My friend Marj got me the Tokidoki Arte Palette -Til Death Do Us Part for my birthday. This palette contains 4 eyeshadows and 1 blush, very convenient for traveling at a very reasonable price too :) It's been a long time since I've done a Face of the Day post, so let's get started:
First I applied the light pink all over the lid.
Next I lined my upper lashline with Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner, Purple Tang. It doesn't matter what eyeliner to use here because the eyeliner was simply used as a base before I smudged on the shimmery black eyeshadow. One thing I did notice is that the shimmers are only at the top layer, the bottom is just the black shadow only. A lot of companies do this - they make the palette seem all pretty and shimmery but once you start using it you find out the shimmers are just for show only >.<
Next I lined the bottom lashline with the blue eyeshadow.
Done with eyes! Here I used Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara.
Next I applied blush, which is what I liked the best in this palette. The color is nice, and the color payoff is good.
This palette, since it is Tokidoki, has very adorable packaging, but Tokidoki is really just a Sephora brand, meaning, the products are Sephora quality as well - very..... mediocre, I'm very inclined to say that Sephora brand (except brushes) are drug store quality at best. The eyeshadows are not that pigmented and the colors are just ok. The blush I actually liked though, but it's probably because I prefer blushes to be less pigmented so I don't have to worry about applying it with heavy hands and ending up looking like a clown. But I do appreciate that these shadows lasted all day without smudges :)
