We wouldn’t dare re-iterate just how innovative their formulas are, how adorable their packaging is, and how affordable their price points are. Because you already know all of that! You’re not like a regular consumer; you’re a cool consumer.

And that’s excellent, because that means you already know everything about Too Cool For School’s collections, like Dinoplatz, a collaboration with architect and painter Hatori Sando that features hand-drawn illustrations of dinosaurs roaming around New York City, or Glam Rock, a glimmer-infused line that pays homage to the iconic rocker looks of the ’70s and ’80s. They’re great! They’re beautiful! They’re totally on your radar.

But just in case—hey, hear us out—just in case you wanted a tiny refresher on the wackiest products from Too Cool For School that we absolutely love with our deepest of burning passions, we rounded them up for you, below.

  • Dinoplatz Twisty Tail Mascara

    For all those times you’ve ever tried to coat the tiny lashes in the corners of your eyes, only to leave a streak of mascara across your lid in the process, this applicator is for you. The thick brush on this black mascara bends from a vertical line to a bean-shaped right angle with the twist of the cap, letting you create the exact brush shape you need to fit your eye shape.

  • Sitkoza Cleansing Gel

    You’ve got your cleansing oils, your melting balms, and now, a cleansing gel. If you speak Korean, this product is pretty self-explanatory. If not, here’s the gist: Sitkoza is the Korean word meaning “cleanse and sleep.” This low-suds gel is formulated with rose water and cherry blossom extract, making it the perfect nighttime makeup remover for oily complexions. Just massage a dime-size drop of gel into your skin, then rinse your face and watch all of your makeup—even the waterproof kind—slide down the drain.

  • Dinoplatz Cushy Blusher

    Oh, you know, just your classic cushy blusher. (Sorry, we just really like the name.) Aside from the insanely adorable packaging—zomg dinosaurs—this squeeze-blush has a soft puff applicator that allows you to quite literally stamp the cream blush across your cheeks before blending it in.

  • Glam Rock Extreme Color Eyes Eyeliner

    Some liquid liner applicators feel like stiff toothpicks against your eyelids (so really, how could anyone blame you for uneven, wonky lines?), but this liner has a click-brush tip that’s soft and pliable, giving you an even, crisp line, every single time. Plus, sparkles. Tons of itty bitty, light-catching sparkles in each swipe.

  • Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Blotting Paper

    Little known fact: The first blotting paper was actually invented by the brachiosaurus. Weird, huh? Hey, we don’t make up the facts. What’s cool about this set of 50 sheets, though, is that they’re made from natural Hanji, a traditional Korean paper handmade from Mulberry trees, which means you can soak up your shine in the most natural way possible.

  • Max in Pocket Lip Balm

    This little lip balm is pretty much as old-school as the adult you can get. Housed inside the mirrored compact (with a keychain attachment, because of course), is a high-shine tinted lip balm infused with a bunch of shea butter, and just a touch of coral color.

  • Egg Mousse Body Oil

    What exactly is this, you ask? Just your average egg mousse body oil, of course! It sounds weird, but it’s kind of brilliant. The formula uses egg yolks and egg whites to moisturize skin while also removing dead skin cells, and though it comes out in a big puff, the mousse quickly transforms into a silky oil that melts into your skin without the slightest sticky feeling.
