Rarely do I get super excited about a drugstore makeup release. However, the moment I saw the Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Pretty Cheeky Face Palette I knew I had to have it! I even paid $15 for Express Shipping!!
The Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Pretty Cheeky Face Palette is special for quite a few reasons. It is supposedly the LAST makeup item that will be released by Sonia Kashuk as she is stepping down as creative director from her brand. This announcement makes me really sad. I love the Sonia Kashuk line at Target. I cannot find any official press release that states if the brand will continue without her. (see her announcement on her Instagram page here).
This face palette, like most Sonia Kashuk products, has adorable packaging. The design on this palette is super cute and looks like a fun doodle. This compact face palette comes with a blush, a bronzer and a highlight shade. The size of the palette is very small (slightly smaller than my iPhone 6) and made of plastic but it does not feel cheap or flimsy. The doodle design, paired with the bright orange, is even more adorable in person.
The highlight shade is SO buttery. I was so impressed when I swatched it. It is very pigmented both when you swatch it and when you apply it. (Although my husband says he cannot see it on my face). It did not apply glittery or too shimmery, it actually looked really pretty on the skin. The bronzer is warm-toned but definitely not too orange. It actually looks very similar to the color my skin turns when I have a real tan. This will be a perfect bronzer to warm up my face during the summer. The blush is a very pigmented orange-red. However, when you apply it onto the skin (with a light hand) it looks like a natural rosy flush. If you have fair to light skin then I would apply the blush with a very light hand.

What do you think about Sonia Kashuk stepping down from her brand? Will you be picking up the Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Pretty Cheek Face Palette?! My first impression is that I am really impressed with the quality of this product. What other drugstore new releases are you most excited about?
