Review Overview

This set provides six shades of Kashuk’s powder eyeshadow along with a sheer cream concealer and a dual-sided sponge-tip applicator, which you should toss out (Kashuk’s eyeshadow brushes are preferred). Each powder shadow applies smoothly but quite sheer. They layer well, so you can achieve more dramatic shaping and shading, and the shades offer both matte and shimmer finishes.

The concealer is described as an eyeshadow base, and it has a soft powder finish that works well to enhance application while evening out minor discolorations on the eyelids. These sets are great!

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.
