Review + FOTD: Sonia Kashuk ‘Bronzed Beauty and ‘Coveted Coral 34’, Pixi ‘Cocoa Haze’

Target is sadly leaving Canada…although, if I’m being honest, I did not shop there much anyways because they had stocking issues. But I digress, while Target had many faults, its positive points were that it sold American brands such as Sonia Kashuk and Pixi by Petra (and NYX, e.l.f, etc). The point I’m trying to make is that, because Target is trying to get rid of all their stock, I got these items for 95% off! It was practically a steal.

Sonia Kashuk Quad in ‘Bronze Beauty

Top Left: pale champagne gold. Satin finish.

Top Right: medium tone, warm gold. Satin finish.

Bottom Left: not so much a shadow as a glitter. Not pigmented enough for a brush, must be used by patting on with a finger.

Bottom Right: Dark brown shadow with gold glitter suspended within it. The glitter does show up on the eye (but faintly). Satin finish.

This quad is fabulous. 3/4 shades are smooth, pigmented and easy to blend. The one glitter shade is a pain in the a** but I can make I can make it work if I try.

Pixi by Petra (Pixi Beauty) Fairy Light Solo No. 7 ‘Cocoa Haze

For a boring ol’ brown, this is actually quite pretty (when used in conjunction with other things of course! It’s matte for all intents and purposes but the barest sheen. I’d describe it as a brown with a hint of taupe. It kicks up powder in the pan, but it’s very pigmented and blends like a dream with a lovely silky formula.

Long story short, I was not too impressed by this product. By itself, it is very sheer, and on top of other products it looks good (especially in photos) but it is fairly thick and has a medium stickiness/tackiness. I much prefer my NYX Butter Glosses.
