    Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

    This product is all and all a very good one. It only has one major drawback... it can look very cakey on my pores. It has really good coverage which is nice but it's not perfect. I will keep looking for that perfect powder foundation but I would never try and stop someone from buying this. It is great for those days that I'm in too much of a hurry to do anything else.

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I was skeptical when I saw a demonstration of the IT foundation line. However, I love this product! It is so easy to put on. It literally takes only seconds to apply and the full coverage is awesome. It feels so lightweight that I forget I am wearing makeup.

        I love the lightweight coverage but can not get past the strange smell. It is not horrible, but I wish they could remake this with a fresh clean smell.

          Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

          I love the way this foundation covers and how it feels. It can be a little heavy so I wear it on special occasions or when I need extra coverage. What I don't like about it is that is not great on oily skin, it slides off and it also sets into pores and wrinkles. I have to keep blotting through out the day to keep it looking good. I think this formulation is better and the color matches on my skin more than the regular celebration foundation. I am in the color light.

                    The product is great only problem is It didnt match my skin tone ..Tan was to light and Rich was too dark. So I got the IT sponge liquid in a compact (dont remember the name) it was great. I got rich and it matched perfectly.

                      I want to buy this product but I'm not sure if I should by light or fair because in the summer I would use light but my tan fades towards the winter so I would use fair. Which shade would I buy?

                        The Celebration Foundation Illumination typically lasts for 90 days if you use it everyday, though this may vary due to frequency of use and amount applied.

                        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:
