tokidoki Cromatico Eyeshadows!

I made a pretty huge Sephora order recently because I had a little over 500 points on my Beauty Insider account and wanted to cash in my points! I wanted something small and inexpensive originally but I ended up spending a little more than I bargained for! With these eyeshadow purchases I also ordered the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh perfume which Ive been dying to have since summer and since it will be Spring soon enough I thought it was perfect timing. With this eyeshadow set I got SIX amazingly coloured eyeshadows. The colour selection and pigmentation on these are amazing and are valued at $99.00 originally but I got all of these for only $36.00 which is a steal!

Samba and Diamante

Samba is a really beautiful champaign colour that is so velvety and soft! This will be great for inner corner or a wash over the lid! As for Diamante, it is a beautiful light pink with chunks of silver glitter, great to look at but I cringe at the fallout!

Choco and Soya

Choco has to be one of my favourites! It is a great almond colour that will be great for everyday wear. Soya is a very unique colour, not a lot of folks can pull off bright green eyeshadow, but I feel like this will be great for days when you want to stand out, or even under the lower lash-line for a pop of colour which is very in for the spring/summertime!

Killer Candy and Bruttino

These last two eyeshadows are something I definitely wouldnt buy as singular eyeshadows and thats why I thought it would be perfect to buy this set! Killer Candy is a very wearable bright purple as it has blue undertones which will draw anyones eyes to well, your eyes! Bruttino is a nice smooth looking blue that would go great with brown or blue eyes. I feel like if I ever grow a pair to wear this shade all over my lid, this could really bring the attention to my blue eyes!

Overall I think this eyeshadow set is a great deal! Not only for the money, but the quality of these eyeshadows. They are so pigmented and velvety, I would consider them the same feel of Urban Decay shadows. These six shadows come in the perfect aray of colours because there are many natural, wearable colours along with some bright ones you might not have tried otherwise. The only downside I have to these are the packaging, super cute but the colour on the outside is a sticker and they peel off instantly. Other than that little packaging quam I have no bickering about these eyeshadows and they are a great deal!
