I was so thrilled to receive these three bestselling lip products from Too Cool for School to try out. Among the sea of girly, frilly, and soft-looking Korean brands, Too Cool for School definitely stands out because of their strong branding, identity, and packaging. The good thing is: their products are great, too!
I received three of their bestselling lip products:
- Glam Rock Smoky Nudy Lips* (Php 715) — a soft nude lip best used to counter the intensity of a smoky eye.
- Kiss Time Ice Beam Glass* (Php 435) — a plumping lip gloss with a high-gloss, jelly system that provides moisture and vivid lipstick-like color.
- Max in Pocket Lip Balm* (Php 605) — it’s a pocket-sized lip balm with a chain, which makes it so great for travel. I was super excited for this as Krysty raved about it a few months ago.
OK, let’s go by chronological order because I have no imagination.
The Glam Rock Smoky Nudy Lip Color* is a great nude lipstick, housed in an edgy (as far as makeup goes) black bullet with lots of graphic detail. Although it is a great lipstick, I’m not sure it’s the kind of nude that I like on myself, personally.
It’s not bad, just not a nude I would pick out for myself. 🙂 I tend to go one or two shades darker than my skin tone, which I realize defeats the purpose of a “nude” lip, but I just don’t like that look on me.
The Kiss Time Ice Beam Glass* is such a great little gloss, and this is coming from a gloss-hater. It’s a pale pink gloss with what looks to be like fine pink and silver shimmer.
The finish has a milky look to it that you can definitely sheer out to a less white-based shade. It’s a beautiful topper gloss, just to add that bit of oomph to a lip color. Also, I’m not too crazy about artificial candy scents, but I like the scent of this one quite a bit.
Finally, I have the Max in Pocket Lip Balm* in the shade 3, which is a pretty peachy coral shade. I think Krysty has a redder shade, but this is perfect to me!
It’s brightening for my skin tone and add just a touch of a pretty shine to my lips, while hydrating them. Guess what? It comes with a mirror, too!
I just realized that these are probably my first TCFS lip products. I’m so surprised, though I usually gravitate towards eye products first (which totally happened). In any case, all three are wins for me.
Have you tried Too Cool for School products? Which are your favorites (so I can get them, lol)?
