Sonia Kashuk Spring 2014 Product Closeup

New this spring from Sonia Kashuk at Target is a line of four Pearlescence Longwear Creme Eyeshadows.  With lipglossesque packaging and a doe foot applicator, the formula is initially more liquid than creme.  It blends onto the skin easily and doesn’t crease.

Tiger’s Eye is an opaque bronze that begins with intensity, but fades evenly over the course of the day.  It can be worn alone or, as I prefer, as a base for powder eyeshadows.  The photo below shows Tiger’s Eye a couple hours after application.  The medium tone and pearl finish stay true to the wearable philosophy of the Sonia Kashuk line.

The four available colors (Diamond, Moonstone, Tiger’s Eye, and Quartz) are light to medium neutrals each with the namesake pearl finish.  They are an easy transition for anyone looking to venture out of the powder eyeshadow world.

What are your thoughts on cream eyeshadows…do you prefer them alone or combined with powder?


Price: $8.99

Availability: Target

Summary: Sonia Kashuk Pearlescence Longwear Creme Eyeshadow in Tiger’s Eye adds more versatility to your makeup.  When worn alone the full impact fades slightly after a couple of hours but most of the color stays in place and it doesn’t crease.  A liquid formula that blends easily before setting, it makes a great budget-friendly base for powder eyeshadows.

    I cannot resist a bronze base and this one looks great! I also find that I like to add shadows on top of most of them, possibly because I don’t feel quite “done” if I just swipe one color and go, but this one does look pretty enough to ride solo because of that pearl finish! ;) I also like that it isn’t too metallic-y like other cream bases I’ve tried (Color Tattoos and even one of the MAC paintpots I own). This whole collection looks so pretty too – I’m going to have to check it out at my Target to see if it is here yet. :)

      I really love the spring collection from Sonia Kashuk. If you haven’t tried the Satin Luxe Lip Colors yet, there are three new colors and I love them all (Parisian Pink is above). There are new Velvety Matte Lip Crayon shades too that look amazing, but I’m still waiting for them to show up in store.

    I always get excited when SK releases new goodies. Definitely picking up that eyeshadow palette!

      Island Dreams as fantastic. I hope you enjoy it!
