    Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

    This is by far the best foundation I have ever used. I apply this product with IT Brushed for Ulta Airbrush Foundation Brush #110. The foundation applied with the brush gives me a blemish-free, smooth appearing face that is still natural-looking. It works well for oily skin- my face still looks fresh at the end of the day!

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I've always used liquid foundations and I was totally surprised at the level of coverage I was able to get. It applies well and wears about the same as when I wear liquid foundations with setting powder.

      I just wish it came in a larger variety of shades. I'm quite pale, and while the Fair shade works well enough for quick, everyday work makeup it's perhaps a bit too dark for me still.

              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.

                          Hi!
                          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!
