Published in: Just For Fun

  • The giveaway is closed now, and the winner is Bridget. Congratulations, Bridget! If you entered but didn’t win this time around, keep trying, and click here to enter any ongoing giveaways before you jet. πŸ™‚

I loves me some Chanel and Dior, but I’ve always also believed a gal can still look great on a drugstore makeup budget. Sonia Kashuk, one of my favorite bargain beauty babes, offers department store quality products at a checkbook-friendly price, and the line is filled with pieces that are interesting, fun and fresh.


Take her new spring line. It’s a veritable treasure trove of value, like the limited edition Couture Flat Top Blush/Powder Brush (there’s a reason this is always sold out: it’s AWESOME!), the Super Shimmering Highlighter and the Blink of an Eye Trio Set.

Today’s giveaway features these items and four more goodies from Sonia’s new spring line. With makeup for eyes, lips, face and nails, you’ll have everything you need to spruce up your look with some trendy spring shades. πŸ™‚

I cannot wait to go and purchase some new products from Sonia’s line and also Napoleon Perdis’ line….yaaayy!! Oh, although I was “window” shopping, I was able to pick up a few things from the Elf line, the best $1 dollar purchases I’ve ever made!!! I cannot wait to get back into target and actually do some DAMAGE!!

    By the way, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog, keep it up, Im loving all the info and tips =)

  78. Nicole says:

    I havent gotten to try any sonia kashuk cosmetics yet and this would be a great way to start!

  81. Hana says:

    ahhh! Awesome. I’ve always wanted to try Sonia!! I know it is more accessible, but still a bit pricey to me.

  82. Marlo Paras says:

    I have recently started using Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Soap which has all natural ingredients both for body and face. I especially love the Peppermint for the mornings and Lavender for the evenings when I’m washing my face. I noticed you have not blogged about a natural product before and this is one I think you might want to check out. The sample size is about 2.99 (canadian) and is very concentrated. It’s freaking awesome plus it has apparently 18-in-1 uses as per the bottle suggests. πŸ™‚

  83. Cass says:

    These look great and I would love to try them! I rarely buy drugstore brands but you have made me very interested in trying them. They just opened up a Target near where I live and I think I might find myself in the make up isle very soon!

  87. Indoorkitty says:

    Girrrrl, I’m lucky (UNlucky?) enough to hit up Le Targhay once every two years. I live in Vancouver and don’t drive down to WA enough. I have a really good friend, however, who sends me treats from Targhay on a lovingly high frequency.

    I’m planning a trip to your home city (SF represent!) for a future summer weekend getaway with my bestie, and I am beside myself with excitement. You absolutely must send me names of your fave places to shop and eat.

    Perhaps I’ll make my bi-annual pilgrimage to Targhay when we’re down there, hmmm?

  88. Nina says:

    I got the brush based on your recommendation and love it!

    i love targets “fancy” budget makeup! sonia’s products are so pretty and functional! i love her sheer cheek tints (and my mom went crazy when i got her one for her birthday). those lip colors are beautiful!

  93. Trude says:

    I’m at Target probably once a week, especially since they opened a big fancy new one on my way home from work. πŸ™‚ Love that I can shop for so many different things at once!

    Karen, I bought “Fatigued” after you recommended it. I am in love. It has been on my nails for a week, no chips!! (Seche Vite top coat). Very good color, office friendly yet classy and different. My Chanel nail polishes do not last me this long, they chip in two days.

  134. Jessica says:

    I LOVE TARGET!! Can’t get enough of it!! Went there with my boyfriend last night and had to stick my hands in my pockets to make sure I didn’t grab anything that I didn’t need!!

  137. auroragyps says:

    Sadly, I don’t get to Target very often, but I did go last month. I picked up a few things, including Fatigued (which I’m wearing right now). I like it, but it looks grey on my nails, instead of the green in the bottle. πŸ™ I threw Pure Ice Heart Breaker over it and it looks really cool… even my mom said she thought so and she’s not a fan of the weirder color I wear.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Ok Tabs…help me out here…I’m a major cat lover and I love getting Karen’s newsletters….I always look for you in them, of course! Anyhoo, I’d appreciate it if you could put in a good word for me as I would really love to get my hands on that face palette! I enter these all the time and haven’t won yet! I’d appreciate it, pal! Hope it’s a day full of mischief, catnip, treats, and lipstick!


  154. Meghan says:

    There’s a Target down the street from my house and I’m also there almost every other day, in fact I was just there about an hour ago. Its so dangerous, I had to drag myself away from the makeup aisle but usually I leave with way more stuff than I intended to buy. I’m obsessed!

  331. Kelly M says:

    Just finished watching Vampire Diaries, this episode was awesome!

  332. Emily says:

    I’m not sure how Target does it but I’m always lured in by some great deal and always leave the store with more than I planned to buy.

  333. Paula Rose says:

    Love Target!!
    But on a side note, why does UPS ground shipping take so dang long? Hate when I order something and they use UPS ground vs. USPS. πŸ™

  334. Cait says:

    Target is the greatest!! I could spend an entire day there!

  335. Cristina says:

    My last drugstore….. was a Revlons Foundation(Colorstay) and I was very pleased!
    πŸ™‚ Good Luck guys!!!!

  336. Yao says:

    The closest Target to me is only about a 25-minute walk away, so I’m definitely there more often than I should be. πŸ™‚

  337. Valbona Prokshi says:

    First and foremost, Karen, you are amazing and fun to read and know through your blogs.

    And today, it was all about the 80’s for me. Even though I did not grow up through the 80’s, I still find it in my heart to listen to the great music that once was.

    That being said, Richard Marx is an amazing singer, with “Right Here Waiting For You” being my favorite, and “Angelia” being another one of my favorites.

