The collection includes a range of make-up products and accessories, all encased in decorative packaging by the brand’s creator, Simone Legno. Legno is of Italian descent, but his main inspiration for tokidoki derives from Japanese culture and anime, as showcased on the collection’s eye-catching exterior.
Products that I think will be ones to watch are:
i). Cromatico eyeshadows ($20 CAD) – these are available in 16 shades and boast quality Italian and Japanese finely milled ingredients that glide on to leave a smooth, velvety finish (currently, I’m test running the eyeshadow in Samba – review will follow soon!)
ii). Fantastico Lip Stain ($20 CAD) – now i know my friends are going to make fun of me for this, but I’m actually quite drawn to the idea of a ‘mango’ flavoured stain. Oh yes…and all day wear – I suppose that’s appealing too :)
iii). Perfetto Eyeliner ($21 CAD) – I’m all about precision when it comes to make-up applications, so the chisel tip of the Perfetto liquid eyeliner is right up my alley! The formula is waterproof and comes in some seriously funky colours for liquid liner (i.e. even pink, bright blue, white). They can be used for lining the eyes, but also for doing temporary body art. I smell artistrhi kit essential on this one… :)
tokidoki will be available exclusively at Sephora as of May 2010. To celebrate tokidoki’s launch in Toronto, the Sephora at Eaton Centre will be hosting a meet-and-greet on May 13th with the line’s creator, Simone Legno. While you’re there, you can also receive a complimentary make-over inspired by the tokidoki collection from a member of Sephora’s Pro Make-up Team….and just to entice you even more, if you’re one of the first 200 people to spend $25 on tokidoki products, you can also receive a free mini-gift from tokidoki! Please check with Sephora Eaton Centre for further info.
