I think, this is one of the product that makes Too Cool For School well-known, well, aside from their uber cute packaging. You see, something like the way Banila Co is well-known for their Clean It Zero, and Laneige that got popular thanks to their Water Sleeping Mask.
Not being a huge fan of contour myself, I got persuaded to bought this Too Cool For School Art Class by Rodin thanks to the contour craze that’ve been going on because of Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette back in 2014 to 2015. However, since there’s no doubt that that palette is definitely pricey and there’s no way I could finish it on my own (well, they targeted towards make up artist to begin with, so…), I decided to find another good yet affordable contour palette.
After endless search here and there, I found out that this Too Cool For School Art Class by Rodin was popular amongst Korean beauty blogger particularly because of its natural ashy shade compared to another Korean roadshop brands that usually coming out with reddish shade for their contouring product.
So, this product come with a super cool and cute packaging, as expected from Too Cool For School. And for the product itself, it comes with three different contour shade that you can mix and matched according your skin tone or you can simply brush it all and blend it into your skin.
However, somehow I feel like the third contour colour feels too strong for me, especially when I didn’t particularly like a strong defined look for contouring. I prefer a subtle, natural contouring, so I prefer to mix the two lightest shades with my contour brush, applied it to the desired contour place, and blend it with beauty blender to make it look more natural.
I think this is definitely a beginner friendly product that want to start learning and experimenting towards face contouring. First, it comes in a powder form, so it would be definitely easier to blend, and to control. Second, it comes with three shades, so, you can definitely found your preferable contour shade with this palette, and since it has natural ashy brown shade, you would hardly go wrong with this palette, it won’t make you look muddy whatsoever. And lastly, it comes with a pretty affordable price. I believe that you can get it at around $14~$20, depends on where you bought it.
So, all in all, I think that this is a pretty nice product. Even if you’re not a beginner in contouring, I also think that this Too Cool For School Art Class by Rodin would satisfy you easily because of shade selection, formula, and price range. Repurchase? Well, I hardly hit the pan when it’s already been a year since I use it, so maybe when I someday running out of it. 😆
