I am so glad I trekked to Metro Paragon to get this palette. I only own one other palette which is Oasis that came out in summer 2009 I think.
Tokapi comes in the signature classy black casing with a little difference, a black plastic inset to protect the eye shadows. Quick question, do you keep the insets that you find in many palettes or do you throw them away? I lose mine often.

Being the impatient person that I am, I had to try them as soon as I can. My god! The shades are buttery soft and oh so pigmented except for the gold colour. The gold shade is sheer and shimmery. Not meant for an all over lid colour but more of a highlight colour on top of the other colours or at the inner corner of the eyes.The rest of the colours have a rich metal look. Best of all, the taupe is so beautiful! I love this palette.

The sun was not cooperating. It kept coming and going. By the time I got some bright sunlight, my arm swatch had smudged.
This palette costs SGD $95. Ouch! I know but seriously it is well made and the colours compliment each other. You can do a light day look and transform it into a smouldering night look. It is more of a warm toned palette in my opinion but I bet it will suit almost everyone. Get it before it disappears.
