      Comments about It Cosmetics Airbrush Illuminizer:

      I was a bit wary of buying this product because of the previous comments, but I use other IT products and am very happy with them. I am 54 years old and was looking for something to do exactly what the description says. This illuminizer is full of good anti-aging ingredients to care for your skin without all the harmful additives. Yes, it's white and you don't need to use a lot. I suspect the reason so many people are getting too much on their skin and getting a white cast is because of the puff applicator included. Instead, I went straight for my make-up brush, tapped a little in the cap, swirled my brush in it, tapped off any excess, then applied. The result? Perfect, lightweight coverage with the slightest sheen. It does not settle into lines like some powders do. It brightens my complexion and sets my IT CC+ foundation. I also did not need to blot throughout the day. For me, his product does what it says if applied properly.

      Favorite Finishing Powder

      Comments about It Cosmetics Airbrush Illuminizer:

      I have a very fair complexion with pink tones, I also have oily and acne prone skin if I don't keep my pores clean. For me this product is amazing. I use IT's Your Skin But Better CC+ as my foundation and as soon as I blend it well I take the Illuminator, with the puff included, and pat it under my eyes, on my nose, above my lip, between and just above my eyebrows asks finally the center of my chin. Then using a large blending brush I lightly swirl it around those areas to smooth it out. Those are my most oily areas (T-zone) and it keeps my makeup in place without creasing or clogging my pours. It also creates a nice glow without looking too dewy. If you're worried about it being shimmery, don't be, it's far from that.

        I bought this product to use as a highlighter, and i'll be honest I don't use it at all!! It has too much glitter in the product, but it definitely gives that do-ey look. Also, I don't know which brush I should apply it with, because if I put it in the wrong spot it looks terrible!

          Comments about It Cosmetics Airbrush Illuminizer:

          I wanted to wait for a month before writing a fair review. I am in my late 30's so I am looking for a little glow that doesn't make me look like I have glitter all over. I have used this with various brushes as well as the little puff that comes with it. The puff is nice but it's not effective since it comes out in a big clump if you used it. I tried a nice IT powder brush and used a ton of product and saw nothing. I even went outside and used a mirror to see if you could see it in the natural light.. nope, nothing. I think it was a complete waste of money to be honest. I now use the Becca Pearl glow and achieve the look I was going for. (that too has issues such as the pump that makes too much product come out but I open the top and use it very sparingly) Also, if it helps I am fair complected with pink undertones. Hope that helps.

            Comments about It Cosmetics Airbrush Illuminizer:

            I purchased this after getting a great consultation this past weekend from an Ulta employee. It looked good but was a little cakey since I'd already had a full face of makeup on before going in and then had this layered on top, so I was curious how it would do in the correct application and my answer is, it looked pretty darned amazing!!! It is a bit glittery in full sun but that's to be expected since it's meant to diffuse light across your face for a flawless finish and that I think it accomplishes. I'm on my way back this week for the serum and the disk, I'm SOLD! I'm a 48 year old woman who is getting some lines around my eyes and mouth and this is like an eraser on them, so if you are bothered by crepe-ing and lines, give this a try and see if it works for you, too! And if you miss your glow, this will bring that back as well...

            Comments about It Cosmetics Airbrush Illuminizer:

            This product is very difficult for me to use, if only because of the fact that it does near nothing for me. When applying, far too much powder comes out of the jar and it always sticks on the first place I touch on my face (making it difficult to blend). Though I like lighter foundations and powders (because of my extremely dry skin), this product was too lightweight, and I could not determine which parts of my skin were actually being covered. I see no difference from before and after application, except sometimes an almost white sparkle on certain spots on my face.

              Great product!! The only setback is the container and white cast. Ultra fine powder gets every where and too much comes out at once.

              Also if you have a tan to deep complexion it can leave a white cast. You have to make sure you blend it out well.

              Skin feels amazing!!! It gives you the feel of baby skin. I have sensitive skin and its paraban free.

                  It was supposed to be translucent which is important to me because I have fair skin and don't like the orange-y tone that most powders give me on my jaw line. But this powder was very pastey and made me look very ghostly. Took it back right away.

                      This is a great finishing powder. Only a little bit is needed and then swirled around the face with a soft round brush (IT Cosmetics brushes are so soft) for final coverage. Soft, gentle, does not settle into lines. I have tried many expensive and midpriced lines for finishing powders. This is now my one and only.
