Ittse CoffeeBreakWithDani Lotus Collection

Ittse CoffeeBreakWithDani Lotus Collection Review, Swatches, Tutorial, Look

Today I’m thrilled to be bringing you the Ittse CoffeeBreakWithDani Lotus Collection. I’ve got a review, tutorial and look with the Lotus collection by Dani. The lotus is a symbol of rebirth from a dark place into beauty. I think it’s the perfect choice for Dani’s collection.

Price
$35 (without palette), $56 (with palette in the color of your choice)

If you love this collection, you can use Dani’s code of DANILOTUS20 to get the collection for $28, but I think this code ends 12/21 (Wednesday). The code gives you 20% off.

The Packaging

I received a gorgeous metallic gold palette with the four colors from Dani. This palette is sturdy and has a magnetic closure. Inside is a nice mirror. It’s magnetized so that you can put any size refill pans in it. Think of it as a small, fancy z-palette. If you already have a z-palette though, these colors will fit into it nicely.

The Lotus Collection Swatches

These colors are swatched on bare skin.

Determined is a dirty antique gold with a hint of olive. This is the least multi-dimensional shade, but it’s very metallic.

Stronger
Stronger is a berry pink that is stuffed with teal, blue and violet sparkle and iridescence. You can layer it over different bases to change how it looks.

Ittse CoffeeBreakWithDani Lotus Collection Better swatch

Better
Better is an amazing emerald with teal blue color shifting sparkle. It looks teal, emerald, and blackened green. So gorgeous.

Wiser is a stunning blue violet with purple, pink and blue sparkle and iridescence. It can look more blue or purple depending on the angle.

I actually took these two photos at the end of the day, after wearing my makeup all day, so my foundation is mostly gone in this photo.

To create this simple hooded eye makeup look, I used Walk of Shame as a base shade. Then I applied Stronger in the smoky dome shape to the lid and hood. I used Laced as a transition and along the lower lid. I went back with All Nighter Spray on a damp brush and patted Stronger on the lid to intensify the pink. I used All Nighter Spray and Better at the lower lash line.

Ittse Better Wiser Tutorial

  1. Using the Sigma E25, apply Better to the outer half of the lid and lower lid, and create a cat eye shape.
  2. With the Makeup Geek Foiled brush, pat Wiser on the inner lid and inner lower lid.
  3. Using the real techniques multi-purpose eye brush, blend Urban Decay Instinct onto the hood of the eye as the transition shade.
  4. Use the Sigma E06 to apply tarte Black clay paint liner to the upper and lower lash line.
  5. Go back over Wiser and Better with damp brushes to intensify their sparkle. Then highlight under the outer brow and at the inner corner of the eyes with Makeup Geek Moon Phase on the Sigma E45. Apply mascara.

My lashes look sad right now because I’m waiting for my lash extensions to all fall out. I’m taking a break from them for a while because of my allergies.

About the CoffeeBreakWithDani Eyeshadows

Dani designed these eyeshadows with Ittse. She wanted to create eyeshadows for those who love color, sparkle and shine. They’re packed with pearlized pigments. So while you can apply them dry, they really look beautiful when applied with a mixing medium or damp brush.

Using Urban Decay’s All Nighter makes the Lotus collection eyeshadows super sparkly. If you use something like Inglot Duraline will make it like a smooth metallic or pearl. And if you apply them dry, they look more sheer. If you know Dani, you’ll know that she loves to layer eyeshadows, so these colors are truly perfect for layering to intensify other colors, too. The way I like applying them is to apply them dry, blend the edges, then go back with a bit of product on a damp brush to intensify the shine.

The colors wore all day on Milani Eyeshadow primer for me. The Stronger photos I took 10 hours after initial application. I also had no issues with blending.

I think this is a beautiful collection from Dani and Ittse. I love the colors she created, especially Better and Wiser. I plan on trying Better on top of a bright green in the near future.
