Review: Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color in Roseberry & Very Berry

The packaging is sleek and feels high end (as it should because this is a higher priced drugstore lipstick)

I clearly do not need any more cosmetic products because I probably will never get through the stack I currently have. However, I’m also going through a bit of a lipstick phase right now…okay, I’ll admit it, I’ve become a lipstick hoarder. The fact that Target is closing down in Canada (so sad) spurred me on to go buy even more unnecessary, but beautiful makeup. Two of those products are Sonia Kashuk’s Satin Luxe Lipcolour in Roseberry & Very Berry.

The Details:

  • Paraben and fragrance-free
  • Contains Brown Seaweed Extract, a marine botanical rich in fatty acids that preserves skins elasticity, Ceramide 2 and Palmitoyl Peptide to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • SPF 16 to protect against UV rays

Neither of them are particularly ‘berry’ shades, in fact Roseberry is a pink almost-nude on me and Very Berry is a warm mid-tone pink. Both are beautiful creamy shades that dispense a lot of pigment on the lips in one swipe. Due to their creamy nature, they are not the most long wearing (reapplication will be needed after eating). Nevertheless, they make up for this by being quite moisturizing. Having the SPF of 16 doesn’t hurt either! I’m only 21 and therefore do not have many/any wrinkles at this point so I cannot attest to its anti-aging properties, but these lipsticks do give the slight illusion of fuller lips due to the shine they impart.

The packaging is beautiful in its simplicity. It is a sleek black square shaped bullet with Sonia Kashuk written in white on one side. Yet it is the fact that they have the exact colour shown on the top of the lipstick that really impressed me. For lipstick junkies, this is very helpful to see what colour the lipstick is (especially if one has multiple in the same line). Last, but not least, the inside of the lipstick is embossed with the SK logo – Roseberry on the top of the lipstick bullet and Very Berry on the front which looks very chic.

Roseberry has quickly become of of my every day favourites! I look forward to trying out more Sonia Kashuk products in the future (I’ve got my eye on the Shine Luxe Sheers)!
