          Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

          Does not live up to the hype of flawless skin coverage. When watching the product demonstration, they bill it as complete and flawless coverage, I'd like to know what they are actually using on the models because it certainly does not cover much. It is powdery and it is no better than a big brand name foundation at 1/2 the cost.

              Was told this was a great and better alternative to clinique when the store I went to didn't carry it. I have sensitive, combination skin and am very fair. This makeup is heavily scented. I decided to give it a try since I was out of clinique. Within three hours of application I had little hives all over my face. I tried using the brush that comes in the compact but it didn't apply the powder well so I switched to a silicone free sponge. Big mistake. I looked like I had clown makeup on and felt like a had a heavy mask on my face. I wore this product on and off for a week hoping it would get better with different application techniques. I returned it within the week. I can't recommend this to anyone, especially because of the price. You're better of with any drug store brand or if you want to spend a little more go with clinique.

              I use the light powder on my fair, sensitive, skin. I like how it has light reflecting qualities. I put it on once in the morning over my IT CC foundation to set it. It gives a nice matte finish. I do have to touch up by afternoon because of shine, but that may be related to the CC foundation. I like this powder. It's light and covers nice. I haven't tried it on it's own yet so not sure of how it covers by itself.

                  The store rep tried this on me and said it looked really good on my skin. I looked at the mirror and it seemed to be ok. Until after I went outside in real light. WOW, all the lines on my face were amplified, and my face was very shiny. I was asked if I was feeling well. Right back it went. Too bad I used my 20% coupon on this.

                    Love this product I normally use the matte finish IT celebration foundation and was reluctant to try the illumination, I love a full coverage matte finish and didn't want to risk purchasing a pricey product and hate it. However I found that the illumination celebration covers better lasts longer and has a light illumination for a fresh look as opposed to the oily sheeny I was afraid of. I would also note that if you have sensitive or dry skin this product is lighter weight and does not promote oil accumulation.

                      I have NEVER been able to wear a powder that didn't look cakey or accentuate dry areas on my face..UNTIL THIS! I first saw this on HotandFlashy's youtube channel, and then on emilynoel's youtube channel and I liked their results. (Both young and mature skin types). I have tried it alone, over BB/CC creams, and over a foundation and loved the results each time. Bare Minerals was an absolute nightmare on my face, and turned me against powder foundations for years until I tried this. Beautiful finish, flawless and easy application, and nice hydrated look on dry skin. Even my husband noticed my skin looked healthier! I use the Sedona Lace Midnight Lace angled brush and it applies like a dream. Very happy customer! :)

                          You would choose a foundation shade depending on the color of your skin.

                          Fair porcelain
                          Light (Ultra Fair Skintones)
                          Medium (Light to Medium Skintones – Most Popular Shade – 70%)
                          Tan (Warm Medium)
                          Rich (Deep Tan)

                          We hope this helps!! XOXO

                          Thank you for your question!! While this foundation is more hydrating then most powders, most IT Girls find that if they have really dry skin the CC Cream works better while giving the same full coverage!
