Perfectly Neutral| Sonia Kashuk

pn

You know those dozens of little quads and duos from the drug store that  you have just hanging out in a drawer, because your palettes get all your attention? Well, I have started to hate that. So, I decided to start doing looks with them for all of you, so I can decided which ones I love, hate, etc. I want to mention that this series will not contain any of the popular Maybelline or Cover Girl ones, because they are not cruelty free. I really wish they were though because I am hard core starting to miss those brands. With that intro out of the way, let’s begin.

I am sure you have heard of the Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral all matte palette about a million times. After using that for a while, I decided I really didn’t like it. I mean the ELF Mad About Matte palette is like half the price and so much better. But, I still have a ton of Sonia Kashuk palettes sitting around, we are going to discuss the Perfectly Neutral 6 pan palette.

You can purchase it for $14.29 at Target. Does anyone else think that $14.29 is an incredibly random price?

First and foremost I think it is important to mention that not one shade in this palette is 100% matte. Even the two brown shades that look like they could be matte have some shimmer in them.

The formula of the shadows is extremely buttery. They actually remind me a ton of the Lorac shadows, even down to the powderiness. The shades, are very pigmented, aside from the two semi-matte ones, I felt that those took longer to build up. Which isn’t really that bad, I use these mainly for the crease and would prefer to be able to build my crease shades rather then starting off with a  brush loaded with product anyway.

  • I primed my eyes with the Wet n’ Wild Photo Focus ye primer.
  • I took the 1st shade in the 2nd row in to my crease to use as a transition.
  • I took the 2nd shade in the 2nd row and put it in the middle of my lid.
  • After that I took the shade under it and put it on my outer lid.
  • Then I took the 2nd shade in the 1st row and put it on the 1st third of my eye.
  • To deepen it all I took the 1st shade in the last row and buffed it in to my crease and under my lower lash line.
  • To highlight my inner corner and brow bone I used the 1st shade in the little palette.
  • I did a small wing with my Too Faced Liner marker.
  • I decided to try out the Max Factor mascara because I was getting questions about it after it was sent to me. I do not like it. The formula is too wet for me, and the wand has a lack of bristles that does nothing for my lashes. I ended up going over it with my Pacifica Dream Big mascara.

There is my eye look with my makeup all finished!

Other Products Used:

  • Too Faced Born This Way Foundation and Concealer
  • Too Faced Primed and Poreless setting powder
  • ELF Contour Kit
  • Becca Highlighter “opal” (Pressed)
  • Glossier Rose Balm Dot Com

Who needs this?:

If you have a ton of palettes, I would pass on this. It is just a ton of super simple shades. But, it is really nice quality and looks beautiful on the eyes. If you do not have a lot of makeup and have a matte palette, but just want some basic shimmers, I think this would be a fantastic little palette to pick up. I think I am going to start using it to travel, sense it is small and can create a beautiful natural OR dramatic look!
