Let me just say this again...I love tokidoki. So SO cute! And how cute is this palette? Totally adorable, right? I think so. The tin suitcase style palette is perfect for the traveling theme. The Donutella keychain is such a cute addition to it too. As for the eyeshadows, no they're not bold and bright, but they are wearable so for those of you who are a bit color-shy, this is the perfect palette for you. The softer colors coupled with the highly pigmented, smooth-to-apply dark matte brown make for tons of versatile, easy-to-wear looks. I personally see no real downfalls of this palette, unless you're into brights, in which case I suggest the Cromatico eyeshadow singles. Plus, you can't beat the current price of $19!

  3. I know...so cute, right? And they're not highly pigmented, so they're great for those who like a more sheer type of color. The brown is SO pigmented and easy to apply though. It's an awesome matte brown.

  14. The packaging alone makes me want to buy, I'm a real sucker for cutesy packaging. The colors themselves are very versatile and would make for great combos, both neutral and a tad more daring. Great palette great review!!!
