Seriously, let’s just hand Sonia Kashuk the keys to the drugstore makeup queendom already.
SK consistently creates quality makeup able to pass for department store stuff, and the best part is it’s *always* affordable.
Like her $8 Velvety Shine Lip Crayons from last spring…
They’d be almost dupes for Bobbi Brown Lip Crayons ($22) if it weren’t for the fact that they cost a fraction of the price.

Sonia’s lip crayons even feel like their far more expensive Bobbi cousins, with a similar non-sticky texture, opaque coverage and super shiny finish. Plus, like Bobbi’s crayons, Sonia’s last all day without drying out my lips.

Bobbi’s lip crayons do come in a wider selection of colors, though, and I like the faint cooling sensation they produce.
But I’m not sure those make them worth the extra cost…
Sonia Kashuk’s Velvety Shine Lip Crayons come in three shades (Hot Pink, Pale Pink and Luscious Pink). I’ve tried Luscious Pink (a creamy rose) and Pale Pink (a creamy pinkish coral).
I’m totally in love with Pale Pink; it’s almost twins with Bobbi Brown’s Posey, which I wore a few days ago in my look for Ivy League. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A-to-the-PLUS!
I didn’t see the Velvety Shines available on the Target website, but they should be carried in your local store.
It looks like the fog took a day off today here in the Bay Area, so we just might get a sunny day.
No big plans for me other than a run around the neighborhood, and then maybe a trip to the mall to do some window shopping.
I promised myself that I couldn’t have any fun, though, until I got my laundry done, boo! The only clean shirts I have left either have holes in ’em or look like they’re made out of cat fur.
Four loads o’ laundry, here I come!
What are you up to today?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
