Tokidoki Cromatico Eyeshadow Singles (Brief Review & Swatches)

Brief Review: Of all the new Tokidoki products, the $15 eyeshadow singles were one of the "not too impressive" products in my opinion. It's not fair to say that for all the shades but in general, they're not anything to go out of your way for. Compared to all the other fabulous brands at Sephora, I'd give Tokidoki eyeshadows (as a whole) a C or C- grade. I found most of the shades to be chalky and/or not pigmented. I think some of them are alright but most are lacking -even worse than some drugstore brands. Keep in mind that I'm reviewing based off of me testing and swatching these inside the store. I did not buy any to test at home so I can't comment on the wear of the shadows or go into detail about each individual shade. The packaging is different -skull compacts. I'm not loving it or hating it -it's just different. I myself will not be buying any because I don't like eyeshadow singles in general and only purchase them if I absolutely love the specific shade.

Colors:

1. Adios Star- Black with silver glitter. (Very chalky)

2. Bastardino- Forest green with glitter.

3. Bulletto- Shimmery very dark brown.

4. Bruttino- Shimmery sky blue.

5. Carnivora- Shimmery ivory beige.

6. Choco- Shimmery medium bronzey brown.

7. Ciao Ciao- Irridescent lilac pink.

8. Diamante- Pearly champagne with a hint of pink and silver glitter.

9. Donutella- Medium nude color with silver glitter.

10. Killer Candy- Shimmery violet.

11. Nancy Rocks- Shimmery lavender with hint of blue.

12. Romeo- Shimmery plummy brown.

13. Samba- Shimmery frosty grey.

14. Savana- Gold with gold glitter.

15. Skeletrina- Semi-matte bright, true blue. (Chalky)

16. Soya- Shimmery medium yellow green.

Swatches.. (I did swatch all the colors several times. Some of them look like they've only been swatched once because they're not very pigmented.)
