makes my pores look HUGE

By georgia girl

from fl

Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

Has anyone else had this problem? I apply this with their heavenly luxe foundation brush, and other brushes as well, it doesn't help. It sinks into my pores on my nose and cheeks. I apply different primers, finish it with pore minimizing powder, nothing helps. I will wear a light layer with a fan brush to go to the store or something- but I'm disappointed. On the bright side, it really is full coverage. Very easy to go overboard with this, even if you blend your heart out

    This is the best makeup I've ever used. I am 61 and could never find powder makeup that didn't leave me feeling dry. But not this one. It is so smooth. I suggest you get the brush also and just buff it on. You want be sorry.

      Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

      I have very fair, acne-prone skin. I went into Ulta looking to get another full-coverage powder foundation because I have butterfly rash across my cheeks. When asking a consultant about what shade to get, she asked me what made me choose the brand I was looking at, and pointed me to this press powder. She was the sweetest girl at the Ulta in Fort Worth (wish I would've caught her name)! IT IS AMAZING. I am a strong believer in paying for high quality, and this went beyond my expectations. While I used to have to use concealer, a mousse foundation, and then set it all with a powder foundation; now I only use this powder! 7-10 minutes cut off of my mornings!

        Just use a nice foundation brish and sweep over the face. It covers quickly and easliy and lasts all day. I have found this to be the best powder foundation I've used.

        The Best!!!

        By Ashley485

        from Rhode Island

        Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

        This is a wonderful product. I was a long time user of Bare Minerals and this makeup blows that brand out of the water!! I love the "illumination" version because it really does illuminate. It helps mask any flaws and truly make your face look great in any light. I honestly feel my face has benefited from the regular use of this foundation, I've owned for a few months now. I use the "medium" shade. It gives me glow and color without being too dark or light, doesn't "settle" onto my face in an unflattering way either. I HIGHLY recommend this!!!

            This is a great full coverage foundation for those summer months. You get great coverage without the "heavy" feeling of a liquid foundation. I have maturing skin and this does not settle into my fine lines around my eyes. Very easy to apply. Get a good brush though!

                        I heard good things about this product and decided to give it a try since I have always had good results with IT products. I love the formula of this foundation, it is very smooth and buttery! It blends easily and has good, buildable coverage. It lasts all day even without a primer. This product is perfect for doing quick makeup or to keep in your purse. I have oily skin and the occasional breakouts with some past acne scars. I highly recommend this product and will definitely repurchase once I have finished it!

                            Thank you for your question and for your interest in our foundation!! The Fair does have the most pink undertones of all our foundations but is very porcelain. Our light is also on the cool side with peachy undertones!!

                            Hope this helps!!

                          I currently use BareMinerals original foundation in Fairly Light. What color in the Celebration Illumination foundation would work best for me? I have neutral undertones in my skin so it is very obvious when I wear foundations that are too pink or too yellow...

                            Thank you for your question! This would be great at covering up discoloration from the acne and will help hide the texture for sure but it is very hard to coverage up texture all the way. This should not clump the way you described by lay down evenly!!

                        • Q:

                          I am very interested in trying this product, but I have read different answers to the questions regarding what color to use. First of all, I'm a redhead, but not the usual extremely fair skinned redhead. Depending on the season, I wear Golden Fair, Light, and occasionally in summer,Golden Medium in BE. Needless to say, I have yellow undertones. I CANNOT wear any foundation with pink undertones. My question if of course, what shade do you recommend? I read one response the LIGHT has PEACH undertones, and works well for pink undertones. Then I have read that the FAIR has the pink undertones, while the LIGHT has neutral/yellow undertones.

                          Thank you!
