Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Quad in Bed of Roses

So here is another Sonia Kashuk product that I didn't photograph brand new because I didn't expect to be reviewing it.  Sigh.  Anyway, apologies for the less than stellar looking product below.  It is all my fault for using before photographing.

The Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Quad in Bed of Roses seems like it would be pink leaning based on the name, but it's really not.  The pan that looks pink above actually isn't.  It's just sparkles with no real pigmentation.

  • pink looking shimmer - just shimmer with no real pigmentation, pink or otherwise, very cool, doesn't adhere particularly well and tends to transfer and fall out like crazy.
  • matte cool light brown - underwhelming color payoff, very stiff. Has glitter in the pan but it really doesn't translate to the skin at all.
  • metallic cool gray brown - buttery soft, crazy pigmentation, excellent payoff
  • metallic taupe/purple cool - buttery soft, crazy pigmentation, excellent payoff.
This is a drugstore product, but definitely on the pricier end of the spectrum. Is it worth it when only half the shades are any good? Normally, I would say no, but the two metallic shades in this palette are absolutely phenomenal and they're very taupe leaning and I am such a sucker for a good taupe eyeshadow. For me, it's worth it. If you're not such a taupe fiend, it may be a miss.

Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Quad #45 Bed of Roses contains XX grams of product and retails for $13.69 exclusively at Target.

Overall: 7/10
