This weightless, talc-based loose powder adds a soft finish to makeup while imparting subtle shine. It’s finely milled, which means it picks up easily with a brush and adheres well to skin. In the package the powder appears to be stark white, but it dissipates over skin, creating a softening effect that imparts faint shimmer and luminosity. The well-designed compact twists the sifter closed to keep powder from spilling out.

Pros:
  • Has a subtle brightening effect thanks to very small flecks of shimmer.
  • Finely milled texture feels wonderfully light, but readily adheres to the brush and your skin.
  • Clever compact design eliminates the mess typical of loose powders.
Cons:
  • So finely milled it lingers in the air, which means you have to avoid breathing it.

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.

    I like this powder
    • I actually like this powder and was surprised that I did. I've been searching for a powder since the Sonia Kashuk line completely changed theirs and discontinued my favorite. I found some that I like from MAC but they were pricey and very heavy for summer. I tried this one and think it did a nice job. It's light so my real skin still comes through but it set my foundation beautifully. I have dry skin but the powder didn't dry it out further. It doesn't look white on your skin.
