Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tints Review and Swatches

I just got done meeting up with my best friend Jai for some incredible sushi (yums!) and in he walks with a little bag swinging from his arm that contained all three of the Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tints. He hands it over and says, "Biatch, don't tell people on your blog about where I pick up hot guys!" Obviously, I can't accuse Jai of not reading my insanity here on Musings, he sees all, hears all, and knows all. Oops.

Thank Jai, I'm a love you for buying me liquid tints to review.

So jump ahead for a review of Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tints sponsored by Jai!

As I was telling you last night these intrigued me especially since I enjoy liquid stains and such in the Summer, well ok all year round I love stains.

These little guys come in a generous pump bottle in three different shades for $9.99 each. The novelty is the scent! Teehee! They have a slightly fresh, fruity smell. It's the little things in life that really delight me and the smell of these kinda made me smile.

The shades are all rather loud, bold, and outrageous but once they are blended out it's a subtle, natural finish. I admit I was a tad disappointed they weren't as pigmented as I had hoped. The consistency of the formula is a runny gel which was also a little bit disappointing as I was hoping for creamy.

They blend nicely but you may find that a single pump won't do and you'll want to build up color with maybe a drop or two more. Actually it's quite a great little blush if you like to slowly build color up or just prefer a subtle kiss of color rather than full on blushing cheeks.

I like the pump applicator as it distributes product nicely enough but it does have a little bit of a learning curve as pressing too hard ends up with too much product. A very slow pump will get you just the right amount of blusher so be gentle. The bottles are a cheery color that matches the blush inside, very cute in my opinion.

The shade selections are Peony which is a hot fuchsia pink, Poppy which is a peachy coral, and Rose which is a rich red rose shade. I'm not favoring any of the shades as I think they are all gorgeous colors and each offers a nice flush of color. I don't think the product will work well on dark skin girls as it's a bit to subtle however anyone that's fair or medium can very well take advantage.

I haven't worn out as of yet but I do have Rose on right now and I'm taking a trip to the movies in a little bit so we'll see how long it wears after sitting through Manhattan traffic and a two hour movie. So far it's wearing quite well but I'm wondering if it might melt off after a bit....I'll tuck it into my makeup bag just in case I need a touch up.

Overall, I think Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tints make a find addition to your Summer make up bag. The inexpensive price tag, pretty colors, and light formula is quite pleasing for Summer wearin'. If you're a lover of a more natural finish to blush these should please. Definitely worthy of a look at this price!

Anyone try yet?

Hiya muse! Thanx for the review *^_* That looks pretty interesting. I have tried cream, powder, and stain blushers but not gel type. Can you use these as lip tint as well?
By the way, this is not make up related but I remember reading about how you like doctor who (I <3 it too!) and wanted to share this j drama called 'Mr. Brain' if you haven't heard of it. It is not exactly the same genre as DW for Mr. Brain is more like CSI but kimutaku's role (a.k.a. Mr. Brain) reminds me of our Doctor very much IMO! So if you haven't, you shud def. check it out since there's isn't gonna be a DW special this summer :(
