tokidoki Diamante Eyeshadow

tokidoki Diamante Eyeshadow

This shade was definitely better than Adios Star! The shade itself was smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend. I’m not against or for the packaging, but I still like the way it was done. I feel it’s cute, fitting with the brand, and it’s not cheap–it just doesn’t have that cheap feel of flimsy plastic. I like that each eyeshadow has a different colored top, because it’s a touch you see all the time. I can imagine that for some, these would be cumbersome to store, though.

Recommendation: I think that the tokidoki eyeshadows that aren’t described with “iridescent glitter” or “matte” may be the ones most worth checking out.

Guerlain Terracotta Lipgloss

Guerlain Cashmere Gloss

Guerlain Terracotta Lip Gloss ($30.00) is a lightweight, non-sticky lipgloss that delivers subtle color with SPF 15. It’s a very moisturizing formula that lasts about two hours on my lips. The shades themselves are sheer in color, but they really have an excellent formula. I’ve tried three of the six shades that came out — there are also: Sierra (#02), Grenade (#03), and Santal (#05).

Guerlain describes the applicator as ergonomic, but I have to tell you, it was really awkward for me. I don’t know if it’s perhaps more to do with the length of the applicator or the handle, but it felt a little wobbly in my hands, personally–but I would say I have bigger hands with longer fingers (I blame my piano playing years!), so that could be it, too.

They feel like a glossy, thicker lip balm, but they’re on the thinner side for a lipgloss. They still deliver the shine and glossiness that you’d expect in a gloss, but they keep lips looking full, pouty, and soft while you wear ’em. They have a slight scent, like most Guerlain lip products, but it seems subtler than is par for the brand.
