It's greasy and will ruin brushes. The store I go to never had the regular, non illuminating one in stock, so I am sick with this one. Somewhat my fault for waiting until the last minute.

    Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

    I haven't used the product enough to make a definite decision as to whether or not I really like this product. I can say that it doesn't last near as long as I would like, and after wearing it for a couple of hours or so, certain areas start to "break apart". I have experienced issues with this foundation allowing moderate oil show through. I'm most definitely on the fence about this product. I do like the pigmentation and coverage, I just wish it was MUCH longer wearing...

    Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

    amazing!! i have really dry skin, and avoid powders. they make me look cakey on top of sticking to dry patches. bit this makes my skin look and feel beautiful! like im not even wearing a powder at all! i use it over top of my cc cream and its a perfect match. only wish the color fair was a tad bit lighter. even still it blends perfectly! i like to use a large fluffy brush and stamp it on. then i go in and blend lightly. i will be sticking with this one for a long time!!

      Emphasizes fine lines & pores.

      By Adriana

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      Really wanted to love this product. I have their bye bye redness and that product works great on me. I wanted to try on a powder foundation that would go on quickly and give me a medium coverage. I have normal to dry skin so I made sure to moisturize first and wait for the moisturizer to fully absorb. I then applied this celebration foundation illumination with the It Cosmetics flat top brush they recommend. It went on really nicely and gave me a medium coverage. However, after checking myself in the mirror about 2 hours later I was really sad to see my face looked shiny/oily and the product had settled into my fine lines/pores making me appear much older. Back it goes to ULTA. Wished this had worked for me :(

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I have dark under eye circles that I have tried, mostly unsuccessfully to cover. When I saw this product on tv and the way that it covered dark spots I decided to give it a try. The coverage is fantastic and really easy to apply. You can build the coverage for light to full coverage. The only issue is that it makes my under eye skin look dry and crepey and brings attention to the fine lines around my eyes. It might be my under eye cream. I will definitely continue to use this product because it is covering my dark circles.

            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

          • Q:

            I have oily skin but want a foundation that provides a dewy finish. I currently use Mac Prolongwear in NW20 and love the way it looks, but as soon as I set it with my RCMA Powder, it takes away all of the luminosity, leaving my foundation looking very flat. Do you think I could use this as a setting powder over my Mac foundation instead of the RCMA Powder to make it stay all day and to have a dewy finish?

              Hi there, thank you for your question! You can absolutely use Celebration Foundation Illumination over top of your current foundation! IT will set your foundation, but does have a hint of subtle radiance to maintain the luminous finish you are after. IT will also add coverage to the skin and some color, so be sure to select the best shade for you! We suggest using Celebration Foundation Illumination in Light based on your shade! XOXO

              Hi there, thank you for your question! Celebration Foundation Illumination is a powder foundation, therefore it will be less hydrating by nature than CC+ Cream. We suggest sticking with CC+ Cream but using Celebration Foundation Illumination to set IT. IT will give you added coverage and also keep your makeup lasting all day! Try IT out at your local Ulta store! XOXO
