Sonia Kashuk’s Chic Defining Contour Stick, a Near-Dupe for the NARS Cappadoce Matte Multiple, Saves Dollars While Defining Cheekbones

Ring-a-ling! Ring-a-ling!

I’ll get it! That’s the sound of the NARS dupe alert. :)

In this case, it’s chiming for Sonia Kashuk’s new $10.99 Chic Defining Contour Stick, a near dupe of my beloved (but MUCH more expensive) $39 NARS Cappadoce Matte Multiple.

Both baked golden brown cream sticks have a matte finish (here are swatches of NARS Cappadoce), and both of them can quickly sculpt cheekbones that would rival Johnny Depp’s circa the O.G. 21 Jump Street era.

Both of them are also easy to blend on bare skin or atop foundation — probably due to how lightweight and thin they are, which is great, because it keeps my skin from feeling like it’s suffocating under an inch of plaster.

Where the two differ, most obviously, is price ($10.99 versus $39), but also in the shape of the tip. The Multiple’s is huskier, wider and flatter, and it covers more surface area while sitting flush against the skin, whereas the tip on Sonia’s Chic Defining Stick has a slightly smaller (but still husky), rounded, more precise tip that seems to fit the space under my cheekbones a bit better.

Yet one more reason to go fan-girl over Sonia Kashuk: the unfathomably high levels of pigment in her new Lustrous Shine Lip Crayons.

I can’t believe these $8.99 retractable crayons aren’t more expensive. Smooth, silky and lightweight like a lip balm, they remind me a lot of pricier products from Too Faced and Benefit.

The Sonia Kashuk Eye Palette in Sweet Nothings Is Sweet on Lids

Published in: Daily Photo

Sonia Kashuk Eye Palette in Sweet Nothings

If Sonia Kashuk’s latest palette could talk, it would whisper sweet nothings…to your lids.

“Hello, my darling. You’re looking lovely tonight.”

“My, what beautiful lashes you have. They’re so lush and curly.”

“In a word, stunning. You have the curviest crease I’ve ever seen.

In a mix of matte and shimmers, the six subtle white, beige and taupe shades that comprise Sonia’s Sweet Nothings Eye Palette ($14.95) whisper a story about color.

“We’re perfect for highlighting brow bones,” they say, “among our other talents.”

This Sweet Nothing is looking for love at Target stores and online at target.com.

Shh… Hush now. :)

Eyes Go Au Naturel With the Bare Necessities in Sonia Kashuk’s New Eyeshadow Palette

Published in: Daily Beauty

Sonia Kashuk Bare Necessities Eyeshadow Palette (2)

Sometimes you run into an eyeshadow palette that you just know you’re going to be all over like a plus-size tabby on an open can of gravy.

That’s how I am about Sonia Kashuk’s new Eyeshadow Palette in Bare Necessities ($14.29).

It houses six nude powder eyeshadows, and get this — there are a couple of mattes, too, so it’s not just shimmer town as far as the eye can see.

I really like the color temps here. None of the colors are too warm or cool, so most gals (and dudes) should be able to rock ‘em.

Oh, and the palette? It’s only $14.29.

HOLLA! :)

Look for it at Target stores.

With the Weather Warming Up, Sonia Kashuk’s New Spring 2014 Collection (and Some of Her Face Products From Fall) Hit Right on Target

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews, Sonia Kashuk

Sonia Kashuk Spring 2014

Nods to warmer days ahead with Sonia Kashuk Spring 2014 (and some Fall 2013 warm weather faves)

Just got back from a walk with Sonia! :)

And we’re walking…

You know, Sonia Kashuk?

No, not in person, silly! But she was with me in spirit, as I was wearing some products from her new spring line.

They’re available right now at Target stores and target.com.

Her spring collection is HUGE this year — 37 pieces total.

Here are the ones I wore today, along with some fall face products (permanent collection) that seemed perfect for the warm weather we’re having.

Eye Shadow Quad in Up in Smoke ($13.69, spring)

Eye Shadow Quad in Up in Smoke ($13.69)

One of three new quads added to the family this spring. The other two are called Prima Ballerina (with rose and lavender shades) and Island Dreams (blues and greens).

Up In Smoke’s beige, taupe, gray and charcoal struck me as fall colors at first, but this is makeup, and there are no rules. :) Perfect for when you want to wear a smokey eye while everybody else is rocking pastels.

With super shimmery, buttery soft shadows that seem more expensive than they really are, it reminds me of a disco dancing version of Tom Ford’s She Wolf trio.

Pearlescence Longwear Creme Shadows in Diamond and Quartz ($8.99 each, spring)

My favorite thing from Sonia’s spring collection so far! These are completely new additions to the line.

Despite being shimmery metallics, they stay away from my fine lines (which I really appreciate). Sonia claims these smooth pigments actually help eyes look brighter and more youthful, and ya know? Maybe. I definitely do feel like my eyes look younger and more alert when I wear ‘em.

They’re easy to apply with fingers or a brush and don’t crease or move once they’re on my lids.

Joining the shades shown here, pale champagne Diamond and rosy Quartz, are a bronzy brown called Tiger’s Eye and an icy taupe called Moonstone.

Satin Luxe Lip Colour SPF 16 in Pink Buff and Very Berry ($9.99, spring)
