You can never go to Target just to pick up one thing, right? Well, I know that very well. I went to Target for printer ink and I walked out buying more than what I needed. From the title, you can guess what I’ve added to my purchase; Sonia Kashuk products. I’ve heard about this brand a while ago so I was curious about it. Then, I saw their products right when I walked into Target. I took that as a sign, of course!

Items that I’m reviewing:
The holiday limited edition brush set
Full Allure eyelashes
Dramatically defining gel eyeliner
Eyeliner Brush No. 107
Iridescent Brush Set (5 essential brushes)
These brushes are better than I expected. I’ve been using them every time I do my makeup since I bought it. The brushes are comparable to the It cosmetics brush set that I adored, and that says a lot. The quality is very nice for the price of the set. You get 5 truly essential brushes since these are what you need for a complete makeup look. I highly recommend this set!
- Buffing Foundation Brush: for liquid or powder foundation blends flawlessly for an airbrushed look.
- Angled Powder Brush: for loose or pressed powder; versatile for applying blush or contouring.
- Small Fan Brush: for highlighter or loose powder; use for a soft application of powder or to clear away excess product.
- Small All- Over Eye Shadow Brush: for cream or powder eyeshadows; ideal for expertly covering the entire eyelid.
- Smudge Brush: for cream or powder eyeshadows; applies, builds and blends eye makeup for a perfect smokey eye look.
Full Allure Eyelashes with glue
“For that super alluring look! Contains pair of eyelashes and glue.”
I had high hope for this and yet, I was disappointed. The case made it looked more “professional” than the other false lashes I’ve tried, therefore I was expecting good quality. To be honest, I took the lashes off while I was at work because they were so uncomfortable. Not only are the lashes thick but the material was hard. I could definitely feel I have something heavy on over my real lashes. To sum it up, it feels cheap. Nope, I would not recommend this at all. There are more affordable ones with better quality out there.
Dramatically Defining Long Wear Gel Liner
“The Sonia Kashuk Dramatically Defining Long Wear Gel Liner defines and lines the eye with a long-lasting gel formula that glides on evenly. Apply the signature Ebony shade with a light touch for a polished, precise look or lavishly lay on the color for a unique appeal.”
The gel eyeliner, love it! The false lashes were a disappointment but this product was not. The gel eyeliner is soft and smooth. It’s very easy to apply on. After it has dried up it can be hard to remove, which is a good thing! So, You do need makeup remover to remove it effortlessly.
Core Tools Bent Eyeliner Brush – No 107
“For dramatic definition, this brush’s bent shape works with the natural contour of your eye to deliver a smooth, straight line every time.”
I also bought the eyeliner brush and have been using that with the gel eyeliner. The brush is soft, yet stiff enough for easy eyeliner application. You can draw a thin line with it. Definitely high quality with an affordable price! The best eyeliner brush I’ve used so far.
