Drugstore’s Tuesday: Sonia Kashuk Dewy Luxe Lip & Cheek Balm in “Enchanted”


Well! Here we are: Target Canada is closing TODAY. I’m so sad for all the employees (and for myself) because I really enjoyed their stores … Adios e.l.f, Sonia Kashuk, NYX & Pixi. 😢 Even in a bad situation, there’s always a positive side, and in this particular case, it is called discount/clearance, so I took advantage of the big 50 to 80% rebate happening (for what was left I have to say)!

You know (and probably start to be tired of reading about it) of my infatuation with creamy cheek products (in fact cheek makeup in general). I’m just in love with them, but they are kind of tricky; they are either very good or very bad; so how about this Dewy Luxe lip & Cheek Sonia Kashuk balm


The Good:

♥ Very “natural” no shimmer pink flush tone. BEAUTIFUL!

♥ Fragrance-free super lightweight formula infused with litchi extract for hydration (very fancy – just kidding)!!!

♥ Dewy finish but somehow not sticky at all when it dries. (Yeah!!!!)

♥ Once it sets, it doesn’t budge.

♥ Apply sheer but is amazingly buildable to your desire.

♥ Sonia Kashuk line is a little more expansive, but still drugstore wallet friendly.

♥ There is little to no transfer of color when applied on the lips (No coffee rim stain- Double Yeah!!!).

♥ Cruelty-Free

The “NOT” so Good:

♥ Not as good on the lips as every multi-tasking lip/balm products I’ve ever try, it’s a little drying .

♥ Just two shades are offered “Charmed” which is peachy-coral hue and “Enchanted” is bright pink. (Not a real problem)

♥ The applicator is a brush, like nail polish, that you dip into the bottom to get more color, therefore, a lot of product will be wasted.

♥ I don’t think it will show up much on dark skin tone girls.


Bottom Line:

You need this little tube of wonder in your life, I love it so much! I put 3 dots on my e.l.f small stipple brush and apply it on my cheeks with gentle circular motions (you don’t want to rub off your foundation). This thing gives such a very pretty natural hue. Sincerely, a must for spring 2015 and that is if you haven’t already splurge on the Stila “Field of Florals” Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette 😉 I HIGHLY recommend this one … Impeccable formula.

How come nobody’s talk about Sonia Kashuk products?! A real mystery to me!

Thanks for Stopping by Beauties

  1. I’m so sad Target is leaving Canada as well! I didn’t even have a chance to try any Sonia Kashuk products. I do follow her on instagram though and they all look so amazing.

    Thanks for sharing these faves. I might have to check if they’re available online!

    1. I bought 6 makeup items from her line during clearance & they are all REALLY good. I don’t understand how come nobody talks about this brand ?! Thanks for your comment Erin💖
