        Saw it on TV and wanted to try. Love the way it blends and the satin glowing finish. Blush in the package although small does the job. Strongly recommend.

          This foundation goes on smoothly and covers fully. Plus it lasts all day. I just blot away the oily areas throughout the day but the coverage stays without getting cakey/.

            Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

            Took me a little while, and the right brush (it cosmetic brush), to get the application right. Coverage is really good but kind of wears off on certain spots throughout the day. Will purchase again!

                          It gives a nice, smooth finish. I don't use this product as a foundation. I use it as a finishing powder on top of my regular foundation. It completes the look & smooths everything out. It makes the skin look porcelain.

                              Thank you for your question!! The Medium shade is our most universal and has yellow undertones while the Tan is best for those with olive skin and who like to Tan!

                              Thank you for your question and for your interest in our Celebration Foundation Illumination!!!! WE would recommend our Tan shade for you as this is the most compatible with the above.

                              While you can absolutely use a finishing powder over the top of this to set most find that they do not need IT! However if they do, the Bye Bye Pores is amazing!

                              Bye Bye Pores HD Micro Finishing Powder is the perfect setting powder and all over face finishing powder. This powder is infused with hydro collagen to smooth lines, luxurious silk for a poreless finish, and vitamin K to help reduce discoloration.

                            This product looks so much darker then the regular celebration foundation, why is that? I have a fair complexion and would use fair in regular celebration, but would worry about the illumination foundation even at lightest would be too dark!

                            hi, I have combination skin (dry patches and oily tzone & cheeks). as appealing as the illumination concept may be, I'm afraid that I will end up like an oil slick. Would you recommend the original formula instead or is the illumination formula suitable for truly combination skin? Thank you.

                              Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!! We are more than happy to help you with this today!! Our Illummination products do not contain glitter or shimmer or really any type of pearlized look - it really just gives you the added look of radiance and light. However, for those with oliy skin, we do recommend not using the Illumination products and sticking with the original!

                            Hello.. what is the difference between the regular "Celebration Foundation" and the "Celebration Foundation Illumination"... does one give more coverage than the other? I have very fair skin, dry and dull with some redness and scarring. Which of these products would you recommend for my skin type and which shade? I currently use Laura Geller Balance and Brighten Foundation in Fair. Finally, what is your return policy if color/shade and coverage is not satisfactory? Thank you for your assistance Cee Cee

                              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!

                              Hi!!! thank you for your question and your interest in our products!!! Shade wise we would recommend our Tan Foundation colors!!!!! As for what foundation to use with dry skin, it depends on just how dry your skin is! While the Celebration Foundation Illumination is very moisturizing for a powder, if you have super dry skin we recommend going with CC Cream instead!! CC+™ Cream with SPF 50+ is truly a multi-tasking beauty miracle. It's your SPF 50+ UVA/UVB Physical only sunscreen that protects against the rays that both burn your skin and age your skin. CC+™ is infused with cutting edge Anti-Aging technology and is clinically proven to improve skin texture, brightness and increase skin hydration by 79%. XOXOX
