Tokidoki Luminosa Powder (Brief Review & Swatches)

Brief Review: Prior to swatching this in person, I was really excited about this Tokidoki Luminosa Powder because online, it reminded me of Smashbox Soft Lights in "Shimmer" -but a cheaper version (it's only $22) with cuter packaging. Much like my assumptions of the rest of the Tokidoki line, I thought that this highlighter would be much more pigmented than it actually is. The product is sort of powdery (like the bronzers) and almost white! You can't really tell that it has a hint of pink. I think this could be used as a highlighter can be used on everyone but for those with fair skintones, it can be used as a "all over" powder to give the rest of the face some glam. Applied lightly, this gives a light sheen but applied more heavily, you get more of the shimmer.

Color: This currently only comes in "Kabuki," which is a soft very light, pearly pink that looks almost white.
