When I learned that fellow beauty blogger and social media goddess Jess, the brain and heart behind Love for Lacquer had teamed up with cosmetics company Ittse (pronounced it-see) to create a blush and highlight collection I was so excited for her. Jess is a wife, mom, blogger and she is building a social media empire, on her way to total world domination. It makes perfect sense that she would pad her already impressive resume with her own custom makeup collection.
I am so thrilled that Jess included me in this launch and I can't wait to show you what arrived, yesterday.
As they landed on my doorstep, the four piece blush and highlight collection and customizable magnetic palette. The outer packaging is done up in a theme of coral, gold, grey and dreamy bokeh. There are stars, Ittse's headquarters, the City of San Francisco's skyline, quaint Victorian houses, tea pots and cups, a simply adorable Great Dane and free spirited, pretty girls. Every tiny detail is perfectly attended to, making opening and exploring these pieces so much fun.
The same two packages, back view. There is an introduction to the collection from Jess, pictures of the makeup items and product details.
Just look at the outer box for the makeup pans. These hand drawn Victorian row homes make me want to pack my boxes and run away to the City By the Bay! I have a small connection to San Francisco; my mother grew up there and when she took us kids to visit her beloved City, I was enchanted. It is truly a beautiful, interesting place and I'd love, one day to return, spend more time and really explore what it has to offer.
I tried so hard to get a good photo of the message on the back of the slip sleeve so that you could easily read it but my poor old camera just couldn't get there so I decided to type it up.
This collection represents all the powerful and strong women who are building empires, chasing dreams (in high heels, of course) and who rise, shine and hustle. Through every failure, you will always have a reason to get back up. Dream big, work hard, stay focused and make it happen! XO, Jess
Okay. When was the last time you bought makeup in individual pans that was this sweetly, cozily wrapped up?
When you purchase the Glambition Collection Quad, the individual pans come in these lovely little cardstock slip cases with a cute girl and the most snuggly adorable Great Dane flanking the gold trimmed opening that reveals the plastic encased beautiful colour within. Also included is a romance card with Jess's picture, a greeting to her customers and some hints and tips for using your new face colours.
Here are the four generous size pans in their coral enrobed, customizable magnetic palette in the shade Anemone. There is plenty of room for me to pop a few more pans of shadow, blush... What have you in with them. The mirror in the lid is a good size for polishing my look, making this the perfect little travel palette.
I love the names that were chosen for these colours. They are fun, inspiring and completely of the moment.
The quality of this quad is just lovely. These powders to the touch are soft yet firm, not hard or chalky, not so fragile that it feels crumbly or flaky. The texture is rich and buttery smooth. They swatch up like a dream and apply with ease, buffing into my skin without streaking, skipping or sending fallout everywhere. #GirlBoss blush renders a natural, from under the skin look flush and the highlighters look like liquid silk when whispered on with a fan brush. I haven't had a chance to wear these long enough to know if they fade but so far, they are intact hours later so I'm going to guess that I'll enjoy all day wear from this blush and highlight formula time after time.
#GirlBoss is a beautiful peachy-coral with a nearly hidden floating gold shift. This is the kind of shade I was born to wear! I am coo-coo for coral and this blush makes me very happy.
Hustle and Glow is a warm, golden gleam.
Run the World is a champagne shine that seems to have been created for my fair skin and renders a youthful, lifting light from subtle to "see it from space" intense.
Goal Digger is a delicate, high shine rose pink. Highlight, blush topper, even an eye colour, I think I'll get a lot of use out of this pretty stuff.
I am so impressed with the quality of the makeup and the palette and I whole heartedly recommend that you snap them up on Ittse's website while supplies last!
