There’s definitely a trend for chunky crayons right now, with every product possible being re-imagined into a stick format that can be applied in one swoop. Although Clinique are undoubtedly the king of sticks and crayons, there are many more affordable alternatives popping up on the high street. GOSH have launched their very own version of the cheek tints that caused quite the stir a while ago, which come in at a very affordable £6.99 each. They’re a lot chunkier than the Clinique versions, offering a serious amount of colour and a thicker bullet; the colour is a lot stronger and the result really quite dewy, compared to the matte finish of the Cheek Colour Balms. The texture provides a radiant finish that’s great for applying over a BB Cream or lightweight foundation, but if you’re a fan of matte looks or understated colour then you may want to apply with caution.
The colour result is really quite strong for a blush, which although a good thing means you have to get to grips with the product to ensure your cheeks don’t overtake your face. I personally love the coral shade for a touch of radiance, as well as using the nude colour for adding a little contouring to my cheekbones. You can apply direct from the bullet, or simply use your finger to work a little into skin and build-up the finish. However, these also make an awesome lip colour thanks to the lightweight finish and slightly dewy shine – matching your cheek and lip shade may seem a little old fashioned, but it’s a great way of bringing your look together and ensuring a natural radiance.
