    Have been using this for a few years now and really like it alot. It is lightweight and gives great coverage. I've gotten compliments on my skin (which without makeup is red due to rosacea). I won't use anything else.

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I usually buy the non-Illumination version of this product, but when I went to the store last time they were out of my shade. Based on the suggestion of the sales girl, who did color match the shade I chose, I bought the Illumination instead (it was the same price as the regular). When I wore it the first day I quickly realized that I should have just come back when they got in the regular. The shade was actually a lot more off than it looked in the store, it is a bit darker than I really should wear. I also feel like the "Illumination" aspect just doesn't go well with my skin. I tend to have oily skin and even though I put other products on to keep my trouble spots from looking oily, this particular foundation tended to make my face look shiny and oily, whereas the regular version did not. Overall it's just less "matte" than the regular IT foundation.
      The reason I didn't list any cons is because there wasn't really a huge problem with the product itself, it's just that it didn't work well with my particular type of skin and my preferences. Other than that it's probably a good product. It is high quality like the regular foundation in this brand. If you don't have oily skin and you get the right shade, this product will probably work pretty well for you.

        Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

        I loved the formula of this foundation, but I had to return because it had a slight pink undertone to it (hence the four stars). I would buy it in a heartbeat if they had more selection with a yellow undertone. Besides that, everything else was perfect. I have very oily acne prone skin and I usually stay away from dewey finishes, but this gave my skin a natural glow while covering the redness. I used it to set my CC cream from It Cosmetics. I was sad to say bye to this. I really hope they come up with more color selection.

                        Hi there, thanks for reaching out to us! Of course, primer is not necessary with any foundation and is really personal to each individual and their skin. If primer helps to keep your foundation lasting longer and helps with your skin, definitely use IT! XOXO

                      I really want something that i can build up to have coverage but with still let my skin show through. I hate when powder foundation looks like a mask so i need something i can use for events that will provide coverage but nothing powdery or cakey. Would this product be good for that? and what brush would be best for a natural medium coverage with this?

                        Hi there, thank you so much for your interest in IT! While Celebration Foundation Illumination is a full coverage foundation, IT is talc free and will never feel heavy or cakey. IT's super blendable so you can apply just the right amount to your skin! Since you're looking for medium coverage we suggest pairing IT with the Airbrush Blurring Foundation Brush #101. While IT is a dense brush, it's loose enough to not apply too much powder and also with the dome shade it picks up just the right amount of product for a perfect application! Check IT out using the link below! XOXO

                        Hello there! We are happy to help you! Our Celebration Foundation is amazing for oily/combo skin types. This is a powder foundation with hydrating properties, so IT never leaves your skin feeling or looking dry or cakey, while helping to absorb excess oils throughout the day. The Illumination version has a "glow from within" finish, and does not contain glitter or shimmer. This will not add to your oil, just give you the look of radiance and bright skin! Our original Celebration Foundation will leave a matte finish. XOXO

                        Hi there! That's a great question, we're happy to help you out. Our fair shade tends to have cooler, pink tones to IT, however if you go one shade up the light shade does have warmer, yellow tones to IT so you may find it works perfect for you! Don't forget you can always check out your local Ulta store as well :) XOXO
