Disclaimer- I adore Jess of Love for Lacquer. We’ve been blogging friends for ages so you can bet I was super excited about her collab. But honestly- I’m probably even harder on my friends. Because I know they’re awesome. & can make the absolute best products with the knowledge, integrity, & sheer obsession with beauty they contain. So just because I know her- don’t think this is going to be a soft review! Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the Ittse X Love for Lacquer : The Glambition Collection & I’ve included swatches, thoughts on each shade, & even a video! Keep reading for alllll the details!

In anticipation of travel, I’ve been trying to sift through new & standby products for more compact face options. I recently made a huge Sleek order & picked up a lot of palettes…including the one I want to chat about today!
I bought it. Affiliate links.
One of the items I most wanted to try was the Sleek Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette in Light. I had seen someone say that the shade “Fair” had a blush that barely showed up so “Light” was the next option for my pale skin. [Read more…]
Benefit is known for a lot of things but the first that pops into my mind are blushes. Their boxed blushes are both iconic & super cute- like a small girly accessory. I steered clear of the boxed blushes for a long time until my husband bought me Benefit’s Rockateur & I totally fell in love. I recently picked up two more blushes that I will review soon but that won’t be half as exciting as this palette. If you love cute packaging & want more bang for your buck then Benefit’s Cheeky Sweet Spot Palette which has been released for Holiday 2014 is definitely a must have. With 5 permanent blushes, a bronzer, a cream highlighter, a brush, & an adorable tin…well it is a steal. [Read more…]
Say hello to the highlighter to end all highlighters. I love highlighters so much so when I got this gorgeous little baby from It Cosmetics in the mail I was quite excited. A highlighter! Right up my alley! The It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Radiance Creme is pretty much the only highlighter I’ve reached for in weeks & I’m going to tell you why. Plus, get ready to need yet another brush because there simply isn’t another like it!
When it comes to a true highlight (I love shimmer powders but they don’t look as natural on me) I want something that I can wear just over moisturizer or with a full face of makeup. It needs to look real & like I was somehow born with the ability to glow on command. Ah if I only had that kind of superpower! Well, I guess, now I kind of do.
Now onto the shining star of this post, the It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Radiance Creme. This specific products was designed to blur away fine lines, provide skin with the look of vitality without glitter or shimmer, & to nourish your skin while warding off free-radicals all day long. It automatically lifts & brightens your skin but you won’t even feel it. This is the thinnest veil of creme ever.
Use the back of the box to note what parts of your face you most want to bring forward, add light, & brighten. Again, you can use this on bare skin or foundation & it looks so naturally radiant…it is now considered a must have. This is now entered into my Holy Grail products which is a rarity.
You can see it blended in on the left & pre-blending on the right. Fabulous.
The It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Pointed Precision Luminizer Brush & It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Radiance Creme are available from QVC, QVC.com, ItCosmetics.com, & internationally at The Shopping Channel & theshoppingchannel.com in Canada.
