Sponsored Post: Sonia Kashuk's New Illuminating Bronzer is Beautiful!


Everyone's favorite Target beauty maven, Sonia Kashuk, is releasing some new goodies you are going to want to be sure to pick up. I was sent some products to try out and I have two favorites, one of which will totally surprise regular readers. But let's start with the one you are going to, without a doubt, absolutely covet.

(It's ever so slightly spongy.)

Illuminating Bronzer is a luxe-looking bronzer without the luxe price tag. The croc pattern is deeply imprinted into the surface, not just lightly stamped on the top. So, for once, you don't have to worry about immediately ruining the cool look of the product by using it.

(Swatched over bare skin. So pretty, even for us porcelain-skinned beauties!
And luminous enough to enhance darker skin tones, too!)

The color itself is a sheer wash of color that is nothing if not luminous. Depending on the brush and foundation you use, your results can differ. For example, this bronzer really grabs onto dewy skin, especially if you apply it with a dense brush. If you opt for applying it over a mineral makeup or for a powder finish with a fluffy brush, you will get a light, radiant, sheer touch of color.

(It even comes with a brush and a mirror for on-the-go bronzing.)

One odd noteworthy tidbit about this bronzer is that it doesn't show up on a brush. Don't continually try to pick up the color; it will be magically deposited on your skin after you've touched brush to pan and then brush to face. A little goes a long way. This isn't a powdery powder but feels and applies more like a gel hybrid. It reminds me very much of a bronzer that flew off of the shelves at EL last summer.
My cheeks tend to eat blush for breakfast, including bronzers. This one does hold up better than similar products, and I can get through an uneventful work day without needing to touch it up. If you are looking for a way to get a sun-kissed look without the skin damage, check out this bronzed beauty from Sonia Kashuk at Target.


So that other new release from Sonia, the one that I can't believe I'm in love with? Her new Satin Luxe Lip Color in Pink Punch! For me, this pink is positively neon. It's no secret I shy away from these kinds of colors, but I'm trying to dip my proverbial toe into the shallow end of the neon trend pool--and this color is perfect. It feels ultra-hydrating on the lips, similar to a high-end Sephora brand. The case itself is pretty stylish. The wear is amazing and the color is wow. It's really bright. Especially on me (considering the peaches I normally fall for).


It goes on feeling silky and hydrating, and it changes into a fully pigmented stain that wears forever.
Because I love you, and you can never have enough money to go on a shopping spree, I have a pretty sweet giveaway for you!

  11. When I use bronzer, I always add it to my cheeks, and right over my nose. Gives a perfect glow, and makes you look naturally tan, like you're not even wearing bronzer! :)

  38. I don't use bronzer too often, but when I do I tend to use a little under my cheekbones for contouring and a little on the high points of my face where the sun would hit. Still mastering the art :)

  53. This is SO gorgeous!  At first glance I thought it was a design on the packaging of the bronzer, not the actual product itself.  I usually apply a matte bronzer in the shape of a "3" to my temples, cheeks, and below the jawline.

  70. @ ReaderRita, I have the same fear. My skin is pale and rather dry, but I use a lot of moisturizer with SPF so sometimes it ends up a bit greasy in the humidity. So I, too, am afraid whatever I put over  my usual powder or concealer will turn some sort of very unflattering orange color. ;

  73. I am frightened of bronzers because most turn bright orange on my pale, oily skin, so I don't buy them. I WANT them, and I want them to look good on me, but I'm too afraid of being stuck with a product that produces the dreaded "clown face" to take a chance on one.

  82. since i'm very pale, i just apply the lightest amount where the sun would hit it. i used to do the "3s" on the sides of my face, but, tat was too heavy!

  85. That lipstick looks very summery and I would love to try that bronzer. I usually apply a very light touch to areas that are normally 'kissed' by the sun: Forehead and nose to cheeks are an easy way to look like you spent the day at the beach without all the skin damage and embarrassing peeling afterward. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  86. I put just a little in the hollows under my cheekbones and along my jawline.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Hmm...you have me intrigued now to try this bronzer. Fingers crossed I win the gift card!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I put it as a contour usually, but sometimes I add some golden glow to my skin by brushing it on all my high points (cheeks, nose, forehead)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Oh my goodness! I need that bronzer and that lipstick. 

    I usually apply bronzer right under my cheek bone line. I have to be very careful though because I'm really fair skinned. Thank you for the giveaway!
