Review: Tokidoki Cromatico Eyeshadow in Soya


Hi Dolls :)
This time I have a short review for you. I got this pretty eyeshadow a while ago from Aria :)
I love the packaging, it's super cute but super unpractical (it takes a lot of space on my shelf) and the "mirror" is useless.

What they say about it:

What it is:
A bright, high-impact, highly pigmented eyeshadow housed in an iconic compact design featuring tokidoki's signature heart and crossbones.

What it does:
This super-playful, wearable, collectible shadow strikes the perfect combination of edgy and cute, in a rich, blendable formula that creates fade-proof color that pops. The shadow comes in sixteen vibrant shades and three finishes: "Matcha Matte", "Soft Water Pearl" and "Tokyo Glitter". The extraordinary array of colors and textures means endless possibilities for expressing your personal style.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

What else you need to know:
Each stunning shadow is inspired by a tokidoki character and comes in a tokidoki-logo-shaped compact, with a heart on the outside and skull pan on the inside. These products are not tested on animals.



Soya is a pretty vivid yellow-green pearl eyeshadow that comes packaged in a cute box with great design.



Do you see how big it is for how much product?



It looks great swatched as it's such a pretty colour, but on the eyes it isn't very well pigmented. :/


Pros: 
+ Cute design
+ Not tested on animals
+ Love the texture and the formula
+ Without parabens
+ Lots of colours to chose from

Cons
- The mirror inside is useless
- Not very pigmented
- Big packaging 
- Price 


Overall:
It's a really nice colour, but I'm used to really pigmented eye shadows (and those are the ones I love) and I think there are even prettier eye shadows for less.

Price: $15 in USA or 20€ in EU
Rating: 3/5 
Repurchase: No 


XOXO Parisky

That's really a lot of money for such a small eyeshadow - but the packaging is to die for! <3

I depotted mine. I like Soya for a soft falloff with bright looks rather than an actual intense color payoff. Can't beat Sugarpill Absinthe though, for an actual bright greeen!

I figured Tokidoki is worth a try, but I reached pretty much the same conclusion as you after trying it myself! Plus, the packaging is REALLY fragile----If you see it in store, you'll find that 3/4 of the lids have actually snapped off due to repeated use. It's a cute line, but REALLY not useful if you are anything but a 12 year old who doesn't actually have any "real" makeup to compare it to.

nuusheftw: hehe :D

ElectronicRainbow: agree with you :/ and the packaging really is extra cute :D

nail crazy: hehehe :D Imajo jih v Sephori.

thepaintedmask: Gosh, now I want that Absinthe eyeshadow! I'm a sucker for bright colors :) Too bad for the packaging. I didn't notice that since I've opened it only two times :P Hahaha, for the "real" makeup ;)
