Although the concept has been around for a while, cheek stick are about to go big especially with the recent Clinique Chubby Stick Colour Cheek Balms. The GOSH Giant Blush Sticks are a brilliant budget option and I absolutely love the look and feel of them!
GOSH Giant Blush Stick in 02 Shy, 04 Passion & 06 Pink Grapefruit
I love all those colours! I think that 02 Shy would actually make a nice subtle contour shade and the coral and pink shades make perfect pops of colour.
The texture is really nice too and quite impressive for a budget brand. The cream glides over the skin and then blends out to a soft glowy powder finish. It is dewy though – not too powdery.

Aren’t the colours beautiful? You can see that it’s a lovely lustrous formula and it’s also nice and easy to apply a little touch to the lips for a soft matte pop of colour (make sure your lips are nice and smooth first though).
They are super easy to apply, blend and wear and the pigment creates a soft stain on the skin so the colour is pretty long-lasting.
I do like a bit of GOSH when it comes to chemist brands – they have had some amazing standout products over the years and I particularly love their long-wear eyeliners and eyeshadow sticks. They have also launched some exciting, fun and innovative products of late too and the GOSH Lip Lacquers, positioned as a mani for your lips, were really fun!
The GOSH Giant Blush Sticks (£6.99) launch on the 30th July 2014 along with the rest of the GOSH Autumn Winter 2014 collection. There is also a new Mineral Powder and brush, new 9 Shades Eye Palettes, some new mascaras (Double Precision & Crazy Volume) and Defining Brow Gels. There’s also new shades of the Velvet Touch Lipstick and new Pearly Texture Sparkling Effect Nail Lacquers.
