So y’all are probably like ‘So much for finally being caught up!’ I am. I was. But guess who forgot to set all of my posts to PUBLISH? Now that I’m finally settled and getting into a new routine, I’ve been sort of taking it easy. I’m just trying to just enjoy things. I should have at least checked in. Oops?

Anyway, back in December I was first introduced to the brand ittse. I’m still loving my Dani X ittse The Lotus Collection. It’s surprisingly still available. I highly suggest scooping it up while you still can! I was so impressed with the collection and how beautifully put together it was that I jumped at the chance to scoop up another fun collab. This one is The Glambition Collection which is a collab between Jess of Love for Lacquer and ittse.

Unlike The Lotus Collection, The Glambition Collection is full of face products. It includes a beautiful blush, 2 universal illuminating powders, and a multi-tasking all over glow powder. #Girlboss is a beautiful pinky peach blush with a satin finish. Hustle & Glow is a champagne gold highlighter. Run The World is a light champagne highlighter. I’m getting some serious rose gold vibes from Goal Digger. All of the shades are nicely pigmented. They’re so soft and buttery. They applied and blended beautifully.

This collection really is versatile. I’ve used Goal Digger on my eyelid and #Girlboss in my crease. The highlighters offer some serious glow too. Of course you can just as easily tone it down and opt for a more natural look. I think it would have been cool if the collection included a bronzer as well for a complete face look. But then that would mean parting with one of the highlighters and I just couldn’t give one of these up.

You can see this collection in action below!

Overall, I’d have to say it was another wonderful collab that was very beautifully put together. And it’s refreshingly different from the typical face collections that are out there now.

You can purchase The Glambition Collection here for $35.00. For an extra $15.00 you can add a palette to your order which is a great deal since the palettes cost $24.00. I really love their palettes. They come in 6 pretty shades and it includes a mirror. ittse ships within the US and Canada!

Swatches: Sweet Thing, Main Squeeze, Dirty Peach, Poppin’

We’re still on Valentine’s Day stuff? Yes. Yes we are! Better late than never, eh?

I was really impressed with the Kylie Cosmetics Sweet Heart Set and couldn’t wait to try the Kiss Me Set. Was the Kiss Me Set just as nice as the Sweet Heart Set? Let’s find out!

The eyeshadow duo contains the shades Sweet Thing and Main Squeeze. It’s just as nice as the duo in the Sweet Heart Set. The shadows applied and blended beautifully. The shades really do compliment each other nicely and made for a super cute look! I can’t get over how pretty Sweet Thing is!

Poppin’ Gloss is a pretty sparkly gold. It applied nice and evenly. I didn’t like it as much as Literally Gloss, but it wasn’t sticky and made for a comfortable wear. I just felt this one was a little too sheer for my liking.

Dirty Peach Matte Liquid Lipstick is a mid-tone yellow peach. Sadly this shade isn’t doing me any favors. It kind of makes me look sickly. It also looks so much different in my hand swatch. It definitely doesn’t look that bright on my lips. However, it did apply nicely and made for a comfortable wear.

I’m kind of sad that this is the end of my Kylie Valentine’s Day goodies. But you can expect to see the products in upcoming looks because I’m really digging everything! Well, everything expect for Dirty Peach maybe? Yikes!

ColourPop Blow Me Away Palette

Swatches: Take a Break, Issues, Centerfold, Slim Fit

Ok so remember when I was all ‘Death to ColourPop?’ Well, that lasted about 2 months. Just after I decided to ban them they came out with their new pressed shadows. My friend ordered a bunch and kept telling me how I had to stop being so stubborn and place an order. I was very tempted, but I stood my ground. Then their Valentine’s Day promo photos started making their rounds on Instagram and I knew I had to swallow my pride and get myself a little something. I did and have been ordering from them since. I still have to post about the Valentine’s Day stuff I got, but for now I want to talk about some of their other pressed shadows. Like the Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette. For the record, I do still hate them. But my love for makeup is much stronger. And that’s where I’m at right now.

ColourPop Blow Me Away Palette

Blow Me Away contains 4 pressed shadows in the shades Take a Break which is a duochrome peach with a subtle gold flip, Issues which is a matte pastel peach, Centerfold which is a matte vibrant coral, and Slim Fit which is a matte hot red coral. The palette itself is a cute white cardboard box with a slim window in the front revealing the shadows. The box is covered in lots of silver stars and tucked inside a bright orange cardboard sleeve.

I’m digging the fun, Summer friendly shades. They all applied and blended beautifully. Even the matte shades surprisingly. I did end up using another darker shade from another palette to balance out all of the coral and peach tones. But it all still makes for a super cute look.

I’d like to note that the shades Centerfold and Slim Fit are not intended for use in the immediate eye area. I wish I had known that before applying Slim Fit on my lower lash line. I just know some of that got in my eye. I’ll probably overthink that one of these nights I’m trying to go to sleep at a reasonable hour.

I’ll definitely purchase more of their pressed products. I’d like to see them offer some larger palettes so that we could build our own palettes in one place. In the meantime I got myself a MAC palette to store all of my ColourPop shadows. I can probably fill it up already. For $5 a pop you really can’t go wrong. Some shades are even on sale for $4! I’d definitely pop in and take a look. But be careful with their shipping. I guess with ColourPop it’s a risk we all take. One can only hope that they start putting more effort into their customer service in the near future.

You can see a look I created with the Blow Me Away Pressed Powder Shadow Palette below. I applied Take a Break on my lid, Centerfold in my inner crease, and Slim Fit in my outer crease and on my lower lash line (lightly).

Note: Remember when I talked about those beautiful It Cosmetics Confidence In Your Glow Palettes? I’m wearing Instant Nude Glow in the photos above! Those palettes are gorgeous and I highly suggest testing them out if you spot them at your local Ulta!

ColourPop now offers larger palettes! I’ve already ordered a few and will post about it soon!
