Review: Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Lost Identity #2 Lost in Hawaii

This product was sent to me by Cosmetic-love for review purposes. The opinions expressed are 100% my own, and are not affected in any way by the sponsorship.

Hello Lovelies~

Today I have a lip crayon for review! It's from Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Lost Identity (interesting name isn't it, I like it! :D) , and I have it in the colour #2 Lost in Hawaii! Thanks to Cosmetic-love for sending me this to try. ^^ I've never tried a product from Too Cool For School, but from what I have seen, their concept and designs are very unique and, I absolutely love it!

This is also my first lip crayon. xD I don't use coloured lip products often, so this will be a new experience for me as well! I was keen on trying new lip products, and this packaging really drew me in, it's a scroll! *_* I just love interesting and unique things like this. haha

Anyway, keep reading for the full review and photos and swatches~ ^^
Love the hand-drawn look on this packaging design. <3

On the back side, not much English but covers the basics.

And here's the lip crayon, wrapped up in the scroll! :D

Look at the design on the inside! Pretty interesting. :D

And finally here's the lip crayon! It even has the nice design on it as well. :)
The bottom black part is twistable.

The tip, and the amount of product. Since I don't use lip products that much, this is going to last me a long time. ^^

Swatches! This photo is taken outside on a sunny day. The colour looks quite vibrant.

And before and after on my lips.

I love how this glides on so smoothly, even when my lips are kind of dry, it does not pull on the lips at all. It's very creamy too. At first it does feel moisturizing, because of its creaminess, but I don't feel it keeps my lips moisturized, so it would be best to wear lip under it. The formula is not too sticky, and it doesn't feel too heavy, just average I would say. 

In the tube it looks like a bright orange, and even when swatched it looks very pigmented. On the lips however, it looks much more sheer more like a peachy colour, and I think it's a good thing! It looks natural, but brightens up my whole face. :D The colour makes my lips looks less dull, and adds a subtle pop of colour. It's sheer enough for everyday wear, and I really love it! It's my first orange lip product, and I really love how the colour makes me feel energized. 8D

I wore this for about 5 hours with some eating before it faded completely. Like I've mentioned before, this lip crayon is not particularly moisturizing even though it's creamy, especially after a few hours, my lips will feel dry. And if I didn't exfoliate, then there will be some dead skin mixed with the lip colour. -.- After a few hours, I find the colour sinks in to lip lines, and becomes uneven.

In the tube, it smells like coconuts and pineapple? I'm not sure if it's the name 'Lost in Hawaii' making me think this way, but it smells tropical! xD And it's a very soft scent too, I like it! Taste wise, I do not detect any taste at all. :P

I really like this! It's super creamy and goes on lips very smoothly. The colour is sheer, and great for everyday wear, and really brightens the lips! The wear is fine, but it's not particularity moisturizing and do sink into lines after a while. But overall I'm satisfied with it, and it's worth a try! :D

I can't believe August is already half way through. :(

  1. interesting review :D i am addicted to lip crayon ^^

  2. Well, I expected much more pigmentation and moisturizing effect but oops :3 lol great review anyway! :3

  3. oh! i love that color on your lips! but i hate things that go into lip lines O__O especially since ihave chappy lips lol

  4. Wow, very natural looking. Beautiful color on you!

  5. I love how it looks on you but I kinda wish it came out a little more of vibrant orange and true to color. But this looks really naturally on you, it's gorgeous!:)

  6. I absolutely love the design! :D I myself don't wear orange lips much, but I really like this one! :)

  7. too cool for school design is not really into my liking >.<
    it looks so natural on your lips, unlike the color on the packaging :O

  8. I like lippies that gives off a little tint like this one. The color looks so natural on you!! But this won't probably work on me since it's kinda drying, right?

  9. The colour looks so pretty on you Chee ^_^

    Oh the color and the package are absolutely pretty. Really pretty produt so bad doen´t moisturize the lips.
    Many thanks for your review!

  11. It's subtle, but pretty. Too Cool for School is a bit expensive. Otherwise I'd be all over it.

  12. Wow, the color is so sheer. Definitely not for me! haha

  13. Gorgeous color on your arm! It's amazing it doesn't show up on the lips. Very interesting. Great review. I haven't tried their products yet.

  14. Thanks Joyce! What brand of lip crayon do you like? :D

  15. Haha, ya it's too bad it's not that moisturizing, but I don't mind the sheerness that much. :P
    Thanks Nhi!

  16. Ya me too! >.< And when it mixed the dead skin. ughh that's the worst. -.-
    I always need to exfoliate my lips before putting on any lip product!
    Thanks for reading Aria!

  17. Ya it is ^^
    Thanks for reading Winda!

  18. Thanks Vivi! I love how this gives a nice natural pop of colour! :D

  19. omg the hand drawn design is so pretty! Love your reviews!

  20. I love peripera lip crayon! I think etude house is nice too :D

  21. Oh I really want to try the Peripera ones! :D

  22. I thought it would look more vibrant too, but I like the sheer colour too. :)
    Thanks! :D

  23. This is my first orange lippie, and I really like it, it looks natural and brightens the face! ^^
    Thanks for reading!

  24. Hehe their design is quite unique. ^^
    Ya I was really surprised by it too, maybe because my lips are quite pigmented so it doesn't show as much, but I like it. :)
    Thanks for reading Rini!

  25. I really like sheer lippies like this, so I don't mind that the colour is not as vibrant. Maybe I exaggerated a bit, it's not super drying, but not moisturizing even though it feels creamy, it that means sense. :P
    Thanks for reading Elle!

  26. Ya I was really drawn to the packaging! The colour is nice too, yes too bad about the moisturization, but a bit of lip balm underneath is good enough! :D

  27. I agree $18 for one lip product is a bit much, haven't tried their other products yet. Thanks for reading Bethany!

  28. haha I really like the sheerness though! To each her own. :D
    Thanks for reading Anya!

  29. Ya I was really surprised by it too! I think it's because my lips are quite pigmented, so it doesn't show as much, but I really like this colour though! Thanks for reading Kim!

  30. Thank you so much Jesline! I really appreciate it *_*
    I love hand drawn and whimsical so much! :D

  31. The name is so interesting, and the packaging is really unique xD. The design on the crayon packaging is cute too, I really like city scape designs. Overall, it looks nice; but $18 is pretty steep for it @__@;.

  32. Even though is not very pigmented, it does give a cute tone to the lips, but the price is a little big too high, right?

    XOXO Girls that glitter love the dark
    Estoy de sorteo aquí!

  33. Yes city scape! That's the word I was looking for while writing this post! x)
    I do love the design on it too, but I agree $18 is a bit much, almost like a high end product! :o
    Thanks for reading Jo!

  34. I like the sheer colour, and not too bright, and yes I think the price is a bit high for a lip crayon too! xO Thanks for reaing Natalia! :D
