Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Duos ($7.99) are a great, budget-friendly way to satisfy your eyeshadow fix. Today, I thought we’d take a look at two duos:
Dynamic Duo is a mix of pale, seafoam green and a dirty brown with silver-gray frost. Dynamic Duo works really well with the cooler weather these days, as it’s just dark enough to work with autumn tones, but it’s not so vampy that it’s too dark, either. Dynamic Duo is a very wearable duo, and I didn’t find either shade to be chalky or hard to use. Both shades were pigmented and had a frost finish.
Double Whammy is a vibrant, medium blue with a soft sheen and a bright pop of springy green with yellow undertones. Double Whammy is one of my favorite Sonia Kashuk duos, because it is extremely pigmented, but it is also vibrant. Sometimes it can be difficult to find this kind of brightness in the drugstore, but Sonia Kashuk gives us a good answer for bright blues and greens. The blue reminds me of MAC’s Freshwater, while the green is kind of a mix of MAC’s Swimming and Juxt.
Guerlain Gabrielle Le Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick
Guerlain Gabrielle Le Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick($45.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a sheer, baby pink with soft shimmer. It’s creamy in texture, and the formula keeps lips hydrated. This shade wears so-so; I get about three or four hours without having to reapply, but since it’s lighter, once it starts to fade, it’s more noticeable on me. It’s not as opaque as I’d like, and it reminds me of the way MAC lustre lipsticks look on me (which I don’t love). I wouldn’t recommend this shade as the first Rouge G to own, just because it doesn’t represent the lipstick as well as some of the other shades.
