New Makeup Looks with Toki Doki Palette

Yesterday I stopped into the Sephora in Soho and picked up something that made me excited about makeup again – Toki Doki’s Robbery Palette!  Let me back up for a sec.  It’s been a minute since I did any makeup posts.  The reason is twofold – one, I work at a pretty conservative office so my daily makeup has to be tame, and two, I got a little bored with the products I had.  However I’m a sucker for the clever adorableness that is Toki Doki, and this palette just happened to be on sale for the very sweet price of $39 (marked down from $49).  If you’re looking to snap one up, do it quickly because a MUA artist there gave me the inside scoop that they’re almost gone.  Just wanted to show you all this cool set and a look I did using the products!

The Robbery palette comes in a keepsake tin, with a big magnet to cuten up your fridge or file cabinet.  Aw!

Inside there are 3 separate palettes.  “Royal Pride” has shades of gold and brown.  “Arlecchio” has cool shades of blue and green, and “Rapina” has some dark, smokey shades.  Each palette has 4 eyeshadows and a blush.

Here’s the FOTD I created with all the Arlecchino colors, with bold bright eyes and nude cheeks and lips.

I find Soya and Meteo to be the best eyeshadows in this palette.  They are pigment-rich with great, vibrant color payoff.  (Always use an eyeshadow base for long wear and maximum color payoff.)  Ninja Dog is more sheer.  Although I don’t think it would be too impactful on its own, here I used it to blend between the Soya and Meteo.  Candy Cane is a very shimmery platinum.  It’s pretty hard to work with as it has a flaky texture.  Even though I only used a dab to highlight my browbones, I ended up with shimmers all over my face.  And Momobella, the blush, is lovely and tawny with subtle gold shimmer, and should work on all skin tones.

Non-TKDK products I used: Almay concealer, Physicians Formula color correction pressed face powder, MAC Chartru paint, Rimmel jungle pencil (on waterline), Mary Kay nude lipliner, and a peachy Sephora lip gloss.

Watch this space for more looks using this palette, coming soon!
