Sonia Kashuk is frickin’ *bringing* it in the brush department this spring. Just like the travel brushes in her Hidden Treasures Brush Set ($20), her limited edition Coral Reef Highlighter Brush ($13) performs like a champ and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
When I want a veil of sheer, shimmery powder or bronzer, Coral Reef handles the job perfectly.
The domed brush head resembles the head on a kabuki brush. It’s a little different than a regular kabuki, though, because the bristles (sooo soft!) are less densely packed, and the brush head feels fluffier.
It lays down sheer layers of color evenly on my skin. I’ve used the brush to apply highlighting powder, bronzer and blush, and it works well with all three types of products. This doll’s a multi-tasking monster.

You’ll either hate or love the metallic faux coral handle, but I think it’s cute — and lightweight, too.
You might like the Sonia Kashuk Coral Reef Highlighter Brush if…
- …you like makeup applied in sheer veils of color,
- …you’re partial to lightweight brushes,
- …you like a good bargain.
Alarm clock kitty
Tabs just started his new job. He works as my alarm clock.
Early each morning around dawn he meows to be let in, so El Hub goes and opens the door. The first place Tabs heads is to the kitchen, where he gobbles up what’s left of his stinky wet food from the night before. Then, he jumps up on the bed, climbs across my chest and blows his fishy kitty breath up in my grill.
As far as alarm clocks go … it’s not bad. Stinkier than most but a lot less jarring.
What’s shakin’? Is it Friday yet?
