tokidoki Brillante Glitter Eyeliner

tokidoki Brillante Glitter Eyeliner ($14.00) are fun to try out, because there are so many shades and so many of them that are bright and vibrant and just fun.  I reviewed these a month ago, and I thought I’d share some photos and swatches of two more of the fourteen available shades.

  • Skeletro is a dark, navy blue with silvered-blue flecks.
  • Savana is a burnished copper-bronze with flecks of gold.

Savana is so, so lovely.  It has this all-over warmth of a flickering fire–really lovely with brown and green eyes in particular.  I think both of these shades are wearable without being bland; they’re vibrant enough to be worn alone or used with other products without competing.  I love the overall color pay off of these eyeliners, but they could be softer on the lash line.  They’re not super rough, but they’re not as smooth as Urban Decay 24/7 Liners either.  They’re more comparable to MAC Softsparkle Pencils.  Obviously, it’s the glittery bits that cause some of that roughness, and it’s nowhere near painful, but it’s something to note.

The packaging is adorable and fun — love how each pencil is a different color — and the price is just right.  I think these are fun eyeliners–maybe not must-haves, but they’re nice-to-haves.
