Celebrate St. Patty’s All Over Again with Sonia Kashuk! [In Our Makeup Bag]


What It Is:

Sonia Kashuk Ultimate Weekender, Brush Couture Kabuki Brush and Eye Duo in Down to Earth*

Why This Should Be in Your Bag:

I’m not normally a huge St. Patty’s day gal (I know, I’m no fun), but when I realized that Sonia Kashuk is doing amazing, green accessories and makeup I had to do a review. We’re going to take a look at the Ultimate Weekender bag, the Brush Couture Kabuki Brush and Eye Duo in Down to Earth, all full of green!

How To Use It:

You wouldn’t likely use these 3 together and because the weekender is a bit more straightforward, I decided to just suggest a use for the eye duo and kabuki brush. The super-soft kabuki is great for buffing on mineral foundation, setting powder or your fave bronzer. The eye duo is a combo of taupe and olive green, which makes for a great eye look. I recommend using the taupe on the lid followed by the olive in the crease and outer corner for a fun, yet sexy, green look.

CC Rating: I’m going to rate each of these babies separately

Ultimate Weekender: A+

Seriously, this thing is the bomb dot com! I’m not normally one for makeup travel bags; I have a bunch and kind of make due with them. The Ultimate Weekender is jam-packed with pockets and is an organizational diva’s dream! I cannot wait to travel with this bag. I’m in love. It’s $29.99, but I consider it to be priceless.

Brush Couture Kabuki Brush: B+

This kabuki brush was surprisingly soft! Most of my brushes are a little higher end, but I actually enjoyed using this to apply my bronzer all over. It’s slightly smaller than most kabuki brushes I own and the $12.99 price tag makes it pretty appealing!

Eye Duo in Down to Earth: A-

Another surprise hit! This duo is absolutely stunning. I actually own shades that are quite similar, but if you don’t, it’s a great investment. The taupe actually reminds me of one of my HGs, MAC Satin Taupe. The wear time on this isn’t the most impressive, but it’s a great budget buy at $7.29.

All of these are available on the Target website and in Target stores!

I love my little hometown and all that goes with living in the Great White North - snow, skiing, hot chocolate, bulky knit sweaters. I'm passionate about a lot of things, but you'll most often find me writing about books, makeup and fashion. As I like to put it, I've got beauty AND brains.
