GOSH Cosmetics Giant Sun Powder


$25 at Shoppers Drug Mart

This Giant Sun Powder in 001 comes with 28g (1.0 oz US) of product and costs $25. In comparison to other brands: MAC Mineralize SkinFinishes come with 10g for $34 (CAD), Prestige Cosmetics Bronzing Powders come with 8g for $15 (CAD) and  Sleek MakeUP's Glo Face & Body Highlighters come with 8.2g for $10 (CAD).

This product comes with nearly triple the amount of product of ones similar to it. This makes it a great deal if you're looking for a glowing gold highlighter/bronzer/all-over-glow.

It comes with a large mirror on the inside. The packaging is bare and sleek, but can accumulate scratches very easily as shown in the first picture. 

This is a close-up of the colour of the sun powder. In real life, it leans a bit coppery, giving it an almost rose gold colour.
You can see the hints of copper in this photo of it swatched on my hand. The swatch on the left is a heavier swatch, while the one on the right is blended out. It definitely gives a great glow.

While this is a great multi-purpose product (highlighter, bronzer, eyeshadow) it only comes in one colour. Although this colour can probably work well on many skin tones, I wish they had more of a variety from which to choose.

I would recommend using a dense/stiff brush to apply this product because using a fluffy one will cause it to become flaky/powdery.

For the price, you can't go wrong. If you don't like using/having many products, this will definitely last you a very long time.
