Sonia Kashuk's Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss is a great choice for people looking for a lightweight lip gloss that also moisturizes the lips.

Ultra Luxe comes in a standard lip gloss tube with a wand-brush applicator. It feels smooth and cushiony when you put it on, and you don't need a lot of it to get a healthy dose of color. This gloss isn't sticky or goopy, and goes on with a high-shine finish. There is a very slight neutral taste when you first put it on, but it dissipates quickly.

Ultra Luxe gloss feels moisturizing the entire time it's on, and even after it's worn off, your lips feel softer and more hydrated. It wears for about 3 hours before it starts to fade, which is a bit above average for a lip gloss.

Ultra Luxe comes in a small but well-edited range of shades that include soft pinks, bright plums, and even a nude shade. Sonia Kashuk's eye for color strikes again!

Pros:
  • Gloss feels smooth and moisturizing.
  • The finish isn't sticky.
  • Color quality is strong.
  • Lips feel moisturized even after gloss has worn off.
Cons:
  • Slight neutral taste that dissipates quickly (so it's only a minor con).

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.

    Ineffective Applicator
    • I bought this gloss in Ravishing Rose even before Paula rated it. The applicator is a brush. When I think of a wand I think of a sponge tip. This is a brush that splays and stays splayed after putting it back in to the container! I dab it on my lips then use my finger to spread the gloss which is opque and creamy. I even tried to replace the applicator with one from my other glosses but they didn't fit.
