This palette is a press sample but we are not affiliated with the brand.
Ittse (pronounced It-See) is a San Fran based cosmetics company and my first introduction to the brand came via a collab they did with Dani (@coffeebreakwithdani ) they are cruelty free and USA made and they specialize in making custom palettes where you can pick your pans and the style of the palette you want making it a one stop shop.
My previous experiences have been very positive with this brand having found high quality products and the cutest packaging for a fraction of the cost. They now have a full line of products: shadows, brow stuff, foundation, highlighters, lip items, even primers.. I definitely want to try different stuff from them in the future as so far I have been pleasantly surprised.
The collab this time is with GirlBoss Jess from @loveforlacquer and I cant be more giddy when collabs are with kickass chics that preach female empowerment and following your dreams because nowadays I feel the message is syncing in our youth and we see more and more ambitious girl power preaching babes just carpe the fken diem and get things done and growing up in a repressed society I cant help but be excited for a world where my daughter will not settle for less than what she wants because she sees it impregnated everywhere else: us women taking charge of our futures and refusing to compromise but to let our wings fly and do the fk we want to do. #PREACH YO! anyway it also helps the colors are gorg, even if you have similar shades the formula here was deliciously smooth and delicate.
Finally milled powders that blend into your skin seamlessly and resembled higher end quality. these are dropping in June but I don’t have an exact date – Ittse did mention giving us a non affil code for Cultists to use and save your coins so stay tuned for that.
The collection consists of 4 large pans (3.08g of product per pan): 3 highlighters and 1 satin finish blush. The pans themselves come on a separate box with the explanation for the names and there is palette in a bright peach vegan leather that comes with it to put your stuff into. The palette itself is gorgeous and sturdy with a mirror and a plastic film as a divider in an attempt to keep your powders from dusting into your mirror which I appreciate. The palette reminds me of the Natasha Denona palettes – yup they are gorg.
These are the sleeves the pans came in and they also send some stickers! yayy! one day Ill show you where I put all the stickers I collect from brands lol.
HUSTLE & GLOW: this is a light yellow gold highlighter
Top: HUstle / bottom: Run the world
GOAL DIGGER: a smokier pink
#GIRLBOSS: this is a satin finish peach pink blush.
All the shades are layerable and play nice mixed together, the only shade I would think wont look good layered on a darker skintone would be RUN THE WORLD but with a light hand you can still achieve that silver pink halo of light. My favorites are the blush and Hustle and Glow as they are perfect for spring and summer.
Overall the powder’s texture is amazing, I am very impressed with this brand and certainly would like to see more from them, they blended like a dream and the colors themselves are very pretty and feminine without slacking on the bling.
Tons of swatches:
I like the girl boss best
