Wednesday's Rave: Sonia Kashuk's "Red" Lip Crayon


'Tis the season for festive red lips to wear to your holiday parties and events. The problem is finding just the RIGHT red for your skintone. So when Sonia Kashuk blogged about her perfect "red" lip color - actually called "Rosey Nude" - I was skeptical. The first thing that threw me was the name, because there's nothing "red" about it. Second was the formulation, which was a matte crayon vs. a traditional lipstick.

But I tried it nonetheless, and was immediately sold. Don't get me wrong: I'm not an "everyday red" person. But for special occasions, this lip crayon is perfect. The texture is actually more velvet than matte, and you can either dab it on with your finger (or a lip brush) for a softer stain or swipe the crayon directly on your lips for a bolder look.

The only bummer is that this color isn't sold online, so you'll have to head to your local Target store to find it.

I own a few shades of red, so why not add this festive crayon to the collection? Thanks for the post.

I saw this in a magazine and have wanted to try it ever since. Your review was just the little push I needed to pick it up next time I'm at Target.

Sara and Marie, I hope you like it! I find the color very complementary; just remember that you can "layer it on" (as I indicated in my post) to get a softer or more intense saturation.

Thanks for the great recommendation! The color is flattering and the price was just right.

Camelia, yes: I've used her foundation in the past and have liked it. But for about the last year or so I've used her tinted moisturizer (vs. foundation) and love it!
