Scouted is a tag in my blog featuring beauty finds and new releases. Impressions posted below may change as I spend more time with the product.
At par with the usual quirky design associated with TCFS, the Too Cool For School Dinoplatz UFO Multibox comes in a box that resembles a UFO. I thought the hollowed secondary box was meant to contain a secret gift, a spare puff or THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE but actually...
The UFO Multibox comes in a texturized, plastic white case, which I fear will be prone to catching makeup smudges. At least it feels sturdy. The compact is seamlessly geometric, with charming scribbles characteristic of the "Dinoplatz" line on top.
The Dinoplatz UFO reminds me of the Afterschool BB Foundation Lunchbox (review by CellineReyes.com here.) Like the Lunchbox, the Dinoplatz contains multiple products in one casing, namely: (1) BB cushion on top; (2) pore balm, (3) concealer and (4) lip and cheek balm on the swivel tray below. I can do a full face with this compact, especially since I'm sporting full bangs and can forego doing my brows most days.

There are two variants of the compact based on the BB Foundation and Concealer shades. Shade 21 carries a light beige BB Foundation with a light-warm Concealer. Shade 23 on the other hand, carries a deeper and warmer BB Foundation, with a medium-warm Concealer. The Pore Balm and Lip & Cheek are the same shades for both variants.

I was able to swatch my sample the other day and these are my initial observations:
- The BB Foundation (BB cushion) is a creamy, wet mousse. It's waterier than typical BB creams but the spongey dispenser aerates the foundation making it easier to blend onto the skin. The compact comes with a BB cushion sponge, which I failed to photograph!
- The Pore Balm (primer) was a huge surprise! It's extremely silky and blurs my fine lines. It's balmy to the touch but spreads powder-dry and evens out my skin excellently.
- The Concealer has okay coverage, but its true test will be when I apply it to my undereyes. The shade that comes with the 21 compact looks like a nice light-warm shade which I would use on red spots.
- The Lip and Cheek Balm is a very wearable coral- midway between orange and pink.

I was pretty impressed to have my swatches intact even after a shower! We definitely want our makeup to be durable; I just didn't expect this unassuming multibox to perform at that level. I'm going to put this in rotation until month's end. If any of my impressions are way off base I might follow up with a full review.
