Gosh natural touch cream blush in 003 fluffy peach photos and swatches

Every once in a while I try a new Gosh product. Gosh isn't my favorite, but I like some of their products and the excellent color selection.

I only have a few cream blushes in my collection and when I saw this pretty peach color on sale I had to grab it!

Here is Gosh cream blush 003 fluffy peach:

It's a very pale, almost fleshy peach. Really pretty. It looks like a cream finish in the pot but when swatched you can see there are subtle hidden sparkles laced into it.
The result is a natural glowy finish.

Swatch of fluffy peach (layered heavily) :

Wearing fluffy peach layered a few times on my cheeks:

I will be honest, this barely shows up on me. It gives a super natural dewy glow, without depositing much color. I think it looks very natural, and livens up my face.
I like it because I don't have anything else that looks like this on my skin. It's also nice in the winter months when my skin is dry and lacking in luminosity.

For someone super pale looking for a touch of color, without looking like they are wearing anything - this is your blush.
On deeper skins I imagine you would still get a beautiful glow, and a subtle highlight effect.

Lasting power is ok for a cream blush, it lasts about 6 hours which isn't bad or good.

Overall, if you like cream blush I say check these out. They are around $16 CAD but often go on sale.

Do you like wearing cream blush?

Revlon grow luscious plumping mascara review

I liked Revlon's original grow luscious mascara, although it didn't make my lashes longer it did keep them healthy and full. The ingredients in these grow luscious mascaras are beneficial for conditioning lashes but that's about it.

The packaging is similar to the original, and the brush is about the same size too.

What about performance? Well I can't even believe how crap this formula is. I personally would like to rename it 'grow luscious clumping mascara.'

Wearing grow luscious plumping after 6 hours:

This stuff flaked, smudged and clumped horribly on me. Even if I applied it sparingly it would clump up and flake off within hours.
It's nothing like the original, which was much more impressive.
I really have nothing good to say about this mascara, and I do not recommend it.

Repurchase? Absolutely not

Price: $9.99 CAD
