3 Ways to Update Your Fall Makeup Bag for $20 or Less

Wearing the Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Palette in Jewel of an Eye ($19.99) and Satin Luxe Lip Color in Pinky Beige ($9.99)

Fangirl moment!

I have a big-time makeup crush on Sonia Kashuk. I mean, have you tried her $6 Bent Liner brush?? It will change your life, I swear. She’s totally down to earth, too, and incredibly nice (I interviewed her once). Her affordable, top quality products are among my favorite reasons to visit Target.

For good deals on some exciting, on-trend pieces this fall, check out Sonia’s new releases, and if you’re too busy to sift through it all, here are three eye-catching products from Sonia’s fall collection, each priced at $20 or less.

1. Eye Couture Palette in Jewel of an Eye ($19.99)

Go from bland to glam in seconds with the emerald, amethyst, ruby, amber and sapphire eyeshadows in the Couture Palette in Jewel of an Eye. It comes with just about every jewel-toned color you could want to wear this fall at a pretty awesome price (works out to about $1.67 per pan).

The rich, pigmented shadows don’t even suffer from fallout, so they’re not just affordable; they’re also good.

Pick a shade you like, and draw it softly along your upper lash lines for an impromptu cat eye liner, or blend it on your lids for something smokey.

2. Eye Couture Palette in Eye on Neutral Shimmer ($19.99)

If neutrals are your style, keep an eye on Sonia’s Eye on Neutral Shimmer.

Its colors softly shine on lids, and catch the light without emphasizing fine lines or wrinkles (yay!). Perfect for classic fall smokey eyes in brown, bronze, gold or gray.

Are you familiar with the Urban Decay Naked Palette? If so, Sonia’s take on neutrals is a budget friendly alternative with many similar shades.

3. Satin Luxe Lip Colors in Pinky Beige and Spiced Berry ($9.99 each)

Upgrade your game, and your makeup bag, with Sonia’s creamy Satin Luxe Lip Colors in Pinky Beige, a neutral beige for warm and cool skin tones, or Spiced Berry, a rich cranberry/brick red.

These lightweight, moisturizing lipsticks look just as lovely with neutral or jewel-toned eyes.

Do you have any favorites from Sonia Kashuk’s line? Inquiring minds want to know.

  • I love Sonia Kashuk! I was very disappointed I couldn’t get her Moroccan Dunes quad. I can’t wait to try out her lipsticks!

    • Hi Aditi,

      I love her stuff too! Maybe keep checking Target to see if you can find Moroccan Dunes. I’ve seen it on sale there in the endcap display. :)

      What are your Sonia must-haves, btw?

  • Oh I’m definitely digging Eye on Neutral Shimmer (as if I didn’t have enough neutral eyeshadows already)! Great picks, Karen! No access to SK here, so jealous you guys get to pick up reasonably-priced new makeup at the supermarket!

    • Hi Sunny,

      Well hopefully you’ll make it out here soon so you can stock up on some Sonia goodies. :)

      Have a nice day!

  • Headed to the Target website now!!

    • Hi Noemi,

      Awesome! Have fun shopping, and let me know if you need any other Sonia recs. :D

  • I can’t wait to get my hands on the Eye Couture Palette in Eye on Neutral Shimmer and the Satin Luxe lip colors for fall. The Sonia Kashuk section is the first place I stop by when going to Target!

    • Hi Hannah,

      Me too. Do you have her Bent Liner Brush? It’s amazing!

  • I’ve got to AT LEAST have the bent liner brush – I am seriously eyeliner-challenged!

    • Hi Carla N.,

      It’s great with gel liners, especially. Makes it really easy to control the thickness and placement of the line. I hope you like it!

  • I used the bent liner brush this morning! These palettes look fantastic for the price and will be hard to pass up. I have Moroccan dunes and like it quite well.

    • Hi Meredith,

      I loooove the Moroccan Dunes palette. It’s quite Chanel-esque, don’t you think?

  • Can wait to look for these items on my next Target run … for milkbones for the pup of course.

    • Hi Peggy,

      Ha! Of course. I’m going tonight to stock up on gravy for Tabs. But if I happen to wander into the makeup section…

  • [...] out 3 Ways to Update Your Fall Makeup Bag for $20 or Less in my latest post on the Ladies’ Home Journal beauty blog, Gloss [...]

  • I love the Jewel of an Eye pallet but I’m not sure there is a UK stockists :-( must spend some more time googling.

  • Can’t wait to try these… Lovely colors :)

  • The Spiced Berry lip color looks very interesting! Lightweight, moisturizing and under $10? Sounds like a winner. :)

  • Thanks for the tips! These all look great
