Sonia Kashuk "Flushed" Beautifying Blush Swatch + Review

Sonia Kashuk Blush in "Flushed"
Why have I heard absolutely nothing about the Sonia Kashuk blushes? I've heard lots of things about the Sonia Kashuk eye makeup remover and about their concealer quads but absolutely nothing about their blushes--which is truly a pity. Because I hadn't heard anything about them I was a little hesitant when I picked them up. They're a little expensive for a drugstore product ($9) but they are easily some of the best blushes to be found at the drugstore.

Every drugstore brand has a line of blushes but in my experience almost all of them have a hard formulation and poorly pigmentation. It's very frustrating for a blush junkie like myself.  But these blushes are super soft and apply like a dream. On my trip I bought two new MAC blushes but since I picked up two of the Sonia Kashuk blushes I haven't touched them. The MAC blushes are lovely but I prefer the formulation of the Sonia Kashuk blushes better. The shade range isn't very large with only six shades but I was very impressed by almost all of the colors in the range.

Here is an up close view of the product. You can't tell from any of my pictures but this blush has a bit of shimmer to it. It isn't obvious when you apply it to the face but it's certainly noticeable in the pan. Although, I noticed that the layer beneath the top layer is less shimmery.

Here is the blush applied to my hand. It gives a lovely pop of color to the cheeks. If you blend it well, it just looks like a natural flush--making the name very appropriate. However, I should warn you to be very careful when applying the color. It's very pigmented and it's easy to apply too much by accident.

POSITIVES
-Soft and pigmented formula
-Easy to Blend
-Available at any Target
-Price ($9)
-Packaging
-Fantastic shades

NEGATIVES
-Small range of colors

In conclusion, I am a huge fan of the Sonia Kashuk blushes. I only own two shades--"Flushed" and "Sunset"--but they're both fantastic. I can't wait to try more. These are definitely the best drugstore blushes I've ever tried--hands down. Surprisingly, I actually prefer these to my more expensive blushes from MAC. Never thought I'd say that. Well done, Sonia Kashuk.
