Too Cool For School is famous for the school themed brand concept, and this product is not an exception. You can see from the name itself "lunch box" and the design matches its name. It's a 3 in 1 product with BB cream/foundation, cream concealer, and cream highlighter - a one stop for all product. 

The top part opens up to the half-concealer and half-highlighter and it has a small mirror placed on the lid. The base part is filled with BB Cream/Foundation.

The product itself came in 3 shades, with first being the lightest and 3 and being the darkest. Mine is #2 which is the middle shade and it's a shade lighter than my skin tone. 

The BB Cream Foundation has a SPF of 37 PA++ and a slight grayish tone to it. It does brighten my face up, just like old-fashioned BB Creams but it does look unnatural especially under direct sunlight. The BB Foundation is not at all watery, it's more like mousse textured but it's still easily blendable and lightweight. The finish is very, very dewy - a very typical old fashioned BB Cream formulation. 

Since you have to scoop out the product out, please refrain to directly apply the BB Foundation with the applicator if you have troubled skin or you're using it with someone else. Or even if you're using the applicator, make sure you wipe it cleanly first then put it back again.

The cream concealer is rather thick and salmon colored, perfect for covering dark under eye area. This is something that I notice from cream concealer is that if I didn't set it properly it will 100% create smudge panda especially because I like to draw my eyeliner thickly. It's probably me though - anyway you have to set the concealer thoroughly to avoid 'panda eyes' incident.

(since the BB is so dewy already, almost the highlighter is almost unnoticeable when blended)

The cream highlighter have micro glitters and shimmers but it didn't look too much on the face. I'm not someone that use a lot of cream highlighter because of my oily face, unless I do need a little more glam - but I usually prefer powder highlighter more. Cream highlighter is definitely much more natural looking and blend more effortlessly. But since it's included in the 3 in 1 product, I got the chance to try a cream highlighter and you too to if you do purchase this.

As for the coverage, it's light to medium and it's buildable - though the more you build it, the lighter it gets so I usually stop at 1 layer. Oil control is not its best quality, nose starts to look shiny after only 1 hour of application, and at 4-5 hours elapsed the side of nose started to look red again. But other than that I feel this BB Foundation is super light weight. Kinda disagree with the name "BB Foundation" because it's definitely a BB Cream. 

The BB Foundation reminds me of Holika-holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB, but its texture is so mousse-y, and this BB Foundation is definitely not as mousse-y.

Overall, none of the formulation impresses me, it's all average, from the BB Foundation to the concealer and the highlighter. Of course the design and the actual 3 in 1 product is definitely a great appeal for some, the product itself didn't really impress me as much! 

Though I think it still great for those who just started digging in to makeup! Look at that adorable, all in one product, I think it'll be a great gift for teenagers that just started to build up their makeup kit :)