    And who wouldn’t want to bring back the fun times of the 80’s-the kind we see in the exciting movies- with some fun makeup colors this summer!?!

  338. Sarah says:

    last drugstore buy: Milani eyetech liner and Milani HD advanced concealer.

  339. shiny says:

    Oh pretty please, Mr. Santa, the Shimmering highlighter from the pixies in Kashuk forest! I want to look like a brown angel too!

  340. Rosa says:

    I’ve been buying sooo many fake eyelash sets! I’m obsessed! I decided to try putting on fake eyelashes as I knew it was tricky and not always easy to do, so I wanted to get a hold of it before it was too late! So far, I’m addicted! I luuurrrrvv them!!! I’m very jealous of your American girlies! I live in Quebec, Canada, and our main drugstores, Jean Coutu, Pharmaprix, Unirprix, Brunet, Phamiliprix, are cool too, but I wish i had a CVS, Rite Aid, or a Walgreens! And a Target too! I’d be there all the time! Also, have you heard about Pupa makeup line? It’s a new line at our Jean Coutu drugstore, and apparently it’s a very very popular makeup brand in Italy!

  341. Melissa says:

    I’ve been so stressed about whether I have a job next year. I work in education, and it’s not good. πŸ™ I would love to win something to pick me up.

  364. Sarah says:

    i went to target last weekend with my sister, i miss it. i got a job at walmart so i stopped shopping at target becuz i was always at walmart lol. now i don’t work at walmart anymore, so target here i come! πŸ™‚

  365. chibicheeks says:

    I love Target! I would shop there all the time, but if I did I would be completely broke. I always find that Target is one of those places that entices me to buy stuff I don’t need, because everything is so cool πŸ˜€

  366. Jess says:

    I love target! They have the best home goods .

    Where I live, we don’t have a Target but I love it when I get the chance to go there! Thank you so much for this contest, much appreciated. Btw, my latest drugstore purchase was Hard Candy’s Fox in a Box – in Hot Flash. Really pigmented, but not all workable shades, still worth the $5. Have a good day πŸ™‚

  373. Jenn says:

    OMG, I am in Target at least 2X a week!!! Too many times, my hubby says, LOL. Our theory is that Target might as well charge a $50 admission fee per family because that’s the minimum your gonna spend every time you walk in! I can’t help it, they have such great stuff and affordable prices!
    Oh, P.S. and by the way: my favorite sports team is The University of Florida Fightin’ Gators!! It is mine and hubby’s alma mater and we are very loyal to our school! πŸ™‚

  374. Anne says:

    Hi Karen! I just love reading your blog! it’s always full of insights and creative ideas. I’ve been reading it for years, actually, but never quite had the guts to comment. But anyway, Keep the posts coming! I’ll be happy to read them in the years to come πŸ™‚

  375. Tina H says:

    Hi there again!!!

    Once again, I am so thankful for all of these fantastic giveaways you do!!

    I love TARGET!!!! I don’t live far from one, and there is always a good reason for me to go to Target! At least I think its a good reason at the time! I just recently picked up Jordana Fabuliner in brown and black, its not found at Target though, but at Walgreens which I just found out that they will be carrying Milani product shortly! Which is terrible!!!

    Anyways, thanks again for the opportunity!!!

  378. Nina says:

    Recently I bought a mascara from Rimmel, their mascaras happen to be my favorite drugstore formulas =) They never smudge or flake on me and can give me really long and full lashes with just one swipe. Love!

    Oh Target, how I love you so!

  385. bethany says:

    I so almost bought that brush a few weeks ago, but i was worried that it wouldn’t be as dense and soft as the regular flat-top brush! I love the design on it!

  394. Diana K. says:

    I’m so proud of myself. I filed my taxes early and all by myself for the first time without help. I think I deserve a treat πŸ™‚

    I have been wanting that brush every since I read your post on it! The handle is adorable!

    I’m from Vancouver so I’m cheering for the Canucks. #1 in the NHL right now! I have to finish two english essays right now. My least favorite subject.

  406. Madelynn says:

    Sonia Kashuk revived my love of drugstore brands.

  407. The Rhapsode says:

    So funny, I actually went grocery shopping at Target this afternoon! Other than 2lbs of russet potatoes, milk, notebooks etc, I picked up the Suave Ultra-Fine Mist Spray (because you wrote about it!) and a Sally Hansen nail polish. So the last time I got drug store make up is today, too!

    Usually I am at Target at least twice a month. Now that I’m unable to drive for a while, it has been once in three months. That was only because iPad2 came out. It’s driving me crazy since we have a new Target that just opened.

  423. Kim says:

    Oddly enough, googling Toronto Blue Jays Makeup didn’t yield any good results. πŸ™‚ I love the Washington Capitals and the Indianapolis Colts.

Lately everyone has been telling that I look really nice in makeup and since I’m newly married I wore makeup for the wedding and have been wearing it since, I was told that I was backwards because I should to do it get the man but hey since I have the man I should keep him that my philosophy.

    Last drugstore purchase was three nail polishes (only because there was a deal – I try not to buy more than one at once unless it’s dirt cheap like NYC or Sinful Colors!). I really shouldn’t have, though, I spend WAY too much money on polish…I’ve got 80 or more, so I have to hide them or my friends make fun of me!

    This is the perfect pick-me-up for tax day! Thanks for doing this! I’ve always kind of believed that Sonia Kashuk is a step above other drugstore brands–especially her brushes. Don’t know if that is actually true or not, but I would love to try out all these delightful things!

    Thanks for the contest!
    Um…my favorite show is Glee, and I think Target is much better than Walmart.

    I wish I could shop at Target more often, but the closest one is over 30 minutes away by freeway – more if traffic isn’t good. As it it, I only make it there once every 3-4 months. πŸ™
