Tokidoki for Sephora is Totally Adorable

Not too long ago, a tasty little morsel of a collection popped up on Sephora's website to tease us all. Tantalizing our color-craving palates, Sephora and Tokidoki have been brought together into a collection that demands attention. Tokidoki brings us not only a full range of fun products, but also bright pops of color, and the most adorable packaging ever.

Since sailivating over browsing the collection on the website, I must confess that I felt the intense urge to play with the products in person. The very day the collection launched in my store, I hippity hopped on over to assuage aforementioned urge by swatching, assessing, and ultimately purchasing a few pieces of Tokidoki for Sephora Goodness all for my very own.

Didn't think I would keep you in a Tokidoki-less void now did you? Here are my thoughts on the items I purchased.

Prisma Lipgloss in Devil Girl

Devil Girl is a warm, popping red that deposits the perfect amount of color and jelly-like shine. One of Tokidoki's strongest selling points is the cute packaging, and the lipgloss is no exception with it's prism-like tube of lip product goodness. The cap to this cutie holds a character surrounded by glitter, and prisma gloss scores additional points in my book for it's silicon spatula applicator and blueberry scent.

Perfetto Pen Liner in Arlecchino

It is no secret that my liner applicator of choice is a felt tip pen. Almost as if they were reading from my beauty wishlist, Tokidoki's creators launched an easy to use pen in shades beyond basic (and boring) black and brown. While it bears mentioning that these aren't waterproof like other brands I have tried, they do hold up rather well on me. I went against my natural inclination to purchase the purple, and I instead picked up the deep blue Arlecchino. This liner goes on blissfully full of pigment, and the thickness totally depends on how I am feeling that day. Methinks I need to pick up more shades, just because I can.

Cromatico Eyeshadow in Soya

Cromatico boasts three different types of finishes in it's shadow family. The mattes are intense, getting down to the color business without any preamble. The pearls offer up the most versatility in my book, as they are both creamy and high on the pigment factor. Rounding out the bunch are the glitter shades,which provide low levels of pigmentation, but high levels of sugary, chunky sparkle when you need it most. It goes without saying that the heart shaped skull and crossbones is totally adorable, especially for matching the shade housed on the inside. Of course I picked up Soya, which is an intense lime green in pearl finish that glides on and stays put.

Swatched: As you can see, the pigment factor on all three is high. Well played Tokidoki, well played.

My first taste of Tokidoki has left me wanting more of it. Next up, I have a review of the Diamante quad.

Whoa, that eyeliner is insanely pigmented! *__* and Soya kinda reminds me of Sugarpill's Absinthe
