ittsē Customizable Cosmetics: Lip Creme Color Swatches, Review











I've always been drawn to customizable makeup palettes.  Not only do you get to choose the colors that you will actually wear and use,  you get to have everything in plain sight in one convenient package.  I've always gravitated towards Z palettes or any customizable palettes because not only do I like rearranging the colors in the palette, I also like looking at them and choosing the colors I will wear for the day.

ittsē (obviously a play of the word "itsy") is a brand of customizable makeup that are specifically designed to be mixed and matched in palettes. I was able to try two of the lip products from this brand. The ittsē Lip Creme Color are lip colors in tiny pots that you can bring with you anywhere, and can easily fit into a customizable palette (that ittsē also sells). Main ingredients of the ittsē Lip Creme Color are:

o Carnauba wax - for a smooth application and glossy finish
o Beeswax - to protect and nourish lips against the elements
o Vanilla Fragrance and Natural Peppermint oil - to please the senses and soothe & calm

I am a sucker for complexion oils.  My skin is especially dry and flaky these days because I am on a prescription retinoid regimen, but complexion oils help calm the irritation caused by the retinoids, and at the same time, help to make the skin look moisturized and supple when I wake up in the morning.

I will do a separate video or written review on my skincare routine and complexion oils review, but  I can say that using a good moisturizer (and, in my case, I prefer complexion oils right now) is the best tip I can give you.

Below is a video about 5 skincare tips from an aesthetician.   What skincare tip interests you the most?
