tokidoki Spring 2012 Airways Palette Swatch and Review

Tokidoki’s Spring 2012 Airways Palette has arrived! I am overjoyed by it. The palette features 8 eyeshadows in a tin box. The tin box can also be seen as a fancy designed suitcase. In the middle of the palette stands Donutella and underneath the palette is something you will see later! Maybe it leads to someplace…

With this palette madness you can snag one off the shelves at $42.00 at Sephora. But keep in mind this is not only a palette., there are so many good things about it.

When you first get your hands on this hot palette, you might think, “WHAT IN THE WORLD!” Yes!!!! It is pretty much a globally cute designed metal suitcase. The traveler is Donutella. Each eyeshadow is 2.1 g x 8. Donutella doesn’t have a weight though… so couldn’t tell you!

Just right off the bat looking at this suitcase, I see places like Los Angeles, Hawaii, Paris, Egypt, and more. When you open it, sitting right in the middle snugly is Donutella with her travel bags. Surrounding her are the eyeshadows.

Opposite of the shadows is a collage of famous places from around the world such as the Colosseum, the sphinx, and the Eiffel Tower.

After taking out the shadow palette, underneath it is a hidden map of treasures… YEAH RIGHT!

Finally, let’s switch our focus to the main heroine of the palette / suitcase. She is a keychain charm that you can carry around with you wherever you go. If you’re hungry you can always ask her for donuts since she probably has a whole case full of them somewhere in her luggage. Donutella is intricately designed in a donuts suit. Whether it is chocolate cream or strawberry cream or even frosted cream with sprinkles all over, Donutella is ready for an adventure.

Here is a little description of the eyeshadows below:

Paris (sparkling soft pink)
Los Angeles (sparkling lavender)
Tokyo (iridescent purple)
Hong Kong (pearlized lime green)
New York (pearlized olive green)
Hawaii (matte vanilla)
London (pearlized toffee)
Rome (matte chocolate brown)

Here are the swatches of the shadows. Let me tell you what they are in order first before all else. Going left to right from the first photo to the second are Paris, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Hong Kong, New York, Rome, London, and Hawaii. Each shadow has been dramatically revamped to give a much pigmented, iridescent look with shimmers sparkling bright. The exceptions are Rome and Hawaii which are shown in matte. The colors can be combined by imagination to bring multiple looks for Spring.

Aside from Donutella (Yes, I cannot get off the keychain / toy) and the suitcase, the colors are all highly wearable. With these 8 versatile shades, put on your creativity hats and you can get so many looks out of them. If you do a simple math calculation which excludes all else but the shadows, each of them come out to be exactly $5.25 each. Even if the shadows are depleted, the keepsake tin suitcase can be used while we sport a unique keychain.

    I want to take a bite out of Donutella since she reminds me of Krispy Kreme donuts. :/

      Hi Tiffyama!!! I thought of it as a lunch box on sight since it reminded me of those tin ones back in grade school. LOL! But I wouldn’t use it for the life of me since it’s too fancy… :X
