Sonia Kashuk Dewy Luxe Lip & Cheek Balm

Since I've had Kaley my skin just hasn't been the same. My skin is still oily, but I find my cheeks to be quite dry so I've been leaning towards cream/liquid blushes to make the dryness less noticeable. On my recent Target trip I bought this lip/cheek balm that I now LOVE.

Enchanted 01- $9.99
 Simplify your summer beauty look with the multi-tasking Sonia Kashuk Dewxy Luxe Lip and Cheek Balm that imparts sheer, brilliant color to lips and cheeks. The weightless formula applies evenly with a wand applicator and blends to a dewy finish. Contains lychee extract for hydration and antioxidant protection. Enchanted is a bright pink shade. - Target website
Swatches - Not blended

I LOVE this product for so many reasons
  • The color is gorgeous.
  • You can use this on your cheeks and lips.
  • Buildable. You can use one application or several to get the look you want.
  • Lasts all day.
  • Easy to use. You just blend this in with your fingers!

I truly think this would work on all skin types. The only con I've found with this product is that it only comes in two colors. I want more!

What type of blush do you use?

Sonia Kashuk Highligher Stick

 I have been looking for a good creamy highlighter for a while now. I own the Benefit Watts Up, but it's not creamy enough and gets stuck a bit as I apply it. I also have a sample of the RMS luminizer, and while it is beautiful it doesn't last very long. 

I prefer cream highlighters because they are easier to apply and look more natural, rather than the "BOOM I have a spotlight on my cheeks" look.

 I came across this Sonia Kashuk highlighter at Target and had to try it. I bought the color 43 Persian Sunset, which is the darker of the two colors available.
 This multi-tasking radiance booster delivers the ultimate touch of glow to cheeks and eyes. The creamy, pearl-infused formula housed in a portable stick creates an illuminated effect, making it easy to selectively highlight features or add a healthy glow to bare skin. Triglycerides ensure that the stick blends smoothly and adheres perfectly and comfortably to the skin for a long lasting, brilliant shimmer effect. - Target Website

Sorry for the crappy swatch. A natural highlight is often hard to photograph.

I think I've found my highlighter holy grail!! The color is natural, applies beautifully, lasts all day, and for $11 I think it's a great deal!

You can buy this here - Sonia Kashuk Highlighter Stick.
