Review: Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Crayon in Lost in Hawaii

12. March 2014
Another lip crayon I’ve tested in the last time. Actually, I wanted to review it looong time ago, but then I decided to review some skincare products first, because back then I was only reviewing lip products XD. This review will be about Too Cool For School’s Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Crayon No. 2 called “Lost in Hawaii”. 

As you can see, it has a very special product design. I absolutely love the creativity of the packaging. The crayon is packed inside a paper roll with super nice illustrations all over. And it continues inside the paper roll as well. ♥

The TCFS Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Crayons are available in three shades. A pink shade called “Lost in You”, an orange shade called “Lost in Hawaii” (This is what I bought) and a mint colored one called “Lost in Dinoplatz”, which is a color changing lip crayon. You can look up the ingredients and the promotional pictures on TCFS’s web page >>here<<.

The lip crayon has a transparent plastic cap and works by twist-up mechanism. This is the most convenient way for lip crayons in my opinion, because you don’t need an extra sharpener. The design of the crayon shows the same illustrations as the paper packaging.
When swatched on the hand, you’ll see, that the color of the crayon is not as pigmented as the crayon itself looks like. It gives a nice orange glow and has a smooth feeling, comparable to a lip balm. If you are looking for a highly pigmented crayon these crayons won’t satisfy your needs, but if you are looking for a natural hint of color these might suit you. Since my lips are quite “dark” the color doesn’t show on my lips like in the promotional pictures. It just gives a hint of orange, which is nice nevertheless. I couldn’t capture the color on my lips unfortunately, so I will only show you a swatch on my hand:
It really glides smoothly on the skin and you can see the shine it provides. This is a very pleasant light crayon in my eyes. It has a very light fruity-citrus scent, but I could only smell it, if holding the crayon directly under my nose. The pros for this crayon are definitively the design, packaging and the natural look it creates. I love to use it when I’m in a hurry and I just want a tiny bit of orange color on my lips :D But unfortunately it also comes with one downside: Since the color is brighter than most of our lips naturally are, it will show off any dry patches or flakes on your lips, so you have to exfoliate your lips regularly, or live with that fact.
You can buy this crayon at for around US$ 11 (shipping depends on weight).
Btw: Thank you all for participating in my First Bloganniversary Giveaway! Congratulations to June again!

    The packaging is really special for this lip crayon. I haven’t seen anything quite like it!

      I agree, Too Cool For School always shows really nice and unique packaging design. You should try some of their products if you have a chnace. Thanks for commenting ♥

    It doesn’t look like it would show up well on pigmented lips, which always seems to be the case for my favorite shades of orange. =( It actually looks very similar to the Holika Holika & Peripera crayons I have just like this. Thanks for reviewing! Your box is on its way btw.

    • Fräulein Schnee 25. March 2014 at 15:56

      Thanks for sending out the box. I’m so looking forward to receive it :D ♥ I agree about orange/nude lips and pigmented lips…it doesn’t work out somehow….:( on the other hand, we should be happy that we have pigmented lips :D Thanks for commenting!♥

    It looks kind of like the one from the Secret Key kit I reviewed. I really want to try something from Too Cool for School, because I’m won over by the packaging. xD

    • Fräulein Schnee 25. March 2014 at 15:57

      You should try something from that brand if you can get your hands on it. Their packaging is so creative…As a child I loved dinosaurs, that’s why I was attracted to the Dinoplaza Line in first place XD Thanks for commenting! ♥

  • Mizu chan 13. March 2014 at 10:37

    The swatches didn’t really looks like it will be dry on lips but I really wanted to try TooCoolForSchool someday! Their packaging is unique enough~ :)

    • Fräulein Schnee 25. March 2014 at 15:58

      It is not actually dry on the lips, but it highlights dry flakes, because the color seems to attach more at those…I really love the packaging and with exfoliated lips it is a great balmlike lip crayon! Thanks for commenting ♥

    I love the packaging on this lip crayon! Thanks for your review!

      The package design is so unique, I was drawn to it directly. Thanks for commenting!♥

  • Rebecca B. Bird 13. March 2014 at 17:27

    I like it.. I think it would be subtle on me but sometimes you want that! :) Love that the design is also on the crayon itself.

    • Fräulein Schnee 25. March 2014 at 16:00

      Yes, it is not too pigmented on my lips, but I love to use it. The design is what caught my attention in first place, I really love it! ♥ Thanks for commenting!

    […] The first thing jumping into my eyes when opening the box was the product from Too Cool For School. I was uber-happy when I say the mint colored packaging because I knew directly what it was. That’s the first time I receive a MeMeBox featuring a product from Too Cool For School. A double-plus because it is a product from their Dinoplatz line, with the most adorable packaging ever!!! I reviewed another product from TCFS Dinoplatz before :) […]
