Eye Candy: Tokidoki for Smashbox

Tokidoki for Smashbox Soft Lights & Brush in Dolce Vita

Smashbox cosmetics has a long history of working with artists. In fact, the entire collection is designed for the needs of the makeup artists and photographers who work on the sets of legendary Smashbox Photo Studios. This season, Smashbox is partnering with a different type of artist - the renowned illustrative artist Simone Legno, creator of Tokidoki - for a magical, Japanimation-inspired collection that is both colorful to wear and fun to tote.

I may be a bit behind the times in that I've never heard of Tokidoki, but this collection is just adorable. I'm loving the "heart and crossbones" logo embossed on this pretty golden pink pressed powder, and just look at that little brush!

Soft Lights in Dolce Vita makes a great blush on lighter complexions and a pretty highlight powder for darker skintones (if I recall correctly, Dolce Vita is actually more pink and less violet than it appears in this photo).

The entire collection is certainly worth a look - the packaging alone makes these pieces perfect collector's items. (Do I even need to mention that they're limited edition?)
