Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Formal Affair Palette Review!


Hey everyone! Exciting post for you today, I just wanted to let everyone know about this amazing limited edition palette I was able to purchase at Target!! It’s the Sonia Kashuk Formal Affair Palette, and it retails for $20!! Amazing deal and totally worth the price and more! 😀


“Brighten winter skin and create classic makeup looks for any occasion with this luxe compact. The golden bronzer flecked with subtle gold shimmer adds an instant glow, pairing perfectly with the matte pink blush for a rose rouge or the shimmery coral shade for a natural looking flush. Illuminate eyes with this quad of soft, blendable eye shadows in universally flattering metallics, including a pearly winter white, nude sparkle, shimmery chocolate brown and silver gunmetal gray shades. The conveniently slim and stylish black tweed case also includes a full size mirror – perfect for touch up’s between holiday shopping and soirees.”


It is overall a face palette, coming with two blushes, one bronzer, and 4 eyeshadows. The quality of the palette is amazing, it reminds me of Asian eyeshadows or Dior eyeshadows. Very fine and smooth texture, and shimmery.


The palette itself looks like a clutch!! It’s very sturdy, mostly made of metal, and has a really nice black fabric outside. It looks like a formal festive sweater! This palette is perfect for the holidays, and the upcoming New Year’s Eve!


It’s also very thing and travel friendly, it’s a bit weighty, but I like that. Perfect to put into your purse on your night out, or if you are traveling somewhere and in need of a quick spruce.


This palette is GORGEOUS. It has a huge mirror on top which is really nice and handy, and the three face powders are up top, and the eyeshadows on the bottom.


The colors overall I would say gear a bit warm, perfect for light/medium skin tones, but could also work for deeper skin tones. The bronzer I felt was more of a bronze tinted highlighter, so I think it could be used as one. Most the eyeshadows are extremely glittery, you need to use some sort of base! But overall, very buttery, smooth, and pigmented.


The effects of these eyeshadows are perfect for a party or night out if you want to achieve a more natural/formal/party look. I’d say the white and dark brown eyeshadows are satin finish, and the lighter brown and black are glitter based.


Here are the swatches! GORGEOUS.


The eyeshadows are SO pretty. The pigmentation is amazing, Sonia Kashuk always delivers on quality for the price. These feel like high end eyeshadows and perform as such. Again, this is a shimmery/glittery palette, so if you’re not into that you might not enjoy it as much! 🙂


Here are the blushes and bronzer/highlighter! The blushes are variations of light/med pinks. Very flattering on the cheeks! And again the shimmery bronzer shade could be used as a highlighter to deeper skin tones!

Overall, LOVE this palette, totally recommend!

What do you guys think!? 🙂



  1. Love this – saw it at Target just a couple days ago too, but I didn’t pick it up – maybe I should go back 🙂
    The clutch packaging is my favorite part though, does the bottom tray with blush/eyeshadows pans come out so you can reuse it?

    1. Hi! It’s definitely a great buy if you like shimmery shadows. The quality is great. You can re-use the clutch but the palette itself is glued in! You’d have to use it up first I think or depot them.
