Tokidoki Cromatico Eyeshadow Palette in Adieu

Yay for coffee and waking up, woot! I am finally awake and feeling like a normal human being; for a Monday that is. ;)

As you might know, the Sephora VIB 20% off sale is going on until tonight and I was able to grab a couple more items this weekend. Specifically I grabbed the Tokidoki Cromatico Adieu Eyeshadow Palette and also the Robbery palette (review coming soon).

Adieu is another 4 color palette that features some seriously glittery amazing colors in the purple range.

Oh and in case you need some back-story on who Adieu is as a character, she is the stylish Parisian cousin of Ciao Ciao. :)

Adieu palette


L to R, Clockwise: Carina, Ciao Ciao, Adieu, Al Dente

L to R: Carina, Ciao Ciao, Adieu, Al Dente

Carina is a soft, glittery white. Adieu is a pink/lavender with blue duochrome. Ciao Ciao is a deep royal purple with slight blue flash. Al Dente is an intense black with lavender glitter.

Just like the Mozzarella palette I reviewed last week, these shadows were (mostly) incredibly soft and had massive color payoff. The one exception was Carina. It was a bit chalky and gritty feeling and I really had to apply a lot to get the swatch to show up. This was definitely the weakling of this palette and the only one I didn’t like.

The other three are just incredible colors, and felt so nice and soft. Even Al Dente really surprised me being as black and opaque as it is. Beautiful!

As with Mozzarella you have to watch for major fallout, especially with Carina and Al Dente, which are more glittery rather than shimmery.

Overall:

Totally recommend this palette, especially if you are a fan of purple. Even though Carina was a color I wouldn’t use, the other three are totally worth it.

Let’s hear what you think about this one compared to Mozzarella!

    Awww, I had high hopes for this one, since I am a huge purple fan. Overall, I think I like the Mozzarella palette better! (Although, I do love the Adieu, and the Ciao Ciao.)

      Hi Christina,

      I liked this one almost as much as Mozzarella, but not quite :)

    I like the purples and the black, but not sure about the white. I do think the packaging is cute!

    I love the colors, but this is definitely a cool-toned pallette and everything would look gross on me :(

    Ugh, this is so sickeningly adorable! I’m a sucker for cute packaging, and Tokidoki do cute so well! Those colors also look super useable! I’d even use Carina… it might be pretty on the inner corner of your eye!

    Love it!

    Hi sweetie!
    You aren’t doing anything wrong, I’m sure it’s just one of those ‘fluke’ things.
    Like I, for instance, got distracted by other things, but I did read your post and checked out the other 2 as well!
    I really like these colors as well, although that beautiful black does scare me, you know.. with my fear of dark colors. I think I prefer the Mozzarella palette, but this is certainly amazing too. Love the pink and purple colors!

    The back of the box is adorable! Love the girl’s pink lips. After seeing your swatches I’m a bit regretful that I didn’t buy this during Sephora’s F&F! Ciao Ciao and Adieu are gorgeous. So is Al Dente. Carina looks like it has a lot of fallout.

    I have the diamanté pallet and I just love it! I felt just like a kid opening the box and taking out the little charm! I actually found it on my husbands keychain one day! The colors are little lighter than I like but I am dying to try the robbery !

    I bought the brush set because it was too freakin cute. I might have to splurge for these!

    I like this color pallete, but the first and last ones look glittery, so I couldn’t wear those. Makes my eyes itch. :/
