bag: sonia kashuk yarn print double zip clutch, $14.99
balm: sonia kashuk moisture luxe tinted lip balm in hint of pink, $8.99
i am dy-ing over the spring collection from sonia kashuk. we are talking brand new packaging across the board, tons of new products at incredible price points and pretty, pretty color as far as the eye can see. i love when such an accessible brand gets it so right and sonia has nailed every single spring trend.
the bag combines two of my favorite silhouettes – a dome shape and a double zip. the dome shape is ideal for stashing makeup of varying shapes and sizes and the double zip means that you can keep tools and product separate if that’s your game. then there’s the matter of the shiny gold hardware, the contrast trim and the yellow patent zipper pulls – not a detail was missed.
as for the balm, i think “balm” is a negotiable word here. this gorgeously pigmented lippie is more of a super sleek and hydrating lipstick. the tint is powerful, almost opaque, but the balm-like formula means your lips are lush and happy (no dried out weirdness).
the absolute best part about this pairing is that you can scoop it up at your local target and the total cost is under $25. (i don’t know if you’ve been doing the math, but that’s about as much as i tend to spend on one lip product at sephora or the department store counters.)
