      I really wanted this to work. It made me look ten years older and emphasized every pore and wrinkle. I couldn't keep it on longer than thirty minutes due to the itching it caused.

          This was very expensive and the girl who sold it to me had horrible skin and she said it was "her favorite". I thought her skin was just so bad, nothing would help. WRONG. It covers nothing, highlights flaws and makes you break out.

          Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

          I bought this in feb because i needed something quicker than liquid foundation to put on before class. I stayed away from powders for a long time because i have dry, sensitive skin and they always looked cakey - but this was different. All summer this gave me a great glow and EASY full coverage on top of my IT cc cream. However - I don't know if now that I'm not outside as much its the wrong shade, but it's way too yellow now. This was holy grail for me and I got my roommate hooked on it too! Guess I will just wait until summer comes again to use it. It really changed the way I look at powders - now I have a few higher end powders and I'm hooked! This is great if you work indoors and have no time in the morning.

          Price per ounce also led me to other brands for the winter - this is way too expensive to not match me perfectly all year round.

          For reference - i wear fair in the IT cc cream and this powder. The CC cream still matches perfectly.

                  Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                  I can't stand a greasy face in warm weather. This foundation is supposed to be OK for older women, and maybe it's just the texture of my skin, but it still does some creasing in lines, which the brand promises it won't do. It's probably great for people with smoother complexions. It's still much better than other powder foundations I've used, which make me look like Boris Karloff in "The Mummy." I will continue to use it. I wish It would create a foundation between Fair and Light. Fair is too pasty; Light looks a bit orangey.

                          Hi there, thank you for your question! Celebration Foundation Illumination is made for all skin types. Since it is a powder foundation, it is great for oily skin as it helps to absorb oil and control shine, but has a subtle radiant finish to give the skin the look of an inner glow. If the Illumination is too much in combination with your skin, you can try the original Celebration Foundation which has a true matte finish! 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

                          Hi there, thank you for your question! Celebration Foundation Illumination does not run dark. Based on your current foundation shade, we recommend using IT in the shade Rich! XOXO
