        Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

        I am very disappointed in this product. For years I used bare minerals foundation, but in the last year or so I've switched back to liquid for a longer lasting, full coverage. I decided to try this after seeing great reviews on youtube, and wanting something that I could apply quickly and would feel less heavy, provide a dewy finish, and cover well. It looks great when I first apply it, but by the time I get to work I feel shiny and look like I have no foundation on at all (red spots showing, pores looking huge, etc). It is not long lasting, does not cover well, and overall has been extremely disappointing. Maybe its the humidity where I live, but this stuff just slides right off, even with a primer and a setting spray. I wish I had never bought this product.

        Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

        I returned this and purchased the regular Celebration Foundation. This was not good for oil absorption at all. The slightest bit of oil makes the foundation extremely cakey. I am planning on returning the regular foundation I purchased. This product would be good for some people, just not me.

            This is an improvement over the original foundation as it adds a touch of illumination without "sparkle" or "glitter" look. Coverage is buildable and it lasts a full day. Easy to apply and a great for those who don't want a gloppy, slippery foundation.

                  We are more than happy to help you with this today!!! Celebration Foundation Illumination is the same award winning formula infused with a blend of anti-aging skin-loving ingredients including the drops of light technology and a natural, youthful luminescence!

                  Both of these foundations are full coverage, created with plastic surgeons to cover skin imperfections but never settle in fine lines and wrinkles. Foundation should never make you look older! Original foundation has a matte finish. Illumination has a subtle radiance. It's not shiny. It's not metallic. This full-coverage powder foundation, anti-aging formula treats your skin with hydrolyzed collagen, antioxidants, silk, and aloe, and it gives the skin a soft, candlelit glow. We like to think of Celebration Foundation Illumination as your most beautiful day…in a compact!

                  IT is really all about your preference and the look you are going for! Many IT girls use both and love the results so you can - but you don't need it. We recommend trying IT out at your local Ulta to see if this works for you!

                  IF you are finding that you need more coverage than the Celebration Foundation, we would recommend the bye bye under eye concealer.

                  We are so happy to hear that you are using so many amazing IT products already and thrilled you are adding more! If you're using a powder foundation, we recommend you apply the concealer first and bye bye redness first, then your powder foundation to prevent any creasing. Just be sure the concealer is fully dried before applying the powder. The Hello Light powder would go on over the top as your last step of the makeup process. XOXO
