Brow Kit includes four shades of creamy, sheer brow wax (for blondes, redheads, and brunettes) and two unbelievably small applicators: a wedge brow brush to apply the wax and a mascara-type wand to groom brows. The wax doesn’t do much to enhance brows and the colors are too soft for any real definition, while the tools are difficult to work with when compared to full-size brushes. If you try this you’ll most likely only need one shade; why these weren’t offered as stand-alone colors (without the nearly useless applicators) is a mystery.
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.
