Next up on The Holiday Collection we have another Tokidoki product, the Chromatico Devil Girl palette.
The Devil Girl Cromatico palette which comes with six shades and a makeup bag, is the most bang for your buck if you want to stock up on some Tokidoki eyeshadows.
I believe this is a summer palette and lucky for you guys it’s on sale right now on sephora.com for $19 which is a great value because you are getting more eyeshadows than the regular Cromatico palettes (which are quads) and this is bigger as well.
Just relax and kick back, it’s Beach Club time! Join Devil Girl and the tokidoki crew as they hit the sunny seaside shores for sweet drinks, blazing temperatures, and adventures with colorful undersea creatures. Don’t forget your sunscreen, this club might be too hot to handle!
This palette contains:
– 6 x 0.06 oz Eyeshadows in Thirsty (cream), Riposino (shimmery light brown), Carina (pearl), Nancy Rocks (purple), Bruttino (pearl turquoise) and Bulletto (shimmery dark brown)
– Dual-door compact with tokidoki Beach Club print, 7 x 3.75 x 0.5″
– Devil Girl keychain fob
– Plastic tote, 7.5 x 4.5 x 2″
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
This palette’s dual doors open up to present six eyeshadows and a keychain fob of Devil Girl. Each micronized shadow formulation is infused with hydrating Japanese rice lipids and vitamin B to create a smooth, even-blending finish with a rich pigment that won’t fade.
This palette comes in a cute blue makeup bag made of plastic. It has an anchor on the front and a skull and crossbone zipper pull. I have a bazillion makeup bags already so I wasn’t that impressed by it but it’s pretty cute nonetheless and I’m sure I can find a good use for it.Like I mentioned, in this palette you are receiving six wearable colours. On the left side is Thirsty (top, a neutral beige), Bulletto (bottom, a shimmery brown), and Riposino (middle, a shimmery taupe), on the right side there is Nancy Rocks (middle, purple), Bruttino (top, turquoise blue), and Carina (bottom, white with big glitter).
The neutral colours in this palette heavily remind me of some colours in the Naked palette by Urban Decay; they are definitely colours that I already have, however, you can never have enough neutrals. Fortunately, this isn’t really a neutral palette. On the other side is where the fun is. You have a medium purple, a navy blue, and a white. These colours on the right are the ones that bring the palette to life. They are fun without being too much. They may be blue and purple but they are totally wearable. I can think of a variety of different looks I could create with this palette, everything from an everyday office look to a fun day at the beach (holidays in the Caribbean perhaps?)
So how does it apply? These colours, like the Cromatico palette in Adieu blend very nicely and apply smoothly. I was actually quite surprised at the quality of these shadows. I mean, Tokidoki isn’t really known for makeup nor is beauty its flagship product. Sometimes with these “novelty” lines it’s all about the packaging and the look of the brand but they often lack quality in the product. Not with Tokidoki. These shadows are smooth and apply great. I would probably compare them to a MAC Eyeshadow, but not as creamy as say an Urban Decay one.Here is a look that I created using this palette. I used Thirsty on the lids with Riposino layered over top then Bulletto in the crease. On the bottom lash line I used Bruttino then Nancy Rocks right underneath. This is more of a neutral look with a fun twist (on the bottom lashes) to mix the look up a bit. It’s like weekday mode on the top and weekend mode on the bottom, so to speak.
Finally, like the other Tokidoki palettes, you also get a little character charm/fob thing. With this product you get Devil Girl, an adorable red little devil who is listening to an iPod. I haven’t decided what to do with these yet but I think they are just such a nice touch that adds to the whole package.
So why did this make my holiday list? Well, like the fragrances, Tokidoki eyeshadows are not only adorable and cute, but they are moderately priced and pretty good quality. When it comes down to it though, I don’t really think a ton of people buy these Tokidoki makeup products because of the quality of the makeup, I think it’s all about the brand; how the product looks, what it comes with, the colours, the cute characters, the fact that it’s recognizable, etc. Luckily, for Tokidoki though, these eyeshadows are pretty good. I think that this palette would be perfect for teenagers maybe just starting off with makeup. With that being said, these products are truly a lot of fun so I believe that really anyone would enjoy them.
