            This is my holy grail. It's quick, luminous for us over 40 chicky's. I do all my serums, then sunscreen, then plop this on top with some setting spray after I am done and it stays on all day. I have normal to dry skin so this is still on after 10 hours for me. Just ordered my friend one and sent it to her house... ha ha
            By far the best one out there... The glow is beautiful and it covers my hyperpigmentation. Can't be without it... It Cosmetics as a brand never disappoints. < 3

                Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                Terrible, terrible product with extremely false advertising. This isn't a foundation, it's a very pricey highlighter. Covered absolutely nothing. In fact, it settled in and showed up lines and pores I didn't even know I had! Actually appeared to clump in places so that I had large patches of sparkly grey all over my cheeks. Plus, gave a strange shine that made me think of the iridescence of dead fish scales. Not worth the money.

                  So much faster and easier to apply than liquid foundation. It is buildable from light to full coverage with a gorgeous dewy finish. Unfortunately it gives me closed comedones but everyone's skin is different so it might be amazing for someone else.

                  Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                  This powder wasn't what I expected it to be. I bought it online when they were having a set of 6 items from IT on sale for a very reasonable price. First off, the shade that I got happened to be too light. It made me look as pale as a ghost but with a light bit of bronzer here and there, it was wearable. This foundation is definitely FULL coverage. I would say that its so full that its cakey, feels heavy on the skin and not for oily skinned gals. I'm not extremely oily, just a little on the t-zone, but when I applied this foundation to my entire face all I could see was my pores. It made my pores in the t-zone look HUGE! It's not glittery but there is definitely some type of "shine" or glow to it which made my pores look that much worse. I tried to set that area with IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores powder and it helped a little but not very much. It also settled into every line and I'm in my early 20's with little to no lines. I could not get passed that my entire t-zone looks like a strobe light due to the "glow" in this foundation. I don't think "glow" is for t-zones.
                  On the other hand, this powder is a perfect base for my eyeshadow. It adds a nice luminous glow to my eye lids and holds eyeshadow very well thanks to the tacky cakyness of the foundation. It's also perfect for highlighting cupids bow, down the bridge of the nose, and under the eyebrow. These are honestly the only reasons I kept this powder and still use it. It's a giant container for only these uses but I won't ever use this as a foundation for my face again. Perhaps the original, non-luminous, version of this foundation would work better. But it was VERY heavy.

                      Why is it that medium is darker than tan in the picture of your selection of shades?

                        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
