Sahara Sunset Spring 2015

Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset For Spring 2015!

Picture this... You're in Morocco, it's the golden hour. You're leaning against a sunlit terra-cotta wall, your hair glimmering in the evening light. You feel the warmth of the sun on your skin. You feel alive! Confident and strong, complete and at peace. You know in that moment, you'll carry that glow within you forever... Sonia Kashuk captured that feeling with Sahara Sunset. Her travels through Morocco were the inspiration behind this collection. 

When I first spotted Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset in Target, I immediately recognized it was something really special. Frankly, in the past couple of years, I had lost interest in the makeup collections launching each season, nothing sparked my interest. Part of the reason for that is, I found myself and my chi, or mojo... (for lack of a better term lol.) I learned how to recognize who, where and what I truly connect with in this life... I could go on, but that's another post entirely lol. We're here to talk makeup right?! Well Sonia Kashuk nailed this Sahara Sunset collection, every product here is a winner. Can we also just take a moment to appreciate this cool packaging, it has a high end feel with an art deco style!

Arabian Dreams Sahara Sunset Highlighter

Arabian Dreams has four light-reflecting shades to give you that lit-from-within sun goddess glow. A soft warm terra-cotta coral, glimmering sand, peach champagne, and nude shimmer. There are the tiniest flecks of gold that catch the light beautifully throughout the colors in this palette. The texture is smooth and buttery. When tapping your brush in, be gentle. Poking a rough bristled brush at the product or using a heavy hand may kick up a bit of powder. I feel it's better to lightly sweep your brush across the top and tap off the excess, to conserve product. This is Limited Edition as you know. :)

Desert Escape Sahara Sunset Eye Palette

Desert Escape features six buttery eyeshadows, an ombre of shimmering sands. In the center, a deep chocolate matte compliments this warm tone palette, I use this as an eyeliner and smoke out the lash line. Below that is a matte soft brown, I've been using this as a blending out color. On the left, is a shimmering natural taupe and a sultry bronze. On the right, a glimmering golden sand and nude champagne.

Casablanca Sahara Sunset Blusher

Casablanca is a matte warm coral blush, that gives you that effortless sun kissed glow. This powder blush is richly pigmented and the texture is buttery smooth. ...Can we just talk about this tight little package for a minute. ;) Casablanca was made to travel, this compact blush is going to fit in your purse like a dream and how adorable is this dome top? It looks like a fancy lip balm.

Marrakesh Bronzing Blush Stick is a multi-tasking bronzer and blush stick with fine gold-tone pearl for luminosity. Sweep it across your face where the sun naturally gives you color, then blend out for a healthy sun-kissed glow. Apply over foundation or on bare skin. The formula is lightweight and blendable. Non-sticky, non-tacky, non-greasy.

Nirvana Sahara Sunset Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Colour

Nirvana Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Colour is a high-shine hydrating lipstick, that plumps lips instantly with glossy sheer color. Infused with moisturizers and amino acids to inhibit the weakening of collagen fibers. This multi-tasking formula smoothes and softens the lips. 

There were two colors created for Sahara Sunset. I chose Nirvana, a warm earthy terra-cotta nude. I love it! It looks quite bold and bright in the swatches but it's juicy, lightweight and easy to sheer out. Eden is the pink version. I didn't purchase it but if it's anything like Nirvana, I'm sure it's gorgeous.

Sonia Kashuk Sahara Sunset Nail Colour

Sonia Kashuk has created two nail colours for Sahara Sunset; Sand Dune, a shimmering sand for an effortless safari chic nail. And Sun Ray, a vibrant coral hue with a flawless cream finish. Sonia's award-winning 3-free, chip resistant formula delivers brilliant shine and bold color. 

This is the first time I've experienced Sonia Kashuk Nail Colour and I'm loving both of these colors, they're absolutely gorgeous! I can see my nails living in these all spring and summer long. I don't own anything similar to Sand Dune, so it's totally unique to me. Sun Ray immediately reminded me of my holy grail coral nail polish, Maya from Zoya. But Sun Ray has a slightly more orange-coral based undertone, ugh... living for these!

The formula of these are impressive, they apply so easily and set beautifully! Sand Dune and Sun Ray are full coverage. In the swatches, I applied two thin coats of each. 

I just purchased these nail polishes last night, so I haven't been able to test their wear time yet. But I'll update this post on the wear time in a few days.
