TCFS After School BB Foundation Lunch Box comes in this rather bulky, compartmentalized packaging. On the top section, it has the concealer, highlighter and of course, a mirror on the lid. Below is the BB foundation. I like idea of having almost everything I need in one hefty product but I’m really not fond of the packaging as a whole. Again, it is bulky so I can’t bring it with me all the time. It’s heavy too but what I dislike most about the packaging is the spatula that comes with the BB foundation.
Ideally, it is used to scrape the inside of the bottle but given the girth size of the bottle and the size of the spatula, I doubt if it could reach the sides of the bottles. Personally, I prefer squeeze-tube packaging for BB creams. But then again, thumbs up for the cool idea of putting the 3 products in one packaging. 🙂
The concealer has got to be my favorite part in this trio. It is very creamy and it glides smoothly without tugging. It’s medium beige shade with neutral – slightly leaning more to pink – undertone and offers decent coverage. It doesn’t sink in to lines and nooks which is great because I have the worst lines under my eyes like you won’t imagine. Just set it properly and I swear it would stay on. 😉
As for the highlighter, it isn’t as creamy as the former but still very easy to apply. It has the iridescent glow that reminds me of crushed pearls of some sort. I like how it isn’t gritty nor filled with huge chunks of glitters that would make me look like a walking disco ball. It has the tendency to cake so remember to apply it moderately. 🙂
TIP: Using a teeny tiny amount of highlighter, lightly dab it on the apples of your cheeks and a straight line on the center of your nose to highlight it. Slightly blend it using your clean fingers to make it look natural. Again, don’t apply to much!
I wore this everyday last week and I noticed that it was able to stay on without disappearing for a good 4 hours. After that benchmark, everything starts fading. The highlighter has the shortest wear time among the three but still enough for quick errands and even to school. I’d like to think that this is made for those with normal to dry skintone because in terms of oil control, it isn’t very impressive. I have combination oily skin but this still works for me – I just have to blot and retouch every once in a while.
Overall, I’d give this TCFS After School BB Foundation Lunch Box a thumbs up. It’s reasonably priced for 3 products in one packaging, it has decent coverage, staying power and it didn’t cause any breakouts. 🙂
