You’re in for a very pleasant surprise if you’re lemming all over the new TokiDoki.
Available in variety of shades for $15 sporting feisty packaging and a wicked formula, I’m a really likey TokiDoki Cromatico Eyeshadow.

Check it, these are larger than MAC shadows! I think everyone was somewhat curious about the packaging as the shadows appeared to be quite small with a ton of packaging surrounding it. Turns out they are $15 and larger than a MAC shadow, sweetness right? Each shadow is .07oz/2.0g versus a MAC Shadow that’s 1.5g/.05oz.
Each shadow comes in a different color skull and crossbones packaging which I thought was delightful. What I also found joy in is the fact that the packaging sports either a glittery or a matte finish on the lid as per what the shadow content finish is on the inside, kinda cute right?
As cute as the packaging is I do find it ever so slightly bulky and felt like the pan of the shadow was a little to tiny making it messy to work with as it kicks up quite a bit of loose powder when you’re swiping around in such a small space.
It looks like pigmentation will vary from shade to shade as I got two duds and one nice shade. Two shades came across really sheer and one was quite pigmented so I guess it really depends. Some won’t love the microglitter in the shadow. The glitter is much like what you’d find in Urban Decay Eye Shadow however alot less fall out but ado some folks just can’t dig on glitter in their shadow. Keep in mind this is GLITTER not shimmer.
Shades I got were Carnivora which is a sheer pearl pink sans glitter. Pigmentation is decent on this but not wow aspiring. I also got Diamante which is a very pale pink with silver glitter, much of the color pay off on this would be the glitter as the actual shadow applies very sheer. The best of the lot is Savana which is a gorgeous shimmering gold and my favorite of the three.
I do have to say that I find this particular packaging a tad childish. I love cute but this probably toes the line a little bit as the crossbones comes across a little immature.
Overall, I like Savana so far so I have hopes the darker shades in the line will prove to be gems where as the paler shades appear to be the ones that I’ll avoid in the future.
I’ll definitely purchase more shades as I like the finish of Savana and also the price is not bad in the least. I’d even recommend a purchase on these and a Muse Approval however I’d suggesting waiting for an in store purchase so you can swatch and play prior to a purchase.
Available now from Sephora.
