disappeared. What’s your favourite “gentle” blush?
