        Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

        I was hoping to like this product, but it didn't work out for me. I have combination skin and this powder both made me look incredibly oily and cakey. This settled into every pore on my face and accented my few dry patches while also making me so greasy that I felt the need to rush home and wash it off. I've never had a foundation sit on my skin and look so visible. Also didn't help that I could feel it on my skin all day.

              Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

              I absolutely love this product. I usually wouldn't buy a "higher end" foundation but this has intrigued me since it launched. I hate wearing foundation in general because I hate the feeling of it on my face. I really don't have acne but I wanted something to even out my skin tone but not feel heavy. I have found my ride of die product! It looks like your skin but better!

                This is BY FAR the best foundation I've ever used. I have hyper-pigmentation on my forehead and cheeks and it's an excellent foundation that covers flaws very well. I've used another very popular mineral foundation but this takes the cake. THANK YOU!

                        Hi there, thank you for your question! Some IT Cosmetics product do contain caffeine. You can view complete lists of ingredients for all products sold through Ulta on each product page. The ingredients are found on the right hand side, at the third drop down menu. Specifically, green tea is not commonly used however they do contain caffeine. We do advise consulting with your doctor before use of IT with any further concerns! XOXO

                        Hi there, thank you for reaching out to IT! Since Celebration Foundation Illumination is a powder foundation, IT is best applied with a flat top brush such as the Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Brush #6. This style brush head offers the most full coverage finish when applying powder foundation. You can shop IT directly through the link below! XOXO

                      I currently use the Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer in medium, and I want to use a setting powder with it (I tried the Bye Bye Pores Finishing Powder, but it was too dark/yellow and the texture was not for me).

                      Could I use the Celebration Foundation Illumination as a setting powder with my Bye Bye Foundation? And, if so, which shade would pair better with the medium Bye Bye Foundation--light or medium?

IT contains optical blurring pigments to blur skin imperfections for your most airbrushed looking skin. IT applies sheer but is buildable so you have complete control. XOXO

This brush is intended to touch ups or convenience on-the-go. We do advise using a flat top brush for best application, such as the Airbrush Buffing Foundation Brush #110. IT will apply Celebration Foundation Illumination with the most coverage! XOXO
