Today, I am reviewing my first lipstick from the brand Sonia Kashuk – this is the Satin Luxe Lip Color SPF 16 in the shade “Very Berry.” Read on to find out more.
The luscious, anti-aging lip color with a sophisticated texture provides nourishing ingredients to plump up lips for added firmness. The paraben and fragrance-free formula contains Brown Seaweed Extract, a marine botanical rich in fatty acids that preserves skins elasticity, Ceramide 2 and Palmitoyl Peptide to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and SPF 16 to protect lips from UV rays.
My Experience with Sonia Kashuk Very Berry Satin Luxe Lip Colour SPF 16:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a rectangular black plastic packaging with Sonia Kashuk printed on it. The name of the lipstick appears on a sticker at the bottom. The top of the cap has a colored band which matches the color of the lipstick and helps in easy identification. The cap shuts tight smoothly. The bullet itself has the brand initials SK stamped on it which looks quite classy, but it has already almost wiped out within a few days of usage 🙁
Shade/Pigmentation: Very Berry is a beautiful shade of pink. It is a lovely shade which instantly brightens up your face and will suit all skin tones. It is a shade which is apt for all occasions including day time or office time wear. The lipstick is decently pigmented and one swipe is enough to cover the lips. I personally like to swipe it twice, but swiping it multiple times leads to slight clumping of the lipstick.
Texture/Finish/Lasting Power: This lipstick is quite creamy and applies very smoothly on the lips. There is no tugging involved. It feels quite moisturizing on the lips and there is no need to wear any lip balm underneath it. But, the lipstick is not very forgiving to any dry patches or chapped lips. It tends to accentuate them and also clumps a bit. The finish is a satin matte and I personally love this kind of finish as it gives a nice soft look.
The staying power of the lipstick is around 4 hours. It does transfer a bit, but that is always a problem with such creamy lipsticks. It can survives light snacks but not a whole meal. An added plus is that this lipstick has SPF 16 and is paraben free.
Pros of Sonia Kashuk Very Berry Satin Luxe Lip Colour SPF 16:
- Classy packaging.
- Lovely pink shade.
- Decent pigmentation.
- Glides smoothly on the lips.

- Contains SPF 16.
Cons of Sonia Kashuk Very Berry Satin Luxe Lip Colour SPF 16:

- Tends to accentuate dry or chapped lips.
- Clumps a bit when layered.
Would I Repurchase Sonia Kashuk Very Berry Satin Luxe Lip Colour SPF 16?
Well, I would not go all out to recommend it. It is a decent formula but nothing out of the world. You can try if you like a particular shade. I will not repurchase this exact shade but might purchase a different shade if something catches my fancy.
