Review: Too Cool For School After School BB Foundation Lunch Box

For the first 5-7x that I visited Korea, I never actually saw the appeal of Too Cool For School – and it was for the lamest reason ever. Cos there were no celeb endorsements. I know, I know, I’m such a fan girl. But after about 10 trips to Korea, I’d actually run out of products to purchase – I kid you not. I’d actually bought almost everything in most of the shops. So yes, I had to set my sights elsewhere, and like Sauron, I turned my evil gaze over to Too Cool For School.

I say…

My first impressions of this product were not great – I mean, dude, what’s up with the weird and vaguely ancient delivery system of a spatula-spade?

  • Fine, so let’s start from the packaging – yes I love the kitchsy quirky sketches and designs.
  • It’s also really convenient that everything is available in one packaging – the flip top bottle cap reveals a highlighter, concealer and a mirror, and unscrew the bottle cap to find the BB foundation.
  • Now here’s where I go into vague product angst – the attached spatula can get really messy, and I found myself having to carefully navigate it so as to avoid the rims and edges (I’m pedantic that way cos I like to keep my products looking as pristine as possible). In fact, it felt like I was back in primary school playing one of those games where you have to navigate a cursor through the maze and you’ll get electrocuted if you hit the walls.
  • It also always comes up with a chunk of product (cos the BB foundation is quite thick in consistency and doesn’t drip or flow off as easily as I’d want it to).  It looks quite a gooey mess if you ask me.
  • Bad product design aside, this is actually a really good product.
  • Although the consistency of the BB foundation is thicker than usual, it spreads easily without pulling the skin.
  • It also gives great coverage and has a matte finish (thus delaying the onslaught of my first oil blotting session).
  • In fact, I didn’t have to use much product to cover my entire face – I just dabbed some of the BB foundation from the spatula onto the back of my hand (about a 20 cent size) and that was sufficient. I guess it’s also more hygienic than dabbing from the spatula itself. Plus, there’s nowhere I can place the cap on my dressing table – just dab, and back it goes into the bottle.

Moving on to the concealer – it’s located in the black cap itself, so all you have to do is tug the red ribbon gently to open the cap.

  • There’s no brush provided, so you can use your ring finger (or a brush) to apply it.
  • It gives good coverage too, but avoid applying too many layers or it’ll cake.
  • It’s slightly thicker in consistency vs the Laneige Bright Eye Finish Concealer Kit.

Last but not least, the highlighter – similarly, it’s located in the black cap (which comes with a mirror too).

  • I love the concealer – it’s relatively creamy in the pot, but turns to powder upon application.
  • The shimmer is a nice pearly colour with a white-pinkish-toned shimmer.
  • It’s also easily applied and glides on smoothly. I dabbed a few spots down my nose bridge and then slowly blended it downwards.  It can also give subtle highlighting to your C-zone.

Overall, I’m pretty impressed and can totally see myself going back to get a second bottle once this (or my trusted Hera HD Fix Foundation)  runs out. 😀 Too Cool For School is available in Singapore at Far East Plaza, #03-53.

  8. Thanks so much for this review! I’ve been trying to decide if I should get this, and now I can hardly wait to give it a go 😉 I just have one question… what did you use to apply to get such perfect coverage? I usually use an UD airbrush finish foundation brush for my BBs but this looks so thick I’m wondering if I should order a marshmallow puff while I’m at it. I’d love to hear from you! Xo, Jen
