    Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

    This product worked well when I had nothing on underneath it so it is good for an on the go quick coverage. However, as part of my normal makeup routine, I found it extremely drying and really maximized the look and size of my pores on my cheeks. I use a lighter serum foundation by Perricone (before this I use Perricone's amine face lift and finishing moisturizer), use concealer where needed, and then applied the powder - hated this combination on my skin and ended up purchasing a different product. The sales woman told me that this product has antiaging benefits so maybe the combination of perricone's anti-aging properties and this is too much for my skin, but I haven't had a problem with my new powder (Urban Decay Naked).

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I really love the formula. It went on evenly and made my skin look smooth. But once I stepped back from the mirror, my face was so white compared to my neck, I looked like michael jackson! I wanted to exchange it for a different color, but the next shade darker has too much pink for me. My skin tone is between light and medium and is very pink due to rosacea. If your skin tone is within the four or five colors offered, I recommend this product.

        I do have olive skin, but haven't been able to be out in the sun in a long time. I also have sensitive skin and this powder really covers so much. I use it with another all-over powder and it blends well. I do love it and will purchase more of it.

          Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

          This stuff is amazing. I have searched for so long for a good powder foundation, particularly with good coverage & also good for my skin. I was using Bare Minerals for awhile, & while I do like it for just everyday, I was wanting more coverage for going places other than the store, errands, etc. Also found that BM wasn't really staying on my combo/oily skin very long. I was watching one of my favorite YouTube Beauty Gurus & she raved about this stuff. I decided to try it, & so happy I did! It's more expensive than what I usually pay for foundations, but I've found it to be worth it. I achieve awesome coverage SO fast on my (very rosy) cheeks, vs. my usual buffing minerals into my skin for 5+ mins. I don't even need a concealer or highlighter anymore. It gives a beautiful glow. Don't let it scare you if you have oily skin. I haven't had a problem with it not lasting. Also I feel so good knowing it's doing good things for my skin. I can't wait to try more from this brand. Thank you, IT Cosmetics! :)

            I was pretty disappointed in this product. I purchased the lightest shade and it was still too dark for me. The coverage just isn't there to me either, I didn't really find it buildable without looking cakey. The only way I use it that seeems to look semi-decent, is by ususing it as a finishing powder. Over all not impressed.

              • Q:

                hi, I have combination skin (dry patches and oily tzone & cheeks). as appealing as the illumination concept may be, I'm afraid that I will end up like an oil slick. Would you recommend the original formula instead or is the illumination formula suitable for truly combination skin? Thank you.

                  Hi
                  Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!! We are more than happy to help you with this today!! Our Illummination products do not contain glitter or shimmer or really any type of pearlized look - it really just gives you the added look of radiance and light. However, for those with oliy skin, we do recommend not using the Illumination products and sticking with the original!

              • Q:

                Hello.. what is the difference between the regular "Celebration Foundation" and the "Celebration Foundation Illumination"... does one give more coverage than the other? I have very fair skin, dry and dull with some redness and scarring. Which of these products would you recommend for my skin type and which shade? I currently use Laura Geller Balance and Brighten Foundation in Fair. Finally, what is your return policy if color/shade and coverage is not satisfactory? Thank you for your assistance Cee Cee

                  We are more than happy to help you with this today!!! Celebration Foundation Illumination is the same award winning formula infused with a blend of anti-aging skin-loving ingredients including the drops of light technology and a natural, youthful luminescence!

                  Both of these foundations are full coverage, created with plastic surgeons to cover skin imperfections but never settle in fine lines and wrinkles. Foundation should never make you look older! Original foundation has a matte finish. Illumination has a subtle radiance. It's not shiny. It's not metallic. This full-coverage powder foundation, anti-aging formula treats your skin with hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants, silk, and aloe, and it gives the skin a soft, candlelit glow. We like to think of Celebration Foundation Illumination as your most beautiful day…in a compact!

                  Hi!!! thank you for your question and your interest in our products!!! Shade wise we would recommend our Tan Foundation colors!!!!! As for what foundation to use with dry skin, it depends on just how dry your skin is! While the Celebration Foundation Illumination is very moisturizing for a powder, if you have super dry skin we recommend going with CC Cream instead!! CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ is truly a multi-tasking beauty miracle. It's your SPF 50+ UVA/UVB Physical only sunscreen that protects against the rays that both burn your skin and age your skin. CC+™ is infused with cutting edge Anti-Aging technology and is clinically proven to improve skin texture, brightness and increase skin hydration by 79%. XOXOX
