Review | Gosh Giant Blush Sticks

Monday, April 27, 2015


Hey Beauties! 

With warmer weather on the horizon I am really shaking up my makeup, I have started to love the look of lightly bronzed skin and a glowy flush of colour on the cheeks. A cream blush is the perfect product to get that glow and the GOSH Giant Blush Sticks have been one of my favourite formulas. 

The GOSH Giant Blush Sticks are just as the name says, a cream blush in a stick format, along the same lines as the Clinique Chubby Sticks but at a more affordable price. The GOSH version come in super sleek black tubes with colour coded bases that twist to push the product up and down. They are available in three beautiful shades 02 Shy (a natural beige), 04 Passion (a warm coral pink) and 06 Pink Parfait (a medium pink).


 I have Shy* and Passion* and both are really lovely blushes, they have a smooth cream to powder formula that glides onto the skin easily and blends out beautifully. They leave a softly diffused bit of colour that adds a a healthy glow and dewy look to the skin. I really love this formula because the blush is practically perfect, whether you apply straight from the tube or use a stippling brush it blends effortlessly to look almost airbrushed. Both shades are incredibly pigmented so a little goes a long way but because they blend so well you can easily erase any mistakes. 

The formula is creamy and soft but the powder finish means it is not at all greasy or shiny on the skin so these babies will even work on an oily complexion. It also isn't drying so it doesn't cling to dry patches or even accentuate pores. They feel almost velvety on the skin, not at all tacky or sticky like the common cream blush. They dry and stay in their place without losing their lustrous finish. In terms of lasting power, they last at least 6 hours before fading into a slight stain that prolongs the wear a few more hours.

The GOSH Giant Blush Sticks are a pretty amazing little product and they are the perfect blush for a glowy summer flush. They retail for $18 and are available at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. 

Have you tried the Giant Blush Sticks? Are you a cream blush fan?

  1. Oooooh now this is something I could go for. I love how light the shades are. Sometimes blush sticks are way too heavy. :]

  3. These are so pretty! Though to be honest I've found Gosh is often overpriced for the quality. They have good products, but I don't think they are better than other drugstore lines that are much more reasonably priced. That being said, those are some hella cute blushes!

    1. I agree with you but I also think they have some products that are difficult to find in the drugstore and I love the options they give!

  4. These both look so pretty! I've never tried anything from Gosh just because they're quite high priced but I'm not familiar with the quality of their products, so it's good to know these are worth it!
