Sonia Kashuk Fall 2012 Makeup Collection

Lips...

You know I love a good neutral pout, so even though I wasn't asked to review it, I bought the Sonia Kashuk® Lip Definer ($5.79) in Pink Whisper, and it is perfection. I actually used it as a base underneath the two rich lipsticks I tested out below.

The Classic Red is just that... a really perfectly classic red color. It's a great one to have on-hand at all times for the perfect red lips. The Sonia Kashuk® Satin Luxe Lip Color ($9.99) tubes make it really easy to see exactly what color you're buying. They are dead on. I liked the Plum Wine, but I thought it was going to go on a bit darker, with a fun 90's kind of feel, but it was much a softer effect, which in all reality, is more wearable.

Envisioning a strong contrast between the two colors, I first applied the Plum Wine to my top lip only and the Classic Red to my lower lip, thinking it would make a fun photo. But really, the colors were of the same intensity and worked so well together I ended up blending them together... see the very first photo in this post for a good idea of the blended color {though if you look really carefully, my top lip is a bit more plum and my bottom is more red ;} These lipsticks really glide on nicely and stay put without drying out my lips.

Nails...

The entire Sonia Kashuk® Nail Colour Fall Shades are amazing. My three favorites are Hocus Pocus, Emerald City, & All Vamped (see below). They are all really rich solids, vs. the fine glitter shimmer in the other colors, which are gorgeous as well. I have to say that I really love the brushes too. They make it easy to apply; polish goes on thick and smooth.

I really loved this entire collection. I've already incorporated the neutral eyeshadows and the lip liner as well as the foundation and illuminator into my daily makeup routine. I think for the cost of the individual products, it's surprisingly luxe and high end from the packaging, to the brushes and tools, and the actual products themselves. It a definite must-try if you haven't yet!
