    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.

          Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

          This product is so great! I have moderate acne and I was looking for a product that would cover my blemishes without accentuating them. Powder foundations had never worked for me in the past because they would set into dry areas and show off my blemish. This foundation totally changed my life! I love that it's a powder because it doesn't clog my pores like a liquid foundation, but still has complete full coverage. Best foundation I've ever used! It honestly works for me on my dry skin days and my oily days. My only two complaints are that 1. It does wear off IF I don't set it with Urban Decay's Deslick setting spray (I'm sure a lot of setting sprays would work, that one is just my favorite) 2. Sometimes it gives me wrinkles where I don't have wrinkles. It sets into any line in my face (AND I'M 18)! Using a primer helps with this, but I don't know where these wrinkles are even coming from! Otherwise, it's a great product. The pros definitely outweigh the cons

          Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

          I usually put on a primer before using this product then powder over it. It goes on great but it doesn't do as much coverage as I thought it would. I do not have acne or any serious skin conditions. I just usually get redness on my cheeks and it comes through after 30 minutes to an hour after applying. So I use more than I should and I feel that if I am paying over $30 for a foundation then it needs to last more than 3 months!

                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.
