Tokidoki At Sephora: Tokidoki Prisma Lip Gloss Review and Swatches
Tokidoki at Sephora garners some attention if you’re a packaging junkie. I happen to be just that so of course I’m all about the cuteness that is Tokidoki makeup!
Tokidoki combines an ultra cute packaging combined with the super sweet flavor and scent of blueberries to bring you their Prisma Lip Gloss.
What is it?
Tokidoki Prisma Lip Gloss is an inexpensive $15 sheer lip gloss with ultra cute Tokidoki themed packaging! Loves it!
Wow, what a lovely gloss. Not only is the packaging super nice but I absolutely adore the gloss. The gloss features a cute gloss cap that holds a Tokidoki character inside a snow globe of shimmery confetti! Quite sweet. The gloss itself is super sheer and subtle with a CRAZY sweet scent and taste, I’m talking SERIOUS taste here. The gloss feels very nice on my lips and gives them a super high sheen shine. Its comfortable to wear sans a sticky, tacky feel and the taste just makes it extra special in my opinion. A rather nice gloss! But it has its downfalls which I’ll share with you in a second). I got the shade Samba which is a sheer peachy pink but honestly pretty much transparent for the most part. I love that they embraced a Japanese spatula applicator. Many of my Asian lip glosses sport this style of applicator and for me it makes it SUPER easy to apply, layer, and get a fuller lip look using such an applicator like this.
Sadly, I was every so slightly disappointed with the packaging. It feels like they spent more effort working on the outer packaging that the gloss comes in (which you’ll toss out or keep if you’re a hoarder like me) than they did with the actual gloss package. The TokiDoki images aren’t anywhere on the actual tube of gloss and you’re only privy to the brand name. The actual character in the (I got Samba a sweet little monkey) cap is adorable but is covered in chunky pieces of shiny confetti so you can barely see him. As much as I adore the taste and feel of the gloss on my lips its incredibly short wearing! The gloss slides off your mouth within mere minutes of putting it on. If you layer it you may get an hour out of it but no more than that.
Who might love it?
- Tokidoki fans!
- Beauty junkies that adore kawaii packaging!
- Fans of super glossy gloss!
- Anybody who adores a yummie smelling, tasty gloss.
Who might hate it?
- Women who like their gloss to wear all day!
- Anyone sensitive to heavily fragranced makeup.
- Anyone not interested in cute packaging that could be deemed immature.
This had the potential for greatness written all over it but sadly the wear time really kills the deal. I still love it but I’m quietly trying to justify to myself if I need more colors because honestly its like buying the same gloss over and over again since the shades are all transparent with zero pigmentation and the only difference is the cute packaging.
I like it alot and think its worth getting at least one but I wouldn’t go too crazy and purchase several as they will all pretty much perform the same way.
Very nice but has a few flaws.
