      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      Harder to find than the Loch Ness monster, this product is the ideal highlighter for skin that is less than perfectly smooth -- lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and/or pores. I use the standard Celebration foundation all over and use the Illuminating foundation the usual highlighting areas. No glitter, no sparkle and no accentuating the aspects that you trying to conceal -- AMAZING!

            I use the product every day, I have very uneven skin tone and it evens it out well. I doesn't stay well, maybe because I have oily skin. nonetheless I wish it would stay put a little longer. That combined with the price are a couple of reasons I no longer use it. The primary reason is that it gives off a yellow under tone to my skin. Think about making more colors.

                  Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                  I have fallen in love with this product. Prior to purchasing this product which was recommended to me by a dermalogica consultant I did not wear any products on my skin. I always had a problem applying foundation because I felt trapped because it felt like I was wearing a mask on my face. I apply this in the morning and never have to reapply it and forget that I am even wearing make-up. I do recommend that you purchase the brush that IT cosmetics makes for this product because the brush that it comes with does not provide even coverage. This product is pricey but is without a doubt worth every penny.

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!!! We are more than happy to help you with this today!!! If you feel the Medium is too light and washes you out, we first recommend trying to use a bronzer to warm your face up rather then go darker with your Foundation! If your foundation is too dark - you can end up looking orange and get that line of demarcation under the chin. So, it is best to use a bronzer and make sure you blend down your neck and chest!

                      We hope this helps!!

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!! These are great questions and we are more than happy to assist you today!!! The Celebration Foundation Illumination is great for oily skin as it not only helps hydrate your skin but it also helps control any oils!

                      We say that this foundation is buildable to full coverage as the coverage you get depends on the amount you use, so you do have some control over how heavy it looks!! It’s truly 30 seconds to full coverage and illumination to your skin! This Illuminating formula features the same good for you, skin loving ingredients you have come to know and love with the original Celebration Foundation, but with the added element of Illumination to add a subtle touch of radiance to your skin.

                      We hope this helps!!

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!! This is a great question and we are more than happy to help you with this today. Yes - the Celebration Foundation Illumination does work well over a moisturizer! The only thing we suggest is that once you apply the moisturizer that you wait a good 2 minutes for it to fully dry and set before applying the foundation. If you get moisture on the brush or sponge and then it transfers to the powder, it could cause a glazing issue! Hope this helps!! XOXO
