Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color with SPF 16 for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color

New this spring from Sonia Kashuk at Target are fourteen lipsticks called Satin Luxe Lip Color with SPF 16 Suncreen.

These “weightless” lip colors help to soften, smooth, protect and hydrate your lips. They are anti-aging, packed with Ceramide 2 and Palmitoyl Peptide to help reduce wrinkles. They contain Brown Seaweed Extract, which is a fatty marine botanical which helps preserve elasticity.

Why SPF 16 instead of the standard 15? No clue, but I’ll take it! These are formulated to have no scent or taste.

The shades:

  • Soft Nude – Muted peachy beige
  • Barely Nude – Muted pink beige
  • Nude Pink – Pale muted pink
  • Sunkissed – Warm muted coral
  • Currant – Deep plum brown
  • Blushing – Warm pink
  • Roseberry – Warm raspberry
  • Sugar Plum – Pinkish plum
  • Rosette – Reddish pink
  • Violetta – Bold pink violet
  • Vivid Coral – Bold coral
  • Pink Punch – Bold pink
  • Ruby Rose – Bright raspberry reddish pink
  • Classic Red – Pure red

Let’s talk packaging. I love these square tubes! Something about a square tube pleases the photographer in me because they look neat and don’t roll around. But also there is a cool feature in the cap. The exact lipstick shade is shown and it’s totally accurate so you can really see what you are getting before buying.

Pink Punch, Barely Nude, Classic Red, Violetta

These lip colors are extremely, extremely soft and moisturizing. They feel very light and slick going on, almost like a petroleum type lip balm does. Really amazing. The color payoff is great also, more than you would expect from feeling how “airy” they are.

Pink Punch is bright and fun. Like melted strawberry juice on the lips! Love it for warmer weather months.

Barely Nude is a warm brown/pink. It looks more brown on me than pink.

Classic Red is a bright blue-based red. Fabulous and amazing. Perfect red shade.

Violetta is a pinky/purple color. On my lips it looks more like a warm purple/brown.

    I love the SK on the tips! Pink Punch and Violetta look like keepers for me.

  • April 19, 2012

    These look awesome, but $10? The cheapskate in me says no. (OK, maybe on sale.)

  • April 19, 2012

    Oh man! These are great! And hellooo, the price is AWESOME! :) :: runs to Target ::

  • April 19, 2012

    The color payoff looks really nice and they look nice and shiny. However I cant imagine that they last very long on the lips????? Any comment on that? I really like the looks of these!! :)

    • April 19, 2012

      They last 2-3 hours on me, which is typical for most lipsticks. I usually only comment on wear when something wears REALLY long or short.

  • April 19, 2012

    I really like Pink Punch and I think I want to check out Vivd Coral!

  • April 19, 2012

    These look really nice and at a decent price. I really like Pink Punch but am curious to go see the other colors. Guess I’m heading to Target soon!

    Barely Nude totally matches your makeup! Pink Punch is appealing, as well as the ingredients and SPF.

    I think I need Pink Punch! All of them look GREAT on you, but most of all Classic Red. It really is your red!

    They look great! You can easily wear all 4…but, I like the red best on you :) I think I’m going to buy Violetta and I’ll check out Sugar Plum too. I’m a pale face. The price is so good I’ll get more than one.

  • April 20, 2012

    I’m a sucker for a GOOD red, and I love square tubes and bottles. I’m glad you note that the cap color is accurate – it should cut down on regrettable buys. (But am I the only one who thought the tops were the bottoms? Most lipsticks that show color like that have it in the bottom. I’m not complaining, as this makes more sense, but I expect the klutz in me to open these upside down occasionally and make a mess.)

  • April 20, 2012

    Ohh wow! These r georgous & as usual I love ur comprehensive swatching of them. Violetta is ur colour as well as Classic Red! Can’t wait to go find some for me. :-)

  • April 24, 2012

    they remind me of those palladio lipsticks! wish we have sonia kashuk locally, sigh :(
