Look what I found at Sephora! Tokidoki rollerballs :>
As usual, Tokidoki displays are almost-nauseatingly cute and very eye-catching! Whenever I see a new Tokidoki display, it instantly grabs my attention (my wallet, fortunately, is just barely spared)
Each fragrance is inspired by a particular Tokidoki character. The heads of the corresponding character fit on top of the cap of each rollerball.
There are 6 available (from top, clockwise):
Sephora (exclusive): $23 CAD for 0.33 oz
While I love the look of sleek, black packaging, I just can’t help but get all googly-eyed for fun and adorable products like Tokidoki’s. I recently spied the Robbery Palette at Sephora and naturally went *_* for the cutesy characters cluttered all over the packaging. This palette is actually comprised of three separate palettes, each with four Chromatico shadows (0.02 oz each) and a blush (0.16 oz). You can keep them all together in an equally adorable tin or remove one to take on the go. But (cue TV ad voice) that’s not all, because when I swatched them I was pleasantly surprised by how soft and smooth these shadows are.

As mentioned in yesterday’s fotd, I took a roadtrip over the border into Washington in search of American makeup goodies and deals. In Canada I rarely come across buy one get one sales, but there were tons at Walgreens. After looking at everything I picked up, I realized I bought a lot of Wet n Wild. It’s one of those brands that is ridiculously cheap and but isn’t cheap quality. There are lots of WnW products that I haven’t seen in Canada.
The spoils of war:

To people who fell in love with the super adorable tokidoki characters on the packaging of the exclusive line at Sephora:
rejoice, because there’s new cuteness to be snagged~
Just arrived is the Pittura Brush Set, three eye makeup brushes that are overloaded with tokidoki love all over the handle of the brush, topped with the face of a tokidoki character.
The brushes are made with synthetic hair and are antibacterial.
Seriously, these brushes are so ridiculously cute, down to the matching colours on the tips of each brush (pink for Donutella, blue for Mozzarella, brown for Adios Amigos) and work out to be pretty cheap too: at $46 CAD, it’s about $15 a brush. User reviews on Sephora are positive, with comments about the high quality of the brushes and their super-softness. Jenelle and I were awwww-ing all over these earlier today. Since it seems like a really good value, I might actually buy this set.

If you aren’t in the know, tokidoki is a line of apparel and handbags featuring adorable characters from “collections” such as Moofia (cow/dairy-themed) and Cactus Friends. The handbags are super colourful and rather pricy too, but they have a very loyal following, I think. The handbags might look kind of busy at first because the tokidoki characters are all over the place, but the cuteness grows on you, honest.
I was super excited about the tokidoki cosmetics collection coming out in Sephora, and kept checking the website to see when it would appear on the front page or the Just Arrived page. No luck. Then I saw that Muse had picked up a Fantastico Lip Ink and reviewed it! I found tokidoki on the brand drop-down list and it is indeed available for sale.
I suppose Sephora has been too busy promoting Tarina Tarantino to give a heads up that it’s now available? /huffs
Anyway after going through the product list, here’s what I’m getting googly-eyed for (click the name to open a new window and see the product page on Sephora)
Luminosa Powder ($29 CAD) is a “sheer highlighting powder”. It only comes in Kabuki (pretty pink), and could probably also be used as a blush for the fairer-skinned. For me I would definitely be using it for highlighting or all over the face for pretty colour.
