          This foundation makes my skin look sooooo flawless! Covers my pores and my freckles! Very smooth texture so if you wanna cake on your foundation it won't dry out your skin! Medium to full build able coverage. It mattifies your skin but also adds a little glow its the craziest thing ever. The best foundation I have used.

            I have very fair, dry skin and have stayed away from powder foundations since I had so many disasters with them in high school. This one changes the game! It gives my skin a nice glow without being sparkly and manages to cover my redness and does help disguise large pores. I was skeptical at first but it really does everything it claims to do. I apply it with a flat top IT cosmetics kabuki foundation brush and it blends like a dream. Perfect for days when I wake up late after a long night of studying but still want the confidence boost of wearing makeup! I love IT!

            I love this product, but as a woman who wears makeup every single day of the year this product does not last long and must be bought monthly which becomes costly. Other than the costs vs. ratio i would recommend it to my friends and family.

                    I usually do a full, glam makeup application that is time consuming and not exactly "natural" looking. I bought this by accident thinking it was simply pressed powder. Tried it anyway and OMG! One simple stroke gave me incredible coverage (no more sunspots or blemishes!) and still looked incredibly natural. It is now my go-to for quick and easy makeup on the weekends and when on vacation. On my regular makeup days of full war paint, I find that it is a nice blender in areas where I'm using both foundation and concealer - it bridges the gap in color without everything getting super heavy.

Both foundations offer the same great coverage and skincare benefits, however the original Celebration Foundation has a natural matte finish. Celebration Foundation Illumination contains our Drops of Light Technology that gives the skin the look of subtle radiance for a "glow from within" finish. We hope you try It out! XOXO

                            HI there, thank you for reaching out to IT! We can assure you that the Tan shade of Celebration Foundation Illumination is deeper in tone than the Medium. The shades in the photo may be affected by the lighting. We hope you view IT in person at your local Ulta location! XOXO

                          Will this cover my redness without having to use my BB tinted primer from tarte? I'm afraid the powder won't go/blend over it well.

                            Hi there, we're happy to help! Celebration Foundation Illumination is a color correcting powder foundation. IT will help to even out discoloration and cover skin imperfections. Depending on how it wears on your skin, it may be enough coverage for you. However, there is chance you may want to use a concealer with IT for additional coverage. Try IT out alone and see how IT wears on your skin! XOXO
