I love fall. The obvious pumpkin lattes, chilly nights and the sight of nature bursting its seams with shades of red and gold notwithstanding, fall also brings us first-of-the-season makeup kits and palettes in time for the holidays. As my fellow wht reviewers have proclaimed, it’s an intoxicating time of year!

I’m happy to report the nice people at Too Faced provided me with the Love Sweet Love Set Too Faced Love Sweet Love Set   Review, Photos & Swatches ($46), my first seasonal excitement this year, wrapped in a case of Tiffany blue – a color all women will adore. The soft, velvet-ish case features gold embroidered script and a nice three-sided zipper closure; best of all this bag is roomy enough to fit all of the beauty staples needed for a holiday vacation.

An added bonus is that unlike many cosmetic sets, this Too Faced set is self-contained if you want (or need) it to be. You can carry this case with all the enclosed products, mix and match from your stash at will, or even use the cute bag for non-beauty related purposes. Of course it’s not just the case to get all breathless over, the products inside are pretty special, too.

Let’s take a look at what’s included:

Let’s start with the basics; the Primed and Poreless tinted primer is not only a great primer, but can serve double duty as a foundation, particularly for a more natural daytime look. The tint evens out skin tone almost as well as the primer smooths the skin out. Score. Meanwhile, the Shadow Insurance Eye Primer is a wht fave and will keep those silky, creamy, finely milled shadows (I’ll get to those in a minute) on your lids all day long.

These two products are the first things you’ll use before whipping out The Book of Love. This darling and well, book-like, palette is the centerpiece of the set and like all Too Faced products features divine and clever packaging. Opening the first page reveals a nicely sized mirror and…

Packaging aside, I know what you really want to see is the make-up, and this palette doesn’t disappoint. Inside you’ll find, six eye shadows, two blushes, and two lip glosses, all in Neapolitan shades of sweetness.

The shadows are a neutral dream. With the exception of one highlighting shade (mentioned below) all of these shadows have great pigment, and all apply with creamy smoothness. Included are:

Vanilla Sugar – cream with a slight shimmer
Mocha Ice – shimmery light brown
Ganache - chocolate with a slight shimmer
Strawberry Cream – barely-there shimmery pink (this one isn’t too pigmented, but is great as a highlighter on the eyes or face)
Burnt Sugar – shimmery grey taupe
Licorice Glitz – dark grey with silver shimmer

For the rest of your face, you’ll find two blushes that are both fairly light in pigmentation but offer a just-right natural glow. Pink Caramel can double as bronzer or blush; pink enough for blush, but enough brown for all-over glow. Lollipop, the other blush, is a perfect punchy pink; also subtle and sweet.

The two lip glosses in The Book of Love are Raspberry Truffle – a brown tinged berry, and Bubble Gum – a medium-toned girly pink. Both of these glosses have lots of shimmer and are thick without being sticky. I found that both of these pretty shades have decent wear time for a gloss (a couple hours).

The Teddy Bear Hair Brush is exclusive to this set and is aptly-named. This super-soft, full-sized face brush is fantastic for applying those blushes – or your own face powder.

Meanwhile, the Perfect Eyes Eyeliner in Perfect Black is a smudge-proof liner that glides effortlessly across the lid – purrfect for creating the very romantic and alluring cat eye. (Click here to see the full wht review of the Perfect Eyes Eyeliner)

To top it off, you get a full size LashGASM mascara (in black, of course) to make those sooty, demure lashes work for you. I especially love that LashGASM eschews the popular, gimmicky wands and gives us a straightforward plastic bristle wand with teeth that grab, separate and define lashes as every good mascara should.

Finally, Too Faced wraps the Love Sweet Love Set Too Faced Love Sweet Love Set   Review, Photos & Swatches all up with a nice little bow in the form of instructions found within the pages of the Book of Love, with details on creating both a day and night time look.

So, put all these lovely products together and you’ve got yourself everything you need for a glam face on the go. And when it’s wrapped in a lovely tote of Tiffany blue, you won’t even miss the diamonds.

    It’s a little early to call it because I cannot wait for tomorrow and Friday’s Too Faced posts…but I think this might be the kit for me. I’m a mascara snob, but LashGASM looks great; and all those great wearable colors!! But the best part is that they give you full size products of the ones you really need full size in – my makeup shades come and go, but give me a good primer or base product and I’ll love you forever! Thanks for the review, @sherrishera! This one is on my list…

    I was hearing the oldies song “Who wrote the book of love” in my head as I was reading this review. This would be a fabulous gift for the makeup lover on my Christmas list.
    Who would not LOVE this book of love?

    I’m a fairly new convert to the Shadow Insurance eye primer – I recently tested it here at wht and it’s taken over as my go-to primer whenever I’m wearing shadows, as well as the days I go natural (sans shadows) as a way to even out my lids and give me a refreshed look. For that piece and the completely adorable Tiffany blue case I would drop the $46 for this set.

    BUT then you throw in the Book of Love and I’m a goner. I love every shade in the palette and as a packaging fool and book nerd, I just can’t resist. The brush, mascara, face primer and liner are just big old bonuses. What a great holiday collection.

    This set is a bargain for sure! I like that it’s a set rather than a palette. Too Faced really is stealing the scene this winter. This is another set that would be a good present for yourself, or someone else, especially if you want a complete face set (lip gloss, primer, eye primer, shadow, blush, eye liner and mascara) as opposed to just color products.

      Oh, I agree the “storybook” theme bit is a little much…almost a teenage marketing ploy…but the quality and content more than make up for it. For me, the theme is plenty represented in the dazzlingly soft and romantic colors.

    I love palettes that include wearable shadows and blushes that flatter all skin tones.
    I do wish the lip colors were more…colorful. What is up with palettes including almost invisible lip colors lately? What’s the point? Give me an actual COLOR.

    @stef – What is the staying power on the mascara? I’m still looking for a HG, but my oily lids destroy lesser mascaras…
