Not for dry skin

By Sofia

from Clifton, NJ

Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

I really wanted to love this because I had heard amazing things! Normally I stick to liquids because of my dry skin but I decided to try it. It flakes off and looked like it was clearly sitting on top my my skin- just bad all together. I use It's CC cream and it works a ton better!

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Good Pigmentation
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Difficult To Apply
  • Doesn't Stay On

Best Uses

  • Full Coverage
  • Normal Skin

Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

This product is great for anyone with problem skin. I have suffered from blemishes and acne scars and sun spots for as long as I remember. This product has great coverage with even minimal powder. It is a little hard to apply with the brush that comes with the compact. The tan color is not too orangey but just right for anyone who tans or has a natural tan complexion. Overall this product is great for anyone who likes a powder but doesn't want such a matte look.

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I have always struggled with foundations as they tend to break me out. It cosmetics foundations are just amazing. I have the liquid foundation and it is great. Looks like you have nothing on-just perfect skin. This powder one is also just as amazing. It gives your skin a luminous skin glow- very natural looking. Full coverage, just amazing. And no break outs! Lately I have acquired quite a few IT cosmetics items. It is a great brand- I have used many different others from drugstore to high end and nothing compares.
      Will definitely repurchase.

            This does not make me break out unlike every other powder/foundation I have tried. I have tried many other products, Lancôme, Bare Minerals, Bobbi Brown, and Origins to name a few. This is the best product and I love it! Great value for the money. If you use the concealer too it produces a nice finished look without looking cakey

            Very nice foundation, though somewhat pricey. I've been mixing it with my Bare Escentuals (Bare Minerals) powder foundation to last longer and not waste the BE foundation I've been using until this purchase of IT Cosmetics foundation. It really leaves a lovely finish to the skin.

                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!!

              2 questions: I have oily skin and struggle with adult acne. I have been using Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals foundation, but would like to try this. Is this safe for oily skin? Also, is the coverage heavier than BM foundation?

                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

              I use the light in your amazing CC cream. But use medium beige in BE Ready and Bare Natural in Bare Skin. I also use Golden Light in Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation, and Light Sand in Tarte 12 hour. Can you tell I love foundations? What shade should I use for this foundation?

                If you use Light in CC+ Cream, Light is most likely your best match in Celebration Foundation Illumination; however, we do recommend testing both Light and Medium shades at your nearest ULTA store to be sure:

                Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!!! We absolutely recommend using a brush!!! And we recommend either the Dual Foundation Brush or the Flat Top Brush!!! Both are amazing and apply the foundation flawlessly. With the Flat Top you simply buff the foundation on in a circular motion and with the dual foundation, you can use the larger end for all over and the smaller end for those harder to reach places! Hope this helps!!! XOXO

              There is no mention of SPF with this foundation. But I noticed titanium dioxide in the list of ingredients. So it is enough to be an SPF factor?

                A:

                Although this product does contain Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, IT Cosmetics cannot advertise that it contains SPF. Due to the new FDA monograph regulations, powder foundations no longer register an SPF even though they may contain a physical sunscreen, so IT Cosmetics does not state how much is in it.
