Overview

This lightweight liquid highlighter blends on smoothly whether mixed in with your foundation, used alone, or dabbed over makeup. Applied alone or over makeup it imparts a sheer, shimmering golden peach color that sparkles in the light; if mixed in with foundation, you get a subtle, warm golden glow. The fragrance-free formula can be used by all skin types, and also works well when used on the body.

True to claims, Super Sheer Shimmering Highlighter also contains some beneficial ingredients, including antioxidants, but because they are in such low concentrations it's nothing to get too excited about. Nonetheless, this is a beautiful and easy-to-use highlighter.

Pros:
  • Liquid texture blends smoothly, whether with makeup or used alone.
  • Imparts a shimmering golden peach color that highlights skin.
  • Fragrance-free formula ideal for all skin types (face and body).
Cons:
  • Anti-aging claims are, at best, exaggerated.

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.

Wonderful soft sheen

I am unable to find this anymore. Such a shame because it was truly outstanding and very easy to use. I hope the company reads these reviews, because they made a major error in discontinuing this product.
