    Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

    I am a foundation junkie and always avoided powders because my cheeks are dry and sensitive. This for not feel like a dry powder, it feels smooth and soft on my skin. I love how it covers. And I love the illumination it gives my skin.

            This powder didn't play well with my oily T-zone. It covered well, but was a bit drying. After a few hours it really accentuated my pores, and my pores aren't even that noticeable. I've tried with three different primers and I still have the same result. It's so bad that I'm embarrassed. I'll keep this and use it as a highlighter, but not for everyday wear. It reacts very strangely to my oily areas and creates an almost two-toned look that in natural light is horrifying. It's really easy to apply too much and it becomes cake very easily. For the price of this this product, I am extremely let down.

                  Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                  I've tried numerous powder foundations with lackluster results--poor or cakey coverage--this is a hands down winner. The medium shade appears natural on my light/medium skin tone and doesn't fade. It feels silky and light and imparts a subtle glow. In fact, I've used it over a tinted moisturizer when I want just a bit more coverage, but don't want the heaviness of a foundation. This is the first product I've ever tried by IT Cosmetics and I plan to delve further into this line.

                      I bought this product looking for something to help cover blemishes during that special time of month and for everyday use. So I bought it after being told it was a full coverage based foundation and that it would not clog my pores and cause breakout or more breakout. However, with my skin that was not the case. Even tho it covered the blemishes fairly well if not very well, it did cause my face to break out. Which to me I do not want to keep apply a foundation to cover a blemish only to create more blemishes. It is not a bad product but I would personally only recommend it to people who do not have sensitive skin or are not prone to break outs.

                        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.

                          We recommend testing both Fair and Light shades at your nearest ULTA store to determine your best match:
                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                          Fair works best for porcelain to fair skin tones with pink undertones, while Light works best for light skin tones with neutral to golden undertones.
