The name of Sonia Kashuk's Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Color doesn't indicate exactly what kind of product it is. Although you might think you'll get a lightweight lipstick with soft color and shine, this is more like a balm, lipstick, and lip gloss rolled into one.

Shine Luxe glides like a breeze across the lips and feels moisturizing the whole time it's on. The texture is interesting as it's almost gel-like and balm-like, certainly not typical of most sheer lipsticks. Although the name does imply sheerness, this actually provides medium coverage that lasts for about 3–4 hours before showing signs of fading. It has an attractive high-shine, glossy finish that sticks around for about 2 hours.

Once this lipstick wears off, the lips still feel moisturized, and it fades to an attractive stain. Another positive: It's fragrance- and flavor-free!

Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Color comes in a range of shades—pinks, nudes, plums, and reds—most of which should work on a variety of skin tones. If you're looking for a good, medium-coverage, high-shine lipstick, get thee to Target, stat!

  • Balm-like formula moisturizes lips.
  • Medium color coverage.
  • Attractive high-shine, glossy finish.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • None.

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.

    Go to product!!
    • I've never worn any make up from the drug store since I was 15 years old (17years ago). I've always had trouble finding lip colour that doesn't dry out my lips, fade evenly and just look good from time I out it on til it wears or removed. I've tried almost every lip stick/balm from every department store brand. Very pricey, always collecting dust in my make up room. I LOVE this product!! I will never be disappointed again! This balm delivers every claim Paula's stated. I'm getting every colour!

    Very Moisturizing
    • This is wonderful. It just feels good to apply it and it has a lovely sheer color. It really does feel like a nice, moisturizing lip balm, with great color. The price is very good for what you get and there is a great color selection. I have #26 - Sheer Berry and I love it.
