Beautifying Blush is a pressed-powder blush with a super-smooth, non-powdery application. This formula picks up easily on your brush, and applies sheer at first but quickly builds to a stronger color if desired.

The range of 5 colors offers a variety of shades (nudes, vibrant corals and flushed pinks) to suit skin tones from fair to deep.

There is a mix of matte and subtle shimmer shades. Fortunately, Sonia Kashuk packaged the Beautifying Blush with a see-through window that makes it easy to separate the shimmer from those with a matte finish.

Pros:
  • Smooth, blendable texture.
  • Initially sheer finish builds color quickly.
  • Doesn't fade over the day.
  • Range of shades to suit multiple skin tones.
Cons:
  • None.

Brand Overview

Sonia Kashuk At-A-Glance

Strengths: Affordable and widely available (though exclusive to Target stores); good makeup remover; the makeup is still the star attraction, with impressive options for foundation, powder, blush, lip color, eyeliner and especially makeup brushes.

Weaknesses: The concealers, eye pencil, and brow shapers are a letdown; the makeup palettes may seem convenient, but several of the included products perform poorly.

Perhaps best known for her years of work with supermodel Cindy Crawford, makeup artist Sonia Kashuk's well-chosen selection of makeup has been available exclusively at Target stores since the mid-1990s.

 Kashuk's brushes have been a strong point, and now that they've been redone they're better than ever, and still affordable. This is definitely a makeup collection worth visiting, and you'll find some premium options among Kashuk's powder foundation, regular powders, and blush. Several other products, from foundation to lipsticks, are also worthy of attention, though this is not a line that caters to darker skin tones. Ironically, it's the latest cosmetic products that met with the most critical reviews, largely due to poor execution or their gimmicky nature.

Note: Sonia Kashuk products are also available at select Bloomingdales locations in New York and California. The company also maintains freestanding stores in New York and New Jersey.
