New Addition To The Taupe Pink Sith Family - Sonia Kashuk Burnished
On my never ending quest for the unicorn. (The Sonia Kashuk Highlighter Brush) I wandered through the cosmetic aisles in Target hoping I would find something inexpensive to quell my hunger for new makeup. Then I saw it. Taupe! Taupe Eyeshadow! How could I resist?
Sonia Kashuk eyeshadow single in Burnished is a VERY close dupe to BECCA Lame eyeshadow. It's a nice brownish-greyish taupe with microshimmer.
For less than $7 this is definitely wallet friendly so I snatched it up. Like Golem from "Lord of the Rings" I stroked the eyeshadow whilst in line. Chanting "My Precious" under my breath. It's so odd but I always have people let me go in front of them in line when I do that. People are so friendly!
So here's the 411 on the shadow.
While it's similar to Becca Lame it's hardly a dupe. It's harder than BECCA (but really what shadow isn't?) and tends to be ever so slightly warmer than BECCA too.
Most important, it does not blend as well as BECCA. It blends very nicely, but when comparing the two the Sonia Kashuk Burnished is a tad chalkier than the BECCA Lame.
All in All I think it is lovely and a nice addition to my Taupe Family. I know I will get a lot of use out of it!
Today I am wearing it with BECCA Chantilly and MAC Brassbeat Liquidlast Liner (My favorite taupe liquid liner)
