Sonia Kashuk Lip and Cheek Tint

Not too long ago I invested in the Benetint Pocket Pal, which contains Benefit's imfamous cheek stain. As stated in my review, I've been pretty happy with this product. However it is pricey ($18 for the Pocket Pal, $28 for a bottle of the cheek stain alone). So when I heard that Sonia Kashuk had come out with her own lip and cheek tint for Target, I was more than a bit interested.

Well, I finally made it out to the store to get some yesterday. At $7.99 a pop, this product is much easier on the pocket book. At home and anxious to give it a try, I unscrewed the top and was pleasded to see the little roller ball applicator! Benetint Pocket Pal (not sure about the stand-along version) has an applicator that's a little brush, sort of like a nail polish applicator. This always made me a bit nervous when putting it on, since the liquid is a stain meaning I definitely didn't want it to spill, and after applying a few strokes of the brush on my cheeks I was always rushed to screw the cap back on (to avoid spills) and free my hand again to spread the product before it "stained" as a couple small streaks. It always worked out fine, but there was a bit of a nervous factor there.

The Sonia Kashuk stain, however, has the roller ball applicator, which means chances of spilling the liquid and staining everything in sight are practically nil. And I can simply roll a few strokes onto my cheeks and smudge immediately, recapping afterwards. These may seem like little things, but they are significant to me. ; )

The color of the Sonia Kashuk stain is nice, a deep rosy color that gave me a near perfect match of the flushed look I always seek. I also used it on my lips and was pleased-- the color was nice and pinkish, as opposed to Benetint's which could seem almost a hint of orange-y when I used it on my lips.

Bottom line: In this day and age where stains are all the rage but only available at high prices from Sephora, this lower-priced but still high-quality product is very much welcome and worth a try! I apologize for not having a picture-- I could not find one anywhere online, and my own attempts to take a picture with my digital camera failed miserably. You should be able to find it easily enough at Target. The bottle looks like Sonia Kashuk's lip glosses, in a rectangular shaped tube with a white cap.
