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)
