I got a sample of the too cool for school After School BB Foundation Lunchbox in 1 Matte in the July BDJ Box, and that’s awesome because I’ve been wanting to try it since I began exploring the brand.
This skin match is just asking for trouble! Look how white it is against my skin tone. Still, I wanted to see if I could use it. Since I wanted to see just how drastic the difference in, here I am without makeup, aside from this on one side of my face:
Surprise! It’s not so bad. 🙂 In fact, I think it blends in quite nicely with my skin and evens out my skin tone. My eyebags are hopeless, so I’m not even going to go there.
Here I am with all of it blended out + the rest of my makeup:
This was the look for my last Made-Up History post. I think this is a bit too pale for me, but it’s honestly nothing that a bit of bronzer can’t fix. I’ve got nothing much to say about coverage. It’s decent but it won’t cover up bumpy acne. I know this because it did nothing much for my head pim-pale.
It dries down but doesn’t really set, so I feel like it will rub off on porous surfaces that my face may touch. The finish is semi-matte, by which I mean that I can see a bit of sheen poking through, still. I would set this with a powder if I was on my way out on a hot day, that’s for sure.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with it, but I am not sure if I will repurchase this once my sample runs out.
