Since around 2 months ago, I’ve been experiencing what seems like the return of a phase in my life that a doctor described as chemicals in the brain going out of whack resulting in an inability to feel happiness. Uhmmm, I didn’t get a 2nd opinion so… it’s not true.
I’m in that quasi-state when I received a direct tweet from one of the nicest people in the universe telling me not to buy the Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Creme Bronzer because she randomly saw it at Target and bought it for me for no reason at all. Just like that, I felt lighter. Whoever said stuff won’t make you happy probably didn’t know which stuff to get. Haha, but seriously, I think it was the ‘random act of kindness’ coming out of nowhere that made me feel better. Thanks Bea!
Hopefully, I get to pay it forward and be that person who makes someone else’s day better. (I know what you’re thinking — no, I won’t give random people free makeup :P).
I read about a man who searched the world for what happy people have in common and he observed three things. Apparently, happy people are:
- Positive, and;
- Helpful (this probably also includes doing nice things)
The list makes sense to me.
Although, of course, this wouldn’t work 100% for those currently in the moment of having sadness as a legitimate disease — which, I don’t have right now, in case you’re wondering. I’m just having an overall feeling of normal person extra-sadness.
Going back to what I intended to talk about — yes, there’s a Sonia Kashuk craze going on among my brain cells at this very second. I’m still holding off getting a few more stuff *eyeshadow palettes*, but here are some of what I bought (exc. bronzer) over the past couple of months:
So far, I’m loving everything from Sonia. But what I love most is the price point. SK is a drugstore brand! All the other makeup artist product lines I know of are high-end.
Each of the velvet matte crayons are *hold your jaw* only $7.59. The most expensive of Sonia’s face makeup stuff costs $14.99, but on average, everything’s at $9 to $10.
They are difficult to get here in Metro Manila because, if I’m not mistaken, SK products are exclusively sold at Target. :(
Anyway, Sonia has two products I am really keen on getting (they totally killed my want for a viseart palette). Say hello to the Eye on Neutral Palettes (Matte and Shimmer).

I am sure I’ll be buying the matte one, the only question is when (and how).
