Too Cool For School Artclass Rodin Review

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique.

This is the second month that I have taken part, a couple of the previous items that I reviewed in July were Too Cool For School Hot Girl Lash and May Coop Raw Sauce.

Today I am talking about the fabulous Artclass By Rodin* contouring powder compact from Too Cool For School. This is the second product that I’ve tried from this brand and it’s fast becoming one of my favourite Korean beauty brands.

Rodin was a French sculptor who lived between 1840 and 1917. I’m not too sure what he’d have thought about having his name put to a make-up product, but I can see why they’ve done it, making the link between sculpting and contouring!

The circular compact has three shades of pressed powder that can be used to sculpt the face, I like to use the paler two colours for my pale skintone to contour my cheekbones – the palest shade goes over the top of the cheekbones to highlight and draw attention and the darker shade goes under the cheekbones to add shadow and definition. You could also sweep a big soft brush over all three shades at once and then use the mixture of powders as a subtle bronzing powder.

The three powder shades are all quite subtle as you can see from the swatch image above. Each one is fairly matt with no shimmer which is what you want from a good contouring powder and they’re not chalky at all. You will need to carefully blend the edges of the darker shades though so it doesn’t look like your face is covered in stripes!

Too Cool For School Artclass Rodin Box

This Artclass by Rodin contouring compact really is a thing of beauty, even the box has been beautifully designed with an antique French feel and includes a history of the sculptor Rodin inside. This is definitely one of my favourite make-up items of 2015 so far!

Too Cool For School Artclass by Rodin is priced at around £12 with FREE postage from South Korea on eBay.

  1. I’m always put off by sculpting products as they are always far too dark for my skin tone but these shades look like they’d be perfect to work with. I also absolutely love that packaging, it’s so simplistic and French!

  2. Really like the look of this sculpting powder, so much more compact and the shades look perfect too! Soo good that they don’t have glitter in though, one of my pet hates xx

  3. I like this but now that I’ve had for awhile, I feel like it’s really light and it takes me twice as long to contour my face with it. But it is a great contour kit since it is foolproof. It’s great for beginners and I’m loving it for my nose contour.
