Reader Swatches: NEW Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty Smoky Palette Shadow Box

If you missed my previous post or haven't yet heard about the new Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty collection, this collection is now available in-store at Target as well as on the Target website HERE.

If you don't know the story behind this collection, watch this short interview with Sonia Kashuk:

Today I have swatches of  the Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty Smoky Palette Shadow Box for you, thanks to longtime reader @freakumbee on Instagram. By the way, @freakumbee is a palette-swatching-machine! If you're on Instagram and you don't follow her, you really should. She's an absolute sweetheart and she always has many of the latest drugstore and higher-end products swatched on her page; she's a great resource.

Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty Smoky Palette Shadow Box as swatched by @freakumbee

This palette retails for $24 (0.34 oz.) exclusively at Target both in-store and online HERE. For size perspective, this palette contains the exact same amount of product (0.34 oz.) as the Maybelline "Nudes" palettes like THIS ONE. So if you haven't seen the Sonia Kashuk palette in person yet, it is travel-friendly (aka: small). Considering that the Maybelline Nude palettes contain 12 pans and this palette contains 16 pans, I think that gives you an indication as to the size.

The Sonia Kashuk palette contains both matte and shimmery finishes. @freakumbee said all of the shades are smooth and that the pigmentation is great with this palette. @freakumbee also swatched the highlighter in this collection HERE (she didn't care for it because she said that it's not that pigmented, and the color is more of a bronzer than a highlighter). 

Once again, you can check out the entire Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty collection HERE, if you haven't yet seen this collection in-store.

Have you purchased any of the items in the Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty collection yet? If so, you know I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks again, @freakumbee, for the great pics and swatches. I truly appreciate it!


  1. I just picked up the Featherweight Liquid Lip last night, thinking it was a liquid lipstick. But it's not, it's a very sheer pink gloss :(

  2. Holy cow! Thank you so much for posting this!!

    When I saw your first post, I knew I needed anything with the boxing gloves on it. My boyfriend is professional fighter.

    But then when I saw this and the video, I freaked. We live in CA, Central Coast/Bay Area and we have gone to NYC 3 times for him to fight. We actually weigh in at this gym!! So I may need more items than I though for collection purposes.

    If it wasn't for you and your wonderful blog (that I check daily) I would have never seen this.


  3. I picked this up last week and was not a fan. I wish my had swatched like this but sadly it was a chalky mess. I was disappointed because I love her Eye on Neutral palettes.

  4. I've seen it in person.. the shadows are not just small, they are tiny. Less than 1/2" squares. Just so you know what you are getting if you order it online.. I was really surprised.

    1. Yup...I saw it over the weekend and totally agree... I'd say each shadow is the size of my thumbnail? Too small for $24.99 IMO.
