Too Cool For School Haul & Shop Tour

[pic heavy post]

Are you too cool to have heard about Too Cool For School? I've saw this shop in Hong Kong but I didn't have the time to check it out. Well, few months ago, Korean beauty brand Too Cool For School (I will just refer it as TCFS from now) set their foot in Bangsar!!!! The beauty brand is packaged in a way to attract young girls in college (and also girls that are young at heart like me).

I was there with Alie last week to check out their cool shop. The TCFS team is so nice to let us take photos around the shop, so I'm going to show you guys what are the products that caught my attention...

Hmmmm.... I don't know where to start. So let's talk about products that I think worth buying..

This is their solid perfume. Their lip balm has similar packaging as well. I think you guys probably know why I say this is worth to buy. The packaging is sooooooooo cute!!!! I love the cat one!!!

Milk Tint (RM35.60) - With texture soft and smooth as milk and color as bright clean, this tint makes clear lips. This is something like Benetint and Cha Cha Tint. Although the description suggest to wear it on the lips, you can use this as liquid blusher as well. The pigment is quite sheer but long lasting.

The Dinoplatz Escalator Mascara (RM104.50) - Able to adjust the brush length as you prefer. Smart curling + full voluming. This is the first time I see a mascara that is adjustable. All you need to do is to twist the cover and the mascara wand will expand, becoming longer and slimmer. And the packging is to die for! It comes with a pop-up dino card! I want the packaging more than I want the mascara.

Next is the Egg Mousse Pack cleanser. It is a foam-like cleanser. This is the best-selling item in their entire store. Users claim that they experience smaller pores when they use this cleanser.

The O2 Bubble Cleansing Pack is also another deep cleanser. But this is way cooler. When you retrieve it from the bottle it looks like normal gel cleanser. You need to leave the cleanser on your face for a few seconds then it will turn into bubbles!!! It's like magic! This cleanser is good for removing face makeup. If you always apply thick foundation, do give it a try.

Can you guess what this tablet is for? It is a facial mask!!! Just mix the tablet with a little bit of water at the ratio of 1:2. Stir to thicken it then spread on your clean face like how you apply your normal mask.

The Blending Cream BB is their best-selling item in the makeup range. I saw a lot of Youtube guru raving about this. Thankfully, they sell small deluxe size BB cream for you to try first before buying the full size. I think all brands should do the same. I don't know how many times I've bought the wrong foundation and BB cream because of this.

If you're a makeup virgin, you should try their Virgin Gloss Stick (RM80.20) - Shiny lipstick subdues flaky dead cells and applied on lips light and glossy. This is a combination of lipstick and lipgloss. It has the creamy lipstick texture and the sheer coverage of lipgloss. It is perfect for people who don't like heavy makeups.

The Multifunctional Puff hold a middle of Too Cool Marshmallow fitted in one hand, apply concealer using the sharp part. Apply foundation and blusher using the round part. Smart multi product for face makeup. This is an alternative to the expensive Beauty Blender.

Those are the products that worth buying, in my opinion. Now let's tour the shop. Their products are displayed in a document box. Reminds me of school bags in the 50's.

And the display is creeeeeeeeeepppyyy!!!! Broken dolls everywhere!!!!!

I want those upside-down face but they're just for display and not for sale :( Let's check out other products...

The Dinoplatz Pop up Mascara (RM106.90) - Screw-type brush lengthens eye-lashes powerfully in short time.

The bath products packaging is sooooo cute! I love the round pump bottle shower gel!

Face mask that comes in cute disposable jar.

The Angel Hand Cream.

The Angel Foot series for foot care products.

The Dinoplatz Guggenosaurus Concealer (RM93.90) - Anti-wrinkle, whitening, UV-blocking concealer.

Check Cake Blusher (RM89.20) - Highlighter + Cheek + Shading, the all-round multi functional 4 colour shimmer.

Makeup eraser. You totally need this if you're a clumsy person like me.

Buying their cotton pads is like buying a piece of art.

Play Cheek powder blusher.

Remover Stick for emergencies. It comes in a cotton-bud shape and the stick contains makeup remover. Keep this in your handbag for travel and important events when you need to have flawless makeup.

The Applezone Butterfly Mask. Weird but cute...

If you buy above RM100 before 7th July (Ooopppsie.. tomorrow last day), you will be able to get a lucky dip for their April Fool promotion. You might win full size products from the store. Let's try my luck....

OK... I got fooled :( I was hoping I win the solid perfume or the lip balm. I want the cat one!!!!

TCFS is located at Bangsar, Jalan Telawi 3. Same row as Alexis. It's so hard to get a nice photo of the shop front.

If you're a student in College or University, you can enrol yourself as TCFS ambassador. You could win a fully paid trip to Korea. I can't remember the terms & conditions to be an ambassador of TCFS, you can pay a visit to their store or check out their Facebook page for more info.

I tried to join the student ambassador program and tried to convince thme that I was once a student too. But I failed badly. Do enjoy this privilege while you're still a student.

And finally.......... here's my haul:

1. Mini Blending Cream BB
2. Mask mini pack set for my mask stuff
3. 1 Dat Tatoo Eye Brow (this one is awesome!!!)
4. Turquoise + pink loofah (I can't resist the cute color!!!)

And they're so generous with the samples...

By the way, do you want me to review any item from my stash? I might do the 1 day tatoo eye brow review because it is so awesome!!! I'm loving it a lot. Drawing eyebrow is so easy with it.
