        Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

        I used the original Celebration Foundation, but found it to be too dry and cakey, so I was very excited to try this version. I do like this one better. It is very illuminating, almost too much so. I find that I have to blot my face after applying this powder because I look too "dewey". The coverage isn't exactly full. I'd say its more medium, but definitely buildable. The reason I don't give this product five stars is because I find the color runs pretty light. In most other brands, I'm a medium. However, in this brand, I need the tan. I learned this the hard way, after purchasing several products in medium and ended up looking like a ghost.

              Love this foundation. Leaves my skin hydrated and with a dewy glow . I don't feel like I have anything on. A little bit of product goes a long way! May not be for all skin types. My skin is pretty normal and I'm medium skin toned and I got the medium shade. Probably could even get tan during summer. I have olive undertones if that helps and the color is perfect !

                      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                      This foundation is the best I've ever used. After my skincare regimen (step 1 and 2 of Clinique 3 Step System) in the morning, I apply the Feel the Moment primer and then let it soak in for a few minutes while I put concealer on my dark circles around my eye area. Then I use the IT buffing brush to apply the foundation. Then I finish putting on my eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, and then I apply either IT finishing powder or Laura Geller's compact powder. In extreme heat, I do apply more powder, but sparingly. I have oily skin and the dreaded TZone. This foundation covers very well and makes my skin glow (and it isn't from the oily skin either). The only con is that I am fair with yellow undertones and the fair shade is too light while the light-medium shade is too dark. I order the light-medium shade and apply it to my neck so I do not have a makeup line. It would be great if IT could offer more shades like Tarte does (the fair sand shade and even the light sand shade is perfect).

                          All IT Cosmetics complexion products are formulated to be mixed and matched to blend seamlessly together, so any IT Cosmetics concealer formula works beautifully with Celebration Foundation Illumination. If you prefer an illuminating eye concealer, you may like Eyelift In A Tube, which can be applied to the under eye area over your foundation, as well as to anywhere on your face that you would like to highlight:

                          Fair is best for porcelain skin tones with cool/pink undertones.
                          Light Medium is best for peachy/pink, neutral skin tones.
                          Medium Beige is the most universal shade and works best on those with golden/olive undertones.
                          Tan is perfect if you are naturally tan or use self-tanner.
                          Rich is the darkest shade for deep complexions.

                          Please note that all shades can be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer!

                          A:

                          If the Tarte product you're referring to is Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, beyond the loose powder formula of that product vs. the pressed formula of this product, there are a few more differences:

                          Tarte features a fairly matte finish, while this product has an illuminating dewy finish.
                          Tarte's formula boasts 12 hours of wear, while IT Cosmetics claims this product has long lasting coverage, but does not claim exact wear.
                          Tarte's formula is waterproof, while this product's formula is not waterproof.

                          Both products are talc-free, synthetic fragrance-free, mineral oil-free, phthalates-free, and sodium lauryl sulfate-free.

                          Both products are formulated with soothing antioxidant botanical extracts to promote smooth, even skin tone and texture.

                          Both products feature buildable coverage and work well to conceal fine lines and wrinkles. A great product to apply underneath your foundation is IT Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Anti-aging Collagen Veil Primer, which further helps to smooth skin's texture prior to foundation application for a flawless finish:

                          A:

                          Yes, the original Celebration Foundation has more of a matte finish, while this product features more of a dewy, luminous finish. Both are formulated for all skin types including dry skin. To help ensure smooth application, apply moisturizer and primer prior to foundation application. We recommend Feel The Moment Anti-Aging Ultra Hydrating Sensory Awakening Primer Serum:
