        I use this as a base coverage to hide redness and blemishes and even out the face. So quick and easy and doesn't feel chalky:

                I normally use the full coverage powder foundation by Bobbi Brown but due to having to vut dow. On the expenses, IT cosmetics illiminating powder foundation was recomended and I am very satisfied. There is nothing like Bobbi Brown but for having to step down in brand and price IT Cosmetics is worth it!

                So i'm a poor college student with stupid oily skin, hyper-pigmentation, & acne scars like you can't believe and i LOVE this stuff. I really don't like to wear foundation especially in the summer time and especially when it's a thick foundation. I saw all of the YouTube videos about this stuff and i just had to try it. It makes your skin look flawless with just a thin layer of powder!Covers my redness, Most of my acne scars (Cause some are Really bad) and it gives me a dewy natural finish! Can't go wrong with this stuff. I just wish it wasn't so expensive but with all of the good skin loving ingredients in it...i can see why it cost a lot. With the right primer...this stuff will last like 6 to 8 hours with out a touch up.

                    Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                    Celebration Foundation has been in my daily makeup routine for almost a year. I normally always choose the matte finish because it seems to wear well and doesn't expose my naturally oily skin. I decided to try the Illumination. Upon the first application, I was impressed with the coverage, shade match to Mt natural skin, and the light weight feel. As the day went on, the Illumination Foundation began settling into my fine lines under my eyes and into my smile lines. It also did not mask the oiliness of my skin and made it look a bit worse. I have tried playing with it for about 3 days now, but have decided to exchange for the matte finish.
                    Personally, I do not think this product works well with naturally oily skin. Will not repurchase in the Illumation finish.

                      I started using this for myself a few months ago and I love the coverage I get so much that I now buy it for my daughter who is in her early 20s and suffering from acne. She loves the coverage and ease of putting it on. It's easy to carry and travel with too which is an extra bonus since I travel a lot for work.

I will never go back to anything else!!! My question is do I need a moisturizer under this foundation since it has so many great ingredients? I tend to have oily TZone in the summer.

                            thank you for your question! The best way to determine the shade is to go by what shade you are currently wearing and than compare that shade to ours!

                        • Q:

                          Hi, I use Tan for the cc cream. Should I use tan for this foundation too? I find the cc cream in tan is almost perfect match but rather tad bit darker which is not that much noticeable, so I was wondering if I could go a shade lighter in this one ! Is it the same color? Or lighter or darker?
                          Thanks

                            Hi!
                            Thank you for your question!! The Medium shade is our most universal and has yellow undertones while the Tan is best for those with olive skin and who like to Tan!

                          I currently use BE in golden medium but I'd like to try this product. I am Asian and have yellow undertone. What's the best shade to use? Also, do you recommend using a translucent powder after applying this product?

                            Thank you for your question and for your interest in our Celebration Foundation Illumination!!!! WE would recommend our Tan shade for you as this is the most compatible with the above.

                            While you can absolutely use a finishing powder over the top of this to set most find that they do not need IT! However if they do, the Bye Bye Pores is amazing!

                            Bye Bye Pores HD Micro Finishing Powder is the perfect setting powder and all over face finishing powder. This powder is infused with hydro collagen to smooth lines, luxurious silk for a poreless finish, and vitamin K to help reduce discoloration.

                            XOXO

                          This product looks so much darker then the regular celebration foundation, why is that? I have a fair complexion and would use fair in regular celebration, but would worry about the illumination foundation even at lightest would be too dark!

                            Thank you for your question!! The foundation can look a bit different in the compact then it does on. the shades run to the same so what ever your wear in the original you would wear on this!

                          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!
