REVIEW: Too Faced Look of Love Spring Collection

I don't own many Too Faced products so i decided to get this set, since it seemed like a really good value to start off with. Aside from the gorgeous limited edition bag that everything came in, the products themselves are really good and worth having - a limited edition trio with two eyeshadows and a blush, a flatbuki brush, full size glamour gloss in Barely Legal, full size lash injection mascara, full size shadow insurance and a deluxe primed and poreless.
It really is a great value set and everything is wearable everyday. 
Just to give you an idea, the whole set was about $40. The Lash Injection alone, full size, is $21. The full size Shadow Insurance primer is $18 and the full size Glamour Gloss is $19 - just these three purchased separately would come up to $58! Crazy! And this doesn't even include the rest of the great products that come in the bag. Searching for it online, it says that the value of the whole thing comes up to $124, and you can see why. I'm still playing around with the products and i want to make a separate review posts for the face primer and the lash injection mascara; and of course an FOTD using the lovely trio with the shadows and blush.

The trio is definitely my favorite. First of all starting with the packaging. Who doesn't love butterflies?!?! So cute! The compact comes with a handy mirror, so you can easily carry this in your purse. It comes with the two eyeshadows, Silk Teddy (champagne sheen) and Totally Toasted (shimmery bronzy brown). And also a blush, La Vie en Rose (shimmery pink).

Glamour Gloss Volumizing Lip Gloss- Barely Legal
I actually really like this gloss. It's a really gorgeous creamy pink and it remind me a lot of Nars Turkish Delight. The only difference is that although it looks creamy its actually one of those slightly sticky glosses. I do however love the little tingle it gives my lippies, since its a volumizing gloss. The smell is like a sweet marshmallow vanilla, really loving it. Here are some swatches of it. 

Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara
I haven't really had a chance to try it out yet, only because i'm always in a rush to get to work on time and i have no time to test out things. Just in case they don't work out as i expect it, i don't have time to fix something when i have to run out the door. I'll try it out when i have more time and make sure to give all of you a good thorough review of this product since i hear a lot of good things about it. One thing i will say though is that the smell is a downside already. It smells a lot like plastic and its kind of weird for a mascara to have that kind of strong plasticky smell but hopefully it works. Stay tuned!
All-in-all im very happy with this set and i think every single product, including the gorgeous bag, is definitely worth having and trying out. I really love that a lot of these are actual full sized products which makes the whole deal worth it. Definitely a monthly fav!
Have you tried any of these products?
